The Lefts (brilliant) scam behind the #NFL anthem protests – Hot Air (Ban the NFL?)

The Left’s (brilliant) scam behind the NFL anthem protestsJazz ShawPosted at 10:41 am on September 26, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter104It didn’t happen until last night. For the entire time that the recent spate of highly inflamed National Anthem protests on NFL playing fields has been unfolding this year, there’s been something nagging at the back of my mind.
