The San Francisco 49ers Disrespected The Anthem, Kaepernick Is Certainly Proud

Colin Kaepernick started the anthem protests when he was a quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers. And now with him gone his teammates are continuing his tradition of disrespecting the national anthem and the flag.

On Sunday prior to the game with Arizona Cardinals nearly 30 payers knelt during the anthem and the others were standing behind them in solidarity.

The 49ers issued a statement with the reasons why the whole team protested, saying it was an act of unity.

For more than a year, members of our team have protested the oppression and social injustices still present in our society. While some may not have taken a knee or raised a fist, we have all shared the desire to influence positive change. Today, our team chose to publicly display our unity in a new way and, in turn, urge others do the same. Our demonstration is simply a representation of how we hope our country can also come together by putting differences aside and solving its problems.”

“Make no mistake, we love this great country and have tremendous respect for our military and veterans who have sacrificed so much for our right to express ourselves freely. We passionately want what is best for this country and all its citizens,” it continued.

When Kaepernick started the protests last season he said he didn’t want to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    America is a free country, there are many ways to protest against that which you perceive to wrong, but showing disrespect towards your flag and national anthem is disgusting behaviour. Any normal minded person would know that this kind of behaviour would offend many people deeply, and yet that is what they choose to do. They are purposely causing a rift in society and there is a (not so well hidden) agenda. Racial hatred is very easy to spread. The people behind this don’t want stability and harmony in America, or the world for that matter.

    Should have come up with a different solution, we are not buying this one,social injustice has NOTHING to do with what you are doing,protesting on company time isn’t allowed at any business that I know of or you would be fired,why should you be any different

      Omg. Obama started this crap. PRESIDENT Trump just got in office. He is dealing with a lot of Natural disasters.

      I think you mean Obama. It was under Him that this crap started, and he berated the Police BEFORE he even Knew Details involving any Black/Police Crimes!
      Obama is the one that Divided this Country and that is Exactly what he Wanted to do..
      Pres Trump just spoke up for Many of us that are Tired of hearing and Seeing this Crap!!

      If you think people are Oppressed in America, then Leave and go to a Country where There is Real Oppression. Like Cuba!
      Get the hell out of America if you hate it so much!

        Angela Hallelujah! People blame the wrong person for this crap! Obama wanted division and GOT it. Obama did not help the blacks at all, he hindered them.

      Rogelio Escobedo, Your opinion SUCKS! It was broken long before Pres. Trump got in! He wants America to be Great Again. And this is still an ‘unforgettable act’ against the veterans and the Flag/National Anthem. They/nor I will never accept this as an excuse for their traitorous actions against Americans.

      Are you stinking kidding me? This racism had reared its ugly head when the so-called black president obama started this crap. Crap is what it is…….If he truly had a legal birth certificate it would show his mom as white(always race of the Mom not Dad) and the race of the baby is always the race of the mother!! It is a federal white paper that all nurses/midwives/Dr’s sign at the time of birth with a fingerprint of mom and footprints of baby signed by RN that is present and Dr/midwife who delivers
      baby. Trump didn’t start this mess. The obamas were the most racist couple in modern history. They were proud of causing all the riots in Ferguson and elsewhere and all the police officers who were attacked. If it wasn’t so sad, it would be so laughable to think that the minority of these Americans actually believe this. Trump enabling racism? Sad and pathetic. Don’t utter Semper Fi……that is a disgrace for all of our Military.

    They should put their money where their mouth is. What are they doing to help? they are protesting but not doing anything. They should do what Gary Sinise has done for the Vets. Protesting and doing nothing to help shows their lack of caring.

      Traitors………. the NFL and it’s so called players are not on my TV view list any longer. If this goes on the NFL is dead in this country.

    oppresses black people??? What are black peoples not permitted o do??? Black people go to college, buy houses, buy new cars, become doctors lawyers and nurses and anesthesiologists and the list goes on.. Black people can own mansions just like Colin Kaepernick, and Kaye west. Black people can live anywhere they want. I know because I have black neighbors, my kids go to school with black children. So im not sure why they feel so oppressed?

    Agree with all but one, R. Escobedo. A true liberal Cupcake. Are you even Legal? Fans are speaking up by turning the nfl off, they loose enough money, maybe things will change, until then I’m done with the nfl!

    EVERYONE EVERYWHERE PUT YOUR TIME AND MONEY AS FAR AWAY FROM THESE LOSERS…..ALL THE OWNERS AND PLAYERS OF THE NFL AND BOYCOTT THEM UNTIL THEY ARE SO BROKE THEY WILL SEE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NOT STAND UP FOR THIS!!! We don’t need it and it is a pathetic thing.
    Money talks to people who care not for our country!!!

    Take your money and spend it on and support MLB and college ball. If they start it in college football than boycott it!

    This country and the citizens who have never done anything but disrespect it need to leave. See how bad it is…see how they pay and pamper you and treat you so great in Iran and Korea and then
    come back and complain. It has always been a shame anyway what they are paid. They are not worth it and all they do is drink and carry on except for a few of them, and get millions of dollars. Sick of the whole lot of them. MONEY talks. Don’t support them…if they do this as a whole stadium, if you still have season passes….stand up and boo them……turn your backs to them. Don’t buy there horrible merchandise. It’s time to stop this. I wouldn’t pay them a penny and go and watch them disrespect our country and military and our flag who so many died trying to keep their lousy selves safe. Makes me really sick.

    The NFL and teams like SF are digging their own grave. Their PR dept. Is working overtime to fool The public because They think the people are stupid. The people know what is going on and they don’t like it. Play Taps for the NFL and the 49ers.

    I’ve been a 49ers fan since Steve DeBerg was the QB. No More. If you want to express your opinion about something. Vote, write your congressman, write editorials, call for a press conference. the football field during the National Anthem is not the time or place.
