Desperate Democrats continued to reach a new low on Tuesday, with some liberal lawmakers “taking a knee” on the floor of the House of Representatives to show solidarity with NFL players who protested the US national anthem over the weekend.
Rep. Mark Pocan, Sheila Jackson Lee, and others knelt on the House floor in protest of President Trump’s harsh criticism of professional athletes who refuse to stand during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
“There is no basis in the First Amendment that says you cannot kneel on the national anthem or in front of the flag,” said Lee. “That is racism. You cannot deny it, you cannot run from it.”
Rep. Pocan also “took a knee” in Congress, blasting the President’s comments as “racist” and saying he stands “in solidarity” with NFL players who choose to protest the anthem.
“It’s a sign of love of country, a country with a promise that has to be for everyone, regardless of the color of their skin. So I join so many now in the NFL and elsewhere in taking a knee for the America we all aspire it to be,” said Pocan.
