    The NFL has a tradition of taking a knee

    The president is at war with the NFL and NBA over national anthem protests. Now NASCAR has put in it's two cents by saying they will fire anyone who doesn't stand for the anthem. Now I for one am shocked that people who dress like this : wouldn't be sympathetic to minorities. Rather than shit up the shitpost thread I figured this topic needed it's own discussion, if it needs to be merged with the Kaepernick thread so be it, but with Trump going to tard mode I wasn't sure if it fit.

    I'm particularly curious what the military members think about this.

    His way of dress triggers you?
    You are a strange fellow.

      It's just how he starts "discussions".

      I was wearing faded and stained Carhartt's, a green pocket T, boots, a sweat stained old ball-cap, 3 knives, one pistol, and 2 extra mags in a olive drab carrier yesterday while out and about, topped off with a camo shell-jacket, and at one point a single-shot .410 shotgun, surrounded by my sons carrying high-powered rifles...

      That's heart-attack level triggering...but I've still got all of my teeth, so not quite.

          Oh, and to be on-topic, Trump loves drama, so he assumes everybody else does too. And he wouldn't be far from wrong. He has to keep his brand in the news, keep the base stirred up, and the news-media loves drama and controversy. It sells more ad air time so makes them money.

          Plus, the ego-driven talking heads of all ideological stripe love it even more.

          Trump is doing what Trump does, being a media-attention whore among media attention whores.

          He's exposing the whole, sick, dysfunctional (from getting anything practical done) way that our elected officials and society in general is today.

          He's a poster boy for a broken system.

          Perfect, IMO. Maybe people will pay attention...

              It doesn't trigger me, I said I don't find it surprising that he doesn't sympathize with their cause.

                  I'm not sure you knew what you were trying to say, but I think it was something like "all people that wear boots, big-ass buckles, and cowboy hats are racists."

                    I have no real problem with him stirring shit, but when he calls for boycotts as a person of governmental authority it crosses a line.

                      And, now you're doubling down on being a bigot. Excellent.

                        I wouldn't say ALL of them, but under normal circumstances the percentage chance would be better than 50/50. What does being ex-military have to due with it??

                          I know sarcasm is sometimes hard to read in a post, but don't be that fucking retarded.

                            Naw, he gets to have an opinion just like everybody else, President or not. If he starts proposing legislation, that might be different.

                            He's stirring shit, too, so WTBD? Creating and amplifying chaos, it's what he does.

                            Just wait 'til we bomb the shit out of NK, then you will see some real shit-stirring...
