First Amendment Is Under Attack, But Not How You May Think

The First Amendment is under attack again, but people are having trouble seeing that Colin Kaepernick isn’t the problem. It’s the rest of us for forgetting how America works.

The Kaepernick “scandal” is dominating the news cycle at the moment. If you haven’t heard, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback decided to sit down during the national anthem during the first three preseason games this month.  He says he’s doing it to highlight racial injustices across the U.S.

Of course, the expected backlash was instant, with people questioning Kaepernick’s patriotism and most suggesting he move to Canada, where his America-bashing would be more accepted.
