The athletes doth protest too ignorantly, methinks. Whether foolish NFL quarterbacks (and their like-minded playmates) or double-minded NBA athletes, the affluent agitators should direct their political and social ire elsewhere. Instead, theyve joined their Hollywood cohorts as mouthpieces for the Democrat Party. Of course, it should come as little surprise that expensive American entertainers have made themselves tools of the perverse modern left.
Take Colin Kaepernick (PLEASE, his agent cries!). His failed efforts at protesting during the National Anthem were predicated upon a lie. After his initial protest in the 2016 preseason, NFL Media reported,
I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color, Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.
In other words, Kaepernick has bought the lies of Black Lives Matter, hook, line, and sinker.

Kap converted to Islam. That was the basis of his hatred of America, but the MSM won’t tell you that.
Well I', sure Colin could point out several other nations where black people live with more freedom and a higher standard of living.
Wow. Hadn’t heard that. You have a source?
Yeah, for some reason they’re never in a hurry to move.
Black Votes Matter!
Instead, theyve joined their Hollywood cohorts as mouthpieces for the Democrat Party.
People were not influenced by the opinions of Hollywood celebs. They won’t be influenced by the childish antics of the NFL either.
So, cops prefer latinos.
Oh, but maybe they shot no orientals, so orientals are the preferred demographic?
“Hands up! Don’t shoot!” never happened.
TWENTY FIVE TOP QUOTES FROM THE DOJ’S REPORT ON THE MICHAEL BROWN SHOOTING
(For official DOJ report, Google “DOJ Report on Shooting of Michael Brown PDF.”)
 The evidence, when viewed as a whole, does not support the conclusion that Wilsons uses of deadly force were objectively unreasonable under the Supreme Courts definition. (Page 5)
 when the store clerk tried to stop Brown, Brown used his physical size to stand over him and forcefully shove him away. (Page 6)
 Wilson was aware of the theft and had a description of the suspects as he encountered Brown and Witness 101. (Page 6)
 Autopsy results and bullet trajectory, skin from Browns palm on the outside of the SUV door as well as Browns DNA on the inside of the drivers door corroborate Wilsons account that during the struggle, Brown used his right hand to grab and attempt to control Wilsons gun. (Page 6)
 there is no credible evidence to disprove Wilsons account of what occurred inside the SUV. (Page 7)
 autopsy results confirm that Wilson did not shoot Brown in the back as he was running away because there were no entrance wounds to Browns back. (Page 7)
 witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts (Page 8)
 several witnesses stated that Brown appeared to pose a physical threat to Wilson as he moved toward Wilson. (Page 8)
 The physical evidence also establishes that Brown moved forward toward Wilson after he turned around to face him. The physical evidence is corroborated by multiple eyewitnesses. (Page 10)
 evidence does not establish that it was unreasonable for Wilson to perceive Brown as a threat while Brown was punching and grabbing him in the SUV and attempting to take his gun. (Page 11)
 Wilsons account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses (Page 12)
 Wilsons account was consistent with those results, and consistent with the accounts of other independent eyewitnesses, whose accounts were also consistent with the physical evidence. Wilsons statements were consistent with each other in all material ways, and would not be subject to effective impeachment for inconsistencies or deviation from the physical evidence.8 Therefore, in analyzing all of the evidence, federal prosecutors found Wilsons account to be credible. (Page 16)
 Witness accounts suggesting that Brown was standing still with his hands raised in an unambiguous signal of surrender when Wilson shot Brown are inconsistent with the physical evidence, are otherwise not credible because of internal inconsistencies, or are not credible because of inconsistencies with other credible evidence. (Page 78)
 Multiple credible witnesses corroborate virtually every material aspect of Wilsons account and are consistent with the physical evidence. (Page 78)
 several of these witnesses stated that they would have felt threatened by Brown and would have responded in the same way Wilson did. (Page 82)
 there are no witnesses who could testify credibly that Wilson shot Brown while Brown was clearly attempting to surrender. (Page 83)
 There is no witness who has stated that Brown had his hands up in surrender whose statement is otherwise consistent with the physical evidence. (Page 83)
 The media has widely reported that there is witness testimony that Brown said dont shoot as he held his hands above his head. In fact, our investigation did not reveal any eyewitness who stated that Brown said dont shoot. (Page 83)
 Wilson did not know that Brown was not armed at the time he shot him, and had reason to suspect that he might be when Brown reached into the waistband of his pants as he advanced toward Wilson. (Page 84)
 Wilson did not have time to determine whether Brown had a gun and was not required to risk being shot himself in order to make a more definitive assessment.
