MLB players fan the flames with more anti-patriotic symbolism

Posted By on July 24, 2020

It’s an uncomfortable time to be a freedom-loving and patriotic American who misses old days of going about day to day business without wearing a facemask or triggering someone by “wearing” something with the wrong message. Heaven forbid a social media unaware person thinks (well, says out loud)  “All Lives Matter” rather than only certain people’s lives as with woke folks. I’m still not sure how many people knowingly or unknowingly differentiate the BLM Marxist organization from the “Black Lives Matter” slogan?

Cincinnati Reds players kneel during National Anthem – July 22, 2020

With today’s divisive politics and the real (or politically hyped, who knows)  COVID19 Coronavirus dread looming, we are all looking for an escape. Of course, professional sports have always been there for this … even in wartime, but unfortunately,those playing professional sports are also active in the politics of the day (do they fear protests or violence from the cancel culture?) Most recently, Major League Baseball clearly reminds us we are in a pandemic and must “wear a mask” … and that we have different political views.

Perhaps one semi-distracting moment that lightened the week was when the Whitehouse Coronavirus Task Force‘s Dr. Anthony Fauci threw out the first pitch at a Washington Nationals game. It triggered enough endorphins to at least give social media something “light” to talk about (laughter is a great Rx to help with depression).
