Fox Sports analyst Jay Glazer indicated that the San Francisco 49ers are likley to cut Colin Kaepernick from the team due to his antics concerning the national anthem. On Momday at Fox Sports Glazer said,
“Regardless of politics or not, he has a very, very big uphill battle to make this team. I’d be shocked if he’s on the 49ers by the time this season ends. It has nothing to do with political views whatsoever. I’d be shocked if he’s on this roster by the end of this year. He may not be on it in the next two weeks.”
Kaepernick doesmr have enough standing and leverage or even power to be considered worthwhile to keep after this PR nightmare. It would also be highly unlikely another team would bring on that PR risk in the future. Meaning his NFL future is likley down the tubes.
Now reports indicate that Colin Kaepernick’s actions and unamerican behavior were most likely influenced by his recent affinity to Islam. Kaepernick’s statements were as follows,
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. 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.”
His social media accounts showed him posting a celebratory Eid Mubarak post. He also noted he knows a lot of people fasting which means he knows many Muslims. It wouldn’t be far fetched to think that birds of a feather flock together and he himself could have converted too.
Despite his protestations over social justice he has donated zilch to the Black Lives Matter movement or any other organization of the sort. His net worth is estimated to be in the millions too. So there is no financial or monetary excuse.
Martin Walsh of the Daily Post wrote,
“In July 2016, Kaepernick converted to Islam during the offseason AND he is engaged to Nessa Diab, a Black Lives Matter activist who promotes what she calls “authentic Islam.” The Kaepernick’s will also have a traditional Muslim wedding. It will be enlightening to see what Ms. Diab does when Colin starts to treat her as a third class citizen because Islam encourages and demands men treat their women that way.”
