America is entrenched in an ideological war of wills to determine whether NFL players kneeling during the national anthem is anti-American, or an American-given right to peacefully protest. We can thank president Donald Trump for that. What began as a protest with deference to American troops and the military in order to shed light on racial inequality has been trounced. Now, it’s a discourse over what constitutes appropriate forms of protest, and where the line is drawn between that and disrespect for the country, flag, military, etc.
