That should be sufficient, but I fully expect a response that will try to prove a different opinion to be true.


In your opinion, which is more disrespectful to the flag, the anthem and that speaks of its glory: Kaepernick and players who kneel, or white collar tax evasion? Iím serious.

This also should be sufficient, but I fully expect a response that will try to prove a differing opinion to be true.


Not a fan of letting the states decide?

If I understand correctly, to disagree with you is to be "stubborn". I simply do not see things as you do, that in itself, does not define me as stubborn.

I repeat, you have two feet..


Ha, no, you don't understand. You're "stubborn" because you refuse to see other points of view, only your own opinion, while claiming the opposite. You choose to be outraged based on purposeful misinterpretation. And apparently you also have a foot fetish. It's kind of creeping me out.

I'll bet the same folks who are offended by flag protest at home would defend people protesting their flag in a communist country as courageous heroes exercising a basic freedom, and decry repression as undemocratic.

What about Americans who choose not to recognize our flag, and instead display and worship some other flag outside their home and auto? Would you consider this to be disrespectful to the flag and the anthem that speaks its glory? If so, which is more disrespectful in your opinion?

Outside your home and auto? Sure, it's a Free Country even for those who choose to fly the Stars and Bars...Right?

Sure, but do you find it to be disrespectful to the American flag?

I find taking a political stance that shows disdain for the Flag during the playing of the Anthem to be tremendously disrespectful.

This will continue to be view.

They are not tough and they are not difficult to understand. I really don't know how to express myself any more clearly. You are clearly looking for some sort of response that fits your agenda and well, that is just not gonna happen, we are most definitively standing on opposite sides of the fence and that is fine with me, but for some reason, it seems to get under your skin and you are unable to let it go.

You could try answering the questions.

All Iím looking for is discussion about the topic, and answers to my questions, but for some reason, you have chosen not to answer. I didnít realize you prefer not to get into it.

Nope, just looking to advance the discussion. If you donít want to answer, then fine by me at this point. Have a good one!

Did you guys know that Mennonites, Amish, and Jehovah's Witnesses "disrespect" the flag and national anthem for various reasons.

I don't hear any calls for them to leave the country, and they've been thumbing their collective noses at the flag and anthem for many years.

White privilege?


I am not Amish, Quaker, JW, or Mennonite but I have other family members and friends who are.

They do not demonstrably honor the flag, no.

But people of these religions would cut off their own legs before they deliberately dishonored, disrespected the flag or the National Anthem, or the United States as a country, and they do not honor the American flag because they are pacifists and have a history of oppression and persecution.

Many Quakers do not honor the American flag either, for pacifist reasons.

ie.protest against war.

They don't make pledges or swear on the Bible. They affirm, instead.

From the link:

"Quakers believed in living in such honesty that an oath could add nothing to what they said. As one of their founders George Fox said, when arrested and asked to swear the oath of allegiance: "Our allegiance [does] not lie in oaths but in truth and faithfulness." When handed a Bible to swear on, Fox opened it at the verse that read, "Swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath" - a rather awkward text for the book that people are supposed to swear on."

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-32809040

Also, not all Mennonites, Quakers, and Jehovah's Witnesses are white. I know people who are all of these sects of Christianity who are black, Asian, Latino, and who have a heritage from indigenous native tribes in various central and South American countries.

There are even black people who converted to being Amish, but they find it very difficult since they do not speak Schwaebisch-Badisch, Plautdietsch, or Hochdeutsch, and being Amish is completely different than what they are used to. Of course the Amish speak and write English, but their religious sermons are in these dialects of German, and many Amish will speak these dialects of German amongst themselves, or use them when writing letters.

There's also a sect of Amish who use electricity, use the internet and mobile phones, and drive cars.

This shows no ones color, but perfectly illustrates how I feel about CK's right to take a knee during the Anthem.

The lefties keep screaming about "his right" but no real American mentions it.

CK too a racist stand and insulted The U.S.

His is and will remain unemployed because of his own actions.

Are you kidding me with that crap? How does that feel? What?...Me?...lol. The right to make Millions? More power to him! Seriously. It is about the money. Go get it Colin, and this same cheer goes out to all Professional athletes. Sign for all you can get.

Was this meant to evoke jealousy? Hahaha

That was directed at Mule because I know it bothers him. However, I did post legit questions for you in the other thread.

There are many veterans on record stating that they have no issue with the kneeling. Are they wrong?

BigV talks about tolerance and listening to the other side and yet he refuses to accept the position of the athletes who kneel. He claims it is something else, disrespect. Thenhe calls liberals intolerant of other viewpoints.

You can't make this stuff up.


And your photoshopped picture of Kaepernick kneeling is idiotic and pointless.

But keep on attacking "the left". We actually put some thought into our beliefs. You just knee jerk yours.

I am tolerant of it, I just don't agree with it. It is my disagreement that brings forth your intolerance.

"I don't understand".."I refuse to accept"..Please. I have listened and I still disagree. For you to accept that, would be "tolerant".

Not true IMO. It's not your disagreement, but your disparagement of the other side while discussing your disagreement. Why do you expect to criticize people and not hear any heat in return? Seems odd to expect nothing to be said.
