Mike Ditka again addresses players protesting national anthem: ‘If you can’t respect this country, get the hell out of it’


Back in 2016 when quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting racial inequality during the national anthem, Hall of Fame coach Mike Ditka said he should “get the hell out” of the country because he thought that it was a form of disrespect. Just a few short months ago when George Floyd and Breonna Taylor were both victims of police brutality, Ditka once again reiterated in July that athletes who are protesting the anthem should “get the hell out” of the United States. And following this week’s NFL games, for a third time Ditka spoke out on the players who knelt during the anthem.
