Limbaugh: Kaepernick-Nike Shoe Saga Proof NFL Kneeling Not About Police Brutality — ‘He Opposes Honoring the Flag’

Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh argued that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s opposition to Nike’s so-called Betsy Ross footwear was proof Kaepernick’s kneeling was not about alleged police brutality but animosity toward the American flag.

Nike pulled the product line based on Kaepernick’s opposition, which came because the footwear featured the Betsy Ross flag.

Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com):

The Washington media-political complex, if you will, authors the daily script. It’s one-sided. How does Nike let one person sway them into ditching an entirely already-made shoe, featuring — by the way — a flag designed by Betsy Ross. Now, did not Kaepernick tell us when he began kneeling — as a barely-could-get-on-the-field bench rider for the San Francisco 49ers. Did he not tell us that he was kneeling to protest police brutality? Did he not tell us this? He did! That’s all it was. He was protesting the fact that the cops were shooting people like him.

That the cops are shooting black people and women and minorities first. It was all about the cops. Except it wasn’t! It was about the flag all along! He was taking a knee because he opposes the country! He opposes the national anthem. He opposes honoring the flag. This proves it! They always lie. They always lie to us. They hide so much of their real core. Even when they are in the process of displaying it, they still deceive. And there was the media and the Democrat Party applauding the guts and the courage of the forever untalented bench retired, Colin Kaepernick.

Then the media led the charge demanding that NFL owners hire the guy every time they had a starting quarterback that’d get injured, and none of the NFL owners wanted the hassle. Nobody wants somebody anti-American on their team, certainly not as starting quarterback. The media does, though! The media wants Kaepernick starring… Not starring. He’s not capable of that. They want him playing for some team so that they can carry the narrative through every NFL game he’s playing — and then, of course, he’ll get other players to join him ’cause they’ll want to shine in the spotlight.

The NFL then can be presented as an anti-American institution and the people leading the anti-Americanism will be made heroes. We’ll be told that they are very courageous.

Colin Kaepernick Has Something Else He Hates About America, This Thanksgiving Holiday


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on November 24, 2017

If there is any holiday celebrating American history, you can count on Colin Kaepernick to hate it. The unemployed professional footballer joined Native American activists at their annual “Un-Thanksgiving” protest on Alcatraz Island.

The Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering holds a demonstration every year to honor the 1969 take over of Alcatraz by Native American activists. The occupation of the island lasted for two years, to which the protestors effectively brought change to federal government policy on ‘Indian affairs,’ the East Bay Times reports.

At the present day ceremony, speakers at the event condemned the “current-day American genocide,” and presented two eagle feathers to Kaepernick as a tribute from an elder for the athlete’s protest against our national anthem:

This is what Kaepernick said about the experience.

“Our fight is the same fight. We’re all fighting for our justice, for our freedom,” Kaepernick told the demonstrators.

He continued, “And realizing that we are in this fight together makes us all the more powerful.”

Via the San Francisco Chronicle he continued to say: If there’s one thing that I take away from today and seeing the beauty of everybody out here, it’s that we’re only getting stronger every day, we’re only getting larger and larger every day. I see the strength in everybody. 

The dancing, the rituals – that is our resistance. We continue to fight. We continue to fight for justice. We fight for our freedom, and we continue on that path.

Kaepernick is still unemployed as an NFL player. He now, however, has done multiple media appearances to represent Black Lives Matter.

LIBERAL LOGIC: J.J. Watt Raises $37M For Hurricane Relief – GQ Gives Kaepernick ‘Citizen If The Year’


Published by ClashDaily.com | on November 14, 2017

Dear GQ — HERE is a real NFL hero. And it sure as heck ain’t Mr. Pig Socks.

In this upside-down good is bad and bad is good world that we now live in, slacktivist Colin Kaepernick, — whose claim to fame is not standing for the anthem — is showered with praise and named by GQ the ‘Citizen of the Year’, but J.J. Watt, an actual NFL player for the Houston Texans, raised millions of dollars in hurricane relief and a big ‘meh’ from GQ.

The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year launched a fund on YouCaring.com to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey on Aug. 26 with an initial goal of $200,000. At the time, that seemed like a sizable yet attainable goal. In hindsight, perhaps Watt (and the rest of us) underestimated humanity’s goodwill and willingness to help others in need.

Watt recently closed the fundraiser after raising an astonishing $37,097,298, which is more than 185 times his initial goal. More than 200,000 people donated, meaning Watt got as many donors as he expected dollars.

Watch how he was received by fans:

His accomplishment was immense:

The fundraiser’s progress has been accelerated by a few big-time donations from billionaires. Charles Butt, who owns the San Antonio-based supermarket chain H-E-B, donated $5 million, while Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk donated $1 million.

A number of celebrities have contributed to the cause; new Houston Rocket Chris Paul raised $50,000, H-Town lover Drake put up $200,000 and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon announced that his program would donate $1 million.

The slight didn’t go unnoticed.

It’s official — Leftism is a mental disorder. It must be.

How else can you explain revering Kaepernick and ignoring Watt?

Kaep Loves Protesting on Live TV, but Here’s the 1 Photo He Wants Kept Secret

When former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the anti-American trend of sitting or taking a knee while the national anthem was played, he insisted he was using his platform to raise awareness and start a broader dialogue regarding perceived racial inequalities in America and police brutality.

Other players who have joined the protest trend have echoed those sentiments, and while some of them may truly believe it and think they aren’t being disrespectful or un-American, the reality is that many Americans do indeed find their actions to be quite disrespectful and offensive.

And in Kaepernick’s case, just a wee bit hypocritical.

You see, while the bi-racial Kaepernick rails against the perceived oppression of minorities in America by a “white supremacist” system, he himself doesn’t appear to have been all that “oppressed” and held back from opportunity by “white people,” but was in fact raised and presented with a multitude of opportunity by white people, namely his adoptive white mother and father.

Viral Cartoon Perfectly Explains How Utterly Pointless Kaepernick’s “Protest” Is

The debate over NFL players kneeling in protest of the national anthem, a protest started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last year, grew thick over the weekend when President Donald Trump waded into the middle of it.

Proponents of the protest insist that kneeling during the anthem is a way to draw attention to the racism and police brutality that occurs within the United States. While these protests certainly have brought up the topics of race and police, in reality they have accomplished nothing. A cartoon that is circulating the internet perfectly sums up just how ineffective these protests are.

The cartoon depicts Kaepernick sitting on top of a pile of bodies, labeled “black on black murder”. In a word bubble, cartoon Kaepernick states that he’ll continue to sit until police brutally is eliminated.

Despite Kaepernick’s supposed care for violence against blacks, has said little of the bloodshed that has ravaged the black community in the form of black on black crime. In fact, 2015 data from the FBI showed that 2,380 African-Americans were killed by other African-Americans, while 229 African-Americans were killed by people identified as white.

Those are some pretty lopsided statistics, but you don’t see anyone kneeling during the national anthem protesting “black-on-black” murders — or making a stand against black crime whatsoever. That’s because these protesters don’t actually care about stopping violence against African-Americans — all they care about is themselves.

These football players see these protests as a chance to gain a following (because being professional football players apparently isn’t enough). If they cared about stopping the violence, they would do something other than kneel.

Take a look around. Have the kneeling NFL players actually accomplished anything other than dividing this nation further? Kneeling, linking arms, and even staying in the a locker room during the national anthem accomplishes nothing — all it does is show a complete lack of respect for those who sacrificed their lives for this nation.

There are racial problems in America — there’s no denying that — but trying to paint a one-sided picture of violence in the United States is only makes things worse.
