Why Do Republicans Always Lie About Protest When It Stems from Black People?

    Why is it so important for Trump supporters and other self-proclaimed conservatives to brand the protests as un-American?

    They've heard it said a thousand times, even from the originator of the protests, in this case Colin Kaepernick, that the protest is about the abuse of black people by the police and the unfair treatment that stems directly from systemic racism and bigotry, yet they pretend like don't know what the protest is about, and/or simply ignore it and provide their own version of what the protest is about.

    Yet, when White Supremacists took to protesting they took them for their word, believed them and even DEFENDED them, both in Charlottesville and in the Cliven Bundy fiasco back in Nevada in 2014.

    To these people blacks are simply liars and/or intrinsically unpatriotic.

    Why is this?

    Martin Luther King protested without Soros pulling his strings. Genuine.
    Soros is paying for this little upheaval. Disingenuous, and anti-American to it's core.

    “Why is it so important for Trump supporters and other self-proclaimed conservatives to brand the protests as un-American?”

    Because most on the right are demagogues, they use lies, fear, and intimidation to vilify political opponents and to pander to their base.

    Conservatives know they’re wrong on the issues, they know they’re wrong to accuse those who engage in peaceful, lawful protest as being ‘un-American,’ and rather than to acknowledge the fact they’re wrong they contrive and propagate the lie that those who oppose Trump and the right’s failed, hateful, wrongheaded agenda are ‘un-patriotic’ – when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

    Why is it that the protesters are lying about why they are protesting?

    Because you do it during the national anthem. What's the matter with protesting anytime else? Not enough attention I guess.

    Doing things like burning the flag or kneeling during the anthem will always be seen as anti-American before any other message. If you all are too dumb to figure that out, well, that's your problem.
