It’s official. Aaron Rodgers is a leftwing social justice warrior.
While trying to claim that the protests by the Green Bay Packers has nothing to do with disrespecting the military, the flag, or the country (which it most certainly does), Aaron Rodgers was quoted using a very familiar left-wing bumper sticker/hashtag (Love Over Hate).
Per the Packers.com:
The gesture is an extension of what Rodgers and several teammates did this past Sunday on the sideline, which he explained after the game was about “love over hate and unity over division.”
Rodgers also launched into some gibberish about the protests, which take place DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, getting “misconstrued” as a protest OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. The Berkeley alum also criticized those who are fighting back, and standing up for the flag. It’s apparently “hate” to defend the flag.
He also felt, however, that the message behind the players’ actions has been misconstrued in some circles, based on the “hatred” he’s seen on his and others’ social media accounts.
Finally, Rodgers dropped several SJW meaningless words, and called for a “conversation” to be started that might make people “uncomfortable.” (just a shot in the dark here. But I’m guessing those that need to be made “uncomfortable” doesn’t include any of the millionaire Packers kneeling for the anthem. Again, just a guess.)
“This is about equality. This is about unity, and love, and growing together as a society, and starting a conversation around something that might be a little uncomfortable for people. But we have to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity.
“This week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well, come together and show people we can be connected, and we can grow together.”
