Drew Brees Forced to Apologize After Saying We Should Respect the American Flag
On Wednesday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees stated that no one should be disrespecting our flag, but in even less than a day was “forced” to apologize for his horribly evil views in the eyes of the American left.
As reported by the Daily Wire:
“A lot of people expect that we will see players kneeling again if and when the NFL season starts,” Yahoo Finance Editor-at-Large Daniel Roberts told Brees during the interview. “I’m curious how you think the NFL will and should respond to that. And of course, you’re such a leader in the league – what is your responsibility as a leader in times like this for the rest of your teammates and players in the league?”
“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America, or our country,” Brees responded. “Let me just tell you what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States. I envision my two grandfathers who fought for this country during WWII – one in the Army and one in the Marine Corps – both risking their lives to protect our country, and to try to make our country and this world a better place.”
But Brees, who has had an incredible quarterback career and can clearly outdo other teams’ defensive lines, apparently can’t take the pressure from Leftist keyboard warriors.
The Daily Wire continues that, “Brees was quickly pummeled by activists, professional athletes, and members of the media for his mainstream opinion, shared by millions of Americans,” and that even though Brees constantly gives back to his community and donated $5 million to coronavirus-related efforts in March to Louisiana (the state with the second-highest black population), the QB was still considered “racist” for respecting the flag, ostensibly.
So, of course, Brees folded, posting a public apology on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
And with that, the left’s daily struggle session was complete.
I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday. In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know… https://t.co/Jg36d0Ad0l

I’d love to see how anyone who demanded an apology for this can claim that the Left doesn’t hate this country.
