I wonder how all those starving in Africa feel about these millionaire crybabies blabbering on and on about how racist America is.



Millionaire crybabies?



Yup, in other words, crybaby millionaires.


Your focus should be on the crybaby billionaires of Wall St and Big Pharma who "cry" daily to congress in the form of lobbying. But no, focus on the NFL, where the average salary is $1.9 million yearly (including the $25 million paid to typically a QB on each team).


We're in an NFL thread. I'm focusing on the topic at hand.

Point me to the Wall St and Big Pharma thread and I'll be happy to focus on that.

They don't seem to matter to each other.

When they are protesting the national anthem, they are being anti-American.

MY OPINION.

That's how I see it.

That's how I interpret it.

So you agree that they are not "protesting America."

In the 70's I wasn't "protesting America." I was protesting its role in an idiotic war.


They're protesting something, but it can't be that bad, since so few know what it is..including me.

Congrats and thanks for getting the U.S. out of Vietnam!

Doesn't sound like it to me. Some comments from those who stood and those who didn't. But maybe that's irrelevant.

I know, my husband is a retired Marine, some have it very confuse where the line between been anti American and disrespecting the nation and exercising freedoms ends and begin.

I also blame poor schooling.


Cool beans, mine's Army SF vet. He doesn't agree with your assessment at all. Neither does the army vet down the road, army vet across the street, marine around the corner, or my active duty stepson in Afghanistan right now. They didn't go in for people to blindly grovel at their feet, and find it abhorrent that people DO.

I blame poor parenting and brainwashing from the MSM.

Anyway, they have every right to protest and kneel. We also have every right to point out how it accomplishes next to nothing, they're millionaire crybabies engaging in the laziest form of protest one can imagine and the hypocrisy in it all, that they care so much about black lives while their own communities kill blacks by the dozens every day.

Long story short, it's America, everyone has the right to act a fool and be laughed at.

Stop playing the national anthem at sporting events.

Separation of entertainment and state.

Go 'Hawks!

Yes, you are feee to have an OPINION.

And I'm free to tell you I disagree with your OPINION.

My OPINION is that they are protesting an injustice, not disrespecting the flag or America. They want America to be better.

my active duty husband agrees with your informal polling, as it turns out.

Problem is the injustice they're all wrapped up in kneeling about pales in comparison to the injustices they ignore. It's like protesting cold food when you haven't eaten in a week.

You are always free to interpret my support of their protests as ill-will against America. My son fought for this country too. Like you. You would be wrong to think such was the motivation, in this situation but, you are free to think the worst of me and others who support the 1st Amendment.

Peace.

Odd question.

No, I don't speak for all of them.

Are you talking about groups like the Weathermen? No, I don't speak for them. Nor did I support them.

Do you think that the players are radical agitators? Taking a knee seems a far cry from that. Maybe you should read that link I posted.

Maybe you should read what they say for yourself.

What injustice specifically?

a reply to: infolurker

From what I am understanding from the Media outlets, the protests today from London and all around the US are about their hate for Trump and not anti-police brutality or any other reason, except their hatred for our current president.

Ah yes. The intentional misunderstanding and misrepresenting of what is said - always a great tactic.

But you are free to misunderstand.
