    America's manufactured crisis, courtesy of your Democratic Party and their Media.

    Actually no political party had a hand in either of these issues.

    The statue thing started with Nikki Haley and the Confederate flag coming down from the SC statehouse -- public property -- which spurred cities and various municipalities across the country to examine the public-space use of their own spaces for Confederate propaganda put specifically in those spaces for that propaganda purpose. That's their right. And that was spurred by Dylann Roof.

    I'm not sure any of us knows what Dylann Roof's political party is or if he had one, but rotsa ruck demonstrating that he was acting on its behalf.

    The football thing was started by the media, milking a story out of a silent single player's passive protest. Then it was rekindled by Orange Jeebus because he thought he could stir some shit.

    Again, neither Colin Kaepernick nor Dumbnail Rump was acting on behalf of a political party.

    So back to your title, "leave the statues alone" is a matter that is and always has been up to the municipality that owns the land on which it stands. Even Rump said that. And "stand for the national anthem" is just robotic mob mentality bullshit, and that's always worthy of question.

    How hard is THAT?

    One warning more.

    Do not smarten up chumps

    Do not interfere with an opponent committing an error.

    Are you trying to aid the Trotskyites into correcting their errors?

    "Leave the statues alone and stand for the anthem. How hard is that?"

    That's idiotic, and typical of most on the authoritarian right.

    There’s nothing ‘manufactured’ about the fact that bigotry, racism, and hate are alive and well in this country – and it’s perfectly appropriate and patriotic for Americans to protest that bigotry, racism, and hate however they see fit, consistent with First Amendment jurisprudence.

    The funny part is that they think this is effect agitprop.
