    Lol, some of you just can't help live up to the worst of the other sides prejudices. I just was bemoaning the lack of basic respect for one another on this board and the very next post you call me a moron. Now I agree I think it a reach as an argument myself but then again I wasn't making it. No, I don't believe he was taking a knee because of the lyrics of the anthem. I think he did it to protest how blacks are treated in the US. I think this because Kapearnick said that was his reasoning. Since I don't think protesting racism is in any way unpatriotic, I don't think he was wrong doing so. It's Trump who made this about something it wasn't. None of this is , the reason I replied to the OP. So respectfully, bother someone else, if you are incapable of civilized discourse.

    He is a fool. Blacks are mistreated by the democrat party, not by our society......to think otherewise shows real stupidity.

    I'm not a huge fan of the flag. And, I don't give a rip about honoring the military. US soldiers don't actually defend my freedom. And, most of them are just mercenaries.

    But, many football fans love to be patriotic and they pay to see the whole football show, not just the game itself. If it were just the game, the NFL could dispense with the cheerleaders, the half-time show, and many other things including the team standing for the National Anthem. Football fans are not paying to see rich brats protest during the National Anthem.

    The NFL wouldn't tolerate the disrespectful behavior of those black boorish brats if the NFL wasn't afraid of being called racist. That's disrespect to the fans, not the flag.

    Stop.

    You just trashed your argument with the very first sentence.

    It's interesting, really, you demanding that conservatives "look beyond their own beliefs to understand the philosophies or tenets of others." As far as I can tell, you aren't interested in sowing diversity of opinion, simply in engendering equality of opinion, more rather, to make everyone believe the same philosophies and tenets as yourself. Really, how can you liberals/leftists sit there and claim to be champions of diverse thought when you say stuff like this? Huh?

    Question for you:

    Can you look past your own beliefs to understand the philosophies and tenets of others? Or is this just a one sided thing?

    I can think of few things more ironic than a leftist accusing others of these characteristics

    Notice that everything that the Left Wingers rage against they do with gusto: hate, prejudice, intolerance, ignorance, discrimination, stereotyping, greed.......
