A 10 year old child refusing taking a knee during the pledge is not a patriotic act.


It is.

That kid understands patriotism more than you.

And I don't care what you do for a living, or if you served in the military. If you did not learn this basic lesson about equality, you have missed the point of what it means to be an American.

It's become a fad.

I agree with this, but regardless, a free person does not pledge allegiance to a government.

It’s a con. It’s part of the deification of the state.

You have a point there, but I never took the Pledge that seriously. To me, it was simply a way to express love for my country.

Good for you, Jasmine.  It's the same thing as "In God We Trust" on our currency and standing for the National Anthem.  Some traditions are designed to show respect for our country and the principles upon which it was founded.

The kneeling isn't about patriotism. It's about people of color being killed/beaten on a regular basis by police.

I don't throw around the R word. But if you turn this into being about patriotism...you're most likely a racist.

In 2020, when President Trump is reelected and we retake the House and gain a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, then you can blame President Trump and the Republicans for this continuing mess in Washington.

Defending the rights of his fellow citizens is not patriotic?

You and I define patriotism VERY differently.

Kneeling means you don't agree or support what it says. They don't agree with freedom? Its just as dumb as white supremacist and KKK standing or waving the flag. They should be the one's kneeling.

“In God we trust” doesn’t bother me, though the currency does.

I think it’s strange that the national anthem is played before sporting events, but it doesn’t bother near as much as the pledge.

The pledge of allegiance is drilled into children’s brains right away. At least it was for me every day at school, right from the jump. And you are told to pledge allegiance to the government.

Yikes. Has nothing to do with the founding. There was no pledge back then.
