Why You Should Stand For The National Anthem

By Donald Trump Collectables Admin October 02, 2017 0 comments

The current debate over kneeling or sitting in protest during the national anthem was ignited by Colin Kaepernick when he first refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" on Aug. 26, 2016. Since that time, many others have refused to stand for the national anthem. These protests have generated controversy and sparked a public conversation about the protesters' messages and how they've chosen to deliver them.

Here Are Reasons Why You Should Stand For The National Anthem

1. Refusing to stand for the National Anthem shows disrespect for the flag and members of the armed forces.

The national anthem pays respect to the people who have risked their lives, been injured, or died defending the United States. Carole Isham, a great-great-great-granddaughter of the writer of the national anthem (Francis Scott Key) stated that "it just blows my mind that somebody like (Kaepernick) would do what he does to dishonor the flag of this country and the national anthem when we have young men and women overseas fighting for this county, people that have died for this country.

2. Not standing for the National Anthem is an ineffective and counterproductive way to promote a cause.

Clemson University football coach Dabo Swinney said in a press conference: "I don't think it's good to be a distraction to your team. I don't think it's good to use your team as the platform." Malcolm Jenkins, safety for the Philadelphia Eagles, said, "My grandfather served [in the military]. And this is a country that I love. So, me not standing for the national anthem isn't really going to get me the results that I want." 

3. Refusing to stand for the National Anthem angers many and sows division in our country.

Kaepernick and others who have refused to stand for the national anthem have caused division among their teams, their fans, and across the country. The Santa Clara police union hinted they would boycott providing security at games after Kaepernick revealed his reasons for protesting the national anthem. Fans have been burning Kaepernick's jersey to show their distaste for his actions.
