You can sit down or get on your knees to protest the national anthem, but God forbid an army vet stand to honor our nation.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is going after one of his players, Afghan war veteran, Alejandro Villanueva for being proud of the country he risked his life to protect.
The majority of the Steelers decided during a team meeting to hide in their locker room like cowards instead of stepping to the sidelines (as NFL league rules require) for the playing of the national anthem.
One man refused to be a sheep and play the liberal hashtag activism game for a cause they can’t even clearly define because let’s be honest – alleged police brutality hasn’t changed one lick since Trump started his successful presidential campaign.
And unlike the guy who started this whole controversy, Colin Kaepernick's, whose activism consists of posting pictures of cops depicted as pigs to his social media accounts and dropping to his knees, Villanueva knows the cost of freedom of speech and the protection thereof. As such Villanueva is one of their targets.

Coach your fired
Get rid of the coaches$#%&[email protected]*
Fire that coach!
What an ignorant hypocrite
you naive little fool. We shall crush you.
God, country , family then football.
Of course the Veteran exercising HIS 1st amendment rights receives the shun and shame game. Fuckers!
Beth: DO your job, get your team together as one and show respect on the field, which is for sports ONLY! Leave your politics out of it and get back to playing ball. Many people go to sports for relaxation and to get away from politics for a while. That is what your job is about – do it ~~!!
You’re the only one who deserves respect. They should be apologizing to you for their disrespect to our flag. Their political protests should be left outside of the stadium!!!
Ed Robertson, I agree that every one of us has the freedom to either stand or take a knee as one sees fit. But I would be willing to bet a substantial amount of money that ninety percent of the players haven’t a clue why they are doing so. Kapernicht sat out the anthem to protest the fact that a larger percent of those of the black persuasion were being arrested and imprisoned. What he was overlooking was the statistics backed by FBI statistics proving that blacks committed violent crimes at a much higher rate than any other race.
