In Response To: Mexico is now willing to pay for The Wall .... (Stimer)
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- The founder of the Cowboys for Trump political support group urged people who support performances of the Black National Anthem at football games to “go back to Africa” and condemned as “vile scum” people who portray the Confederate flag as racist, in a live Facebook video that has since been removed.
The selfie video of Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin [pix, below] was recorded Sunday on Facebook and watched by at least 2,200 people before it was removed from the Cowboys for Trump website. Griffin says he did not remove the video.
The 35-minute speech from Griffin on themes of God, faith, politics and country takes place on a mountaintop in southern New Mexico, where Griffin says he fasted for three days as he contemplates the nation’s political fate as the November election approaches.
In one passage, he sharply criticizes those who support performances at football games of the “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” — traditionally known as the Black National Anthem — as a gesture of solidarity against racial injustice.
“They want to destroy our country. They want to talk about playing a Black national anthem before football games? I got a better idea, why don’t you go back to Africa and form your little football teams over in Africa and you can play on a(n) old beat-out dirt lot and you can play your Black national anthem there. How about that?” he said. “This is America, we play the National Anthem in America today.”
