As the National Football League continues to tolerate players who sit during the national anthem — allying themselves with defenders of cop-killers — a new low was reached Sunday in a game played in Mexico.
The New England Patriots played the Oakland Raiders at Estadio Azteca stadium in Mexico City, and Donald Trump-hating Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat for the American national anthem.
But if it wasn’t bad enough for Lynch to disrespect his own nation in Mexico, he didn’t stop there.
When the opening chords of the MEXICAN anthem started to play, Lynch STOOD up and stayed in place while the other Raiders milled about.

Reaction was swift in ridicule of the very ignorant Lynch’s low-life move:
Let him stay there then and see how much better Mexico is. People are so naive nowadays.

So we can leave him on the other side of the wall?

He may want to investigate race issues in Mexico.

Everyone knows that there is no police brutality or racial inequality in Mexico.

Lynch came out of retirement this year, and the NFL is likely wishing he hadn’t.
But the Patriots had the last word, as Lynch and the Raiders had one of their worst game of the season, getting crushed by New England 33-8. Lynch was never a factor and scored no touchdowns in the humiliating loss.
Is this new low finally going to force the NFL to stop the bleeding, and crack down on America-hating players?
