There's a reason that LIe is the first word in Liberal. Everything about the anthem protest issue is a lie. It is not about racial equality, whenever that is brought up it is in connection with BLM and the myth that blacks are racially targeted by police. Every statistic shows that they are not. The incidents that were taken as excuses for riots by BLM, were largely proven to be legitimate officer actions in response to a criminal act. There have been incidents against blacks, whites and Hispanics where the actions of the police were unnecessary, uncalled for and in some cases criminal, but that is a shared result among the larger percentages of the population.
Where these anthem protesters claim that it is not intended to protest the nation, what would be the purpose of protesting the national anthem if it is not intended to protest the nation? Kaepernick has been very clear about his feelings about the United States of America.
"I’ll continue to stand with the people who are being oppressed. To me, this is something that has to change, and when there’s significant change — and I feel like that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent, and this country is representing people the way it’s supposed to — I’ll stand."
Kaepernick lays it on the nation, not the cops, the whole nation, everyone in the stands, every government official and he will continue to besmirch the nation until he gets the nation the way he wants it to be, when he is satisfied. So, what does he want it to be? He wants it to be a communist country, because Kaepernick is a proud communist. Che Guevara, his hero, was a racist and a homophobe and only got cured of his racism when he became a communist and could use the racial issue to his advantage. Sound familiar?
The national anthem protests are not about race, they are not about equality they are just a tactic used by the collectivists. It's right out of the playbook.
The protests are not about free speech. That is another lie the liberals tell. No one has stopped or even threatened to stop the protests. If anything, the establishment (NFL and ownership) have enabled them, violating the rules of the NFL, which obviously stands for No Fidelity League. This is what happens when the establishment runs into collectivists, they run and hide, fearful of being labeled one thing or another. They were not afraid to sanction Tim Tebow for taking a knee for the Lord, however.
This is how bold they are. Imagine how bold they will be when they have destroyed a beloved sport for all those who thought they could sit this conflict out.
