i don't think it's a musical thing

Issa joke

Also my actual response is "I disagree that kneeling or raising a fist during the national anthem is actually disrespectful in any way" and that's clearly a dead-end argument with CowDung, so.

it’s also pretty sad if paying “proper” respect to a song is a really important thing on anyone’s mind

I refuse to stand for the national anthem because I love this country so much and refuse to bow to nationalistic gate keepers’ f-cked up ideas on how someone should express their patriotism

But yeah, the anthem is just a song. The flag is just a piece of cloth. The Bible is just a book. We'd be a lot better off just generally if people would stop idolizing the actual symbols so much, and work on living up to the ideals they're supposed to represent.

I guess you just aren't patriotic enough to represent your country on a national team then...

Actually, I think that raising a fist while standing is more respectful than kneeling...

there’s that patriotic gate keeping we all know and love


this is the same bullsh-t that makes a politician afraid to be seen without an anerican flag pin on
as if that pin means they are patriotic and not just using it as a shield

The president got elected with the slogan "America Isn't Great." Is that showing enough respect to the country to be its leader?

'Isn't great' doesn't equal 'bad'...
1 yr ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 6/9/18 - 1:24:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
it isn't great though
1 yr ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 6/9/18 - 1:25:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but it can be great- - if people vote for the right person...

"What do you think of America, athlete representing America?"
"Ehh, could be better. It's not great."

Sounds about right, actually. Anybody thinks that America is the absolute best country in the world needs to share their drugs with me.

Playing for their national team? Of course.
