Hurrah for our Constitutional Freedoms!
So Colin Kaepernick exercised his constitutional rights and remained seated during the playing of the national anthem. Does this make him a hater of America? He was actually protesting on behalf of the unheard millions of Americans who cannot make their voices heard. Hmm, this sounds as though he might care about ordinary Americans. In other countries it is not mandatory to stand when the national anthem is played and while we like the idea, should someone be ripped apart on the field and in the media if he uses his freedom of speech and expression to make a statement by remaining seated? NFL Media reporter, Steve Wyche, reports on this.
So, it appears that you can’t be a part of this free society unless you do exactly what everyone else is doing ….
Food for thought!
