Kaepernick Scorched After Describing Fourth of July as a ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’

Kaepernick Scorched After Describing Fourth of July as a ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’

Kaepernick didn’t mind Independence Day before 2016!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVRPhUnw_uc

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick confirmed him kneeling during the national anthem is hatred for this country that gave him an opportunity to become a star and millionaire.

Kaepernick bashed Independence Day, calling it a “celebration of white supremacy.”

What changed? He sent out happy messages on Independence Day when President Barack Obama was in office.

Back in 2016, when Obama was still president, Kaepernick started a storm when he kneeled for the national anthem during the NFL preseason.

Kaepernick claimed he did it to protest police brutality against blacks, not out of disrespect for the military.

It sort of caught on, but then Kaepernick claimed the NFL blacklisted him since he hasn’t played since then.

However, Kaepernick’s name has come back into the news due to the protests and riots across the nation after the death of George Floyd.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell apologized a few weeks ago “for not listening to them earlier and encouraged them to protest peacefully.”

Kaepernick is worth millions. He has a huge contract with Nike.

But don’t forget this is the man who wore a Che t-shirt. You know, the guy who murdered blacks, gays, and anyone who opposed him. He also praised Fidel Castro.

That’s when people realized during Obama’s administration Kaepernick had a different view of Independence Day.

Weird.

Nike must be very proud of their endorser.

    Edit, “their very racist endorser”

      I knew what I meant to say. Thank you anyway.

      I don’t watch NFL or buy Nike, both of which are dumb shits. I took my grandson to buy shoes, he is very hard on shoes. He picked up a Nike, and I explained to that they were inferior garbage, just like KaeperCrap.

Colin who?

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | July 6, 2020 at 1:13 pm

Henpecked Colin……

What the media fails to report, He opted out of an existing contract that was set to pay him $14-15 million in 2017. He quit on the team before the team could have released him. His on field performance, while putting up decent numbers was not leading the team to wins, a 1-10 record in his last season.

    healthguyfsu in reply to buck61. | July 6, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    He was near the bottom of the QB barrel for 2nd string. If you are a 2nd stringer, don’t come with baggage or you are now 3rd string or out.

    He’s deliberately not taking any offers now because of his lawsuit.

    Zumkopf in reply to buck61. | July 6, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    Citing that W-L record is a little unfair to Colin. If he had had a truly championship team behind him, one with the best in the game at each position, Colin’s mediocrity wouldn’t have been nearly so damaging.

      buck61 in reply to Zumkopf. | July 6, 2020 at 3:13 pm

      When you make yourself the face of the franchise and is many respects the league, your record does matter. When the going got tough he walked away from the team. They keep score for a reason. He did have a bad team around him and the coaching situation was not great. His ego got too big and that same ego has kept him out of the league this entire time.

Who knows what he actually thinks. His whole act has clearly been about self promotion. He started it when his career a a player was ending and it worked. I almost respect Nike even while I despise them. They are all about making a statement. It was a gutsy move that got them a lot of attention and, unfortunately, often any press is good if what you want is brand recognition/awareness.

    But it has deep sixxed Nike financially……

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital. | July 6, 2020 at 2:19 pm

      Has he really? (I’m being serious here…) Couldn’t happen to a better company if so.

        I wouldn’t say they’re deep-sixed, but they did lose $790 million in the last quarter. However, that was mostly due to all of their mall stores being shut down due to covid – not a lot shoe sales recently.

          legacyrepublican in reply to Tom Servo. | July 6, 2020 at 2:55 pm

          No, really?! That is hard to believe. I saw a video of lot’s of boxes of Nike shoes running out the door in the arms of so many giddy customers just the other day.

          Although, I didn’t seem them stop to pay for them. They just raced in, grabbed the boxes, and then raced out. And there were sirens going off and smoke too. One guy even stopped to spray paint his initials on the wall — BLM.

