  • Black Panther-Inspired Kaepernick Comes Out Swinging at Systemic Oppression

    Hey, any of you NFL owners out there interested in entrusting your team's fortunes this season to a man leading a Black Panther-inspired movement and a fight for black liberation in his spare time? Yes, it's Colin Kaepernick, who came out swinging at police, system oppression and the NFL again today, practically taking over The Paper, a publication featuring commie radical Angela Davis, Kaepernick's kneeling sidekick Eric Reid, and Victoria Secret's first trans model. While serious pro quarterbacks are devoting themselves to the upcoming 2019 NFL season, Kaepernick (seen in file photo explaining his protest in 2016) lashed out with...

    An attorney representing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sharply criticized rapper Jay-Z on Tuesday after Jay-Z met with NFL officials to speak about social justice issues while Kaepernick remains unemployed. SNIP Mark Geragos, who is representing Kaepernick in his dealings with the NFL, told ABC News that the partnership amounted to crossing an "intellectual picket line." "This deal between Jay-Z and the NFL crosses the intellectual picket line," Geragos told ABC. "I can confirm to you that the deal was already done prior to any conversation that [Kaepernick] had with Jay-Z and he certainly didn’t have any conversations...

    RUSH: Jay-Z being hired by the NFL. We were going to get into this yesterday and of course time expired before I had a chance to get into it. And here’s what happened: Jay-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter. He’s the husband of Beyonce. And they’ve put together a massive musical empire. His net worth reportedly is a billion dollars. You should know that’s not enough to own an NFL team. You need more than that to be approved for ownership. It’s not enough anymore. So the NFL has hired Jay-Z essentially as music director for the Super Bowl halftime...

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he's ready to return to the NFL in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday. The video starts with a countdown saying, "Denied work for 889 days." The quarterback turned political activist has not been offered a contract with an NFL team since being released by the 49ers after the 2016 season when he made headlines for kneeling during the national anthem at games. The 49ers went 1-10 in Kaepernick's 11 starts that season, and he threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns with four interceptions. Despite not being in the league...

    Tunnel to Towers Foundation CEO Frank Siller said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday that four Gold Star families will receive brand-new homes thanks to the proceeds from sales of Rush Limbaugh's "Betsy Ross" flag T-shirt. Limbaugh said Monday on the show that sales of the $27 shirt had skyrocketed in recent weeks, enough for $3 million to be donated to the foundation, which helps the families of veterans and law enforcement. Siller, who started Tunnel to Towers in memory of his brother -- a New York firefighter who lost his life on 9/11 -- said the goal is to build...

    Thought I’d take just a few moments to explain just what the gob-smacking greatness of Trump really is. Nobody seems to be aware of it. So I fly in like mighty mouse to “save the day!” BTW-on a side note I am seeing Trump with his Sir Kaepernick commercial and now his picked fight with the right honorable Omar person and the super-right honorable AOC. Here’s my suggestion. As the election draws near, do a commercial where you morph Kaepernick and have the illustrious 2 beside him. They could be the new Tony Orlando and Dawn. Morph it up. They...

    The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) called on Nike Thursday to end its relationship with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has a prominent endorsement deal with the athletic company. Rev. William Owens, president of CAAP, said his organization is responding to Nike’s decision to pull an athletic shoe celebrating the Betsy Ross flag after Kaepernick expressed objections to it. “It has been clear for a long time that Colin Kaepernick’s views represent hard Left anti-American politics,” said Owens, a civil rights movement activist who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “They don’t represent most Americans, and they...

    A new Gallup poll shines a spotlight on the deep political divide in America and surely points to what the upcoming presidential election will be about. Gallup asked, "How proud are you to be an American?" Seventy-six percent of Republicans said "extremely proud" compared with 22 percent of Democrats. Broken down by age, 63% of those over 65 said "extremely proud," and only 24% of those 18 to 29. This tells us something about Nike's recent move to pull its Betsy Ross flag sneakers from the marketplace, having taken guidance from its ex-football star anti-hero, now-Nike corporate spokesman, Colin Kaepernick....

    If you follow the news at all you are aware that recently Nike announced the release of a line of sneakers with a Revolutionary War-era American flag, known commonly as the “Betsy Ross” flag on them, and, that Nike then almost immediately announced that the release would not take place. According to multiple press reports, complaints by Nike spokesman Colin Kaepernick about the racist nature of the American flag depicted on the sneakers prompted the abrupt change of direction. Kaepernick, it appears, history buff that he is, was offended by Mrs. Ross’ handiwork, although what role Betsy, a Philadelphia Quaker...

    The lyrics of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" by Julia Ward Howe include the words "With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me ..." The enemies of our Republic need to be transfigured. Rep. Ilhan Omar, tweeting her thoughts about July 4 stated, "Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people. We are at a tipping point for progress." This rebuke of our socio-political system contrasted with her joyful dancing at the...

    Former San Francisco 49ers Player Colin Kaepernick, apparently still riding the endorphin-high triggered by his beating up on a pair of sneakers, has now gone after the whole of American independence. In a now-infamous tweet, Kaepernick quoted Frederick Douglass’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” speech, pairing it with a video showing scenes of slavery, civil-rights era abuses, and apparent police brutality against African Americans. A voice-over features the narration of James Earl Jones reading a portion of the Douglass speech. The video makes the poisonous accusation that American independence does not include black Americans. Kaerpernick posted...

    Colin Kaepernick’s history teachers should be ashamed of themselves. They either failed to teach him real history, or they succeeded in indoctrinating him into a false political narrative. Either way, he was short-changed and missed out on one of history’s greatest stories. To associate the 1776 American flag with slavery is to miss the purpose and genius of the American Revolution. The former football player turned well-paid corporate activist put the kibosh on a special edition Nike shoe because it sported the Betsy Ross flag on the heel. I’m sure you’ve heard that much. Kaepernick’s reason, which I’m sure you’ve...

    Sen. Ted Cruz gave Colin Kaepernick a history lesson on Thursday after the former San Francisco 49ers player posted a quote from abolitionist Frederick Douglass on Independence Day. “What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour,” Kaepernick tweeted, quoting from Douglass’s “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” speech, which was delivered on July 5, 1852 to the Rochester Ladies’...

    Sen. Ted Cruz responded Thursday night after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a passage earlier on the Fourth of July from a famous speech by Civil War-era abolitionist Frederick Douglass. The passage Kaepernick cites is from Douglass’ speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Douglass delivered to the speech at a meeting of the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 – nearly nine years before the Civil War began. But the former San Francisco 49ers signal-caller includes a video montage of a longer version of the speech, accompanied by drawings depicting...

    Donald Trump Jr. had a scathing critique of the athletic company Nike after it decided to pull a sneaker bearing a flag used during the American Revolution. Instead of using that older version of the American flag, Trump Jr. suggested Nike should unveil a communist-style shoe looking similar to the hammer-and-sickle logo of the former Soviet Union. "If the Betsy Ross Flag, the flag of the American Revolution, is too offensive for Nike to commemorate The 4th of July maybe Nike should go with this... seems to be more in line with their views," Trump Jr. tweeted on Wednesday.
