Justice Ginsburg: National Anthem Protests ‘Dumb and Disrespectful’

In a Yahoo News interview with Katie Couric, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg weighed in on the national anthem protests that were started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, calling the protests that have since spread around the country “dumb and disrespectful.”

“I think it’s really dumb of them,” said of the protesters.

“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.”
