So the constitution bans people from protesting at the work place?



What? Who the hell claimed this? Dude you really suck at this, don't you. You're embarrassing yourself. Please don't stop; you're quite funny.

quote:

Those players kneeling are doing so peacefully. You don't want them to do that. So when you said that you are ok with them protesting "however they so choose as long as it is peaceful" you are lying.


You missed that "however" I see. I will not hold your hand through this thread though, so you'll have to just figure it out on your own.


quote:

This whole thread has been about the NFL and kneeling.
Where did I say I was ok with looting and violence?



You literally stated:

Apparently it's not "however they so choose as long as it is peaceful" You only want them to protest, as long as it is a method prescribed by you.


In response to my stating:

NFL players can also protest however they so choose as long as it is peaceful.


Honey, you're the best

A compromise requires two sides willing to negotiate.

You did. I was arguing for the NFL players to kneel peacefully. You argued against peaceful kneeling in the worplace and replied "actually by the constitution you ignorant twit."

Do you not understand your own words?
You said they could peacefully protest "however they so choose as long as it is peaceful", and then said they can't protest at work.
So in the end you aren't ok with peacefully protesting "however they so choose". You're only ok with it not at work. I.e. you're only ok with them peacefully protesting if they do it in a way you want them to (i.e. not at work)

In the very next bullet point you start complaining about them protesting during the anthem and how they shouldn't protest at work, so in the end you aren't ok with them protesting "however they so choose"

re: I don't know why a compromise cannot be made by NFL.
You're calling people disgusting racist? yet you're saying it's not a good enough excuse to kneel during their job instead of stand? when black people are being murdered across the country and that's literally the only reason it has finally started changing.?? Now it will save lives. All because you pay to see football? Soulless people everywhere. How the hell does that interrupt the game anyways???? And I'm a veteran. You.... are what is disgusting

The Constitution doesn’t prevent employers from banning protests at work.

What employer wants his people protesting On his dime while wearing the company uniform?

Would you want your employees protesting abortion, high taxes, Obamacare, etc, on your dime and in your uniform? I doubt it.

After work, people can go as they please, but on company time it’s different.

That being said, the right to protest doesn't preclude you from social consequence. The NFL and owners are well within their rights to punish or suspend players for doing so on the job, but that would likely entail its own backlash. Conversely, if the NFL and owners allow players to protest on the job they will likely see backlash from those who don't agree with the players.


You finally posted something that makes sense.
People here are against the players kneeling and are protesting them using sport as a platform to push their agenda. Folks don’t want the BS messing with their leisure time. Folks don’t want people accusing them of being racists when they are not.

Just stop playing the anthem. It's dumb anyway to play it before every damn game.

they are racists and want to disrespect the flag and our country, otherwise they wouldnt insist on kneeling for the anthem
..best way to end all of this is to stop going to the games, stop buying their merchandise, don’t give a frick about the league, let them go belly up... help make the “Poor” NFL and it’s players unemployed...introduce them to the real world for a change.. instead of an excuse there’s the solution...

A protest made at the convenience of others isn't really a protest.

re: I don't know why a compromise cannot be made by NFL.
Are you somehow NOT paying attention ? MANY of these 'protests' seem to be an excellent EXCUSE to riot/loot/confront police/block roads and interstates....NONE of these 'activities' are even done with a PERMIT....you know, just like every other event of group HAS to have ! BLM...WANTS/DEMANDS/DOXES/Calls out ALL parties that don't actively join them/kneel to them or grovel to them....You actually don't see the hypocrisy of the whole thing ? Want to have a real discussion about what ELSE ails the black 'family' and just HOW to really address most of their 'issues' ??

Because you are reasonable person. Most of us would be ok with this. But this is about the flag contrary to what they say. It is all about making ppl who love this country to submit to their whims.

There is no intent of disrespect. He was sitting on the bench and a retired green beret told him that was disrespectful and that taking a knee is a sign of respect paid to fallen soldiers.

If there is no intent to be disrespectful and the gesture is a sign of respect, then people are simply choosing to get butthurt because they don’t agree with the message.

Yeah, he said he doesn’t show respect for a racist country that treats AA’s poorly. This is AFTER the USA voted a black man in as POTUS...TWICE!

He didn’t have to say shite. He said it all in his childish tantrum to NFL.COM.

They should also understand their employer may not like it if it harms the bottom line in the future

They should also understand if they really want their message to be heard from everyone, it might be wise to demonstrate in a way that doesn't anger people who view the flag/anthem differently than them


The "employers" gave them the right/opportunity to protest during working hours when they decided to play the anthem "during working hours"... I mean how many of you hear the national anthem before you clock in at work? Why should they? If the anthem wasn't playing, there would be opportunities to kneel... stop playing the anthem, and NO ONE will have to watch them kneel, seems pretty simple to me.

But it is to a lot of people.

You can say they shouldn’t feel that way, but they do. So, now that the players know a lot of people feel it’s disrespectful, why do they keep doing it? Why don’t they kneel right before the anthem, and then stand for it? Their message would still be getting out, and they wouldn’t be pissing anyone off about the anthem and flag. It seems so simple
