"We should be looking at every way we can to bring our country together, not looking at ways to divide it," Sanders went on

Yeah, 45 is sure doing a bang-up job at that.

She said that.  She actually said those words.

How many times can I post "RIP Poe's Law" in one day?!

Oddly enough, my father, a Vietnam vet, who was a trainer for several tours as well, and who served to get his pension even, is in full support of folks who protest, because THAT'S what he was raised to believe that he was fighting for. He came to a much more cynical view towards the end, but he still is the sort who doesn't get pissed off when he sees them protest actions taken by his government, because that's what we're SUPPOSED to do when we see something that we consider injustice. Trying to get our government to do better is kind of the citizen's duty...

I got to watch two veterans argue for about an hour Sunday afternoon about the whole thing.  They were drinking, which made it even better.  Eventually they both just left angry.

Well, the people who don't get this issue are the same ones that wanted to pass a goddam Constitutional Amendment banning the burning of the American flag. They don't seem to understand that the symbol that is the American flag stands for the right to burn it, or kneel in protest before it. But they'd be goddam pissed off if you took their right to fly a symbol of treason morphed into a symbol of racism.

I think that the fact we are free to burn the American flag, or that we can kneel in protest before the American flag and national anthem, is something we should be proud of as a nation.

Yeah, the NFL is run by gambling.

Neither side is getting what they want here.

If you're a veteran who says things like, "I didn't serve my country and risk my life so a bunch of people back home could __________," you may need to consider the possibility that you weren't actually serving your country.

> Are we not doing "Phrasing" anymore?

You mean making statements with covert dog whistles that only the base can hear? Nope, they want even those in the base that are hard of hearing or understanding to get the message.

The people who don't understand it can't be made to understand it. It causes cognitive dissonance in their heads to try to think that doing something like this can also be patriotic. They simply can't reconcile it in any way, shape or form. It will not compute, not ever. You can't explain it to them in a way that will get through that feedback loop.

This subject was bright up today when I was securing a local Army recruitment office. The leading officer was going off about how he didn't like players kneeling, whilst revealing he was a Trump stormed. The 2nd officer in charge was pretty quiet about it, and after having various conversations with him, I could tell he was a progressive kinda guy. Yesterday when I was securing the Marines office, nobody talked about it. I still have to secure the Navy, then Air Force offices, and I'm curious as hell of what I'll hear.

Huckybooboo, I have news for ya, hon. It IS a "black and white issue". It's the definition of one.

So neo nazis protesting = comments that there are some fine people there.

People silently protesting during the anthem = fire those sons of biatches!

Probably the first truthful thing out of her mouth since she became WH press secretary.
I mean, she most likely does see it as a Black and White issue.

It's funny how so many people developed opinions over this NFL flag thing lately, when they never really bothered with it (or cared about it) before.

It's almost as if it doesn't really matter why they're taking a knee, because Donnie Two Scoops decided to plant his flag on that particular battlefield and his dumbshiat brigade is showing up to die on that battlefield despite being drastically outnumbered and outgunned.

The concept that drives kneeling for the Star Spangled Banner is the same one that allows Richard Spencer yammer about how awesome white power is, or what makes flying the Rebel Flag perfectly legal.

These clueless dipshiats don't realize that if they wanted to legally punish the kneelers, that opens them up to legal action for flying the "Stars'n'Bars".    Or the Scots flag on the back of their Mercury Villager.

I feel like I'm living in a reality constructed in the darkest thoughts of the lovechild of Andy Borowitz and the Onion who fancied itself a conservatives humorist

A grown woman who is a governor's daughter and currently works for the Whitehouse is innocent of using politically charged speech....

She's either stupid beyond measure or doing it on purpose.  You pick which is better.

We understand that was what she meant. That being said as a spokesperson she should be quicker on her perverbial feet when discussing things.
