Team USA Hockey Coach Delivers Stern Warning to Any Player Who Copies Colin Kaepernick

While America-hating benchwarming 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues his Marxist political stunt of disrespecting the American flag and all that it stands for, other copycat communists — very few — have mimicked Kaepernick by refusing to stand during America’s National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. The Team USA hockey coach, however, is not about to allow such actions by the players he coaches.

Team USA hockey coach John Tortorella told ESPN’s Linda Cohn that “if any of my players sit on the bench for the National Anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game.” 


Marxist Obama showed his willful ignorance and/or bastardization of the U.S. Constitution on Monday, saying that Kaepernick had a First Amendment right to disrespect the flag, however, the First Amendment applies to the government limiting free speech, not private entities like the San Francisco 49ers or the National Football League (NFL), who fine players often for the things they say or do.

The 49ers or the NFL could easily stop Kaepernick’s disrespectful acts if they wanted to, but considering San Franciso is full of America hating leftists and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is a progressive leftist socialist, the odds are slim.

Moreover, the NFL recently ruled that the Dallas Cowboys were not allowed to wear an emblem on players’ uniforms honoring the Dallas police officers brutally murdered by a Black Lives Matter terrorist. Therefore, the “free speech” mantra of Kaepernick and his ilk only works one way in the NFL, which is becoming more and more poisoned by cultural Marxism.
