Sometimes, I’m amazed at self-loathing Americans who revel in their hatred for this country. Professionals who play football, baseball and basketball should be especially grateful since these sports were created in the United States. They have been provided opportunities and wealth that is the envy of the world. That’s why athletes from all walks of life come here to play. America is where they want to display their talents.
But here we have another punk whose ingratitude knows no bounds. Colin Kaepernick, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, refuses to stand for the national anthem because he’s “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color.”
Well, that’s okay. In America, a talented scumbag can make millions of dollars playing a child’s game while denigrating the most generous and selfless country this world has ever known. We can take solace that the Colin Kaepernicks that contaminate this country are few.
Thank God, we have citizens who take pride in their heritage and are willing to make sacrifices. These patriots live the American creed and are not ashamed to display it even when they’ve lost the ability to stand.
