What happens when you’re not longer good at playing quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers? You become a washed up, gibberish speaking, attention seeking, whiner, crybaby, woe-is-me, America-hating, oppressed by white people millionaire who looks like the distant great grandson of Bin Laden and his name is Colin Kaepernick.
He won’t stand for the National Anthem, even though he’s at work and expected to behave respectfully so as not to embarrass his team. His place of employment is not his personal rant machine. He should do that during his personal time.
He wears piggy cop socks at practice so he can annoy and embarrass his team.
Job well done if his goal was to look like an idiot.
CBS Sports – During an interview on Sunday, Kaepernick said that police brutality against minorities has to stop if he’s ever going to stand for the national anthem again.
“People of color have been targeted by police,” Kaepernick said. “So that’s a large part of it and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher. You have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years, but you can become a cop in six months and don’t have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist.”
Kaepernick is incorrect. The police do not target anyone based on color. Police target criminals.
When someone breaks the law, then they deal with the police, especially if someone has called it in. That’s normal. That’s not racist or targeting. That’s just police doing their job to get criminals off the streets and in the slammer.
If people stop breaking the law, then they will rarely encounter police.
When it comes to free speech, then I am OK with Colin Kaepernick not standing for the National Anthem on his own time. He can sit down for it in his house, at Applebees (he won’t be rich for long) or anywhere else. But he’s being paid millions to appear in front of the fans who used to cheer for him. He’s disrespecting the people responsible for his paycheck, his country, and his team. He will look just as bad if he does this anywhere else, but he looks extremely terrible doing this on national television.
If he wants to wear piggy cop socks when he goes out to dinner with his white oppressing parents, then that’s fine. Go ahead and look like an attention grabbing high school girl. I could care less what Colin does in his personal time. If he wants to be a loser, then let him be a loser.
Except, he can’t do it at work.
If you or I did this at work, then we’d probably be fired. The 49ers have to play it smart since there’s millions in the salary cap to deal with in regards to his contract, otherwise they would’ve shipped his sorry self to Cleveland where QBs go to retire or party.
I believe in freedom of speech and he can say whatever he wants as long as it’s on his own time and not embarrassing his entire country on national television. If he was a bus boy for a food catering business, then he would’ve been fired by now.
Also, I’m pretty sure no one drafted him in fantasy football this year. He’s probably upset about that and this is his temper tantrum…some socks and a sit down during the Anthem.
Hey Colin, go be a loser somewhere else.
