The U.S. Navy SEALs are investigating after video surfaced from a fundraiser last year in Florida that showed a K-9 demonstration using a Colin Kaepernick stand-in.
The video which was posted last January, but went viral this weekend shows what appear to be Navy SEAL dogs attacking a man wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey during a demonstration.
A second video shows the dogs taking the man in the Kaepernick jersey down. Finally, after the dogs are pulled off, the man in the jerseys said, Oh man, I will stand.
Laughter ensued from the crowd, clearly taking his statement as a joke regarding Kaepernicks protests during the national anthem.
The Navy SEALs announced on Sunday that they have launched a full investigation into the incident, which took place at the national Navy SEAL Museum near Fort Pierce, Florida.
After condemning the incident, the organization said it believes that none of the people participating were active duty Navy personnel.
We became aware today of a video of a Navy SEAL Museum event posted last year with a military working dog demonstration, the SEALs said in a statement. In the demonstration, the target is wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey. The inherent message of this video is completely inconsistent with the values and ethos of Naval Special Warfare and the U.S. Navy.
We are investigating the matter fully, and initial indications are that there were no active duty Navy personnel or equipment involved with this independent organizations event.

I’m trying to understand what the problem is.
Isn’t he an enemy of America?
We are investigating the matter fully...”
...why? Did Colins little pee pee get chewed off? In Mexico they depict real people all the time with Pinatas. Snowflakes
If we lose the SEALs to this “social justice” nonsense.....
Sounds funnier than anything on the last 20 years of SNL.
What next from the hyper-sensitive ‘command’ weenies? Mandatory bias training and blm patches?
Aw, c’mon-—can’t a SEAL have a little fun? After all, this ungrateful degenerate has spent years taking potshots at America, the country to which the SEALS swore allegiance. For my money, they could go one better and sic the dog on Crappernick IN the jersey.
Whoever complained should be deployed to west africa to chase bandits for a while. They clearly need a reality check.
They're saying it like it was a bad thing.
Im trying to understand what the problem is.
Me too, then I remembered Kaepernick is black and cant be made fun of in todays cancel culture. The incident will undoubtedly be considered racist, in spite of Kaepernicks actions being abhorrent to a SEAL or any actual American regardless of his color. It is ridiculous to think that an investigation was even considered.
Hopefully, allegedly GOP Congressionals will support me on this.
Kaepernick should be happy that they purchased an official NFL Kaepernick jersey.
The dog and whoever had the idea should get medals.
If anyone loses their SEAL career over the BS, President Trump needs to straighten out the chain of command.
Just call it a “glitch” - it seems to work for everybody else....
I think it was funny.
Let them have their fun. No harm.
Just say it was a protest.
That it wasn’t really Colon Krapernick.
