At a ceremony in Hawaii on Wednesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris burned the anti-American quarterback who kneels during the National Anthem.
That comment drew “a lengthy standing ovation from the crowd, with people whistling and hooting.”
“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,” Harris said.
Kaepernick started to kneel for the national anthem this preseason, and said he was doing so to bring attention to racial oppression and police brutality. He also wore a shirt with the late mass murdering communist Fidel Castro on it at a presser, later praising his nonexistent contributions to education and healthcare.
Because of what he has done and because the NFL and ESPN have followed suit, they are all losing support.
