You’d think that somebody in Colin Kaepernick’s position would simply be happy to get ANY positive attention at the moment.
He’s a has-been…
A flash in the pan.
We thought his story would be over after he was benched during the 2016 season…
Especially seeing how, in true spoiled-brat star athlete fashion, Kaepernick pouted and got caught sitting on the sidelines during the National Anthem instead of taking the benching as motivation to get better.
Instead of owning up to being a spoiled brat, Kaepernick came up with a cockamamie story about protesting the killing of black men by police to cover up his grumpy grouper session.
Now, that’s not something I have any proof of…
But it’s hard not to see the correlation. He never said a word about ANY kind of activism until that day.
So, with that said…
I’m calling it a pout session – because that’s EXACTLY what it looked like.
Kaepernick – All Show And No Go
That’s what he chose to do…
He also chose to take the past few years off from playing football and then whine about not having a job instead of working to improve his skills.
It’s all ego with that guy…
And you can tell that, when he had his private workouts to try to get back into the NFL, he didn’t REALLY want to work with the NFL—he wanted to stick it to them, which is why he held his OWN workouts a few miles away.
What a jerk.
Of course, since he’s been unemployed for YEARS now, he’s had to find a way to make money…
So he REALLY pushed the whole activism thing.
He’s become so outspoken in his time away from the game that it’s hard to even look at him as a football player anymore.
He’s an activist, as far as I’m concerned..
And his actions over the past few years only strengthen that opinion.
Remember, it was just a few months ago that he made a big stink about Nike coming out with a shoe that featured the Betsy Ross flag. Using his activist platform, he said America was founded on slavery and that the old style flag represented that.
What a tool.
However, he’s ramped up his anti-American rhetoric now that Trump authorized a drone strike on a terrorist who was masquerading as an Iranian military general.
Instead of celebrating that there was one less murdering maniac in the world…
Kaepernick took the time to make the incident about race.
Kaepernick Proves His Ignorance
He tweeted, “There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.”

There is so much wrong with this statement that we’re not even going to address it…
We’re not trying to take over Iran or Iraq—or anywhere else in the Middle East, for that matter—and calling the precision killing of a KNOWN terrorist a “terrorist attack” is simply ignorant. It tells anybody who reads it that he knows NOTHING about foreign policy.
However, Kaepernick doesn’t let that fact stop him. Just a minute later he tweeted, “America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the nonwhite world.”

Did he NOT see that, over the past 8 months, Iran has shot down one of our drones, captured ally ships in the Strait of Hormuz, had one of their terrorist groups bomb an airport in Iraq which killed an American, and then attacked a US embassy? Where was Kaepernick’s activism when all of that was going on?
Trump did EVERYTHING he could to avoid military conflict, opting for using sanctions and economic pressure instead.
When that didn’t work and the White House got wind of OTHER targets of Kata ‘ib Hezbollah…
Our president acted swiftly.
This isn’t about American imperialism, Kaepernick…
It’s about stopping an evil regime in its tracks before it gains too much steam.
You’d know that if you actually paid attention.
America is multi-cultural. There is no “white conspiracy.” This is what happens when you mess with the biggest, baddest dude on the block.
To say it’s anything else is just you trying to get attention as you try to save face for sucking eggs in football once again…
You deserve your sentence in athletic limbo.
Of course, if you’re tired of the freedoms you’re afforded here as an American citizen, you could always move…
Maybe Iran would like to have you?
You never know! Although…
Your whining wouldn’t get over well over there.
But don’t take our word for it…
Try it for yourself.
