NFL star Colin Kaepernick‘s recent decision to protest racism by sitting out the National Anthem continues to bring out the best in everyone, including former Alaska Governor and losing Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who called Kaepernick an “ungrateful punk” and suggested that everyone in the United States gang-tackle the 49ers quarterback:
America – let’s sack this ungrateful punk.
Kaepernick – yeah, you’re really “down with the oppressed” in this nation. Enjoying your $114 million contract, your previous adoring fans, sucking up a life of luxury… GOD AND COUNTRY GAVE YOU THIS OPPORTUNITY. You can’t acknowledge that? Then on behalf of every Vet I’m privileged to know: GET THE HELL OUT.
– Sarah Palin
Palin followed up that post with another consisting of commentary criticizing Kaepernick over his protest.
