That's not how rights work.

You don't get to tell someone when, where or how they can protest.

They have the right to peaceably protest, when, where and how they choose. They do that knowing there may be consequences.

You do have the right to disagree with when, where and how they protest. But you *do not* have the right to tell them they cannot protest, simply because you disagree with it.

That's not how rights work.


As a US Marine Vet, I , and others, served so you and they could have those rights. I will defend their right to peaceably protest, and I will defend your right to disagree with them.

They have the right to protest by kneeling during the national anthem. You have the right not to watch or support the players or teams.


So. Call me a ' snowflake', tell me I'm 'no true Marine', or claim I'm 'triggered', all you want. That is your right and I served so you could do so.

*That's* how rights work.


By the way, while you're complaining that NFL players are 'disrespecting' the flag, millions of Americans are currently without power, running water or communications, thanks to the recent hurricanes and being all but ignored by the president in favor of complaining about NFL players, North Korea and imaginary stories about Clinton. Your fellow Americans are being systematically killed for the color of their skin, daily.


Where's your outrage over *that*?
