Apparently you’re not allowed to partake in Halloween festivities if you share the wrong view.
I especially loved the “ he went as a racist portrayal.” comment. Couldn’t agree more. Kapernick is a prime example of a racist portrayal of what’s wrong with America. You hit the nail on the head.

^^^ That’s total BULL $Hit^^^^ IMO it will go no where. If the guy would have gone in Black Face or something the that may be a line in the sand but if Dude wants to dress up as a public figure. So be it. If the LEO gets fired or repremanded for his choice of Halloween costume I think he should contact the civil libertys union.

I agree free speech needs to be protected at all costs. The quickness ess to jump to offence is a major cause of a lot of our problems.

So don't have a hissy fit when some footballers kneel. Equally don't freak out when someone dresses up as one either.

Free speech is absolutely one way. You can speak against your govt and it can't take action against you.

Now if we are talking about the cost of speech to the individual, that goes all ways. Remember the college professor that lost his job because he remarked that the climate science deniers that suffered Harvey got what they voted for.

John and Ralph are correct. Look at Kapernick. He had his “Free speech” look where that got him. LOL
