“Adios” Mike Ditka Triggers Liberals After Going Off on Anthem Protesters: ‘Play in Another Country’
Former NFL player and Bears coach Mike Ditka said during the Monday Night Football pregame show that he just doesn’t get all the social injustice the players are protesting, further arguing that everybody in America has opportunity regardless of race or religion.
Via Fox News:
“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,” Ditka said.
“I don’t care who you are or how much money you make. 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 to somewhere else and try to play this sport, you wouldn’t have a job,” he said.
“If you can’t respect the flag and this country, then you don’t respect what this is all about. So I would say: Adios.”

This isn’t the first time Mike Ditka has denounced the NFL player anthem protests.
As previously reported, three-time Super Bowl Champion coach Mike Ditka shared his thoughts on the current NFL anthem protests and former quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Ditka went on with Dallas’ 105.3 The Fan radio program this week.
He had this today about Kaepernick:
“I think it’s a problem when anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the Hell out! That’s what I think.”
Of course the liberals came unhinged.
Mike Ditka spent a lot of his life around Black men.
He’s proof you can be around Black people & still not know much about Them.

“Mike Ditka” is a fossil best left in the stone age he came from. If he can’t see oppression could it be he doesn’t know what it means?
