Taling a knee

The parallels between Trump’s racist advocacy of squelching the 1st Amendment rights of NFL players and similar Nazi practices are stunning. While our resistance is necessary, we need an intelligent strategy to counter each of Trump’s such moves toward fascism. One approach is to inject powerful divisiveness into Trump’s own ranks. For example, the protesting NFL players shouldn’t just take one knee. By facing their seats on both knees, with elbows on the seats, viewers could easily conclude they are praying. How would Trump’s admonition to fire them then be perceived by his base? And what would happen when hundreds in the audience follow the players’ lead and kneel similarly?
