Conservatives: Thrice divorced Kim Davis refusing to do her job and issue marriage licenses to LGBTQ people (because lol sanctity of marriage) was an acceptable form of protest, but anybody briefly taking a knee during the national anthem, to protest racism and police brutality, that’s offensive and unpatriotic.
Awesome – and as a side note, Sessions was giving a lecture on ‘free speech’ and either he and/or his staff had 130 students banned from attending the event because they were going to protest his appearance on campus. Does anyone else see any irony here?
Before the Ravens-Steelers game today the PA announcement asked if the stadium wanted to join the Ravens in prayer. The PA said it was a prayer for “kindness, unity, equality, and justice for all Americans.” The team took a knee and prayed and then stood up for the national anthem and the crowd very audibly booed when they took a knee to pray.
They booed them even though they stood for the national anthem. It was NEVER about the national anthem. It’s about shutting down Black voices.
