Colin Kaepernick Stands & Applauds For Military Personnel
Unfortunately, this won’t get much play as it doesn’t fit the narrative of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick hating his own country.
Kaepernick has stated many times that he respects military personnel and everybody who fights for the country, but the masses won’t accept it. During the Chargers-49ers game on Thursday, Kaepernick went down on one knee while the Anthem was playing, but stood and applauded for military personnel during a break in the game.
