Re: Take a Knee Updated

If your idea of patriot is John Kerry you belong with the likes of Benedict Arnold.

Those same hippies that protested the war and burned the flag also spat on returning soldiers.

Re: Take a Knee Updated

I appreciate everyone's comments and respect your opinion.

My main objection to all of this is the huge hypocrisy shown by the left progs when it comes to these so-called displays of free speech. The progs are the FIRST to demean any speech that "offends" them. When they practice what they preach I will then consider softening my stance. Until then, I will hold fast on my stance.

Re: Take a Knee Updated

I don't consider insulting millions of loyal patriots both dead and living as a right. Denigrating the word right by defining what these losers are doing as such is the same as saying someone has the right to steal or murder.

I picked up Colorado State football season tickets...it's still about the game in most schools. We'll see if that holds true in the future.
First amendment rights do not exist in the workplace. The first amendment only prevents the government from infringing on those rights. The only reason the entertainers are getting away with it is because it fits their prog agenda. Recall when the Cowboys wanted to honor the slain Dallas officers? They were denied.

Re: Take a Knee

Share away, gentleman.

Here is another reminder of proper use of the term "taking a knee".

Take a Knee Updated

I am not the author of this, I copied it with permission from another forum.


TAKE A KNEE

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don't know where that is, just Google it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won't be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience. Then take a knee.

Then, take one at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces...the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.

Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. from Khe San to Saigon... Anywhere will do. REAL Americans died in all those jungles. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat... Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress... Your number won't be printed on it unless your number is up! You'll need to stay hydrated but there won't be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You're on your own.


There's a lot of places to take a knee. Real Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That's what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.


While you're on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken...but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains...every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.


No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans...just American men and women...delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us...blazing a path so you would have 'the right to take a knee.'


You haven't an inkling what it took to get you where you are; but your 'protest' is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is issued to another...


If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we'll both kneel before Almighty God. We'll thank Him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We'll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We'll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We'll pray for liberty and justice for all...because He is the one who provides those things.


And there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave It goes like this...

"GOD BLESS AMERICA!"
