Republicans: Those football players shouldn’t kneel for the national anthem, it’s disrespectful to the flag!
Democrats: Since you are worried about people being disrespectful to the US flag, we should just take these Confederate statues and flags down.
Republicans: DON’T TAKE OUR STATUES AND FLAGS AWAY! FREEDOM OF SPEECH! FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
Also Republicans: We have a day in honor of the great American Nathan Bedford Forrest.
Everyone else: Wasn’t he the first Grand Wizard of the KKK? Didn’t he commit treason and fight against the US government in the Civil War? Didn’t he lead a massacre that killed a bunch of prisoners during the war, aka a war crime?
Republicans: Uh, yeah? SO?
