Colin Kaepernick was the pioneer of the disgusting anti-American anthem protests in the NFL.
Kaepernick used to make frivolous posts on social media, then became radicalized and started spouting off far-left dogma.
Kaepernick has called for the American system to be “dismantled,” and further proved that’s the true goal of his actions.
Kaepernick pledged $1 million donations to various social justice activist groups, including one named after a violent cop killer who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
Colin Kaepernick has announced a donation of $20,000 to a charity that celebrates convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, as part of his pledge to donate one million dollars for social justice causes.
Kaepernick said he raised the $20K by soliciting donations from two celebrities, Fox News reported.
According to the former San Francisco 49er second-string quarterback, comedian Hannibal Buress, and actress Yara Shahidi have each pledged $10,000 to be paid out to the charity called Assata’s Daughters. On its website, the organization claims its goal is to carry on with “the tradition of radical liberatory activism encompassed by Assata Shakur.”
Yara Shahidi, an actress from TV’s sitcom series “Black-ish,” praised the organization and thanked Kaepernick for soliciting the donation.
“I decided to donate to Assata’s Daughters, which is an amazing organization based out of Chicago,” Shahidi said in a video on Kaepernick’s website. “And I just have to say thank you to Colin for such an amazing idea, but also in engaging all of us and helping to contribute to our world.”
The donations are part of the $1 million pledge Kaepernick issued in September of 2016 and featured as his final installment in his charitable spending on social justice issues.
Leftists champion Assata Shakur as some type of freedom fighter, but she was merely a violent, nihilistic radical.
From National Review:
Forty years ago…a New Jersey jury convicted Joanne D. Chesimard – a.k.a. Assata Shakur — on first-degree murder, assault, and other charges in the 1973 traffic-stop execution of state trooper Werner Foerster and wounding of trooper James Harper. She received a life (plus 30 years) sentence. But instead of serving behind bars, Shakur has led the pampered life of a “political fugitive” in socialist Cuba after her radical Black Liberation Army buddies busted her out of prison.
The late Fidel Castro’s regime provided the fugitive murderer and social-justice vigilante an apartment, stipends, books, and funding for graduate school. As she ages in comfort, the BLA’s self-styled mother hen is now a campus icon among the Black Lives Matter generation. She’s a T-shirt, a poster, an Internet meme. Just last week at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, minority students convened an “Assata Shakur Reading Group” — which the school newspaper described as a “biweekly book club for people of color that focuses on radical, black activism.”
Activism? Try blood-stained domestic terrorism. At the time of Foerster’s murder, the BLA had been tied to the murders of more than 10 police officers across the country. Before the turnpike shootout, the BLA had ambushed two pairs of NYPD officers in a 48-hour spree, killing two of them; murdered another cop in Atlanta; and executed another pair of NYPD officers in 1972. Chesimard, her brother-in-law Zayd Shakur (who died in the gunfight with Foerster and Harper), and another BLA member were wanted for questioning in the murder of two of those cops when they were stopped.
As she ages in comfort, the BLA’s self-styled mother hen is now a campus icon among the Black Lives Matter generation. BLA’s “sole goal,” domestic-terrorism expert and author Bryan Burrough noted in an interview for my new CRTV.com investigative program on Shakur, “was assassinating policemen.”
When BLA thugs ambushed rookie NYPD officers Rocco Laurie (who was white) and Greg Foster (who was black) while they walked the beat in the East Village in 1972, they didn’t just shoot them. They stood “over them and just continue(d) to shoot into their bodies, into their heads” after they lay dead in the snow, Burrough recounted.
Retired FBI agent and Morris County, N.J., sheriff James Gannon further schooled the ignorant: “This is not a soccer mom, this is a woman who was involved in very high-end, very violent crimes.” Joseph Connor, whose father, Frank, was murdered by the BLA-aligned Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN in 1975, added that these violent left-wing extremists were far from freedom-loving peaceful protesters: “They were looking to subjugate people beneath them. They weren’t looking to free people, they were looking to murder people, they were looking to cause mayhem.”
These are the types of people the left celebrates: cop killers and fugitives. These are the people the left showers with praise, lionizes in art, and awards with plush college professorships.
The left will always embrace anyone with a militant anti-American agenda.
