Do you guys realize that George Floyd once HELD a GUN to a BLACK PREGNANT WOMAN while he and his friends robbed her? I absolutely agree that he should not of been killed. I think it was something personal as the two men knew each other. Anyway, I wonder how the woman he once held a gun to now feels about the way America is honoring this fool. He was up to no good and was treated horribly by a former acquaintance that should be in jail. Nearly $15,000,000 has been raised on gofundme. I wonder if the recipients will pay it forward to the woman and child he terrorized?
Back on topic...
I will boo and boo loudly! I’ve been known since a young college student to tell other young punks to take off their hats during the National Anthem. Hell, I’ve even told old guys to stop talking when they were too engrossed in their conversation to even realize the anthem was playing. I’ll continue being that guy. Blame my grandparents and my stepdad. Shut up and honor your country and all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to give us the freedom that we take for granted. Don’t be scum and sure and the hell don’t honor scum!
I knew my words would get twisted. And, that's okay.
And I knew someone would bring up the socks (which was later). I'm waiting for T to bring up Che Guevara and then we will have come full circle.
I have always said I don't like what he did. I've also always said that, under the First Amendment, he has the right to do it. And, you have the right to boo lustily if you feel like it. That is YOUR right under the First Amendment.
What was twisted? I feel we have both stated facts.
It’s not like we haven’t heard that story before.
It doesn’t make it right because a green beret recommended he do it. So why bring it up?
It is his 1st Amendment right to do so. I don’t think anyone has said that it wasn’t. But thousands upon thousands have an issue with it - not just me. Why the need to support his stance with that story?
And you’re right, it is my right to boo....and I will if I see it!
