The NFL has become a national disgrace following the recent anti-America protests during the national anthem.
Now this same unpatriotic behavior is being seen in other sports.
Earlier this week, a WNBA team hid in the locker room during the national anthem, but when they walked out afterward the crowd reacted in a way that will give you hope.
During a recent WNBA game in Minneapolis, MN, the Los Angeles Sparks thought it would be a good idea to sit out during the national anthem.
Following in the footsteps of disgraced former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and the Pittsburg Steelers, they chose to disrespect the national anthem.
While everyone in the crowd, and the other team were on the sidelines standing in respect, they were disrespectfully sitting around in their locker room.
The moment the national anthem ended, and the crowd was in applause, the Los Angeles Sparks team exited the locker room.
Applause shifted into boos as soon as they entered the basketball court.
The crowd was furious at their blatant disrespect to their country.

Thankfully, the unpatriotic Los Angeles Sparks lost to the Minnesota Lynx, who did stand in respect during the national anthem.
As reported by ESPN:
“As was the case Sunday for the opener of the WNBA Finals, the Los Angeles Sparks opted to stay in the locker room for the national anthem Tuesday prior to Game 2.
The host Minnesota Lynx, as they did Sunday, stood at attention during the anthem. They did not lock arms, though, as they did for Game 1.
Sparks forward Nneka Ogwumike, who is the president of the executive council of the players’ union, said before the Lynx’s 70-68 win to even the series that L.A. voted again to stay in the locker room.
Ogwumike and other Sparks players have reiterated the message that their actions are not meant in disrespect to anyone, but simply a way to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Minnesota guard Renee Montgomery said the Lynx also support the movement, having first shown that support last summer with warm-up shirts.
“It’s something we’ve been doing consistently for a while now, and the message remains the same,” Montgomery said.”
Players who stayed in the locker room claimed they were there to support the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
But when you look at the video, prior to them exiting the locker room was a beautiful moment.
People of all races were respectfully standing together to honor their country.
It proves that there are Americans of all races that are opposed to “Black Lives Matter” because of their violent anti-America and anti-police rhetoric.
What do you think should be done with players who “protest” during the national anthem?
