    ‘The president is embracing an "us versus them" conflict involving politics, patriotism and popular American pastimes. And there is an unmistakable racial element at play, since he is targeting prominent black players.’

    In Kaepernik's case, his birth mother was whore. So in his case at least, "son of a whore" would have been more accurate. And of course there's the apple and tree bit.

    The NFL chose to try to divide America by allowing paid employees to protest on the NFL's time.

    You reap what you sow. Now the NFL ticket sales and ratings are down because of it. All President Trump did was speak the obvious truth. The NFL should fire these assholes who chose to protest, otherwise they are literally paying them to protest the national anthem on live TV.

    Those teams are like families. If anything, more players will be kneeling now.

    In my opinion, there would've been a divide no matter what because of that player putting his feelings about our nation's anthem out there first. When one pair of pennies are thrown down, other pairs can and will follow.

    God bless you always!!!
