The NFL is still being tarnished by radical activists.
Politics have seeped into professional sports, and the NFL has been deeply damaged.
Now an anthem protester said something about the NFL that will make your blood run cold.
Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has become a full-blown revolutionary leftist.
Ever since inciting the anti-American national anthem protests, he has been catapulted to stardom by the corporate press.
He has signed lucrative endorsement deals with the biggest brands in publishing with Penguin Random House, entertainment with Disney, streaming content with Netflix, apparel with Nike, and sports video games with EA Sports Madden.
In Kaepernick’s Netflix series that chronicles his life as a teenager, Kaepernick outrageously compares the NFL’s pre-draft combine—where coaches and scouts evaluate potential draftees—to slave auctions.
In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves.

The comparison is disgusting and ridiculous.
Slaves weren’t paid millions of dollars and turned into celebrities.
Ironically, the production had to cast roles for the show, and the casting process could easily be compared to a slave auction if the absurd analogy were carried out to its extreme.
Series creator Ava DuVernay appeared on CBS Mornings to discuss the show and co-host Nate Burleson, a former NFL wide receiver, said to her:
“And you draw these parallels between the professional scouting process and slavery. And as a guy who played in the NFL, I remember going to pro days and the combine, sitting there with my shirt off, in shorts, and them, you know, seeing how big my hands were and how heavy I was once I got on the scale. And all of these guys with pen and paper on their pads trying to figure out if they were going to draft me or not.”
Burleson played 11 years in the NFL and made millions of dollars, so he should know better than to endorse such lunacy.
“The piece that you’re talking about, which is a comparison of the combine, that process with them measuring the black body and kind a slave auction is not about economics in the way that we put it there. It’s about social control of a black body. It’s about saying I will measure your value based on your muscles, how fast you run. So that’s the point that that’s trying to make.”
This is madness.
First of all, there are players of other races at the combine, too.
It’s an audition for one of the most sought-after jobs in the country.
Ironically, Kaepernick has said nothing about labor camps in China because Nike is intertwined financially with the country.

The American people are being forced to accept utter nonsense.
There’s no boundary that’s too far for the Left.
