I’d like to take a moment to address the issue of the National Anthem protests. Everyone has the right to protest peacefully, which is what several of the NFL players are doing. Do I agree with the manner in which they are protesting? Certainly not. However, for the President to encourage a business, in this case, the NFL to fire players for exercising their right is unconstitutional.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks understood how to protest; they encouraged peaceful and meaningful ways to protest as opposed to the way many people today conduct protests. In the time in which we live people are unhappy with certain issues with our country which should be addressed; but there are right and wrong ways of going about it. Kneeling and or sitting during the National Anthem isn’t going to solve anything, it’s a simple sign of disrespect for those who fought for our freedom.
