Defining dissent in the kneeling protest

I’m trying to get a grip on this Anthem, flag protest attitude, so I’ll give it a whirl.

The “protesters” are evidently the type of people with an attitude that look around at the current conditions or circumstances in the country to decide if they approve of America, based on satisfaction. Then of course they can’t bring their resentful hearts to respecting the flag or Anthem. The whole America concept is tainted by their disagreements.

It goes hand in hand with identity politics that everything — including your judgement — is based on your own identity. And that is why identity politics are so divisive. By contrast, only if you are satisfied with everything can you support the Anthem or flag. That’s the synopsis of their view. Who could be happy about everything they see? It becomes a false flag; and so dissatisfaction becomes a convenient straw man for American dissent.

If everything is based on your current condition or circumstances, as you see and interpret them, then it is subjective to each person. The old saying is “you can’t please all the people all the time.” – John Lydgate

“You can satisfy some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot satisfy all of the people all the time” ― John Lydgate

Dissent has been turned into an art form.
Enter the Colin Kaepernick kool-aid brigade. 🙃

    My take is a bit different. My view is that most of these players are dumb as a post with not much more than an 8th-grade education despite all being college graduates. Now since they are the elite of the elite when it comes to football, they, like their Hollywood brethren script readers actually think whatever stupid shit comes to mind is somehow brilliant.

    In truth, they are nothing more than useful idiots being played by their leftist masters. If these assholes could actually put a thought together they would realize their folly.

    Lastly, since they are protesting white racism, I can’t help but wonder if these assholes looked around at the racial makeup of the stadium attendees? They are 99% white. I’m sure they never processed the reality that Obama was elected TWICE by whites. It’s hard to fix stupid but you can fire them.
