Nobody in the NFL wants anti-American protester Colin Kaepernick.
Despite his poor play, Kaepernick believes it’s his right to get back in the league, so he’s suing the NFL.
Kaepernick hired prestigious lawyer Mark Geragos, and he just made a bold statement on behalf of his client.
Geragos said that Kaepernick will be back in the NFL very soon. The left-wing media’s hearts are aflutter at the news.
From The Sporting News:
Mark Geragos on Tuesday said he expects an NFL team to sign Kaepernick within the next 10 days.
“I think somebody’s gonna sign him,” Geragos told The Adam Carolla Show. “I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more.”
Kaepernick has been jobless since opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March. He became a controversial figure when he began kneeling during the national anthem last August to protest police brutality against people of color and other racial injustices.
After several players with less impressive resumes were signed this season, Kaepernick filed a collusion lawsuit against the NFL owners on Oct. 15.
Several players followed Kaepernick’s lead by either kneeling, sitting, or raising a fist during the anthem. Players like Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, Eagles corner Malcolm Jenkins and 49ers safety Eric Reid continued their protests this season.
However, media on the hard left have a more radical take.
This morsel from the New York Daily News shows just how emotionally invested the left is in Kaepernick’s cause:
Quarterback play has been so bad this season that the [San Francisco 49ers] has decided to waive Brian Hoyer, the person who they chose to replace Kaepernick, and have sent rookie C.J. Beathard back to the bench after trading a second-round pick for former Patriot backup Jimmy Garoppolo.
That’s right, San Francisco gave up a very valuable draft pick just to save face because they refuse to admit that not re-signing Kaepernick was a mistake. It’s one of the 49ers’ worst moves in franchise history, but they’ll never admit it. And although Kaepernick opted out of his contract at the end of last season, 49ers general manager John Lynch made it perfectly clear that he wasn’t going to be a part of their future plans.
The author’s assessment of the 49ers’ quarterback situation is laughably incorrect. The team brought in a completely new regime from top to bottom, and went into heavy rebuilding mode.
Kaepernick wasn’t part of their rebuilding plans because he’s not a traditional dropback passer, which is what head coach Kyle Shanahan prefers in his offense. Kaepernick also was 1-10 as a starter (and was benched the year prior for poor play), so not bringing him back hardly qualifies as “one of the worst moves in franchise history.”
Moreover, suggesting the 49ers traded for Jimmy Garoppolo to “save face” is inane. Garoppolo was the most sought-after young quarterback in the league. The Patriots wanted him to be the successor to Tom Brady, but Garoppolo will be a free agent at the end of the year and he’s eager to play. Many in the NFL believed Garoppolo would’ve netted more than a 2nd-round pick in a trade.
The author continues and discusses why he doesn’t want Kaepernick back in the league:
An angry fan base, his girlfriend’s tweets and the notion that “he doesn’t fit into our offensive system” have all been excuses used as to why teams won’t sign Kaepernick.
But at the core of this is anger and racism.
White NFL owners are losing control of their teams, as black players are starting to use their platforms to speak on issues that are important to them, and it’s rubbing owners the wrong way.
Kaepernick is the sacrificial lamb that the NFL and this country need. Because of his sacrifice, progress will be made.
Which is why in a sad and twisted way, I’m happy that Kaepernick will never put on a pair of pads again.
Because if he does and players stop kneeling, then the dialogue may stop, and the progress may come to a halt.
We need Colin Kaepernick to stay right where he is so that we can move past where we are.
The hard left in the media don’t want Kaepernick in the league because they believe his work as a revolutionary is far more important.
This was never about Colin Kaepernick or police brutality.
This was about the socialist utopia that’s just over the rainbow, and Kaepernick is the left’s latest sacrificial lamb.
