American Revolutionary War (1775-1783)

Kaepernick is no founding father

Kaepernick is no founding father

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.
