Do these complainants know or understand how close we are to flying their precious flag up side down as a symbol of distress??? Is this what it's going to take for them to Get Woke??? Wakey Wakey.

Where would they put their hats or hands if the flag suddenly turned upside down?

I don't need a lecture on patriotism from draft dodger Donald Trump. And no one who cares about patriotism would ever vote for a draft dodger.

I thought Juniorbush lowered the bar to the floor so Drumpf Inc. must be crawling out from the woodwork. I thought this cockroach post fit here.

Quote C3: The NFL "protests" carried little weight with the general public because the players are making huge money to play a game.

Its not a game when 110 out of 111 have brain damage from multiple concussions showing up in autopsy's. Drumpf is just hammering nails in the coffin. As for the "public", those who know or have heard of the Constitution, know why the protest are happening and those freak goper ass kisser Chihuahuas repeat what trumpf utters. Whatever it is.

American Flag - History
This design of the flag got official status in the Flag Resolution of 1777. This resolution was passed by the Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The resolution stated: "Resolved, That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation." Hence, the first American flag design comprised of thirteen alternating red and white stripes with a circle of thirteen stars representing the thirteen colonies on a bed of hemp, the material the first American flag was made out of. The circle of stars was borne on a blue canton. (Thus the answer to the question 'how many stars were on the first American flag?', is thirteen).

Why Fan Reaction to NFL National Anthem Protests
Is About Racism, Not Patriotism

"Those who exercise the right to peacefully express themselves should not be demonized or ostracized," said Basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan.

Quote C3:They are entertainers

They are citizens.
We're not talking about orange clowns in the white house.

Is Flag Burning Illegal?
Flag burning is not illegal in the United States. The Supreme Court of the United States in its decision from 1969 has ruled that the burning of the flag is protected by the First Amendment. However, the person who burnt the flag can be found guilty of a misdemeanor for starting a fire without a permit.

Burning the flag is one of the approved
ways to destroy a too worn or torn flag.

Quote C3:And most would agree that the players have a right to protest.

Doesn't matter how many agree or not he HAS the right to protest. That's basic Civics жопа.

Эй, тупица, Кто был Микки Мантл?

Quote C3:But yet, they are protesting bla bla bla and bla bla millions.

This is where you and drumpf sound like foreign trolls ignorant of the Constitution. No one is protesting flags or the country that gives them the right to burn the damn flag if they wish. Its the Un-American acts staining the flag you and your little alt reich Chihuahuas don't get.

When the police abuse citizens rights they are Pigs and deserve to be not only protested but prosecuted. Kneeling down during the Nationalist racist Anthem is a right the same as not standing if you're a fan. Now its getting daylight you better go hide in the dark and take a break from sucking the blood out of the country.

Mr. Average Joe from Kokomo does not understand this disconnect.

And DeVoid has only been Ed Sec less than a year. Dumbed down Americans are no reason to give up your rights to state a grievance. I bet you love the word behave. I just can't respect Americans without spines too afraid to speak out for injustice and worse when they hide from it or even worse when they condemn the forefathers for writing them down so people could see for themselves. Again you represent worse side of white trash scum to me. If that is okay with you then keep posting тролль.

Its the same reason bla bla bla in their lifetimes.

Only Denialists, and thats in the instruction book Chihuahua. It has nothing do do with it. They have a larger platform, the greater the celebrity's fan base. They can reach more people with the truth than listening to proven liars and propagandists and Chihuahuas. The same as your orange hero neglecting suffering Americans while he has pep rallies selling his grunts lemons.

Or half dozen or so of his cronnies using military jets for personal use. Pricetag stripping services spending a million tax dollars joy riding jets after sabotaging the A.C.A. cutting staff and mandates to drive cost up. Regardless of American lives. Same as Big Guvmint ineptness in Puerto Rico. Face it preppy, you're so obedient you'd walk off a cliff with your family if the party said too. As I've told you several times. None of this will make sense to you until you learn right from wrong, as you should have learned in kindergarten. When your mother kept you in the broom closet hitting you on the head with a bible.

