NFL anthem stance is unAmerican

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Congratulations to the NFL. They have decreed that a piece of cloth (i.e., flag) which represents an image of America is more basic than the ideals (i.e., freedom of speech and expression) which are the essence of what it means to be an American.  If they claim that they took this action to protect the NFL’s appearance as patriotic, I suggest they reconsider.Forced patriotic expression is perfidious — and fundamentally unAmerican. Denis BrennanNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img
