Seattle Seahawks Plan Protest at Game on 9-11
On Sunday, September 11, the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly planning a teamwide protest of the National Anthem by sitting when it is played. They say they plan to protest “police brutality.”

@SeaTimesSports then fans should walk out of the stadium.

@SeaTimesSports If the Seahawks sit as a team during the National Anthem, especially on 911, then we are done with them.

On 9-11-2001, dozens of police officers lost their lives along with hundreds of fire fighters. From the Officer Down Memorial page:
The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 caused more law enforcement line of duty of deaths than any other single incident in American history.
One officer was killed when United Flight 93 crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania as he and other passengers attempted to regain control of the plane from the hijackers. 71 officers were killed when the two World Trade Center buildings collapsed in New York City. Dozens more have passed away in the years following 2001 as the direct result of illnesses contracted while working in the hazardous conditions immediately following the attacks in New York.
The BlackLivesMatter narrative is based on a lie – one that is meant to manipulate America. Having that lie displayed 15 years after Muslim extremists killed nearly 3,000 people is disgusting.
Please keep in mind that BlackLivesMatter and Muslims are working together to change the history of our country – Colin Kaepernick is a new convert and his wife/girlfriend is Muslim.
They are just the tip of a very deep problem in our nation: division, hatred, and blindness. And there is an agenda behind it, one which Mr. Kaepernick and the rest of these Black team members are oblivious to.
The National Anthem
The National Anthem is not about race or police- it’s about America’s perseverance in the midst of battle.
Maybe America didn’t survive 9-11. Maybe we are now so totally lost that we have no clue how to exist as part of the human race.
If this protest occurs, it will not only bring shame to the Pacific Northwest, it will cause the Seahawks to lose some fans…active military, veterans, police/fire…and create more division in our Nation.