          Nike Reports Profit Loss of $790 Million in Q4 and a Year-Over-Year Sales Decline of 38% (46% in U.S.)…

          “….what Nike was doing in much of last year was hiding and deferring income losses due to sales declines.

          They did this because the larger goal was to hide the impact of their branding shift.

          Nike didn’t want people to know how much backlash they faced, so they used every mechanism possible including inventory manipulation to avoid showing losses.

          However, as with all revenue and profit hiding schemes inside large corporations (and there are many that can be used) eventually you run out of ways to hide profit losses as a result of top-line collapses.

          Eventually inventories are trued up; eventually supplies need to be replenished; eventually extended -and or renegotiated- vendor payments need to be made; eventually it’s going to catch up to you. In my opinion, this is what’s happened.

          Total revenue was down 38% to $6.31 billion from $10.18 billion a year ago. Sales in North America were down 46% (link)

          Nike saw the COVID-19 economic contraction as a way to hide a top-line and bottom-line collapse that has very little to do with the coronavirus.

          COVID-19 is their cover, not the principal cause.

          https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/06/26/nike-reports-profit-loss-of-790-million-in-q4-and-a-year-over-year-sales-decline-of-38-46-in-u-s/

        Not as far as I know. Most people either don’t know or don’t care. They like the product, they buy it. They could have some serial killer endorse them and people would still buy their stuff. About the only endorser that might harm their brand would be Derek Chauvin, and I’m not even sure that would do it.

          I can’t really disagree with you too much. Adolph Hitler liked Alsacian Shepherds, but despite that, I would have at least two.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Giuseppe. | July 7, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Does he really think?

To paraphrase Andrew Cuomo, “Colin never was that great.”

Having white parents really screwed him up. Damn that white privilege.

Talcum X rides again

Richard Sherman broke Kaepernick.

Useful, however. That’s why we call them useful idiots.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick confirmed him kneeling during the national anthem is hatred for this country

No confirmation was needed. He said so explicitly at the time. What else could the anthem have with police brutality (supposing there were any)? Why kneel during the anthem rather than at some random time during the game? Maybe at half time? Why kneel at all? The meaning was obvious — that this is an evil country because the police who represent it are murdering black people, so it is not appropriate to stand and show it respect. What clearer statement could be asked for? But combine that with the praise for the USA’s enemies and it was even starker.

What changed since 2011? Presumably he “woke up”. His “consciousness was raised”. The veil was lifted from his eyes. I understand a girlfriend was responsible for this revelation. She must have given him Zinn to read, or something similar, full of lies about the USA. And that’s all the explanation necessary.

Not many political scientist can throw a football either.

Imagine that. Just when everyone (excluding us) thought his rhetoric was far back enough that an NFL team might actually think of hiring him and then he says something like this… I seem to think he enjoys being an agitator, he gets more attention than being a marginal quarterback.

I love people like Kaepernick. He is not Black. He is mixed race, having a White mother and Black Father. Even worse, he was adopted and raised by an affluent white couple. He might choose to identify as Black, but in the words of one of the Justice Brothers, Al Sharpton, “Is he Black enough?” [asked about Barack Obama].

    murkyv in reply to Mac45. | July 6, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Like Obama, why should we ever listen to (and especially “elect”) a person who was rejected by BOTH parents

    Waaaay to much baggage and mental issues

Take away the fro, give him a gold chain and a wife-beater t-shirt, and he’s an Italian. He’s as white as I am.

“Quarterback Colin Kaepernick…”
Now there’s an oxymoron for ya!

in the presence and under the steady eye of the honored and trusted President of the United States, with the members of his wise and patriotic Cabinet, we, the colored people, newly emancipated and rejoicing in our blood-bought freedom, near the close of the first century in the life of this Republic, have now and here unveiled, set apart, and dedicated a monument of enduring granite and bronze, in every line, feature, and figure of which the men of this generation may read, and those of aftercoming generations may read, something of the exalted character and great works of Abraham Lincoln, the first martyr President of the United States.
– ORATION IN MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, delivered at the unveiling of the Freedmen’s Monument in Memory of Abraham Lincoln, in Lincoln Park, Washington, D.C.

