....and protecting our right to the First Amendment, lawful protesting, free speech and disagreement

 

God bless our police that don't abuse their authority and protect the rights of all Americans equally..

Silly me.  And here I thought this is what REAL Christians thought sacrifice looked like:

And yet NONE of the several so-called Christians mentioned it.  Curious indeed!

@Soosie—Yup, we sure sacrificed a lot when an uneducated, ignorant minority put the fool trump in office—morality, honesty, humane treatment for all, equality and the embracing of diversity, respect for our premier criminal justice agencies, respect for the press, those of diverse opinion, respect and HONESTY with regard to our premier news agencies, as opposed to the propaganda sites trump and friends embrace.

What NIKE has done is stand up against the sacrifices Americans have suffered because of trump and acknowledged the inequality with regard to law enforcements treatment of African Americans.

ONCE AGAIN, The taking of the knee has NOTHING to do with patriotism or men who have died serving their country. It has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that African-American men are killed and/or injured by American police officers at an alarming rate. Body cams have shown that often the killings and or victimization are unjustified.

trump  twisted Kaepernick’s intent and that of others, which GOES RIGHT BACK TO AMERICA ‘S SACRIFICE OF AN HONEST, MORAL LEADER SHE SUFFERED when the ignorant gave inept, sociopathic, lying trump power.

YUP, because of trump, Americans have made many aforementioned sacrifices, but NONE OF THEM have anything to do with Kaepernick’s VERY MORAL STANCE WITH REGARD TO RACIAL INEQUITY. Hats off to Nike for standing up to truth and equal and humane treatment for all. 

A little knowledge goes a long way! 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president !

  Adding to the nonsense, what sort of lame brain would burn a perfectly good set of athletic shoes to protect?   Who are these same folks going to run up a campaign to not buy Nike brand apparel?    hint:  that is how it supposed to work, but oops Nike stock price is on the rise. 

   Instead this group of  lame-brains burn their own shoes in the name nonsense similar to the supposed christians burning the Koran.... roasting marshmallows, but on no political impact.

I guess you have given up on using real media for reference sources, even if they are fringe sources.

 

It looks like you are using anonymous contributors to Facebook and Twitter as your sole sources for TRUE, ACCURATE, AND AUTHENTIC information.

 

OMG!!!!!!

Maybe that's why Kaepernick and the other players are kneeling...thanking women like this for their slave conditions so Nike can pay them exorbitant sums to push their products?

I was at a BBQ on Sunday and was talking to a group of Conservatives who also happened to be veterans. They seemed to come to the conclusion that we should take away any services from homeless and "let them starve". It was a party so I refrained from pointing out what percentage of the homeless are veterans......morons.

Oh, those silly rascals at ABC News. Reporting what people are actually doing and not just what they want to see happening.  Perhaps they should take some lessons from Fox?

Trump Cult members don't get it. 

 

  • There are over 1,700 active players in the NFL
  • At the end of last season, I believe less than 10 were protesting. This isn't a crisis it's a manufactured crisis.
  • Those guys aren't doing it for themselves. They are millionaires who are trying to right an injustice. You don't have to agree with how they're protesting, but I admire them for caring.
  • They are not anti-America, they are using the national anthem to get attention for a cause

What does Comrade Trump do? He turns mini-protests (less than 10 out of more than 1,700) into a national crisis with his base.

 

Why didn't Trump's base get angry when Comrade Trump committed borderline Treason during his meeting with Vladmir? That's something worth getting angry over.

Are those the graves of soldiers or of unarmed black men gunned down by police officers?

The poor demented dears - here they go and torch their $150 footware, and after a slight dip, Nike stock hits an all-time high and stores report a record nimber of sold-out styles of Nike's. I may even overcome my reluctance to support the VietCong Vets who make the shoes and pick up a pair. Oh, stock settled back down to where its been trading for the last several months, so Trumpettes, your panty-bunching had the expected effect - it makes you walk funny.

 Maybe the explanation of Nike's rise in value of 6 billion since this topic was created is because these protesters are going back to buy new Nike gear.....

 

LOL!!!

And yet ... donating these things to homeless vets would make SO much more sense, and actually help the people these yahoos claim to care about.

I guess you would agree that the BURNING OF BOOKS of those you don't agree with is also a valid image of a form of protest.

What does that have to do with burning NIKE shoes?  There is no comparison of burning NIKE shoes with the Germans burning books.  407,300 Americans died in Europe during the Second World War to stop Nazism.  So how many Americans do you think will die because of burning NIKE shoes?

 

Those 407,300 Americans died to avenge such actions you attempted to bring up by comparing burning NIKE shoes.  What is the comparison.

Sounds like you are degrading their sacrifice?  Making their deaths political?  Typical for a liberal.
