In response to the letter by Rose Broussard Murphy ("Taking a knee is a constitutional right," The Daily News, Nov. 11): You are correct, Mrs. Murphy, it is not against the law to “take a knee during the national anthem, neither is burning a flag against the law."
It’s ironic that your comments ran on Veteran’s Day. Thank goodness the military did not “take a knee” while facing the enemy, otherwise you probably would not have the freedom to "take a knee.”
If you were to “take a knee," or burn a flag in a combat zone — it would in all probability — be your last act of defiance. There a lot of things you can do that are not against the law, intentional passing flatus at the dinner table is not against the law, but it is an act that people of good conscience would not do.
Taking a knee during the national anthem, or burning the flag as an act of defiance, is not something people of good conscience do.