 In addition, even assuming that Wilson definitively knew that Brown was not armed, Wilson was aware that Brown had already assaulted him once and attempted to gain control of his gun. (Page 85)
 Wilson has a strong argument that he was justified in firing his weapon at Brown as he continued to advance toward him and refuse commands to stop, and the law does not require Wilson to wait until Brown was close enough to physically assault Wilson. (Page 85)
 we must avoid substituting our personal notions of proper police procedure for the instantaneous decision of the officer at the scene. We must never allow the theoretical, sanitized world of our imagination to replace the dangerous and complex world that policemen face every day. (Page 85)
 It may appear, in the calm aftermath, that an officer could have taken a different course, but we do not hold the police to such a demanding standard. (citing Gardner v. Buerger, 82 F.3d 248, 251 (8th Cir. 1996) (same))). Rather, where, as here, an officer points his gun at a suspect to halt his advance, that suspect should be on notice that escalation of the situation would result in the use of the firearm. Estate of Morgan at 498. An officer is permitted to continue firing until the threat is neutralized. See Plumhoff v. Rickard, 134 S.Ct. 2012, 2022 (2014) (Officers need not stop shooting until the threat has ended). For all of the reasons stated, Wilsons conduct in shooting Brown as he advanced on Wilson, and until he fell to the ground, was not objectively unreasonable and thus not a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 242. (Page 85)
 Given that Wilsons account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses, to include aspects of the testimony of Witness 101, there is no credible evidence that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was attempting to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat. (Page 86)
For the reasons set forth above, this matter lacks prosecutive merit and should be closed.
No more taxpayer supported stadiums.
Let them find another country since they don’t like this one.
Even Kaepernick’s mother called him a whiny, little BITCH. (I added the whiny, little part, but she DID call him a BITCH in an anti-Trump Tweet.)
How is it good for a brand to go from Mr Clean to John McCain impersonating John Kerry?
As an aside did you notice in that Alabama speech president Trump admitted to doing what I have long said he does. He brands people - with a white hot iron. When you name something you gain power over it.
The iron is in the fire NFL and the art of the deal has mastered the art of timing he will strike while its still hot - here it comes aholes.
The military needs to cease any involvement in anyway with any NFL team as they have become anti American.
Maybe, just maybe, blacks are involved in drugs, gangs, and crime at a disproportionate rate as compared to the rest of society? And perhaps this is because the Democrat party has failed black people? and just maybe, that was their intent all along. You know the Democrat party-the party that is responsible for slavery in America, the civil war, the KKK, Jim Crow, the assassination of countless black leaders, etc....
I do not care who, where or what race one is- if you can’t assimilate, learn our damn language and/or refuse to stand
for the National Anthem-we will throw you out of America.
Kap will be hired by a team, wait and see.
Some douche “take a knee” owner or manager will give him a job to make a statement. Now that they have come out of the closet...
Thank you. What makes it even better is those quotes are from the highly politicized Obama Justice Department.
#factsdontmatter. The aburdity is frankly, abusrd. What a load of BS. On the bright side, those that are PO’d at the kneeling antics are possibly not watching and those that support the kneelers are not watching because of the “injustice” by nobody hiring crapernick. Sounds like a lose lose for the nfl to me.
There is no evidence he is lying. None.
He's a average QB pretending to be a SJW by being a jerk.
