I actually kind of agree with nd33. The only way we disrespect the flag, this country, and the national anthem is by how we treat each other. This country is the people in it. The flag is a symbol of this country, of the people, as is the national anthem. To say our NFL players are disrespecting the flag and the national anthem when they kneel, is to miss the mark entirely on what that flag stands for and what the national anthem stand for. Then to go so far as to say our NFL players are disrespecting our troops, when it was a troop member that told Colin K. that it would not be disrespectful to kneel, after he had sat the first time, and when a 97 year WWII vet went down on his knee in support of the NFL players, and when military vets have come forward and stated emphatically that they fought (and their friends and comrades died) to give our NFL players the freedom to kneel in protest... well that says a lot to me.

As long as we continue to disrespect each other, we then disrespect the flag and what it symbolizes. Kneeling will not and cannot disrespect the flag. Sitting on the flag won't disrespect it. But shooting an unarmed man because he is black, imprisoning a black man for life for a crime that is usually considered a misdemeanor, well, to me that is disrespecting the flag.

I don’t think I’ve touched a flag since school, and I can’t imagine any reason to.
But I’ll definitely continue to comment, especially when I see someone attempting to represent around 300 million people lol

Our flag is not supposed to touch the ground. In the KC picture the flag is strewn on the ground. That's what I take offense too. I also take offense when someone from another country refers to our flag as nothing but a piece of material. eek It's what that piece of material represents.

You're right, according to the Flag Code, our flag is not supposed to touch the ground. What they are doing is wrong, but I agree that it is just a piece of material. What is not a piece of material are how people feel about the flag, how people treat each other. The flag was never intended to be any more than just a symbol of our nation. Symbols only have the importance that we give to them. Around the world, most other countries do not celebrate their flags in the way that the USA celebrates their flag. Most other countries see their flags as mere representations of what their country is, and do not mistake it for their own sense of patriotism and do not mistake it as being more important than the lives in their country. I get more upset when I read the news that another black man was gunned down and killed by the police than I do by someone burning our flag or someone putting the flag on the ground, or hanging the flag over a window as a curtain or nailing the flag to a wall. To me, the people, that the flag represents, are more important. The flag is a symbol, a symbol only, and should in no way be more important than the people it represents. Unfortunately, in the USA the symbolism of the flag has become more important than the very people it represents, as evidenced by the Right being upset about kneeling football players or people being upset about it touching the ground.

I always had a problem with saying the Pledge of Allegiance. It always bothered me, even in elementary school. My allegiance was always to God first, family second, country last, but we were supposed to pledge allegiance to a country that allowed a father to abuse his daughter, that allows an unarmed black man to be gunned down by the police, that allows a man to become president who is on air stating that he just grabs women by the p*ssy, that they let you do that when you are a star, a country that started with the best of intentions but lost its way and includes slavery as a part of its history and continues to institute racism in its very core. How can anyone pledge allegiance to something or someone who is so wrong on so many fronts? Now, that is not to say that I would ever become a spy for a foreign nation, but the majority of us would not. But I do not feel a sense of patriotism in a country that systematically mistreats its people.

I’m interested in why people prioritise a piece of material over the well being of humans! It’s fucking bizarre. Indoctrination causes this kind of obsession.

The point of my picture was the guy who, while wearing a shirt proclaiming that we should all respect the flag, was actually doing the most disrespectful thing you can do to a flag short of using it for toilet paper.

It is a perfect example of conservative hypocrisy, and that was the point.

No way with the FLAG CONTROVERSY would the NFL allow this plus it is not being covered on the news. It is FAKE news. The NFL organization would not allow the disgrace of the flag like that.

If you just say it's fake because you dont like it, like the trumpers do, then it is fake. Simple.
