Jason Whitlock: “[laughing] That's the standard, again, Colin Kaepernick another celebrated victim over social media. This is all brand building, and hats off to Gabe Kapler because he's going to build a brand, and he's now very heroic and taking this strong stance against America. I would love to have a conversation with Kapler about the history of America, the founding principles, the Second Amendment, why they put that in there, why it’s necessary... he doesn’t know any of that. What he does know is that being against the Second Amendment right now is very popular on social media, and in the circles that have corporate power, and so he's fallen in line. It’s stupid. People don’t appreciate the freedom they have in this country, they don't appreciate the standard of living we have in this country, they don't appreciate the freedom, and they don't know what guarantees it, and it's the Second Amendment. I want to be a little be gracious here and say I used to be anti-Second Amendment. I used to be 'this thing has outlived its usefulness', and then I started doing research and started understanding on a deeper level why we have to tolerate the menace of guns, and what freedoms they guarantee, and I had to pivot and change because I got a deeper understanding. I used to be as silly as Gabe Kapler. I don't think I would be protesting the National Anthem over it but I used to think the same thing." (Full Segment Above)

Listen to Jason Whitlock join The Doug Gottlieb Show to discuss San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler’s recent admission that he will now protest the National Anthem in the wake of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas last week, as Whitlock calls out Kapler’s empty statement as simply ‘brand building.’

Kapler said that he will not appear on the field during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner before the game “going forward” because he is “not okay with the state of this country.”

Check out the segment above as Whitlock mocks the Giants manager for trying to look cool on social media and win brownie points with the 'woke' community.
