Houston Texans Defensive End JJ Watt Says “I’ll Take a Knee;” Does Not Think It’s “Disrespecting the Flag or Our Military”


The social justice warrior floodgates have opened.

It's seems as though an athlete announces that he or she will be kneeling during the anthem every single day.

Today, Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt announced that, "Yeah, I'll take a knee."

When asked about protesting, Watts defended the kneeling by saying that he does not think it's "disrespecting the flag or our military."

However, many observers and sports fans are incredibly offended by the kneeling protests.

If it has nothing to do with the anthem or the flag, then why choose those unifying moments to protest in the first place?

Why protest the symbols that represent our entire country?
