[Conservative radio host Ben] Ferguson went on cable network CNN and faced off against anchor Christi Paul … as well as Rashad Robinson, executive director of the civil rights organization Color of Change [to discuss Nike’s Kaepernick campaign].
“This protest is not about the flag. Why is it that people cannot seem to separate the focus of this protest — about police brutality and African-Americans and how they are treated — with patriotism?” said host Paul.
Ferguson argued that Kaepernick’s protest “morphed” when he wore anti-police socks.
“Remember, Colin Kaepernick is a guy that wore socks depicting all cops as pigs,” Ferguson noted.
“He has worn shirts supporting Fidel Castro, a dictator and tyrant who oppresses people all the time, as someone he, I guess, admires … and the biggest day of [NFL] protests was in fact protesting Donald Trump’s comments about NFL players. This has morphed into something different than it was, in theory, what it was originally about.”
