There’s a reason the majority of Americans don’t appreciate entitled liberals – they don’t appreciate what they have, and they disdain everyone below them.
Sometimes it’s obvious. Like, perhaps, every time Bill Maher opens his mouth. But sometimes it’s subtle – like, of course, Colin Kaepernick, and his refusal to stand for America’s national anthem before football games.
Never mind, of course, that the country that anthem represents is the reason he can play football in the first place. And never mind the thousands of men and women who have died defending that flag. Privilege doesn’t see those things.
Luckily, the surprise NFL star Dak Prescott does. And he’s still standing for the anthem, and respecting his country. And, as he himself says, refusing to take freedom for granted.
The Daily Caller reports:
It’s been over a year since Colin Kaepernick started his national anthem protest, but he’s now unemployed and there are plenty of NFL quarterbacks still standing.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott 'not at all' tempted to protest national anthem: Can't take freedom for granted https://t.co/C1hbjWBmmM

Nearly every notable player in the NFL has been asked about their stance on Kaepernick’s protest and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the latest to make his position clear.
“I mean, it’s bigger than I think some of us think. It’s just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I’ve been given and my freedom for granted.”
If you don’t know anything about football, let me reassure you of one thing: Prescott isn’t just doing this for a publicity stunt – or to salvage a lackluster career. Far from it.
Fact is, Prescott’s career has only just begun. And he’s already put himself on the NFL map with a stellar, and completely unexpected, season as the Cowboys’ QB. After all, he only rose to the position after the Cowboys’ starter QB was injured.
Simply put, there’s no reason for Prescott to take a public stance like this. Unless, of course, he really believes it.
He does. And he’s not the only one. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones feels the same way.
“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have. I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment…I like the way the Cowboys do it.”
So do we.
