Mike Ditka Tells Colin Kaepernick 'To Get The Hell Out' Of The Country

Hall of Fame NFL player and coach Mike Ditka had some very harsh and jingoistic words for Colin Kaepernick because he believes he's disrespected America.

The anti-Constitution and jingoist right wing zealots are coming out of the woodwork since African American protests began because of police officers shooting unarmed black men.

And when quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a stand, NFL blowhards, TV pundits and politicians sounded off.

Hall of Fame player, coach and broadcaster Mike Ditka, is the latest sports persona to not understand why America is such a great country.

TMZ reports:

Ditka appeared on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas Friday morning when he was asked about Kaep's protest ... and he didn't hold back ... at all.

“Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag,” Ditka says, “If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the hell out."

Not only does Ditka have no respect for the way Kaepernick is protesting ... he doesn't believe there's a reason to protest at all."I don't see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on."

Our forefathers built into the Constitution a right to speak out freely, without recriminations, but that doesn't ever seem to apply to conservatives.
