Here’s a breathless solution to the growing controversy over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.
It’s a way players can protest without offending patriotic Americans.
The way to do it is to hold their breath during the playing of our Anthem. They fact they are not breathing is a clear sign of how deeply they feel, yet they can do it while they’re still standing, so it won’t desecrate the flag yet still express their deep feelings.
If they should pass out in protest they’ll be cheered by people on both sides.
