The National Anthem protests are really bringing out the stupidity of some people on the left. Take for instance, the actor Jesse Williams, who told MSNBC that the National Anthem is some kind of scam intended to encourage wars.

Actor to MSNBC: National Anthem is a Scam ‘To Get Boys and Girls to Go Kill People’
On Sunday, MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts, actor Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) expressed his opinion on Trump, the national anthem, and the NFL. He believed that the NFL was owned by Trump supporters who were “close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator.” Williams also said that “We’re North Korea,” and finally, that the national anthem has nothing to do with the NFL, but “is a scam.” He told Roberts (who agreed) that the anthem was meant “to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people.”
“They don’t know right from wrong because we know seven or eight of these owners gave Trump a million dollars each, and are close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator, who treats America like it’s a game show. We’re North Korea and we need to stand at a pledge of allegiance as war machines fly overhead for military recruiting videos. I think, Thomas, it’s also important to realize that this anthem thing is a scam. This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 from the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment, to get more people to go off and fight wars to die. This has nothing to do with NFL or the American pastime or tradition. This is to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people. They’re marketing and pumping millions and millions of dollars into the NFL to get us to put on a pageant in front of the NFL football games to get you to go off and fight.”
