Killer Mike Goes in on Vice President Pence for Leaving NFL Game After Protests
Vice President Mike Pence stirred up a large amount of controversy this weekend after he walked out of the Indianapolis Colts game due to players kneeling during the National Anthem. While many on social media have been sharing their outrage over the VP's move, Killer Mike puts on his activism hat to share a passionate message about the controversy.
The Run the Jewels member pens the message on Instagram, bringing up the Constitution's First Amendment, which gives the right to freedom of speech. He questions how Pence may feel about the amendment given his latest stunt, noting that the players' right to protest is protected under the First Amendment.
"I wonder how he feels about the constitution," Mike writes. "The document that contains the principles this republic is founded on. The 1st being #FreeSpeech. Free speech is what protects this and any protest. The constitution that guards against Tyranny like the state abusing and denying citizens full rights. U know the stuff that prompted the kneel. The kneel is to bring awareness to the public that officers of the law are playing Judge, Jury and executioner therefore denying Americans Citizens their constitutional rights becuz they are a racial minority. I wonder if he knows he and the soldiers I respect and value swear to uphold that constitution and not simply be propaganda agents for the state."
Mike also hopes the next election can reflect a better change in leadership, one that wouldn't involve Pence.
"He loves religion to much to hold public office in my opinion and he shows that he cares nothing for our republic by not honoring the constitutional rights of its citizens," the Atlanta rapper continues. "I'm glad he left that event because he cheapened it with his presence. God speed on our next election. I hope we send his religious nut ass back home to relish in his false understanding of what this country is and we never see him on a national stage again."
