Singing songs and carrying signs

Evidently some dude’s protesting the national anthem.

Don’t know who he is, don’t care, and doesn’t matter whether he’s protesting poverty, race-based policing, gay marriage, immigration, or the lack of vegetarian options at McDonald’s. Protesting the national anthem, the pledge, and burning the flag are the exact kind of speech the first amendment was designed to protect – we force ourselves to be open to seemingly outrageous speech so that we can get past the “outrage” and figure out why the speaker feels the need to push so hard to be heard. Sometime’s it’s because the rest of us just aren’t terribly concerned about the speech – whether it’s the illuminati or HRC’s lizard-person insides – but sometimes it’s because we, terribly, just aren’t concerned.

Go 1st Amendment! Let my people speak.
