Well last weekend a Pittsburgh Steeler, Alejandro Villanueva, came out of the locker room and stood for the national anthem. Doing so was his right, the same right Kaepernick had to kneel. But Villanueva was forced to apologize for his actions while Kap did not.
So what’s the difference between the two?
Villanueva stood which goes against the leftists agenda. So as a result the left berated him, shamed him, attacked him until he apologized.
Villanueva stood for what he believed. He should be allowed to do so as much as Kaepernick knelt. If you are for freedom of speech, you should allow both.
But it seemed the team didn’t agree. I’m sure that privately some on the Steelers do not agree with the stand, but coming out publically would cause the media and leftists to attack them.
So much for freedom of speech. Once again, its freedom of speech, as long as you agree with what I say.
