TV Host Mike Rowe isn’t someone who typically gets involved in the political arena. Being that his fans are huge NFL supporters, it has been hard for the public figure to stay out of the NFL scandal that has dragged all the top coaches, players and even the president into the middle of this chaos. Rowe reams everyone, including the president, on this national anthem protest issue after one of his fans asked him: “I know you avoid politics, (thanks!) and I remember your rant on the Colt’s leaving Baltimore. (As a former Brown’s fan, I feel your pain.) But I gotta ask – what’s happening to professional football, and what do you make of Trump’s comments about those who refuse to stand during the national anthem?” “In democracies, we the people get the government we deserve,” Rowe began. “We also get the celebrities we deserve, the artists we deserve, and the athletes we deserve. Because ultimately, we the people get to decide who and what gets our attention, and who and what does not.” Addressing the issue at hand he stated, “Right now, the NFL, the players who choose to kneel, the networks who choose to broadcast their protest, the advertisers who sponsor the games, and the President of the United States, are all eager for our attention. And they are all using football to get it. That’s all well and good, right up to the point where it isn’t. In my view, this controversy really isn’t about patriotism, social justice, racial inequality, or free speech. It’s not even about the flag or the national anthem. It’s really only about one thing – what we will tolerate, and what we won’t. Then he took a hit at Click to see the original article
