I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I have decided that I am really frigging peeved off about this #TakeAKnee movement stuff!!!
Are you freaking kidding me? Give me a break. If you ask me, these athletes should stick to sports! That’s their profession, after all, and that’s all that they know and should care about! That is, however, unless they agree with me politically. If that’s the case, I think they should be MORE vocal. Which is why I fail to see the irony in President Trump spending four days to comment on the NFL instead of other issues that might demand the government’s attention, like hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico (A U.S. territory).
I work in computer repair and very rarely do I ever talk about that. In fact, I almost always talk about stuff like this. But sports players should not be able to do that, for some reason that I made up in my head!
Look, you may be saying my ideology is flawed and that I’m a hypocrite or whatever. But don’t worry about that though! I just believe that this is a FREE COUNTRY where we have the freedom to do WHATEVER WE WANT as long as it follows in line with exactly what I believe! Also, it should be ILLEGAL to protest.
Do NOT disrespect the American flag! What it symbolizes though, THAT you can disrespect.
Those NFL players should be FIRED. I believe this country was built on the principles of freedom and liberty, yet I also demand that its citizens (who have guaranteed rights to freedom of speech, religion, and you name it) blindly display patriotism as a requirement for employment or even citizenship.
But hey, if you don’t like it, and if you don’t like President Trump, you can just get out. Also, do not ask me how I felt about President Obama.
Do NOT disrespect the American flag! What it symbolizes though, like freedom of speech and freedom to protest for instance, THAT you can disrespect. I welcome that with open arms. That’s why I hang the confederate flag, the flag the other army carried into battle during the Civil War.
Every time you kneel during the anthem, you disrespect the troops. This is because The Flag = Military ONLY. The flag does not represent you or your concerns as a private citizen. I don’t know why I think this way and I won’t listen to why it’s wrong.
All I ask, and this is simple, that if you want to protest, do it in a way that I won’t see and that won’t gain any attention at all. If you want to take a knee during the national anthem in the privacy of your home to prove a point about police brutality that’s fine.
Just don’t let me know about it.
