Proud, flag-loving patriots who hate seeing the American flag be disrespected may have no other option but to tune out of the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show.
The show has been mired in controversy because of a concerted effort by radical far-left activists to stop any artist from performing at the event. To them, any performance would be a slap in the face to unemployed former NFL quarterback and continued race-baiting agitator Colin Kaepernick.
Thankfully, some artists resisted the pressure and signed up for the gig anyway, including the pop rock band Maroon 5 and rappers Big Boi and Travis Scott, among others. But judging by the rhetoric of Maroon 5’s lead singer, Adam Levine, trouble may still be expected.
How so? During an interview this week with Entertainment Tonight, Levine said that the band plans to honor those who believe in the concept of so-called “social justice.”
“They will be [heard] — that’s all I want to say because I don’t want to spoil anything,” he said, referring to those who’ve been complaining about the band’s participation in the show.
“And once again, I like to think that people know where I stand as a human being after two decades doing this. I’m not a speaker. I’m not a public speaker. I do speak, but it’s through the music. My life’s work and what I put out into the universe has been positive and hopefully inspiring.”

The singer also admitted that the decision to participate in the show hadn’t been made with ease.
“No one thought about it more than I did,” he said. “No one put more thought and love into this than I did. … I spoke to many people. Most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.”
It’s unclear why deciding to perform at one of the most-viewed events of the year caused him such consternation. While it’s true far-left activists have been complaining, who cares? Who are a bunch of radical nut jobs to decide who gets to perform at the Super Bowl!?
And regarding the rap musicians Maroon 5 is slated to perform with, Levine enthusiastically said, “We love having there be a presence that this is the the show that’s gonna have
the biggest hip hop presence that there has ever been on the show.”
Given his soft stance toward the left-wing mob, chances are he and his band mates may kneel during their halftime performance. In fact, that’s exactly what Roger Waters, the co-founder of the rock band Pink Floyd, has asked all of the event’s performers to do.
“My colleagues Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi are performing during the halftime show at the Super Bowl this coming Sunday,” he said in a statement published to Facebook Wednesday.
“I call upon them to ‘take a knee’ on stage in full sight. I call upon them to do it in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, to do it for every child shot to death on these mean streets, to do it for every bereaved mother and father and brother and sister.”
The majority of suspects killed by the police are done so justifiably, but never mind the facts …
The question then becomes this: Do you want to take the risk of witnessing a bunch of multimillionaire artists disrespecting the flag?
