Taking a Knee at the Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery

 In Domestic, Military

Is it race? Is it hating America? When people “take a knee” to disrespect our military, anger mounts exponentially. But when one black fool allegedly took a knee at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, the fury was instant.

Squawker noted,

“These people taking a knee in front of this moment [monument] aren’t making an issue about race. How can they be when they dishonor the memory of thousands of Black American soldiers who gave their lives fighting for the Country that they, unlike these young men believed in?

If this trend of tasteless protest continues however, these kids might need to start being careful. As it is important to remember the Sentinels on guard duty at the Tomb are not purely ceremonial. In fact serving as a Tomb Sentinel is one of the highest honors of in the U.S. military. It’s a duty so rare that the Tomb of the Unknown Solider Guard Identification Badge is the second least awarded qualification Badge in the U.S. armed services, only trailing being the Astronaut Badge in rareness. These servicemen take their duty seriously, and are encouraged to confront anyone who dares cross the barriers protecting the Tomb, or even anyone they perceive to be excessively loud or disrespectful.” 

The incident occurred during the playing of Taps on September 28. It was an excruciatingly disrespectful moment that slapped every American Veteran,  every fallen American military service member and their families.

There were so many posts with this same photo that verifying it was impossible. Some people said it was fake. Others were simply infuriated. Whether the photo is real or not is irrelevant- it’s a picture of the current epidemic of anti-American sentiment flooding our airways.

    If standing IS showing respect for our flag, then what is knelling? If you answer it is the opposite of standing, then you understand why it is imperative to stand and not to knell!

    After Japan surrendered, NFL Commissioner Elmer Layden called for all of the league’s teams to play “The Star-Spangled Banner” at their games, arguing, “The National Anthem should be as much a part of every game as the kick-off. We must not drop it simply because the war is over. We should never forget what it stands for.”

    So whoever says it’s not about dispecting our troops, is dumber than dirt!!

    Apparently brain damage in the NFL has become a highly contagious disease!!!
