Former NFL player Burgess Owens compared current NFL players — who peacefully kneel during the national anthem — to the 9/11 terrorist attack that killed over 3,000 people.
Owens made bizarre comparison on the Fox Business show “Varney & Co” on Sept. 10, notes Media Matters:
We now just have Nike, for instance, just joining the fray. And, as we see a little bit less, probably, of the kneeling, we’re going to still see the narrative by Nike, and that is a Marxist who’s going to be the face in commercials in NFL games from this point moving on.
We have to look at the bigger picture and understand in America that we’re under assault. It’s like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, we’re being assaulted by the left.
And we need to understand who they are. They’re globalists, and they’re leftist globalists. The worst thing that can happen to our country is to let them get away with it and not understand what their long game is. It’s not American, it’s not about patriotism. It’s profit and politics for them.
