In today’s edition of ‘WTF NEWS’, Seattle Seahawks lineman Michael Bennett believes that NFL players are being treated like 19th century slaves.

Yes, really.
While being interviewed by reporters, Bennett made the comparison of NFL players to Dred Scott, who was the center of the infamous 1857 ruling that classified enslaved African-Americans as “property”.

This is coming from someone who is currently in the middle of a $28 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT.
Here’s more from Breitbart.com:
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’s decision to sit players who do not stand for the national anthem to the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision.
“It reminded me of the Dred Scott case: You’re property, so you don’t have the ability to be a person first,” Bennett told reporters Wednesday. “I think that in this generation, I think that sends the wrong message to young kids and young people all across the world that your employer doesn’t see you as a human being, they see you as a piece of property, and if that’s the case, then I don’t get it. I just don’t get why you don’t see us as human beings first.”
Dred Scott v. Sandford invalidated the standing of any African American whose ancestors toiled as slaves in America to sue in federal court and maintained that the federal government possessed no power to regulate the spread of slavery in territories acquired after the ratification of the Constitution. Jones announced, “If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play—period.”
“I think the issue with Kaepernick is the start to a conversation,” Bennett maintained. “If they want us to be open to what they want, the dialogue, then that’s something that needs to be on the table right there.”

How much more outrageous can they get? It seem like as time goes on, the more ridiculous and sensational they get.
Even though this is all insane, this kind of hyperbole will only help Trump in the future. The more radical the left gets, the less likely reasonable people will be to vote for them.
So I guess we just need to keep rooting for them to go more and more insane and Trump will win 2020 in a LANDSLIDE!

  1. You mean because you’re supposed to be respectful of you employer, your fans, and your country. You are a very overly compensated employee that signed a contract. If you feel so strongly about your treatment, get a real job. You have been treated like royalty all your football life and you have no idea what real workforce jobs are like. If you pulled your antics in any other line of work, you’d be in the unemployment line the next day. You pity party is over nitwit. Ship up or ship out. It’s your choice.
