Country artist Neal McCoy poked fun at National Football League players kneeling for the national anthem in a new viral song.
"Take a knee, my a**," McCoy sings to laughter from his audience.
The patriotic singer records himself saying the Pledge of Allegiance
with troops and others and has built an audience of thousands who watch
the short videos on his Facebook page.
"I think it's something that some people are scared to
step up and say something about it, but if you give them an opportunity
to echo it through you then they jump right in," McCoy told "Fox &
Friends" on Sunday.
McCoy said he has gotten some flack for his
recording, with some people even calling him a racist. Others have
encouraged him, though, saying they agree with his message.
singer also shared some of his family memories, mentioning that his
grandfather was in World War I and his father met his Filipino mother
when he was a soldier in the Korean War. His mother encouraged his
siblings and him to be grateful for the blessings of America, McCoy
Way to go Neal. I will not watch the NFL as long as those clowns take a knee.
