Racist NFL Brat Raises Fist During Anthem, No Longer Laughing When Jerry Jones Finds Out

Damontre Moore has been raising his fist during the national anthem in solidarity with the “Black Power” movement ever since Week 3 when he returned from suspension. However, the racist NFL player is no longer laughing. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones just found out about his little stunt, and he has made sure that Moore will regret his disrespectful behavior.

Initially, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not see Moore raise his fist, but he was alerted to the protest by Dallas Morning News reporter Brandon George. “If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play,” Jones said in response. “OK? Understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play. Period. Period,” he continued, making his sentiments clear.
“We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have. I’m not aware and wouldn’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not aware of that,” Jones added. “We as a team are very much on the page together. We have made our expression that we’re together.”
The NFL’s game operations manual does not specifically mandate that players are required to stand respectfully for the anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking,” states the manual. “The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.”
The manual adds that “failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
The NFL issued a statement the first time Colin Kaepernick didn’t stand last year, saying, “Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem.” More recently, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said the league believes “our players have a right to express themselves.” However, according to NBC Sports, Jones disagrees, and he has sent a strong message to those who would kneel or raise their fist during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Damontre Moore, the defensive end for the Texas Cowboys who raised his fist during the national anthem, has been fired. From now on, if he wants to protest, he’ll have to do it on his own time.

According to Moore, he has been raising his fist at the end of the national anthem since Week 3, when he returned from his suspension. “It’s just something that I do,” he said. “I’ve got my morals. I’ve got my values and my things that I think about. I don’t want to cause no attention to nobody else and bring unwanted attention, but on the same token, you know, there’s certain things that people are doing it for. So, for me, it’s just one of those personal things that I do,” he continued.
“I don’t feel like it is [disrespecting the flag],” added Moore. “I’ve got a lot of family members that are in the military. My brother just got done serving a tour. He was over there, stationed in Germany, both my granddads, my granddad and my stepdad, was heavily involved in the military. I’ve got other family members who are. So, for me, I don’t feel like it’s disrespecting it,” he went on.
“Everybody is entitled to their opinion,” he continued. “Who is to say I’m right? Who is to say they’re wrong? Who’s to say that they’re right? Who’s to say that I’m wrong? At the end of the day, you do whatever you do, but I know I am going to stand up and not disrespect the flag like that. I don’t do anything to cause unwanted attention during that process, so whatever I do afterwards, I don’t feel like it should matter honestly.”
As the controversy surrounding the national anthem continues in the NFL, with overpaid, ungrateful professional football players still kneeling during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has laid down the law for his own players. This decision to fire Moore sends a strong message to other players who might have a mind to disrespect the country which has afforded them so much opportunity.
