When did freedom of speech give anyone the right to be rude?
To those who refuse to stand for our flag and playing of our national anthem, I would say this:
What kind of an image do your actions show to our children who hold you in high esteem and claim you as their heroes?
What kind of a message does this give to the thousands and thousands of our service men and women who lost their lives so that we can be free and have the honor to stand up and respect our anthem and flag?
What do your actions say to our veterans who came home with the inability to stand for our National Anthem?
Stand up and walk out of our country. Take with you all your cash vaults and multimillion-dollar contracts. We do not need you.
