Over the past few weeks, hundreds of NFL players have taken a knee during the national anthem to protest against Donald Trump and racial inequality. Now, one Texas football player has finally had enough.
Freedom Daily reported that NFL player Justin James “JJ” Watt put the race-baiting players to shame on Sunday with the incredible thing he brought onto the football field. Instead of kneeling, Watt has spent the last few weeks working tirelessly to organize hurricane relief effort. Watt, who is defensive end for the Houston Texans, raised a staggering $30 million in the last ten days alone, which puts every NFL kneeler to shame.
Instead of kneeling, Watt ran onto the football field for his first game since Hurricane Harvey with a gigantic flag, symbolizing the incredible spirit of Americans uniting after the catastrophe.

The stadium erupted in cheers for Watt, rightfully stealing the spotlight from the anti-American clowns whose disgusting antics continue to make headlines at every single NFL game as of late. Watt wrote on Twitter that the physical donations pouring in so fast, that the money that was raised hasn’t even been tapped into yet. He posted photos of supplies overflowing from storage spaces and trucks where these supplies were donated in a massive distribution event over the weekend to the suffering Houston community.

When asked what he’s going to do with the millions of dollars he has raised, Watt said, “I’m going to take my time, make sure that I work with local organizations that we do it right here in the city so that money goes straight to the people here of Houston who need it the most so that we can help rebuild them.”
At a time when most millionaire NFL players are using there fame to disrespect our country, it’s refreshing to see one player using his position to do something good. God bless you, JJ Watt!
This comes as conservative group Main Street Patriots is organizing a boycott of the NFL on Veteran’s Day weekend in response to the kneeling protests. The boycott is being put together to send a message about the importance of standing and saluting during the playing of the national anthem at NFL football games.
“I have watched professional football since the time there were two separate leagues – AFL and NFL in the late 60’s,” Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the group, told reporters. “Sports has always been an arena where we are united in support of our favorite teams.”
“We are not Democrats or Republicans, we are simply fans,” Dooley said. She went on to say that the NFL players are “seeking to change that by attempting to shove their political views down the throats of fans.”
“I urge patriotic Americans to exercise their First Amendment rights and boycott the NFL and their sponsors,” Dooley concluded.
