Because we do! Kaepernick deserves any and all insults that were thrown at him. Kaepernick looks at the flag and sees racism and oppression (who, by the way, has an annual salary of $19 MILLION). He refuses to see the hundreds of thousands of lives that were lost fighting to defend what that flag really stands for: freedom. We don’t feel too bad for him.
Some were angry with this statement.
Now the DoD is praising his fellow vets for not being like Kaepernick, who is trying to promote civil rights.

Cheap shot. You are comparing two unrelated things. Only authoritarians require blind obeisance to flag.

I’m not sure how you can speak for all Pearl Harbor vets. Seems presumptuous and demeaning.
