These Idiots 'taking a knee' during the Playing of their National Anthem, is just as disrespectful as the jackases that go around burning Flags. They're Intentionally trying to Incite violence and piiss on all the brave soldiers that risked their Lives so that these snot-nosed, pompous, (not to mention misguided) youths could have the right to bitch-slap them for their Sacrifices, and Spit all over them and their graves!! They really should be Arrested, these lowlife instigators'. They are fanning the Flames of Hatred, for their own dark personal desires and hatefillled aspirations.
