San Francisco’s washed-up quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, is GQ’s Citizen of the Year.
A former multimillionaire NFL cry-baby who openly disrespected the national anthem and proudly proclaimed he’s never voted, is citizen of the year? An ingrate who wouldn’t grant GQ an interview on being proclaimed, is citizen of the year?
Has the definition of citizenship changed in recent months?
It’s understandable why Kaepernick wouldn’t grant an interview because it seems he can’t even explain what he hoped to achieve with his anthem protest.
So, what was GQ thinking by choosing Kaepernick, other than trying to generate controversy – along with the reams of publicity that comes with it?
GQ could’ve chosen a real hero – a maker rather than a taker. Someone decorated with the Medal of Honor, who’s been described as the “bravest of the brave”?
They could have chosen someone like Clinton Romesha, who delivered a stirring speech at Virginia Tech last weekend.
In a world obsessed with Kaepernicks and Khardasians, it’s somewhat tragic Clinton Romesha isn’t a household name.
Staff Sergeant Romesha answered the call of duty during an engagement that took the lives of eight American soldiers. He killed multiple enemy fighters, recovered fallen soldiers, and lead multiple resupply and counterattack operations despite being wounded.
Thanks to his off the chart bravery, his troop was able to regroup and fight off a force far superior in number.
Given the choice, who would you proclaim Citizen of the Year? An egomaniacal social justice warrior protesting a bogus cause or a real warrior who put his life on the line defending his country and all it stands for?
