Bill O’Reilly Wants Colin Kaepernick to Read His New Book to Understand What Patriotism Is

billBill O’Reilly is so outraged about Colin Kaepernick‘s national anthem protest, he is sending him a copy of his new book Killing the Rising Sun.

On The Today Show this morning, O’Reilly said he wants Kaepernick to read it to truly understand the sacrifice that was made decades ago and what real patriotism is.

He played the clip on his show tonight and said he’s not hopeful he can convince Kaepernick that America is a “noble nation.”

“No nation is perfect, but American police officers very rarely shoot civilians,” O’Reilly said. “While there is social injustice and blacks have suffered in this country, most Americans deplore bias and we have seen tremendous improvements in that area.”

He said again he’ll send Kaepenick a copy of his book, adding, “I am not confident he will read it, but if he does, he might understand that millions of Americans have given their lives for the cause of freedom.”
