Colin Kaepernick Hates America
Well, okay then, you multimillionaire ingrate. For all its faults, this country has made you richer and freer than anywhere else on earth.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is encouraging a team to sign free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“If he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it’s gonna take a team to make that decision,” Goodell told ESPN’s Mike Greenberg on a special edition of “SportsCenter” on Monday. “But I welcome that, support a club making that decision and encourage them to do that.”
Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl XLVII, hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season when he peacefully protested social injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.
Goodell also expressed his desire for Kaepernick’s participation in the NFL off the field, welcoming his voice on the social issues that plague the country today.
“If his efforts are not on the field but continuing to work in this space, we welcome him to that table and to help us, guide us, help us make better decisions about the kinds of things that need to be done in the communities,” Goodell said. “We have invited him in before, and we want to make sure that everybody’s welcome at that table and trying to help us deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time.
“But I hope we’re at a point now where everybody’s committed to making long-term, sustainable change.”
Go ahead, NFL, embrace this America-hater. I can’t wait to see how that’s going to work out for you.
Remember that to the American media, when Trump defends America, it’s race-baiting demagoguery. When Colin Kaepernick denounces America, it’s veritably from the mouth of God.
UPDATE: Kap’s friends. I firmly believe in their right to do this. I believe just as firmly that they are rotten people. I may be wrong about this, but I suspect that they represent a majority of those who run America’s newsrooms and institutions.
