Anti-American quarterback Colin Kaepernick gets surprising support from US veterans

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick got some backing from an unlikely source – military veterans.

Since he decided to sit during the national anthem, to protest the “oppression” of black people, Kaepernick has received overwhelming backlash from people like Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, former Superbowl champion Burgess Owens, actor James Woods, a gold star mother who was deeply offended, fans who burned his jersey and even his own mother.

He has also gotten love from Black lives Matter supporters, singer Beyonce’s mother and the usual leftists.

But the most surprising support he has gotten has to be Tuesday’s top trending social media campaign #VeteransForKaepernick.

There were others who used the hashtag to express their disdain for the $119 million “oppressed” player.
