    San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler is not happy at the state of America and will boycott the national anthem while playing during baseball games.
    Kapler is not happy about America's issues on race, gun violence and other issues.

    "
    As details of the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, continue to unfold, San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler on Friday wrote that he is "not okay with the state of this country" and that he "felt like a coward" for not protesting "the lack of delivery on the promise of what our national anthem represents."

    Kapler told reporters before Friday's series opener at Cincinnati that, moving forward, he doesn't plan on taking the field for the national anthem "until I feel better about the direction of our country" and that he needs more time to consider specific actions he might suggest be taken to prevent more tragedies of this type, such as stronger gun control laws.

    "I don't expect it to move the needle necessarily," Kapler said of his decision to not take the field for the anthem. "It's just something that I feel strongly enough about to take that step.''

    Kapler, in a blog post published earlier Friday on his lifestyle brand website, said he was disappointed in himself for not making some sort of protest during the playing of the national anthem Wednesday.

    An 18-year-old gunman killed 19 children and two teachers Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. In Buffalo, New York, 10 people were killed May 14 when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire in a supermarket. Both gunmen were using AR-15-style assault rifles."

    I doubt he boycotts those paychecks though.

    Go ahead and kneel.

    Also how can they call themselves giants? That's offensive to people who suffer from gigantism.

    He can kneel the rest of his life then for all I care. It’s my goal in life to make sure that his and other progressives vision of their ideal Amerika are never in their or my lifetime realized. I don’t share their vision of what they would do to our precious America.

    It will last for a few months. Year at most. Then he'll be back. Don't care as he's free to not show up for the anthem. Part of that whole "promise of what our national anthem represents" that he talks about yet apparently is "lacking of delivery".

    Then why doesn't he quit his $ million job as a manager and join the local police for $50 grand a year.

    Then he can let all the criminals go and feel better about being his ******* self.
