You don't care, yet you put in that infamous word "but" before explaining why you actually really do care. You somehow know that it's a clear sign of disrespect with literally no proof. Has a current player who took a knee ever say something like "f this country" or something in a quote that you can share?

But it's still clearly a form of civil disobedience, meant to "opt out" of patriotism, loyalty, etc.
Again it's not. It's shining a light on an ongoing issue in this country while still showing reverence to those who have served in this country.

I want to know at which point in history did kneeling turn into disrespect?
