What’s the big deal, take a knee or take a bow, land of the free, home of the brave right? Not that simple. Actions have consequence, especially actions that have lousy timing, that say to those who put their lives on the line each and every day in different ways, “screw you, because of a few bad apples, we are going to ruin the game for fans and publicly spit in your face” Actions have consequence, and you can’t get all Antifa, BLM like on the field, We The Patriots and they the Fans, won’t tolerate it. We will strike back, and do so where it hurts most, the pocketbook. There are now signs in bars that used to show NFL games saying that due to the disrespect shows our country, our flag etc.. those locations will not longer be showing NFL games. They know they will take a financial hit, but they are patriots above all and do not take kindly to this kind of crap.
I have had winding journey in my spiritual life etc.., but even within that, I stood firm in Christ, in God and Country, you honor God, Flag, Anthem, Country, those who gave their life for it past and present. If you don’t stand for at least some of these core things, you stand for nothing. Why? enveloped in that are certain values, certain principles and an understanding that yes we should stand up to wrong, but there is a time, a place, a way. For example marching wearing masks, hiding like cowards, carrying any kind of weapon, ready to destroy property, to attack law enforcement for doing their job and protecting everyone on the scene etc…, calling for the destruction of the nation you live in and benefit from, that says you have no character other than a rotten one, an immature one, nothing good can come out of you, or what you do. Tearing a country apart as those on the Left are doing, rather than One Nation Under God Indivisible etc.. has consequences, and I hate to think if things keep going as they are what those consequences will end up being.
