Michael Vuong May 28, 2018 Freedom of speech, private organization, no need for Federal interference Michael Vuong May 28, 2018 When was the last time we went to war to defend our freedom? When was the last time Congress properly declared war? JK Banter - games and more May 28, 2018 It says what the NFL says so why do you put a clip of Donald Trump. Jesus Christ like you guys are such snowflakes always having to do something that shows Trump, just because your vote didn’t make the feminist win the election. He’s irrelevant to this video. Roman_Valdax May 28, 2018 This video pushed a certain agenda there are many vets that agree with this ruling but the video decided not to show them Cade Cruthers May 28, 2018 The flap represents way more important things than free speech. By kneeling you are disrespecting every man and women who have fought and died for that flag. There is a reason why you can’t burn a flag. It is a symbol of america and even though it represents everything the united states is about, it is not something up for debate about whether or not you can choose to stand or not. Respect the flag that is giving you the right for free speech. NFL made the right choice here and I fully support them. Top Goat May 28, 2018 The NFL is a business, not a country. If you don't like the rules of the business, don't play. Any regular job has rules as well. You can't walk into your work place and give your boss the finger claiming free speech and expect no consequences. Taylor Jakes May 28, 2018 I dare all you hypocrite liberals to be consistent with your anthem kneeling and kneel for the Canadian anthem for its disgusting and criminal treatment of Indigenous people. Jacob Free May 28, 2018 The NBA has had the same policy about standing for the pledge of allegiance for 23 or so years. Nobody cared before… weird… Shawn Knox May 28, 2018 Yeahh a few texts from a few veterans represents the entirety of the veteran community… Am I the only one who sees the irony in this? Also the NFL is an organization in which they can set up whatever rules they wish. I don't see you bitching when other companies say, block people or demonitize people from their apps or websites respectively because of what said people say, stopping them from using their right to free speech…. Get over yourself BuzzFeed. Mariah Bowen May 28, 2018 There's also a Supreme Court ruling that it's against the constitution to force someone to participate in subjectively "patriotic" acts. This rule is against the law of the land and should be fought! Canundrum Sixnine May 28, 2018 I wonder what they will do to PAYING fans who remain seated in the stands during the anthem? Will Trump insist that they be arrested and subject to Asset forfeiture because the NFL Can't fine them? and hey, we know Trump doesn't like soldiers that were captured, does he also despise people who lost their legs and cannot stand? should they be dragged out of their chairs and set on their stumps? Angel Joel May 28, 2018 I have no problem with peaceful protest against the flag just don't do it around me or I'm gonna knock you out SammySuperier May 28, 2018 1:23 but how is it white supremacy I am white and I would like to know, in detail, how we are oppressing African Americans? And don’t argue I just want facts. Alaina Anderson May 28, 2018 I guess after hearing this, I am not against taking a knee. However, I do think people should at least put there hand on their heart when the pledge is happening. drippy31 May 28, 2018 America hating buzzshit back at it as usual Ookashay May 28, 2018 buzzfeed you got it wrong you can also go into the locker room for the anthem Dynamo Airsoft May 28, 2018 No this is total bs you can’t just protest something not related your JOB in the middle of WORKING you don’t get payed to put a mark and make controversy you get payed to do your JOB let say o worked at Walmart and I started protesting that teachers should get payed more by stepping on the American flag I would be fired you see you can’t just do whatever you want at your job you have a boss who you need to follow orders from and I know that buzzfeed is liberal asf but that could at least show a a counter argument in a simple 1 minute video Callie Weber May 28, 2018 What has happened to all of the pepole who truly care about the U.S.Start being respectful to this country.
