Dale Earnhardt Jr. defended the right to peaceful protests by tweeting a JFK quote even as NASCAR threatens to fire anyone who protests the national anthem and the flag.

Earnhardt tweeted: “All Americans r granted rights 2 peaceful protests. Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable — JFK.”

Earnhardt fired back at Trump’s tweet praising NASCAR for threatening the violat the First Amendment rights of its drivers:

Earnhardt joins a growing chorus of athletes from different sports who are hitting back at Donald Trump’s racist attacks on black NFL players who take a knee during the anthem. Trump’s attacks have backfired as more and more players took a knee yesterday, while others, along with team owners and employees, locked arms in solidarity against his divisive attacks.
