U.S. Pacific Command Commander Admiral Harry Harris Jr. received a standing ovation when, while speaking at an event honoring the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, he took a moment to put disgraced, and pathetic, San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his place.
As you’re most assuredly aware, Kaepernick has refused to stand for the Nation Anthem, claiming the United States is racist and he will not show respect to a racist nation. This “racist” nation, of course, is the sole reason Kaepernick is so grossly over paid, considering his complete and total lack of ability to play the quarterback position at the NFL level.
On Wednesday, while standing near the front of the Pearl Harbor memorial in Hawaii, Harris made clear where he stands on the issue:
“You can bet that the men and women that we honor today — and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago — never took a knee and never failed to stand when they heard our national anthem being played.”
The comment caused the crowd to rise to their feet, giving the Admiral an extended standing ovation.
Harris went on to say, “That fateful Sunday morning 75 years ago, they were about to conduct morning colors when they were surprised to hear the sounds of real bombs bursting in air instead of the reassuring melody of our nation’s anthem.”
“At that dawn’s early light, they ran to battle stations and to the sound of the guns as they moved boldly to begin the defense of our country,” Harris said.
