The San Diego Chargers Send BOLD Message to Kaepernick After He Disrespected National Anthem

HAH! It’s Kaepernick’s first time back on the field since pulling off the idiot stunt he did during the national anthem at his last game.

…Karma was also in attendance.

The game took place in the NFL’s #1 military town and it was on a night dubbed “Salute to the Military.”

Via Breitbart:

The optics promise a startling contrast if nothing else. As one African American in red, white, and gold sits during the song another, Petty Officer 1st Class Steven Powell, in dress whites sings it. A color guard representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines and 240 soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines holding a massive “super flag” on the field aid the visual aspect of the performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Quaalcom Stadium in San Diego.

So-called super flags generally take up the entirety of a football field. Their 300-feet-by-150-feet dimensions almost perfectly correspond to the size and shape of the gridiron. They weigh more than a half ton and cost north of $50,000.

The San Diego Chargers and San Francisco 49ers kick off at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Kaepernick, who finds himself behind Blaine Gabbert on the depth chart, likely plays in the game as teams generally rest starters in the final preseason exhibitions. The timing of the event suggests that although God may possess a sense of humor here the Chargers merely stumble into a strange coincidence. The Chargers hosted the 27th annual “Salute to the Military” at this same time last year.

“At halftime the Chargers will recognize six Vietnam War veterans as a remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the war,” the team announced. “The Chargers will also have wounded warriors as special guests and a patriotic fireworks show to wrap up half-time.”

The 28th annual “Salute to the Military” also features Powell returning to sing “God Bless America” during the game. Before the game, a group of Navy Seals plans to parachute down upon Quaalcom Stadium and a Marine Corps Band provides entertainment.

Kaepernick says he respects the military, but that the country isn’t holding their end of the bargain up and providing freedom, justice and liberty for everyone.

How does that work Colin?
