I have never been a fan of Keith Olbermann. There is nothing redeemable in his statements and actions that can up his rating in my opinion. He has sunk to a new low in another un-American tirade and suggestion. Now he has suggested a new way to support Colin Kaepernick in disrespecting the Flag and the National Anthem. It is also his way to resist President Trump.
President Trump attacked professional athletes who are refusing to stand for the National Anthem. The President thinks that they are a disgrace and that they should be fired. Heck, one news outlet accused the President of calling them SOBs. The President may or may not have thought that, but he certainly did not say that.
Anyway, Mr. Olbermann wants the fans to stay seated in their seats during the Anthem. That was, according to him, they can protect their freedom of speech and show support for the anti-American movement sweeping through professional sports. Someone should remind him and pro sports that the fans can also vote with their feet and their wallets. That will be a painful lesson. But when you live in a liberal bubble, you have to learn things the hard way.
As Written By Peter Hasson for the Daily Caller:

“This is simple: To defend OUR right to protest we as fans/consumers ALSO must not stand during the National Anthem until Trump’s threat ends,” the former MSNBC host wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