Some, many people stand, when they could easily kneel.

    GatorGuy in reply to n.n. | July 7, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Not that we might expect any warm and enthusiastic endorsement from, say, a Reverend Jessie Jackson or a Reverend Al Sharpton (nor would we want, nor need it), but American Emancipation Studies would be a helluva history field to survey and explore.

    Imagine the positives and affirmatives such a legal starting point might engender, such a contribution to America’s amazing story — a fulfilment of the Reverend MLK Jr’s appropriate reminder to, at long last, redeem the nation’s promissory note.

    Let’s begin such a study, then, with a fair, factual, and proper examination of the Democrat Party’s installment of legal fixtures during Reconstruction and beyond to bring about and long ensure the Jim Crow South, in all its ugly betrayal of the 1776 Declaration’s, of author Jefferson’s beliefs and intentions, of America’s promise of opportunity-equality.

    That terrible, infamous era found itself a long, intentional delay of all the Republican achievements made during the War and for decades after that should never be swept under the revisionist carpet — being rewoven and laid today by treacherous, lying, deceptive politicians and affiliated organizations led by Democrats.

    Expose the lies. Report the truth. Tell the real story of America. It might be a fresh and rewarding start to a new awakening, a new, richer, broader consciousness that is authentically American.

      GatorGuy in reply to GatorGuy. | July 7, 2020 at 9:32 pm

      Slight correction, please, for better readability and understanding:

      That terrible, infamous era — which found itself a long, intentional delay of all the desired results related to Republican achievements made during the War, soon after, and for decades after that — should never be swept under the revisionist carpet, being rewoven and re-laid especially today by treacherous, lying, deceptive politicians and affiliated organizations led by Democrats.

    I won’t live to see it, but, things like this will be what drives Disney into the ground.

Aren’t his adoptive parents white?

Why are we giving this clown the attention he craves? I think LI should have ignored him completely. Take down this article and never mention him again, unless/until he does something deserving of our attention.

    drednicolson in reply to Geologist. | July 6, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Ignore a snake and sooner or later you’re bitten.

    Saying something shouldn’t be discussed because the object of discussion doesn’t deserve the attention is an underhanded attempt to push others to self-censor. AKA a relevance troll.

Well, to be fair, he has been producing exploitive melodrama for a while, so the Disney gig isn’t too surprising.

Can anyone tell me why I should care about Kaepernick other than his hair looks like a black version of dandelion puffs. He’s not the only malcontent that is a multi-millionaire.

F U NFL. Cancel your season and nobody will give a crap. Thank Colin for that and yeah the games are boring and quite possibly scripted and fixed. Like ballet.

Whatever we may think about his politics, he must be the single most accomplished grifting conman in history.

He sends out a tweet and the NFL jumps to his tune. He has a huge endorsement deal with Nike and now has signed with Disney for a multimillion dollar deal.

He has somehow monetized ‘white guilt’ to his personal financial benefit to an unprecedented degree. He may be a mediocre to marginal NFL QB, but his ability to see the field in order to capture the moment, rebrand himself and take advantage of the situation is remarkable.

I know none of us can help the way we look.
Having said that, he is one ugly dude.

I think Kaepernick and those who agree with him would feel better living in Cuba, China or Venezuela. I wouldn’t miss them. Bye!

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Photoman42. | July 7, 2020 at 10:56 am

    He and many other grofters should be deported to Liberia. America bought Liberia for former slaves. He will need company, Crump, Jackson, Sharpton, Thugvon’s crappy parents, Michael Brown’s crappy parents, all members of the Black Liars Movement & all Antifa members, so that they can be a minority in Liberia 🙂

Another dim witted loudmouth a-hole, with a face for radio. A poster boy for why I do not follow pro-sports.
