Rob Lowe has become an outspoken Conservative in Liberal Hollywood. Recently, he opined on what the NFL should do to players who boycott the National Anthem.
A good, sensible idea:
Dear @NFL Any player wants to boycott the anthem on 9/11 should be asked to remain in the locker room until kick off. It’s not their moment.

Of course, he got reamed by Liberals on Twitter, claiming “Constitutional rights.” This was one of the tamer responses:
@RobLowe You don’t have to like it but it’s a basic constitutional right, my friend

And another got personal:
All the players should take a knee until Rob Lowe is in Jail IMO. @nifkinjuice @polearmguy @damienredicamn1 @ironghazi @RobLowe @NFL

A second Hollywood Conservative – Nick Searcy of Justified fame – jumped to Rob’s rescue:
There is not a basic constitutional right to be on a privately owned football team, Dufus. @VockLobster @RobLowe
— Yes, Nick $earcy! (@yesnicksearcy) September 11, 2016

He’s right. If NFL players want to register their displeasure with the National Anthem, they aren’t the only people with rights. The NFL owners have rights, too.
And so do the fans, as Nick Searcy pointed out:
I have a right to abstain too. And I will. @SpencerLeone@VockLobster@RobLowe@NFL@NFLPA
— Yes, Nick $earcy! (@yesnicksearcy) September 12, 2016
And one more fan brings up a good point:
EXACTLY. Totally agree Rob. If I were to protest at my job, Id be fired. Players need to protest outside the field https://t.co/j4rbGjpj78
