The story never ends. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been dominating the headlines for the past few weeks for his refusal to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance, with the justification that “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Kaepernick has personally been so oppressed in America that he was adopted and raised by two white parents, and now earns nearly $20 million a year. Oppressed people don’t have the freedom of foregoing their nation’s pledge either.
He’s even managed to find some other multimillionaires to join him in his fight against non-existent oppression.
The man has been criticized by everyone and their mother it seems (including Kaepernick’s own mother, ironically). The number of celebrities criticizing him is endless – James Woods, Shaq, Kate Upton, and many of his fellow NFL players.
As the Daily Caller reports, Kid Rock had emerged as the latest celebrity to blast the football star. It came right before Rock’s performance of “Born Free,” a patriotic pro-American song. An enormous American flag made for the ultimate backdrop to the anthem, but it’s what he said before the song began that’s making headlines.
“F— Colin Kaepernick!” shouted to the crowd at Fenway Park late Saturday night during his concert as he sang his hit song “Born Free.”
Watch the video below. It goes without saying that there’s explicit language.
Thousands of fans cheered – which is nice to see in the insane world of political correctness we now live in. The entertainment industry is a hive of liberalism, so it’s refreshing to see musicians go against the grain and speak up for what Americans are really thinking.
