Kneeling because DRUMPF grabbed 2 scoops of the pussy

Kneeling because fuck America n shit

Kneeling because your rightful place as a lesser spotted Caucasian cuck is on your knees in the corner while your wifes bull does his job.

None of these are exactly compelling reasons to look like a virtue signalling idiot .
How would you like people to peacefully and non destructively protest in a way that gathers enough attention then?


How is it worse than ultra nationalists who spout pro US propaganda whilst flying confederate flags at the same time?


Maybe it's just the chemtrails which is creating all these violent reactions to peaceful protests.

Maybe people should be looking at intent rather than the subjective meaning that they have attached to an action?

Aren't both confederate flag supporters and national anthem kneelers allowed the same consideration of considering intent before condemnation?
I agree with you, but therein lies the problem. The people waving the confederate flag aren't given the same consideration. If you ask their opponents, the only reason they do that is because they are racists. The only reason for erecting Confederate monuments is to remind the black people of what their place is, actual intent be damned.

They are given the same consideration by like minded people, much like the kneelers. They are condemned by their detractors, much like the kneelers.
