Beto ORourke, the Democrat challenging GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the midterm elections, is being slammed by Republicans for saying there is nothing more American than kneeling during the national anthem.
Comments like his are a slap in the face to every man and woman who has ever served our nation and put their lives on the line to defend American values, Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey said Thursday.
ORourke, a Democratic congressman, was asked at a recent campaign event about NFL players who kneel during the anthem. ORourke replied, I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee for your rights anytime, anywhere, any place.

Nothing more American than hating America?
I’m sure the comment fired up the crazy leftist base. All 30 of them. The rest of the democrats, and especially the independents and moderates are either going to sit this one out or vote for Cruz.
He would say that. Ted needs to hit him HARD on this.
All “WE” have to do is say “WE” agree with the take a knee, “WE” used to pray before the start of ANY sporting competition.
If “WE” push it loud and hard, eventually someone will come up with the ‘complaint’ that THEY are praying in public before games during the National Anthem.
THEN the apologists will have to band together and inform the world that YES, the low rent districts buttheads are NOT PRAYING, they are protesting conditions in the country.
THEN the unwashed masses will finally get the true word of what is taking place.
A good husband shows his love by publicly humiliating his wife too right Beto......jerk@#$.
Keep talking, you Fake Mexican carpetbagger.
Identify him by name as “Robert Francis” wherever and wherever you discuss this maggot. It will through the Dems off.
He publicly humiliated his wife? I missed that story.
He must have smoked something prior to making that comment. He’s finished. Cruz wins by eight points minimum. You could say that in California but not Texas.
“Nothing more American than hating America?”
Sure, they’re “patriotic” seditionists.
Patriotism is Treason
Love is Hate
And of course, murdering one’s own unborn children is a God-given right.
This guy is an absolute DUMB ASS which makes him the perfect Commie Dem
Yes...Though I’ve never lived in Texas I was amazed a candidate in Texas would make a statement like that, the few times I’ve been there I was impressed at the patriotism of Texans.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
You could say that in California but not Texas.
Well, Actually, I was thinking New York, but same diff...
In a strange and eerie way; this kind of defines the difference between leftists and normals.
In a sick way O’Rourke is right. It is a fundamental American and human right to protest peacefully. What he/they don’t understand is why kneeling at the exact moment when we pledge allegiance to the flag (our country) is one of the most sacred things we do to show love of country and pay respect for those who have fought to protect it up to and including losing their lives to do it. A kick in the balls would be less painful.
If they don’t want to be here; I don’t see anything stopping them from leaving. I wish they would go and take every last one of their brain damaged ungrateful brethren with them.
