Video of the Day: WNBA Players Walk Away During National Anthem

On Saturday, players with the WNBA teams Seattle Storm and New York Liberty walked off the court as the national anthem was played to show their hatred for America and their solidarity with various left-wing social justice causes.

Breitbart said “there was a 26-second moment of silence in honor of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville police” and each player wore Taylor’s name on their jerseys.

“We are dedicating this season to Breonna Taylor, an outstanding EMT who was murdered over 130 days ago in her home,” said Liberty player Layshia Clarendon. “Breonna Taylor was dedicated and committed to uplifting everyone around here. We are also dedicating this season to ‘Say Her Name’ campaign, a campaign committed to saying the names and fighting for justice of black women – black women are so often forgotten in this fight for justice, who don’t have people marching in the streets for them. We will say her name. Sandra Bland. Atatiana Jefferson. Dominique Remy Fells. Breonna Taylor. We will be a voice for the voiceless.”

Reaction was pretty much what you’d expect.  Leftists supported the move while patriots weren’t impressed.  One person summed it up quite nicely:

Bingo.

Personally, I’ve never heard of either of these teams, but rest assured, I’ll never watch them, nor will I ever watch any WNBA game if this is the kind of nonsense they tolerate and encourage.  The same goes for the NBA, the NFL, MLB, NASCAR or any other professional sport that embraces the Marxist Black Lives Matter.
