These same idiots went to England to perform and knelt during our anthem and flag raising, and stood for England's. Then claim it''s not about the country.,
You can love your country and hate what it does.

Different subject, but I think you are giving these idiots way too much credit.

Look, I'm from an era where guys tore up an American flag for grease rags for their motor cycle in protest of the Vietnam war. It made me sick to my stomach, but protest is not new to me.
I have witnessed and been alerted to backs mistreatment by the good ol boy cops off and on for many years.
I defend the right these men have to protest whatever.
Green kool aid if that makes you happy.

Salty, I've never said they don't have the right to protest. They do. The Vietnam protesters were at least protesting government actions by tearing up government symbols. I was in the army at the start of the Vietnam war. I was defending both the kneelers and the Vietnam protesters rights.

You want to protest something cop, kneel facing the nearest cop. You might make an actual point and gain my respect.

the knee taking is such a dignified and quiet way of protesting, I was surprised anyone even noticed. but I am glad they did.
In case you haven't been keeping up we live in a post racial society. The only racism that exists in in the mind of brainwashed deluded black people. This victim mentality is pushed by the left to keep blacks down and dependant on government handouts. It is exemplified recently in the complaints by blacks that were pulled over. These complaints have been exposed as hoax by police body cams. There is an influential segment of the black community (eg.Al Sharpton) that make their living by perpetuating this victim mentality. Thankfully more and more blacks (eg.Candace Owens)are ditching victim mentality. That drives the Al Sharpton types nuts.