I think Mr. Average Joe from Kokomo would defend their right to protest,

Again for a popularity contest maybe but citizens rights are non negotiable and definitely not dependent on Joe Klanman's misinformed opinion.

I met two of the writers of the song Kokomo, from the M&Ps and there are not many average joe bigots in Kokomo or the Keys except those wearing badges and tourists passing through or lost. Or maybe Indiana, home of pince, and why would anyone take their or his opinion seriously? Gary is one of the deadliest towns in America due to pollution. Come on dude, their favorite sport is watching people drive in circles for 500 miles. The only logical reason people would vote for him is they're dizzy from watching it. Plus Koch and the Fortune 700 Club buying his governorship. Now in line to burn gays on the cross.

Oh Kokomo. Buzzing around in me lil jon boat. Rescued a steel drum for a musician ripped off by a street urchin hooked on George Bush's crack. First time I saw the Beach Boys was at the 71 May Day Antiwar Demonstrations. Another time people sided with plastic over people. I never dodged the draft, I won the lottery. Drumpfy and Cheney bought deferments for a sore foot or something. Several times.

but not by showing bla bla bla of dollars.

Again that is propaganda swift boat style, diversion from the actual act just to toss some joe blow nonsense into the post. As any two bit troll would do. Even trump learned it. Same words from drumpf and his very obedient Chihuahua sara huckleberry. It isn't comprehensible why anyone would defend abuse of citizens because of the salary of other citizens thinking it is a disgusting act perpetrated by the government governing, or in this case not governing the enforcement of the Constitution.

What am I thinking, the same base has no civil or human rights in their vocabulary. Anti-American sheep aborting pre-babies shutting down pre-natal services, deregulating OSHA safeguards, EPA safeguards and even Food safeguards. From fast tracked drugs deregulating the FDA and revolving doors with Fat Pharma. Big Ag poisons not used on growing Hemp, the authentic flag of the US long before the racist Nationalist Anthem. Pro lifers shooting doctors in church and blowing up pregnant women in clinics. Then in another trippy delusion to somehow believe from the armchair chickenhawks, that soldiers go through hell, get shot and neglected and blown up over a piece of plastic made in China from crude oil sold by the same people shooting at them. No matter what lame ass opinion from drumpfy dumpty. hateful hicks or huckleberry.

Personally I think pissing on a flag while the Jimi Hendrix version of the anthem played would make a louder statement and drive more trolls out of their holes. So we can highlight them as Anti Americans instigating and protecting domestic terrorism on private citizens like Colin Kaepernick.

One by one. Shame them out of Congress with their greatest fear, Literate Constituents. We're gonna sneak in and teach teens how to read. While their parents are dancing around a burning cross and then time sobering up. Another paradox? Its okay to burn or wear a cross. You can only wear new flags draped over yourself, naked, while clutching the bible, and then burn one that's old and tattered. Then pissing on it while the Jimi Hendrix version of the anthem plays. In that way it wouldn't get the GOPerverts all exited about exposing another of their god's creations they're ashamed of. OH I get it, compensation = big guns eh?

Bottom line is trumps base are the first to get hit by trump sabotaging healthcare and the infrastructure, emergency services and basic democracy. While his spineless gang of punks slither behind his every twat. Being the poorest and most run down, ripped off and illiterate. Whereas real civilized Americans having local programs for the poor also have programs to weed out backward thinking cops abusing citizens. Those gopers seem to think in some far off distant galaxy represents the flag or country.

