That’s what? Six administration officials using private emails now? Where’s the outrage? Any minute now, I expect their angry cries of “Lock them up!”
There is a correlation. Puerto Rico has a large population of people with a darker skin tone. Therefore, their needs are unimportant. The NFL has a large number of players with a darker skin tone, therefore their demands are unimportant. Not only that, but their protests (unlike those of the fine white men who carried Nazi flags in Charlottesville) are unpatriotic and should therefore be punished.
You know what’s really ironic? Trump gets all bent out of shape about these athletes disrespecting the flag – or the soldiers who fought for freedom – yet he’s the guy who dodged the draft then disrespected servicemen like John McCain or Humayun Khan – and millions of other military personnel.
It’s simple. We have become the old USSR where expressions of “Patriotism” are enforced, and those who fail to comply are ostracized, fired, or worse. Thanks Comrade Trump.
I used to know Richard Petty’s cousin. He said Petty is one of the biggest creeps in the world. So, it’s no surprise.
You disrespect the country by ignoring the injustices visited upon millions of our fellow citizens. We’re you this vexed when the Nazis and KKK marched through Charlottesville? I hope so, because our country actually fought wars against people carrying those flags – flags which stand for the destruction of the USA. And yet, right wingers deem them to be “fine people.”
Wrong. It is absolute respect for what that flag is supposed to stand for. It is respect for the idea that all people deserve the same rights, and it is giving voice to those who do not receive the same rights because of their skin color, gender, religion or national origin. You, on the other hand, show blatant disrespect for the constitution.
You need to learn what that flag stands for and what the constitution means. Kneeling to protest the ongoing violations of the constitutional rights of millions of Americans IS patriotic and is exactly what those soldiers fought for. Please note that many many veterans are supporting the NFL players. You, on the other hand, seem to be spitting on the very cause this country was founded upon.
So, he’s guilty of money laundering?
That’s why corporations keep registering record profits (while their employees enjoy stagnating wages, loss of benefits, and layoffs).
