Mike Ditka is not a fan of Colin Kaepernick.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not been shy about voicing his opinion when it comes to perceived inequalities in America.
Kaepernick began the trend of kneeling during the National Anthem as a way to “protest” the state of affairs in the U.S.
Well, Ditka isn’t having any of it.
During a recent interview Friday on 103.5 The Fan, the former NFL coach didn’t hold back.
“I think it’s a problem…anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country they don’t like our flag…get the hell out.
“I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick – he probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is, I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.
“I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunity – now if they don’t want to look for them – then you can find problems with anything, but this is the land of opportunity because you can be anything you want to be if you work. If you don’t work…that’s a different problem.”
Kaepernick has not responded to Ditka’s comments as of yet.
