The capitalization of Country and Flag is the best.  Trump has gone full Sunny Ray.

2017-09-25 01:33:31 PM  
Um...yeah. Well, that idea is severely undercut by the words and actions of those defending his latest manufactured distraction.  Perhaps he should talk to them.
 
2017-09-25 02:14:25 PM  
Trump is doing a good job with this, because (a) he'd making it about him, his very favorite topic and one on which he's an expert and (b) he's distracting us and his administration from his persistent problems with healthcare, hurricane relief to territorial islands, and DPRK nuclear shenanigans, among other things.  His base likes this, Republicans in general like this, and the rest of us can go to hell anyway.

I had a very-republican friend try to pin this "now it is a protest against Trump because of leftists" idea on me and I pointed out that the President made this about himself.  And you know what?  He agreed both specifically and broadly that the President is unable to NOT step in it on most matters.  Huh.

Donald Trump isn't a racist, he just plays one on television and Twitter.  It's easy to see how you could get the wrong idea.

On Monday morning he applauded NASCAR and its supporters for saying "loud and clear" that they won't disrespect the flag and claiming once again that the issue has nothing to do with race.

Can someone remind me how many black NASCAR drivers there are?

I'm guessing that was the compromise to get Jerry to not start popping off about whatever, we will kneel before it starts and unison, and stand as it plays in unison.

No, you light-puce asshat, your REMARKS are not about race per se; but the PROTESTS most certainly and assuredly are about race; they are 110% and unadulteratedly about race and racism; pull your head out of your puckered asshole for one goddamn second and understand that things were happening before you noticed them, continue happening while you notice them, and will continue to happen long after you stop noticing them and move on to something else.

"And when you get on your knee and you don't respect the American flag or the anthem, that's not being treated with respect. ... No, this has nothing to do with race.

And when you refuse to go to the back of the bus and you don't respect the American public transportation system, that's not being treated with respect.  ... No, this has nothing to do with race.

And when you refuse to be satisfied with not being allowed to get married and you don't respect the American system of antimiscongeniation, that's not being treated with respect.  ... No, this has nothing to do with race.

And when you refuse to barred from eating at a lunch counter and you don't respect the American Jim Crow laws, that's not being treated with respect.  ... No, this has nothing to do with race.

But you can't hold a whole school district responsible for the behavior of a few segregated schools. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole segregation system? And if the whole segregation system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Colin Kaepernick - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

No, it's beyond that. The way  he's always saying "did you know X? A lot of people didn't know X. It's amazing that X exists!" I will lay you dollars to donuts he has NO IDEA, for instance, that a) there was never a formal peace treaty with North Korea; b) that Seoul is less than 100 miles from the border with North Korea; or c) that Japan is closer to North Korea than DC is to Mar-a-Lousepit. Because HE hasn't figured it out yet. Therefore it does not exist yet.

Just like in true classic autism, where the patient is completely withdrawn, and a thing only exists for them when it is within their scope of awareness, Trump has NO CLUE that anything goes on outside his little sphere of consciousness. That's way beyond the scope of narcissism seen in the upper-upper-crust where they know the world exists, they just don't care. I suspect Trump is one step from having to keep opening doors to make sure things don't disappear once he no longer sees them.

"No, this has nothing to do with race. I've never said anything about race."

Yeah, you may not have directly said anything about race, but you know what. . .? You didn't need to.  You're the guy who said that most Mexicans are bad people. You're the guy who couldn't decide whether or not David Duke was a good person or not. You're the guy who hesitated to condemn literal Nazis when they were killing people. You're the guy who pardoned the most nakedly racist and crooked sheriff in America because you thought him breaking the law to harass minorities 'was just him doing his job'.  We see why you call white supremacists marching with torches 'fine people' and black athletes kneeling 'sons of biatches'.

And on a similar note, one of your country's commonwealths is currently underwater and you still haven't commented on it. . . probably because Peurto Rick has too many 'bad hombres' and there's too many black people pissing you off.

The attention is still all on Trump...good or bad.   "Why are they kneeling?"  "cuz Trump insulted them".      When Kaepernick started this 2(?) season ago, only a handful of players bothered to follow suit.   No coaches, no owners, no singers, entertainers, cheerleaders, whatever, bothered to follow suit.   Then Trump opens his mouth with the "SOB" comment and the calls for a boycott...suddenly everyone in every stadium is locked arm in arm and kumbaya.    It got big because it was a personal attack on the NFL....and f*ck all to do with Kap's original statement.

Of course it's racially charged.

You just said they did. Do you want them to stand or kneel? Also, isn't this more often called "taking a knee" and not "kneeling"? What they're doing in that picture wouldn't be acceptable at mass.
