He just picked a fight with the NFL and has them and the Democrats basically defending the 6-figure and millionaire players' right not to stand for the anthem.
"I'm so oppressed, I just signed a multimillion dollar contract. I just have to kneel during the National Anthem."
A private in the US Army makes $1600 a month. Is he allowed to kneel when the Anthem is played without jeopardizing his career?
The difference of course, is the private has an important job, whereas an NFL Player is just an entertainer.
"Leave the oppressed guys who make 6-7 Figures alone, Orange Douche! If the NFL wants to market itself as America's Pastime while kneeling in front of the flag (which started under a Black President, BTW), nobody should criticize it!"

The NFL rehired Michael Vick, a man who tortured animals for profit. Aaron Hernandez killed somebody. Darrell Russel was a rapist. That's just the tip of the iceburg
FortWayne saysNFL has let America down by catering to liberals and that stupidity.Huh?America was built by liberals and immigrants. You're just not smart enough to understand what this country is all about. So just sit there and be quiet
NFL has let America down by catering to liberals and that stupidity.
Was built by religious conservative people, who were patriots.
Even if your statement is true, it is irrelevant whether or not someone perceives an action as a sign of disrespect. What matters is whether or not an action is intended as a sign of disrespect. Furthermore, it is utterly meaningless to talk about disrespect for a country. Country are imaginary entities. You can only show disrespect for people.
Furthermore, anyone who is more concerned with their social status than the victims of police murder, rape, and terrorism does not deserve one micron of respect. The only respectable response to the NFL protest is solidarity and concern for the problem of police crimes. It is just as offensive condemning such a gesture as it would be to condemn a gesture remembering the Holocaust victims and for the exact same reason. Such outrage shows complete disrespect for the very lives of your fellow Americans.
Imagine how disrespectful it is for cops to body slam a woman, rip her clothes off, and put their entire hands up the woman's vagina against her will. That's disrespectful.
Trivializing such a horrific atrocity is disrespectful…
I know it hurts to admit when your country does something shameful and despicable.
Before the NWSL match between the Seattle Reign and Chicago Red Stars, Rapinoe took a knee during the national anthem, while the rest of her teammates remained standing. She expressed solidarity with Kaepernick, saying that, as a gay American, she knows "what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties," and that "it’s important to have white people stand in support of people of color on this."
His first few remarks are anti-American, America is evil, injust, has been forever, needs to change, etc ramble..
Kaepernick wasn't known for his politics until he started dating an Anti-American, Egyptian Muslim Woman, Nessa D'iab who grew up in Saudi Arabia with modestly wealthy parents
FortWayne saysWas built by religious conservative people, who were patriots.Your both wrong. The country was built by slaves.
Show the evidence or stop spreading such anti-American lies
Free speech is bad when Kaep kneels during a national anthem
This is Kaepernick's first Press interview. His first few remarks are anti-American, America is evil, injust, has been forever, needs to change, etc ramble.. When finally asked specifically what "Police Brutality" he refers to, he hesitates and after a few moments of stuttering comes up with something about cops getting paid leave (meaning, that in the period while the cop hasn't been charged with anything, while it's still be determined what actually happened and if any procedures/policies were violated, the government shouldn't be paying it's salaried employees - a ridiculous demand).He mentions People of Color and Police Brutality against People of Color (that French term, as nobody says "Paints or Crayons of Color". The correct translation would be "Colored People", but th...
