How many things are wrong with this?

-trump and pence took an honorable protest and turned it into a perverse dogwhistle for all of their minions 

-do we actually pledge allegiance to the national anthem, or did I miss something when I was growing up?

-has anyone else heard about the racial undertones of the anthem? 

FS Keyes got his rear kicked while in the military when an African American unit put a real whippin on the unit that Keyes was leading. He alluded to the inferiority of people of color in the second stanza

-their protests fall under allowable guidelines on protests, respectful 

-the protests had nothing to do with our military, therefore no disrespect. 

-who was harmed?

-isn’t that why we fight? to defend our rights, such as freedom of speech

-question of the day: how many dollars does it take to buy and silence the First Amendment?

-2nd question of the day: how many assaults on our rights and constitution are we willing to put up with from trump and his criminal fringe? We do not have a freedom of lying amendment.

Colin Kaeperniks "protest" was passive, quiet and personal.  In fact he changed his protest from sitting on the bench to kneeling under the advice of a military war veteran.  Then, it was passive, personal and respectful.  He wasn't bothering a soul until ignorant fascists began to whine.

 

For years many players have wanted to remain in the locker rooms until kick-off to relax, pray, meditate, focus and other personal reasons.  Now they can.  Kaepernick won a victory for all of them.  Now the fascists who don't care about anyones "liberty" other than their own will whine and complain and have to guess why a player is not out on the field....and knowing them like we do, 9 times out of 10 they'll guess wrong.  It'll be fun to witness.

How long it will be before the racist bleephole and all his other other scumbag racist degenerates try to eliminate the perfectly honorable option of remaining in the locker room during the playing of the anthem?

 

 


Frankly the flag has nothing to do with the disaster that this country is going through. Therefore, if they really want to protest about this Administration they should do it in the proper manner. and not mix the flag in their protest.
I would rather see them not showing up when the Anthem is playing to me that would and will have a visual effect that  will be a lot more appropriate and probably a lot more productive that blaming the flag for what is happening today.

The NFL will allow players to remain in the locker room during the national anthem. However, if they come out and protest the flag or anthem, their teams will get fined.

That is the new policy announced in a statement by Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday. It matches reports tweeted by ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter:

 

 

ESPN’s Seth Wickersham backed Schefter’s reporting:

    Gotta laught as the owners are cowering in a corner - now that the entire issue of how to treat / mistreat / harass the actual players who DARE to use their awesome power for something other that attempting to demolish any oppornet.   

     Those  owners refused to put on their big boy pants - so now the best that they can hope for is peer pressure.    Soon Donald will be calling for a new football leagure - all white.   Gee, he already tried that and it was an epic fail.

NFL Placates Fascist Racists

Message 7 of 7

So the fascist racists don't continually forget we have liberty in this country, the NFL changed their rule that requires all players be on the field during the National Anthem.

 

NFL teams will set will their own rules regarding players who want to kneel during the National Anthem, NFL team owners decided Wednesday in Atlanta.
 
There will also be an option for players to remain in the locker room while the anthem is played.
  
Instead of a league-wide rule, it will be up to each team to decide whether there would be discipline for a player protesting during the National Anthem.
 
Should a player protest on the sideline, the NFL can fine a team, but not the player.
 
Previously, there had been no rule that prevented players from protesting.
