*There’s a reason why she is called the Notorious RBG.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg did not hold back when asked to weigh in on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other athletes refusing to stand for the national anthem out of protest.

“I think it’s really dumb of them,” the left-leaning judge said in an interview with Katie Couric.

“Would I arrest them for doing it? No,” Ginsburg continued. “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”

Couric then asked, “But when it comes to these football players, you may find their actions offensive, but what you’re saying is, it’s within their rights to exercise those actions?”

“Yes,” said Ginsburg. “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”

  1. Ginsberg’s comments are dumb and disrespectful because of the office she holds. Is she moving into the senile years? Certainly, sharing such an opinion publically is very unbefitting of a supposed Supreme Court Justice. Simply Inappropriate! This is another reason why we need term limits for these judges.

  2. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME SINCE WHEN IS BEING “DISRESPECTFUL” TO PUT YOUR KNEE DOWN INSTEAD OF SINGING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM TO EXCERSIZE YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH BECOME “DISRESPECTFUL”? I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW BECAUSE I AM ANGRY AND TIRED OF HEARING OF WHAT COLIN AND OTHER SPORTS PLAYERS DID TO “DISRESPECT” THE FLAG.

  3. Well, it’s official… This Supreme Kook is certifiable… It’s time for the old girl to hang it up.

    Thanks for revealing who you really are, Ruth…

    And yeah, term limits isn’t a bad idea at all…

  4. Ruth is the one who is “dumb, and arrogant.”

    I marvel at people who are so cavalier about downplaying, or demonizing black people for peacefully saying, “ENOUGH!” These silly, immature, idiots could NEVER endure what we experience on a daily basis.

    You butt holes may be tired of hearing about black people talking about, confronting, and standing up against racism, but none of you stupid creeps are more exhausted than those of us who have to experience the BS hate from racists coast-to-coast, and world wide.

    Either school your racist friends, and relatives about the perils, and immorality of racism, or sit your dumb asses down, and STFU…
