Real Americans fought the Nazis. Real Americans fought the confederate army. Many real Americans died. You cannot complain about peaceful protest with garbage like these people that are spitting on the memory of those brave Americans.

Am I The Only One Around Here Meme | I DISAPPROVE OF WHAT YOU SAY BUT I WILL DEFEND TO THE DEATH YOUR RIGHT TO SAY IT | image tagged in memes,am i the only one around here | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I think we're not too far apart actually.

Gee, if I'm an NFL player making millions of dollars, shouldn't I be doing something more substantial than kneeling during the anthem?

And yes, I CAN complain about these "peaceful protesters" because that is MY First Amendment right.

In other words, just because I'm against kneeling during the anthem DOES NOT mean that I'm pro-Nazi, KKK, or racist.

One group is trying to change society for the better using peaceful means, the other group wants to destroy society by violence. We saw peaceful means used in the past, such as Ghandi's struggle to free India from British rule, and we've seen how hate groups tend to push destruction of society.

Yes, you can complain, but remember, you are complaining because a group of men that have the national spotlight are practicing their first amendment right. It's not anything new. When the Dixie Chicks spoke out against invading Iraq, protests lead to a drop in record sales and concerts being canceled. Imagine if the same tactics were used against the NFL. The league has chosen to support these peaceful protestors, as they break no law. They are a business. When Smith and Carlos were awarded their medals, they stood for the national anthem. Said not a word, being quite respectful, but raised their hands in the black power salute. We saw how what that got them.

Really, the best thing is to make this a country where such protestors and protests are not needed.

Again, not too far apart. As Monty Python once said "I'm not arguing".

Agree totally with your last paragraph.

Also agree that Olympic athletes have lost medals. Colin Kaepernick claims to have lost his job playing in the league because of his stance. I have no pity for any of them...if there's no potential downside to a person making a stand for something then they're not "heroic" or "leaders".

Watch South Park from last season, they really did a good take on this whole thing a full year before it got this crazy.

There are no definable, measurable goals for us to debate and pound out so get to "yes" for the protestor. So, this is a never ending "protest". King had defined goals. Congress took some of those those up in the 1964 civil rights act, and others in Fair Housing Act of 1968, etc.
