A Fox News guest — a black man, for crying out loud — said that America is “being assaulted” by Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players protesting racial injustice before football games. He even compared it to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Because peacefully taking a knee is just like killing mass numbers of people.
BURGESS OWENS (FORMER NFL PLAYER): We now just have Nike, for instance, just joining the fray. And, as we see a little bit less, probably, of the kneeling, we’re going to still see the narrative by Nike, and that is a Marxist who’s going to be the face in commercials in NFL games from this point moving on.
We have to look at the bigger picture and understand in America that we’re under assault. It’s like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, we’re being assaulted by the left. And we need to understand who they are. They’re globalists, and they’re leftist globalists. The worst thing that can happen to our country is to let them get away with it and not understand what their long game is. It’s not American, it’s not about patriotism. It’s profit and politics for them.STUART VARNEY (HOST): What was the name of your book again?
Let me guess. The name of his book is How to Be Incredibly Stupid and Ridiculous for Fun and Profit? It should be. Jesus, how unhinged do you have to be, especially as a black man, to claim that peaceful civil rights protests are comparable to Pearl Harbor and 9/11? There simply is no limit to how utterly moronic these wingnuts can be and still get put on the air on a major television network. In a rational world, everywhere he went people would just point and laugh at this guy.
