    Re: Kaepernick: Won't stand for 'oppressive' national anthem

    This whole thing is ridiculous. Kaepernick thinking his sitting during the national anthem is a viable protest is ludicrous. If it weren't for the media spotting him sitting and reporting it, no one, NO ONE, would have even NOTICED his "protest." And some people are calling his "protest" a bold statement. SERIOUSLY????? HOW IN THE WORLD IS WHAT HE DID BOLD?!?!?! Kaepernick's action was not making a statement. It was akin to a 12 year old mumbling something behind the teacher's back then, after school, telling other kids what he said as though he said it to the teacher's face.


    If he really cared, he would have expressed his displeasure by calling a press conference, posting on social media, issuing a public statement, or - gasp - showing up at a REAL protest. And, he could have done any of those, gosh, ANYTIME since Ferguson, MO. But no. Kaepernick remained silent because he didn't want outright draw attention to himself and risk losing endorsement deals, losing fan adulation, or hurting his public image. Instead, he chose a form of protest very likely to go unnoticed AND didn't require him to go on record unless, UNLESS, someone noticed and asked him what he was doing.


    I used to respect Kaepernick and was a fan. Not anymore.

    Trump is applauded by millions for "telling it like it is" even if that means trashing veterans, women, Hispanics, blacks, and a lot of other groups. Double standard?

    Trump is the only one telling it like it is. Kaepernick is under the spell of his muslim girlfriend.

    But yet, HRC went to his wedding and her foundation took money from him. So by the democrats definition, HRC has to also be a bigot. Surprised no one has asked about this.
