The only takeaway from yesterday’s pre-game dueling anthems prior to the Baltimore Ravens-Cleveland Browns game is that the players are ignorant but useful tools or they’re knowingly lying to themselves and us about the devastation that comes when Marxism takes root in a country.
While all but two Baltimore Ravens players stood during the ‘black national anthem,’ most either took a knee or sat down as the American national anthem was played.
Rough estimate but I’d say over half of the Ravens players took a knee during the national anthem. Browns players stood together but a few players took a knee. pic.twitter.com/ntkVITBCdS

While the NFL and its players are celebrating Black Lives Matter they have either failed to even visit the BLM website to learn what they were supportive of or, they are in agreement with the radical Marxist’s agenda.
According to their website, BLM calls for the immediate imposition of Marxism, the end of the paternally-led family, and rejection of the ‘white fault’ of striving to be the best you can be.
(USA Today) In a New York Times tribute headlined, “Happy Birthday, Karl Marx. You Were Right!” philosophy professor Jason Barker declared that “educated liberal opinion is today more or less unanimous in its agreement (with) Marx’s basic thesis” on the flaws of capitalism. But this is true only if “educated liberal opinion” simply does not care about tyranny.
But Marxism in practice didn’t work out so well. Communist regimes produced the greatest ideological carnage in human history, killing more than a hundred million people in the last century. While some apologists claim it is unfair to Marx to blame him, the seeds of tyranny were there from the start.
Already, we have witnessed the the leftist fascists targeting police officers for death. Likewise, the killing of Trump supporters for having a different political viewpoint.
The current crop of leftist anarchists calling for a socialist economic system, on one hand decry the power of the state and its cozy relationship with multinational corporations, and on the other are clamoring for turning all future political power over to the government.
And, to give up any future ability to reclaim power for the people by turning over their guns, as well.
In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things… David Mamet
Regimes that embraced Marxism quickly evolved into all-powerful regimes that quickly became ends in themselves.
Last season, the minimum annual salary for a rookie active roster player with a one-year contract, the league’s lowest salary, was $480,000. That’s eight times the median family income for the rest of the country.
The average NFL salary for the 2019 season, according to CNBC, was $2.7 million. The league is composed of 80% black players. Pardon the rest of us little people who want to know where’s the racism?
Average Americans, football fans, have had enough of being told they’re racists when they’re not. They’re resentful of those trying to undermine the capitalist system that has given them a comfortable existence and the ability to compete for better…
Ratings for NFL Season Opener Tank as League Gets Political ?? https://t.co/S306l2kn5c

(The Deadline) Despite two teams with big national followings, SNF snared a 4.7 in early ratings among adults 18-49 and 14.81 million viewers last night.
In numbers certain to change, that’s a fall of 28% in the demo and a hard decline of 23% in sets of eyeballs from the early numbers of the September 8, 2019 SNF season debut. While the early Nielsen data lacks West Coast numbers — kind of important when you have a team from the Los Angeles market in the mix — this result is going to be a hard pill for the NFL and NBC to swallow.
