    NBA player explains why he didn’t kneel for US anthem

    Brave christian NBA player explains why he didn’t kneel for US anthem: ‘we can get past skin color’

    August 1, 2020
    Vivek Saxena

    During an NBA game Friday between the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets, black Christian minister Jonathan Isaac, a “forward” with the Orlando Magic, became the first player this season to not hypocritically take a knee during the playing of the national anthem.

    Look, and take note of his t-shirt:


    Unlike his fellow players, he wore his jersey — a standard one versus a virtue-signaling one — and not a “Black Lives Matter” t-shirt.

    Following the game a couple of hours later, a so-called “journalist,” Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Reporter, chose to harangue Isaac over his decision.

    “You didn’t kneel during the anthem, but you also didn’t wear a Black Lives Matter shirt. Do you believe black lives matter?” Rooks asked him.

    She seemed to believe the only way to care about black lives is to participate in virtue-signaling stunts. Isaac replied by stating that he disagreed.

    Listen to his response below:

    “Absolutely. I believe that black lives matter,” Isaac replied. “A lot went into my decision … kneeling or wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt don’t go hand-in-hand with supporting black lives … I do believe that black lives matter, but I just felt like it was a decision that I had to make, and I didn’t feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand-in-hand with supporting black lives.”

    He was right. The official Black Lives Matter movement that the BLM t-shirts worn by his peers paid tribute to is pro-abortion, and that’s problematic.

    He continued by talking more about his faith.

    “My life has been supported through the gospel, Jesus Christ, everyone is made in the image of God and that we all fall short of God’s glory, and that each and every one of us each and every day do things that we shouldn’t do, we say things that we shouldn’t say, we hate and dislike people that we shouldn’t hate and dislike, and sometimes it gets to a point where we point fingers about whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to simply whose evil is most visible,” he said.

    “I felt like I wanted to just take a stand on [it]. [I feel like] we all make mistakes, but I think that the gospel of Jesus Christ is that there’s grace for us, and that Jesus came and died for our sins, and that we all will come to an understanding of that, and understand that God wants to have a relationship with us, that we can get past skin color, we can get past all the things in our world that are messed up, jacked up.”

    He had a valid point again, given as the BLM movement acts as if only blacks are sometimes unjustifiably killed by police. The fact is whites are as well:

    You are right. He didn't knee down before his Marxist slave masters like the rest of the dedicated slaves did to the Marxist slave masters.

    It looks like this is not just the team members but coaches, management, ect.....

    BLM as an NBA institution!


    This is the brave lone individual we should be proud of, who took the risk, but that won't happen!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    The NBA has become a Marxist organization fully funded and support by Communist China.
