It’s difficult to see the NFL’s #TakeTheKnee protests as anything other than just another confused, opportunistic slam on President Trump, rather than a protest against … well, anything worth protesting. That’s why President Trump criticized Colin Kaepernick-inspired protests as “total disrespect of our heritage” Friday in Alabama.
"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. He is fired. He's fired!’" Trump said to applause, at a rally for Luther Strange in Alabama’s special Senate election. "Total disrespect of our heritage, a total disrespect of everything that we stand for."
But these kneeling demonstrations are not about disrespecting the flag or the nation, we are told; they are about the alleged systemic racism in America and police brutality.
