I have some friends and cousins who believe Trump's
description of what taking a knee is about.
It's very much that they need to have an us vs them kind of fight for some reason.
It is sad that it is the level of interaction we have when the side they are on is fake news.
There are times when I want to disengage and block it all out but then I think we need our voices in the mix too.
Maybe one of them will check out what we are saying and get a new perspective.
It isn't just one side against an equal other side, it is good vs evil.
We need to give them as good as we get. It would be wrong to allow their viewpoints to dominate the airwaves.
And I agree: It IS good vs evil.
The only time I saw them get a little outraged about the authoritarian position. I put up a video of a 56 yr old black man murdered in the back. Silence. I have had post after post of black men murdered. Silence.
Their hypocrisy about kneeling during the flag is a given. That want to hold a position and facts will not get in the way.
Actions taken by republicans/conservatives one of the most destructive has been their ability to cast our two party system in an absolute Us v. Them framework with a hardline against compromise. Ultimately this will be our downfall.
