Last week, 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.
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.”
Yesterday, we reported that San Francisco police officers had written a letter to the 49ers threatening to boycott working security at their games if Kaepernick is not disciplined. Now, the 49ers are firing back…
Colin Kaepernick is going to be able to continue his anti-America, anti-police protest to start the NFL season.
The San Francisco 49ers made its final roster cuts on Sunday but the controversial quarterback was not among them, despite a threat from the local police union to boycott the team’s games if disciplinary action wasn’t taken.
“If the 49ers organization fails to take action to stop this type of inappropriate behavior it could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities,” a letter from the Santa Clara Police Union read. “The board of directors of the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association has a duty to protect its members and work to make all of their working environments free of harassing behavior.”
But Kaepernick won’t only be sitting for the National Anthem.
