“We’ve said people should be able to exercise their right to kneel during the National Anthem and we should listen & hear their reasons why,” said legendary coach and devoted Christian Tony Dungy this afternoon. “When Jonathan Isaac chooses to stand we should do the same.”
He is referring to the stunning display of courage and heart by basketball player Jonathan Isaac, who ALONG among his teammates chose to STAND for our National Anthem, the first NBA player this season to do so. An act for which he is now under assault from the forces of the left over his forbidden free expression.
Magic’s Jonathan Isaac chooses to remain standing as the rest of the Magic and Nets players and coaches take a knee and lock arms during the national anthem.

Here’s a report from Orlando:
And the comments from Isaac himself, as well as from head coach Steve Clifford.
“Kneeling while wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt doesn’t go hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives,” said the courageous Isaac.
“I support him, his teammates support him, the organization supports him. So, that’s part of living in our country,” said coach Clifford.
That’s exactly what Tony Dungy said.
We’ve said people should be able to exercise their right to kneel during the National Anthem and we should listen & hear their reasons why. When Jonathan Isaac chooses to stand we should do the same. He explained his reasons very clearly-he wants to stand in prayer. I say Amen!🙏🏽 https://t.co/lu0JZR0SYh

Here’s another great comment.
We worked way too hard defending Kaepernick's right to kneel to turn around and not respect Jonathan Isaac's right to stand.
I'll say the same thing I said to people mad at Kaep.
You may not like it but it is his right.

But there are a lot of NOT great tweets about it. Y’all can imagine what they’re like, or go look them up, but I ain’t gonna share that mess here.
