Saw this on Facebook so thought I would repost.

From Lacey Zarnetski Hill - "I don't usually post my opinion on this subject, but this infuriated me. I'll begin by saying that I don't treat people differently according to their appearance. I had a very friendly chat with and helped a Muslim couple find a specific toy in Target a couple weeks ago while we were shopping. I had no reason to treat them with any disrespect. With that being said, I'll make my point. Why would you choose to live in a country that you have no respect for? This was last night at the AMA Supercross in Dallas, Tx. Before the races began they, as they always do, did a great tribute of respect to our flag and those who serve our country. Every person stood and removed their hats in honor, as you can see. The whole time, this lady sat in her chair and played on her phone without showing any acknowledgement towards the thousands of people around her standing at attention. My husband, myself, and other Americans around us were offended at the lack of respect this woman showed towards the country she lives in. So my question is - Why live in America and reap the benefits of living in this great country if you have zero respect for the country and for those who serve it?"

I expect this post to go very well.

They say the "pledge of allegiance" at the super cross?

And those that fight, fight for her freedom, just like they do yours.

This past weekend Jenny Taft referred to Marcus Luttrell as "Morgan Luttrell." If you're going to do a piece on a guy that's largely seen as a war hero, you should show respect and make sure they story is accurate.

I agree that what she did is disrespectful, but letting it anger you will only ruin your day and won't effect her.

Well there is also a dude like 4 seats forward that is wearing a hat...

For as long as I can remember there have been people talking and keeping their caps/hats on during the National Anthem.

This displeases me greatly that people can't shut up for two or three minutes and show an ounce of respect by removing their caps/hats.

Luttrell is one bad dude. If anyone has a chance, try and see him if he still doing speeches and seminars. The way he tells his story is remarkable. Truly a hero.

Maybe she is not American.

You're kidding, right? It was Morgan Luttrell, Marcus L's twin brother! Both were SEALs.

It was Marcus' brother, Morgan.

We do have true heroes in this nation and they should be greatly respected. To not remove your hat (unless you are in uniform) or not even stand shows you show zero respect IMO.

That means although no respect.

I am not an American either, but if the national anthem will be plaid from any country I pay attention and behave accordingly. And here you should at least stand up!

We where in a Circus recently and yes for us it was not normal hearing an anthem at the beginning.
But yes we stud up and where quite, I don't have to sing but I can provide a certain respect.

That's just my 2 cents as a foreigner!

I guess this goes right along with some Americans that are burning the flag. I find them to be more disrespectful than this lady.

Maybe they are Jehova Witnesses...

I wouldn't compare burning the American flag and sitting during the anthem...

I had the same initial reaction, until she explained that Marcus was his twin brother.

Not going to pretend I knew he had a twin brother prior to that clip.

it is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt...

Who gives a shit? Freedom of choice. Luckily, her sitting there minding her own business doesn't affect you!

Is it disrespectful? Maybe. Would you want to salute the North korean national anthem? If for some reason, you were there and everyone was praising the ruler? I assume you would join in out of respect.

Is it really any different when you just look at the basics?

Different strokes.

Just glad I can choose!

She's probably trying to detonate an IED, but doesn't have service because she has T-Mobile. Oh, is that disrespectful...

Wrong. If I chose to live in North Korea then yes, I would stand up. This lady Is plain disrespecting the country. So why live here? Some will try to make excuses, compare things etc. but its not right. She's an ass.

If you paid attention closely she stated that it was his twin brother a few minutes later. I too, did a double take and thought " did she just screw up?" But soon after she went on to say who it was. Pay attention people.

I would never salute the North Korean national anthem. So here's what I do: I don't go to North Korea.

So... you have no idea if the woman was an American citizen or not. Maybe she was not, if so, I wouldn't expect her to stand for our anthem. Even if she was a citizen, this is America, the land of the free (or so they say)...

You're mostly spot on with your post.

As an American serviceman I have sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States of America. In that Constitution is the 1st Amendment which offers this lady the freedom of Religion, Speech, Press, and Assembly.

I don't like that she remained seated either but that is absolutely her right. We can't pick and choose which aspects of the Constitution that we want to apply. They're all applied evenly.

Carry on...
