Ok, I still think that it's fucking stupid that people are getting mad over how he chose to protest, not over what he was protesting, but the fact that he protested by harmlessly not doing the thing dictated by some weird social law of America. I think the outrage over that is the dumbest shit in the world and the fact that it was great enough that they had to fire him to save face fucking disgusting.

That said, he's not fucking Jesus people, he's not making a sacrifice on the level of the soldiers that stormed the beaches on D-Day. I can see how him sticking to his guns in the face of getting canned might be seen by some as admirable, but it's not the same as running into death. All this is going to do is make people hate the man more, and I can honestly see why. I don't think kneeling during the anthem is spitting in veteran's faces, but this tweet certainly is.

Honestly, all this fuss over a Sportsball player not doing his socially mandated patriotic gesture is getting fucking stupid on both sides now.
