GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): It just becomes more and more comical every day. These are grown men, and they’re engaging in this, it’s kind of like, it’s almost like middle school play acting. I know the phrase “virtue signaling” is overdone, but it’s like they’re engaged in something that is almost not real. That is just starting to spread like this weird, hysterical social justice virus.
There is a social problem with how black men are dealing with other black men. There is more violence between black men and black men than black men and white cops and you know that.
JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): So does that excuse what goes on?
GUTFELD: No, I would like to see an equal amount of attention devoted to that.
WILLIAMS: I think there is a ton. We pay a lot of attention to it.
GUTFELD: Not by the players. They’re kneeling –
WILLIAMS: Are you kidding?
GUTFELD: They’re kneeling during the anthem to protest police violence, against cops.
WILLIAMS: That's where you are so wrong. See, this is like saying, “Oh, you know these guys don’t know what they’re standing for. They don’t know what they’re doing.
GUTFELD: They can’t explain it. The players are not explaining it.
WILLIAMS: No. In fact, the owners have made the point that the players are involved in social causes in charities, that they do a great deal and that this is not about somehow a bunch of juveniles who don’t know what they’re doing or don’t know how to protest. There is a social problem with how black men are dealing with other black men.
