The Pittsburgh Steelers refused to go on the field during the playing of our National Anthem, except for this lone patriot, Alejandro Villanueva, who refused to disrespect our country and played for the Army football team before going to the Steelers.

Villanueva is an Army veteran and a Bronze Star recipient.

While the rest of his teammates cowered in the locker room like a bunch of ungrateful thugs, Villanueva stood in the tunnel holding his helmet in his left hand and holding his right hand over his heart as the anthem played.

Hell yeah!

Villanueva, who served three tours in Afghanistan as an Army ranger played in college at West Point Military Academy before going on to become an Army Ranger.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said ahead of the game the team would not be participating in the anthem, The Hill reported.

“Not to be disrespectful to the anthem, to remove ourselves from the circumstance. People shouldn’t have to choose. If a guy wants to go about his normal business and participate in the anthem, he shouldn’t be forced to choose sides,” Tomlin told CBS before the game.

“If a guy feels the need to do something, he shouldn’t be separated from his teammate who chooses not to. So we’re not participating today. That’s our decision. We’re gonna be 100 percent.”

“Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin reveals to that the team will not be participating in today’s national anthem.”

The decision came after President Trump last week attacked NFL players who refuse to stand during the national anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!” You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, “That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.” And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country,” Trump said.

“When the NFL ratings are down massively, massively. The NFL ratings are down massively. Now the number one reason happens to be they like watching what’s happening… with yours truly. They like what’s happening. Because you know today if you hit too hard—15 yards! Throw him out of the game! They had that last week. I watched for a couple of minutes. Two guys, just really beautiful tackle. Boom, 15 yards! The referee gets on television, his wife is sitting at home, she’s so proud of him. They’re ruining the game! They’re ruining the game. That’s what they want to do. They want to hit! It is hurting the game.”

“But you know what’s hurting the game more than that? When people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they are playing our great national anthem. The only thing you could do better is if you see it, even if it’s one player, leave the stadium, I guarantee things will stop. Things will stop. Just pick up and leave. Pick up and leave. Not the same game anymore, anyway.”

Trump doubled down on Twitter today: 

“Courageous Patriots have fought and died for our great American Flag — we MUST honor and respect it! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Watch the video!

“Alejandro Villanueva was the only Steeler to come out for the National Anthem, standing in the tunnel.”

So not only is he a patriot, but he’s a national hero.

To show the NFL who America stands with, let’s make him go viral for loving and respecting our nation, shall we?
