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.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety."

They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
