Now most protests accomplish very little short-term and when they go on forever, people often lose interest or become de-sensitized to it. While the NFL kneeling protests (which started as sitting) have never been a movement free from criticism, it does sadden me to see the NFL pretty much rule that all players who want to kneel will be kept in the locker room during the anthem. While the NFL is not a government organization, Donald Trump added fuel to the fire by using his influence to alter public opinion including that of the team owners and other NFL bigwigs. While it doesn't technically violate the First Amendment, it's a huge spit in the face to free-thought and free-speech in the cultural sense.
