Favorite Quotes: Faux Patriotism from NFL Protest Haters

“There’s a lot of racism in this country disguised as patriotism.”

-Colin Kaepernick

At first I was rather skeptical of Colin Kaepernick's protests, but I then heard his reasoning why and that he switched from sitting down to kneeling during the national anthem due to a NFL and military veteran's suggestion. But that wasn't good enough for racist white people who somehow think kneeling for a cross should be mandatory (not many of them actually believe in religious freedom) but kneeling for an anthem is disrespectful. And somehow these protests are "Un-American" while suggesting Trump's collusion with Russia is not a reason to be impeached. It was never about the anthem.
