Colin Kaepernick truly hates America.
After igniting the infamous national anthem protests, he most recently pressured Nike to cancel a shoe featuring the Betsy Ross flag.
And when Mike Rowe heard about it, it only took four words for him to silence Kaepernick.
On top of being the host of Dirty Jobs, Mike Rowe is one of the most reasonable figures in Hollywood.
He speaks his mind, and isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers when necessary.
So when he was asked about Kaepernick forcing Nike to pull a shoe over America’s first flag, Rowe wasn’t afraid to make his opinion clear.
Rowe said that his argument about the Betsy Ross flag being racist is “completely void of logic.”
Kaepernick claims that because there was slavery at the time the Betsy Ross flag was originally flown, it is racist.
Rowe simply points out that if the flag is racist for being around while slavery was legal, then countless other symbols like crosses and bald eagles must also be racist.
The Daily Caller reports:
The 57-year-old former host of “Dirty Jobs” shared that Kaepernick absolutely had the right to his opinion as well as the sneaker company having the right to recall the shoes when responding to a fan on Facebook about the issue, per the Washington Times in a piece published Tuesday. But he followed that up with all the reasons the former San Francisco 49ers QB’s argument was flawed.
“In other words, we can’t deny Kaepernick’s right to speak his mind, but we shouldn’t ignore the flaws in his thinking,” Rowe explained. “He has argued that the Betsy Ross flag is ‘racist,’ because it flew at a time when slavery was legal in America.”
“By that definition, aren’t crosses are also racist,” he added. “Weren’t they on churches attended by slave-owning congregants? Why not demand their removal? What about the Bald Eagle? Wasn’t our national bird flying around when slaves were held? Why not protest it as well? ”
This is a part of a broader effort to make every historic American symbol racist.
The Left hates the values America was built on, so therefore historic figures must be put on the chopping block.
