On Friday night, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines 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.”
Now, proud conservative Tomi Lahren has had enough of Kaepernick’s anti-American attitude. She addressed the NFL star directly during her show this week.
“Colin, I support the First Amendment,” Tomi said, according to The Blaze. “I support your right to freedom of speech and expression. Go for it, bud. It’s this country, the country you have so much disdain for that allows you to speak your mind. It protects your right to be a whiny adult, indulgent, attention-seeking, crybaby. It also protects my right to shred you for it.”
“See. That national anthem and our flag, they are not symbols of black America, white America, brown America or purple America, for that matter,” she continued. “There are patriots of every race who have fought and died for this country. And we honor the flag and sing the anthem as a reminder.”
“And if this country disgusts you so much, leave.”
And Tomi was just getting started…Watch the rest of her rant in the video above!
