Colin Kaepernick continues to affect people everywhere.
The leftists praise the former NFL quarterback as if he’s the second coming of Jesus because he kneeled during the national anthem.
And now Kaepernick’s actions have caused the president of one university to resign.
What has Kaepernick actually accomplished since first kneeling during the national anthem?
He’s normalized disrespecting the American flag, but that’s it.
Several NFL players took up the mantle after Kaepernick was so-called “blackballed” from the league.
It’s almost as if Kaepernick “martyred” his career so that others could follow in his footsteps, which is why fans are no longer fans—they’ve had enough of the disrespect.
Kaepernick’s actions have now spread over into high schools and at the collegiate levels – like in the case of Kennesaw State University where cheerleaders emulated Kaepernick by taking a knee.
And the president of the university, Sam Olens, has officially had to resign after receiving extreme backlash for trying to make the cheerleaders stand during the anthem.
“Kennesaw State University president Sam Olens, has resigned his position after coming under fire for attempting to prevent university cheerleaders from taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem.
In October, a group of Kennesaw State University cheerleaders decided to emulate the NFL’s anti-American protests and began taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem at school games.
Dubbed “The Kennesaw Five,” the group of African American cheerleaders sparked controversy at the school and among some local lawmakers who immediately let their displeasure be known.
President Olens quickly took action, but was accused of bowing to the local officials after he ruled that the cheer team would not be allowed to take the field until after the national anthem was played.
Olens’ decision, of course, didn’t satisfy those who supported the cheer team’s protest. The school chief soon came under fire from students who supported the protests, causing him to reverse his decision and allow the cheerleaders to continue their protests during the national anthem.
Now, it looks like the embattled school president has thrown in the towel.
“I have decided that new leadership will be required for KSU to fully realize its potential,” Olens wrote in an email to faculty and students, according to Yahoo Sports.
Supporters of the protests crowed about their “success.”
“The KSU cheerleaders will go down in civil rights history,” said Kennesaw professor Susan Raines.
“What little power they had made a difference, and that should be a lesson to all of us.”
It isn’t exactly clear what kind of “success” Olens’ resignation offers where it concerns the purported causes the cheerleaders were protesting.
How the abdication of a liberal university president effects any “change” for “police brutality” or the fight for “equal rights” is anyone’s guess.”
At one point is enough, enough?
We should all be proud of this country and what it stands for. Is that too much to ask?
