A football player protests our nation’s treatment of African Americans by kneeling during the national anthem - “Unacceptable! Ought to be fired! He's protesting wrong!”
Students stage a walkout to protest government inaction in the face of gun violence in our schools - “Unacceptable! Kick them out! They’re protesting wrong!”
But the complainers don’t address the validity of the issue as something to be protested. ARE African American’s being mistreated in America? IS government inaction in the face of gun violence acceptable? It’s almost as if... the complainers know (maybe subconsciously?) that they’re on the wrong side of the issue. So rather than addressing the issue, all they have left is addressing the protesters.
Protesters - you’re getting under people’s skins. You’re making them think, even if only subconsciously. So I guess if you’re protesting, and someone is telling you that you’re doing it wrong... you must be doing something right! Keep it up!
