#DonnieTheHypocrite

Kaepernick ignited a firestorm last Friday by refusing to stand during the national anthem when it was played before the 49ers game against the Green Bay Packers.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick explained to NFL Media in an interview published Saturday…

“I think it’s — personally — not a good thing,” Trump said on the “Dori Monson Show” on Monday, as BuzzFeed reported. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him…

What Donnie The Hypocrite is really saying:  “I’m gonna run for president and complain about how we need to make America great again. But if others want to make America great again by standing up against racism and discrimination, well then, fuck you.”

  1. I’m with you 100%…..well, 99%. Because although I’d happily set fire to Trump (I’m thinking of the George Carlin flame throwers bit here, have you seen it?), my husband, FIL, my father, my first step-dad, and my son have all served in the military so that’s what my flag means to me.
    And having spent the last 3 years teaching American History (I homeschool the kid. Living an hour from DC makes teaching history *awe* some!) I know…..Lawd, do I know, we need some help. And some changes.
    We are headed to another civil war and it scares the crap out of me.

    • As far as black people are concerned, the Civil War never really ended. And for the poor, not too much has changed. Trump supporters are not my enemy — the drug war is. And hopefully, both sides agree that the drug war is a failure.

      For me, the flag is just a symbol, like a cop’s badge. And symbols cannot represent everyone in this country. We are not the best country on Earth — if we ever were — and refusing to worship a symbol doesn’t mean we want to live somewhere else. As I recently told a Republican who suggested the same thing to me: Dude, I’m not going anywhere. Better get used to it. 🙂

      • I hear you. I meant to try to convey that I agree. The drug war is a failure. And I grew up in poor parts of town. And it all feels so much worse now.
        The flag *is* a symbol, but (like you said) it’s just a symbol. But for me and mine it shows respect too, so I get both sides.
        Am I beating a dead horse? I feel like we’re agreeing (or trying to agree) and I won’t shut up? 😉
