Typical TPOS “democrats”. Dumb as a box of rocks and too stupid to know any better. They always end up doing what they’re told to do by their handlers and yet once again they’re too stupid to see that at the end of the day they’ve been played time and time again. So typical of the “oppressed democrat” crowd.

So, protesting against the USA who fought against the Confederacy. Yeah, that's logical.

Seems as if there are alot of snowflakes butt hurt over some college kids here. A knee is a symbol of respect in ebery circumstance except this one in the eyes of the right. The left is dumb for doing this, but who gives a flying frick? It's dumb for the right to continue to protest for the confederacy. Lol. Continue to cry mf's. Continue to cry.

I see you lack reading comprehension skills. I also notice your have very thin skin. Keep being a little bitch. I won’t bother you. It’s your right after all.

You’re the epitome of a little bitch, pajamaboy.

I fail to understand how protesting the flag, which is the very reason you have the right to protest will ever accomplish anything. It seems like by now it would be realized that these protest have not worked because the message is lost.

I guess if you suck as bad as they do in basketball, may as well humble yourself and take a knee.

Hopefully this stuff will continue to get publicized. It keeps the people with common sense stirred up and at the voting booth. #MAGA

ESPN didn't waste any time putting the player press conference on display. With the kneeler saying we don't wan't hate groups on campus. Even though they are just protesting history being erased. The liberal brainwash continues. To the detriment of both sides.

I would have never known the group was even there if the players didn’t draw attention to it. The players gave free publicity to the group that they wanted to go away.

Leftist progressives are the only hate groups on campuses around the country these days. Hypocrites are going to be hypocrites I suppose.

if the players want to protest that other group, on their OWN TIME, that’s fine, but I fail to see how protesting America, by kneeling, accomplishes that. All it does is piss off a large percentage of the nation.

Most of these players are dumb as dirt. So, this isn’t suprising.

The US beat the confederacy to end slavery and these fools play for the Ole Miss Rebels. What a bunch of dipshits.

And... how does kneeling during the national anthem protest hate groups again? Get sports out of schools, these kids clearly need to focus on education if they are that damn dumb. Coaches are also spineless and don't care about teaching, as long as they can churn top flight athletes through and increase their payday. frick

It's OM basketball so how many people may have seen this? Like 10 maybe....

Honestly they knew everyone would talk about which would allow them the opportunity to get this info out there about the group meeting at ole miss. I didn’t know until the player put the spotlight on it. As for Kermit, I’d rather a man stand tall for his players than to run a hide. I wonder what dale would of done?

So free speech is cool for the hate groups, but not for the protesting of allowing the hate groups. How do you dinguses call yourselves American while criticizing the demonstration of free speech? Get out of your own overly-politicized anuses.

And yet your post is the embodiment of politicizing.

The first amendment does allow you to freely and openly hate this country. No one is better at it than the mentally ill left.

Did the hate group use it's right to free speech to kneel for the anthem? If so, then they are wrong too in their application of the amendment. There are other ways to bring attention to an issue other than disrespecting the flag.
