  1. VFW and American Legion speakout about protest

    BIG D. I sense lots of resentment in your posts. I hope that is not the case but if so, you are determined to get a rose out of the opposition. No one is suppressing speech. Heck, I made the statement that both positions stand on firm principles and should be able to co-exist. But some selectively hear only what they choose. Continue your rancor as I exit this stage. I stated what I felt the offense to be.

    So Big D. You are telling everyone on here that it is acceptable dialogue to call men and women from the VFW Or American Legion who passionately oppose political demonstrations at the expense of the American Flag as "old as white men hating on young wealthy black men"? You find that as acceptable decorum? I don't believe that you do for one minute. That can easily spin out of control into something that only extremist embrace. Hence my suggestion to Jeremy.

    Yes Big D. All Americans!
  4. VFW and American Legion speakout about protest

    Hello everyone, many of us are former soldiers. It is grossly out of line for citizens to spew the race narrative for those of us that served and unconditionally respect Old Glory. Many here are likely multi-generational military families. I am a first time poster that has visited this forum since the days of NANCE. But, when I am referred to as an old white guy hating on rich young black guys, I find that insulting as hell. I have commanded young men of all races. They all know my profound love for them. I credit my service to my country, military brethren and my faith for being so honored. I am immensely proud to be a citizen in the premier country in the world. It is not perfect and honestly it never will ever be. I fully support what the Dallas Cowboys as an organization exhibited last night. I hope my fellow vets are able to view it the same. It allowed the players to have their moment to demonstrate solidarity for their campaign. And shortly thereafter the veterans, fans and teams showed solidarity in being Americans committed to the symbol of our freedom and independence for which many have sacrificed all. I may not speak for many here but there are (2) sides to this equation and both are justified in their passionate convictions and there needs to be NO compromise. But the Cowboys showed how both can rightfully co-exist. But please know, dumping on the flag will never end well, especially as long as men and women take the oath to serve and protect. I would respectively collapse this discussion if I were Jeremy.
