Media Collusion: Denouncing Pence for "Stunt" While Praising NFL Players Who Kneel During Anthem

Once again, free speech rights are the exclusive purview of the left. Anyone else exercising theirs will be denounced!

Vice President Mike Pence, shown above in his home state of Indiana at an NFL game between the Indianopolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Pence, along with his wife in a Colts Jersey stand at attention during the playing of the National Anthem while on the field several players from the 49ers showed disrespect for the flag. Shortly after Pence and his wife walked out.

In a series of tweets Pence explains:
It didn't take long for the usual whiners to attack Pence:
The vice president later came under fire from 49ers safety Eric Reid, who called the early exit a “PR stunt” and example of “systemic oppression.” “He knew our team has had the most players protest,” Mr. Reid told reporters. “He knew we were probably going to do it again. And so this is what systemic oppression looks like—a man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts.”
So now these fabulously rich NFL players are "oppressed?" Unbelievable considering that no one "thwarted" their effort to disrespect the flag.

And apparently, the feeling that Pence doesn't have the same right to express his views as an overpaid NFL player was widely shared by the left wing sports press and other players who have such praise for the players engaging in this behavior while denouncing anyone who dares to express their views and criticize:
DAVID MUIR: (music) Vice President Pence sparking a firestorm. Was it a political stunt?
RON CLAIBORNE: (outdoor noise) How much in taxpayer money was wasted on this stunt?
BILL WEIR: …an expensive political stunt.
KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: This political stunt…
PETER ALEXANDER: …a political stunt…
ANA CABRERA: Was this all just a political stunt?
JENNIFER RUBIN: Of course it was a political stunt.
VAN JONES: You’ve got now the president, the vice president pulling off a stunt to oppose a stunt protesting a protest.
ALISYN CAMEROTA: This was a quarter million dollar publicity stunt?
RYAN NOBLES: …just a big publicity stunt.
JAMES ROSEN: …a preplanned publicity stunt…
RICHARD LUI: What the vice president did here, was this a stunt?
TYLER TYNES: This seems like a PR stunt.
DONTE STALLWORTH: …this whole staged publicity stunt…
JOE WATKINS: …sending the vice president to the game was a preplanned stunt.
I don't suppose it ever occurred to any of these overpaid whiners that the "STUNT" is what the players are doing?

At this rate, the further politicizing of NFL games by activist players who disrepect our flag and anthem will drive the NFL viewership and ticket sales even further into the ground. No doubt when this starts hitting players in the wallet they will be first in line to demand some sort of government handout. I have an idea. Let's buy the protesting players a one way ticket to a country where they won't feel so oppressed. I hear North Korea is nice this time of year!
