Special Opinion to the Mirror by Andy Zahn
It’s not the right to protest, and it is not Civil Rights.
What the NFL players are doing has nothing to do with sports. It’s anarchy.
Trump is right to call them out for what they are.
These followers who agree with them are dupes. They are part of the 5th column and don’t know it.
When we were kids in grade school and sang all the good American songs and all the verses of the Anthem, we respected the flag and knew its history about Betsy Ross, the colors, the 13 stripes and then the 48 stars. We knew the history of the Anthem and about Francis Scott Key. We have the most beautiful flag and Anthem in the world and they bring pride and tears to patriots.
These 22 percent malcontents are out to destroy our history, our statues and heroes in order to wipe out civilized society and American capitalism. Most are unemployed, uneducated idiots and have no idea
about Capitalism or what they really want–Socialism. They have no idea what they are protesting or where or what Wall Street really is or does.
They are not aware of rewards being THE motivator and in early grades a STAR meaning so much or a toy from Mom or Dad and later a pay check, a promotion, a pat on the back. Capitalism is why we make products and why millions have good jobs. Ordinary people can buy stocks and be part owners and millions are.
In all the “Utopias” laziness takes over and everyone quits working.
If these malcontents have their way, who would hand out the welfare checks, the food stamps, etc?
Years ago there was such a thing as class or “good taste”. Even though you had a right to do or say something you held back because it was not in good taste. Now they just say or do anything they want. We as a county lack the manners of the old days and words we were taught like Ma’am, Sir, Please, Thank You, Excuse me or even My mistake. What has happened to this country?
