Kneeling during the anthem is honoring what our founding fathers fought for

I think it's because they truly believe that the statistic that liberals outnumber conservatives in this country is fake news and just because they have control of the government that is the majority opinion in the country.

Yep. And my point is that these fake flag worshipers don't really care about proper flag protocol


Oh whatever, it is not about worshiping a damm flag . It is about standing up together in a moment of unity and respect and being proud to be an American. No matter what color or religion or sex or political affiliation you are were Americans lets sing our anthem and raise our flag. TOGETHER.

So stop with the worship a flag. We just love our country and are proud to be Americans.

Oh really? You don't say? I've been saying this exact thing to right wing assholes who declare they just HAVE to be politically incorrect just because they have the right to do so for years now.


Strange, I don't see you applying the same to the left wing assholes with your little OP here... Selective self righteousness at it's finest, really.

Hey, you're the one who said "There is no Nazism in America." I pointed out that you were completely and utterly wrong. I never said that there is no left wing violence so your "point" has no relevance.


Nazism if it exists at all in America is so small and fringe that is non existent.

Maybe you should focus your outrage and efforts on something actually is affecting the nation such as black on black crime.

I am not sure what they are protesting, but I know it looks disrespectful to this country and I don't like it.


They have every right to protest and I have every right to not like them for it.

Why do conservatives even try to boycott stuff. The fact of the matter is that most companies, people or industry do not care because their wallets are barely dealt a blow. I mean the NFL doesn't care.
When the left does it, they take notice.

I am not saying this to anger people, I am just stating a fact.

This is why the conservatives crying and whining about this, really do not matter since they will affect not change whatsoever.


Lol. For each additional dollar a person earns they become less likely to vote democrat. I think you are confusing tweets with purchasing power.

Conservatives and liberals may both be violent, but the right-wing's kill count is certainly a lot higher.

No. I'm not politicizing anything. This whole off topic tangent started because another poster tried to equate liberalism with violence and downplay any right wing violence. So I was showing that right wing violence exists too. I certainly am not labeling you as violent as I hate being labeled as violent by idiot conservatives that stereotype all liberals as violent. I just want you to admit that both sides are at fault. There is a narrative out there that the left is the only violent side or more violent than the right and that is just not true.

I mean the incident that lead to rioting. According to you.



Well obviously he didn't do nothing right?


Right. Until you point out what it was that led to this.


His actions.

His actions and his actions alone led to all that took place.


Which lead to what outcome? You seem to be having another of those reading comprehension episodes.

Over the past 5 years?

I'd take that bet any day of the week and twice on Tuesday.

You take a knee disrespecting what I believe is wrong, I protest with my wallet or don't go to that event anymore. I don't have to acknowledge their actions just like they choose to protest by taking a knee to the anthem or flag on which I respect a lot and honor for I know what it means to me.

To me this is nothing but manufactured drama to keep the masses wound on dumb issues.


You seem wound on it, yourself, but I'm sure you're above to the masses in all ways considered.

Elitism is fun.

Besides, Trump is the one who manufactured it over the weekend in the first place. No one was really discussing this issue much anymore until Trump had to open his stupid diarrhea hole. Now the whole NFL is pissed off at him and we are all talking about this issue thanks to him.


It's unfortunate how that small, yet crucial, piece of information is being left out by Trump supporters.

They claim "I don't want my sports to be political," yet they've never ONCE had a problem with The National Anthem (which is political) up until Trump shot off a tweet.... in which folks responded... by exercising Constituionally protected rights, and that's triggered many into a frenzy of "I AM SO OUTRAGED IT IS SO DISGRACEFUL."

Which, worth noting, people at bars/restaurants don't stand up for the National Anthem and I don't see Trump supporters whining about how "disgraceful," that is. I guarantee many of the folks whining about how "disgraceful," it is to exercise a Constituionally protected right were sitting on their asses in their recliners during the National Anthem.... again, no outrage there.

I don't think people know what freedom means/entails. It means that no individual - no man, no man, no child - is forced to stand, forced to put their hand over their chest, because they have to. Because they have the freedom NOT to.

Just like crybabies have the freedom to boycott the NFL.... or take onto Internet forums about how bad Colin Kaepernick made one's butt hurt, which is the ultimate irony, here.

These snowflakes need to get over it. They always talk about "America is becoming a nation of over-glorified whiny babies who cry and whine about anything they find offensive," not realizing that is exactly what they're doing, here.

There is Nazism, Liberal Extremeism, Right Extremism Communism, Socialism, Muslim Extremism, and Gangism, Anarchism.

Take your pick on which one is worse. The flavor is alt-right so far but don't let that distract you from the rest of the extremist fringe groups. You know because they aren't the problem only when the "political" party wants them to be or paid to be by the media.

I'm not offended by people kneeling during the anthem like I am by someone being purposely intolerant. In fact, kneeling during the anthem doesn't offend me at all. So when someone does it I don't care. It is their decision. If they don't feel like the country is honoring rights equally then they have the right to make that grievance known by not honoring our symbols.

How is it disrespectful to take a knee?

Isn't that a fairly universal human signal for respect?

No. You are saying that they rioted because he was a criminal. I seriously doubt that.

I do willingly admit both sides are at fault majorly. Divide and conquor is the plan.
