A Florida restaurant owner is making waves. He placed copies of Colin Kaepernick’s football jersey on each of his businesses urinals. That will sure make the progressives and Black Lives Matter activists go crazy. The establishment in question is the Winners Circle Sportsbar & Grill owned and operated by Bill Alcock in Lakeland. What made people go even crazier over Alcock’s actions was his renaming Kaepernick’s last name as “Kaeperdick.”
Alcock told the WFLA media outlet why he was so enraged when Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem,
“When the whole Colin Kaepernick thing came about, him not standing for the national anthem, I was kind of offended by it. My dad was a Marine. I just thought it was very, very disrespectful.”
The sign on the front door of the restaurant indicates that it is not a place known for being, “politically correct.” The sign reads,
“This bar is politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas, God Bless. We salute the flag and things like that.”
Some customers did not mind the decals on the urinals while others took offense to it. But since the restaurant does not care much about being politically correct as they said, I don’t think they will mind all that much.
One customer named Mike Lee told WFLA,
“I laughed, just like most people laughed. I thought it was a pretty funny idea. If you don’t like it, there are several other stalls that you can choose from so you know. Don’t pee on it.”
However, another customer went on to Facebook and they had a very different opinion arguing that the local on the urinals was punishing and mocking Kaepernick for simply stating and standing up for his beliefs. But Alcock does not really care and stated that what he did by placing the decals on the urinals was perfectly within his First Amendment right of free speech and expression to protest against Kaepernick. He went on to say that he hopes others will follow suit too.
“I do believe in freedom of speech and everything like that, but it’s just a little message that you not disrespect the flag, and don’t disrespect our military. That’s what I think it is. This gives you a little chance to disrespect his jersey, a target of sorts.”
While the mainstream media is showing an immense amount of coverage on pro Colin Kaepernick supports and arguments there is very little shown on those who disagree with him. But this story perfectly represents how many people feel about Kaepernick’s ridiculous and disgraceful behavior.
