So, you can move the goal posts to suit your needs now. Amazing. And you wonder why Trump won.

On top of the fact politicans on both sides are corrupt. But you chose to call out right wing.

In addition, Kap didn't have this mindset until he started dating a BLM leader. Have you ever stopped to think he's maybe being used for an agenda?


What Democrat politicians are there in the White House to call out?

And here is where you lose. Partisan blinders will be your downfall.

Pelosi to name one. And I'll go even further. I call for term limits and removal of the lifetime paycheck and medical coverage. Both Dem and Reps.

Oh but wait. This is the internet. I'm lying again. Ok ok. You got me. I confess. Im actually Maxine Waters. Bet you didn't know I was a closet conservative.

I agree that Lebron did it the right way, and no love lost. I fully support his school and it will obviously have a greater impact than shi#ting on our national anthem and disrespecting our country and those who have served to give us our freedoms. Black peopele, red people, and white people. If you have to play the petty race card at all.

Also, as many have already stated, black on black crime is the most prevalent and has the greatest impact...

Have you ever seen an American servicemen's coffin draped with a flag ? Do you know the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner ?


What is the song about ?


What does any of that have to do with police brutality? Again, he wasn’t protesting the flag. Or soldiers. I can understand being angry at Kaepernick if you didn’t agree with his stance on police brutality, that would make sense given the reasons he’s taking a knee.

But it makes zero sense to be angry at him over something that isn’t real, like the idea that he’s protesting the flag and people that died for it. That isn’t what this is or the intention of it, so it seems strange to me when people get angry at that.

I’m just trying to figure out the reasoning.

How easily we forget ...


"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."


But please keep telling us how he's not taking a dump on the whole country.

You got me.


Still, I don’t see that as taking a dump on the whole country at all. Taken in the larger context of what he was saying clearly that flag represents something different to him than it does to you. Symbols are like that.

Remember, not everyone is going to think like you. And shouldn’t be expected to. (Paraphrasing your words)

Nike could make a CK line and charge $450 per shoe and there be a line of people willing to by them , just to be cool.

Providing license ,registration and proof of insurance if you've nothing wrong can't really be considered a plight.

I completely support him kneeling, it’s his right to do so. that being said I think his cause is idiotic and flawed.

Kaepernick‘S message is to virtue-signal for money, views, and to remain relevant. He has not helped a single person. He has only taught people to virtue-signal. Meanwhile, someone as daft as Kim Kardashian can work to correct injustices and work towards prison reform without showing off and making huge PR deals.

No, no one should support Kaepernick, but real work and results.

I support him being drafted into the Marines


We don't want him.

And I'd rather not see anyone drafted. It's bad enough dealing with the dirtbags we have. I don't want to have to deal with dirtbags who didn't want to be here in the first place.

And now you understand why his protest backfired.

He chose a symbol to protest that means something to a large majority of the country that I guess it doesn't mean to him and now everyone is choosing to try to ignore what it means to those of us who are very offended.

Once Kapernick made this a race issue, I lost all respect for him and his fellow kneelers cause. Police brutality is a major issue for everyone, not only black people. The disgusting part is the double standard of Kaepernick & leftists in general. He accepts millions of dollars from Nike which profits from the abuse of children through child slave labor practices, while claining to be against the abuse of black people. Same with the leftist support of the communist pope & catholic church. One can't claim to be against the abuse of children & abuse them at the same time. Or claim to want to help minority children, while being pro-abortion. Or claim to want to protect students & be anti-gun or promote the adulteration of children by teaching them about anal sex at a young age & have stories read to young children by drag queens. If leftists didn't have double standards, they would have no standards at all. Don't #WalkAway #RunAway.

Why would they support someone who says their intent is to disrespect the flag because America is racist?

I can actually see your point there. I get that and agree with you.

I do think the overall issue is challenging a government that's abusing it's authority. That's a conservative point of view.

He said the country oppresses black people. Not some people, the whole country.

it's not about that at all. It's about America is racist and the flag is a symbol of oppression. That's his belief.

America is not racist. Its one a few countries, where everyone has equal rights & it helped spread the idea of equal rights & Judeo-Christian values throughout the world. Too many are brainwashed by the leftist racism narrative. Stop pretending you are victims in the freeist nation on the planet.
