Constitutional conservatives and libertarian's should all support Colin's message.



Here we have Dan Bongino who I listen to regularly. He is pretty good and offers a lot of information on various topics on his podcast. He's a hardline right winger pro Republican guy.

Empower Texas, a conservative group


While the grassroots may disagree on the means from time to time, the end goal of the conservative movement remains the same: put government in its proper size and role in order to ensure that individual liberty is maximized. That includes our state government, where we are doing pretty well in comparison to other states, but know we can do better.


I thought conservatives were about checking government power?

Now someone protest government police state tyranny (in Dan's own words) and suddenly the conservative's are against them?

Something isn't right here people stop falling for the brainwashing. Why are we trying to force people to worship our government with a national anthem #1 and #2 when did conservative's become pro government tyranny?

Not standing for the anthem is the antithesis to the US , its people , the Constitution , so on and so forth

I imagine they don’t support Kaepernick for the same reason we never see conservatives angry when Americans in the ghetto get shot for practicing their 2nd Amendment rights, which conservatives have as a main part of their platform.

They aren’t their demographic, so they don’t care. Today’s conservatives are only that in name.

And plus, Donald Trump told them it’s about the flag. So they believe that. Lmao.

Really? Because the only people offended are conservatives who ingest nothing but conservative news and social media. The rest of the country either doesn't care or has the ability to understand what he was kneeling for and it wasn't to offend America, the troops, or the people.

You should know a US military vet is the one who told him he should kneel out of respect and yet conservatives ignore that and cry, cry, cry that he's being sooo disrespectful, especially against the military. If kneeling triggers you then you should know there is no safe space big enough to ever protect you.

I support his right to kneel during the anthem, but I also respect people's rights to quit watching NFL games because it pisses them off.

And a large group of liberals lost their minds when someone wouldn't bake a gay cake. It's on both sides but will you call both sides out equally?

Power play to get in the public eye as he was failing and flailing as a pro quarterback.
Propaganda does not work on me
You should know that by now
Stop trying

Like Obama, Kaepernak's experiencing an identity crisis. He was raised by white adoptive parents and now he's trying to join a cause to find his black roots, which is fine, just find a more respectful way of doing it. Showing resentment towards America or it's flag, as they both have done, isn't the answer. They both carry deep resentments and they're using the wrong avenue to express themselves.

Yeah. That's exactly it. I wish both left and right had this mindset. It would make for a better country.

Democratic Socialists should be supporting whats-his-name.

Hell, the guy is enamored with Che Guevara.

He isn't "protesting government police state tyranny".

He just wants less cops, more crime and a bigger government.

Not exactly a typical Conservative stance.

I think you didn't think this OP through.

That, and he called Bongino "pro republican". Dan may be a republican, but he's also named "the Renegade republican" for a reason.

I think, like your party, that you are deeply out of touch with reality.

So, a single solitary vet speaks for the entire nation?

The stupid kneeling thing wasn't about Trump, although I understand why you have to bring the name up in... everything.

You need your dose of hate for the day.

Americans in the ghetto are not practicing their 2nd Amendment rights when they shoot each other. It's called murder, which isn't exactly in the Bill of Rights.

I understand why you don't understand it either.

You don't see conservatives angry about that because to us it's just the end results of Progressive policies. You know, the policies that make ghettos in the first place.

Cause and effect, and nothing we can do about it except keep it from spreading.
