Default Kyle Schwarber desecrating the flag

Can you believe it? Veterans should be in an uproar, considering it’s against code to wear clothing designed to look like the flag.

First kneeling, now this.

I get that this is to bait people. The act of people kneeling or wearing a hat at the anthem, or spitting on the flag, or burning it is what people usually take issue with because it is seen as a sign of disrespect for the most part. Wearing clothing resembling the flag is not (unless it is portraying it in a negative light), nobody cares about that. Personally I dont care about the kneelers, I think they have never or will never solve any race relations with their actions. They can virtue signal, thats fine but its an empty gesture

E for effort. F for execution.

Nice try Bezos.

Anyone have any idea why they used to kneel? Was it for equal rights to beat your women?

Absolutely disgraceful. The flag or its likeness should not be worn, it should only be displayed on a flagpole or stored in a Trumpy.

You guys like this one?



How 'bout this one?



What about one made of Jello? I know our colors don't run, but should they jiggle?

This reminds me of the time I entered a paint ball shooting tournament.

I wrap a mini American flag on my head like Rambo.
