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.”

Lee Francis, Teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, NC Suspended after American Flag-Stomping Faux First Amendment Lesson


Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, has been put on suspension with pay after he placed an American flag on the ground and stepped on it in an so-called effort to teach children about freedom of speech. The backlash from this disgusting act has been swift and massive on social media and from the public at large. The top school system administrator, Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Frank Till said in a statement, “Clearly, there are other ways to teach First Amendment rights without desecrating the flag.” However, the radical leftist teacher said he’s been shocked by the backlash, both in-person and on social media, that his lesson has generated. REALLY, WHAT KIND OF A CLUELESS INDIVIDUAL ARE YOU? This fool is shocked that people would be outraged that you used a school setting to desecrate an American flag in a state that has so many military installations!

A note to Lee Francis and the rest of the American hating liberal teachers in America … the majority of people in the U.S. love America and they don’t need you stomping on a flag to provide them with a lesson on free speech. This was just a hateful act of a liberal trying to spew their venom on children. Nothing more.

A teacher’s First Amendment lesson at a Fayetteville high school has sparked outrage and he has been place on leave by school officials.

Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, said he put an American flag on the ground and stepped on it. But, he said, it was in the context of a lesson on freedom of speech.

“I put it on the ground and I used my right foot and I took two steps on it, and immediately two kids get out of the room,” he said.

A number of residents denounced Francis’ actions, calling them unpatriotic.

“I think it’s inappropriate to teach that in school,” said Fayetteville resident Grayson Chavonne. “If he wants to do that in his own home that’s his prerogative, but it doesn’t need to be taught to our kids.”

Dan Travieso, who is running for the N.C. Senate in District 21, called Francis’ lesson a direct insult to those who fought for our country and a “poor choice of judgment.”

“Just because I step on the flag doesn’t mean I step on their graves,” Francis said. “It doesn’t mean I step on their bodies as they return from overseas. It means I step on a piece of fabric.”

This fool’s statement shows just how little this man really knows and why he should never be teaching children. Guess what you moron, people have given their lives to defend the flag that is symbolic of America and liberty. Yes you were disrespecting those that died defending it and if you can’t understand that, you should be no where near teaching children.

September 11, 2016 … 15 Years Have Passed Since the Islamic Terror Attacks on America … Have You Forgotten? Please Honor the Fallen & Please Don’t Ever Forget

15 years since September 11 …

It is just hard to believe that it has been 15 years since that beautiful, peaceful Fall September day when America was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists  and the world would be changed forever.  The horror and the tragedy that saw nearly 3000 people die as of both towers of the World Trade Center falling in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, DC under attack and hit by a plane and the heroes of flight 93 downing the plane in a filed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania saving countless many. Have you forgotten?


I ask you on this 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks to hot only remember the victims and heroes of 9-11, but to honor them as well. The reality is that those lost on that fateful day could have been any of us. And today, some 15 years later after America was attacked by radical Islam, we are still dealing with this menace. We can not only remember those that have fallen, the best way that we can honor all those who lost their lives that September day is rid the world once and for all of this vile evil. God Bless all who perished that day and a special prayer to the family, friends and loved ones of those lost that day.

9-11 Cross

We remember and honor those who perished on AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 11, AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 77, UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 175, UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 93, the World Trade Center in NYC and at the Pentagon in Washington, DC.

We live in a world that is more dangerous than September 11, 2001 because of political correctness and cowardly leaders not willing to admit the truth and who and what we are frighting. Make no mistake, America never has declared war on Islam, however, radical Islam has declared war on the West and America.

 At this point, all that’s left for Katie Ledecky to chase is history.

So she does.

The 19-year-old swimming superstar entered these Olympics as the current world-record holder in the 400, 800 and 1,500 meter freestyles. The challenge when she swims those events here? To beat her past, slower self.

On Sunday night, she did just that, knocking nearly two seconds off the world record in the 400 free to secure her first gold medal of these Games. She won in 3:56.46, followed by Britain’s Jazz Carlin and American Leah Smith, who were almost five seconds behind.
