The kneelers

Post by MaxEntropy_Man on Sun Sep 24, 2017 6:56 pm

There's nothing more stirring than watching a group of preternaturally talented athletes who otherwise don't give a crap about politics rise up enmasse in protest against a malignant presidency, and assert their rights as citizens. It gives me the chills.

This fucking bastard pussy-grabber is dividing the country.

I haven't seen a more black-heart, mean US politician leading the country.

Hope more protestors take up this practice of bending the knee when they see the President. Those who appreciate this gesture and are moved enough to get the chills can go a step further, and bend over as well.

Some guys need to play violent sports to get damaged brains, some other guys are naturally born with little hands and damaged brains.

At the end of the day, all these hodgepodge of gestures over the weekend reaffirmed the racial divide that (clearly) exists in this country. I'm yet to read a report of a single white player (besides one Browns player who knelt during a pre-season?) or a white owner kneel during national anthem. One of the white players regrets his teams' move to stay in the locker room. What this tells me is that white man's perception of social injustice is very very different from a colored person's or for modern American, patriotism is the first and the last refuge.

My thoughts exactly! I have had a recent experience at my kid's school that confirms this view. I'll post separately about it.

Even a right-wing nutcase like Rush Limbaugh is concerned with current state of affairs.

Awww....

Sooooo sensible post.

We take these so accepting in US of A. I'm in awe by this such polite discussion.

Imagine the furor is this were to happen in India by the you-know-who party? Smile

BTW, you appear as if you came to USA a month ago.
