Carolina Panthers Player Celebrates Colin Kaepernick with Cleats

Colin Kaepernick

Sticking his finger in the National Football League’s eye, Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid wore cleats celebrating anti-American protest inventor Colin Kaepernick during Monday’s game against New Orleans Saints.

Reid is one of the last NFL players still protesting during the national anthem and was one of the first to take up Kaepernick’s protests back in 2016.

On Monday, Reid wore cleats celebrating Colin Kaepernick’s protests as well as his social justice programs.

Reid was taking advantage of one of the new social justice policies the NFL made with players which allows them to choose a cause for which to advocate. Reid chose to honor his former 49ers teammate, Colin Kaepernick, according to Yahoo! sports.

According to Breitbart Sports:

Reid employed the skills of activist and artist Brandon Odums to design the cleats which Reid wore on Monday. The design is meant as a “tribute to the history of protest” while also flogging Kaepernick’s “Know Your Rights Camp.”

The artwork shows protestors holding signs reading “I know my rights” and “If not us, who? If not now, when?”

It is striking that Reid chose to highlight Kaepernick, especially since the former San Francisco 49er quarterback is suing the league:

Kaepernick turned free agent at the end of the 2016 season after spending the year protesting against the country at every game but found no team interested in signing him either in 2017 or since. Consequently, he filed a “collusion” grievance against the NFL claiming that the coaches, owners, and league officials “colluded” to keep him from pursuing his NFL career.

This was definitely an example of a current player sticking his finger in the league’s eye by celebrating a player who is suing the league for mistreatment.

NO JOKE: Bernie Sanders Says He Would Let Boston Bomber Vote — From Jail (Watch)

There are no words…

Every proud American has a duty to make sure President Trump is re-elected simply so Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders never steps foot in the Oval Office. His socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen. Monday night on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison. But not just him. All prisoners. No joke. From Daily Wire: Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison. An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMyrChsBG68 Just completely crazy, right? Speaking of crazy, Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind. In 2016, she backed Donald Trump harder than anybody because he promised to take a tough stance…

EXPOSED: Ocasio-Cortez & Omar Caught Violating Rules, Experts Say They WON’T Be Punished

Because, you know – OF COURSE!

If you’re a “cool” freshman member of Congress, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ilhan Omar (MN), you can do whatever you please and get away with it. Well, that pretty much pertains to every member of Congress – but that’s beside the point. AOC and Omar may have been caught violating the rules, but they’re going to skate. Craziness. From Daily Caller: House progressives are violating congressional rules by using a dark money group to help accomplish their caucus’s legislative goals, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The leaders of the 97-member Congressional Progressive Caucus could face a formal censure or reprimand for using outside funds and services from the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC), a nonprofit group, according to the experts. House rules prohibit congressional caucuses from accepting such support from outside organizations. But although the progressive caucus’s relationship with the outside charity group “seems like a clear violation of the rule,” there likely won’t be any consequences anytime soon, Acton Institute editor Joe Carter, who has researched congressional caucuses, told TheDCNF. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone. The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing. Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020. You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing. Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.” She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQr6XtcdwE#action=share Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district. A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America. As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment,…
