Congresswoman "Takes a Knee" In Support of NFL Protests

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) utilized a special congressional procedural to register her objections to POTUS’s anthem protest condemnations and to defend the First Amendment. Lee stated “I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor, I kneel in honor of the First Amendment, I kneel because the flag is a symbol for freedom, I kneel because I am going to stand against racism, I kneel because I will stand with those young men and I’ll stand with our soldiers and I’ll stand with America because I kneel.”,
