I always knew I liked Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour more than Roger Waters, and here’s just another reason why.
Waters took to Facebook on Wednesday to “call upon” Super Bowl LIII halftime performers to “take a knee” “in solidarity” with unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“My colleagues Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi are performing during the halftime show at the Super-bowl this coming Sunday, I call upon them to “take a knee” on stage in full sight,” Waters wrote. “I call upon them to do it in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, to do it for every child shot to death on these mean streets, to do it for every bereaved mother and father and brother and sister.”
Another far-lefty appealing to emotion rather than fact. It really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone that the musician would write a demand like this considering Waters is from the wrong side of a divided U.K. Waters also is trying to tell Americans how to be American, and he isn’t even a citizen of the U.S.
Here’s Waters’ video that accompanied the post:
Waters has a lot of nerve talking about the “mean streets” in the U.S., especially since a lot of the police force in England would rather arrest people who could be deemed as being “offensive” online than go after Muslim grooming gangs that target and assault Englanders for fear of being called racists - even though Islam isn't a race, it's a religion.
The NFL has seen an uptick in their TV ratings since making the decision not to air the national anthem before the beginning of games this season. If any of the Super Bowl halftime artists do take a knee, don’t be surprised when the ratings come out and you see a significant drop from the first half to the second half.
Kaepernick began his anti-police crusade in 2016. After the 2016 season, Kaepernick has not seen the field one time as he hasn’t been able to procure a contract with any NFL team. Despite his departure from football, Kaepernick has still found success in the form of a book deal and being tabbed as the spokesman for a recent Nike ad campaign.
