JJ Watt? Ronan Farrow? Nope! Colin Kaepernick Named GQ Citizen of the Year

JJ Watt? Ronan Farrow? Nope! Colin Kaepernick Named GQ Citizen of the Year

Give me a break!

The magazine GQ has named former quarterback Colin Kaepernick its citizen of the year since becoming a “powerful symbol of activism and resistance” since he took a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

GQ said that this action has put Kaepernick in the same company of Jackie Robinson, the man who courageously broke the color barrier in baseball and had to endure ACTUAL racial injustice and brutality. Or Muhammad Ali, who protested the Vietnam War and refused to serve when he was drafted, which forced boxing to lock him out.

EXCUSE ME?

I’m sorry, but what Kaepernick is doing is nothing compared to Ali or Robinson. That didn’t stop the magazine from parading Kaepernick around Harlem to recreate Ali’s steps:

He [Ali] continued to train throughout that period, waiting for his chance to return to boxing. He was known for jogging in the streets, and kids would chase him—the People’s Champ, boosted in his darkest days by the joy of his truest fans. That’s why we decided to photograph Colin in public, in Harlem, among the men, women, and children he is fighting for. To connect him to a crusade that stretches back decades.

Yeah, um, Ali was protesting the government forcing him to fight in a war he was against (like a lot of Americans).

GQ also said it wanted to give Kaepernick an opportunity to reclaim his protest as it’s been lost since August 2016 when it first happened. OK, I do admit that his reason for kneeling has been lost, especially since President Donald Trump waded into the storm, which caused more NFL players to kneel basically to protest against him.

However, GQ didn’t even really interview Kaepernick because it noticed that his silence has “helped his story go around the world.” But the silence can cause “a vacuum, and that if it doesn’t get filled somehow, someone else will fill it for him.” So what did the magazine do? Gathered people close to Kaepernick to discuss his protest.

After this news broke, my friend Ed Krayewski tweeted this:

Excellent point. Why not Farrow? Here’s a second idea: JJ Watt. Actually…three. Why not be edgy and give it to the females who have outed Weinstein?

Ronan Farrow

The past month has led to a major fall in Hollywood after The New York Times published an article that had numerous high profile actresses alleged sexual harassment and assault at the hands of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

It turns out Ronan Farrow had been working for almost a year on a project to out Weinstein as the sleaze bag he is with an article in The New Yorker…only because NBC turned down his expose. His report included audio “of Weinstein admitting to groping model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.”

His next article detailed the lengths Weinstein went through to make sure that his antics stayed in the dark. This included private investigators, even ex-Mossad agents, to go after actresses and journalists.

Farrow has helped bring down one of the most powerful males in the entertainment industry.

The Females

I know GQ is a male magazine, but why not get with the times and choose a female? Or how about a pack of females? You know…those females who have spoken out about Weinstein. Rose McGowan has been one of the leading females against Weinstein, but also outed those who allegedly knew about Weinstein’s behavior and did nothing about it.

Farrow also spoke to these women and they explained to him why it took so long to speak out.

These women not only brought down a horrible man, but their courage has given others the courage to speak out. Actor Anthony Rapp told how Kevin Spacey came onto him when he was 14-years-old, which led others to speak out against the celebrated actor.

Other women came forward against Louis C.K., who admitted that he did masturbate in front of them.

Also, this attention has gone back to Corey Feldman, who has for the longest time tried to expose the pedephilia that runs rampant in Hollywood. He has not shied away from his unfortunate experiences along with the late Corey Haim. He published a memoir in 2013 that offer graphic details that both of them went through in Hollywood.

JJ Watt

How about beloved Houston Texans football player JJ Watt who brought together everyone of every skin color and faith to raise $37 MILLION for the city after Hurricane Harvey? That money came from 209,428. He placed his original goal at $200,000. From USA Today:

“What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna rebuild homes, we’re gonna restore childcare centers and after school programs, we’re gonna provide food for those who need food, and we’re gonna provide professional medial services, both physical and mental for those affected by the hurricane.”

Watt added that they’ll be partnering with SBP, Save the Children, Feeding America and Americares to get all of it done, and he of course gave a shoutout to the Astros.

Comments

They’re right to compare him to Clay Ali, another traitor who made a public display of his utter lack of patriotism and his sympathy for his country’s enemies.

Sure, he made up for it with good deeds later, and who knows, perhaps Kaepernick will do so as well, though I doubt it.

    Clay was a talented but confused young man.
    he did not have good handlers but tried to do the right thing.
    I was a draftee in that era and if you think that i and many/most other draftees went willingly to that pointless war which not fought to win but actually to not lose.
    that is why his stance allowed him to come back as a fighter.
    the confusion and mishandling of him led to adoption of the ‘religion’ that to this day still has black slavery.

