President Trump rebuked NFL legend Drew Brees for apologizing — twice — for saying he doesn’t agree with kneeling during the national anthem.

Brees is a Super Bowl champion who has donated $33 million to charity. A sizable amount of Drew’s donations benefit low-income and minority communities.

Despite his generosity and longstanding reputation as an all-around good guy, left-wing outrage mobs attacked Brees for expressing his opinion that he would never kneel during the national anthem and doesn’t agree with the hollow gesture.

After Brees issued a groveling apology, President Trump tweeted: “I am a big fan of Drew Brees. I think he’s truly one of the greatest quarterbacks, but he should not have taken back his original stance on honoring our magnificent American Flag…There are other things you can protest, but not our Great American Flag – NO KNEELING!”


Brees responded by issuing a second groveling apology. Why? Because one apology only emboldens the outrage mob to whine and demand more submission.

Drew posted a second, conciliatory statement on Instagram.

Drew Brees wrote:

“Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been.

We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial and prison reform.

We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history! If not now, then when?”

Ironically, the NFL, black leaders, and Black Lives Matter never demanded that Barack Obama address “systemic racism” during his two terms in office. They waited until President Trump stepped into the Oval Office in 2017.

Why didn’t leftists demand slavery reparations when we had a black president — one that tens of millions of whites voted for in “racist America”?

Why didn’t Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters do anything to address “systemic racism” during their combined 133 years in politics?

Brees then ignored the countless black-on-black murders that account for most of the black deaths in the United States every year and urged white people to solve the problem.

“We must acknowledge the problems, identify the solutions, and then put this into action,” Drew said. “The black community cannot do it alone.”

Millions of Americans agree that you shouldn’t negotiate with terrorists who emotionally blackmail you under the guise of “social justice.”

Black Trump supporter Brandon Tatum is a former police officer and the co-founder of Blexit.

Tatum tweeted: “I no longer support Drew Brees. He had an opportunity to be a voice of reason and take a stand. Now, he has fallen to the mob. Until he is eating out of the hands of black activists, it will never be enough. What a shame.”

Former CIA analyst Buck Sexton noted: “No matter how decent, conscientious, and upstanding you are, once you bend the knee to the mob, they will never stop. They will not accept an apology, only submission. They do not offer forgiveness, but demand humiliation. Never, ever, bend the knee.”

Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley says the race riots in Democrat-run cities following George Floyd’s death are based on the flagrant lie that scores of racist white cops are out there hunting down black men.

Riley said the media promote the false narrative that there has been a spike in racially-charged incidents involving the police because any time this happens, the press hypes it around-the-clock.

“[There’s] blanket media coverage when they happen because of social media, but this does not mean that this is happening more often,” Riley remarked. “Those two things are not distinguished in much of the coverage. And I find that very disturbing.”
