Aaron Rodgers Takes on Those Opposed to NFL's Anthem Protest

Aaron Rodgers Takes on Those Opposed to NFL's Anthem Protest

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been supporting his teammates who kneel for the National Anthem, and took to Instagram to point out a bit of hypocrisy.

The 33-year-old quarterback posted a photo of him and his teammates locking arms, while a cameraman in a hat films them from below.

“I can’t imagine what kind of social media attacks these cameramen must be enduring after taking a knee during the anthem and wearing a hat. #unity #equalityforall #love #cometogether #invitationtojoin” Aaron posted on Instagram along with the photo you can see in the gallery below.

In addition, Aaron wants fans to join in on the protest as well.

“This is about equality,” he said (via ESPN). “This is about unity and love and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people. “But we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity, and this week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well and come together and show people that we can be connected and we can grow together.”

    What’s amazing to me is how Trump highjacked the entire reason why Kaepernick took to his knee’s in the first place. And it had nothing to do with the flag. It had to do with black people being killed by police when they shouldn’t have been killed and the police not being charged. Anyone that has watched all the video’s knows murder was committed in some of these cases. Just like any other profession: priests, teachers, doctors etc., there are bad cops. We charge and convict them for murder or other crimes but not the police. We constitutionally have the right to peaceful protest and nothing is more peaceful than kneeling. And Kaepernick, who at first sat, kneeled because he was asked to by vets and he agreed with them. Trump is the divider in chief and obviously doesn’t know our constitution and has little respect for it or anyone. Also he and everyone needs to look up the actual rules for the flag. It should never be held horizontally for one which happens all the time yet that’s fine. Just don’t kneel in front of it for Gods sake.

    Couldn’t of said it better, and I hope that all who are kneeling or standing together as a team are doing so for Kapernick’s reason and not just in response to Trump war with the NFL.

    Yet in everyone of these case, the were independently investigated by the Police, the State Police and DA, the DOJ and the FBI yet the Police were cleared. Maybe because the evidence proved ( assuredly in MB case that the whole story was not told) Michael Brown had four independent autopsies. Treyvon Martin three. Still nada. each one came ou wit the same results.

    You do realize that the Police, the State Police and DA, the DOJ and the FBI all have a unspoken allegiance to each other when it comes to these cases, right?

    So Loretta Lynch was in on the cover up? Really? Four separate pathologists were paid off and colluded? Yeah I knew that guy, Obama was a white supremacist.

    Look up the multiple other black deaths that were ignored & that don’t serve your singular argument. My point wasn’t limited to the one case you are talking about. Also, you might want to look into the pitfalls that come with chains of custody. And btw, people don’t necessarily need to be paid off to exercise bias and engage in cover ups.
