Apparently more football players are taking their knees rather than standing and saluting the American Flag during American football games!
Now, I’m about as American as they come. Born in Connecticut, raised in Arizona. A believer in both the First and Second Amendments. And businesses running their businesses as they see fit. (Sorry, Mr. President!)
If an entertainment business agrees it’s okay for their employees to act in such a disrespectful manner, so be it.
Hopefully, if the audience votes with their feet, or their on/off switch, it’s no skin off my nose.
I’m not particularly a football fan.
If I’m in a public venue, I will still stand proudly, with my hand over my heart, when the National Anthem is played. And will sing along – ( I have a passable voice!)
The protestors will display allow me to display my opinion, as I will theirs. (Hopefully)
That’s what Freedom of Speech and Redress of Grievances in a Free Republic should be!
If the government begins enforcing what kind of Speech is acceptable, we have lost…
(to my friends who disagree with this, you have a right to!)
But start telling me what Speech is acceptable, and we may have words!
