Watch: What Every Single Yankees, Nationals Player And Coach Just Did During The National Anthem
(Tea Party 247) Now that baseball has made a tenuous return to the field, its coming with it some eye-rolling moments of virtue signaling on the field.
Virtue signaling by way of a shameful display during our national anthem.
So far, a smattering of team members on the San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds have disgracefully kneeled during the national anthem as they kick off the late-season which is seeing major changes thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
The social media accounts for each team issued Black Lives Matter tweets in response to the players display.
The trend of kneeling during our national anthem began with former 49ers player Colin Kaepernick, who began the practice of protest during games when he was still on the team.
It caught on and now has become so commonplace, that it seems almost perfectly acceptable and normal to kneel in defiance of an anthem that honors the sacrifice of those who have died to protect the civil rights that these activists claim to support.
While some leagues have banned kneeling in the past, in a major nod to the outrage mob, the practice is now more acceptable than ever and praised and endorsed by team management.
Still, what happened on the field ahead of the Yankees and Nationals Opening Day game shocks the conscience.
As Breitbart reported, every single player and coach from each team took the knee.
They note that while it had been expected that several players would take the knee, it certainly wasnt expected for every one of them to do so.
All players and coaches on the Yankees & Nationals took a knee before the national anthem tonight

The players knelt in protest in front of an empty stadium. MLB has closed their stadiums to fans during their abbreviated season due to the coronavirus.
After the death of George Floyd and the ensuing civil unrest that has swept through the country since late May, MLB has become more vocal on social justice issue. The leagues social media accounts have tweeted dozens of Black Lives Matter messages. In addition, MLB has stenciled Black Lives Matter on the pitchers mounds in all ballparks during their opening weekend.
