Brandon Tatum is a black cop who tells it like it is. 6 Million people have already watched this video. Brandon cuts through the garbage and explains to the overpaid crybaby players of the NFL why they should respect the flag, the anthem and their country.
“Cry me a river”
“It’s not about the act of protesting, of believing in something and pursuing. It’s the way you’re doing it,” Tatum began. “Listen, what does the American flag have to do with your perceived oppression? What does the national anthem have to do with these issues that people are bringing up? It’s a separate issue. The flag and the anthem have nothing to do with what you are talking about!”
“You’re talking about a flag that represents hard work, dedication, blood sweat and tears, sacrifice, and the thing that makes me most upset is that you have these people who turn around and take a knee and want to attribute all the negativity to the flag and the anthem and don’t want to attribute the positive.”
Tatum, who happens to be African-American, noted that this flag gave them “the opportunity to go from corn fields and picking cotton to the president of the United States of America.”
“I’m sick of the lame excuses,” Tatum said, differentiating the tactics of liberals today with Martin Luther King, who had support “because he did it with respect, integrity.”
Instead, “These clowns are doing stuff out of trendiness. This is trendy,” Tatum said. “You really care about black lives? You don’t need to be taking a knee. You need to be out there doing something in the community,” things like voting, passing legislation, joining the police, and other productive endeavors.
“Do something about it!” Tatum beckons. “Quit taking a knee and protesting and crying like a baby, because all you’re doing is pissing people off. That’s all you’re doing.”
The Tuscon police officer wonders what good has been accomplished since Colin Kaepernick first took a knee last year. “Has unemployment changed in the black community? Has the abortion rate dropped? Has illegitimacy dropped? More entrepreneurs? More jobs?”
“Nothing has changed!” Tatum rightly notes.
“As an African-American man in this country the flag means a lot to me. I honor the flag. I don’t care if I don’t like the president. I don’t care about none of that stuff. I’m going to honor the flag … Presidents come and go.”
Every NFL player who takes to the knee should take a few minutes out to watch this video. Then they should hang their heads in shame and get back to doing what they’re paid for. To play football.
