From proud that someone had the guts to stand up for America amid all this progressive-generated controversy to something quite different …
I cannot believe that Alejandro Villanueva, a West Point graduate and an Army Ranger, would claim that he was embarrassed that he was standing and saluting the American flag under any conditions. I can understand that he found himself in the center of a media sh*tstorm and has apparently brought unwanted attention to his team and embarrassed his coach … but to claim “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself, I feel embarrassed/”
I don’t give a rat’s ass about how he came to be in the position where he was alone, facing the colors, and saluting. His mealy-mouthed apology is disgusting. I hope his fans burn those jerseys they purchased in support of what they believed was an honorable and noble gesture.