    IOW bugger off!

      Even if I disagreed with Ali’s politics, I recognized him as a true athlete and top competitor, one who had amazing courage.

      Nothing at all like that pampered, overrated has been Kaepernick. Who only started this whole thing because his radical girlfriend told him to.

JJ Watt ????? really, he only ACTUALLY did something POSITIVE and showed what the BEST of us can do.

for GQ yo have honored him would never have passed the SJW smell test.

to be serious, what is a mag that has no relevancy any longer to do ?
answer – cause this type of outrage and get lots of free publicity.

In 1966 “many Americans” were not against the war. Only communist sympathizers were. Clay’s objection was not specifically to this war, nor to war in general, but to all wars of the United States of America (and of any other country that wasn’t Moslem). In other words his motive was specifically disloyalty to the USA rather than conscientious objection to all wars.

His Supreme Court acquittal on a technicality was not justice; by his own statements he did not object to all wars, and therefore was obviously not a conscientious objector, so the fact that the appeals board didn’t specify the exact grounds for its decision should not have resulted in reversal.

    “In 1966 “many Americans” were not against the war. Only communist sympathizers were.”

    You surveyed them personally? You read their minds? You write like an arrogant fool.

      Milhouse in reply to gibbie. | November 14, 2017 at 12:38 pm

      Look at who was against the war in ’66. Any non-communists there? Polls were still overwhelmingly for it. Even later, loyal Americans never opposed the war, but only the way Johnson was refusing to fight it to win. That can’t be used to justify Clay, whose opposition was to this and any war the USA fought, exactly like Kaepernick.

        Roy in Nipomo in reply to Milhouse. | November 14, 2017 at 2:15 pm

        As I remember it, most of the guys who were against the war were: 1) against themselves going in (and possibly being hurt/killed), which meant they were more realistically “anti-draft” than “anti-war”; and/or 2) joining the anti-war movement because that was where a lot of… willing… girls could be found. I suspect most of the participants in the anti-war groups were less Communist and more just “useful idiots” for the Communists.

          Just so. The claim that “many Americans” were truly against the war doesn’t hold, and can’t be used to minimize Clay’s spitting on his country, which was much worse than Kaepernick’s. Clay explicitly refused ever to go to war for the USA, not because he objected to war but because he objected to the USA. That ought to have got him a lifetime ban from all sports.

Bozo freakazoid Colin needs to unhook from that open circuit and step away from the power source.

Maybe their intention to honour CK was to do with the fact that he has single handedly brough the NFL to its knees (pardon the pun)?

Plus that baseballs issue is he is white. Imagine awards he would have got it if was a brother!

This award is a good laugh. Remember folks, it is GQ and not IQ 🙂

I never realized it was so easy to change the world. All that I need to do is raise my fist or kneel during the anthem and I will have done my part to make the world a better place. Good to know.

    Clearly thanking G-D is an NFL nono.

    the number of fans who disagree with Colon have shown it by not showing up, purchasing NFL stuff or watching on TV.

    Shows what 1 idjit can do to destroy happiness for millions.

    he needs to take time off to spend with ‘family’.

    where is there a modern Howard Cossell when you need him ?

Both GQ and Rolling Stone are joke magazines. Nobody actually reads them or takes them seriously anymore. This is just a publicity stunt to get their name back out there, the same way CK’s kneeling was a publicity stunt. But it did get all of us talking about GQ so I guess we gave them what they wanted.

GQ has been an SJW-converged institution for years. They hired Keith Olbermann, FFS. The only people surprised or shocked by this haven’t been paying attention.

    I will admit to not paying attention to GQ for years (actually, I don’t think I’ve EVER paid any attention to them). Now I’ve upgraded “inattentive” to “dismissive.”

St. Louis CK.

Too bad there us no longer an NFL team in St. Louis, otherwise the above might really be a weirdly prophetic phrase, sort of.

“is”…(stupid smartphone)

It’s difficult for me to express how much this does not matter to me. In my 71 plus years, I have no memory of of ever picking up this magazine or even knowing someone who has read this publication. That being said, in my mind, it would be hard to pick someone who is less qualified for recognition than this semi literate jock. While his actions have received wide dissemination, they are far from being positive or even accurate. His protests against alleged discrimination by Police and others are demonstrably false. The whole Black Lives Matter movement is constructed on lies. Statistics disprove the notion of Police killing blacks because of racial motives.

Faux-Shaft look and faux-Roundtree look…. this is “Blaxplotation 2017 and it is phony. SF wold have pampered him during the “protest” and making 17 mil along the way. Stupid continues on.

Lots of irony in protesting oppression and slavery by kneeling down.

“Print is dead.” – Dr. Egon Spengler

It’s GQ.

Yawn.

I don’t follow gay commie sites. Who is this guy?
