49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is just disgraceful. By now you’ve heard how he refused to stand for the National Anthem at a preseason game with the Green Bay Packers. Instead he stay seated to make a statement for Black Lives Matter saying that he’s “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” He claimed there were bodies in the streets, cops on paid leave and officers getting away with murder. Kaepernick is the poster child for what a racist, cop-hating anti-American looks like. He’s worth $126 million and is (or was) idolized by millions. He has a rich, pampered lifestyle because he is a great athlete. But a patriot, he is not.
Do you want to know what a real American patriot looks like? He looks like Marine Corps Sgt. Zachary Stinson, who lost both legs in Afghanistan in 2010 to an IED while defending his country. A man who would give anything to be able to stand and honor his nation. You want real oppression? Try the Islamic Jihadist variety, not some fake non-existent racial oppression used as a political weapon of racial supremacy. Stinson is a true hero who sacrificed everything for his country… something Kaepernick could never understand.
From BizPac Review:
Claiming a cause “bigger than football,” San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” Friday night at the opening of a preseason game with the Green Bay Packers.
But he was quickly put in his place by the image of a wounded warrior.
The $126 million player claimed that the flag represents “a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
But when this photograph of a U.S. Marine standing proudly as tall as he could hit social media, it put everything into proper perspective.
It’s Kaepernick’s right to not rise for our National Anthem. It’s also our right to turn away from him and not watch his games anymore.
He says his issue of racial persecution is bigger than football. Perhaps in his limited worldview that is true, but patriotism is far bigger than delusional oppression. A lessen this idiot seems to have never learned. The picture of the wounded Marine went uber viral in testament to how revolted Americans are by Kaepernick’s actions.
Kaepernick is biracial and was adopted and raised by white parents according to NFL Media. He’s now fighting for his career over this, as he may very well be benched for the entire season for a number of reasons. No sympathy here and I hope he does warm that bench… he doesn’t even deserve that… he should be cut from the team and all of our memories period.
