You said it better than I could.
True. But I respect the point that Dole was making and I understand and respect the point the kneelers are making.
If it is the mythical, bigger than life, goodness and humanity that is being honored, why not continue it long past the funeral and make it a genuine lasting tribute?
It would appear that Stiglich has never actually read the U.S. Flag Code.
Subservients kneel but men and woman stand to show respect. We kneel to God but not to equals. NFL players who take a knee to the national anthem or flag are indicating they are less than what those represent— the direct opposite of their intent.
Well tom, since you aren’t black or brown, how would you know.
Thank you, Mr. Stiglich , for taking notice of one honorable brother-in-arms showing the greatest of respect toward another.
Two men I often disagreed with but who survived war, and learned from it to be better men. With Dole, it’s age, but many of my friends have been unable to stand since the late ’60’s, and we don’t hold those who kneel to plead a cause that diserves respect guilty of anything but good citizenship. They DO understand what the flag is supposed to represent, far better than the majority of their detractors.
Mr Dole’s stand/salute to Mr Bush is a sign of deep respect. Nicely done, Tom.
And some slither on their fat orange bellies.
both are ok
Part of the tactics used by an enemy of a nation is to infiltrate their enemy’s society and disrupt their ability to communicate effectively internally by making their language ambiguous … (.e.g) progressive —a positive attribute —can have negative connotations in partisan propaganda or submissive kneeling can be willfully and politically misconstrued as arrogance, etc. Having different meaning for the same words can be a weapon that the enemy of a nation can take advantage of in times of stress.
The Republican party has fallen a long way since they had a presidential candidate as respectable as Dole.
Don’t use him to take a cheap shot at people who choose to peacefully protest against institutionalized racism.
