Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Weighs in on Kaepernick's Anthem Protests

Check this out, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice, United State Supreme Court, checked in with her opinion of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and him not standing for the National Anthem. Justice Ginsburg thinks it's dumb. In case you didn't know, Justice Ginsburg is one of the most liberal members of the Supreme Court, so I found her response surprising.

"I think it's really dumb of them," Justice Ginsburg said. "Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it's dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it's a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn't lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.... If they want to be stupid, there's no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there's no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that."
