Millions of americans Have fought and died FOR this country and its ideals. The civil war was fought to end slavery, we fought against tyranny Known as Hitlers riech. it began in the revolutionary war. How many american Mothers, Fathers, sisters and Brothers Have saw the flag draped over thier Loved Ones coffin?
They absolutley did not fight for " the right to protest against the american flag, the symbol of america and what it stands for. Those red stripes are painted with the blood shed for freedom, Honor and EQUALITY. america Has come from a nation as most nations are founded on terrible things Like slavery, slaughter of indigeanous tribes ect...But people are missing that we fought those wars and Have reached a plase where in Our Law, in our constitution all people are equal. the flag represents first and foremost those who have given the sacrifice of thier Lives so that you and I can Live as free people and Have such a thing as democracy.
find another act to display in protest of racism and police brutality, whether you intend to or not, those flags come from those coffins and are handed to widows, Mothers, fathers it is what they get back from the soldier they send off to war that gives His or here Life. sure.....we have a " right" to protest the flag......its offensive to americans who have suffered the greatest loss for this place we call the Land of the free.....it didnt become free at no cost. think it through before you side with someone Kneeling when americans unwritten rule has always been to stand, together in Honor of those who have given far more than you or I.
every sports figure doing this should apologize and find a different protest its offensive to americans who consider where we have come from and How we got there. And is it trump dividing us over this? or when we all stand is it a thing of unity? One of the very few things we do that doesnt matter who you are, what color, what gender, old, young.....we used to take it as an honor to Live Here. there will always be idiots that march and say ignorant things, refusing to stand during the presentation of the flag and national anthem should be condemned by every american. if you dont like it Here, try going to syria, North Korea, china, russia and you may then understand How far we have come and How free we really are thanks to every soldier who has Given thier Lives, even those who didnt die in war, still they fought because of Love of God and country...
I agree with trump its disgraceful if thats the protest one chooses, listen carefully " We stand to Honor those who fell and will fall tomorrow to keep us free"
