Colin Kaepernick: I won't stand 'to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people'
I love constantly talking about this, so much in fact I've stopped watching a lot of football and reading sports sites.
Enough is enough.
Why are you focusing on Kaepernick, he's one of a few hundred? What, one protester gets out of line and therefore the protest becomes ipso facto wrong?*?&^?%?$#?????
Oh and this protester after speaking with a vet, never said that again and began kneeling in protest. You'll never see that kinda reason, empathy, openmindedness and drive to do what's right on a Packer Forum
FYI for Barfarn
They were inside a Hanger, they don't need to turn or do anything because they are indoors.
OMG, you must have been a shameless “ducker” [People that run indoors before Reveille or Retreat and/or wait inside ‘til over].
Let me explain how this works. When a Patriot gets the effing chance to honor the Flag, he does it. A patriot doesn't call his attorney to determine if an open airplane hangar can be considered “indoors” to get out of respecting the Flag during Retreat.
Trump is the Commander-in-Chief, his behavior matters. His attack on all that is Brown and Black [Arpiao pardon, pulling FEMA from Puerto Rico, refusing to denounce white supremacy, calling Black NFL players SOBs, etc]; his military buffoonery like this [and saying “we got submarines that go underwater”, publically revealing the location of our subs, publically revealing future plans of 7th Fleet, revealing sensitive intel to Russians, etc.], and his embarrassing/unhinged behavior as a “statesman” [getting into kiddy fights with several foreign leaders, insulting and calling foreign leaders 2nd grade names, his unhinged nd emptier threats, his sabotage of Tillerson’s attempts at diplomacy, etc.]; his profiteering as POTUS; has created a HUGE morale problem right now. Our troops simply don’t believe that his putting them in harm’s way is about the interest of America; but more likely a childish vengeful temper tantrum or a move to profit in his businesses. It’s FUBAR for the squids, airdales and doggies, as well.
I envision this encounter between us:
Barfarn [Completing salute on completion of Retreat]: Private! Why did you fail to stand at attention during Retreat?!
PFWT: Sergeant Major, Sir! We are in an open airplane hangar, which constitutes being indoors.
Barfarn: That is a pile of bull dung Private. Here’s a toothbrush, you have until 22:00 to clean the latrine. If you do it again expect detention of 1 week’s pay and 2 days arrest in quarters.
PFWT: Yes, Sergeant Major, Sir. Oh, Sergeant Major is that 22:00 in the evening?
Barfarn: Looks in stunned disbelief and walks silently away shaking head.
