"There's a right way and a wrong way to protest, and not standing for the national anthem is the wrong way. It's just wrong. Also, any other form of peaceful protest by black people is also wrong. So wrong."

Fuck you FoxNews!!!

My favorite was when they say, gasp, it's trickling down to small children. Won't someone think of the children?! not kneeling for the national anthem?

Meanwhile, won't someone please try and use some understanding for the people chanting, "Blood and soil!" and "Jews will not replace us!" They just are concerned about history and stuff. No concern for any children, learning to chant those words.

I really think that if and when historians write about the downfall of America, the rise of blatantly partisan conservative media, first talk radio, followed by Fox News, will have a prominent place in the discussion.

Meanwhile, we're to believe liberal media is fake news, while the President lies basically almost every single day, by omission or just explicitly.

No, in that scenario the history will be written by the successors to Fox News who will probably describe it as the harbinger of the glorious new world. Or something like that.

Hopefully the protests during the national anthem continue to grow and eventually they just stop engaging in nationalistic flag worship rituals before every football game. Doesn't the Christian god get pissed off at people for worshiping false idols?

When discussing plans of what will be happening after church, I will say that I intend to worship at the altar of the Church of the NFL.

I'm hoping that one day a stadium PA technician gets fed up and walks off the job after putting the National Anthem on a loop. Anyone who was to stop that loop would be just as unpatriotic as the kneelers.

Awesome moment, and good on Peter Norman who came and supported the salute by wearing the human rights badge, and despite qualifying 13 times for the next Olympics was not picked by the Australian team. Who said sport wasn't political.
Great documentary about the event called 'Salute', and Smith and Carlos were pall bearers at Norman's funeral. Norman eventually got an official apology from the Australian goverment in 2012, 6 years after he died. shake

IOC President's responses to salutes.
Following the salutes in 1968,
International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Avery Brundage deemed it to be a domestic political statement unfit for the apolitical, international forum the Olympic Games were intended to be. In response to their actions, he ordered Smith and Carlos suspended from the US team and banned from the Olympic Village.
...
Brundage, who was president of the United States Olympic Committee in 1936, had made no objections against Nazi salutes during the Berlin Olympics. He argued that the Nazi salute, being a national salute at the time, was acceptable in a competition of nations, while the athletes' salute was not of a nation and therefore unacceptable.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1968_Olympics_Black_Power_salu...

cf Benching of USA Jewish relay runners at 1936 Olympic Games.


Bribery of Brundage or just happy to do business with the Nazi government of Germany?

Brundage's papers contain a 1938 letter from Hans von Tschammer und Osten, the president of the German Olympic Committe, in which he tells Brundage that his Chicago construction firm has been chosen to help build the German embassy in Washington because of his 'friendly attitude toward German sports'.

“I couldn’t see why a black man couldn’t drink the same water from a water fountain, take the same bus or go to the same school as a white man.
There was a social injustice that I couldn’t do anything for from where I was, but I certainly hated it.
It has been said that sharing my silver medal with that incident on the victory dais detracted from my performance.
On the contrary, I have to confess, I was rather proud to be part of it”.

Favorite line in the video:

Quote:
"There's this emphasis on multiculturalism at any cost."


The mantra of the scared white nationalist bully. Multiculturalism is a bad thing only in the mind of bigoted haters with double-digit IQ's.

The severe delusional viewpoint of the white nationalist supremacists intrigues me a little... they tend to talk in terms of multiculturalism as if this is some new or impending trend, as opposed to the way our country's always been. The term "The Melting Pot" wasn't coined just last month, was it?

They also repeat the mantra "identity politics" as a pejorative when the right has been advocating for "white identity" longer than anyone.
