- So many have tried to say it is not about disrespecting the Nation Anthem of flag but IT IS. They freely chose to spit on the symbol of this country. No other country would tolerate what they do. Try this is North Korea or Saudi Arabia.I wish we could post images as I look at one mime I love. Four squares:1. A wife crying on a flag draped coffin coming off a plane. Caption “This is why you don’t step on the flag.”2. A military member in a wheelchair with a limb missing. Caption “This is why you stand for the National Anthem.” 3. A Cemetary full of graves. Caption “This is why you don’t erase history.” 4. Image of the American Flag Caption “You’re not Black, White, Yellow, or Brown. YOU’RE AN AMERICAN START ACTING LIKE IT”.
I do understand there have been attacks on people simply because of the color of their skin or their religious beliefs. I am sorry this country has so many ignorant uncouth, uneducated people in it that do these things. It has gone on since the beginning of mankind. We have a long way to go and we do need to be thankful for the people like Martin Luther King and so many others like Rosa Parks and Benjamin Banneker. But we do not spit and disrespect the National Anthem. They should have had the insight to choose a better venue of protest. Perhaps at the halftime show and disrupting it.
- BTW, don’t call me a Trump fan, I am not. I dislike him but he was far better than the Hillary. Actually nobody won this time. I am independent and can go either way on an issue. I tend to be socially liberal but economically conservative.
