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.

Trump to ‘Lightweight’ Reporter: ‘Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way!’ — VIDEO

Tell ’em, Donald!

Donald Trump made all the moves necessary in his first term to earn another four years in the White House. Before the pandemic, the economy was soaring, unemployment hit record lows, and peace deals were made all over the globe. But the mainstream media didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them that he accomplished more in four years than most presidents could’ve dreamed in two terms. They are as disrespectful as they are ruthless. On Thanksgiving Day, POTUS had to tell off one of the far-left hacks. He said, “The whole election was a fraud. They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama inplaces that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way, you’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=I34X2PQKAA8&feature=emb_title Under Biden, America would never come first.

Multiple NFL Players Take A Knee for the National Anthem On Thanksgiving Day

Enough is enough!

The fact that sports commissioners are allowing players to turn games into messages for social justice shows exactly who is in charge – and it’s not the adults. Taking a knee during the national anthem should never be allowed, nor respected. From New York Post: “No thanks!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Trump fired off the two-word response after Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took a knee before the teams’ annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1332055759551680523 Even though these NBA players stood for a moment of silence to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, they still knelt once the Star Spangled Banner began playing. Pathetic. Enough is enough!
