Kansas City Dead Tree Media Stands Up For Controversial NFL Anthem Protest

An interesting newspaper opinion today on the topic of the ongoing national anthem controversy which probably doesn't fall in line with most readers and voters in Red State Missouri and Kansas . . .

"President Barack Obama was right to explain on Monday at a news conference wrapping up an international economic summit in Asia that Kaepernick was like some professional athletes in the past who have exercised their constitutional right of free speech. They have come out on a social concern. “If nothing else, what he's done is he's generated more conversation around some topics that need to be talked about,” Obama said."

Good old Lewis Diuguid, always can be counted on to produce a bunch of irrational SJW drivel about a wildly overstated problem.

Correct 1:53. I noticed this Kaepernick fellow has no problem spending that filthy American money.

Kc dummies crying over a back-up QB taking a knee during the anthem...
Meanwhile, come Sunday, 70K+ drunk good ol' boys will disrespect the same tune, singing "home of the CHIEFS"...

Motivated protest vs. stupid and/or drunk disrespect.

This guy had pretty much played his way out of pro football so he probably decided he needed a new career path. Refusing to stand for the national anthem will endear him to journalists and perhaps start his second career in the media.

this doesn't amount to much.

His latest squeeze is a racialist radio personality in the SFO area. She has been educating Kaepernick on the basics of Whitey hating. He appears to be a quick study - the 49ers wish he had done that well with the playbook.

No surprise here! Libtards always gravitate to the lowest denominator. If there is a low life out there with a cause you can bet your ass they will jump on the spin wagon and turn a scumbag into a poor little victim. Fortunately the Star is nothing more than the mouse that roared.

Using a cause to get/keep you in the NFL is a smart strategy. Michael Samm utilized it effectively also.

Why did it take him so long to give a shit? More air-time. Magazines, tv, commercials, great way to get your name out there. Is he any good? Better not get hurt. Or is he one hit away from being an announcer? Is he looking for a new job? Get your ass up and just do your fucking job. Hit people. Chase a ball around. Run muthafucka. Just play the game and get paid. You want to get technical we can talk about owners and players...draft choices, you see where I'm going? You weren't complaining about that? Put your money where your mouth is for bigger, better, deeper causes. You start change somewhere...like he was the first college educated player to note that. Really?

Lewis DoBad takes cowardly stand, others on KC Star Editorial Board join him, turn their back on respect for country and military.

Did anyone expect anything different....This editorial board has not seen a tax they don't like, a social cause they can't wait to defend and they are the first to call for someone's head when a "perceived" injustice may have been done.....to wit, Officer Wilson in Ferguson.

They screamed for his head and offered NO apology when the state and the Feds found not only had he not done anything wrong, but Michael Brown was the aggressor.

SO, no I didn't expect anything different and it's why I dropped the paper. They don't represent the community in anyway!
