Dallas Cowboys ‘Came Together’ to Be an Example for America

What happened?

The Dallas Cowboys football team knelt as one before the traditional national anthem on Monday night, with the players, owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett all kneeling together. Their conciliatory version of Colin Kaepernick’s protest involved first taking a knee in solidarity with those affected by police violence, then standing and linking arms to pay respect during the national anthem.

President Donald Trump, who fueled tension over the weekend with a series of threatening remarks about players who protest by sitting or kneeling during the anthem, seemed OK with the Dallas Cowboys’ version. He tweeted, ““But while Dallas dropped to its knees as a team, they all stood up for our National Anthem. Big progress being made-we all love our country!”

Glenn’s take:

“They all stood up for what they believed in, they included prayer and they did it respectfully,” Glenn commended the Dallas Cowboys on radio Wednesday.

In a time when America is suffering from a “dearth of leadership,” political activism that ends without violence and lets people with seemingly opposing viewpoints feel equally respected is a win.

GLENN: Well, let's give credit to America's team for showing the rest of the NFL the path forward. Last night, just before Monday Night Football game against the Cardinals, the Dallas Cowboys walked out on the center field, knelt in prayer, and then stood up and respectfully listened to the national anthem.

What the Dallas Cowboys did last night is a microcosm for the entire country and what we should all be doing. As a team, they came together. They all stood up for what they believed in. They included prayer. And they did it respectfully. They took a knee, and they honored the national anthem, and they even threw in a prayer. You can disagree with what they're protesting, but you can't say a word about how they did it because it was not disrespectful in any way.

You know, when we're looking to the Dallas Cowboys for leadership, there is a dearth of leadership in this country. Can you think of any other political activism in this day and age that has ended with nonviolence and both sides feeling respected? Because I can't. It doesn't happen anymore.

Once again, Texas comes riding in to make us feel good, to show us something positive, to show us how we should be behaving.

I am a little surprised that it came from professional sports. However, I shouldn't be. Our professional athletes historically have just transcended be sure professions. It was in 1936, Jesse Owens won four gold medals showing the master race that they weren't all that masterful, you know what I mean? 1980, the US hockey team broke the myth of the Soviets being invincible, and they did it with style and they did it with class.

In 2017, the Cowboys showed us that respecting one another is still possible, and they provided a path forward for the NFL.

And what's more, our children's heroes, if they still look at these guys as heroes, demonstrated how a man behaves.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
