Bruce Maxwell, only MLB player to kneel during anthem, allegedly points gun at woman

Amid the controversy of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem, I’ve been watching to see if any MLB players would follow suit. 

Fortunately the trend didn’t catch on among the diverse mix of players that make up MLB rosters with one exception. 

On September 23rd, Oakland A's catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first, and so far, only player to take a knee during the national anthem and he did it for the remainder of the season.

While he received support from his fanbase in the liberal Bay Area, he was booed fiercely by Texas Rangers fans when he proceeded to kneel at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Normally, this wouldn't be relevant news over a month later with the Oakland A's long since completing their last place season but Maxwell's offseason has been full of drama.

Watch as I run you through his bizarre week including what he claimed happened to him in a restaurant with a pro-Trump server and an additional incident that resulted in him being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and disorderly conduct.

The claim sounds similar to many other stories, where someone was supposedly discriminated against in the Trump era, that turned out to be hoaxes.

Perhaps Maxwell hoped to gain some publicity from his failed attempt to bring kneeling to prominence in Major League Baseball.

Instead, it looks like the only MLB player to take the knee and who may think himself a champion, doesn't seem so noble.

His anti-cop statements are similar to those made by Seattle Seahawks player Michael Bennett in August which makes me wonder if these athletes are truly trying to protest injustice and racial discrimination by the police or are simply anti-police.

Bruce Maxwell doesn’t seem to get it: you can be a major league baseball player, but that doesn’t mean you know anything other than how to hit a ball and catch a ball.

Sometimes its better to keep a low profile than risk everyone finding out that you are an idiot.

Perhaps the taking a knee is his way of insuring that he won’t be traded – no other team would have him.

Thanks Christopher. I’m sure this is all over the MSM, right?

So let me see if I got this right… He was taking a knee in protest for cops shooting black guys but yet as a black man he pulls a gun on a pizza delivery girl… If he would have pulled that gun on a cop or if cop had been present he would’ve been on a slab in the morgue and a yesterday’s newspaper article..

But… Watch the kneelers after that.!!

Ron Joseph, yes, the leftist regressives are besieged by mental issues. I think the longer you are in a cult, the worse the symptoms are.
