Dumb thing to do because will hate him for it but I have no problem with him sitting.
Patriotism is the only religion that if anyone dares question their loyalty they are burnt at the stake.

This is literally what almost all religions have done through the ages.

Agreed.
But it's not like that anymore besides for Islam.
The flag has the craziest followers.

The flag stands for everything this country represents both for good and for bad.
And some of the bad just ain't pretty.

Coming from someone that follows Judaism please give your definition of "craziest".

Crazy meaning you got the extreme left the extreme right and everyone in between as subscribers.
Whenever a whole nation follows the same religion it becomes a breeding ground for the crazies among them.

I don't agree but why would you call it a religion?

Because it looks like a religion and quacks like a religion.
Substitute cross for flag.

At all sports games everyone rises in honor of the US cross which represents the parcel of land they were born on. They then recite their pledge of allegiance to the cross. Those who don't believe in the US cross are still pressured to pledge allegiance to the cross or they live in fear of ostricization.

Interestingly, this practice is common on basically every inhabited parcel of land in the world, where the occupants are loyal to their local cross, because each one believes their cross is the greatest cross.

your use of the word "believe" here is taking some major liberties.

Forced gratitude is a thing?
And yes the bad is worse than other countries in certain cases.
For example, police brutality is a bigger issue in the US than in many other civilized countries.

If I had to name this religion I would call it this.

Maybe they don't believe in the flag, but they are loyal to it. So loyal is the correct word.
But otherwise, as a general rule everyones believes their flag is the greatest flag.

No ones forcing him to show gratitude, but they have the right to be disgusted by an ingrate.
I can't compare to other countries, I can't even get clear facts on police brutality in America. I'm sure it exists and is an issue that may even  warrant him getting involved in. But it's disgraceful to act as if America as a whole is a dispicable country.

If white people weren't interested in stupid sports, they'd be washing toilets.

I know Kaepernick situation is about blacks but my point wasn't.
I was talking about police brutality in general.

This guy says it best

Everyone has the right to get disgusted or offended. But why should I care? The only thing that matters to me is that people are so goddamned judgmental.

Well then you might want to educate yourself and return when you have the cold hard facts.
Now who said America is despicable?
If I don't like a sports team I don't watch them.
If I'm not a fan of the flag I don't need to stand up for it.
