Evangelist Franklin Graham Praises Dallas Cowboys Owner For Censoring Players’ Free Speech
Evangelist Franklin Graham praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for censoring the exercise of free speech by Cowboys players.
Jones recently announced that Cowboys players are not allowed to peacefully kneel during the National Anthem to protest police brutality of black people.
Graham, who is white, claimed on Facebook that Vice President Mike Pence’s fake walkout from an Indianapolis Colts game caused Jones to have a change of mind:
Well it took long enough, but Jerry Jones finally got it. He told the Dallas Cowboys players yesterday that if they didn’t stand for the anthem and the flag, they could sit for the game. Way to go Jerry! I hope all of the NFL owners will do the same. I guess Vice President Mike Pence walking out of the Colts/49ers game sent a strong message.
