Hillary Clinton defends NFL kneelers “that’s not against our anthem or flag”
Hillary Clinton defends NFL kneelers on foreign soil. Clinton said that kneeling is a “reverent” position and not against “our anthem or flag.”
Clinton was at the Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. She was beginning her foreign “What Happened” tour (where she explains to the world that she got her ass kicked in an US election rigged in her favor).
In between defending her husband against backlash from his buddy Harvey Weinstein Clinton people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base. Referring to NFL kneelers.
“That’s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to resist the White House. ”That’s not against our anthem or our flag.” (I thought NFL kneelers was about black injustice?)
“Actually, kneeling is a reverent position,” she continued. “It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system.”
Clinton again on foreign soil in London urged
the Democratic Party to continue to “resist” the president, saying “I think it would be a grave error for Democrats to recede from those fights, so therefore we have to stand up, fight back, resist.”
Clinton went on to compare the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections to the September 11 terrorist attack.
“We have really well-respected security and intelligence veterans saying this was a kind of cyber 9/11 in the sense that it was a direct attack to American institutions,” she said. “That may sound dramatic but we know they tried to recruit into election systems, not just social media propaganda.”
Clinton just will not go away. She defends NFL kneelers on foreign soil. She tells the same crowd that she is encouraging the Democratic party to “resist” the president. I wish the woman would go away but the world needs to know “what happened.” Just listening to her should make it abundantly clear.
