• Entire High School Football Team Takes a Knee (Seattle)

    Colin Kaepernick should be proud, I guess. He has managed to single-handedly make it cool to disrespect our nations flag in the name of what?

    Social justice? Give me a break.

    Maybe the coaches and the parents should teach their kids that life isn’t fair, but you go on. In spite of injustice, you are free to do or become anything you want to in America…no matter what color you are.

    Videos are from the Seattle Times:

    In America, the color of our flag unites us. Apparently, the coaches and the parents of these kids don’t understand the high cost of freedom.

    If you’ve ever been handed an American flag folded like a triangle, you understand.

    Interview with Coach Joey Thomas:

    This coach is real proud of his players and what he calls the “player led” protest over social justice that they plan to keep up all year. Maybe he should try leading and explain to these young men that we honor our nation and its flag in the face of its imperfections.

    According to a report from Q13 Fox Seattle:

    Seattle Public Schools issued the following statement:  “Students kneeling during the national anthem are expressing their rights protected by the First Amendment. Seattle Public Schools supports all students’ right to free speech.”

    It’s as if the people doing these types of protests truly don’t see how disgusting they look to the average American.

    The NFL sure hasn’t gotten the message yet. Roger Goodall hasn’t taken a knee yet, even in the face of declining market share.

    It’s truly sad what Kaepernick has done. This high school kneeling is a direct result of his example.

    True American heroes like our soldiers are being disrespected by this ongoing insult and it needs to stop, but doesn’t look likely to.
