President Obama defends the rights of anti flag football player but not the rights of others 

President Obama on Monday defended San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the playing of the national anthem.
“[H]e’s following his constitutional right to make a statement,” Obama said at a press conference in Hangzhou, China, responding to a question about the quarterback. “I think there’s a long history of sports figures doing so.”
The president added, “I don’t doubt his sincerity. I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about. And if nothing else, he’s generated some conversation around some topics that need to be talked about it.”
( Billy’s thoughts – Funny thing I have not heard President Obama defending followers of Christ who play sports who want to proclaim their faith. I have not heard our president defending students in the public schools who want to hold Bible studies before , or after school. In fact this president has said nothing to defend people of  any faith outside of those who follow Islam. That President Obama defends a man who is anti our flag should upset us, but it should not shock us. Read the rest of the above story here. )
