Navy admiral rips Kaepernick in Pearl Harbor speech
A Navy admiral is blasting sports stars for protesting the national anthem.
U.S. Pacific Command Commander Harry Harris’s rebuke earned him a standing ovation Wednesday during his speech honoring the 75th anniversary of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
“You can bet that the men and women we honor today — and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago — never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” he said at Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii.
Harris, who is charged with overseeing U.S. armed forces operations in the Pacific region, did not mention San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick or other athletes by name in his remarks.

This what Colin Kaepernick and other people on the left will never understand.
They think their protests are patriotic but they never stop to consider that the only reason they can protest is because other, truly patriotic people, fought for their right to do so.
