So, THERE, nyah nyah!

Just got done reading about how our local Republicans are planning to respond to the take-a-knee protests. It’s no surprise that they are huffily siding with Trump in erroneously viewing the protests as being against the flag. But their planned response? They are encouraging “everyone to stop at noon on Thursday, play the National Anthem on their phones and stand throughout the process.” Seriously.

Even in a community where Republicans are well-known for taking swan dives into shallow pools of jingoism, this is a bit much. I’m guessing that my neighbors are wondering about my latest outburst of guffaws.

You can read about it here, if you are so inclined:
