Colin Kaepernick refuses to go away.
The former NFL quarterback who ignited the anti-American anthem protest has been turned into a folk hero by the Left.
And Kaepernick released one video that will make you roll your eyes.
Liberals have swiftly moved to the hard Left.
Radical ideas are now being parroted by Democrat politicians and the so-called mainstream media.
And that radical shift is illustrated by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
After a promising start to his career, Kaepernick’s play fell off a cliff and he was benched.
Not long after that, he underwent a political transformation to the militant Left.
Kaepernick started the anti-American anthem protests that swept across sports leagues, and he quickly found himself out of a job due to his porous play and cantankerous attitude.
Kaepernick’s lack of an NFL job turned him into a martyr in the eyes of the Left, but that didn’t stop him from signing lucrative deals with Penguin Random House, Netflix, Disney, Nike, and EA Sports.
His children’s book will be released next spring, and Kaepernick just announced the trailer for the dramatized version of his life.

Prior to Kaepernick’s revolutionary turn, he was a proud Christian who exhibited gratitude for his adoptive family and his privilege as a millionaire athlete.
But Kaepernick has since become a cartoon character; his over-the-top militant persona is undercut by all of the big-money deals he’s signed.
“The revolution” never paid so well.
Meanwhile, Kaepernick’s extreme rhetoric contributed in part to the 2020 riots, which led to dozens of deaths and over $2 billion in property damage.
Animus toward police officers attempting to quell the chaos reached a fever pitch.
Many still contend that Kaepernick should be back in the NFL, but he’s having too much fun playing the martyr.
He would have to take a pay cut to play football again.
Former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson organized a workout for Kaepernick in front of multiple NFL teams, but Kaepernick blew off the workout and moved it to a different location.
Teams wanted to see if Kaepernick could be a team player free of distractions, and he failed that test miserably.
He will never play in the NFL again because he doesn’t really want to.
Feeding into the Left’s victimhood narrative suits him much better.
