I've posted abut this on the NFL thread but the way a symbolic protest by a few players is being portrayed as some sort of slight on the American military, victims of 9/11 and the entire western way of life amongst other things is disgraceful and bizarre. It seems freedom of speech isn't the inalienable right it once was.
Colin Kaepernick must be terrifying to the U.S. Establishment. A successful, black vegan who believes in left wing politics. It's no wonder they are desperate to smear and alienate the guy.
