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.”

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory Calls out National Guard as Charlotte Police Shooting Protests Turn into Riots for Second Night

The North Carolina Governor has called out the National Guard and declared a sate of emergency in Charlotte as for a second night their were protests, riots and looting in response to the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. The National Guard is to assist the police in maintaining order which seems to have gotten completely out of control. Exactly how is looting, destroying property and harming others a manner of protesting an individual shot by a police officer? That is a riot, not a protest.

Second night of violent protests over Charlotte police shooting

Check out the protesting HERE which amounts to nothing more than an act of vandalism.

Protests turned violent for a second night in Charlotte after Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of a black man. Late Wednesday, Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency for the city and deployed the National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers to assist local police.

One person was shot at the protest and was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, Medic said. The city initially reported that he died, but later retracted that, saying he was on life-support.

Medic said on Twitter that it was treating the patient for a gunshot wound en route to Carolinas Medical Center at about 8:45 p.m.

The person was shot in the area of North College and East Trade streets.

Medic said it was responding to “multiple incidents uptown related to the situation in the College Street area” but was no more specific.

The shooting was “civilian on civilian,” the city tweeted. “@CMPD did not fire shot.”

“The state has many additional assets nearby to assist,” McCrory said. “Any violence directed toward our citizens or police officers or destruction of property should not be tolerated.”

Bernie Sanders Fans Make Their Voices Heard on DNC Floor with Establishment (VIDEO)

More discontent by the Bernie Sanders folks at the Democrat National Committee today amidst the DNC email scandal. The Democrats have already lost control of the event.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Chant ‘Hell No, DNC, We Won’t Vote For Hillary’ Outside of Democratic National Convention (VIDEO)

BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS LOATH HILLARY CLINTON

In the wake of the DNC email scandal and ahead of the start of the DNC, Bernie Sanders supporters chanted, ‘Hell No, DNC, We Won’t Vote For Hillary’. Bernie Sanders may endorse Hillary Clinton and beg his supporters to vote for Hillary; however, that possibility seems hardly likely. Sanders’ supporters know they were screwed, even if Sanders wants to goose step to Hillary’s beat.

Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia’s sweltering streets Sunday, cheering, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the city wilted during a heat wave.

Throngs of Bernie Sanders supporters marched down a main thoroughfare to show their support of him and disdain for Hillary Clinton ahead of the convention.

Chanting “Hell No, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary” and “This is what democracy looks like,” the marchers headed from City Hall down Broad Street, the main north-south artery that leads from the city center to the convention site about 4 miles away.

Bernie Sanders Booed by Sanders’ Supporters as He Urges That They Vote for Hillary Clinton (VIDEO)

BERNIE FEELS THE “BERN” FROM HIS OWN SUPPORTERS …

Today Bernie Sanders learned the difference between an election and a movement. Sanders was booed by his own delegates and supporters as he urged the voters to vote for Hillary Clinton. The crowd wanted no part of it. Sanders supporters are pissed and feel that they had the nomination robbed from them. Guess what, they did. For months Sanders had stated that the system was rigged. Thanks to Wikileaks and the leaked DNC emails, that is exactly what happened. Now that the truth is out, Sanders supporters want their pound of flesh and want no part about hearing they should vote for Hillary. This is what a political movement looks like, its not a BS campaign where one bows down and admits defeat, especially when they probably should never have lost.

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders booed and jeered when as the Vermont lawmaker and former presidential contender told them, “We must elect Hillary Clinton.”

Appearing for the first time this week in Philadelphia, where the Democratic National Convention kicked off this afternoon, Sanders tried to control the room and his fans.

“Brothers and sisters, this is the real world that we live in,” he said. “[Donald] Trump is a bully and a demagogue. Trump, Trump has made bigotry and hatred the cornerstone of his campaign.”

But the crowd, in the last sign of the party struggling for any sense of unity, chanted, “We want Bernie!”
