RK was wrong again when he said, "But it started under Barack H Obama, so much for that theory."

 

NO! Only a small handful of players were protesting until Friday. After Trump insulted those who were peacefully protesting, the entire league, including many owners, are now protesting because of Donald Trump.

Not sure if you are talking about my post but I love that picture. So true, So true.  Is that Fake Outrage I smell?

 

Naw, he just posts to whomever may be listening in hopes SOMEONE will respond.  Rather shallow IMO.

Certainly something to strive for. But were they sincere, they would be asking THEIR government to do something about the slaughter of black people by other blacks in major cities. Since they don't, there must be something else concerning them. Possibly related to Kaepernick's Castro t-shirt.

 

By your crude "buttcheek" comment I assume you are referring to President Trump. If so, have the instances of THEIR government shooting innocent black people increased in the last nine months. If not, once again, there must be another agenda in play here.


No other agenda - kneeling and respectfully requesting that the Deity remove the abomination that is damaging the nation and world always comes first.

It would appear we do not teach basic civics in our schools based of the lack of understanding we see by our citizens today.

 

Is that subject lost forever?  How should we seniors set an example for young people today?

 

 

 


civics and US  history were the victims of your partys budget cuts.

I remember 9th grade civics very well, and i was a poor student..and my teacher was strict. I learned that protest against the govt  is as american as apple pie. Nothing changes without direct action.  Sam Adams was a drunk and the sons of liberty met in taverns. Oh my what the elite brits thought of them.

So it begins.

Really?? I was raised that it was stand up straight, take your hat off and put your hand over your heart. Where did you learn the kneeling thing??


I was as well but this is a protest and you do things differently to let people know you are not in agreement with something. If it shocks you, then mission accomplished.  However, just because they are not paying homage to the anthem the way YOU want them to, does not mean they are being disrespectful to anyone other than Donald J Trump. 


But it started under Barack H Obama, so much for that theory.

 

And - "protest" - what are they protesting??
