Dark Knight, are you seriously trying to make a moral point based on a photoshopped picture showing something that never happened?

FFS some of you need to grow up

If you are unaware of the the contribution of black US service personnel in WW2 and the Vietnam War, high time to revise your white-washed version of history.

You are starting to parody yourself with this and cliche-ridden soliloquy.

Wholly christopher, looks like somebody actually didn't get the comparison with the dates, the kneel and the timing of the expression.

There is a time and place for personal beliefs and it aint in war or sports.

I'm betting we'll have another statue erected to memorialise such expressions only to be torn down at another time in history

Support for BLM has changed since 2016, a jump from 27% support to 55%, as opposed to now only 33% against.

Poll: Support for Black Lives Matter doubles since 2016

There’s now a majority of Americans who say they are OK with players kneeling for the anthem, 52% to 37%, a large change over the last two years:

Poll finds most Americans OK with players kneeling

Dre, who has said that everyone is offended by him taking a knee? Some are, some aren't. Not sure what tangent you're on. Stick to what you know. ABC hasn't prepared you for this conversation.

Kaepernick lost much more support wearing socks with emblems of pigs for cops and his wearing a Fidel Castro shirt. Even after that the nitwit sportswriters couldn't understand why the Miami Dolphins wouldn't touch him. You can also consider that a Dolphins Linebacker at the time was descendant of Cuban Exiles. I really enjoyed a SFO at MIA game where this LB tagged C.K. during the game for an eventual loss.

As for today? They can kneel all they want. And I won't be attending and have cancelled my plans for Dolphins season tickets. I look at the anthem and flag as something with a bloody history of both good and bad, but also as a symbol of hope that we can continue to evolve for the betterment of our citizens and an example for the world. I think of it as our house and although I might quarrel with family members inside, it's best not to burn it down which is exactly what most of these idiots want to do.

Thanks

The first sentence of my comment was utterly facetious and am genuinely surprised that this was not understood.

What do I really think? I think Lahren is a cheap, vacuous race-baiting slither. The sheer gall of usurping the courage of those involved over 70 years on to grandstand on patriotism is an absolute affront to the memories of those involved, nearly all of whom are dead

Is that a Federal law, a State law, a City law or just lomapaseo's law?

I see SCOTUS dissenters still frothing at the mouth about trans rights and bathrooms. The hard statistical reality is you are 5 times more likely to be sexually assaulted in a public bathroom by a Unites States Senator than a trans person. I fear he doth protest too much...

Actually, this USSC decision, and Gorsuch's writings in it, simply justifies Trump's selection of him to the Court. He obviously looked at the issue, evaluated what the law actually said, and rendered a decision. No pre-judging based on being a right-wing or left-wing justice. This is all we Conservatives want to see in the Supreme Court, even though at times, perhaps even this one, we might wish the decision had gone the other way.

The so-called Conservative judges have been demonstrating time and again that they will not be pigeoned-holed into their decision. Thomas is the only Conservative one whose vote is predictable. On the other hand, the Liberal judges have voted lock-step together on every important issue in the last few years. And of course, we can always predict the media's reactions.

This rally is all along Trump's attempt to tell the people the pandemic is over: "there are some embers and ash". I find it incredible that a President can willfully subject people to this danger, especially since infections in Oklahoma have been getting up in the last two weeks.

Look at the reality. Our health professionals said it's ok to scream, sweat and projectile spittle in massive protests everywhere in numbers massively outnumbering Trump's proposed rally and you profess concern about spreading Covid19? Over the US Memorial day weekend, the press and the health professionals went apoplectic over the sight of groups of people partying at a pool bar that were more distant than most any large BLM protest. I think there has been 1 or 2 Covid infections from people at the lake.

And you wonder why people start to ignore the slanted press and liberal health professionals.

Would you care to provide a source to "Our health professionals said it's ok to scream, sweat and projectile spittle in massive protests everywhere". Neither the CDC nor Dr. Fauci have ever uttered something like that. If Trump would call your post "Fake News"
You obviously don't see a difference between protesters who were (are) there for a cause and an egomaniac who doesn't care for people getting infected. As I said in my previous post, he is sticking his head in the sand, lying to as usual, practically negating that Corona is still there and even increasing in 18 States including Florida.

So Brakes, you seem to have taken it upon yourself to decide which "cause" is deserving of an exemption to your own rules.

As far as I and many others are concerned, it is far more important to the future of this country to prevent the Democrats from taking full control of the government, than it is to encourage rioting, destruction, and burning in the name of slogans.

The fact that you feel otherwise is of no concern to me.

Look it up yourself Brakes.
Some health group in the Colonies here said social protest was an excuse for large groups a few days after slapping any other gatherings, I think it was our national group.

FYI, I think both sides are idiotic with large groups. I won't be attending protests or denying the health risk at rallies. I will be supporting the full force of the law against those like that idiot MN cop as well as the near impossible job pf those good cops dealing with psychopath criminals without a conscience.

To what end?

Deficit spending - ooops!
Anti-authoritarianism - ooops!
The Wall - ooops!
Conservative justices - ooops!
Defeating an elite, governing or financial - ooops!
Protecting American Labor - ooops!

There is nothing the Dems would do that the GOP has not done in spades over the past 4 decades - and the past 3.5 years. The Dems just might do it a little more equitably, and with a little more sanity, however.

Both major parties incompetent? Time for you to become a Libertarian. Won’t ever win the big election, but at least I don’t have to claim either party either.

Oh come on. What bullshit. Why are you Republicans so scared? At least we aren't waving guns around to show how macho we are.
