An Iowa high school baseball team started its season on Monday by kneeling during the national anthem in support of Black Lives Matter and racial injustice, according to multiple reports.
All of the Roosevelt Roughriders players linked arms and were seen kneeling as "The Star-Spangled Banner" echoed through Principal Park in Des Moines ahead of the team's first game against Ankeny Centennial.
[We have a] lot of diversity, and a lot of people of color," a Roosevelt senior outfielder told Des Moines WHO 13. Were just trying to show our appreciation, and its about social justice."

Kneeling will be compulsory from now on. Anyone not kneeling during the National Anthem will be shunned or assaulted by the race bullies.
Subjects kneel and Free People Stand
When you kneel before something, doesn’t it mean you are submissive to it?
Poor coaching. Kneeling should equal benching. Entire team kneels, game forfeited. Keep it simple.
Turn your backs to them. They get no respect from me.
sports will become unwatchable with all the virtue signals..
None of these kids would ever fight for the country. In fact, while all this is going on, the Chinese are making their moves and no one cares. If China walked into the US today with an army that vastly overwhelms the USA in sheer numbers alone, the majority of those protesting and their supporters would look up from their phones, shrug and go back to texting.
Bank on it.
“But, mom, all the popular kids are doing it.”
The beginning of the end for sports.
Oh yeah, can’t wait for the suspensions for failing to kneel start. FFIW, least it appears to be a team decision which has gotta tick off BLM organizers who want division to power their movement.
We need to start kneeling every time we leave the house while begging forgiveness from blacks and taking selfies to post on social media because it’s JUST the right thing to do.
Let’s take the example of blacks who beg forgiveness every time they beat, rob, rape or kill a white person.
Or muzzies who flood the streets protesting terrorism every time there is an incident.
Boy all of this makes me sick.
GOD BLESS the paesani protecting the Columbus statue in South Philly and the folks guarding THE Alamo
There must be other folks out there protecting some piece of history but these are the only two I know of.

Watch Tucker’s opening comments from last night...it will all become clear as to what you’re submitting to... https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-black-lives-matter-dangerous-moment
Tells you volumes on where they want our mindset.
Just another nudge that is really a shove.
ALL of these kids have phones, Snapchat, Insta, etc, and will obey what the Device tells them they must do. What their parents say, what our founding documents say, what simple logic says makes no difference whatsoever.
And so it begins...
My sense is that no sport, at any level, will be immune to the kneeling.
And no one person will have the stomach to stand while their teammates are groveling on the floor to BLM while our National Anthem is being played.
Sad. I’ll never bow to the bastards.
Yep. Kneelers are bowing to the flag .... its the next level beyond merely putting your hand over your heart.
Spread the word
It’s past time to drop out of all this stuff.
Hopefully they lost.
