Look Who Refused To Stand For National Anthem During Super Bowl; You Won’t Find This A Bit Surprising

(Tea Party PAC) – Music superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce have sparked a little Super Bowl controversy by opting not to stand for the National Anthem played before the game over the weekend, a move which will surprise no one, especially if you’ve been keeping up with the National Football League for the last several years.

If you remember correctly, former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the trend of not standing for the anthem, taking a knee instead, as some form of protest against police brutality. Or so he claims anyway.

The bottom line is, doing such a thing is massively disrespectful and anyone participating in such behavior ought to be ashamed of themselves.

Here’s more on this from Western Journal:

Musicians Jay-Z and Beyoncé sparked a bit of controversy Sunday by not standing during the pregame playing of the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

The married couple was caught on camera remaining seated just prior to kickoff between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

Protesting during the national anthem became a trend in 2016, when then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling to protest police brutality and alleged racial injustice in the U.S.

The protest spread around the league, though Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers at the end of the 2016-17 season and has not played in the NFL since.

It was not clear if Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Corey Carter, or Beyoncé, who’s full legal name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, were protesting by remaining seated.

The video of Jay-Z and Beyoncé sitting during the national anthem caused quite a stir on social media:

I don’t give a damn whether Beyonce and Jay Z agree with the current administration. They should stand up for the men and women who are fighting each and every day for their ability to rake in millions from the American people. Absolutely pathetic!

Beyonce and Jay Z hate @realDonaldTrump more than they love this country.

Absolutely disgusting.

RT!#SuperBowl

WATCH: While thousands of proud Americans stood in-allegiance for the National Anthem, Jay-Z and Beyonce sat in silence.

America has no place for unpatriotic scum like these two.

Kick them and Colin Kaepernick right down to Mexico!#fixit

What’s truly disgusting is how celebrities like Jay-Z and Beyonce disrespect the flag like this, they are repudiating the very values that allowed them to rise to the top of the entertainment world and make themselves rich beyond dreams. Yet, that thought never seems to cross their minds.

On top of that, it’s a slap in the face to the men and women who have fought valiantly to defend that flag and the freedom it stands for over the course of our nation’s life. This kind of activism is pathetic to say the least. There are plenty of better ways to make a statement politically about things you think are important.

Doing something like this doesn’t do much to win hearts and minds to a specific cause.
