Nobody Hated Tebow for Taking Knee
… So Why Kaep?

Rev. Jesse Jackson has a message for all the Colin Kaepernick haters — Tim Tebow took a knee too … and nobody had a problem with that!
We got Jesse leaving Reagan International Airport this week when he used the ex-Heisman Trophy winner to explain what he believes is the hypocrisy surrounding the outrage directed at Kaepernick.
“It’s interesting that when Tim Tebow took a knee, it was accepted,” Jesse tells TMZ Sports.
“Kaepernick takes a knee and he’s rejected. Both of them took a knee in protest of what they believed in. One was religion. One was for justice. OK.”
Remember … Tim used to take knees prior to every game — albeit not DURING the national anthem — and it was so widely praised, a social media meme came of it.
Clearly — Jesse thinks Kaep deserves the same treatment.
