Colin Kaepernick made headlines again and it has nothing to do with football.
The disgraced former San Francisco 49ers still remains a cultural icon to liberals that they can’t refrain from shoving him down our throats.
And now Kaepernick and super brand Nike just revealed a new campaign that will drive you up a wall.
You might wonder how in the heck does Colin Kaepernick make headlines nowadays?
How in the heck does Colin Kaepernick make headlines?
It’s actually pretty simple. He and his camp designed it that way.
You probably wonder how he makes money given the fact that the NFL hasn’t employed him in several years.
Well, now we know.
Nike contracted Kaepernick back in 2011 and absurdly kept him on the payroll even though he’s technically no longer an athlete.
Now we’ve found out why. Nike kept him contracted to be the face of their 30th-anniversary campaign of the “Just Do It” slogan.
It’s a black and white picture of the unemployed athlete that says, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

That’s a political statement that made your eyes pop. https://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/featured/colin-kaepernicks-latest-stunt-will-ruin-the-nfl/
It’s simply amazing how incredibly ironic that statement is.
You could also apply that ridiculous statement to the countless veterans who did the exact same thing in Afghanistan, Iraq, Korea, France and Germany. That list goes on and on.
Yet, he’s the one who ruined his career by disrespecting them.
Here’s another way to poke holes in this. Those who boycott the NFL and the message of these anti-American players who kneel also “believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing…” something they love.
You know, the way Kaepernick loved football. Apparently, football is “everything” to Kaepernick.
With all of that said too, another reason why this is absurd is that Nike suddenly cares about human rights?
Nike suddenly cares about human rights?
Have we missed something here?
This is the same clothing corporation that employs sweatshops in Asia to produce low cost apparel so they can maximize their profits, right?
But, yeah, they really care about Kaepernick’s message. Sure.
Why didn’t they make JJ Watt the face of the company?
Watt raised a total of $41 million for Houston after hurricane Harvey devastated the city.
To be fair, Kaepernick has donated money to charity as well, which includes bottles of water to Flint Michigan.
This difference, however, is that Watt never made it his career goal to divide people in this country. He wasn’t a “martyr” as members of the media have referred to Kaepernick.
They’re hypocrites. For the last several years, Kaepernick received fat checks from Nike for doing absolutely nothing.
This was their end game obviously.
Isn’t it clear this is all about money?
Does Kaepernick actually believe in the “social injustice” cause that he kneeled for in the first place?
John Elway admitted a month ago that Kaepernick had his opportunity to play in the NFL again and passed it up. https://offthewire.com/this-nfl-team-offered-colin-kaepernick-a-contract/

Even if it was for a backup quarterback role, he could climb into starter status immediately, right? If he’s that good of a quarterback and is only prevented from being staffed on a roster because of this “collusion” then why wouldn’t he want to prove himself?
This is all nonsense. It’s fake “social justice” that would probably embarrass some of the pioneers who paved the way for him.
