Tuscon police officer Brandon Tatum, a man with a real job who lays his life on the line for his fellow citizens every day, is fed up with pampered millionaires who play a game for a living disrespecting our country’s flag and national anthem.
And he gave them an epic ear-full in his latest viral YouTube video.
“It’s not about the act of protesting, of believing in something and pursuing. It’s the way you’re doing it,” Tatum began. “Listen, what does the American flag have to do with your perceived oppression? What does the national anthem have to do with these issues that people are bringing up? It’s a separate issue. The flag and the anthem have nothing to do with what you are talking about!”
“You’re talking about a flag that represents hard work, dedication, blood sweat and tears, sacrifice, and the thing that makes me most upset is that you have these people who turn around and take a knee and want to attribute all the negativity to the flag and the anthem and don’t want to attribute the positive.”
Tatum, who happens to be African-American, noted that this flag gave them “the opportunity to go from corn fields and picking cotton to the president of the United States of America.”
“I’m sick of the lame excuses,” Tatum said, differentiating the tactics of liberals today with Martin Luther King, who had support “because he did it with respect, integrity.”
