Kaeper­nick is no great pa­triot

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - R. E. Heid, Bal­ti­more

E.R. Shipp’s commentary (“Mr. Kaeper­nick is the ul­ti­mate pa­triot,” Sept. 6) was a dis­grace. She must have been kid­ding. I couldn’t care less whether this over­paid sports fig­ure sits dur­ing the na­tional an­them. That’s his right. But to equate this guy with our found­ing fathers and the Amer­i­can Revo­lu­tion was, please par­don the pun, re­volt­ing.

We may be a “very flawed nation,” and, hope­fully, Colin Kaeper­nick will find an­other coun­try more suited to his de­sires and then move there. How­ever, this is my coun­try, and I have no in­ten­tion of sham­ing it.
