Colin Kaepernick ruined professional sports when he kneeled for the national anthem.
Since then, sports leagues have been infused with progressive politics that are turning fans away.
And Kaepernick could get an insane honor for his anti-American protest.
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been turned into a folk hero by the left because of his disdain for America.
People who run down America always get exalted as heroes by the left because the left has captured all of the country’s cultural institutions.
Kaepernick has been graced with awards and lucrative deals with some of the largest corporations on the planet.
Now former NFL linebacker Takeo Spikes believes Kaepernick should have a statue in the Smithsonian.
Spikes said in an interview:
“I truly believe that he deserves some type of monument, a statue in the Smithsonian in D.C…The reason why I say this is because [he] put everything on the line…I applaud him simply because he decided to take a stand…He decided to draw a line in the sand and say look, ‘I can make the money, I can live a carefree life for the most part and get paid handsomely and never say a thing because I’m not affected.’”
Kaepernick has probably enriched himself far more in his post NFL-career; his football future was in jeopardy after he got benched in 2015, and led the 49ers to a 1-10 record as a starter in 2016.
Since leaving the NFL, Kaepernick has signed deals with Disney, Penguin Random House, Netflix, Nike, and EA Sports.
He’s having a movie and a docu-series made about his life.
That wouldn’t have happened had he continued as a journeyman backup quarterback.
“[H]e took time to look back and really just see the big picture, the spectrum when we talk about the inequalities. He decided to not only call it out but take a stand for it.”
Kaepernick became radicalized into radical left thinking when he took a class at Berkeley.
His views on “inequalities” are badly skewed by political propaganda, and not informed by facts.
The problem of misinformation is spreading.
According to a recent study by Skeptic Magazine, approximately 45% of liberals believe that 1,000 or more unarmed black men were killed by the police in 2019.
But statistics compiled by The Washington Post put the number at 13.
Media propaganda has fueled anti-police hysteria, which has fueled so much political division in the country.
Kaepernick might find himself in the Smithsonian because the museum went full “woke” over the summer.
Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) released an online infographic that peddled neo-Marxist nonsense about certain qualities being examples of white supremacy.
The qualities listed were “racist” traits such as punctuality, rugged individualism, Christianity, Protestant work ethic, and other characteristics that make people successful.
Far-left propaganda is ruining people’s lives, and puppets in the media are cheering it on.
