San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod refused to bow to the Black Lives Matter agenda by taking a knee for the radical-left organization on Thursday night.

Coonrod was the only player who refused to take a knee prior to the national anthem, later explaining that he's aware of their BLM's leftist politics and Marxist leanings.

Also citing his Christian faith, Coonrod said he would never join his teammates in supplication to the far-left agenda because he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.”

After the game, Coonrod also noted that he does not support many of the radical political goals of Black Lives Matter.

During the national anthem before San Francisco Giants' Thursday night game against the Dodgers, every single player and coach for both teams took the knee in support of BLM, except Coonrod.

According to NBC Sports, every member of both teams also kneeled before the anthem, and Coonrod didn’t join them.

The pitcher added that he didn’t make his decision against kneeling until very near the game and also did not discuss his intentions with his team.

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said he supported Coonrod’s choice.

“The one thing that we said is we were going to let people express themselves,” Kapler said after the game.

“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 Sam.”

"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,” Coonrod explained to the media, according to the same NBC Sports report.

"How they lean toward Marxism and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family.

"I just can’t get on board with that."

He also said that he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.”

Captioned “today, we are one,” the video of the demonstration posted to social media pointedly did not show Coonrod’s refusal to participate.

The Giants lost the game against local rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, with a one to eight final score.

It’s worth noting, that every single player on the Yankees and Nationals also took a knee prior to the anthem Thursday night, according to The Daily Caller.

It wasn’t at all an isolated incident.

No matter what you think about the national anthem debate, choosing to stand for your beliefs, and doing it alone requires a lot of courage.
