Non-football fans on the far-left are emotionally invested in Colin Kaepernick.
It appears their mission in life is to get him a million-dollar contract so his “oppression” will end.
That’s why lunatic leftists rant every time another team picks up a quarterback over him.
Left-wing propagandist Michael Moore and “Black Lives Matter” opportunist Shaun King took to Twitter to excoriate the Jacksonville Jaguars for signing a backup quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick.
For a man who has said that he’s boycotting the NFL, Shaun King is remarkably aware of NFL personnel moves.
Late Tuesday night, the writer and activist took to Twitter to bemoan the Jaguars signing of Ryan Nassib. Yet another quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick. King tweeted:
The man has completed 9 passes…in his entire career.
Jaguars just signed him.
Kaepernick is unemployed.https://t.co/fLRWfEH5HZ

Why this move should surprise King, is somewhat a mystery. Jaguars VP Tom Coughlin couldn’t have made it more clear, just a couple weeks ago, that Jacksonville had no interest in signing Kaepernick. Nor, would one think, would Kaepernick have any real interest in going to there. Considering that he and Tom Coughlin would make for probably the oddest couple in all of the NFL. Given that Coughlin is a passionate football man and deeply patriotic. While Kaepernick is, well, the opposite of those things.
Nonetheless, King’s tweet got a response from another lefty who is boycotting the NFL, Michael Moore:
I continue my boycott of the NFL and its racist owners. https://t.co/F4gOkr25vL

What’s funny about this comment, is that the Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan, actually said he wouldn’t have a problem signing Kaepernick to his squad. However, Khan gave Coughlin full control of personnel all decisions. That’s why they chose not to sign Kaepernick, but that was Coughlin’s decision, not the supposedly racist owner’s.
Then of course, there’s the bomb Ray Lewis dropped earlier this month. In which he claims the Baltimore Ravens, with their white Owner Steve Bisciotti, were all-set to offer Kaepernick a contract. That is, before Kaepernick’s girlfriend tweeted a pic analogizing Bisciotti and Ray Lewis, to a slave master and Uncle Tom.
So, it wasn’t the racist white owner who conspired to thwart Kaepernick’s return to the league, it was his girlfriend. Maybe Michael Moore should boycott her?
The leftist prism is confusing. Shahid Khan, the Pakistani owner of the Jaguars, is somehow racist against Colin Kaepernick, presumably because his “victimhood” disappeared once he joined the white patriarchy of the NFL ownership structure.
Or perhaps Khan is a keen businessman who’s entrusted his subordinates to run the team as they see fit.
If Coughlin truly believed Kaepernick could help the Jaguars win football games, he would sign him. He wouldn’t risk losing his job, which could uproot his family, simply because of racism.
Kaepernick is an ordinary player with extraordinary baggage. That’s a terrible mix for a backup quarterback.
