  • ESPN Columnist Slams Cops Singing National Anthem

    Not only Police,meh doesn't want the national anthem sang, he doesn't want a military fly over or a honor guard.
    According to this guy any representation of the flag or the nation, or of law enforcement stiffiles athlete minorities.

    ESPN Magazine's Howard Bryant wrote in a new column that law enforcement officers singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" is "staged patriotism," arguing that it signals an "authoritarian shift at the ballpark."

    With all the blogs, you tube channels, podcasts, 24 hours news and sports networks, sports radio and hundreds of channels on television it's not surprising that anyone is allowed to get on air and spew out nonsense like Bryant did.

      What a dumb bastard! The authoritarian shift occurs when the umpires come on the field.

      I have disabilities and have had trouble with my local law enforcement failing to recognize them, which inevitably led to additional issues and some mistrust on my part. That being said, I like seeing the police out and about when there are no conflicts. I like chatting with them when there isn't any conflict. I like seeing law enforcement and military honor guards at special events.

      If anyone has an issue with a symbolic gesture of patriotism by the people who keep us safe, then they need to pick a career where they risk their safety to protect others.

        No...if anyone has an issue with law enforcement and patriotism, they need to pick another country to live in.

        Don't like something - avoid it. DO NOT demand that everyone else change to suit you.

              ESPN is a joke. They were bought by Disney and are aligned with ABC "News". They have become just another station with a political bias "left wing" of course.

                They also make your Cable bill much higher than it should be, if you are one of those people that still pay for that crap.

                Presumably, this "reporter" had no problems with the Cops at San Jose standing by and just watching Trump supporters being assaulted.

                Yeah, go figure.
