Well, the shenanigans continue from the left. This weekend we were treated to vitriol and hatred over the the New England Patriots and their “whiteness,” along with continued protests over President Trump’s travel order (now under a temporary stay).
Football should be “just a game” but of course we know that’s not the case, since it’s so interwoven into the fabric of our nation and has of late become a soapbox for players to express their political beliefs.
Now stepping up to the soapbox is Patriot’s tight end Martellus Bennett, who says he’ll be boycotting the traditional trip to the White House to meet with the president to celebrate this victory.
“I’m not going to go,” the tight end said in a postgame interview, per the Huffington Post, following the Patriots’ historic win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The team overcame a 25-point deficit, the largest in Super Bowl history. It was also the first time the big game had run into overtime.
Asked why, Bennett responded, “It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.”
In this clip below, Bennett repeatedly says people should just accept others for who they are – but in this case it would seem he’s not exactly practicing what he preaches.
Should you not accept Donald Trump as the president, and not graciously accept his congratulations for your victory? Apparently not.
Oh well Mr. Bennett. Your loss.
