OH MY! Mike Ditka Had Enough of NFL Protests And Reveals the TRUTH That Everybody is Afraid To Say

By

Ditka has had enough of NFL protests. He didn’t hold anything back.

Ditka shared his feelings about NFL players disrespecting our flag.

“I don’t see all the social injustice that some of these people see,” Ditka said.

“There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people.”

“I don’t think it’s the stage for protests, I’m sorry,” he said

Dikta continued:

“Yes, I don’t care who you are, how much money you make,” Ditka said. “If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you had to go somewhere else and try to play the sport, you wouldn’t have a job. … If you don’t respect this flag and this country, then you don’t know what this is all about. I would say, adios.”

Asked about Muhammad Ali and Jesse Owens — and others — taking a stand for social justice, Ditka said:

“I don’t know what social injustices [there] have been. Muhammad Ali rose to the top. Jesse Owens is one of the classiest individuals that ever lived. Is everything based on color? I don’t see it that way. You have to be color blind in this country. You have to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for and how he produces — not by the color of his skin. That has never had anything to do with anything.” 

“If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort in, you can accomplish anything. And we have watched that throughout our history of our country.”

Dikta ended his interview with a suggestion where to make a difference:

“You have a ballot box, you have an election. That’s where you protest. You elect the person you want to be in office. And if you don’t get that person in office, I think you respect the other one. Period.”

What do you think about Ditka’s words?
