(David Menzies guest hosts for Ezra Levant tonight:) The NFL players insist that their circus-sideshow of kneeling during the national anthem has nothing to do with disrespecting America or its veterans, that it’s all about free speech.
If that’s true, then I have a great idea how the players can embrace the First Amendment without making a mockery of the Star Spangled Banner…
The NFL has lots of rules governing player behaviour. For example, if you put a personal message on your uniform, that’s a $6,076 fine — a figure that doubles the second time you do it.
So why don’t the players purchase their own commercials to air during NFL games? The cost of a 30-second spot during the regular season starts at $300,000.
Oh, what am I saying?
This idea of these guys taking a principled stance using their own dime? Nah...
NEXT: One of the newest members of The Rebel team, Kristin Tate, joins me to talk more about the NFL anthem protests. What are they really about and how much longer can they possibly continue?
THEN: Rebel BC Bureau Chief Christopher Wilson comes on to elaborate on another Rebel exclusive:
He's uncovered documents showing that the Prime Minister's Office is concealing expenses from voters.
So much for Trudeau's promised "transparency."
