The NFL continues to be beset by the anti-American anthem protests.
With the 2018 pre-season underway, several players have already carried on with the protests that began in 2016.
Now the player that started the unpatriotic displays could be positioning himself for a major attack on Donald Trump.
Birth of a Radical
Colin Kaepernick has been a thorn in the NFL’s side since he chose to sit for the national anthem two years ago during a pre-season game.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback had always been considered somewhat immature because of his curt interview style, thin-skinned retweets of random critics on Twitter, and his ill-advised joke about a Hurricane that had just devastated Houston.
But Kaepernick took a summer class at Berkeley and fell deep down the rabbit hole of militant leftism.
Kaepernick then began kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner for the rest of the 2016 season, which inspired other players to follow his lead.
Kaepernick said he was protesting police violence against people of color, sparked primarily by the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri.
However, the Department of Justice under Eric Holder was already investigating the matter of police brutality when Kaepernick began his protest, rending his anti-American gesture moot.
Kaepernick Sues the NFL
Despite the mainstream media and other leftists praising Kaepernick and showering him with awards, the NFL was far less enthusiastic about him.
Kaepernick’s career got off to a promising start, but he gradually regressed to the point of being benched for journeyman quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
Kaepernick started 19 games during his last two seasons, and he went an abysmal 3-16. His drop-off in performance coupled with his newfound status as a divisive figure and instinct distraction made him scorched earth for all franchises.
A few times kicked the tires on Kaepernick, but he showed an attitude and sense of entitlement that ended his chances of getting picked up.
Kaepernick did not get signed during the 2017 season, and he’s currently without team. A large reason for that is because Kaepernick is suing the NFL for colluding against him, a preposterous claim that will very likely be defeated if the case even makes it to trial.
Kaepernick’s Big Agenda
The NFL filed a motion for summary judgment, meaning the judge could throw out his case before trial on the grounds he doesn’t have enough compelling evidence to move forward.
If the case goes to trial, Kaepernick will get an opportunity to take shots at the league in open court.
However, if the judge dismisses his case, Kaepernick might push to sue Donald Trump in federal court.
The crazy idea is that Trump colluded with the NFL to keep Kaepernick out of the league.
The idea is preposterous because several NFL owners are no fans of Trump, and have openly stated they support their players’ choice to protest.
Since there is a handful of anti-Trump owners who welcome their players disrespecting the American flag, Kaepernick’s claim that there’s a widespread conspiracy to keep him out of the league is beyond far-fetched.
The simple answer is that Kaepernick is nowhere close to being worth the trouble. Unfortunately, he’s become too conceited to come to that realization.
