    When I was in junior high one classmate Danny, a Jehovah’s Witness, would not stand and say the pldege of allegiance as we all did every morning. There was never any repercussions that I knew about, and this in the mid 60s.

    Should we make Jehovah’s Witnesses like young Danny stand, salute and swear and oath to a flag as Dotard tRump wants? (BTW – The Supreme Court disagrees with Dotard saying in 1943,

    If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us.

    Young Danny did not have a political agenda.
    Young Danny was not being paid millions of dollars to entertain.
    Young Danny did not hate cops.
    Young Danny was a minor and did not fully understand the repercussions of his actions.
    Young Danny was not being filmed, watched and reported on by the world.

    Young Danny was most likely not your friend.
    Young Danny believed you were going to hell if you did not believe what he believed.

    Young Danny’s around the NFL believe that all white men are racists.
    Young Danny’s around the NFL think that because they can catch a football they are entitled.

    The Young Danny’s of the NFL are the very epitome of everything they hate about the White man and the cops whom they pretend to protest. Rich, powerful, upper class, living in mansions, driving fancy cars, jet setting, paying lawyers to help them not pay taxes, avoiding serious repercussions because of their status and money. Groping women because they can get away with it. Doing all those things the left believes all White men do.

    There is nothing noble about the NFL kneeling. It is only a selfish act of defiance because they can. Not because they should. Just like Weinstein raping women because he could not because he should.

    Yes the Young Dannys of the NFL are everything you hate Jeffery. Most likely you hated Danny back in JR. High because his was a religious thing and you claim to be an Atheist. But the young Dannys of today are just swell because they are reacting to Trump. Their narrative fits in with your hate Trump agenda.

    Your little story is so cute. It belittles Danny while belittling the NFL even more. But the NFL is powerful. Harvey Weinstein was powerful. Ezekiel Elliot is powerful. They will escape for now. But not always. There is always the piper to pay, the fiddler to pay. The cab driver wants his money and the IRS will eventually find you. Death and taxes are certain. The rest is nothing but a story about Young Danny.

      Rot,

      So as an outsider you think an American’s 1st Amendment rights depend on one’s situation and motivation?

      Religious motivations tRump political motivations?

      We guess we should be comforted that you don’t think 12 year old Americans should be jailed for sitting during the Pledge.

      Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Crazytown) thinks the NFL players “disrepecting the flag” are breaking federal law and should be prosecuted.

      Patriotism enforced by the threat of punishment is antithetical to American freedoms.

        Being an outsider as you put it with a wife and three children born in the USA, My wife and two children actually graduated from 2 different universities as Ive posted elsewhere.

        Having spent 19 years in the United States working with a work visa, Legally obtained I have a unique perspective of America, I think, that most Americans take for granted.

        Once again your entire story was written to trash President Trump. It was not intended for any other reason. No one in your country other then Antifa and the communists believe that the 1st amendment does not protect NFL players or little Danny from not standing.

        However let me ask you a question. If we are protected by the 1st amendment then why has the pledge of allegiance been banned in many schools around the USA? If as you say Patriotism enforced by the threat of punishment is wrong, then why is patriotism denied by the threat of punishment acceptable? The pledge of allegiance, Public prayer, Statues of famous Americans being torn down, the removal of religious symbols. This is the denial of pride in country for allowing a varying degree of perspectives by its many residents.

        Yet the left in america continues to deny patriotism with the threat of punishment if one dares to embark upon the exercise of these freedoms.

        As you say. Punishment is wrong to enforce ones will, but that is exactly what Aethists and the left do daily in America to enforce their view of what is best for America and Americans.

        So don’t lecture me about being an outsider. Of all people, I for one have the perspective of living in various countries during my long life and I understand more then you most likely ever could the destructive divisiveness of political ambitions to squelch dissent.

    If I had done or said something to drive away customers from my past employers, would those employers have had the right to fire me? Yeah, I’d have been exercising my freedom of speech, and my past employers would have been exercising their rights to do what they thought best for their businesses.

    It’s perfectly legal for the NFL players to kneel during the national anthem. It’s also perfectly legal for me to not watch the games — though the ‘local’ team is the dog Cincinnati Bengals, so not watching can’t really be called a boycott — and it’s perfectly legal for the teams and/or the league to get rid of the malcontents.

    Rot,

    Thank you for your service to America.

    Are you saying there are public schools in America that have banned the Pledge of Allegiance? One ongoing point of contention with our Pledge was the “under God” added in 1954. The Supreme Court ruled it was NOT unConstitutional for the state to force public school students to recite “under God”. Again, around 1965, Danny M. in my junior high suffered no consequences (that I know of) for sitting out the Pledge. The kids didn’t seem to care, almost as if the rote recitation of the Pledge was not that meaningful. If Black kids back then had stayed seated in protest, the school (in southern Missouri) might have reacted more vigorously.

    We stand for the Star Spangled Banner at Busch Stadium for baseball games (sometimes at the urinal, but still standing!!), but also support the right and motivation of the NFL players who kneel to protest the treatment of Blacks in America. We get it. We White Americans see life here through our own perspective and imagine it’s been good for everyone. Rich, privileged Black men complaining about OUR America, that they are lucky we share with them, rankle us.

    State sponsored prayer, the removal of state funded religious symbols and even the removal of symbols of our troubled (and troubling) past are not suppression of patriotism, even if those who support instituting a state religion (like Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Crazytown) claim that it is.

    We recognize that many white men on the far-right object to freedoms and rights being extended to all Americans, including women, Blacks, immigrants, agnostics, Muslims and queers. Things change.

    The privileged classes ALWAYS view rights bestowed to the oppressed to be a taking of their own privileged rights. Always.

    Do you think governments (fed, state and local in the US) should force Americans to be exposed to Christian prayers? Does the legalization of same sex marriage (opposed by some religions) really violate the Constitutional rights of those that oppose it?

    Rotter,
    It is a waste of time discoursing with Jeff. He will distort and lie and then call you names if you best him. Just call him a fool and don’t directly respond. Your insight is very valuable, Jeff’s sucks.
