Kudos to this kid for havin the guts to stand against the racial derisiveness and bigotry of the NBA. Not only standing for the NA but refusing to wear a BLM shirt.

 

Jonathan Isaac, a forward on the Orlando Magic, stood for the national anthem and did not wear a Black Lives Matter t-shirt for today’s game against the Brooklyn Nets. He was the first NBA player in the bubble to do so. After the game, he was asked about that and answered:

“Absolutely [I believe] that Black lives matter,” Isaac said. “A lot went into my decision and part of it is my thought that kneeling or wearing a black lives matter t-shirt don’t go hand in hand with supporting black lives.”

“My life has been supported by the gospel of Jesus Christ,” Isaac continued. “Everyone is made in the image of God and we all share in His glory. Each and everyone of us each and every day do things we shouldn’t do. We say things we shouldn’t say. We hate and dislike people that we shouldn’t hate and dislike. And sometimes it gets to the point where we point fingers about whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to simply whose evil is most visible. I felt like I wanted just take a stand on — I felt like we all make mistakes but I think the gospel of Jesus Christ is that there’s grace for us. And that Jesus came and died for our sins. And that we all will come to an understanding of that and that God wants to have a relationship with us.”

the messages are different, but my respect for their rights to express their political opinions is very much the same.

It’s America. It’s called freedom. 

You’re free to join the herd and you’re free to be an individual.

Ha ha

Or you use a stool to give him a hug. You know, not to feel like a little girl.


Crazy that such a simple act is indeed a brave one these days!

Sad indeed but in this climate of “cancel culture” it IS brave to buck convention.

Would guess Alejandro Villanueva a bronze star recipiant won't kneel either, he's the only one who came out for the anthem when the rest of the team cowered in the tunnel.

Just think, it wasn’t that long ago when the left wing idiots were losing there mind over Tim Tebow kneeling at football games. I have said before that liberals no longer even try to hide their blatant hypocrisy.

And just think, it wasn't long after that when right wing idiots lost their mind over black people kneeling

Jonathan Isaac is a man who knows the party behind BLM is the party behind the murder of 22,000,000 black unborn babies since the founding of Planned Parenthood.

Its crazy how now it is offensive and evil to stand for the anthem. We are in total bizarro world and it shows how powerfully manipulative our media truly is.

There is a world where the kneeling thing could have been okay. It got off to a bad start because Kaepernick is retarded and a terrible spokesman (pig socks, Guevera shirt, etc.).  He's just not a smart guy. Savvy though. He's made bank off this move.  There have also been many other terrible spokespeople that do not help. Lebron, Bennett, etc. Just not well organized for the purpose of unity and real movement. 

 

And then the black lives matter movement taking over everything. very divisive group. Very sad. they made this problem what it is. There are thing everybody could do better, but there is no middle ground where we can have a conversation about getting there. That's not what this is about. It is about power.
