The Left Finds Another Moonbat Athlete to Lionize

San Francisco Quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem and has justified it stating that he — like the Hijab-Wearing Olympic Islamist — thinks America is a racist country unworthy of his respect. 

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media

Says the guy with the nine-figure contract sitting on a bench surrounded by millionaire black athletes.

Judging from the comments (not so much at the link, but at this site and other outlets covering the story), his supporters are defending him because his actions are ‘Free Speech.” The NFL is defending him on the same basis: “ In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

And, of course, what he did is free speech. But do you think he would be receiving the support of the NFL and leftists generally if he had said “Marriage is only between a man and woman,” or “If people are in this country illegally, they should be deported?”

  3. Or if he had said, “I am a Christian and not afraid to say so.” But nobody would ever say that, or be shunned for it. *cough*Tim Tebow*cough*

  4. Just wait until white people see no need to give their allegiance to the (((kakistocracy))) of single moms and welfare dependents.

    Especially now that leftists are saying “You must go to war with Russia because they are getting rid of their 5th columns, & want to survive without (((our))) influence. ”

    The worst things Russia is doing other than dealing with the kebab
    1. Its life expectancy has risen from 64 to 70 in 21 years.
    2. Its birth rate has risen 36 percent in the last 17 years.
    3. Its leader doesn’t hate it, but is dedicated to its national interests.
    4. Its military completely outperformed the US military in Syria this spring and summer.
    5. Its public debt is 14 percent of GDP, US public debt is 108 percent of GDP.

  5. Yet he stays in this racist hellhole of a country. Odd, that.

    Like so many, he exercises his right to free speech but does exercise his freedom of movement (out).

  6. It takes a special kind of hate to be so condescending, mind-numbingly stupid, and so righteously smug all at the same time.

    Maybe a concussion will knock some sense into him.

  7. “And, of course, what he did is free speech.”

    Actually, no. The first amendment prohibits government interference in speech. Any employer is legally permitted to establish its own workplace rules, e.g., a dress code, as long as they do not violate any standing laws or statutes (e.g., racial discrimination). The NFL could easily require its players to stand and honor the national anthem as workplace behavior. What does this say about the NFL?

  8. Almost everything I know about football I learned from my lesbian friends. They also taught me that there’s usually a story behind the story, particularly when it comes to professional sports. Such is true in this instance.

    So it’s easy to give bona fides to Mr Kaepernick, being biracial and a confirmed Christian (complete with a torso full of “Jesus tats”), but the whole stunt could merely be a ploy to provide some job security inoculation down the line. His recent NFL performance in the past couple of years has been sub-par at best and he was benched due to injury most of the last season. He’s yet another in a long list of NFL players who had a stellar career in high school and college but who can’t seem to successfully extrapolate that to the big time, where one is often merely a star amongst stars, instead of the star.

    So when the guillotine of roster cuts is put in place during the regular season (depending on overall team performance), should he find himself in the rightful place as being team dead wood, he can stand up where he found it difficult previously and proclaim that he’s being singled out for his beliefs and his current applauding admirers will again seal-clap and shout “Shame!” at the 49ers and urge the NFL to “do the right thing”. This probably won’t work, but team management isn’t stupid and, being able to see the writing on the wall, may just do him a favor and buy him a little more time on the payroll than would normally occur. Reportedly he could then also do the Tebow thing and try his hand at baseball. Unless and until that pans out, let’s hope he’s taken very good care of his guaranteed $13 million from the 49ers.

    To those who are wondering why the NFL tolerates this behavior and doesn’t enforce participation in opening rituals, the simple answer is that they’re not stupid either. They realize they have more prima donnas in the rosters than most Broadway shows and television casts. If you tolerate a little bad behavior and give the actors enough rope to hang themselves, eventually they will do just that. The league will survive and the bad actors will be relegated to obscurity, if not infamy. To that end, they are just like any other large employer out there in the hostile workplace.

