1. Standing to show respect for the flag.
2. Kneeling to show respect for what the flag stands for.

I'm going to have to select option two because without the meaning of what our flag stands for it's just another meaningless piece of cloth hanging on a pole.
My, what a sophomoric attempt at a rationalization. People who in their own words disrespect the country using an affirmative gesture of their contempt are actually the ones who understand it best. These so-called new patriots condition their allegiance based on crass identity politics turning out of many, one on its head.

We don't all have to agree on everything, but we do have to agree on something, we are one nation. It is a lesson the people disrespecting our national anthem and flag never bothered to learn.
