Predictably, Quarterback Brees in Hot Water Again

Oh look! Another see we told you so. Drew Brees, quarterback of the New Orleans Saints, is finding out. You can never be woke enough. And if you are a former Republican white guy, you will never be treated the same as they do fellow leftists.

I was going to say “conservative” in the sentence above, but I honestly don’t know how conservative Drew Brees is.

But none of that really matters at this point, as Brees is finding out. Brees compromised his values, just once to the left, and he was done. He can never go back to who he once was.

This should be a lesson to all on the right who may ever consider just going along to get along, thinking, in this new ultra-woke environment, that “I’ll just give in to this one thing, this one time.”

There’s no such thing as giving in to the mob just once and thinking they’ll leave you alone.

Saints delete tweet showing Drew Brees in #SayHerName shirt after complaints it was for pro-Trump shooting victim Ashli Babbitt

Brees was blasted in off-season for standing against NFL players kneeling during national anthem, after which he apologized

The New Orleans Saints deleted a tweet showing quarterback Drew Brees wearing a #SayHerName shirt before Sunday’s playoff game against the Chicago Bears — which he and other players have worn all season to draw attention to the Breonna Taylor shooting — over complaints Brees actually wore it for Ashli Babbitt, a supporter of President Donald Trump who was fatally shot by police during last week’s Capitol siege, USA Today’s For the Win reported.

What’s the background?

Brees apparently is having a tough time living down off-season controversy in which he stood against NFL players kneeling during national anthem and said he’ll “never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America.”

Teammate Malcolm Jenkins ripped Brees for his stance, saying in a now-deleted video that “we’re done talking, Drew. And people who share your sentiments, who express those and push them throughout the world, the airwaves, are the problem … it’s unfortunate because I considered you a friend. I looked up to you. You’re somebody who I had a great deal of respect for. But sometimes you should shut the f*** up.”

The next day Brees apologized: “I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday,” he wrote in a lengthy post. “In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused.”
