On Sunday night, the worst mass shooting in American history was committed on the Las Vegas strip.

All across the country, tributes and prayers poured in for the 59 who were killed and nearly 550 other who were injured. As images and video of the horrific massacre made their way onto social media, we saw the bravery and valor of our first responders, who laid their lives on the line to save the lives of the innocent.

Their efforts were widely praised by the majority of the nation as we all realize that without them, the death toll would have been much, much higher. In fact, the SWAT team that breached the room the shooter was holed up in acted swiftly and without regard for their own safety – they rushed into a room with a madman not knowing what awaited them on the other side of the door – stopping the shooting shortly after it started, undoubtedly saving countless lives.

Just like after 9/11, the majority of our nation is coming together to honor the fallen and pay homage to the selfless heroes who ran toward danger to save their fellow Americans. While most of us are grateful we live in a nation with such amazing people, the actions of law enforcement on Sunday, who didn’t save or protect people based on their race, still weren’t enough to convince certain NFL players they were worthy of being honored.

On Monday night, the NFL held a moment of silence on the field for the victims and heroes prior to the playing of our National Anthem; however, the unity was short-lived. No sooner than the ceremony ended, did Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters and linebacker Ukeme Eligwe take a seat on the bench, refusing to stand for the playing of the Anthem despite the heinous attacks our nation had just suffered hours prior.

The Daily Caller has more:

The Redskins stood and linked arms for the anthem as did several players on the Chiefs sideline. However, Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters and linebacker Ukeme Eligwe sat during the playing of the national anthem. As ESPN’s Sean McDdonough noted, Peters has been sitting for the anthem for weeks.

It’s incredibly sad that even during a time when we should all be coming together as Americans to show support for our country, its great people, and the many, many heroes we have living among us, these two instead decided to continue with their divisive protests. But then again, that’s why the NFL has been hemorrhaging fans at a blinding rate – people are sick of divisive politics infecting their beloved sport.

In fact, Breitbart News reported that Sunday’s ratings dipped down yet again amid the growing angst fans have for the league allowing anti-American protests to take place on the field.

Another Sunday delivers more bad ratings news for a National Football League already imploding under the weight of its own strident and proven anti-Americanism. Last week, Sunday Night Football hit a new season low, and compared to last year, sunk a full 10 percent.  This week, viewership for Sunday Night Footballcollapsed even further, down another five percent. Compared to this same week last year, viewership fell two percent.

Via Deadline:

With a 11.0/19 in metered market results, last night’s SNF was down 5% from last week when the Washington Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 27-10. As the league took another week-by-week ratings hit just a month into the 2017-2018 season, year-to-year, Sunday’s game was also down a bit from last year. Compared to the then season low of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 43-14 smackdown of the Kansas City Chiefs in primetime on October 2, 2016, last night’s SNF dipped 2% in the early numbers.

How unfortunate. But what’s more unfortunate is the two players who still chose to spit in the faces of our nation’s veterans and first responders, both of whom make it even possible for the two idiots protesting to make millions chasing a ball around a field.

As long as the NFL continues to allow such protests, especially during a time of crisis, they can expect Americans to tune out.
