Orson Welles once said, “I’ve spent most of my mature life trying to prove that I’m not irresponsible.” Then Winston Churchill jumped out of the birthday cake and said, “Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.”
Well playas…what happens when you’re irresponsible and wrong all at the same time? On Monday night our dear President was speakin’ at a rally in Louisville when he brought up the fact that he was readin’ an article about how NFL owners’ had fears about signin’ Colin Kaepernick and then he said, “They don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that?”
Keep in mind that he’s the same cat that said durin’ the campaign when asked of his opinion of Kaepernick’s protest,“I think it’s personally not a good thing. I think it’s a terrible thing. And, you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try; it won’t happen.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Donald Trump is the President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Not the DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA! That means that he’s EVERYBODY’S President bruh! Not just for the folks that think like he does.
The First Amendment of the Constitution gives every American the freedom of speech and the right to protest! As the President, it is his job to protect all American’s right to do so. It doesn’t matter how you feel about what Kaepernick did as long as he has a right to do it.
Those people that constantly say that he was disrespectin’ our flag or our service men and women they are merely showin’ their ignorance of the First Amendment. However, as the President, Trump, is supposed to be settin’ the example of what our country’s values are supposed to look like and what the law says. If not the President, then who?
Kaepernick was very specific as to why he was protestin’ in the first place but most closed minded individuals didn’t wanted to hear what he was sayin’. In speakin’ with the press shortly after boyz figured out what he was doin’ and made it public he said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
He was talkin’ about all of the policemen that were literally gettin’ away with murder for killin’ unarmed black men and not bein’ fired, indicted or convicted in these cases. But whether you agreed with him or not he had a constitutional right to protest and the President of the United States of all people should stand behind a man’s right to do so.
And will somebody PLEASE tell me why the dun that has already won the election is still holdin’ rallies? We need him to govern now not hold rallies. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
