FSD and the republicans want to repeal the first amendment, donate here to stop them.

If the 49ers or NFL punish him, that's not a 1st amendment violation. there are rules at every job.

No crap? You're taking this a bit too seriously, AMERICA!

Both the NFL and the Niners basically said that out would be nice if he stood but we're not gonna make him. As you mentioned, domestic abuse among players is probably a bigger deal for them to worry about.

there is any number of issues that are a bigger deal. like almost every issue. lots of people don't love the USA, that's fine. there are lots of nationalistic rednecks that will get pissed about it and that's fine as well.

This is OT because it has nothing to do with protest but I don't like doing the national anthem. It feels like a chore when I'm at a game and it's time for it unless I know there's going to be some sick fly overs or garth brooks is singing it or something. and I especially  :rolleyes: when we have to do both america the beautiful and the national anthem. I'm here to watch the royals and spend time with my fam and friends, not pound my chest about the place I live being superior to the place other people live.

I stand, but I never take off my ballcap or put my hand over my heart during the national anthem, which has lead to a couple instances where people tried to knock my cap off my head during the anthem or shouted at me after the anthem is over. There are very odd people out there.

It's very easy to stand, take off your hat, and place a goddamn hand over a heart. Whether you're #TeamAmerica or #TeamBurnItDown, it's like the simplest instruction to follow and then go on about your day.

I need someone who is in the "you better respect the military" clan tell me why they are so against people exercising the freedoms that the military is supposedly fighting for. Seems like a contradiction, no?

I think it's fine to judge him for it, kind of like how you'd judge someone who refuses to shake someone's hand or is just a jerk in general, but people need to acknowledge this is not an attack on American freedom.

Because those rights they fought for, have given him an amazing life, where he can make millions of $'s playing a child's game. But yeah, let's pick and choose what we like about this country. "My career is dwindling down, this will be a great way to get more attention for myself. What a struggle this life has been. Adopted by two white parents that gave me everything I wanted and now I make millions of dollars playing football. Shout out to the struggle" act. Whether you believe in any of this or not, this is most redkneck's viewpoints MIR.

I mean, I always stand and take my hat off. Veterans like my father in law take it super seriously. He's a good man who fought in Vietnam. If its important to him then that's enough reason for me

Of course he has the right to be disrespectful during the national anthem.  Just like others have the right to call him an bad person or misguided for doing so.

Being for specific freedoms doesn't mean you condone every use of that freedom at any location and at any time.  For example, I'm all for the WBC's right to protest, but I still think they're assholes and deserve ridicule.  As for CK, I don't really care one way or the other.  I see the point he's trying to make and I understand why he's being criticized for it.
