Soldiers only die protecting corporate interests not freedom and liberty. Get real.
Yes sir you are right. All those soldiers who died during the Revolutionary War were all fighting for corporate interests.
As well as all the WWI & WWII vets. Hitler and the Japanese weren't a threat to anybody's freedom right?
U.S. history is more than the last 50 years pick up a book and learn a little or conversely maybe those "constitutional scholar" buddies you've talked about while visiting the yacht club could clue you in.
You're as disrespectful as it gets.
Kaepernick, who said he refuses to “stand to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people,” has said he’ll continue his protest until police brutality is no longer an issue.

so i guess it has been discussed within the seattle seahawks locker room whether or not the whole team would sit during the anthem.
Megan Rapinoe took a knee during the national anthem prior to the Seattle Reign’s game on Sunday. She was expected to do the same on Wednesday, but the Washington Spirit moved the timing of the anthem to ensure that wouldn’t happen.
The Spirit sent an email on Wednesday minutes before the game against the Reign. The release admitted to playing the nation anthem before either team made their way to the pitch in order to prevent Rapinoe from protesting.
i really think they are missrepresenting a protest.
so are just the black players going to sit? are they protesting the police? are they protesting racial inequalities? are they protesting for black lives matters?
This is getting out of hand.
will kaep ever stand for the anthem again?
i am still confused as to what exactly the purpose of disrespecting your country to protest...

This is really gonna start to piss cops off everywhere. And they will say we will not work the games if the NFL allows it.
This could get interesting.

Free speech would not be allowed under Hillary. She told the Benghazi families they were going to get the film maker. She totally ignored the free speech aspect of it, even used free speech as an excuse on why things went south. She never defended the right of the film maker.

And that has what to do with this type of protest? NOTHING! Nice attempt at deflection and discrediting though.
