DSC_0084 In the news: NFL QB’s protest of national anthem riles some veterans

Many comments here.

Random thoughts:

Many vets here are claiming to have served to protect rights. How does this work? Do the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization?

Black people were still riding at the back of the bus after the big WWII victory. Women did not have full voting rights at the end of WWI.

At least one mention of freedoms granted by the constitution- the constitution does not grant rights or freedoms- it places limits on government.

Do groupthink obedience/conformity drills like the pledge of allegiance or standing for the national anthem get in the way of asking questions?

Do high levels of reverence for the flag lead to situations like the Vietnam War?

“…standing for the national anthem is a way for NFL players to honor the military.”
