Patriots fans burn team gear over National Football League kneeling protests

Patriots fans burn team gear over National Football League kneeling protests”

Mark Shane was turned off by a few New England Patriots players taking a knee during the national anthem last weekend so he did the only sensible thing: invite a bunch of like-minded neighbors over to burn their own property.

Shane led more than 100 people in a rally that reportedly included patriotic music, a barbecue, American and military flags and a fire pit that was used to burn Patriots apparel.

Mark Shane says he organized the event on his front lawn because he felt Patriots players, and many others across the National Football League who kneeled before their games Sunday, were disrespecting veterans. "If I want to watch a protest, I'll turn on the news".

The spike in September protests occurred directly in response to comments made by President Donald Trump who, during a rally in Alabama last week, referred to any protesting player as a "son of a bitch". "I want to watch a football game".

"We've done our jobs as veterans and I think these younger people should realize that's how come they're playing and making all of their big dollars", said one man who attended.

Mark Shane led a protest typically not seen within MA: an anti-Patriots demonstration to express patriotism. "Our players are intelligent, thoughtful and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful", Kraft said in a statement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island weighed in Wednesday, asserting that both the Patriots players and Shane have the first amendment right to protest.
