Well, well, well. Imagine this: Not one MLB player was singing the national anthem.

My husband has the game on and during the anthem, they panned all the players and not one was singing.

Why do I think there won't be any outrage?

Thatís all the MAGATs care about.

2. Why would they? Many of them aren't U.S. citizens.

Many athletes don't, anyway.

3. They shouldn't.

But Megan Rapinoe stands for the anthem (used to kneel, but she's prohibited from doing so) but she doesn't put her hand over her heart or sing. Of course, neither thing is "necessary" (and in my day, we put our hand over our hearts for the pledge, not the anthem). She got heat not only for kneeling way back when, but for not putting her hand over her heart and not singing.

I'm just pointing out a double-standard. I read plenty of wingers whining about her, and it wasn't just about kneeling.

6. I don't see a double standard between being mad at a citizen protesting the anthem and not

being mad at a noncitizen standing respectfully during the anthem.

7. I don't follow baseball.

I wasn't aware that all the players are not from the United States. I assumed some were American citizens.

10. I don't think anyone should have to sing. And of course I know there's a mix of U.S.

citizens and players from other countries in MLB.

Evidently, some right wingers lose their shit when some female soccer players/athletes don't sing. Which was the point of my original post.

14. Half "the right doesn't care about its own hypocrisy and trying to catch them at it isn't useful,"

half "just being a dick."

13. For the same reason there's no outrage when the people slugging back beers in the stadium club loung

don't bother stopping long enough to listen to the National Anthem much less stand up for it.

Pure hypocrisy and racial demagoguery.
