The NFL made a huge mistake bending the knee to the woke left.
The league has been hit with bad ratings and the left still isn’t happy.
Now Colin Kaepernick threw the NFL under the bus for one shocking reason.
Colin Kaepernick remains furious at the NFL.
Ever since he started the anti-American anthem protests, Kaepernick has been treated as a martyr and a civil rights folk hero by the left.
But Kaepernick is no martyr.
He’s signed lucrative deals with massive corporations such as Random House, Disney, Nike, Netflix, and now EA Sports and Madden 21.
Despite not having played in three seasons, Kaepernick is featured in the video game and is rated ahead of former MVP Cam Newton and several current starters.
The appeasement has only emboldened Kaepernick, and now he’s ripping the NFL because his friend Eric Reid has not yet been signed by a team this season.
While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community. Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league. https://t.co/KQXTaOCcnU

Reid is not being blackballed by the NFL.
He’s played in each of the last four seasons despite kneeling alongside Kaepernick and remaining a vocal critic of “systemic racism.”
It wouldn’t make sense for the league to blackball Reid several years after his protest.
Reid even got a job last year after starting a fight with fellow anthem protester Malcolm Jenkins.
Reid accused Jenkins of being a “sellout” for negotiating with the NFL owners for a commitment to social justice causes.
Reid and Jenkins fought before a game in 2018, then Reid called Jenkins a “neocolonialist” after the game.
If Reid can get a job in the league after that, then he can certainly get one after a relatively quiet year in 2019.
The truth is that Reid struggles in coverage.
He’s only had one interception in the last two years and was part of a Carolina Panthers defense that got shredded as the year went on.
Reid did not have a good 2019 campaign.
That’s why he’s yet to be signed.
It’s also interesting to see that Kaepernick called the NFL’s social justice pandering “propaganda,” which is absolutely true.
The league made the fatal mistake of believing they could negotiate with hard leftists.
Kaepernick has been radicalized, and he cannot and will not be placated.
The left wants to get rid of the “Star-Spangled Banner” and replace it with John Lennon’s communist fever dream “Imagine.”
There is no middle ground with radical leftists.
The NFL needs to concern itself with its pro-America base and forget trying to mollify people who would be happy to see the sport of football cease to exist.
