The Kansas City Chiefs may have lost to the Cincinnati Bengals for the right to head to the Super Bowl, but everyone got a collective “W” before the game even started thanks to the patriotic crowd that had shown up to watch the game.

During the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner before the start of the game, the audio seemed to be faltering for Grammy Award-winning artist Ashanti, who seemed to have a malfunctioning microphone. Regardless, the show must go on and she carried on singing it as if it was working.

And while Ashanti continued to sing in on-and-off silence, the crowd at Arrowhead Stadium wasn’t about to let our National Anthem not reverberate throughout the area. In an incredibly beautiful moment, the crowd began singing the anthem themselves.

In the recent past, the NFL suffered from a serious attack of social justice trifling, including players kneeling during the National Anthem as a show of protest against the United States. It even adopted Black Lives Matter messaging, including slapping the name of the political group and various slogans all over fields and helmets.

But as the NFL descended into leftism, the fans departed en masse, showing huge dips in attendance and viewership. In 2018, the NFL lost 33 percent of its viewership.

Needless to say, the league’s penchant to cave to the social justice community never paid off for it. Fans abandoned it, and the players that lead the anti-American protests in spirit, such as Colin Kaepernick, backstabbed them despite rolling out the red carpet for him. It’s been made clear time and again that when it comes to politics, the NFL isn’t the place.

But it is the place for patriotism, and regardless of the NFL’s attempts to appease an ungrateful and viciously biased left, the fans haven’t bought into it and continue to show pride and support for the greatest country that has ever existed in the history of mankind. The proof was seen at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, and it should be a massive wake-up call to the league.

Football and America go hand-in-hand and despite the hard-left attempting to co-opt it for their cause like they do with everything else, they won’t have enough to overcome the patriotism of the fans. They may win victories here and there, but in the end, American pride will always shine brighter and last longer than any socio-political trend.
