No, didn't say "hate" but he has "no PRIDE" though. "My pride however has been cut short"

Funny should suddenly care NOW about using "hate" considering how the left accuses anyone who dares disagree with them on most subjects as "repubs HATE (fill in the blanks).

Kneeling can EITHER be an action showing respect OR disrespect.

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.
many don't realize this. It must make Trump proud to see those acknowledging their station in life compared to his own. Hard work prevails.

I wonder if they think the same or just some our folks. In other countries standing or kneeling for a belief is not frowned upon. Many countries do not have the freedom or have suffered much to obtain it. They get it. Some of the crazy stuff that goes on in other countries when they demonstrate for change are eye openers. We after how many years, know itís not a disrespect for our fallen or our flag.

Kneeling outside of the country while our National Anthem is playing. Sounds like a coward surrendering. Or maybe he was waiting for his teammate to turn around so he can congratulate him in his own special way.

Well I'll be damned. If he tried that nonsense in Montana he might just get body slammed by an irate Trump supporter.
