The point of taking a knee during the anthem is not to be disrespectful but to protest the inequal treatment of blacks in Ameria.  Until you adress this issue, I really don't care how you feel about taking a knee.

Nazis, KKK, Antifa, BLM are not friends to conservatives

That is true and when the left tries to say they are it shows they can not be taken seriously. They continue to post lies ... but why? Who do they think they are going to believe them except people in their group that cheer when they lie with kudos.

Absolutely correct, afisher!

 

I note that most here that are "up and arms" over NFL players "taking a knee" during the National Anthem are the same posters who claim there is too much political correctness and many loved trump because he wasn't political correct (haven't we all seen THAT, from dissing a Gold Star family, dissing a US War Hero, dissing women across the globe, etc.)  But this hula-balu about the flag is nothing more than "political correctness" towards an inanimate object.  It appears that being disrespectful to another human is just OK with many Conservatives, but don'y you disrespect what I treasure.  Again, more hypocrisy from the Right.

Au contraire. I can clearly see the faux patriotism in your posts.  But thanks for your concern....ignation is sickening to many.

 

Humans can pray without a crucifix; and they can be patriotic without a flag, without a song or even  kneeling.  The rightous indignation is pathetic!

 

 

"....or at least, I THINK I do...."


All true, but not what is under discussion. We are talking about respect for the flag that is present and being honored by the playing of the national anthem.  Yet you were silent on the respect for the flag the KKK and Nazi's and your boyz in the Alt-Right at Charlottesville.  Just more faux outrage and Conservative hypocracy.

 

Btw....not everyone believes in respecting the flag in the same way.  In fact, this hat:

 

Donald Trump Make America Great Again Flag Hat

 

is in violation of the US Flag Code.  Have you complained?

 

It is Chapter 1 of Title 4 of the United States Code (4 U.S.C. § 1 et seq). This is a U.S. federal law, but the penalty described in Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C. § 700) for failure to comply with it is not enforced.

Chas, once again we see another Conservative demonstrate a lack of understanding of much of anything related to the human race. Above he suggests a poster commented through a "divisive racial prism"; yet nothing of what you posted suggested such.  He's either lying or thinks everytime he see's the word white or black there's a "divisive racial prism",  It's truly quite telling.  Sounds like some just can't "shake it".

I prefer the sound judgement of General Michael Hayden - a 39 year military veteran, CIA Director and National Security Agency Director rather than the warped and twisted irrationality of trump and his coterie of fringe right wing crackpots and racist extremists - and instead concur with General Michael Hayden - and what he wrote...

 

"As a 39-year military veteran, I think I know something about the flag, the anthem, patriotism, and I think I know why we fight. It's not to allow the president to divide us by wrapping himself in the national banner. I never imagined myself saying this before Friday, but if now forced to choose in this dispute, put me down with Kaepernick".
