LevinTV host Mark Levin blasted the recent string of NFL protests in a Facebook post Monday evening, writing “The NFL is looking more repulsive by the day.”
“Billionaires and millionaires linking arms and taking knees in unity for what?” Levin wrote. “There are brave men and women in real uniforms but you won’t find them on the football field. You’ll find them in the military and law enforcement. They’re not famous. They’re not rich. But they’re our very best. They put their lives on the line everyday. And they’re being disrespected.”
Over the weekend, hundreds of NFL players decided to #TakeTheKnee during the national anthem, in response to President Trump’s harsh criticism of those who “disrespect” the flag.
Levin called these players “fake activists” and “fake entertainers.”
“The NFL has revealed itself to be a collection of spoiled narcissists where self-aggrandizing groupthink Is celebrated,” Levin wrote. “This isn’t about free speech. It’s about the American people, and particularly the fans, increasingly repulsed by the antics on the football field.”
