Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick, the infamous former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, has had his dreams of reentering the NFL dashed into a million pieces once again, as the Seattle Seahawks have reportedly lost interest in signing him to the team.

Kaepernick’s claim to fame is being a raging social justice warrior who launched the whole “take a knee” movement that spread like a bad rash all over the NFL, with teams disrespecting their home country by kneeling during the National Anthem. This was said to be a form of protest against police brutality and racial equality, though that’s questionable.

The move led to a massive nationwide boycott which severely damaged not only television ratings, but game attendance too.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday night, “Colin Kaepernick and his attorneys took depositions in his collusion grievance from Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll today and from GM John Schneider on Wednesday, per source. Seahawks expressed interest in Kaepernick this off-season, but he no longer appears to be in their plans.”

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has nobody but himself to blame for being unsigned. The Seahawks were willing to give him a fair shot if agreed to stop kneeling, and he reportedly wouldn’t do it. Again, Kaepernick should look in the mirror if he’s looking for somebody to blame for not being on a team.

What Kaepernick and many others around the country fail to realize is that the NFL is a company, a business. They want to be financially successful, and despite not coming out with an official response to the man’s on field antics, it’s been clear from the get-go that what he’s doing is really bad for their bottom line.

The vast majority of people who tune in to a football game are doing so to watch the sport they enjoy, to leave behind the real world for just a few hours and be lost in the glory of competition. The last thing they want is yet more politics. Politics has already oversaturated every facet of existence, sports were the final frontier, the last safe haven as it were.

The enjoyment of professional football comes in the form of being part of a fandom with others who love the same team. This issue has caused a lot of division among football fans and has really strained fandom for many individuals.

Kaepernick didn’t win hearts and minds to his cause, he just stirred up more strive and division, while also managing to explode his career.

Now that’s he’s been rejected by the Seahawks, the chances of seeing him in the NFL are very small. Given the negative impact he’s had, it’s safe to say that’s probably for the best.

Biden Condemns Trump for Using the Word ‘Lynching,’ But Said the Same Thing In 1998

Ain’t that something?

Democrats can literally quote themselves from decades past and then argue they didn’t say what they said. Doesn’t even matter if their words are on record. If that sounds funny to you, it’s because it is. They are ridiculous. President Trump for example, if he wanted to, could pull a word-for-word sentence from Joe Biden’s past, blast Biden for using it, then Biden would claim he never said it. That’s how Democrats operate. It’s just lie after lie. On Tuesday, Trump used the word “lynching” to describe how he’s being treated by Congressional liberals. Naturally, the left blew a gasket. Biden, himself, wasn’t pleased with 45’s words. But Biden is pretty much a comedian at this point. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was quick to attack President Donald Trump on Tuesday after Trump referred to impeachment as a “lynching,” which is the same term that Biden used in 1998 to describe the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton. “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186691273870233601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F1998-remarks-from-biden-surface-after-he-attacks-trumps-lynching-remarks WATCH: While Biden has called Trump’s lynching…

Dem Lawmaker’s Bill Would Put Citizens In Jail for Six Months for Using the B-Word Out of Context

In what world??

Democrats not only want to regulate the 2nd Amendment but they figure it’s time to go after the 1st, also. Because who needs freedom of speech? After all, even Rhodes Scholar Lebron James said there are negatives that come with freedom of speech – and he’s someone to be listened to! Check out this Democrat lawmaker from the same state as Elizabeth Warren. He wants the word “bitch” to be taxed but he’s going about it in a way only a Democrat would go about it. If you use the word in a wrong way, you’d be fined $200 or sent to jail for six months. Seems just a tad bit excessive for using…a word, doesn’t it? Oh, those silly Dems. From Reason: Massachusetts is taking the fight against nasty words to the next level with a new state bill that would ban the use of the word bitch in certain contexts. State Rep. Daniel Hunt (D–Boston) has put forward H. 3719 that would prohibit the use of the big, bad b-word when deployed to “to accost, annoy, degrade or demean” another person. Anyone who did so would be considered a “disorderly person” under state law. Penalties could include fines of up to $200 or six months in jail. Hunt’s bill specifies that either the person called a bitch or a witness to the bitch-calling could report the crime to the police. Reactions: Thanks a lot Massachusetts! California, the center of the universe when it comes to stupid, stupid laws, will see this and not only copy it but one up it somehow. https://twitter.com/Arqahn/status/1186764482611236864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186764482611236864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F What will we do with all the dogs https://twitter.com/SorryNotaBot/status/1186786524991389696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186786524991389696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F “Don’t mess with my first amendment, bitch.”- Jesse Pinkman (probably) https://twitter.com/presidentshemp/status/1186776934958665733?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186776934958665733&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F Free speech unless some bitch gets feelings hurt. https://twitter.com/AnthonyBialy/status/1186766905442537474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186766905442537474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F Daniel J.
