Um may I remind you all, that the supreme court upheld the bakers rights to to NOT bake a cake. That is the precedent for 1st amendment rights, and private businesses.

No, the liberal argument supporting Facebook & Twitter is that they can ban anyone that they want because they're private businesses.

However, when Colin started the kneeling campaign the libs defended him, even though he was the employee of a private business doing something that his boss didn't like. Colin made his choice and got his pee-pee slapped while the libs cried "he should be able to express his first amendment rights at work" blah blah blah.

He believed in something and he sacrificed everything. Good for him. Maybe in 40 years he can run for Nancy Pelosi's seat when she finally retires.

But to whom were those comments that he has a right to express himself directed?

The people denouncing Kaepernick’s kneeling or the owners?

To my knowledge, letting Kaepernick go or passing him by were based solely on his skill rather than his politics. He was benched for a majority of the season for an injury and let go because of poor ability to play. True, the owners may have, as the OP and many others have claimed, blackballed him but the expression isn’t that he should be rehired despite his politics; but rather formally told the truth for why he isn’t being hired.

According to the NFL, I believe they’re saying Kaepernick STILL is being passed up due to his per performance.

And since the NFL have since allowed their athletes the ability to formally protest, the situation appears moot in regards to whether or not Kaepernick’s protests actually cost him his career.

In short, it didn’t.

It would be more equivalent if the meme compared whether Trump would still be allowed on Facebook if he hasn’t lost the 2020 election. Of, course that’s not true at all. Trump broke their terms of agreement while Kaepernick did not.

This meme is a false equivalency.

That’s ridiculous, if you say private business has the right to censor then you must be consistent. Anything else is hypocrisy.

Exactly my point, thank you.

Liberals never believed Kaperdick was fired for ability. They believed he was black balled and stated as much repeatedly. The inconsistency comes from saying that was wrong and then defending the same behavior from the social media. Similar to the same way the cake baker has been repeatedly sued for not making cakes for same sex weddings even though it’s his private business. Hypocrisy is a leftists calling card.

Where did I say they didn’t believe he was blackballed? I simply said that people who believe it are wrong.

Again, liberals aren’t demanding the NFL rehire Kaepernick. They can still be sore about his inability to be rehired just as conservatives can be sore about Trump being banned. The difference is Kaepernick isn’t suing the NFL for not rehiring him.

Trump is suing Twitter.

And like most of his legal battles, he’ll lose.

Because Trump is a perpetual loser.

Colin settled with the league out of court and got a hefty payday. He doesn't need to sue but it was headed that way.

You’re TDS is showing. If you are ok with censoring opposing voices and arguments you have a shallow understanding of freedom and the 1st amendment.

If you don't know the difference between censorship and the infringement of first amendment rights, then you are the one with a shallow understanding.

It is not TDS to state a fact that Trump is a perpetual loser. Don't get emotional on me.

You tds sufferers always make it about Trump to deflect the argument. Social media censorship is an infringement of 1st amendment rights. Using the first amendment to deny speech to others is a new leftist twist in the up is down, down is up world of confusion you seek to sow. You go along because you dislike the person affected and are unable to see it applied to someone different, as it has. Your TDS denies objectivity and if they used it to keep leftists from speaking you would be all over it hypocrite.

If you think Trump is the only candidate to beat Biden then you are the one lacking objectivity. And if Trump is nominated again in the primaries, he’ll most likely lose again. Trump has never won the popular vote. Never.

Biden will have to be worse than Trump for Trump to even have a chance and that is very unlikely. Any Republican candidate would’ve been better than Trump. That is what 2020 should’ve told you. Ignore that, and we’ll have four more years of Biden. Trump isn’t making a comeback. That is all these so-called TDS people are saying.

Try listening sometime.

See your projective TDS is acute.

“ If you think Trump is the only candidate to beat Biden then you are the one lacking objectivity. ”

Exactly where did I say anything about Trump being the Republican candidate. You have an illness get over it. Whoever runs against Biden will destroy him as he is not what was portrayed and is simple a puppet for the shadow progressive/Marxist government cabal that ensures “proper outcomes” in elections.

Where to start? I suppose you think that since you wrote a book there won't be a reply?

First, you are correct that it is essentially a moot point now that the owners have caved on kneeling. During the height of the controversy and the subsequent aftermath, all you would ever hear from the liberals was that Colin wasn't playing because he was being black balled.

The beginning, obviously. No, I'm not offended by people just responding to me. I realize some people are offended when that happens to them but why should I let something like that stop me from responding? I was actually kind of hoping someone would at least read what I wrote before assuming what I am saying and argue something that had nothing to do with it. I'm not talking about you, of course, but I won't name names, tho. ;)

Thank you for the concession that the point is moot on the kneeling front. That is very intellectually honest of you. Yes, that was the assumption that he was being black balled, however that doesn't mean liberals were right (as they are often wrong, too). Nor does it refute my claim that liberals weren't telling the NFL to rehire Kaepernick (as I do not know him personally, but I understand why people choose to write his first name as it is easier for them) or that he should play.

It was more, they wanted the NFL to shit or get off the pot. Either fire him or actually reprehend him or let him play. Don't pretend it's an injury, as they wrongly thought. However, if they were right that the NFL was still thinking about how to proceed and were, actually, black balling him (which would make the liberals right), well, contracts are tricky things. They're even trickier than a simple TOS as there are far more protections granted to the individual and the corporation while TOS are usually rather one-sided. I'm only guessing that Kaepernick did not technically violate any of those terms. So, they probably couldn't fire him if they even really wanted to and were just trying to cautiously figure out how to legally proceed. To my knowledge, none of the owners seemed upset by this and, probably quite enjoyed the controversy bringing national attention to the NFL.

Also, when he was called out for not standing, he began kneeling as a compromise. One that went thoroughly ignored by our side who would prefer people stand, as I do. However, unlike most people from our side, I didn't really think much of it. People are free to disrespect America, including it's own citizens, and I just respectfully disagree that Kaepernick was trying to do that.

I hope you do not find my "books" off-putting but I would think a politics section would be more about discussion rather than simply sports trash talking. If I wanted that, I would be in the sports memes. Which, ironically, I suspect are probably far more polite than the politics section of ImgFlip.
