Kneeling During the National Anthem

Historian Bill O'Reilly's “Killing the Rising Sun” is a look at America's victory in World War II. O'Reilly says those who kneel during the national anthem should read this book. Discuss your thoughts on the kneeling.

My thought in kneeling during the national anthem is that it is Unpatriotic and basically says I disrespect my country because of my beliefs if you believe in the causes such as the black lives matter movement FINE I have no problem with that go to as many rallies and protests as you want but don't disrespect your country and if you do that I have no respect for you because you have no respect for your country
