Oklahoma state representative Sean Roberts threatened to examine the "significant tax benefits" received by the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder if players kneel during the national anthem before Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz.
This anti-patriotic act makes clear the NBA's support of the Black Lives Matter group and its goal of defunding our nation's police, its ties to Marxism and its efforts to destroy nuclear families.
"If the Oklahoma City Thunder leadership and players follow the current trend of the NBA by kneeling during the national anthem prior to Saturday's game, perhaps we need to reexamine the significant tax benefits the State of Oklahoma granted the Oklahoma City Thunder organization when they came to Oklahoma.
"Perhaps these funds would be better served in support of our police departments rather than giving tax breaks to an organization that supports defunding police and the dissolution of the American nuclear family."
In addition to kneeling for the anthem, most NBA players have worn a Black Lives Matter shirt over their jersey during the song and featured an equality or justice message in place of their name on the uniform during the game.
