According to Donald Trump, “If Colin Kaepernick Doesn’t Like America… GIT OUT!!”
So what? He got down on one knee during the National Anthem. Big Deal!
This whole issue isn’t whether or not Collin Kaepernick likes America. What people are bitching about is, he got down on one knee instead of standing at attention.
I get down on both knees when I pray. Does this mean I don’t like God? No it doesn’t! Every time I walk into a Catholic Church, I genuflect, by getting down on one knee and showing my respect for God. If this is respectful to God, why do the critics think it’s disrespectful to the flag?
The biggest whiner and complainer is Rob Lowe.
Dear @NFL Any player wants to boycott the anthem on 9/11 should be asked to remain in the locker room until kick off. It’s not their moment.

Sorry, Mr. Rob Lowe. I don’t see it your way. What I see is an American exercising his rights. Whether or not Collin Kaepernick is right or wrong is immaterial. The issue is, he dropped to one knee instead of standing at attention. Many people, including you, are whining and complaining about something that’s none of their business.
Collin Kaepernick can get down on one knee during the National Anthem, because this is his right as an American citizen. Rob Lowe can complain about it, because this is his right. But to deny NFL players the right to exercise their rights is something that should not be tolerated.
If someone wants to scratch their balls during the playing of the National Anthem, so be it. It’s their right to do so. Personally, I wouldn’t do this. But if they itch during the National Anthem, I may reconsider. This is, in no way, disrespectful to the flag. If they itch, I’m going to scratch them.
People in the U S have rights. Everyone has the right to show respect to the flag in a way they choose, provided they do nothing illegal or in bad taste. Likewise, people have the right to their own opinion. I think I’ll exercise this right by saying,
“Rob Lowe, in my opinion, you’re an idiot!”
