Good luck pimping for a draft dodger and claiming to be a patriot. Square that one.

I agree with that as well. I also think it should be against the law to come to this country from another one, and then post your previous country's flag. I see it all of the time. I'm like, if your country was so great, than why are you here?

I'd rather have a draft dodger, than a pos like Hillary that actually left Americans to die on foreign soil, and then tried to cover it up!

I am not sure which draft dodger you are referencing. However, I am sure that I am not pimping for anyone.

He was even raised by white people so can't use that "black culture" template on his past. So yall falsely ran with the "disrespecting the troops" narrative and that also backfired because it was so off target. It's hilarious to see how people are clawing and scratching for anything legit excuse for their epic strawmanning and snowflaking.
Projection as usual. Just who do you think it's backfiring on?

And what is Trump doing for the americans held prisoner in N Korea?

He literally blamed Obama for Otto Warmbiers death yet he has done jack sh*t for the other prisoners.

Explain that mister bonespurs.

Or hanging from the rafters or on the field. I try to do this but as I've said I've seen customers sit during the anthem at hockey games.

Oh, I might quit. If the Bears can't stop losing, I'll have no choice.
ROFLMAO! You have no choice... the Bears just lost to a candy bar in a battle of wits:

That's your disconnect right there. MLK pissed off people somewhat fierce. The idea that all right-thinking people would naturally be on his side is after-the-fact thinking.

Protest will, to use your phrase, **** people off. It needs to. Those in power aren't moved by their goodness of their hearts.

Right now? Trump's cohorts. The NFL didn't back down. You think the fans who overlooked the occasional wifebeater or drunk driver as long as the team did well have staying power for a boycott?
