BLAM! Colin Kaepernick Slammed by…Ruth Bader Ginsburg? WTH?

0

WOW! I bet you didn’t expect to hear THAT did you? I don’t think ANYONE expected us to hear that – especially coming from a Supreme Court Justice! I don’t think it’s too cool for Supreme Court justices to chime in on anything political, especially because THIS could all end up in a court of law…and then what? We will all know Justice Ginsburg will be labeled “bias”.

I agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but I just don’t think ANY Supreme Court justice should be chiming in on such a political topic as the 1st Amendment. Believe me when I say, I think, just like Justice Ginsburg when she says – it’s TOTALLY disrespectful – especially of those who have served our country and given us the freedom in the first place.

H/T American Journal Review:

This is one of those rare times I agree with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. When Katie Couric quizzed her on the whole Colin Kaepernick mess, she was blunt.

 She thinks it’s dumb and disrespectful. But it isn’t illegal. The only thing that would legally stop him for taking a knee during the National Anthem is if the NFL made a rule prohibiting it. Since the teams are private entities, they are free to make such rules and to cut loose anyone who does not abide by them. Yes, Colin has a right to protest… but his employers also have a right to not stand for it. He should be protesting in the unemployment line.

Ginsburg is also offended by flag burning, but once again it is not illegal. Ginsburg is a Progressive icon on the left. This is a blatant break with other leftists who have come out in strong support of Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter. Respect.

Here’s Justice Ginsburg’s reply when asked by Katie Couric in a Yahoo interview about the NFL protests:

“If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive,” Ginsburg said. “If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”

It’s nice to see, even someone on the left agrees with conservatives and those who fight to defend our constitution and country. However, it was Bill Clinton who nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court back in 1993.

Because of the recent death of Justice Antonin Scalia a vacancy has been left on the Supreme Court. We all know America is just one justice away from the shifting of major issues on the highest court in the land. It’s one reason why we must make sure Hillary Clinton does NOT get elected as our next president.

You would think the vacancy of a Supreme Court Justice would be a PRIORITY when electing the next president, yet we have not heard one question on the topic at any of the presidential debates.

If Hillary Clinton gets elected we all know you can kiss our religious freedom good-bye along with freedom of speech and our 2nd Amendment rights.

Americans may not like the choices we have between Trump and Clinton as president, but one thing’s for sure – Trump will support our Constitution and elect a conservative to the Supreme Court. I hope when Americans vote, they AT LEAST consider the vacancy on the Supreme Court. That’s a lifetime position that will affect all of us, including our kids and grandkids!
