Philadelphia Eagles Plan To Disrespect Heroes Monday Night

Members of the Philadelphia Eagles are planning a protest for their Monday Night football game against the Chicago Bears this week. Their top ranked defensive player, safety Malcolm Jenkins, is spearheading the protest.

Jenkins stated that they did not hold a protest last weekend due to it being the anniversary of one of the most horrific tragedies in America; 9/11. “To make sure we didn’t…take away from the families that suffered from 9/11.” Jenkins advised sports radio WIP.

While I commend them for doing so, unlike many of their counterparts such as Colin Kaepernick and the Miami Dolphins, both of which openly disrespected American Heroes on 9/11, the Philadelphia Eagles are inevitably going to be dishonoring those heroes who selflessly made the ultimate sacrifice that day anyway. The national anthem and our flag represent those sacrifices. It does not matter what day the song is played.

Malcolm insists that their protests are unrelated to the flag and the national anthem.  “It has nothing to do with this country or the flag or the anthem.” Really it’s just to continue to push forward the conversation about social injustice. And that’s… a range of things from police brutality to wages and job opportunities and education.”

Again, we hear the term of police brutality, a term brought upon by a series of convoluted stories of justified police uses of force. Well Malcolm, how about the brutality towards police? A hero was just shot at point blank last night 15 times. 8 of those 15 rounds found their target, a black police hero; Sergeant Sylvia Young. She was not the only hero shot in your city, University of Pennsylvania Officer Eddie Miller was shot as well. They were shot by a person who supports your twisted mindset of a false narrative.

So to you Malcolm and the rest of the players in the National Football League that join you in your protest, while you raise your “power fists,” kneel during our anthem, and disrespect those who make the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms that permit you to do so, remember Sergeant Sylvia Young, Officer Eddie Miller, and the countless other heroes who have sacrificed for you.
