“Be patriotic or get the f*ck out!”

Post by lovinlife101 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:53 pm

I thought this was America, where people are allowed to express themselves freely. Guess not.

Oh, and this is a hockey coach swearing in front of his colleagues, not Bill Harris this time.

Don’t get me wrong. This coach has the right to say this, but the players also have the right to tell him to get the eff out, too.

Wow. GOOD FOR THAT COACH! Sets a good example for those players. You can't appreciate what you've been given and show some respect for the other country's team that you're playing? Then you don't deserve to be on the ice.

It's one thing for the GOVERNMENT to control free speech, it's another completely for a coach to set a respectable example for his players.

Yeah, a great example by using that kind of language. What a jerk.

Plus, where were you when Lou Whitaker and Chet Lemon of the Detroit Tigers refused to stand for the anthem? Oh, double-standard table for one.

Language? You don't think those guys have heard (and have used) that language before?? How old do you think those guys are? Grade school kids???

Don't really recall the Lou and Chet thing, but looking it up they were doing that based on their religious beliefs, not because they hated America and everything it stood for.

Do you believe coaches and other authorities should set a good example? Obviously not. Who cares if the players have heard and/or used that language before? A coach cursing at his players is communicating it’s okay to curse at him. If he gets offended, then he has nobody to blame but himself. No player should be disciplined for cursing out the coach if the coach is cursing at them with no consequences.

Oh, and black people are kneeling to respect the flag and protest police brutality aimed at black people, not because they hate America. You don’t get to decide motive.

90% of police brutality and killings would be eliminated if the suspects just observed some simple rules, like not walking down the middle of a busy street after an armed robbery they committed, and not running away after being told to stop, after returning from a convenience store to buy a blunt (on video) to an apartment complex where a lot of breaking and enterings have recently occurred.

Or, just being black, standing there doing nothing.

What that priest did to you was wrong, wrong, wrong! You don’t need to justify that behavior. Abuse is abuse and it is wrong.

Your statement is absolute, not relative.

Ignorance is a curse. Seek truth, logic, facts, and reasoning. You’ll be glad you did, and that’s absolute, Skippy!
