Democrat Plantation Dwelling NFL Player Attacks Peers Who Refuse To Show Hatred For America *VIDEO* #NFL #NFLBoycott

Two National Football League stars on opposing teams had to be separated before a game on Sunday over long-simmering tensions related to the national anthem protests as Colin Kaepernick weighed in on the side of an old ally.

The incident between Eric Reid of the Carolina Panthers and Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles took place before the start of the teams’ Week 7 matchup at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Sunday.

As teams do every week, members of the Eagles and Panthers began congregating at midfield for the ceremonial coin flip to determine which team receives the ball to start the game.

But television cameras zoomed in to an apparent scuffle that broke out nearby.

Video footage shows members of the Panthers trying to restrain Reid, who appeared angry.

Reid was visibly agitated with Jenkins, who plays the same position for the Eagles. Both Reid and Jenkins are safeties.

Kaepernick publicly sided with Reid, his former teammate with the 49ers.

The former quarterback tweeted on Sunday: ‘Eric Reid!!! Enough said!!!’

Kaepernick added the hashtag ‘#ImwithReid’.

Moments later, during the singing of the national anthem, Reid was seen kneeling on the field, showing his racism and utter hatred toward America.

After the game on Sunday, Reid blasted Jenkins as a ‘sellout’ and a ‘neocolonialist,’ according to Deadspin.

‘His actions speak louder than his words,’ the Carolina defensive back told reporters in his locker room.

Reid accused Jenkins of ‘co-opting’ the protest movement ignited by Kaepernick.

‘He was corrupt from the jump,’ Reid told reporters.

‘He knew what he was doing from the offset.

‘His goal was to sell us out, and he did that.’

When Jenkins was told about Reid’s comments, he responded: ‘I would never get up here and say anything bad about somebody who I know whose intentions were real about helping the community, especially another black man.

‘I respect him, I’m glad he has a job, I’m glad he’s back in the league, I’ll leave it like that.’

The feud between Reid and Jenkins stems from a disagreement between the two men over the players’ response to the controversy over social justice protests during the singing of the national anthem.

Reid, a former member of the San Francisco 49ers, was one of the first players alongside Kaepernick to kneel during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner.

Jenkins also staged his own form of protest. He and other teammates raised a fist in the air during the national anthem.

While both Reid and Jenkins agreed there was reason to protest, they did not agree on the next step.

Jenkins agreed to stop raising his fist in the air after the NFL agreed to commit close to $100million toward advancing social justice issues.

Last year, the agreement was struck between league owners and a group known as the Players Coalition, which was co-founded by Jenkins and retired NFL star Anquan Boldin.

But there were players who were not on board.

Reid and Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas said they were withdrawing from the agreement.

They were livid because they claimed that Boldin and Jenkins purposely excluded Kaepernick from their discussions with the owners.

‘[Colin Kaepernick and I] believe a lot of players should have stepped up for Colin,’ Reid told reporters on Sunday after his team’s win.

‘I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation.

‘He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funding.

‘It’s cowardly. He sold us out.’

Reid and Thomas were also said to be angry because the donation made by the NFL was promised with the understanding that the players would end their sideline protests.
