It’s a shocking revelation that embattled former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn’t made national headlines in a while because the liberal media is obsessed with him.
The last time Kaepernick made the news was when he settled his collusion lawsuit with the NFL, which many thought was estimated in the $50-80 million range but then it was uncovered that it was likely in between $5-15 million. Kaepernick is a joke.
And now Senator Kamala Harris revealed something insane about Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling controversy.
What can’t those dastardly Russian robots do?
Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris has blamed the media commotion surrounding former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling during the national anthem on the Kremlin’s minions.
In a radio interview with New York-based The Breakfast Club Harris outlined her (completely original and not at all parroted by the media for the last two years) theory that every social fault line and division in America has a “Russian Bot” behind it.
She said, “They test out a couple of things to see what can get the American public going at each other, pointing fingers at each other. Guess what gains the most heat? Race.”
Harris asked – referring to the NFL star’s refusal to stand for the national anthem in 2016 – “Remember the heat that ended up around the ‘bend the knee’ and Colin Kaepernick? Many smart people have said it actually was not a thing…the Russian bots started taking that on.”
Harris didn’t reveal who the “many smart people” she cited were, but did say that she feels “targeted” by the shadowy Russian bots.
Nor did she mention the homegrown hoopla over Kaepernick’s protest. Within the borders of the USA, the American media needed no Kremlin help to saturate the news cycle with the Kaepernick controversy.
CNN has to date published 664 stories referencing the kneeling quarterback, while the New York Times has mentioned him in 1,190 articles.
However, facts don’t seem to matter to hardened ‘Russiagaters.’ Harris’ words suggest a sinister Russian ploy to systematically exploit division and sow discord. Instead, this trolling was mostly limited in 2016 to scattergun tweets and gifs disseminated over social media, with little clarity over whether they actually came from Russia in the first place.
Even the most sinister Russian ‘troll farm’ of them all –the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency (IRA)– was revealed last week by a federal judge to be unconnected to the Russian government, rendering Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of IRA personnel meaningless.
So there you have it. Harris seems to be obnoxiously linking Russia to Colin Kaepernick.
It’s unbelievable that Harris is a leading contender for the Democratic nomination for president when she spouts off about this kind of ridiculous nonsense. Liberals seem to eat this kind of stuff up though, which is why she’s so popular in the Democratic Party.
