This week Colon Kaepernick, the original kneeling football player, was honored with the annual Ho Chi Minh Red Star award for his efforts against capitalist oppression. The gem-encrusted jewel was presented by 1972 award recipient Jane Fonda at the ACLU of Southern Californias annual Bill of Rights Dinner.
Fonda hailed Kaepernicks extraordinary courage in the face of the extreme dangers he endured while being forced to risk life and limb for the amusement of unjustly rich team owners and rabidly racist fans of the barbaric sport as a player and the enmity of those who disrespected his right to disrespect the United States National Anthem and flag. His defiance has inspired fellow players to join his protest and fellow antifascists to take to the streets. He is truly Americas top anti-capitalist of the year.

Should go right along with his “Hero Of Socialist Labor” medal.
