    You know what I meant, and yes, I might have had a minor stroke while typing that.

    He did expect them to unite and pay respect to the flag and country as did millions of others. Some of us think that respecting the flag is preferable over a protest during the event. Protest before or after but not during.

    Showing respect for the flag isn't exclusively the Leagues business. He expressed what millions of others also felt. He didn't say he was against protesting he said he would fire anyone who doesn't respect the flag. that's a majority sentiment in my opinion.

    Obviously no source is perfect source, and any newspaper will have some bias, but honestly in many ways NYT has been softer on the alt-right than even right leaning publications.

    Also buas doesn’t make facts wrong. If an Eagle’s fan says they have a better team than a Cowboys fan, they’ll probably bring up the score of the Superbowl. They’re simultaneously biased, and objectively correct,

    Finally I think you should look into diving a little deeper into the impact of this radicalism. The Charleston shooting had a meaningful impact in this country, as did Charlottesville. I don’t think one person on UVA campus will forget seeing a bunch of assholes in Tiki Torches chant “Jews will not replace us”, likewise the men and women in local synagogues that had men with AK-47s post up outside their church,

    The difference between leftists and right wing extremists is how frequently they show up in force, intimidate and attack journalists (Gavin McGinness just had his guys show up to a journalists house to threaten his family, and are even represented by politicians (not even in the sheepish apologizing of Trump, but sincere elected officials that fully endorse white nationalism.) The alt-right is jockeying to be a political force, and it’s doing so with the usual playbook far right organizations have relied on to gain a foothold. That just doesn’t exist on the left.
    You keep claiming it doesn't exist on the left, I don't think that's true.

    Barkley already said it, they are not role models, they were not obligated to stand according to their contract nor by law, and as stated many times if you don't like it don't buy it, watch it or whatever you want. But they were within their rights.

    On the other hand you have the president who instead of looking for talking points, mending fences, uniting, etc. throws a hissy fit, nevermind that no eagle took a knee nor stayed in the locker all season long, because a couple of players don't want to shake his hand and act like he's all that, and cancels an event...

    It isn't his fucking business.

    All he was looking to do was fire up the knuckle dragger base.

    Most of which probably don't even display a fucking flag, or if they do, do so improperly.

    This was all about firing up blue collar whites who feel blacks shouldn't be making millions playing a game.

    Some of us throw a “hissy fit”. because certain things are sacred to us. The flag and what it stands for happens to be one of those things. It’s a matter of watching some show their utter disrespect of this country by choosing this particular time to vent their protests. It simply is not the appropriate time to display your own agendas by trampling on the very time when so many are trying to show their allegence to this country. It is an outrage and there are those of us who will never bend to the point of being okay with this kind of conduct. I am actually glad to see the countrys leader take a position to try to preserve this show of respect for the country.
