They try to take each other's head off on the field, but turn into snowflakes when the President of their country admonishes them.

What?
Expressing solidarity over the idiotic statements made by an unqualified and narcissistic president who is desperate to maintain his base (this means you) while deflecting from his inability to accomplish anything, makes them "snowflakes?"

Tell me, what's his beautiful health plan look like? Have you seen it? Does he have one? What's he waiting for?

Here's another thing that these cultists conveniently forget. These cultists support people who wear and fly the confederate flag which is by far the most offensive symbol against our great flag. There is no comparison to athletes taking a knee vs. the death and destruction that the confederate flag symbolizes for this country.

Yet, when these cults fly that god awful flag, it's a 1st amendment right to bear it and express your opinion on "state's rights (aka slavery)." But when athletes take the knee, that's all of a sudden a bridge too far for your cultist zealots and is "unamerican."

Take a good look at the mirror right wing cultists. You just might happen to be an ignorant fool to compare your seeds of hate with those that are against the cultist beliefs you have.

Sure it is. And the fans will say to hell with the nfl! They may even lose government subsidies, fan money, viewership, and sponsorship. So they are screwing themselves and are too stupid to realize it. Football should not be about politics.

Tell that to the president.
He seems to have chosen to make it so. Bigly.
Where did he speechify about it? Was that a political rally? No?

Fake protest. These fools started by Kaepenik during Obama. So stop blaming Trump. Just another excuse for liberals to loose their sh!t.


Liberals are most definitely not the only loosing their #.

Or have the past few threads which have stretched on and on and on have exclusively been liberal?

"Fake protest?"

Lol, you're being led by the nose.

I'm sure each and every one of you who are upset over Constituionally protected rights each time you've EVER watched NFL football you've stood up at home, or when you're out at a bar or restaurant showing the game, when the National Anthem comes on.

I'd bet my bottom dollar that each and every one of you upset stand up each and every time you hear the National Anthem.

Bunch of whiny hypocrites acting like super patriots.

Protest is a Constitutionally protected right. There's far more "outrage," over this and selective approaches to who and who shouldn't be allowed Constituional rights.

When it comes to skinheads and other white supremacist groups - sure! Freedom of speech applies.

When it comes to NFL players - nope! You can't protest, that's disrespectful!

Bunch of clowns, but it's to be expected when Trump is elected.

He found embers of protest and buried them in tinder before blowing them out with oxygen. People are pouring fuel on in a last ditch effort to stop the flames.

Protesting the funerals of soldiers is honouring what our founding fathers fought for. Protesting with Tiki torches with White Nationalists and Nazis is honouring what our founding fathers fought for. Ironically, this argument only comes out when it is politically correct enough to do so.

Perhaps NFL players should don Nazi outfits, and start heiling Hitler before games to gain the respect of the POTUS and others.

Just a thought, Nazi's seem to given more sympathy than Constituionally protected Americans.

(The Founding Fathers of America would have, more than likely, slaughtered the Nazi regime, but that's speculation)

There's a double irony that half a million Americans died fighting against nazis within living memory. How ironic their grandchildren would be marching with swastikas in small American towns.

Strawman argument I don't think anyone is denying they have a right to protest. The argument is should they disrespect their country to do so. I see this as burning down ypour neighborhood in a protest it's counter productive. The USA is diverse unlike other nations we don't have nationalities to bind us together.

The only thing that binds American's together is their love of country. Without that the US cannot exist. The only or should I say the last thing that binds us together is under attack. I'd add sports in that catagory as well football and baseball bind Americans who have nothing in common. You can have poor rich black whit Hispanic be fans of a team.

It see this almost as an attack on American society to destroy the things that bind us as citizens. I've watched over the decades as everyone is attempting to separate themselves from everyone else. No one wins here unless you are hoping for the country to fall apart.

The NFL bans many forms of free speech amd expressions, as is their right as a private entity.

They have banned things like dancing, spiking or praying in the endzone after a touchdown, claiming it is a distraction that detracts from the game.

This hysterical kneeling fad is the biggest distraction ever so it is the inconsistency and hypocrisy that pisses people off.

The NFL BANNED the Cowboys from wearing stickers to support the officers massacred by the blm terrorist sniper yet they allow Krapernick to wear pig-cop socks and that is another blatant example of their blatant inconsistency and hypocrisy.

It is hilarious to see all the crybullies whine about other people using their free speech to criticize their sjw hero worship.

I highly doubt that. Maybe Nazis should put on football uniforms.

Watching your rights being stolen from under your nose.... What respect does that show to your founding fathers?

Lol at this one MSM headline which has the sheep in a spin.

The American Nazi party was formed in the 60s if I remember correctly. It’s founder was a ww2 vet. But yeah I agree, and communists are literally tearing down American statues. Strange times.

Could you please point out where in the constitution it states the POTUSA forfeits his or her right to free speech and to do so whenever or wherever they feel like it.
