Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says of Colin Kaepernick’s Protesting During National Anthem … “I Think It’s Dumb and Disrespectful”
It just goes to show you that those on the Left and Right can agree on some things …
In an interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated that Colin Kaepernick’s protest during the national anthem and those that do the same as “dumb and disrespectful.” She went on to say that it isn’t a crime to protest the National Anthem and no one should ever be arrested for doing so, but she opined, “I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.” Needless to say, Ginsburg, a darling of the LEFT, has upset the unhinged Left with her comments.
It is rather remarkable that some one on the LEFT like Justice Ginsburg would have such an opinion like this but we have to remember … there used to be a time on the Left where liberals actually liked and respected America. The Democrat party used to be for the working, blue color people, not the socialist party that it has turned into today.
In “My Own Words,” a new compilation of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s writings over the course her lifetime, the vim and vigor that she is famous for expressing from the Supreme Court bench is just as apparent in her high school editorials.
Ginsburg has spent decades weighing in on issues most important to her — such as gender and religion — and in a new interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, she did not mince words when weighing in on the current election, the state of the court and controversy surrounding the national anthem.
With more and more football players across the country refusing to stand for the national anthem before games, Justice Ginsburg called the protest “dumb and disrespectful.”
When asked by Couric how she feels about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and others athletes, refusing to stand for the anthem, Ginsburg replied, “I think it’s really dumb of them.”
“Would I arrest them for doing it? No,” Ginsburg elaborated. “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. 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 lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”
Real Life Tin Cup … Heckler David Johnson Sinks 12-Foot Putt that Team Europe’s McIlroy & Stenson Consistently Missed During Ryder Cup Practice Round & Fans Go Crazy (VIDEO)
ONE IN A MILLION OPPORTUNITY AND SHOT AT THE RYDER CUP …
If all else fails for the Americans at this year’s Ryder Cup, they can always sign up David Johnson to play a round. Who you ask? Why David Johnson of course. He had been heckling Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson who had been consistently missing a 12 foot putt. Enter David Johnson of North Dakota who shouted to the players that even he could make that putt. The two Euro players took him up on his challenge, handed him the putter, placed a C-note on the green and the rest is “Tin Cup” golf lore.
This might actually be the best thing ever.
During a practice round on Thursday at the Ryder Cup, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson were practicing a 12 foot putt that they just couldn’t make. Six times each they missed, according to the PGA Tour’s Ben Everill, at which point fan David Johnson of North Dakota shouted to the players that even he could make that putt.
Stenson pulled him onto the green and handed him a putter, while Justin Rose plopped down a crisp $100. If he could make the putt on his first try, he could keep it.

THE NFL AND SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS ARE TREADING ON THIN ICE WITH THIS ONE …
The Santa Clara police union members have warned the San Francisco 49ers that they may stop providing security at their games over quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest against systemic racism. And so they should. If the big mouth, misinformed and misguided 49ers QB wants to mouth off and the NFL and San Francisco 49er ownership want to support him that is their right. However, it is also the police’s right to tell the team to find their own security. Honestly, who would want to provide security to an organization that thinks it is perfectly okay from one of their players to wear socks with pigs wearing police hats mocking the police?
So the NFL would not let the Dallas Cowboys remember the fallen Dallas police officers, but they allow this crap to happen. Keep it up NFL.
Santa Clara police union members have warned the San Francisco 49ers that they may stop providing security at their games over quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest against systemic racism.
Urging team owners to reprimand Kaepernick for sitting during the national anthem and speaking out against police violence, the union said failure to do so “could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities,” according to a letter obtained by NBC Bay Area.
“I’m already hearing it this week that next week on Monday Night Football, some officers are not going to work,” Santa Clara Police Officers Association president Frank Saunders told the network.
Saunders said his officers are angry that the 49ers star has spoken out against cops who have gotten “away with murder” in fatal shootings of black Americans, and that he wore socks in practice that showed pigs wearing police uniforms.
“The 49ers are allowing this to come out from an employee and it’s making for a hostile work environment for us at the stadium,” Saunders told NBC.
The team has chosen not to discipline Kaepernick for choosing to sit during “The Star Spangled Banner, citing the principles of “freedom of religion and freedom of expression.”
San Fransisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick Refused to Stand ‘to Protest Black Oppression’ as the QB Makes $114 Million Playing Football
I feel like I need to borrow a line from Monty Python after listening to the stupidity and ignorance of Colin Kaepernick, “Can’t I have just a little bit of oppression.”
Over the weekend, San Fransisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the playing of the United States National Anthem during a preseason game. He told the media he will continue to sit. When asked about his decision to sit while the national anthem played, Kaepernick said he refuses to feel pride in a country that mistreats ‘black people and people of color’. HA, this coming from a man, who has a black father, who was put up for adoption and raised by a white couple to be able to go to college and play a game that makes him $114 million. Yup Colin, the America flag is just keeping you down. WHAT AN ASS. Last time I checked, being oppressed was not in a country where one could make $ 114 million. Colin Kaepernick has been outspoken on racial issues in the past and openly supports the Black Lives Matter movement, need we say more. The cynical side of me says he did this because he knows he was not going to make the team and was going to be cut. He can now use this as his excuse why he was cut and not his terrible play.
With all the suspensions that the NFL hands out for not representing the brand properly, will they let Colin Kaepernick skate on this? Kaepernick can sit all he wants for the National Anthem cuz it might just be from his own easy boy chair on Sundays.
Kaepernick would be #7 sitting between the two orange Gatorade jugs.
Minnesota Vikings offensive guard Alex Boone is among those who do not agree with Kaepernick at all.
In reaction, many 49ers fans are burning their jersey’s in protest.
Furious San Francisco 49ers fans are burning Colin Kaepernick jerseys after he refused to stand for the national anthem as part of a racial protest.
One fan even played The Star-Spangled Banner as he set light to the Number 7 shirt, watching with his hand on his chest as it was reduced to ash.
Another, who uploaded a video to Instagram under the handle Nate3914, called the $19million-per-year athlete an ‘ignorant son of a b****.’
He added: ‘People die every single day defending that flag you refuse to stand for and I won’t stand for that.’
‘This jersey was the worst $50 investment I have ever had … you should never play in the NFL again, move to Canada.’
Thousands of football fans also took to Twitter in order to shout down Kaepernick’s protests, accusing him of being unpatriotic, spoiled, and childish.
The idiots at the liberal sports entertainment network know as ESPN think that it is just Donald Trump supporters who are against Kaepernick’s actions. Hmm, I thought that on air ESPN personalities were not supposed to express their political points of view? At least that is what they told Curt Shilling when they fired him. Of course they only want to spew their liberal propaganda. Newsflash to ESPN, if you think only Trump supporters are pissed off with Kaepernick’s actions, it is no wonder your network is losing market-share, talent and now sucks!
Apparently those who profess to be most offended by stereotyping and profiling are taking a break, to stereotype and profile Republicans and conservatives.
Reacting to criticism of Colin Kaepernick for sitting during the National Anthem on Friday night, ESPN’s Pablo S. Torre took to Twitter with an open mind, and absolutely no sweeping generalizations:
Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.
Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.
Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.
The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.
She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.
Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana
Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.
Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
