There’s nothing more American than being … American

This viral video of Beto O’Rourke is making its rounds. And for good reason. It’s a common sense approach to the manufactured NFL controversy about players taking a knee during the National Anthem.

Beto O’Rourke is running against Ted Cruz for one of Texas’ two Senate seats. Ted Cruz is whiny, failed presidential candidate who carries ultra far right views and is practically taking out his whole failed high school career into every approach he takes on Capitol Hill.

The big quote in the response to a question about NFL players kneeling is:

I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights anytime, anywhere, any place.

For me, football is the dumbest sport ever invented. But I admire these guys who are making the president and all of his racist followers squeal at the beginning of each game.

Excellent.
