Political Humor Only Please

Funny because Trump is losing his s***.

False premise, "the Police" aren't racist. Duh.

Ha ha ha. Some joke (specially the reference to shining shoes). Wonder where it came from, anyway:

Nike online sales increase 31 per cent since Colin Kaepernick ad reveal: study

https://globalnews.ca/news/4435974/nike ... ales-rise/

I love to see people burning their sneakers.

PS. Anyone outraged about kneeling during the anthem should say something about guys standing up and parading with Nazi flags. I guess it's just a matter of "free" speech as opposed to free body..

When they're players on a football team and start parading around with Nazi flags some might have an issue with it.
Like the employers and people who pay to see a game.
Otherwise they are protected just as the kneelers would be outside of their place of employment.

for those who may be confused

" Employees don't have a Constitutional right to free speech or freedom of expression at work. The Constitution's right to free speech only applies when the government is trying to restrict it. Even then, it's not absolute. ... So employers are generally free to restrict employee speech, at least while they are at work."

The players are peacefully protesting in silence. I guess you think that people give up all their Constitutional rights when they are employed. Pray tell what else you think they give up. And the President heads the government and he is trying to infringe upon their rights and get them fired. He can be forgiven for his ignorance.

What is it you dont understand....about employee rights.

lets start with uniforms

"Players are not permitted to wear bandannas, stockings, or other unapproved headwear anywhere on the field,
even if such items are worn under the helmets. "
https://deadspin.com/the-nfls-uniform-p ... 1722224360

mmm would this fall under freedom of expression.

maybe something else

"Examples of celebrations to be allowed under the new guidelines:

» Using the football as a prop after a touchdown
» Celebrating on the ground
» Group demonstrations


The relaxed rules aren't a free for all. Offensive demonstrations, celebrations that are prolonged and delay the game, and celebrations directed at an opponent, will still be penalized, the letter said, in order continue "sportsmanship, clean competition, and setting good examples for young athletes."
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... or-players


guess who defines what offensive is, its not the players.

maybe its still not clear

NOPE, YOU STILL CAN'T DO THIS ...
Violent or offensive imagery

Players will still be penalized if they perform what can be perceived as a violent act, such as a throat slash or pretending to shoot a gun. The rule even extends to the use of an imaginary bow and arrow, as Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and New England Patriots receiver Brandin Cooks have done in the past.

http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post ... tion-rules

Offensive imagery,,,mmm I wonder what that might mean....

Looks like its very clear they can only do what the owners ie their employer allow.

Can you explain how the president is "trying to infringe upon their rights and get them fired."

what "rights" would these be....
