Gladys Knight and the NFL
February 11, 2019
Why should anyone have to defend singing the National Anthem? Why should anyone have to defend being a patriot, for that matter? Unfortunately, that's the position the famous Gladys Knight found herself in because she agreed to sing the Anthem at the Super Bowl.
Thousands of haters denounced her, cursed her and threatened her - first because she agreed to sing the Anthem, and then because she refused to kneel while singing it. Somehow these leftist losers have determined that respect for our nation, our flag, and our Anthem equates to disrespect for the black community. Their only rationale for this is that a player who was already on his way out of the sport decided to kneel during the Anthem to draw attention to himself. (I won't mention his name because he has already received far too much undeserved attention.)
Unfortunately, a lot of good black players decided to join the loser in "solidarity." He had to come up with a reason for his disrespect, so he claimed he was kneeling for "black justice." Never mind that in so doing he showed disrespect for our military men and women, our veterans, our police, and everyone who has served under our flag. (His defenders have claimed that he didn't mean to demean the police, among others. They forget that he wore socks to one game that showed pigs in police uniforms.) Most of those players now regret following this sad person, and have decided to do what they're paid for - play football. And for that, football fans everywhere are grateful.
Perhaps some of the many who had stopped watching NFL games because of this circus will return.
He has written thousands of articles that have been republished in national newspapers and on hundreds of websites, and is a frequent guest on radio and television shows. His weekly Conservative Truth article (which is read by 250,000) offers a unique viewpoint on social, moral and political issues from a Biblical worldview. This has resulted in invitations to speak internationally at churches, conferences, Money Shows, universities, and on TV (including the 700 Club).
“Dr. Tom,” as his readers and followers affectionately refer to him, has a passion for teaching, as you can see from his ministry website (www.ChristianFinancialConcepts.com); his patriotic site (www.ConservativeTruth.org); and his business site (www.GoldenArtTreasures.com). Tom's friend Dr. Lance Wallnau wrote of him, "Tom Barrett is a Renaissance man with a passion for subject matter ranging from finance to theology and American history."
