The horrendous events that played out for all to see in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend shocked the nation. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, everyone watched in horror as a man let hate consume his heart while he ran down people with his car, killing one and injuring several others.
Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh had seen enough, so he took to Twitter to blast the people who decided to violently protest the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
He referred to them as “embarrassments to our country,” calling them the real people who are truly disrespectful to the American flag.
Anyone who demonstrates through violence, terror or intimidation are embarrassments to our country & are truly disrespectful to our flag.
