All lives matter enough to show respect. My daughter definitely has earned respect with hard work and determination. I am proud of her and will always respect her choice and what she stands for 🇺🇸🇺🇸. When you sit, take a knee or anything else meant in disrespect, you disrespect her. If no respect is given, no respect is earned. Thank you @sydney_brieher for making a choice to become a true patriot. #respect#america#patriot#usnavy#usmc#usna
Dear NFL, take a lesson from my son who is 6. Any time the national anthem comes on while we are at home he is the first one to stand and put his hand over his heart and tell everyone else to do the same. That's having true class and respect. You don't want to stand, your right to do so. But I'd be glad to introduce you to several people who can't because of the sacrifice they made protecting your rights. This was taken at the beginning of the Raiders Redskins game #nfl#myson#patriot#proudamerican#prouddad#usmc#prayforournation

His actions are rooted in the fundamental American principle that you can protest to make your country better. Sorry MAGA crowd, trying to branch off into your own country because you like keeping black people as property cause white people are genetically superior does not fall into that category. Getting free slave labor takes jobs away from hardworking white folks. And the confederate flag is disrespectful to the American flag. Taking a knee is a form of protest granted by the #1stamendment in the #Constitution . Try reading it.
Major respect and props to this warrior. The fact that he is criticized by some for going against the grain to stand for our flag..the symbol of the greatest nation on planet earth...is absolutely appaling. I do not understand why this thing is even a "thing". How can you not be compelled to stand in respect for our flag and it's symbolism?? I was not a military man...but I have spent well over a decade in service to community and indeed country as a Police Officer. I have fought for the values of justice and let my blood for the convictions of what I believe this flag to stand for. I'm not a huge football guy..but Mr. Villanueva..you have won a fan and his respect.👊🇺🇸 #america#usa#awol#patriot
Old Glory Belt Buckle!
O say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?#northwestbrassworks#beltbuckle#america#usmilitary#veterans#americanflag#respect#freedom#patriot
Why is this even an issue? You want to protest something, fine! But you DON'T do it by disrespecting the men and women who died to give you that right in the first place. The flag is not a political or race issue. The flag is a symbol of this great country and I for one always have, always will, stand at attention when our anthem is played. Also kudos to @canterburypark .When I was there I happened to be in line getting a drink when the National Anthem came on. EVERYONE stopped what they were doing (including the bartender making my drink) to either look at a tv that was playing the anthem or outside to the flag. RESPECT to people who still understand and do this. "And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today. #usa#america#american#patriotic#patriot#redwhiteandblue#istand#americanflag#respect#patriotism#military#veterans
