My wife's very well stated points.
Okay. I have tried to be “good” and stay above “the fray” but, some point, not weighing in seems not only counterproductive, but unpatriotic.

An Open Letter to Sarah Huckabee Sanders,

This morning, you repeatedly told the people of our nation that the President’s incredibly inappropriate comments regarding protests by a football player during the national anthem were only about “respecting the flag” and “the military.”

We have a President who, even before he took office, has made most of us feel that we have to apologize for being Americans. He has made many of us fear for the welfare of our families, our friends, our coworkers and our neighbors. He has made a mockery of the office with his puerile use of social media, used white nationalist pundits as “news” sources while denigrating the bona fide press, defended “protests” by white supremacists and continues to gleefully prod a maniac into threatening nuclear strikes against our country and our allies.

It is not the actions of Colin Kaepernick, his fellow athletes and the NFL that are disrespectful of our country or our flag. Indeed, kneeling during the national anthem is a profoundly respectful way to protest the actions of federal, state and local governments that regularly treat black people and immigrants as if they are disposable. It is, rather, the actions of our President and those who defend even his most heinous words and actions that disrespects this nation and everything it stands for.

If our President cares about the United States of America and its flag as much as you say he does he should immediately resign and if you care about this nation, our military and our flag as much as you claim to, you would do everything in your power to encourage him to do so.

As things currently stand, in my opinion, everyone who cares about this country needs to kneel during the National Anthem in protest of this Presidential Administration and what it stands for.

Sincerely,

Josephine Lawson

Facebook banned gun sales, so now people are selling cans of Hawaiian Punch and throwing the guns in for free. Very expensive Hawaiian Punch.
