As one answer to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel when our national anthem is playing before a football game instead of respecting our flag (which symbolizes his right to protest in this way), the General Manager of Krossroads Rock and Country Bar began using Kaepernick’s jersey—copies of which are available almost as ubiquitously as our flag—as a doormat at the establishment’s front entrance.
Naturally, the Left has gotten their collective panties in a twist over this. They’re calling this counterprotest
“racist” and…calling for a boycott of the bar. [One whiner objector] posted a picture of the taped-down jersey which has since been shared over 5,800 times on the social media platform.
Kaepernick can walk on our nation’s flag with his kneeling antics while our national anthem is playing, but it’s somehow not allowed to literally walk on his football jersey—which routinely is dragged through the mud in the course of those games in which Kaepernick is fortunate enough to play?
This is another example of the hypocrisy of the Left.
