You're about to find out how many synonyms there are for "yup"

And I somehow doubt that Black athletes are demanding the freedom to run their cars into crowds

The solidarity extends to Canada, just for the record. Players of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, about to play the Calgary Stampeders, linked arms during the Canadian national anthem on Sunday in support. All I can say is, "Good." I'm proud.

“It’s sad and it’s disheartening to me as an American to see our president getting in bickering matches with people on Twitter, calling out athletes saying they should be fired,” said Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell. “I’m glad we’re all uniting against that and I hope we take a stand against something that is unacceptable.”

On a related note, given Kaepernick's skills and mobility, he'd do real good up here in the CFL. Think about it, Colin. A couple of teams dearly need a good QB.

and yet also support the beating and suppression of the right of white supremacists, or ANY other group or individual who expresses an opinion without advocating violence...

*ahem*  

I know that mean 'ol Deandre Harris had no business violently assaulting the metal poles that those five gentle, non-violent white supremacists were carrying ::roll eyes::, but somehow I doubt it has anything to do with a "safety valve" and everything to do with you being a racist and supporter of white supremacy (at least from inside of the closet you are hiding in).

@Token; "It was a Liberal who said something on the order of, I detest what you say but I WILL DEFEND TO THE DEATH YOUR RIGHT TO SAY IT.

It'd be easy to say you are not worthy of being classed with that man,but you don't belong to a "Group" or a "Class" "

WRONG!

Not a man but Evelyn Beatrice Hall who first penned the phrase you are misappropriatng here. 

In her book, "The Friends of Voltaire", Hall wrote the phrase:  "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it",  which is often misattributed to Voltaire (himself), as an illustration of Voltaire's beliefs. Hall's quotation is often cited to describe the principle of freedom of speech.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Beatrice_Hall

Is that a rolled up first draft of a manifesto explicating the necessity for a post-agrarian proletariat to consolidate the means of production in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
