Major League Baseball quietly slammed NFL protesters with its national anthem at World Series

Major League Baseball made sure the national anthem for Game 7 of the World Series would be a memorable one.

Instead of coddling cop-hating players like the currently unemployed Colin Kaepernick (perhaps, not for long), MLB brought out the Los Angeles Police Department quartet to sing the national anthem.

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.

Turns out, that’s not the case, as an exhaustive study at Harvard shows, and as was covered in the New York Times.

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.

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.
