https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/28/sports/football/nfl-trump-anthem.html It is clear that the nation as a whole while maybe not supporting firing don't support kneeling during the anthem. Latest was the fans of GB not joining arms as asked by the players. In the meeting the players and league claim it was not us vs Trump but to the world and fans it was clearly that! What this event has done though in my opinion is establish that free speech is for all and that means others have the right to express their displeasure of an act or protest or speech without being labeled racist etc...... We are facing a interesting event being planned. ANTIFI is plotting Civil War to start with nationwide protests on Nov 4th. This according to some sources, which mainly lean right. https://www.infowars.com/antifa-plans-civil-war-to-overthrow-the-government/ If true then anyone aligning with them are committing acts of aggression against the US which is not free speech. So maybe just maybe the good that came out of this is the ripping away of the nonsense that you have to accept and agree with protesters or be labeled a racists. It just may if the ANTIFI goal is in fact true the ability of our nation to deal with an internal threat properly!
