BOOM: QB’s Wife SLAMS National Anthem Protesters!

on

Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions married a good woman.  Kelly Stafford posted her thoughts on the NFL protests via Instagram.

Needless to say, she was fearful of the backlash.  Eventually, she realized it was her duty to discuss the matter.  She posted on her Instagram a heartfelt message about democracy.  It was accompanied with an American flag.

"If you think the country can be better, stand for the ideal. If you think the answer is people showing unity, stand with them. The anthem is not the national police song. The anthem is not the national racists song. The anthem is an exercise in how this country can endure and rise, how we can agree on its future potential, even while struggling with its present. The anthem’s words depict a flag that is suffering through bombs and rockets. You could easily view those bombs and rockets as the challenges our democracy faces today, and the flag a symbol of rising above them." -Mitch albom I've been hesitant to talk about this, as I know I will get backlash from it.. but I believe we can stand and show our unity against everything that doesn't represent what this flag stands for. Let's stand united against terrorists, against racism, against white supremacists, against killing of cops, against police brutality, against sex slave trafficking.. against anything that is not the ideal for this country. Let's unite in the fact that God made us all unique and different and that is something we should cherish. You can disagree with me and that is totally ok.. let's use this forum to discuss (not yell at each other) and listen to one another. #landofthefree #homeofthebrave #illstandwithyou #nfl #standunited #unitedwestand

Some people agreed with Kelly.  In fact, she echoes sentiments from world-famous boxer George Foreman.  Others had some vile words for her.  From user @wmurray_23:

“No one gives a sh*t what you think. As a white female you don’t have a clue what others are going thru. Have fun in your ivory tower.”

Regrettably, we live in a society where opinions are not respected.  Ms. Stafford followed up in a later post:

I truly meant no disrespect with my last post.  If you know me personally, you know I love (mostly) everyone and I try to be as open as possible!  I want us all to be united and I think that takes putting opinions out there, hearing them, and discussing whether agreeing or not…I believe that’s what inspires change.  There are many comments that have truly opened my eyes to things I did not think about or know.  I hope the posts and discussions keep happening.  I will continue to read when I can…but right now it’s time to handle these two babes.

As observed in preseason games, kneeling during the national anthem is likely to continue.  Big names such as Marshawn Lynch of the Oakland Raiders are participating.

All this started in the 2016 preseason when Colin Kaepernick decided to take a knee during the national anthem.  Since then, the league has been accused of discrimination for refusing to sign him.
