First NHL Player to Kneel to the Anthem is Matt Dumba, but Stands for Canadian Anthem
On August 1, 2020 during the Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers NHL game opening, a tribute in support of Black Lives Matter was shown. Only one player kneeled, and that was Matt Dumba who actually doesn’t play for either of the teams, but was there in representation of the NHL’s Hockey Diversity Alliance. He also wore a hoodie with sleeves draped in ‘Black Lives Matter” lettering.
Apparently, the Hockey Diversity Alliance was created in June to “eradicate racism” in hockey and is made up of 7 former and current NHL players, at the time of this writing.
Pushing the propaganda, Dumba stated that “for those unaffected by systemic racism or unaware, I’m sure that some of you believe this topic has garnered too much attention during the last couple of months, but let me assure you, it has not. Racism is everywhere, and we need to fight against it.”
He has been pushing the Hockey Diversity Alliance organization very hard over the last few days as you’ll find in his Tweets.
To make things worse for those against kneeling for the flag or anthem, Matt Dumb DID NOT kneel for the Canadian National Anthem. No other players knelt.
Mark Fraser, another member of the Alliance and former NHL player chimed in on Twitter with his victim-hood. Pay close attention to what he says.
Notice anything? Mark Fraser says he looked up to Jerome Iginla “largely because he looked like” him.
A theme has been building over these past few months where those who are worried about racism are really the people who seem to be the most racist, or they dwell on the color of skin more than anyone else.
Want to really “solve” racism? Maybe make an example of this quote.
“I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.”– Morgan Freeman
