Kaepernick on Fourth of July: ‘we reject your celebration of white supremacy’

Avatar

Three weeks after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell publicly pleaded with teams to give quarterback Colin Kaepernick a chance to play again, Kaepernick made it more difficult— again—by tweeting that the Fourth of July holiday is a celebration of “white supremacy.”

Tweeted Kaepernick on the Fourth of July: “Black ppl [sic] have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”

The sentiment will likely make it impossible for any team to sign Kaepernick at a time when sympathy for Black players is at an all-time high. While the NFL has been virtue signaling their support for Black Lives Matter, the bottom-line in the NFL is money.

And so it seems for Kaepernick, too.

Twitter users were eager to point out that in the early days of Kaepernick’s career, he was a normal football player/patriot.

“Happy 4th of july [sic] everyone I hope everyone has a blessed day,” Kaepernick tweeted on July 4, 2011.

Kaepernick signed a four-year, $5 million deal in 2011. In 2014, it was replaced with a 6-year, $126 million deal that eventually helped pay out $43,349,296 over a five-year career. He also settled a collusion lawsuit with the NFL for less than $10 million after no teams signed him when he opted out of his contract with 49ers. Nike signed a contract with Kaepernick in 2018 estimated in the “millions per year” category of a top-line NFL player.

Not bad money for a guy who wears Marxist Fidel Castro on his sleeve.

Several teams are rumored to be interested in Kaepernick, including the Baltimore Ravens, the Seattle Seahawks, Las Vegas Raiders, the Miami Dolphins and the Los Angeles Chargers.

John Elway, general manager for the Denver Broncos, said previously that Denver offered Kaepernick a contract that was rejected by the former 49er.

Even President Trump, a vocal critic of Kaepernick’s politics, seemed to be rooting for the unemployed quarterback to find a job in the NFL.

“If he deserves it, he should [play]” said Trump last month. “If he has the playing ability. His playing wasn’t up to snuff … I would love to see him get another shot but obviously he has to be able to play well.”

That was before the latest Fourth of July tweet from a radicalized Kaepernick.

The reaction from the Twitter to Kaepernick’s latest anti-American sentiments makes it unlikely that any team could welcome him without fan protests about Kaepernick’s rhetoric.

David Krae tweeted: “Followed @Kaepernick7 and defended his taking a knee in protest against anti-black racism and police brutality, but this latest sentiment is no longer a sane, rational or worthy of respect. The American project is not one of white supremacy, but of expanding liberation for all.”

    What about his white parents. 3 of the 4 parents (biological 1 black, 1 white; and 2 adoptive white) are white. Why does he hate white so much?

    I wonder if his strategy is NOT to be picked up by a team. If no one takes him he can continue playing the victim and continuing the statements that almost insures he will not be picked up. Hard to play the victim card when you’re a multi millionaire so by not being picked up he maintains his victim credentials.

    My 8 year old is much more intelligent than this idiot. Shut up and get a job you commie prick! No one cares about what you think. You have been given so much by this country but you are too stupid to see that. Go somewhere else. This country will never be fit for you. You are not a slave. You have never met a slave. Yet you cry like you are in chains now. Where else can an ugly, ignorant, mediocre athlete make it a far as you did? I have no patience for you or what you have to say. So, shut up and get a job. Or, better yet, get on a plane and don’t come back.

    Yes, the new country allowed slavery, which was practiced everywhere at the time. We were the fourth country to abolish slavery. We have elected a black president. Most of our big cities have black mayors, and majority black police departments. We have affirmative action and equal opportunity laws. You have way more money and fame than almost all the white people. From what , exactly, do you expect white people to liberate you?

    You earned a LOT more than I have earned in my whole life. I am an Hispanic physician whose Dad and I were called “Spic,” “wetback” and “greaser” by rednecks in far West Texas. You complain about people who suffered 100 years before you were born!!! Get your head out of your rectum so that you may smell what you’re spreading around! I grew a spine and I became a physician because of THIS GREAT COUNTRY’S OPPORTUNITIES!!! You sniveling coward, if you don’t LOVE this country, go to live in any African country you would like to; and, if you’ve spent all your millions on your selfish self, I’ll buy you a one way ticket!!!

    Where do these people get their education? Is apparent that this dufus knows nothing about our founding fathers, what the country has gone through in the last two centuries to become a better nation and he himself is a product of that opportunity. To openly slander the country that has done so much for the black people is truly detestable. Brainwashed by corrupt media and political and his greed and need for notoriety.

    Crappernick, who was raised and cared for by a white family and has contributed absolutely nothing to the good of the Republic is a whining social justice warrior who doesn’t amount to a pimple on the posterior of progress. Frankly, I don’t give two shakes of a rat’s rectum what he thinks and I invite him to leave the country and settle on the communist utopia of choice. This maggot lives in the best country on the planet, bar none, and he hates it. Do us all a favor, pack your bags and get the hell out.
