Apparently the networks has solved this problem of sitting and kneeling by not giving these characters the national coverage they want.

 


And so you're complaining about this... why?

These players and liberals might be getting their way with the few players exercising their 'constitutional rights' to sit or kneel during the playing of the National Anthem.  But now they have infringed on our rights to hear it being played on our TVs at home before games.  

 

Now the networks will not broadcast it with the games.  Again, liberals infringe on rights of others for the sake of getting their way... 


Folks,

 

Can you believe that one is complaining that REAL PEOPLE are exercising their REAL CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and then they try to equate that with what a TV network chooses to air.

 

It is clear what the REAL MOTIVE is.

 

It is the minimization of the importance of a MINORITY'S expression of their FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS by comparing it to a network's decision to reduce the airtime connected with airing an NFL game.

 

It is amazing to what lengths some will go to create a subterfuge that confuses the REAL MOTIVE.

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!

That cat has been out of the bag for a long long time.

Lee Atwater described it in a famous/infamous interview in 1981 - the references can get a little obscure and veiled at times, but it's still the same as it's always been...

So - can you cite the Constitutional Clause delineating the Constitutional Right to hear the anthem on TV prior to a football game?

 

Can you cite a court decision stating that being able to hear the anthem on TV prior to a football game is a constitutional right?

 

Check the appropriate box...

Would you answer such a frivolous and ridiculous post?

Why is it that I expected comments like in the last two posts?  Of course no doubt at all that these are just the first of more comments like that.

 

Y'all have fun!!!
