Numerous studies have shown the RWNJs would reject 8 out of 10 points in the Bill of Rights, and their attacks on peaceful protest of a situation that we SHOULD have gotten past 100 years ago proves those studies were right.

 

Instead of worrying about how a football game begins, how about we give some more attention to how black lives END at the hands of those sworn to serve and protect ALL citizens!


Both the British Crown's refusal to hear and consider grievances and the right wing attitude toward persons registering dissatisfaction with obvious inequities are virtually identical.

 

Common with those who are in the wrong...

Kaepernick is a "hero". How many of the gutless, who sit behind the anonymity of their keyboards to attack a non-violent protest, would risk what he risked to stand up for what they believe as right.

right winger...1789...ACLU..fifth amendment & out of court settlement

chip..yes a very big chip


Indeed - one that is historically sound - Constitutionally valid - American - Patriotic - and not in any respect reeking of the kind of irrational and deplorable basket "thinking" that incorrectly and quite unconstitutionally insists that peaceful demonstration - up to and including burning of the flag should not be permitted when in fact it is allowed - and a thoroughly Constitutional exercise of Patriotic Dissent of wrongs being committed by white cops murdering unarmed black Citizens.

So you cannot logiclly a rationally debate or defend your point so you restort to personally attacking Alferpacker?  Doesn't surprise me in the least, it's what Right Wingers do daily here.

 

Please explain why you think the the 49ers organization should punish Kaepernick for exercising his Constitutional right to peacefully protest ?????

 

If an employer prohibited you from exercising any of your constitutional rights would you think that to be OK ?????

 

You don't have to answer, I'm used to Right Wingers (you) not answering me because the questions I ask are difficult for them to answer without incriminating their selves.  The truth hurts sometimes.


I agree, Chas.  Must be another of those "in the basket".  White Conservatives who support others (like Trump) who personally attack another simply because they have a different view are indeed, "deplorable". Are we sure it's "only" 50%.
