HERO Giants Player Sam Coonrod Refuses to Kneel: ‘I Can’t Kneel Before Anything Besides God’ and Black Lives Matter ‘Lean Toward Marxism’

San Francisco Giants player Sam Coonrod refused to kneel before the anthem with the rest of his team, asserting that he “will not kneel before anything besides God.”

The brave athlete also called out the fact that Black Lives Matter “leans towards Marxism” and have said “negative things about the nuclear family.”

“Coonrod seems to be missing the point of the ribbon display: It was meant to be an anodyne alternative to actual protest. Even if you believe that kneeling during the national anthem is somehow disrespectful to the military, kneeling during a Morgan Freeman speech gives you another way to show support with risking blowback,” Sports Illustrated wrote. “And in fact, last night only a handful of Dodgers and Giants (Mookie Betts, San Francisco manager Gabe Kapler and Pablo Sandoval among them) were brave enough to kneel during the anthem.”
