I wonder if she stands up when the anthem plays on TVs or does she keep sitting there on her couch?

In all fairness, she's probably incapable of getting off her couch...

According to Sharon, the flag "is a symbol of imperfect people in an imperfect country always trying to do the right thing."

First up: I'm trying to hold back the tears here, i'm just... it's so upsetting to me that she would call the USA imperfect. The lack of patriotism there is... It really upsets me :(

Second: Is she aware that it's precisely that imperfection that the players are trying to highlight, and get people to "do the right thing"?

Do you think she has any clue why they're protesting, and what about? Or do you think she thinks they're just hating on the flag because they hate America, for no reason?

These are the same people lamenting "Political correctness".  They don't object to political correctness, they object that PC doesn't cater to THEM and THEIR sensibilities.  It's all "don't be a crybaby snowflake, can't you take a joke?" when someone else objects to something but "why are you so mean?" when someone hits one of their soft points.

Fark your feelings.

I'm guessing there's about a 95% chance that she's used the word "snowflake" to insult someone on the left within the last 6 months.

I'm kinda stunned no one's done a "F**k your feelings" shirt aimed at Trump supporters.

Yeah he's... what is he trying to hide? Man that guy freaks me out. The really scary part is that apparently he's like one of the smartest people alive. Like freakishly smart. Probably smart enough to kill a bunch of hobos without anybody catching on. Man I hope O'Rourke takes him out in the election. Not holding my breath tho.

Funny, I seem to remember a certain rich presidential candidate running a fairly successful campaign based on the idea that the US has become something of a hellhole and needs to be "made great again."

I guess that rich guy is ungrateful and hates America. =(

Here's the thing, Sharon.  A lot of these imperfect people are not trying to do the right thing.  They are trying to do right by themselves.  Also, Santa Claus isn't real.

On the one hand any police encounter could wind up with you shot to pieces and dead, on the other hand this fragile white woman. It's really quite equivalent.

The first Democrat to call these people "hypocritical faketriots" (in those exact words), will be the first to handily win come 2020. Yeah I know Hillary called them deplorable, but that's a $500 word when a 50 cent word like the one I said would've cut them to the bone.

The real question is how on earth did that C-Span reporter keep from busting up laughing at her during her stupid diatribe?

I would have at least snerked and chortled "Get over it, Trump won".

Jesus, of all the problems in the world - starvation, war, disease, slavery, child abuse, political persecution, and more - and your biggest complaint is a man you will never speak to didn't take the body posture you wanted when a song played. Your life must be amazingly good if this actually rises to the level of something worth complaining about.

I have no idea why they're protesting, nor do I really care.  I hate football and whatever is going on there has zero bearing on my life.  That being said, if they want to make a statement have at it..

Is this another case of a protest that doesn't target the actual institution that is contributing the injustice so we can "feel" better about "doing something"?  Seems like.

That is one confirmed case of somebody claiming they boycott the NFL. Let's see how the ratings do.

Also, remember when boycotting Ivanka's brand was just the meanest thing anyone had ever done?

Where are Democrats in all this?  Nowhere I can see, and some might call that smart politics, but letting the GOP trip over its own dick for the last 8 years has gotten us nowhere.


We have no real moral or political opposition to Trump.
 
2017-09-25 12:42:58 PM  
Oh good grief. I'm in the middle of dealing with family members who have lost everything in hurricanes/flooding, the GOP wants to take healthcare away from millions, we're on the brink of nuclear war and this woman is sad & hurt that football players kneel during the National Anthem. Try caring about someone other than yourself for once, lady!!
