Colin Kaepernick caused a rift in the country with his anti-American anthem protest.
Democrats and the so-called mainstream media have only made the divide worse.
Now Kaepernick is getting paid for one ridiculous book project.
The Left likes to portray former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a martyr.
But Kaepernick has proven that he’s not starting material, and too much of a headache to be a backup.
Kaepernick sealed his fate in the league when he blew off a private workout set up by former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson, changed the venue, wore a “Kunta Kinte” shirt, and called his own press conference.
The workout was a test to see if Kaepernick could be a backup without serving as a distraction, and he failed miserably.
Kaepernick likely does not want back in the NFL because he’s making too much money away from the game.
He’s signed lucrative deals with Nike, Netflix, Disney, Penguin Random House, and EA Sports.
Now Kaepernick has a children’s book coming out with Scholastic.
A press release for the book states:
“During a kindergarten exercise on drawing families, Kaepernick remembers putting down the yellow crayon he had been using to draw his family and picking up the brown crayon for himself…This moment crystallized for him the differences marked by his adoption, and how acknowledging those distinctions could encourage us all to be more accepting of ourselves and each other.”
The premise of the book is harmless, but Kaepernick has chosen a far-left, radical, divisive path.
Kaepernick’s book will likely further the revolutionary message he’s been propagating for the last five years.
For example, Kaepernick promoted the work of avowed communist Angela Davis, and advocated for the release of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Debra Dorfman, a VP at Scholastic, said of Kaepernick:
“Colin’s reputation as a thought leader precedes him, but it was also clear when we met that his mission and purpose were very much aligned with Scholastic’s.”
Kaepernick the “thought leader” has openly praised violent communists while calling for the destruction of the American system.
Radical leftists have dangerously moved into mainstream positions within the Democrat Party, and they’re attempting to drag the entire nation to the fringes.
Kaepernick’s message is far different from his early days in the NFL.
Kaepernick used to talk about his Christian faith, which he no longer does.
Some speculated that he converted to Islam because he routinely promotes Muslim holidays on social media, but says he has not.
Kaepernick also used to talk about his adoptive family—who is white—which doesn’t jibe with his sudden racial grievance narrative.
During a postgame interview after his political conversion, Kaepernick said he felt he had been oppressed in his life.
That does not comport at all with the facts of his life, i.e. growing up in an upper middle class Northern California suburb.
The reinvention of Kaepernick continues, and his past is now being retconned to fit his social justice warrior narrative.
