Why was he kneeling? Was he praying? Was he bowing to America? Did he take a knee to show that he believes himself to be unworthy to stand proudly as an American? I always thought it was stupid when Kaperpnick started this nonsense because kneeling for centuries has been a way to show allegiance to a leader or country and it could also be seen that the person kneeling sees himself as a servant, something less than and not worthy to stand in the presence of someone or something great.



I see kapernick and this fencing guy as weak people that see themselves as victims.

A better protest would be to stand with a fist raised in defiance ready to fight for what you believe is right.

Kneeling is for wimps.

Kaepernick started kneeling as a suggestion from a temmate who was a vet that served in Iraq.

He’s a pretty good fencer, looking for his moment of Fame. It was a Team Gold Win, not a personal Win.
He and all of the Team made a commitment to each other and the Olympic Committee- No Politics.

His word isn’t worth much, and he has no respect for his Team or what he committed to do.
Another ME ME ME ME ME “star”. His moment of Glory - a knee because Orange Man BAD.

Calm down. He said nothing about your orange Jesus and his spitting on POWs and mocking the handicapped.