Trumpkof is a brillant conceptual artist. One night after finishing the left over dessert from dinner (the best chocolate cake in the world!) he found he'd won an election of some sort. Trying figure out why this would happen he put his most hugely powerful brain to work going over all his master pieces of art that may account for how this out of the blue thing could have happened. Surely not those steaks, they weren't that good. The colleges maybe? Nah, I barely broke even on that, (though I still think that was a great great piece of art) so I may try showing that again but it couldn't be that, just not popular enough yet. Hotels? thinking to himself, could it be kitsch is more popular than he assumed? So he noted that tidbit so's not to forget but somehow it just didn't feel like the right answer. What could it be, what could it be? It couldn't possiblely be that throw away piece I did a couple years ago could it? Hmmm, what was it? Oh yeh something with the word apprentice in it. Having mused on it awhile he thought, yep that was it with perhaps with a bit more kitsch thrown in this time to cover the bases.

Feeing a little more light hearted now because he was after all a bit low having hit some kind of creative block of late so he stepped into his next master piece with a lively bounce and on starting he thought they want reality show? I'll give them a reality show they'll never forget. Even their grand children will remember me and their great great grand children will study this as my master piece above all my others! Probably even beyond!

What a genius.

Time is coming up for flying the stars and stripes at half mast to commemorate the anniversary of America's experiment with Russian Roulette--our Dipshit-in-Chief.

Actually, you don't have to wait until November. By November flying it upside down might be spot on. Go Mueller!

Taking A Knee Isn't About Abstract 'Unity'
It's about Racial Justice!

As NFL owners join these protests,
it’s critical to not let Colin Kaepernick’s message get lost.

Our players wanted to make a statement about unity and we wanted to make a statement about equality. They were very much aware that statement, when made or when attempted to be made in and a part of the recognition of our flag, cannot only lead to criticism but also controversy. It was real easy for everybody in our organization to see that the message of unity, the message of equality was getting, if you will, pushed aside or diminished by the controversy. We even had the circumstances that it was being made into a controversy.
~ Jerry Jones

This incomprehensible word salad aside, there is something valuable, something we should not casually dismiss, about a how of “unity” from people in the NFL in the face of Donald Trump’s grotesque bullying and transparent racism. But Jones’s Hallmark-card blather as well as the NFL’s incoherent “unity” commercial that aired during the Sunday-night game are a stark reminder that these league-backed protests had nothing to do with the original intent of anthem protests.

This is what it’s about. It started because the killings of people like Alton Sterling and Philando Castile last summer were intolerable for anyone with a conscience. Protesting during the anthem was about highlighting that gap between what we are told the flag represents and the lived experience of too many people. Or as Kaepernick himself said a year ago, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color…. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” continued @

Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee
By ERIC REID September 25, 2017

In early 2016, I began paying attention to reports about the incredible number of unarmed black people being killed by the police. The posts on social media deeply disturbed me, but one in particular brought me to tears: the killing of Alton Sterling in my hometown Baton Rouge, La. This could have happened to any of my family members who still live in the area. I felt furious, hurt and hopeless. I wanted to do something, but didn’t know what or how to do it. All I knew for sure is that I wanted it to be as respectful as possible.

A few weeks later, during preseason, my teammate Colin Kaepernick chose to sit on the bench during the national anthem to protest police brutality. To be honest, I didn’t notice at the time, and neither did the news media. It wasn’t until after our third preseason game on Aug. 26, 2016, that his protest gained national attention, and the backlash against him began.

That’s when my faith moved me to take action. I looked to James 2:17, which states, “Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” I knew I needed to stand up for what is right. continued @

Just as with the obvious lie that 'we're are spreading democracy abroad', racial justice is entirely at odds with the america is exceptional dream.

"I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action”; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a “more convenient season.” quote MLK from the Birmingham prison 1963

I suspect that if people understood, I mean truely understood what that flag stands for I (at least would) like to think far far few people would be saluting it's foul tasting benefits they've stuffed themselves on.

There is no question that the players have the right to protest. But should they? Is there perhaps a better venue? Do they really think that they are "winning hearts and minds" over to their cause?

Its hard for Average Joe in Kokomo to take anyone seriously who makes millions of dollars, and then protests the system that allows them to make those millions.
