Commentator and comedian Trae Crowder, who goes by Liberal Redneck, had a few things to say about Donald Trump’s jihad on protesting NFL players, saying it all comes down to one basic truth about the president – it presented him with an opportunity to be racist.
In a video posted to YouTube, Crowder began by pointing out that Trump — appearing before a predominately all-white audience in Alabama — knew what he was doing and played to their bigotry.
Black NFL players protesting racial inequality allowed Trump to do “what’s really important to his base, what truly matters … the spontaneous opportunity to be explicitly racist in public.”
“Trump took a totally left-field shot-across-the-bow that athletes who protest by kneeling during the National Anthem, and it worked like a charm, buddy,” Crowder explained.
Touching on Trump supporters’ claims that the athletes are “disrespecting the flag,” Crowder provided a counter-example of what would get a pass at sporting events — wearing a t-shirt featuring a star-spangled eagle.
“I could cut the sleeves off this bad boy, wear it to a NASCAR event, stop in the parking lot and get me a copy of the battle flag of a failed state that waged a treasonous war against America, go inside and fly that son of a bitch all day long. Pounding beers until I was so drunk that I pissed through — and all over — these sons of bitches,” he explained while holding a pair of shorts molded after the American flag, “and all any of you would say is, ‘Goddamn son, you’ll be fine.”
With that Crowder moved on to take a knee in solidarity with the athletes, and in protest against racial inequality in America.
