Conservative Justice Warriors are abound.

18 or so of the East Carolina University marching band took a knee this weekend during the anthem to protest

The Band Director said, "While we affirm the right of all our students to express their opinions, protests of this nature by the Marching Pirates will not be tolerated moving forward."

The ESPN affiliate said they would not play their next game.

It is important to know the protesters did not interrupt the anthem or restrict any persons rights, yet the Director is proposing to deny these individuals of their rights.

While the ESPN affiliate is a private party and can choose to play any content they wish as long as it doesn't break any contractual obligations, the influence they and other private parties are placing upon the protesters is designed to limit their rights.

The attempt of these Conservative Justice Warriors to limit free speech is shameful. Their practice of promoting Political Correctness is shameful.

While I do not condone the actions of ESPN, as a private organization, they have the right to choose who gets to represent their organization as upheld by the US Supreme Court. There is rather a huge difference between what happened here and what goes on in government subsidized public universities.

So you, a liberal promote that Conservatives incollege having their free speech smothered is a sham? Interesting. That would turn the entire liberalised college system upside down and on its head. That's all I see is college suppressing free speech as if it's their job to do so. Lmao

I'm sorry but you to take things out of context or are ill informed, the original story says "Furious North Carolina football fans booed the band after several members refused to play the National Anthem " while others took a knee. "http://www.toddstarnes.com...
when you are in a uniform or job role, you aren't representing yourself, your uniform represents the school/job if you wish to protest on your own time that's fine, but not while you are representing something else. I'm not sure how this isn't painfully obvious, they can't allow students in uniform to do this as it directly reflects on the school, how could it now be so? There is a time and a place for everything, if they felt that strongly about it, don't dress, stay in the stands and do your protest and deal with the consequences if there are any. Just like kaepernick they should have made him take the uniform off while protesting or not paid him for that time, protest on your own time not on company time.

Hate protest has consequences. They can kneel all day long if they want to, they just won't get a free venue on ESPN or in a prestigious marching band.

I don't have a point. I just wanted to make sure everyone who is against safe spaces understood that conservatives are trying to create a safe space at ECU football games so they don't have to be offended when some band members kneel during the anthem.

Creating a space that incites riots is a ludicrous position to take Slo. Hateful speech may be protected but it does not need to be tolerated.

Some played their instruments on their knees so they were not functionally in violation of anything but standing. Regardless, there are many offended trying to create a safe space at the foot ball games now.

I'm not certain how you come to that conclusion. However, I'm not taking a stance on this form of speech, but instead want to show how Conservative Justice Warriors like you are just as in favor of safe spaces when it suits their needs.

wrong for all the reasons I stated, what you do on your own time is your own business not when you are representing a business/organization take it to the stands or were ever, just like there's limitations to were you can march, picket and protest, if you are there to represent someone or something other than only yourself than that is what you should do.

I don't have a point. I just wanted to make sure everyone who is against safe spaces understood that conservatives are trying to create a safe space at ECU football games so they don't have to be offended when some band members kneel during the anthem.

Creating a space that incites riots is a ludicrous position to take Slo. Hateful speech may be protected but it does not need to be tolerated.

I never said anything needs to be tolerated. I just want to make sure you understood that conservatives are trying to force the creation of a safe space at football games so they don't have to be offended. It is a very PC like stance.

No it isn't. You are confusing hate speech with views that you oppose.

Lol, you are being a bit melodramatic. I can see I triggered you.

Don't be ridiculous. Trashing the country and claiming white cops want to hunt down and kill blacks is clearly hate speech.

I'm not certain how you come to that conclusion. However, I'm not taking a stance on this form of speech, but instead want to show how Conservative Justice Warriors like you are just as in favor of safe spaces when it suits their needs.

I take it you are in favor of removing the front door of your house then?

I'm sorry but you to take things out of context or are ill informed, the original story says "Furious North Carolina football fans booed the band after several members refused to play the National Anthem " while others took a knee. "http://www.toddstarnes.com...
when you are in a uniform or job role, you aren't representing yourself, your uniform represents the school/job if you wish to protest on your own time that's fine, but not while you are representing something else. I'm not sure how this isn't painfully obvious, they can't allow students in uniform to do this as it directly reflects on the school, how could it now be so? There is a time and a place for everything, if they felt that strongly about it, don't dress, stay in the stands and do your protest and deal with the consequences if there are any. Just like kaepernick they should have made him take the uniform off while protesting or not paid him for that time, protest on your own time not on company time.

Some played their instruments on their knees so they were not functionally in violation of anything but standing. Regardless, there are many offended trying to create a safe space at the foot ball games now.

wrong for all the reasons I stated, what you do on your own time is your own business not when you are representing a business/organization take it to the stands or were ever, just like there's limitations to were you can march, picket and protest, if you are there to represent someone or something other than only yourself than that is what you should do.

when your hate speech costs your employer money, there should be no outrage when you are denied a venue from your employer (assuming you still have a job)

exactly, how that is seen as a safe space requires some very special glasses I guess, how many have been fired or in some way ended with unintended consequences for not attending practice/work whatever because it was a Sunday or religious holiday? You worship on your own time, when you were hired/volunteered/joined you accepted a certain responsibility and agreed to the expectations, either live up to them or quit. Going forward they have been put on notice this isn't going to be allowed, don't like it? quit, pretty simple really.

so is the issue of what they did or that they did it in uniform plus what was quoted.

So you, a liberal promote that Conservatives incollege having their free speech smothered is a sham? Interesting. That would turn the entire liberalised college system upside down and on its head. That's all I see is college suppressing free speech as if it's their job to do so. Lmao

Do you have a degree Brondo? Where did you go? Dirt and Sand U?

I have multiple degrees. And every sporting event I've ever attended, I saluted the flag and put my hand over my heart? Why? I was welcomed into a civilization. I'd have to be a complete knuckle dragging baboon to not pledge an oath and allegiance to their hospitality. Those people standing's problem is no one ever taught them how to be a man. These are the whiniest, most self entitled, ignorant little chimps I have ever seen.

totally agree, but I'm sure those making 15 million a year will soon reveal how they donated most of they money they have earned to address this issue they are so passionate about, right? yeah right. these are attention whores and that's the only reason for it, they wouldn't and don't do anything helpful when not wearing their uniforms I would bet. They don't really get involved in issues they just give a lot of lip service to it, won't be long and we'll all soon forget, none of this will have done anything, this isn't how meaningful and long lasting change is accomplished.

18 or so of the East Carolina University marching band took a knee this weekend during the anthem to protest

The Band Director said, "While we affirm the right of all our students to express their opinions, protests of this nature by the Marching Pirates will not be tolerated moving forward."

The ESPN affiliate said they would not play their next game.

It is important to know the protesters did not interrupt the anthem or restrict any persons rights, yet the Director is proposing to deny these individuals of their rights.

While the ESPN affiliate is a private party and can choose to play any content they wish as long as it doesn't break any contractual obligations, the influence they and other private parties are placing upon the protesters is designed to limit their rights.

The attempt of these Conservative Justice Warriors to limit free speech is shameful. Their practice of promoting Political Correctness is shameful.

Yeah I don't think schools should tell their students to stand for the flag if they don't want to. These are really rare cases though and things like this have a liberal spin where they want a higher body to force you to do things
