An unidentified white football fan called into C-Span to express her sadness over the NFL players who peacefully protested police brutality against blacks by kneeling during the National Anthem.
In between her precious tears, the weeping caller falsely claimed the peaceful protest was against U.S. veterans and those who have died for the country:
I’m a big huge football fan but I can’t watch it anymore because it brings tears to my eyes. It’s too painful so I can’t do that. The is a symbol of imperfect people in an imperfect country always trying to do the right thing.
It’s just shameful and it hurts me to see people taking a knee when we are supposed to be joyful about living in this country. After I saw what happened [with players kneeling during the anthem], I tried to watch it and I just couldn’t because I just kept crying.
I just don’t understand why people do these things… I miss my Monday nights. I’m an addict. I have two televisions on watching two different timezones. I’m crazy about football but I just can’t take the pain. It hurts… too much.
