Why is just standing for the National anthem OK but kneeling isn’t ?

I just saw a video on Facebook of a young child singing the national anthem and as the camera showed the players, a few had their hands over their hearts while others didn’t....so my question is why is that acceptable but what Colin Kappetnick did was a national disgrace?

    Colin Kappetnick wasn't kneeling in honor of the National Anthem. He "took a knee" to protest the National Anthem and the U.S.  THAT'S the difference!

    Colin made statements telling the press and the fans that he was kneeling in protest against the United States, which made him feel left out because he is Black.

    How about you just take Colin Kapernick at his own word when he said, "We reject your celebration of white supremacy?"

    Same as the perverted act of humping the flag and nothing being said. President or no president.

    The hypocrisy of the law and order party has no bounds under Chump.
