*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.”
