U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr.

Colin Kaepernick previously said he doesn’t want to offend veterans with his protest against the National Anthem, but veterans at Pearl Harbor made it very clear they they do indeed find him offensive.

U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr. took a big swipe at Kapernick at the 75th anniversary of Japan’s attack onĀ US soil.

“You can bet that the men and women that we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand when they heard our national anthem being played,” Harris said.

The audience gave a lengthy standing ovation to that comment directed at Kaepernick. Maybe that will give the failing quarterback a clue.

You can watch the veterans’ reactions in the video below.

It should be clear to Kaepernick that his protest is indeed offensive. An Admiral stating this on such a sacred occasion signifies how veterans feel. These are men and women who put their lives on the line to protect Kaepernick’s freedom to be stupid. And while it’s legally acceptable for him to protest, that doesn’t make it right.

Share this if you support our veterans and our National Anthem!
