KEMP RESPONDS TO BOARD OF REGENTS' LEGAL OPINION ON NATIONAL ANTHEM KNEELING

News

In response to the Board of Regents' legal opinion on kneeling during the National Anthem, conservative businessman and Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued the following statement:

"Just because you have the right to protest, doesn't make it right," said Kemp. "I support the First Amendment Rights of all Georgians but wholeheartedly believe that kneeling during the singing of our National Anthem is insulting to the men and women who have fought and died to protect our freedom and way of life.

"As Georgia's next governor, I will always stand to express my gratitude to our active duty military, veterans, wounded warriors, and fallen heroes. I urge the Board of Regents, student athletes, and all hardworking Georgians to stand with me this weekend in honor of Veterans Day. It's simply the right thing to do."
