‘Divisive Nonsense’: Kari Lake Crushes NFL for Playing ‘Black National Anthem’

The NFL is reportedly playing a rendition of the “Black National Anthem” before the opening game of the season.

Arizona Republican Kari Lake suggested it’s racist and “divisive nonsense” to play different national anthem based on race.

Lake said, “I’m against a ‘black National Anthem’ for the same reason I am against a ‘white National Anthem,’ a ‘gay National Anthem,’ a ‘straight National Anthem,’ a ‘Jewish National Anthem,’ a ‘Christian National Anthem,’ and so on.” (Poll: Should Athletes Kneel During National Anthem? VOTE)

“I hear the [NFL] is still trying to force this divisive nonsense down America’s throats,” Lake continued. “I won’t stand for it. Literally.”

“America has only ONE National Anthem and that Anthem is color blind,” she explained. The new anthem is called “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which also played before Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona. Lake refused to stand for the additional anthem focused on race.

“We are ONE NATION, under God, Francis Scott Key’s words ring true for every single American Citizen regardless of their skin color,” she added.

California Republican Larry Elder and Utah Rep. Burgess Owens, a former NFL player, agreed with Lake.

“I agree with Kari Lake. We have one national anthem, and it’s THE national anthem,” Elder said in a statement.

“I am as opposed to playing both anthems as I am to the term ‘African — [American]’ and to Black History Month. These things are divisive. They imply blacks are somehow separate and apart from American history, tradition, and experience. It suggests continued victimization and oppression when antiblack racism in America has never been more insignificant.”

“Blacks fought and died in every American war, including the Revolutionary War, in which a black man was the first casualty. We ARE American history.”

Burgess said the NFL is dividing Americans.

“I will not stand for any other national anthem but our National Anthem, so I’m with Kari Lake,” Burgess said. “I will not be part of dividing our country between Blacks and Whites. I will not do that. I will not be part of it. The NFL has ashamed themselves.”
