O.J. Simpson: That Colin Kaepernick Guy Really Messed Up by Not Respecting Our Flag

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 1:00 pm

Look, I get that O.J. butchered two people and everything (at least according to the Fake News Media), but while I don’t like O.J., you have to admit one thing: O.J. Simpson fights for the culture war issues other people are too scared to fight for:

O.J. Simpson says he agrees with Donald Trump — Colin Kaepernick “made a mistake” taking a knee during the national anthem … and completely disrespected the American flag.

“I think Colin made a mistake,” Simpson told The Buffalo News … “I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag.”

“I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK. I don’t disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn’t be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be.”

“When he did it the first time I thought, ‘Well, you took a gamble, and I give you credit.’ But it was him continuing to do it where he made the biggest mistake.”

“I’m a firm believer of doing what you think is right, but I would always stand for the flag.”

We need more firm believers of doing what they think is right in politics. I’m going to say something that may be a little controversial: has this guy ever thought about running for office? I’m not saying O.J. Simpson should be our next President, mind you. But if he ran . . . hey, he’d be better than Hillary, amirite?

And if he did actually kill Nicole and Ron, well, that just shows that he knows how to engage in a street fight. And politics is kinda like a street fight.

Of course it would be wrong to have a murderer in the White House. But Obama droned U.S. citizens without a trial, didn’t he? How is that any different? There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent?

Again: I’m not suggesting that I would vote for O.J. Simpson to be our next President of the United States. But come on.

You have to like a guy who tells it like it is.

Whoa, wait. I just got through reading to the end of the article:

But Simpson says he doesn’t see eye-to-eye with Trump when it comes to politics.

“Somebody asked me if I’d have voted for him … Probably not, but I only know two of my friends I’d vote to be president. Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president. That has no bearing on it, you know?”

Doesn’t support Trump? To hell with him. Forget I ever said a good word about him.

  1. I picked a good day to stop reading comments on the main website. I can just imagine the angst and hypocrisy this classic post spawned.
