The NFL, President Trump, and Conservative Consistency













I am a conservative law and order sort of guy. I like the idea of giving police officers the benefit of the doubt. I like it when NFL players stand for the National Anthem.


But I also believe that conservatives like myself ought to be intellectually consistent. And I am seeing a lot of inconsistency. I am seeing people who warn about government control and champion free speech applying their principles in ways that seem to be contradictory.


The article by Jonathan Last in The Weekly Standard entitled It's Trump vs. the NFL, And We're All Losers is well worth your careful consideration.
