See where Tim Tebow is now?  Where is he?  Found refuge in professional baseball instead of football.


He wasnt that good in the NFL. Menatlly, he had it. but it takes some physical attrubutes too. Do a bit of researh to see what you find.

 

So it begins.

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... 


Would you point out where in the US Constitution is the right for you to hear the National Anthem on your TV before a sporting event? If it is that important to you why don't you get a recording of it and listen to it yourself.

Of course it does to you.  Liberals have no problem respecting the rights of others as long as they get their narrow minded way of forcing their opinions on others.  Thanks for asking (sarcasm).

 

Part of the 'me' generation wanting their way disregarding others, thinking their rights override those of others.  It hasn't changed since decades ago when a kid told me that I have no rights but others do.


The Me Generation? "wanting their way disregarding others, thinking their rights override those of others."

 

Is that how you refer to conservatives who support the 1st Amendment as long as they approve of the speech and the color of the protester's skin? Interesting.

Cool story, bro. Got another?

I'm waiting for the cartoons showing how Trump disrespected the military when a war hero died by briefly flying the flag at half staff, raising it again the next morning, then having to lower it again because of the bad polls.

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.


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 .......... you have "a right" to hear the national anthem before games? Can you show that to be true by referencing the Constitution?

 

Doesn't all individual pro sports "have the right" to decide if they play the national anthem before each game? Do the networks have the right to decide if they broadcast the national anthem? So do you as a 'conservative' want to take away the rights of pro sports (or the networks) to decide for themselves whether or not they play the national anthem?

 

Saying that "liberals infringe on rights of others" seems narrow minded to me.
