49ers hypocritical BLM play: Kaepernick's anthem stunt won’t sit well with fans

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is stirring up controversy after his refusal to stand for the American national anthem during recent pre-season games.

His refusal to stand for the national anthem was a show of solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The 49ers released a statement affirming their support for his right to choose whether to stand or sit during the anthem but it's an important part of pregame tradition, regardless.

But the national anthem isn’t about race, religion, or any other issue the Black Lives Matter movement and social justice warriors want to make it about.

It symbolizes victory, freedom and the many American patriots that have fought and died for Kaepernick’s right to either sit or stand during the singing of the national anthem.

In my video, I look at Kaepernick’s background and current success and point out the hypocrisy at play in his disrespectful action.

This butthole is about as “black” as Phony black race hustler Rachel Dolezal – he’s more red than black as BLM is a Soros vehicle for deconstructing American sovereignty and culture and submerging it in a global Marxist dystopia. If I was this commie cuck’s coach he’d be benched until he salutes the flag and kisses the ground of the nation that allowed him the freedom to prosper. Maybe a free trip to Africa might change his mind.

The idiot needs to realize that anthem symbolizes the US and affords him his lavish lifestyle. He is disrespecting every man that ever fought and died for the freedoms he now enjoys. Spoiled little brat.

@sean Penson:
“He has every right to do this! Anthems should not be played at sporting events, as they are very divisive! "

The national anthem is divisive? The more you post the stupider you get. You should quit while you still remember your Internet handle. I am so sick of poor, challenged, depraved, privileged little cupcakes like you who spend all your time looking for a safe place lest someone offend you.

I agree that Kaepernick has the right to do this. But, I have the right to say he is a moron for doing it. America is a wonderful free country like Canada is and while we have our flaws (dipshit Trudeau is an example) we are free and will be as long as we can stave off Islamification.. Where would someone stupid and privileged as you be able to survive other then a country like Canada or the US.

Sean don’t ‘trigger me’.

He makes out like he has an obligation to act since he was fortunate enough to have this platform. To me it’s like an abuse of power. He is a football player. People expect football players to play football, not shoot their mouth off about the SJW topic of the year. Play ball and SFU. Nobody cares what you think, they care about how you perform your job. If you want to help black people go into their communities and help them build their lives. You make a car load of money, put some of it to good use in some of these places. Build a school, pay a teachers salary, set up small business loans and support. Be a big brother instead of just a big mouth!

Of all the dumbest things to protest over. At this rate, it won’t be long before the national anthem is abolished at sporting events and other places.

Too bad nobody who won gold at the Olympics refused to stand during the national anthem.

Years ago Liberace, the extremely flamboyant entertainer, refused to comment on social issues.
If I remember correctly he felt it was improper to delve into such things because it would tick off a large part of the show’s fan base and hurt the company paying his salary.
He was right and Kaepernick is a media/Obama created dick.

The Star Spangled Banner and the Marseillaise are national anthems born in times of adversity and peril, and not far apart in history. I am not American nor am I French, but both these national treasures never fail to move me. Enjoy them while you can, as there are movements afoot to strip all nations of nationality and all that includes. This NFL character who shows such disrespect for a symbol of a nation that has allowed him to become rich beyond avarice is said in other places to be a muslim.

He is free to do a s he wishes, but others can crap on him as well. I just wish he would realize BLM is highly racist. It is pretty sad.

There cannot be a more moving experience than standing in the middle of The Pearl Harbor Memorial as the Star Spangled Banner is broadcast at precisely 0800 hrs. A bugle is sounded at 0755 to give notice to all base personnel and visitors in order that they can prepare for the show of respect and dignity during the colors ceremony. A few minutes of one’s time to observe respect for those that died in the service to their country.
Whatever Kaepernicks issue, he chose an extremely undignified way to express his opinion. Undignified and an insult to the thousands that have died in the pursuit of liberty.

The guy is a jerk but I have to support his right to be a jerk. Free speech takes priority over a jerk being a jerk.

If Colin had any character, which is now being called into question, he would donate his salary and his time to make underprivileged black youth’s life better. If he thinks he can make his point better by being an entitled pro athlete with an upper middle class background he is sorely mistaken. Let your deeds not your words speak for you.

This idiot’s teammates ought to pull a BLM-racist-thug-attack and gang up on him, kick the livin’ shit out of him and then kick him off the team – send a message to all the rest of the BLM racist thug criminals and Islam lovin’ traitors – DON’T F**K WITH AMERICA!
…of course the NFL itself has pretty much turned into an America hating PC mess:

United States of America

The Star Spangled Banner

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave
