Well written. The anti NFL protest arguement that I was having trouble arguing against effectively could be summarized as “The national anthem is honoring the sacrifice of dead soldiers. How dare you dishonor them by kneeling?” I guess that is similar to saying “no, you are being disrespectful to the people who made this country great for you.”, but it is making the whole argument become emotionally charged with dead young people and widows and kids growing up without parents…
