What this Democrat did during the national anthem will have you seeing red

Thanks to Colin Kaepernick, the national anthem is now a scene for political protest.

Democrats embraced Kaepernick and political pundits expected someone to echo his protest at the Democrat Presidential debate.

And what this Democrat did during the national anthem will have you seeing red.

Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan is at the bottom of the polls and struggling for attention.

Ryan has had trouble creating his “moment” during the debates, so many critics have accused him of trying to manufacture attention during the national anthem by refusing to place his hand over his heart while the Star Spangled Banner played before the second Democrat presidential debate.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Tim Ryan was the only Democratic candidate who did not put his hand over his heart during the national anthem at the second round of primary debates. The American flag was being presented by a local Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

Fellow candidate Marianne Williamson at first did not have her hand on her heart, but she eventually placed it there halfway through the anthem after glancing at the others.

According to the U.S. flag code, when the national anthem is played, “all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.”

Barack Obama, then a U.S. senator for Illinois, was criticized for the same thing in Iowa in 2007 when he was photographed with his hands clasped below his waist beside Democratic primary rivals Bill Richardson and Hillary Clinton, who had their right hands over their hearts.

Ryan did not take a knee as Kaepernick did.

But his protest during the national anthem was unmistakable.

However, it ended up backfiring.

CNN never asked Ryan about his national anthem protest so Ryan’s attempt to score political points by disrespecting the flag was all for naught.

  1. Every word you spoke brought tears to my eyes and pain to my heart, and fear to my brain. Tell all of the democrates to put their brain on. And that assumes thay might have a brain.
    God bless America , land that I love stand beside her and guide her. I remember Kate Smith singing that so very often.

  2. No good white-folks are ruining the whole world. They are demons in pink skin. Just look at the stuff they post on here, they are like lice on a greasy head white-folk, everywhere. hahahahahahahahaha

  4. Don’t bite Mama. Look at his name, then the way that he writes and expresses himself. A troll looking for a racist comment.

  5. He is a power hungry wannabe looking for a sponser. Hey Tim, George isn’t fussy, he might even take a turncoat like you.

  6. He said 57 ifin I remember correctly,that’s exactly how many Muslim states there are,he had the number right just wasn’t counting American states

  7. I believe that we earnestly need to pray the Trump and the Republicans continue on. Pray and act at the voting booth.

  8. If you remember Tim Ryan started out and ran as a Republican and got elected as a Republican. after he got elected he announced that he was switching over to the Democrats. He turned he back on the very voters who elected him. Now, he refuses to honor the National Anthem. I have to believe that his personal agenda is to bring harm to the people of this nation because I totally believe that he will turn against the rest of us as well.
