I didn't know people thought that if you took a knee then you hated America. Taking a knee is disrespectful otherwise Kaep wouldn't have gotten permission from a Veteran before doing it. I still don't agree that a single Veteran can give away free kneeling cards but that doesn't matter to me anymore. The message is more important.

Its america you free to do what you want. You can kneel stand fart like it has no effect on anyone If it bothers anyone maybe they dont believe in america's first amendment. Maybe they hate america maybe they disrespecting the flag. Thats what i now believe i just made it up but who cares its america or is it not. I dont understand who made up these rules on what respectful and whats disrespectul. Veterans choose to join the military. Like do veterans really say im joining the military everyone better stand in america cuz im in the military. Like wth are is anyone talking bout. This the problem everyone full of the head in their butt. Brees has an opinion i disagree i still like brees its his right. But it aint more than opinion we all have a million of em.

With that said police should probably stop killing blac... oops im sorry americans in such a disrespectful manner. Maybe veterans should take up for bla.. i mean the americans they care so much about.

It’s the internet. Social media will always add fuel to the fire.

See how quickly Drew is getting dragged?
You think the reason he's getting dragged is because of the internet? The internet is just a means of conveyance of information. It does not create issues or cause people to do something. It's just allows easier access and collaboration. It's not fuel to the fire; it is the fire.

It's good Drew spoke his mind. Now he needs to listen and learn and adjust his viewpoint, and accept why this is so important.
Why is there an assumption that Drew has not heard the arguments in favor of kneeling before football games during the national anthem? This has been an issue for many years.

It is possible to have listened to other viewpoints and still personally disagree.

Brees should have just dodged the question and gave a politically correct response... the “reporter” baited him and he went for it.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this blows up really big and bad, and Brees decides to retire before next season.

This is the world we live in now.

I will never understand how people interpret this as hating America. If you kneel during the anthem to protest police violence doesn't that show you want to make America a better place? It seems like that would be showing love for a country not hate.
I will never understand how people can’t see that kneeling during the anthem is perceived by many, many people as extremely disrespectful and as hating the symbols of their nation and therefore hating said nation. And having been told over and over for three years how this act is received by many it seems like one would choose a different means to protest police violence that doesn’t offend large swaths of the population, and risk losing support for their important cause.

If i was Brees I’d walk away from the game and let Winston lead the team to a 4-12 year. That will make Jenkins kamara Thomas Sanders happy. What a world we live in when a guy cant pass an opinion about the national anthem without getting called a racist!!!
Lmao you think DREW IS THE REASON WERE WINNING? I thought it was a team effort 🙄 last I check we went 5-0 with a mediocre game manger without Drew Winston is the definition of a gun slinger no worse than Drew when he arrived we’d be fine with this defense and talent on O

Your perception of his protest has absolutely nothing to do with the meaning of his protest

Or SUPERSTARS AND VERY VoCAL PLAYERS IN THIS LEAUGE .
This can turn pretty ugly pretty quick real quick I’m black and I feel like I’m this time Drew should’ve shut up kept his comments to himself. This is much deeper than anything this locker room has ever been through
Drew was asked a question and he answered it. He didn't insult Kap as Lebron intimated. He didn't say anything other than how he feels about the flag and anthem. It seems like a mob is forming that says it's not enough to be angry but everybody has to be angry in a certain way an approved way. I saw this murder and it hurt my soul. But I ain't gonna check in with you or anybody else about how I will respond to it.

No one is mad that he loves the country and the flag. People are mad that in a time like this he would deflect from the purpose of the protest, which has been stated for years wasn’t disrespectful. All Drew has to say was I have my own beliefs on the protest and I stand by them.
Bro, are you even on the internet? Brees was being chastised because he made a "generic statement" yesterday.

Got to love the days of social media, where when you have a problem with someone, you call them out publicly. I feel like we're living in a real-life, drama reality show. That's my problem with this. Brees probably shouldn't have shared his opinion on this, again. He was definitely baited. Jenkins has every right to disagree, but he shouldn't be calling this kind of attention to our team. It's one thing to state an opinion, but to put a teammate under this kind of microscope, it's only going to go viral and cause strife. I can see both of their sides, and I think they are both legitimate. Regardless of what I think, and what they think, we just don't need this, teammates turning on each other, and especially putting it out for public viewing. But that's just my opinion.

To be clear though, Drew said he'd never agree with someone "disrespecting" the flag - i.e., he equates players kneeling to disrespect rather than protesting an injustice. So black players rightfully feel he doesn't "get it."

And Drew doesn't have to kneel. No one's ever said that. But I can see how black players view his comments as disrespectful of their experiences.

What does this even mean? Apply it to this situation, please.
It's only PC when it's something you don't agree with. Kap wasn't PC so he got can

I wouldn't expect you to understand. That's the problem.

This is very different.
No it's not. This is absurd. A discussion usually involves listening to the other person's words to understand where he is coming from. In today's social and mainstream media - especially in the realm of celebrity or politicians, "open discussion" is only allowed if you agree with the narrative being pushed. Otherwise, they resort to name calling, claiming racism, bigotism, and any other means of attack they see fit.

Burning the flag is anarchy. It does not convey "I'm upset with social inequality or social injustice". It conveys "I hate this country and everything it stands for".

Looting and rioting are anarchy doesn't convey "I'm grieving over something almost everyone else in America views as malicious and appalling". It conveys "I don't give a sheet about seeking justice, I'm all about opportunity".

Neither of those actions do a damn thing to further discussion or inspire positive change. They don't help a single iota. Their rhetoric is what is divisive. 99.5% of Americans who saw what happened to George Floyd are appalled and outraged.

If Lebron, MT, Jenkins, and whomever wants to have a fit that Drew said he will never agree with anyone who disrespects the flag or our country, let them. They have the right to. That's the great thing about the 1st amendment - not that it protects the 99 people who agree, but that it guarantees protection and a voice for the 1 who thinks differently. If Jenkins and others wish to enter into discussion, perhaps they should study a little history. What the police are doing is not disproportionate to black people; only the mainstream media's reporting is.

Seems to me the media is very misleading. Also seems, if I were black and lived in a place like Baltimore, I'd be holding those I elected a little bit more accountable for the social inequality and injustice in my neighborhood - as they've had black mayors and house/senate reps for decades, who ain't did a damn thing. In other words, I do believe the "outrage" (and I use quotation marks, because nothing says I'm outraged like looting from Macy's and burning down black owned small businesses) is directed in the wrong direction.

If they want change, start with the damn representatives you voted for. Use your vote and hold them accountable. USE the system - which is built precisely to give you the power to make these types of change by the power of your vote and voice (not bricks, Molotov cocktails, and 2x4's), and not by deriding anyone who is offended by something other than what you find offensive, such as disrespecting the flag or country.

Oh wow, I see you're a fan of the Ailes network.
