"Yeah, I certainly disagree with what (Trump) said. I thought it was just divisive," he told "Kirk and Callahan" on Boston's WEEI Monday in his most extensive comments on the subject.
Brady -- who locked arms with teammates during the national anthem on Sunday -- continued, "Like I said, I just want to support my teammates. I am never one to say, 'Oh, that is wrong. That is right.' I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust. Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day."
Brady also told "Kirk and Callahan" that he thinks "everyone has the right to do whatever they want to do. If you don't agree, that is fine. You can voice your disagreement, I think that is great. It's part of our democracy. As long as it is done in a peaceful, respectful way, that is what our country has been all about."
As an Army veteran, my opinion is that blindly worshiping the flag is a better way of showing you don't know what the flag stands for or means.
You may not agree with their cause, but you damn sure don't have the right to take away their ability to protest the flag and ironically are dishonoring the VERY flag you are trying to defend with your actions.

It's not the kneeling that people have a problem with. These athletes makes way more money then they should and are giving none of it back to the communities who are suffering while they live beyond the means of normal man. Fight for equality but don't whine for it. This is attention seeking behavior and nothing more...none of them will do the right thing and help make this world better. They'll just kneel like cowards.
What? Tons of athletes have personal charities and do community work. Why are you making stuff up?
Politics and sports...next it will be our children's cartoons..."Today Dora visits the White House. Up next. Diago gets deported. See why that's bad on this all new episode." That's where we are heading...right down the toilet...if there's water.
Children's entertainment has already been corrupted. Example[/q uote]
I worded it wrong and spoke out of turn. Thanks for the correction. But I bet what they give is little to nothing compared to how much they make. But then again i could be wrong.
Omg...that's what's under my bed... see shes now b and eing peoples homes. That book has five stars. I wonder how many people in that publishing company flooded that book with five stars to give it five stars. Because I don't believe that...it can't be true... I refuse to believe that book is making money.edit on 25-9-2017 by ConscienceZombie because: I can

Ill ask the same question here?
Why do we stand during the anthem? Respect.. When you dont it is disrespect period.
The flag stands for all fallen Americans not just military.
It even stands for the black people shot by police so why protest it and not the police?
It is disrespectful to alot of us. Im sry you guys cant understand that what they are doing is disrespectful to guys like me.
