My Position on the Kneeling Versus Standing During the National Anthem
Pro sports are back and the debate about kneeling versus standing during the playing of the National Anthem has returned front and center.
I don’t claim to speak for all leftists/liberals, but my position is probably shared by a large number of Americans, perhaps even a majority.
Here’s my opinion:
#1 — If a player chooses to KNEEL during the National Anthem, I respect that decision.
#2 — If a player chooses to STAND during the National Anthem, I respect that decision.
There. See how easy that was?
It’s called freedom of choice. It’s called the right to self-expression. It’s called civil disagreement. It’s called having mutual respect for one another, despite our differences.
This shouldn’t be a difficult concept to grasp.
