Anti-American former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick ignited a new national controversy.
Kaepernick convinced Nike to yank patriotic-themed sneakers with Betsy Ross’s Revolutionary War era American flag on them because he said the flag was racist.
And what someone on MSNBC said about the American flag will have your jaw on the ground.
The Fake News Media as well as prominent Democrats rallied around Kaepernick’s contention that the American flag is a symbol of slavery and oppression.
Presidential hopefuls Beto O’Rourke and Julian Castro applauded Nike’s decision and echoed Kaepernick’s smears about the flag.
On MSNBC, left-wing Georgetown University Sociology professor – and fake intellectual – Michael Eric Dyson – also rushed to Kaepernick’s side.
Dyson compared the image of the American flag to a Nazi swastika or the Klu Klux Klan burning a cross.
Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson compared the Betsy Ross American flag with the 13 stars representing the original colonies to the Nazi swastika and a burning Ku Klux Klan cross.
While discussing Nike canceling a release of shoes featuring the Ross flag after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick objected, Dyson said, “It hails from the revolutionary period of this nation’s founding which was deeply embroiled in, you know in enslavement, of the owners of slaves, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and the like. But also it’s the recent use of this flag that has been the most opprobrious. Right-wing white supremacists have used it as a rallying cry for their own cause. None of these flags are set in stone. It’s the moral ecology of the time. Right now this flag has been used by people who want to pummel African-Americans, Latinos, Jews and other people, Neo-Nazis that want to claim that they have the true copyright on American identity. So why not choose a flag that is representative of everybody? The diversity of identities, ideologies, people of color and mainstream people who exist in this country? That’s the kind of blowback against the use of this particular flag…
…Dyson said, “Words matter. Symbols matter, too, Why don’t we wear a swastika for July 4th? Because I don’t know, it makes a difference. The cross-burning on somebody’s lawn. Why don’t we just have a Nike celebration of the —well because those symbols are symbols of hate. So we can take PC culture back.”
Millions of Americans were repulsed by Kaepernick, Democrats, and the media’s behavior.
The flag is a symbol of unity and American pride.
Instead, liberals are trying to trash it as a mark of oppression and racism.
The media is going along for the ride to try and minimize the political fallout for the Democrats.
