A 2019 video resurfaced on Sunday showing the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum outside Fort Pierce, Fla. using a Colin Kaepernick jersey as a prop during a K-9 attack demonstration.

In one video, four attack dogs go after a man dressed in a protective suit, along with the jersey of Kaepernick, a controversial former San Francisco 49ers NFL quarterback who popularized a kneeling protest of the national anthem before NFL football games.

“Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce used ‘Colin Kaepernick stand-in’ for K-9 demonstration at fundraiser last year,” said one Twitter user who uncovered the controversial footage.

The video has garnered more than 4 million views since it was tweeted out Sunday.

“In another video, after ‘Navy SEALs and Navy SEAL dogs take down Colin Kaepernick for not standing during National Anthem,’ he moans something like, ‘Oh man, I will stand,’” a second video shows.

The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum is an independent organization, but the U.S. Navy SEAL Twitter account confirmed it was working to make certain no active-duty Navy personnel were involved in the controversial incident.

The U.S. Navy SEALs denounced the events in which they took place.

“We became aware today of a video of a Navy SEAL Museum event posted last year with a military working dog demonstration. In the demonstration, the target is wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey,” the Navy SEAL statement read. “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 organization’s event.”

Kaepernick began his kneeling during the U.S. National Anthem during the 2016 NFL season in what he described as a protest against police brutality. He has not played in an NFL game since the 2016 season and in 2017, Kaepernick left the San Francisco 49ers and became a free agent. Kaepernick has since struggled to find a spot on a new NFL team, but did become the face of Nike’s 2018 JustDoIt advertising campaign.

During comments made before the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, President Donald Trump touted the strength of the United States, backed by renewed military spending, as well as energy production and economic reform.

Trump credited U.S. success to placing its national interests before global interests.

“The future does not belong to globalists, it belongs to patriots,” Trump said.

Trump said there is a divide between countries that try to rule over others and those that simply want to rule themselves, and he encouraged nations to embrace the national focuses of their own countries.

“If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. If you want peace, love your nation,” He said.

In a 35 minutes speech, Trump addressed a series of foreign policy decisions that have become part of his administration’s focus, including renegotiating trade deals to make trade “fair and reciprocal” and to correct against nations that exploit international trade systems and behaviors.

Among those exploitative nations, Trump took aim at China for claiming to be a developing nation while enjoying the world’s second largest economy. He called on the World Trade Organization to take the appropriate steps to counteract China on a range of alleged economic abuses, such as instituting unfair market barriers, intellectual property theft and forced technology transfers.

Trump’s criticism of China then shifted to ongoing protests in Hong Kong where people have opposed a bill to allow criminal extradition back to the Chinese mainland. Trump called on Chinese President Xi Jinping to be a great leader and said the way China resolves its issue with Hong Kong will “say a great deal about its role in the world.”

Trump then shifted his focus to Iran. He said he withdrew from a nuclear agreement with Iran, because it did not provide effective limits on ballistic missile technology and overlooked nuclear sites Trump said would lead to Iran gaining nuclear weapons. He also criticized Iran for its sponsorship of terrorism and threats to other countries, such as chants of “death to America.” He also, notable blamed Iran for a recent attack on Saudi Arabia oil facilities, which Iran itself has denied.

He said Iran has significant untapped national potential that it could realize if it stopped threatening other countries and focused on internal development.

Trump shared a similar message for North Korea, suggesting North Korean leader Kim Jung Un could realize his countries potential if he agreed to denuclearize.

Trump’s comments shifted for some minutes to the U.S. border, where he said unchecked immigration threatens to remove human capital and potential from “depleted countries” and overburden those countries that receive it.

Trump also criticized “open borders” activists for empowering criminal enterprises.

He warned would be illegal immigrants not to work with cartels or pay criminal smugglers to enter the U.S., or to otherwise risk their family’s safety as they will simply be sent away.

Trump went on to urge other countries to “honor the dignity” of their citizens by decriminalizing homsexuality and recognizing the rights of women and their value to a nation’s economic potential.

Trump touched on other topics, such as abuses by the government of Venezuela and a looming concern of socialism. He also described overgrown bureaucracies as a threat the Democratic institutions of nations.

Near the end of his speech, Trump’s comments shifted to criticism of international organizations attempting to dictate laws to individual nations, including the United Nations itself. He reaffirmed the U.S. decision never to ratify the UN Arms Treaty, which he said threatens to undermine the rights of U.S. citizens to keep and bear arms. He also renounced UN sponsored measures on abortion.

Trump ended his speech, reiterating calls to the leaders of other nations to pursue development at the domestic level before pursuing international governance.

Trump said “the path to progress begins at home.”
