Bill O’Reilly: When Jaguars and Ravens Kneeled Down on Foreign Soil – Soldiers Serving in Kandahar Were Watching
Former FOX News star Bill O’Reilly joined Sean Hannity Tuesday to discuss the recent NFL anthem protests and the unhinged liberal media.
Bill O’Reilly slammed the Jaguars and Ravens for their disgusting stunt in London.
NFL player protests exploded Sunday after President Trump lashed out at the players for kneeling during the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).
At least a dozen NFL players kneeled during the anthem before the London game today between the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.
They did this in London.
These same players who knelt during the national anthem stood for the British anthem ‘God Save the Queen’. Unreal.
Bill O’Reilly let them have it.
O’Reilly: I want to address this comment to the NFL players today. And I know they’ll get this. When the Jaguar and Ravens were over in London and they kneeled down on foreign soil and then they stood up for the British anthem –
Hannity: ‘God Save the Queen.’
O’Reilly: I was angry and sad because I don’t believe those players know what they’re doing. About 3,000 miles east of you, there are American military people in Kandahar, Afghanistan, whose entertainment revolves around the Armed Forces Network that broadcasts football games. Now I was over there in ’07. I watched football games with them. Could you imagine putting your life on the line in Afghanistan and having just the leisure time and wanting to watch a football game and seeing your players disrespect the country and the flag on foreign soil. Can you imagine how painful that was?
Bill nailed it.
What a horrible day for America.
