Yeah,

 

I remember those good old days when White people used to tell Black People, especially well known Black people, that "protesting" wouldn't do the "race issue" any good.

 

Let's see, who were those White people that said that......................???????

 

David Duke, Lestor Maddox, George Wallace, Strom Thurmond..... see a pattern there yet??????


Gee, doesn't this Right Wing poster keep good company ????

 


Sure looks that way - and no surprise - they are still saying that bringing public notice to as yet unresolved problems that are due to white racism, white bias and racial inequality is just "making things worse" - and sure enough - it is making things worse - for whites with biased viewpoints - in the opinions of those less biased people - the majority of people in the US and in the world...

Who posted anything that indicated they did not think he had First Amendment Rights like every other American?


So then what's the big hu-hu from the right?

 

I'd think that right wingers would be pleased, and would enthusiastically support Kapernick's exercise of his constitutional rights, and question why so many cops aren't being charged for acts that would put any citizen in deep legal jeopardy...

After all, they could easily be next in line for being treated with excessive violence merely for responding to the officer that they had not violated any traffic laws, and question the validity of the stop.

Badges don't grant extra rights or negate criminal laws, do they?

 

Right now Kapernick jerseys are selling in number one position.

 

That's a subtle hint of what the majority of American citizens believe is right and what they believe is wrong.

Well good. I am glad that is settled.  He had the right to do it, it was not an illegal act, it seems to have been a very effective protest as it brought attention to the problem.  Some people did not like it but the more they "like", '"unlike", or post about it, the more it accomplishes his goal. 

 

Win-Win. 


Rich, you bring up a good point.  The only time I have ever seen anything about someone attempting to "LIMIT" Americans' First amendment rights was a sign placed by the Federal Government.  Of course it was quickly challenged and was removed.  Imagine that...

So, Colin is just exercising his constitutional rights , yet the police are using "Strong arm tactics (pouring coal on the fire) with their peaceful protest?? Hmmmm, sure seems like a typical left wing double standard.
================================================

So typical of the people that want to condone what Colin Kaepernick has done and why.



Another response showing that the Right Wing is Constitutional challenged and does not understand that Kaepernick is within his Constitutional rights to protest in the way that he is. 

 

The Right Wing is also challenged in understanding the duties of a police department/agency. A public police department is wrong boycotting police protection. Individual police have the right to personally protest, but not on duty, and not an entire police department shirking their duties in the guise of legitimate protest.
