Seems as if the disrespect of the national anthem has started to bleed into college basketball now too. The season is just getting started for college basketball and Muslim player Rasool Samir decided to disrespect the anthem and shoot baskets as the crowd sang the anthem. Rasool Samir is considered a ‘red-shirt freshman’ at Garden City Community College in Kansas. Look for Rasool Samair to become the latest cult figure and hero of the left.

It was unusual because there’s a team rule that the entire basketball team was supposed to stay inside the locker room until after the national anthem had concluded.
But as the crowd began singing about the bombs bursting in air and the rocket’s red glare, the Muslim basketball player grabbed a ball, walked onto the court and began shooting baskets.
“It was an ‘in your face slam,’” he said.
Mr. Howard decided enough was enough. He was tired of people disrespecting the national anthem. So at the conclusion of the song he walked onto the court and confronted Samir.
“I walked onto the floor and I told the guy he should respect the flag and if he’s not going to respect the flag, he should get off the court and get out of the gym,” Mr. Howard told the Todd Starnes Show.
“You should respect the flag. If you don’t respect the flag, just stay seated. Don’t make a big scene,” he said. “At least respect the people that paid for your scholarship to get you on this campus – like myself and everyone else in that gym.”
There are numerous Muslims on college basketball teams all over the country and they have no problems respecting the national anthem. I don’t think this a Muslim thing as much as it is a left-wing, America hating thing.
