Major League Baseball made sure the national anthem for Game 7 of the World Series would be a memorable one.
Contrary to the revisionist history being re-written in real-time, the major justification for Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem was that police were purportedly killing African Americans at a disproportionate rate.
Nonetheless, the National Football League chose to continue its “awareness raising” of the bogus narrative by permitting players to engage in protests (and specifically, this political protest) during the national anthem of football games.
Major League Baseball, despite a few moments of national anthem protesting, has been relatively above the fray. Earlier during the World Series, a seventh inning stretch rendition of “God Bless America” infuriated left-wing observers.
Tonight, its choice to bring out police officers got a big seal of approval.
NFL millionaires take note…

MLB shoving it up NFL’s ass having cops sing National Anthem. Can they be more diametrically opposed?

As an added blow to the NFL’s rep – or rather, what’s left of it – all the players apparently stood, and many even put their hands over their hearts.
