The mainstream media and Leftists are supporting the poor behavior of Kaepernick. They seem to appreciate the disrespect that he is showing. They like it soo much that Nike picked up the Kaepernick because they knew that there are enough foolish anti-Americans that it would not affect them in the long run. But there are plenty of Americans out there that still stand for the flag and all she stands for. There are people out there that like sports and are respectful of the troops.
The Atlanta Braves reserve a seat in their stadium to honor all of the POWs and missing in action. During the games, a JROTC Marine will stand at attention next to the seat, regardless of the weather. It was raining one game and a fan saw what was going and instead of taking a knee or protesting he stepped up and pulled out an umbrella and stood next to the marine giving him protection from the rain.
“Since World War I more than 92,000 American soldiers are unaccounted for,” a plaque next to the chair reads. “This unoccupied seat is dedicated to the memory of these brave men and women and to the sacrifice they made in serving this country.”
This is what it means to be in the military, having the will to serve your country. These brave men and women fight for America and the freedoms that we have, well aware that they may lose their lives in the process. That’s why it is disrespectful and unacceptable that Kaepernick behaves the way he does.
A military commander commented on his shameful kneeling.
U.S. Pacific Command Commander Admiral Harry Harris made the following claim.
“You can bet that the men and women we honor today, and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago, never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,”
Maybe we should reinstitute the draft then players like Kaepernick would be getting an education on what it means to sacrifice and the importance of our flag. Instead, he is encouraged by the MSM and leftists to make a mockery of our anthem and protests the very thing that represents the military and our freedoms.
