Colin Kaepernick is a Joke
So let me start by saying, I am not the most patriotic person on the planet. Not by a long shot. There are countless things in my country’s history, both current and past, that I am embarrassed by. But I still thank God I am allowed to live here. I appreciate the gift of freedom as I know it. I don’t own a flag but I don’t think it’s going to far out of my way to stand and look in the direction of one when the national anthem is being played. I just checked Colin Kaepernick’s salary breakdown. He got a 12 million dollar signing bonus and now has 61 million dollars guaranteed at a rate of 19 mil a year. And he is going to ride the damn bench, at best. So when I hear this simple fuck saying this shit, I just cringe:
“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 in an exclusive interview after the game against Green Bay. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Listen up you dope, you don’t have to “show pride” in the flag, just fucking stand there and honor it. If you want to protest bad cops that’s fine. I’d probably stand right next to you in unison. But to disrespect a country that allows you to make 19 million dollars a year to do JACK SHIT is the height of clueless hubris. Why don’t you fly your dumb ass to Syria and see if they’d be willing to pay you that kind of dough to warm a bench? I’d like to see Kaep try to make it a week in Syria just trying to stay alive.
No one is stopping him from taking some of his millions and helping people of color. Maybe he’s doing that already, I don’t know. But to happily cash those checks every week in a country that allows him to do just that and then openly disrespect the flag that protects his right to do so is just beyond me. I can’t fathom that type of stupid.
End of rant. Cut his fucking ass TODAY.
