Over the weekend, we reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick turned on America on Friday when he refused to stand as the national anthem played before a game. Within 24 hours, fans were burning his jersey to let him know that what he did was wrong.
Kaepernick tried to defend his shameful show of disrespect by race-baiting.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Last night, Kaepernick took the field for the first time since his protest, and he once again sat during the national anthem. Since it was military night at the San Diego stadium he was playing in, he was immediately met with a chorus of resounding boos from the crowd.
According to Breitbart, U.S. Navy veteran J.D. McCallum showed up to the game with a sign for Kaepernick that read, “COLIN, RESPECT OR LEAVE WHAT US VETERANS FOUGHT FOR.”
“I want to support our troops, me and my fellow veterans,” said McCallum, adding that Kaepernick was “disrespecting our flag and everything that we fought for.”
This came after Kaepernick disrespected fallen veterans by saying that they are dying for nothing.
“People are dying in vain because this country isn’t holding their end of the bargain up, as far as giving freedom and justice, liberty to everybody,” he said. “That’s something that’s not happening. I’ve seen videos, I’ve seen circumstances where men and women that have been in the military have come back and been treated unjustly by the country they have fought for, and have been murdered by the country they fought for, on our land. That’s not right.”
Actually, Colin, our veterans have died to protect the rights of entitled nitwits like you, and they DESERVE your respect!
