Ted Cruz to former NBA Star: Boycott ‘Rich Spoiled Athletes Who Dishonor Our Flag’

Last week, Senator Ted Cruz made his feelings known in regards to Colin Kaepernick and his ilk who are disrespecting the American flag by refusing to stand during the playing of the National Anthem during NFL games. Cruz didn’t mince words.

On Monday, following the NFL’s first regular season Sunday games of the year, a handful of other players joined Kaepernick, either sitting, kneeling or raising their fist like a racist 1960’s Black Panther while the National Anthem played on the 15-year anniversary of the horrific Islamic terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, and the four-year anniversary of the Benghazi terrorist attacks of 9/11/12.

After former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose saluted the “peaceful protests” against the American flag on Twitter, Ted Cruz  recommended another type of “peaceful protest.”

“Here’s a peaceful protest,” Cruz tweeted back directly to Jalen Rose.”Never buy another shoe, shirt, or jersey of rich spoiled athletes who dishonor our flag,” Cruz urged.

Just prior to that exchange, Ted Cruz gave a directive to Kaepernick and the other America-haters in the NFL, as well as to other professional athletes.

“To all the athletes who have made millions in America’s freedom: Stop Insulting our flag, our nation, our heroes,” Cruz wrote on Twitter, again in response to ESPN’s Rose.

Leave it up to Ted Cruz to go where other politicians don’t have the courage to go.
