Last week ESPN network had informed the N.F.L. it did not plan on televising the playing of the anthem on its “Monday Night Football” telecasts this season. This is why at a Tuesday’s rally in Charleston, West Virginia, President Donald Trump criticised ESPN’s decision to not broadcast the playing of the anthem.
“You’re proud of our country,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd. “You’re proud of our history, and unlike the NFL, you always honor and cherish our great American flag.”
It was just announced by ESPN that rather than defending our anthem, our beautiful, beautiful national anthem and defending our flag, they’ve decided that they just won’t broadcast when they play the national anthem. We don’t like that.”
On Wednesday, Trump began a petition to pressure ESPN to air the national anthem ahead of its Monday night football games. President Trump launched a petition to force “SPINELESS” ESPN to air the playing of the national anthem on “Monday Night Football” broadcasts.
“Just after we heard a sitting governor trash America, ESPN has now decided it will no longer play the National Anthem before Monday Night Football,” the petition said. “If ‘America’ is too offensive for anyone in our country, then what are they doing in America?’”

Also, the committee’s website hosts a page that calls for people to sign up to “Denounce ESPN’s Surrender.”
“I’m calling on you to join me in denouncing this SPINELESS surrender to the politically correct liberal mob. I was the first person to sign this petition. Now I need you to follow my lead and be the second,” the email concluded.
Respect for the national anthem of your country should be a very basic concept. If you are unable to respect the land you live in, then leave, it’s that simple.
ESPN not playing the anthem is disrespectful, and it’s especially disrespectful of the players who choose to kneel or do other things while it’s playing. The anthem is not the proper time to demonstrate.
So let’s get started!!!!
