Letter: Can’t force loyalty in US

Published 11:32 pm Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Regarding the issue of NFL protests, if you respect the U.S. Constitution and the decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, read WVa. Board of Education v. Barnette (1943) in which the High Court declared that the government could not force U.S. citizens to publicly proclaim their loyalty.

If you would like to live in a country where you must stand for the flag and the national anthem, move to North Korea.
