Cowboys Fan Christie Praises Team's Protest Before Anthem

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall believes Colin Kaepernick is ready to go

I wish the president felt as strongly about the real meaning of freedom as he does about the material symbols of it. Because insisting that we all have to stand for the anthem completely negates the patriotism of those of us to choose to do so.

Those same NFL owners whose teams have all too conveniently decided not to hire now unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick, he of the original anthem kneel in August of 2016.

Ironically, the Confederate Flag still flies over race infields at many Southern tracks despite its links to white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups. He said he's just waiting for a call.

Either way, it's understandable. But these are divisive views. It's all just so natural and... You roar past the sound barrier.

Can we put that energy to better use? When the British declared a tax (noticing a pattern?) and regulations on tea, the Sons of Liberty commenced the Boston Tea Party in a slightly vandalous act of civil disobedience.

There's no shortage of opportunities.

At issue is whether the president has a right to dictate when and how private citizens can and should protest injustice. "We've just got to be positive about it". You can donate money, time, and energy to organizations national and local.

Midwest Jardinería: Flores todo el año
Crisantemos y asters son opciones tradicionales, y por buenas razones: Siempre se ven muy bien, ya sea en macetas o en el suelo. Sedums también entran en flor en el otoño, atrayendo las mariposas Monarca en su migración por encima del Medio Oeste a México.

"As the protestor, you have to find the courage to protest". Arm yourself with knowledge first. People practicing different religions all over the world use kneeling as their utmost form of reverence. I did not fight for a piece of fabric with red, white and blue printing on it. I did not fight for a piece of music. "When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir". "I mean, I understand that's showing unity". It's good to be suspicious of power.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."
Are the NFL fans racists?

Refuting the 'fake news' that he told the players to stand for the National Anthem or be fired, Jones tells The Fan, "I've asked the players for anything we might do". See here, here, and here.

"The most important thing for the NFL, the most important thing for everybody involved, is to leave the impression and the fact that you've not dishonored the flag" said Jones. Here's a list of ways you can help them. "He's made the ultimate sacrifice [as a player] and I respect that wholeheartedly".

By standing, we honor the fact that our country has had 45 presidents.

While many around the league believe that Kaepernick is more talented than several quarterbacks currently playing on Sundays, the former 49ers signal caller remains on the sideline with Week 4 of the 2017-18 regular season now on the immediate horizon. It makes me think about that famous Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. quote about light driving out darkness and love driving out hate. "Spreadability speaks to the capacity of social media, as a diffuse digital medium, to "[provide] a catalyst for reconceptualizing aspects of culture, [require] the rethinking of social relations, [and reimagine] cultural and political participation".
