The so-called mainstream media have attempted to turn Colin Kaepernick into a martyr.
But ever since starting the anti-American anthem protests, Kaepernick has been showered with praise and endorsement deals.
But Kaepernick had one deal fall apart for an unbelievable reason.
Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and became a folk hero on the Left.
He won awards and scored lucrative deals with the biggest companies in the world: Disney, Nike, Penguin Random House, and Netflix.
Kaepernick had another deal in the works, but it fell through because he did not want to answer any media questions.
From The Wall Street Journal:
The Change Co. seemed like the perfect company for Colin Kaepernick’s SPAC to buy. The California lender focuses on minority borrowers underserved by traditional banks, a snug fit with the former National Football League star’s social-justice activism. But a deal ran aground last week over a peculiar issue: Mr. Kaepernick’s reluctance to stump for the merger on live television, people familiar with the matter said. Mr. Kaepernick balked at requests from Change Co. executives that he sit for an appearance with George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” and declined to participate in interviews as part of the rollout, according to an internal document. The deal is now dead, these people said.
Ever since Kaepernick’s transformation into a far-left revolutionary, he has not had to answer any challenging questions.
He simply makes absurd proclamations, and does not back them up.
In Kaepernick’s horrendous Netflix series, he portrayed the NFL draft as a slave auction.
In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves.

Kaepernick has never defended that assertion or any of his other ridiculous claims.
The Journal continued:
Such an appearance would have been out of character for Mr. Kaepernick, who has never spoken about the issue in such a forum and has granted few interviews. Instead, he has cultivated his image through his social-justice initiatives and scripted appearances, most notably an advertising campaign with Nike Inc. and a six-part documentary about his childhood that ran on Netflix Inc. this fall.
That Kaepernick would let the deal fall apart because of an unwillingness to sit for an interview shows how little substance he has.
Kaepernick is role-playing a 1960s radical in everything he does, but he has nothing to say when challenged.
Meanwhile, Kaepernick is continuing with the charade that he’s eager to get back into the NFL, the same league he compares to slavery.
Anybody paying attention should not take Kaepernick seriously ever again.
