Hopefully his scout leader is a chomo. He might as well learn how to do one thing the Scouts still believe in.

no one is suppressing anything and you damn well know it.

It is 100% disrespectful to the military to kneel when the flag is being honored by others. Matter of fact it’s disrespectful to all who are honoring the flag at that moment, military or not.

And the kids father is an ******* for playing politics with youngster like that.

Nice little write up from this brainwashing lawyer

This was a modern day lynching. The impunity with which officers inflict violence upon black people is essential to the fear and terror necessary for racial oppression and control. Members of the black community see that they are powerless at the hands of police misconduct, and counsel their children to be obedient to police who are not protecting them. As a result of these kinds of encounters, the rule of law is diminished as communities of color lose respect for the law which does not protect them from police misconduct. This article explores how the purpose of resisting charges is not public safety, it is a form or racial control targeting people of color who "disrespect" authority. The particular practice of punishing black people for disrespect with resisting charges is one expression the broader policy of the "war on drugs," which has really been a war on poor communities of color. This failed "war on drugs," has led to the mass incarceration of black people - another form of racial control. In addition to exploring the racial underpinnings of resisting charges, this article also suggests legal strategies lawyers can use to defend these charges. You will find here ideas for preparing for trial, authority for motions, and common patterns in litigating these cases. Defending these cases in court not only serves victim of racial oppression, but also helps support the broader movement to expose and remedy systemic racism in our court system. Finally, this article tries to find pathways to reimagine and reorient policing to focus on public safety and end racial disparities in policing.

Can you explain why it is disrespectful, specifically to the military?

We're all patriots here, all respectful of freedom, so why is an exercise of freedom disrespectful to any freedom loving patriot?

Answer: it's not!

proof you remain a troll.
Ask a question to continue the conversation and then answer it yourself. Meaning you never wanted to consider the answer or another position.

Answer: it's not!
It is. Because, in the military, you only kneel in the presence of that flag for one reason.

It is.

For the same reason it would be disrespectful to interrupt a MLK day celebration with a protest to push "awareness" for your own agenda.

Even a complete retard should understand that and not suggest that the First Amendment would make the timing appropriate.

You seem to be so goddamn ignorant that you think the 1st Amendment allows people to say whatever they want and nobody is allowed to respond negatively. Those Westboro Baptist guys... they're just exercising their 1st Amendment rights too, right?

Yea, he can legally kneel all he wants. The 1st Amendment doesn't protect him from being called an ignorant piece of **** for doing so. Is some part of that beyond your comprehension?

A lot of northern Libs have moved here because of RTP and all the jobs it creates that reach as far as Durham. Too bad. If a kid did that in Fayetteville, they'd get the crap kicked out of them by the rest of the troupe.

I'm calling you out RIM!

It's obvious that our resident douchenozzle does not know what the flag of the United States stands for. The freedom that he enjoys was paid for those of us the signed a blank check to the US Government. Many of these checks have been cashed at places like Omaha Beach Khe Sahn Vietnam, Fallujah Iraq, and the results are in the cemeteries in France, Arlington, Va, Fort Sam Huston Sam Antonio, TX. I took this picture at the American Cemetary in France.


Lucky for me my check was returned.

Also, I do NOT hide behind my keyboard... Anyone that wants a face to face... PM me I will be there and see if you have the stones to show up.

So you see this disrespect for the flag and the National Anthem is disrespect to those that served.

You want to protest... knock yourself out just pick another venue.
