Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Kaepernick protests: ‘I think it’s dumb and disrespectful’
I’m a little surprised at this one. 1 that she woke up long enough to say anything and 2 because it’s against this now-mainstream liberal narrative.
But she said it folks… Ruth Bader Ginsburg does not support the #TakeAKnee movement, it seems or at least not Kaepernick.
According to CNN (can you believe it?! Lol)
In the interview, Ginsburg steers clear from criticizing presidential candidate Donald Trump but calls the rhetoric from the election cycle “distressing.” She updates her health status, her thoughts on Hillary Clinton and Merrick Garland’s nomination and admits, to an amazed Couric, that she’s never even seen the famous parody of her on “Saturday Night Live.”
“I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”
Kaepernick commented on this saying it was “disappointing to hear a Supreme Court justice call a protest against injustices and oppression ‘stupid, dumb.’ ”
“I was reading an article and it refers to white critique of black protests and how they try to de-legitimize it by calling it ‘idiotic, dumb, stupid,’ things of that nature, so they can sidestep the real issue,” he told reporters Tuesday, according to the Mercury News. “As I was reading that I saw more and more truth how this has been approached by people in power and white people in power in particular.”
You can’t make this stuff up. I’m rather surprised here and I guess we can get behind her on this one. It is dumb and it is disrespectful.
What do you think of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s words here? Do you support what she has to say and do you hope SOMEONE on the left will listen?
SHARE if you think Kaepernick is being disrespectful.
