flag protests

Taking a knee looks like the Democratic strategy

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Mr. Kaepernick’s original protest was something new and different. He was offended by the cruelty of a handful of cops, and decided it could be sold as the behavior of hundreds of thousands of policemen everywhere. This was quickly transformed by Kaepernick followers as proof that America was dirty and undeserving of anyone’s love and loyalty. A single owner could put an end to this spectacle by giving the washed-up quarterback one last shot, and see if he’s still as good as he says he is. No owner is that brave or that foolish. Football is a business first.
