Americans aren’t too easily offended, at least not in the general sense.
Sure, we have our whiners, but that’s going to be true of any subsection of the human population. On the average though, We The People like to think that we have a pretty thick skin. We have been living with the First Amendment for all of our lives, after all. If we wanted to live somewhere where our feelings couldn’t get hurt, it would be a place far, far away from freedom.
But there are still some statements that can easily get our blood boiling.
Another is disrespecting the stated values of this country and the symbolism that promotes it. That’s why Colin Kaepernick’s infections “anthem-kneeling” protests were found to be so offensive.
Apparently, Beto O’Rourke didn’t get the memo.
When Democrat Beto O’Rourke takes the stage in the second round of presidential primary debates on Tuesday, three young black men from Michigan who were inspired by ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick to kneel during the national anthem before their high school football games will be in the audience as guests of the former Texas congressman.
O’Rourke reached out to ex-Lansing Catholic High School football players Michael Lynn III, Matthew Abdullah and RoJe Williams and spoke with them by phone last week. Teammate Kabbash Richards is away at college and unable to attend the debate.
O’Rourke has bene stringing together a number of PR stunts in recent days, as these debates in Detroit have been billed as a last-ditch effort for many of the low-polling democrats in the expansive democratic field.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
