    I am standing on what is right. Disrespecting the flag and the anthem is wrong

    You prove you care more about telling lies and disrespecting this country, than in telling the truth.
    Here you are. Once again you show your ignorance. You should listen to Rush instead of MSNBC and CNN

    It's not a lie. You just don't want to admit the obvious. Our country, more and more, is becoming a police state.

    Maybe people think that it's disrespectful of the flag because their look at me antics are during a ceremony that's supposed to be for honoring the flag and the men and women who served under it.

    It's hard to call something "antics" when they assuming a normal body position:

    • a playful trick or prank; caper.
    • a grotesque, fantastic, or ludicrous gesture, act, or posture.


    I get that people are bent out of shape about this, but unless one is among of those few people who actually stands at attention, remaining silent or singing the anthem, that person has little room to object. This is really about big black men having the temerity to bring attention to their collective mistreatment in a way that can't be ignored. If the people objecting to the protest did even one thing to acknowledge the reason for the protest, they would make their own case against flag-kneeingly much stronger. But they don't. That tells me it's really about controlling and silencing black men in one of the few places where white Americans need to see them.

    It actually can be ignored. Because the conversation is all about them with those issues only getting an occasional mention.
    Very few people get to use their jobs as a platform for their political opinions, particularly when that action drives away customers and damages the brand.

    Then shame on NFL fans for wanting to see black men beat each other up on Sunday afternoons but not caring about the abuse they suffer.

    Problem is they are racists and their claims are based on lies. They should be protesting Black on Black murders
