Trump, Pence have a double standard

admin

first_imgRecently, a number of football players have been taking a knee during the national anthem. In response, many people are telling us that these players are disrespecting the military and the people who fought and died for us.The problem is that these protesters are telling us that taking a knee has nothing to do with the military or disrespecting the flag. My understanding is that they are protesting the treatment of minorities in the United States, which they have every right to do whether I agree or not.Isn’t the players’ stated intent more important than the biased interpretations of President Trump and Vice President Pence?This protest has been going on for over a year with very little commentary.

I don’t see the president talking about the disrespectful act of carrying the Confederate flag.Hundreds of thousands of U.S. soldiers died fighting an army carrying the Confederate flag.To some people, the Confederate flag is a symbol of slavery. Where is the outrage from our president on this issue? Where are Republicans on the Confederate flag issue?It does seem that minorities are the victims of a double standard, certainly when it comes to the president and the vice president.John DworakRotterdamlast_img
