1. He's a Ranger. I get it.

I don't think he meant harm to his teammates, and I don't think he was staging a counter protest.

A flag flies in front of my home, 24/7 and I do stand for the national anthem. I stand because the flag stands for the Constitution, which is what our troops actually swear to defend.

The Constitution gives football players the right to kneel, just like it gives white supremacists the right to march around holding tiki torches. As long as you are peaceful and not advocating violent overthrow, you enjoy that right.
