Anti-American protester Colin Kaepernick is still out of a job.
As the ring leader of the divisive, unpatriotic protests, Kaepernick is being looked upon as a revolutionary.
Aging rapper Eminem praised Colin Kaepernick’s protest while ripping Donald Trump during a distasteful rap “diss” track on the President.
Kaepernick responded to the shout-out from Eminem with this tweet.
I appreciate you @Eminem ✊🏾 https://t.co/nwavBwsOkQ
Shockingly, Eminem never released a similar attack on Barack Obama. That might lead one to assume Eminem took no issue with the “Fast And Furious” debacle, the Benghazi scandal, or Eric Holder’s justice department that cleared officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.
Fulminating against Obama probably isn’t a good business strategy for the white rapper, but Donald Trump is a soft target. The left lives to attack Trump incessantly, and the mainstream media shields his attackers with plaudits of “bravery.”
It also doesn’t hurt that Eminem has a new album to promote.
As for Kaepernick, his legend grows. A former player even compared him to Martin Luther King.
Former NFL long snapper and U.S. Army Green Beret Nate Boyer thinks free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be the next Martin Luther King Jr. if he can embrace his opposers and listen to them.
When Kaepernick sat for the national anthem in 2016, Boyer met with the then-San Francisco 49er and convinced him to kneel instead of sitting.
“[Kaepernick] could be the face of something,” Boyer told BBC. “He could be an activist and really move this conversation forward if he’s willing to continue to listen and be open-minded and embrace police officers and embrace those that disagree with him and love them — much like Martin Luther King did.”
Since protesting the national anthem, Kaepernick has defended a former Cuban Dictator, worn socks picturing pigs as police officers and his girlfriend suggested the Baltimore Ravens owner was a slave owner when the team signed another quarterback to a backup role instead of Kaepernick.
The left usually does a terrible job of picking its heroes, and Kaepernick is no exception.
Wearing a pro-Fidel Castro t-shirt—then defending his idolization of the communist dictator before a football game in Miami—shows a complete lack of understanding, as well as left-wing radicalization.
Kaepernick has organized a “Know Your Rights” camp targeted for kids in disadvantaged communities.
While the camp spends time on important issues like nutrition and sensible interaction with the police, it also peddles Marxist principles to the impressionable minds.
From The Nation:
In addition to the breakfasts and lunches provided, young people were given T-shirts that read “Know Your Rights” on the front. On the back, the shirts listed the following 10 points:
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE FREE.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HEALTHY.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE BRILLIANT.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE LOVED.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE COURAGEOUS.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE ALIVE.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TRUSTED.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE EDUCATED.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS.
The free breakfasts and the 10 points both derive, intentionally, from the political legacy of the Black Panthers. I spoke with Ameer Loggins, a young writer and PhD candidate at Cal-Berkeley who helped develop the Know Your Rights curriculum as well as the ten-point plan. “This is an extension of the Freedom Schools of the civil-rights movement, the Panther schools, and all non-institutional educational programs that go out into the communities.”
The first speaker was the aforementioned Ameer Loggins, who gave a college-level seminar on Chicago history, segregation, and structural racism. Loggins said, “Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States and no one talks about the effects of that in 2017. We talk about Selma and Jim Crow and the harm of segregation in the past but not the present. It’s not just segregation of space. It’s a segregation of resources and economics, food access, and property ownership…. Even if you say, ‘We had a black mayor, and Barack lives in Chicago,’ it doesn’t trickle down. People say we made it, but if our community doesn’t collectively benefit with resources, what the hell did we make it for?”
After going through the effects of 21st-century segregation—how it puts a person in a penned-in environment where they can be policed, subjected to violence, and denied resources—he made the argument that “young people just like you” made the civil-rights movement by “contesting segregated space,” and said, “You have the same power. Turn your segregated space into contested space. Don’t just sit there and take it.’
Kaepernick’s camp also has a section on financial literacy.
More from The Nation:
The talk of community gardens and, in the financial-literacy section, the importance of dressing and speaking in a professional manner, also produced a robust debate about whether it was realistic for these students to even find healthy food, save money, or dress a certain way, and whether those kinds of personal choices could beat back oppression. It was the century-old debate about what is known as “respectability politics”—whether racism needs to be fought systemically or by changing individual habits. Different speakers articulated different sides of this, with the students chiming in as well.
So the section on financial literacy was a debate about whether or not taking personal responsibility is a sound strategy.
If that sounds like indoctrination, it is. It’s no wonder kids playing Pop Warner football are kneeling.
American culture is in trouble if icons like Colin Kaepernick and Eminem, entertainers with a superficial knowledge of issues (and who have an agenda), are the beacons of wisdom and moral rectitude.
