Ted Cruz calls on BOYCOTT of ‘rich spoiled athletes’ who protest during National Anthem

Ted Cruz is calling for patriotic Americans everywhere to boycott these “rich spoiled athletes” who protest during the national anthem:

WASHINGTON TIMES – Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday called for a boycott of “rich spoiled athletes” who refuse to stand during the national anthem.

“To all the athletes who have made millions in America’s freedom: stop insulting our flag, our nation, our heroes,” the Texas Republican tweeted in response to ESPN analyst Jalen Rose, who praised professional football players for protesting the U.S. flag.

“Here’s a peaceful protest,” Mr. Cruz continued, “never buy another shoe, shirt, or jersey of rich spoiled athletes who dishonor our flag.”

Multiple black NFL players have joined San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in sitting down or kneeling during “The Star Spangled Banner” in a protest against police brutality and racial bias, The Hill reported.

Four Miami Dolphins kneeled on the sideline with hands on their hearts as the national anthem played ahead of their season opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, which marked the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“I would like to keep moving forward in the right direction with everybody: equal rights, equal opportunity,” said Miami’s Jelani Jenkins, one of the Dolphins to kneel. “From my position, it doesn’t seem that it’s happening. That’s why I took a stand.”

Cruz is absolutely right. These players doing the Kaepernick protest don’t deserve our admiration or our money if they are willing to insult America in this way.