  11. he said he saw the bodies lying in the streets, would that be the thousands of white victims of the epidemic level of black on white crime over the last seven years that the complex hides. would they be the thousands of bodies of black victims of black criminals in democrat controlled cities across the country that people like him have no concern for. I guess not that wouldn’t support the political agenda. he said he got informed before he decided to take this action. who informed him, wolf blitzer?

  12. I wonder if they can still dump him after signing him to this stunning contract. Not bad for a bench sitter. Denver got lucky by not signing him.

  13. It’s San Francisco, so NOTHING will happen.
    And he knew this when he took such a brave stand….err, sit. [/sarcasm]

    That aside, under the notorious NFL Players Agreement they probably can’t officially-punish him anyway without very expensive consequences to management. But do they have to play him on a regular basis?, I doubt it. They should have him practice, travel with the team, and suit-up; but conveniently “forget” to give him any playing-time during any crucial games.

    One man’s “retaliation” is another’s “we’ve lost confidence in your leadership abilities” within the strictures of the Players Agreement.

  14. The point here is that his disrespecting US National Anthem is a hollow gesture. It would be more appropriate if he protested the States and City that do little or nothing to rectify the plight of citizen Blacks in their neighborhoods.

  15. The thing that kills me about these celebrities who take “daring stands” and make “bold statements” are doing no such thing. They are merely parroting the views that the country’s chief media producers have propagated and declared “edgy” so that they can get a pat on the head from said media producers.

  16. I come to tolerate Kaepernick, not to praise him. The diversity that men do lives after their moment of fame. The good is oft impossible to detect. So let it be with Kaepernick. The NFL hath told you Kaepernick was talented at quarterbacking. If this were true, we would have noticed it. And grievously hath Kaepernick had to face his mediocrity. I come to speak for Kaepernick’s diversity. Did his utterances against the flag not seem diverse? O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason. Yea, beg a hair of him for memory. Alas, poor Kaepernick was diverse, did not his action seem diverse?

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps this petty, but diverse Kaepernick from day to day, to the last stupid syllable of his recorded diversity. Kaepernick’s but a walking shadow, a poor player, who struts and frets his hours upon the bench, and then is seen no more. It is a tale of diversity uttered by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Out, out, brief candle of diversity fame; Fair is foul and foul is fair as you hover through fog and filthy air. Come what may, time and the hour run through the roughest diversity meme. Confusion now hath made his masterpiece and its name in Kaepernick.

  17. Apparently, he’s engaged to a BLM leader, AND he converted to Islam, so there’s that. That being said, he’s got some talent, but he has ALWAYS been a head case who chokes in big game situations.

  18. Agree with #7 and #8. The Bill of Rights is a set of restrictions on government. You can’t be criminally prosecuted for expressing a dissenting or unpopular opinion. But a private employer can enforce its own rules, and can regulate workplace behavior. So the NFL could require players to stand for the national anthem, and could then fire those who refused. The First Amendment is not a relevant issue in this case, although PCNN and MSDNC may try to claim that it is.

    And Kaepernick is likely using this as a smokescreen. Maybe he realized that they were getting tired of paying him eight figures to sit on the bench. Now, if he gets sacked, he can claim that it was because of his “activism.”

    And those “bodies lying in the street” do not include innocent people (of any race) murdered by muggers or carjackers. The bit about “paid leave” makes it clear that he is alluding to police-involved shootings. Cases of vicious thugs justifiably shot in self-defense by their intended victims.

    As always, “Black Lives Matter” really means “Thug Lives Matter.” And even then, only when they can be exploited to further the agenda. Colin would not have bothered to spit on Sylville Smith, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, or Philando Castile if they had been on fire.

    You are saying a concussion might help him out. But that is provided there is a brain inside his head.

  21. I’m so tired hearing about this half-witted hack. He’s nobody and if he had any chance of a long career as a QB we would not be talking about this.
