The First Amendment. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances”. We all understand this, RIGHT?
Certainly we do, which is why I am sick and tired of everyone, including you Mr. President, and you Missy MacArthur who say; “I don’t agree with what he says, but I respect his right to say it.” We all as American’s, if you didn’t know, respect the First Amendment to the Constitution. It is the law of the land. It is the basis on which our society functions, it is why we don’t shoot every bastard we disagree with, it is why America has the potential to be great.
It is why, when someone does something, or says something that I strongly disagree with, I stand on my hind legs and the First Amendment and state my case. Merely saying, “I respect his right to say it”, gives weight to what he says or does.
If you disagree with something or someone, Mr. President and Missy MacArthur, take a stand, comfortably, on the First Amendment, which;BTW, has no political agenda; and say what you really think. Mr. Kaepernick has the protection of the Constitution to say what he thinks, but he has no right to disrespect the American Flag, the National Anthem, or the majority of his team. You only spread the divide, Mr. President and Missy MacArthur when you choose your words so carefully that they confuse and misguide.
