One San Francisco Giants pitcher refused to bend the knee to the Black Lives Matter movement prior to the team’s opening day game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, citing the movement’s Marxist connections and his Christian convictions that prevent him from kneeling for man.

Relief pitcher Sean Coonrad stood as every one of his teammates and every player on the Dodgers kneeled before the National Anthem. Coonrad explained how he couldn’t kneel for the political gesture after the game.

I’m a Christian, like I said, and I just can’t get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter. How they lean towards Marxism and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family,” Coonrod said, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. “I just can’t get on board with that.

The one thing that we said is we were going to let people express themselves,” said Kapler. “We were going to give them the choice on whether they were going to stand, kneel, or do something else. That was a personal decision for [Coonrad].”

Entire rosters of Major League Baseball teams have been kneeling in submission to the Black Lives Matter movement, with every member of the Washington Nationals and New York Yankees kneeling for the movement before their game on Thursday.

Baseball’s fanbase trends more conservative than other major sports leagues such as the NFL and the NBA, suggesting that the league could recieve a backlash from fans from the display of political propaganda.

A bicycle store in Austin, Texas owned by disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong announced it would no longer sell bikes to the Austin Police Department, taking offense at the way that the city’s police department had treated the Black Lives Matter movement during recent protests in the city.

It was a staff-wide store decision,” said general manager Will Black. “It’s something we discussed for a pretty good length of time to make sure we were all on the same page and doing the right thing. All of us were uncomfortable with what’s going on. It’s all the people who work at the bike shop.

Mellow Johnny’s has adopted a marketing technique of pandering to cultural liberals before, trying to insulate the business from any transactions with companies that sell and manufacture firearms.
