Two Texas teens were thrown off their high school football team after they knelt in protest for the national anthem.
The two teens from Victory & Praise Christian Academy in Crosby, Texas planned the protest in advance — and even told their coach — who immediately asked his players to take off their uniforms and booted them off the team
Their coach, military veteran Ronnie Ray Mitchem, warned the boys of the consequences when they told him their plan to protest.
“There is a proper time to do something in a proper way,” Mitchem told ABC’s KTRK.
“I want this put on here,” Mitchem told the interviewer. “I have nothing against those young men. I love them.”
In the aftermath, Cedric Ingram-Lewis and Larry McCullough from Victory & Praise Christian Academy in Crosby, Texas said they were happy about the publicity their protest got.
Mitchem has stopped watching NFL games due to the players’ protests of the national anthem, meant to raise awareness for what they see as systemic racism in America.
“As a veteran I have a strong view of what I feel is disrespectful.”
This is what should happen to any player of any sport who disrespects the flag and our national anthem.
There are certain cultures in our country that needs to be corrected big time. This whole victimization crap and setting themselves up for failure only to blame others who had nothing to do with it whatsoever. Yea the country has been sick and tired of these punks of our great society that trying to take everyone down with them. It’s frustrating how the left is the cause yet we let them get away with it all.
