The opportunistic NFL, which has dedicated this season to disrespecting the American flag and the National Anthem, tried to drum up patriotic retweets on 9/11 with a crassly shallow tweet and display directly at odds with how they are conducting their business.
A lot of folks on Twitter jumped on their fake display, but one former Marine really let them have it.
You can excuse the curse word, the Marine Corps and Navy get a pass on foul language. But the point is perfectly stated.
As a Marine serving on 9/11 and had his life dramatically altered, I say this – ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? You should be ashamed of this pandering after all you’ve done to destroy the sport with your woke politics and disrespect for the flag and anthem. @NFL @nflcommish https://t.co/y95xUQlYF9

I won’t even try to elaborate on how or why this is so dead on, because what he said can’t be improved. He’s right. They are gross.
Twitchy has a few more good reactions here.
