Over the past week, many have come out with their anger at Colin Kaepernick for his refusal to stand for the National Anthem, and many have also stood for his right to NOT stand for it. Facts show an amazing turn of events if one simply digs deeper. Somewhere between the memes and the rhetoric from both sides sits one very important fact. It comes in the form of a U.S. Code per the National Anthem.
36 U.S. Code 301 – States the conduct for the National Anthem.
Now, if one wants to push the envelope a bit farther it is possible that his actions could very well fall under this code as well which would lay ground work for all of Black Lives Matter to be taken down as well.
18 U.S. Code 2383 – which would technically concider Keapernick’s actions as incitement of rebellion, among a couple of other things.
So, while we all argue the right and wrong of it, it appears that we may neglect to actually research our arguments. His background sits badly with many as well. Colin Keapernick was born to a white mother, he was adopted by a prominent and wealthy white family and has had the best of the best handed to him for most of his life. Yet he has reportedly converted to Islam and is a full backer of not only the Black Lives Matter hate group but of Shariah Law as well due to his recent engagement to a woman who also fully supports Black Lives Matter.
In a twist of pure irony Keapernick seems to be forgetting that the sport of Football as we play it is in fact an AMERICAN sport, an AMERICAN past-time, part of our AMERICAN culture. Literally meaning that by the mere act of belonging to the NFL he is violating his very stance against AMERICAN and it’s supposed oppression by making MILLIONS playing a game that literally supports the very country he is trying to shame.
If ignorance is bliss, then Colin Keapernick must be the happiest man on the planet.!!!
