Over the past few months, Americans have watched as athletes have taken a knee during the National Anthem in protest. Colin Kaepernick of the San Fransico 49er’s is the one player that started this offensive trend, and there are no plans of him stopping anytime soon. Yesterday, during the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor one U.S. Navy Admiral had some harsh words for the controversial player that had everyone on their feet.
A U.S. Navy admiral received a standing ovation for calling out Colin Kaepernick at an event commemorating the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
During the ceremony, U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr. took a swipe at the San Francisco 49ers quarterback for refusing to stand during the national anthem.
“You can bet that the men and women that we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand when they heard our national anthem being played,” Harris said.
The admiral goes on around the 47:00 mark and you can hear for yourself what he has to say.
If words could be a metaphorical throat punch then what Harris said would be it.
While Kaepernick may be protected under free speech what he is doing is highly disrespectful. Men and women have fought and died to protect this country from its enemies and to protect our way of life. If Kaepernick has any issues with what is happening in the country that he can be a solution to it, rather than stir up more controversy.
The greatest generation we have ever seen is rapidly dying off, and I am sad to see how far we have fallen. At one time, we had brave men and women who would defend America to the death, and now we have pussies crying for safe spaces and trophies.
I can only hope that we will be able to turn the pussification of America around before it is too late.
