Last month, 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.”
Since then, Kaepernick’s protests have spread through the football world like wildfire, and now even liberal justices on the Supreme Court have had enough.
Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg is a proud race-baiter herself, but she has no love for the entitled NFL players who are disrespecting our national anthem.
“I think it’s really dumb of them,” Ginsberg said of the players, according to American News. “Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it’s dumb and disrespectful.”
The 83 year-old judge went on to compare Kaepernick to flag-burners.
“I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t look a person up for doing it,” she continued. “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”
Ginsberg isn’t the only person who has had enough of Kaepernick’s nonsense. A new poll has found that a whopping 47% of Americans disagree with what he is doing, and the NFL has seen a massive drop in ratings since the protests began.
