Full disclosure, I don't own NFL paraphernalia and maybe watch three Lions games a year. So i can't play the "I'll never watch/buy again card."

However, given the strange hypocrisy and programming (no pun intended) I thought I would share some things that make me literally laugh out loud at over privileged athletes and their misguiding of soft minded people.


Kneeling is a basic human position where one or both knees touch the ground. It is used as a resting position, during childbirth and as an expression of reverence and submission. While kneeling, the angle between the legs can vary from zero to widely splayed out, flexibility permitting. It is common to kneel with one leg and squat with the other leg

Merriam-Webster Definition

to position the body so that one or both knees rest on the floor The prisoners were ordered to kneel. :to fall or rest on the knees She kneeled on the floor next to the child.

Interesting. Kneeling is an act of submission or subservience. Also, in monarchies, but I digress.

F.D.R. quote:

We, too, born to freedom, and believing in freedom, are willing to fight to maintain freedom. We, and all others who believe as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.

ā€œIt is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.ā€

ā€• Emiliano Zapata

Just some quick notations on not too distant past history on kneeling.

So, how is kneeling heroic? How is it anything opposite of cowardice, given the sources?

If kneeling is as cowardice as you claim, what does that say about those who are offended by it?

There's far, far more outrage about this than there was when Nazi's were heiling Hitler and brandishing swastikas in the great steeets of America.

There's really nothing more to be said. It's the new trend to hate on the Constitution and those exercising Constituional rights. I've never been the popular opinion, don't care to, but I never thought that exercising Constituional rights would cause this much "outrage," especially considering it lasted mere minutes.

(Yet here we are, and will be, days later, still whining about it)
