    Enough of a prejudice that you won't even bother ascertaining whether your assumptions about them are correct. You've passed judgment without hearing any evidence. Very American of you.

    The reason I don't care what they say is because they are morons who say they are protesting oppression but then turn around and support oppression.
    The problem with this incoherent rant that you don't even truly believe is that you're okay with brain damaged players who stand for the anthem.

    But I do appreciate your admission that your judgement is your judgement regardless of pertinent information. You're quite the deep thinker, Mac.

    Then don't watch anything before the kickoff. I never do.

    This seems like circular reasoning to me. You've decided they are morons before listening to anything they say, and you conflate the notion "oppression" with...well...honestly I don't know what you're talking about.

    Who's the moron, again? Seems like you just don't like political messages you disagree with and want to call a "moron" anyone who expresses a different opinion from your own. Very adult.

    And now plenty of people aren't watching at all.

    What's wrong with that picture?

    The reason I call them morons is not because they have a different opinion. It's because they act like disrespectful punks in expressing that opinion.

    Mr. Rasselas,

    My assumptions are correct as I have seen the evidence. What they are protesting has nothing to do with showing respect for our great country, ergo, they are anti-American scum.

    Would you rather violence in the street MacDuff? the beauty of free speech is just that, when people cannot express their rightful opinions, then democracy dies.

    Are you really calling for that?

    No, since nothing I said even comes close to that.

    I am expressing my rightful opinion. Why do you hate free speech?

    Nothing he's said indicates he's calling for violence in the street.

    Not at all, but I do take exception when the argument is not based in fact. At all.

    Muhammad Ali refused to go to Vietnam, and his words were much harsher than what you hear today.

    So I would say, the snowflakes on the right oughta take a deep breath, and listen, or better yet, understand the protest itself.

    There is no question that the number of police related violent acts are on the rise, the question is why? there is a discussion to be had here, the question is, whether one side is ready for it.

    I don't idolize humans, humans are flawed, cops are humans, and people who commit crimes are human, but then there are people who have not committed a crime, people who have been shot trying to protect themselves from flawed humans who are cops.

    I find the argument about kneeling during the anthem ridiculous; there are far more important things in this country to address; and one of those is clearing out law enforcement of those who do not uphold the law.

    What if he doesn't care what you think?

    Is that hating free speech?
