These pampered overpaid professional athletes who are kneeling during the National Anthem, many of whom obviously do not even know what they are protesting. Are basically giving everyone who respects the American Flag and The National Anthem the finger. It is one thing protest at the game, before and after the National Anthem and everyone is entitled to voice their opinion, but not during the National Anthem, a time of respect.
I have been at too many funerals of those who have served and were recognized with a coffin draped with the American Flag This so called protest during the National Anthem is an insult to all who have served, especially those who died in the service of the United States. Those who died for that Flag have preserved your right to protest, don’t insult them by sneering at the symbols that represent them.
