SEAN HANNITY (HOST): By the way, what's your take on Kaepernick? I mean, I guess he can insult America, and we're free to insult him.

[...]

HANNITY: You know what this guy is? He's a spoiled brat, out of touch, super rich athlete. He, in his own life, has suffered no oppression, he's free to share all the money he wants, he lives in the greatest nation on earth. You know -- this is a nation that has overcome slavery, overcome evil and injustice, righted wrongs, you know, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, all these people that marched with Martin Luther King Jr., and made this country a better place.

This country fought a civil war, in part over slavery, you know -- so, this is a country that beat back fascism, Nazism, imperial Japan, and communism, but he sees no good in it.

[...]

HANNITY: He lives in a place that should be praised for overcoming its wrongs and injustices, and having the freedom for its people to rise up for the better and change the country, because of a system put in place by our framers and our founders.

But that doesn't fit his little -- you know, socially fashionable, and relevant and melodramatic pretense that he has out there. You know, his version, I guess, of the March on Selma. $128 million march on Selma.

[...]

HANNITY: There was one -- I don't know, I've never been able to confirm this, I looked earlier today, that he might have converted to Islam in the off-season.

[...]

HANNITY: I don't even know what this is, Sundance? Who's -- who gave me this article today? I don't even know where I got it. Anyway, it said during the off-season he may have converted to Islam, and he's also engaged with Black Lives Matter, and I guess hip hop radio personality DJ Nessa Diab? Who's that? I've never heard of these people.
