Ditka has had enough of NFL dissents. He didn’t keep anything down.Ditka shared his emotions about NFL players disregarding our banner.
“I do not 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 do not think it’s the stage for the protests, I’m sorry,” he said
“Yes, I do not care who you are, how much money you make, If you do not respect our country, then you should not 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 would not have a job. … If you do not respect this flag and this country, then you do not 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 do not know what social injustices [there] were. Muhammad Ali rose to the top. Jesse Owens is one of the classiest individuals that ever lived. Is everything based on color? I do not see it that way. You must 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 into, you can accomplish anything. And we’ve 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 choose the person you want to be in office. And if you do not get that person in the office, I think you respect the other one. Period. “
Do you agree with everything that Ditka said?
