Or was it a question of the human rights of the (mostly ALL) CRIMINALS that get shot?

I already posted a response to that general premise, the following video, which is about those morons heckling the cops, which is by an American Black Man who in discussing the incident destroys the entire premise of the 'BLM protest'. The video you refused to watch, of course:

Exercising one's right to free speech, a right granted to us by the document that helped found this very nation, is not disrespectful to the nation itself.


Of course it is disrespectful to our nation.

It is completely possible to have free speech without disrespecting our National Anthem. I plan to boycott these morons and their entire franchise.


How is it disrespectful to our nation?

Is our nation defined by the ceremonies that precede a fricken football game?

Isn't it disrespectful? It's a denouncement of the system. Just because it may be disrespectful doesn't mean it isn't right. That said I grew up in the 60's and 70's.

Let them sit.

Let everyone who wants to sit, sit!

I'll still stand.


Even when you find there is not one honest person in the Government and no one representing the people?
How about when the new SS comes to take you away, still standing? I was one of the very few in my town who protested when we decided so fast to head over and take out Iraq, the rest waved their flags and stood.

What is the anthem about anyway, war and glory and flag worship, I hate it.

I grew up in the 80's and 90's...when the national anthem was brought to us by a famous recording artist sponsored by a corporate product.

If that's not disrespectful and an act of free speech is, well...we have to rethink some things.

But it isn't disrespectful for all cops/military members full stop like people are making it out to be.

And I would venture to say it isn't about respect, more about representation.

Oh and Brandon Marshal for the Broncos just took part for those keeping score.

Yes but much more. Opportunity. Equal rights. Think Blacks have the same rights as us? Check out sentencing for both on the same charge. Much more as well.

I don't stand for the government. I don't stand for the politicians. I don't stand for the flag. I don't stand for the laws. I don't stand for the anthem.

I stand for the people who believe in freedom. I stand against censorship. I stand against government oppression. I stand against government corruption. I stand against the cowards in political office. I stand against the laws that restrict our freedoms.

That's my protest.

Oh I am right there with you.
It is true that it is not institutionalized any more, but still very much around.
But hey, there are youtube videos with a black guy saying it doesn't happen, maybe we are wrong.

The fact that they're only protesting police brutality against blacks, but nobody else, is exclusive, and its racist.

This BLM stuff is fading away.
It will get tossed to the curb as soon as this election cycle is over with. Remember Occupy? Didn't think so, nobody does.

Why you ask? Because the political monies funding it will dry up when their usefulness is over. Soros will "move on" to the next shake up to promote his agenda.

Maybe they should have Roseanne as the spokesperson for the 'anti-sports national anthem movement'.

End of the day it is the right of all US people to honor whatever they want or don't want. I served 20 years in the US military. I would never bash someone for burning a flag or anything else regarding songs or respect to the US. I would not have served if it meant I had to arrest or prosecute people who did so. It would be sickening to me. All I know is if they knew my situation of being put in charge of a route clearance platoon (IEDs) with no experience because the last guy died they would stand. They would understand I looked after those Soldiers like my own children. I forced them to do things to prepare themselves and stay alert. Things that saved their lives. Things that made them hate me. Nobody died on my watch. I cared so much I moved my MRAP to the front to protect them. I ended up getting hit hard but that's ok because the other vehicles had 5-8 people in it as opposed to mine with 3. The next officer that took over told me later they were the best unit he served with. I don't know what this is all about but if they knew the real situations of what goes down they would stand. There are times people make poor choices but overall, majority, people serve this country and its citizens with honor.

"BLM stuff?" Does one new movement negated issues that have been around for centuries? Well, since the Emancipation Proclamation at least. Does it make it easier to dismiss the issues?

This isn't going away after the election.

Hey PM me if Canada's ongoing abuses against Native American's ever becomes an issue around here. I'll come pester up the issue.


Think you ought to be cleaning up your own house before rocking the boat on US down here. We have enough challenges in bringing things down to a rational outcome as it is.

Another attack. A pathetic one too. I know about the Aboriginal problem. Surprised? Weak sauce.

Let's see how these overpaid primadonas protest after their not paid.Not saying there isn't a police violence problem.Im just not getting protests from"Oppressed"people with multiple million dollar contracts.Maybe another socialist,anti-American, Canadian can chime in with their holier than though attitude.

RIIIIGHT!

That's why you pestered me up with BS when I was the one in here making the strongest focal point for how the blacks can see a turn around.

When I see you go make threads rallying for your own Native American's then maybe I'll take you supposed care & cause for universal human rights seriously.

I disagree intrepid, barking at the wrong tree is no having balls, they actually have none, the anthem and the flag can not come around and fight back, that is why they are protesting, symbols, is easier and for sissies, why not go after the root of the problems plaguing this nation, you know why? they got after symbols that can not fight back because the same system that keeps the oppression in this nation is the one that allow for NFL players to make the outrageous salaries they make, talking about economic disparities, right, and privilege.
