And by the way, the ones who kneel for the Anthem are only standing for the cause they are protesting. If they were to be honoring their ability to protest, they would be standing for the Anthem because that's the whole reason for doing so. It doesn't make kneeling good or bad but the fact people used bad logic for trying to make a point is impossible to ignore. The act of protesting is meant to bring up the importance of a specific issue. The act of standing for the Anthem, saluting, etc. is to show support of the country and honor to our flag. Sure, you can add your own definition to try to make your argument more valid, but that doesn't change the purpose of why standing for the Anthem began in the first place.
"Toward the close of his speech Burrows said, "Soldiers should not be heedless to the sentiment of their songs and to the music of their bands. ... I would like to see every true American, soldier or citizen, when he hears the grand notes of our National air, rise to his feet in patriotic recognition and uncover."
There it is. Standing was suggested to show "patriotic recognition". That was its purpose. Kneeling to protest is a bad platform and always has been. But regardless of opinion, the act of protesting cannot logically be considered standing for patriotism.
Oh, and here's a really cool follow-up to the Frying Pan Tower feed. Sadly, it also shows that people take offense to everything these days.
