Colin Kaepernick

Post by shemp » Sun Aug 28, 2016 10:49 pm

All them what are upset about what he did can get on their knees and suck my dick! As usual, every fucking jingoistic yahoo has gone apoplectic. From their reaction, you might think he'd tried to join ISIS while raping a baby and blowing up Mount Rushmore.

Morons. Eat an elephant dick and die in a fire.

Let's see if I get it.

Some guy I never heard of, a highly paid entertainer of some kind, doesn't care for the national anthem. :cowbell:

It shows that for all the whining the right does about 'political correctness run amok', they have their own version of it. Maybe they need a safe space so they aren't triggered by the sight of a man choosing not to stand for the national anthem.

I'm not sure if anyone cares. This controversy seems incredibly forced. And you rise for the National Anthem if you want to, don't even need a reason, fuck the haters.

Well, as more than one Sports Dude had put it, people would care if he was a starting quarterback. Sure . . . for a season he was . . . then sucked. It would be as if this guy:

Image

decided to pontificate on Gamergate or something. Who cares?

Which is sad, in a way, because one's relative importance should not impact on whether or not an opinion is rational and sound. Still if St. Tom of Brady, or St. Peyton, or various other "stars" did it, it would gain a lot more attention. They are just not as stupid as Kaepernick is. I write "stupid" because he so badly rationalized his "statement." He is like the "Hands Up Don't Shoot" types who just did not know the facts. Though at least those acted out early. It has been some time. Kaepernick did not do his homework.

Which, irony of ironies, is sort of why he is a back-up now and not a starter.

Here's all the people who are most upset by this:

http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/08/28/ ... ove-384388

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/20 ... al-anthem/

Seems he also converted to Islam in the offseason and got engaged to a BLM activist.

Personally, I don't care about it. I'm not going to try and find out who his sponsors are so I can boycott them. Some of these boycott ideas are pretty comical. People talking about boycotting all NFL sponsors. Well good luck with that! If you want to show your displeasure, don't buy tickets to a 49ers game. But I agree with Nyar that this is the other kind of "political correctness". Also don't you dare say anything bad about Christians!

I don't give a shit either but doubt his foresight. He is a celebrity and as such lives and dies by the grace of his fans.
google wrote:Current Contract.
Colin Kaepernick signed a 6 year, $114,000,000 contract with the San Francisco 49ers, including a $12,328,766 signing bonus, $61,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $19,000,000.
Well, even if he doesn't play he gets 73 million (fucking) dollars. So he can afford to be idealistic.
Must purchase (after-tax dollars) a disability policy for $20 million if suffers career-ending injury paid to 49ers
I wonder if this constitutes a career-ending injury.

Because you want to know and don't have access to wikipedia
Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, a 19-year-old woman who was single and destitute at the time. His birth father, an African American, was out of the picture before he was born.[1][2][3] Russo placed her son for adoption with Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, a white couple who had two children—son Kyle and daughter Devon—and were looking for a boy after having lost two other sons to heart defects.[1][4] Kaepernick became the youngest of their three children. He lived in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, until age four, and attended grade school in Turlock, California.[5][6]
