All Parker did was answer the question

I don’t see the issue. He didn’t say people shouldn’t be allowed to kneel. He only said that he didn’t agree with that as a form of protest and explained why.

When you protest, does everyone have to agree with you now?

Agreed. If I were a pro athlete, I would definitely have a prepared statement where I just fill in the blanks.

The problem here is what Brees said came off as really tone deaf since the kneeling had jack shit to do with the flag or the military. He completely spun it into something it wasn't and that's what he's getting smacked around for by other athletes.

So you should only protest in ways that make no waves?

"Disrespecting the troops" seems like and extremely malleable and arbitrary standard to me. If kneeling, which Kaep specially said he was doing out of respect for the troops, is disrespectful to the troops or flag - then why isn't "Home of the CHIEFS"? Who makes these rules? Oh wait, I know who.

When did anyone say that protests need to make no waves?


Your passive aggressive bullshit of ĒWho makes the rules? Oh I know.Ē isnít fucking needed. You quit DC because it upsets you so much, so leave it the fuck out of the lounge.

You either misread my comment or didnít understand it.

I donít see a reason to be offended by Breesís comment. He didnít say people have to protest a certain way. He simply said he disagreed with this method.

Is he not allowed to disagree with it?

Jim Brown says the samr thing. But he's black so its ok. Most won't kneel because its worthless to do and stupid.

Malcom Jenkins just ripped Drew Brees a new asshole.

That team is going to have problems this season.

Go **** yourself. It's passive aggressive because we're not supposed to post politics in the lounge - even in an obviously political thread like this.

My message was clear - it's complete BS that Kaep kneeling is deemed offensive enough to get right-wing idiots like you beside themselves with rage, while "home of the CHIEFS" is perfectly ok. It's completely arbitrary - and only happens because white people make the rules. Is that clear enough for you dickhead?

Yeah. Spoke in the past tense about being friends and having respect for him, then finished it off with a nice 'shut the fuck up'.

Did he offer an alternative?

Is this really the message that needs to be sent right now? Why pick this battle, now of all times?

Drew should take them on a tour of all the homes he’s built for the impoverished minorities down there, then show them a statement from his accountant regarding all of his charity contributions
