    Just wondering about everyone's position here.

    While I sympathize with (Kaepernick's) initial reasoning, I'm not sure I agree with kneeling. Whatever social niggles the US has, the flag and National Anthem are as much to honor those who fought and/or died for the country.



    Quote:
    That said, my opinion shifted once Trump weighed in. A President suggesting people be fired (i.e. punished) for kneeling during the National Anthem makes it a direct case of government interfering with freedom of speech, something those same soldiers fought and died defending.




but it was something that was pretty stupid to say and was wrong to say. Not that it matters. Nobody was really talking about why they were kneeling. Folks were offended and went off the rockers without ever thinking about that.
