GQ’s “Citizen of the Year” goes to “football zero” instead of military hero

David MenziesMission Specialist

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?

Isn’t GQ a magazine for tossers and soy boys?

Drew, that’s a fair question!

Tammie without new tech like Alexa how would Frank and other progressives know what to think?

Jan G, can you believe inviting a technological SJW spy into your house?!!!
Louder with Crowder ( Steve and not gay Jay) prove Alexa is a socialist propaganda machine!

I’m repeating your pick of the day on Steve Louder’s coverage and demonstration of the electronic ‘Alexa’.

Way to go Menzoid.
You take a good swipe at the MSM Fake News liars, and the low scum they print their BS about, and exposed us all to a real hero.
And thanks for sharing that great story about Staff Sergeant Clinton Romesha.

Frank Hohimer you are a sheep , not any of us. Now go support m-103 and hug a returning ISIS fighter like a good drone. And go run around like Chicken Little because some globalists say the earth is dying LMAO!
commented 2017-11-26 19:30:37 -0500
Frank Hohimer the Rebel is doing that and you crap on them, so your comment is utter HYPOCRISY!
Kapernick is a spoiled brat pushing a phony agenda.

Jack, the football players are protesting on the job…unless there is a strike or lockout, protests are not appropriate and, can lead to termination in most workplaces. I’m sure the NFL views your juvenile assessment as unfortunate. They are losing money and fans have given them the finger for allowing it to go on.
You totally skipped over MLK quote….yep, you’re conscientious stupidity is glaring!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Perhaps what they believe in is more important to them over ratings and ticket selling. Of course this wouldn’t occur to you, because you are a sheep being told what to think and say by kooks.
commented 2017-11-26 16:10:43 -0500
Well, they gave the Woman of the year award to a GUY, so nothing ass-backwards that the Progs dream up, really even comes as a surprise anymore. Just more Libtardism at its finest.
commented 2017-11-26 15:52:17 -0500
Poor Jack, under the delusion Kaepernick is worthy of accolades….go wash your Che t-shirt!

Hey no worries Jack, your so called revolutionary & his followers are emptying seats at the stadiums pretty regularly now.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

No, it can also be someone who stands up for what they believe in and start a revolution as he clearly has done.

I wouldn’t expect you to understand that, since you are told what to think and say and are not capable of an original thought.
commented 2017-11-26 11:12:57 -0500
Shouldn’t “man of the year” at least have a job and be a contributing member of society; who in addition to taking care of his family, is community minded and helps out whenever possible?!!!
commented 2017-11-26 08:52:22 -0500
Shrug. What’s a GQ?
commented 2017-11-25 22:05:48 -0500
BWAHAHAHAAA i guess you maybe should have taken that contract offer before your career died eh moron? If you are debating about Kapernick with others online and they say he was pushed out of the NFL ,please remind the useful idiots that he was offered a good contract and he declined it.
commented 2017-11-25 21:54:02 -0500
Sad Contrast.

Kapaernick and trudeau have a lot in
commented 2017-11-25 19:34:31 -0500
I actually admire Kapaernick for his capitalistic self opportunity. He was a second or third stringer going no where in football, and now he is guaranteed easy income for the rest of his life. Basically the Rodman of football but without the athletic skill that Rodman had.

Really, very brilliant way to secure his future, because that is the only thing it was about. He good give a copulated rodent’s anus about the unprivileged black.

Martin Ashfield, good one!

Yep, GQ overlooked Canada’s mindless hairdo…there’s always next year!

Kaepernick has so much to complain about. Yea. Right.

Being a “football hero”, and paid millions to be so, somehow gives him a platform to preach to the world about injustices that he perceives as being so. Facts and truth don’t matter. Its what he believes and therefore it is.

Self diluted fool that he is, he now cries that he is being blackballed by the NFL. Even if he were the best football quarterback, no team would want someone who is disruptive and brings shame to the team. That he can’t get hired is his own fault. If he needs to know the reason, he should look in a mirror and stare at his mouth.

For the US Thanksgiving he joined a group of Indians to protect Thanksgiving. The “Turtle Island” people are not thankful. OK, Kaepernick, take the dive and give them all your money and possessions. Take a stand and lead the way by action, not virtue signalling.

The only good SJW (if that is possible) is a working for a living SJW. (Working for a living is a cure for SJWism.) He no longer works. Ergo, he is a useless SJW with a mouth.

GQ forgot the worlds greatest feminist, Jihadi Justin Trudeau. I mean come on……..
Here we have a brilliant minded man?/woman?/ thing? by the name of Justin Trudeau, the same person that is going to redefine Time and Space – not to get all sciencey on anyone – the same person that can council you on camping, the same person that can teach you to smoke pot and lie about it, the same person that lets budgets balance themselves, the same person that wears such beautiful socks, the same person that is so generous that he?/she?/ it? is able to give away millions of Canadian Tax dollars to any country that asks for it and never asks for anything in return – so generous this feminist!
What the hell is the matter with GQ turning a blind eye on such a nice head of hair or is it heir? It’s an insult, I tell you – an outright insult, to such an honest, truthful, caring person that holds such a high office.
Kaepernick fffrrrtt! not fit to lick Jihadi Justin’s sock filled boots.

GQ sure isn’t going to honor a non leftist. That shrinks the list significantly. I’m sure they considered Bruce/Kateland Jenner.

For those ‘citizens’ not tuned in yet…here’s a good start.

To the point.

. . . and the GQ Magazine cover also lists Steven Colbert as one of their Stars. !!!

Kaepernick, Seeing that you’ve put your career into a death spiral,I wouldn’t suggest aviation as your next occupation.

Off Topic
Watched this Louder with Crowder episode last night, if you have this technology, I would suggest throwing it out. The other disturbing thing about this is, if you don’t press mute, it’s always listening.
There were many commercials pushing Alexa, Google’s version, Apple etc… when these products were launched, and, I said to my husband “why would anyone want to welcome spy equipment in their home?”
Amazon’s Alexa is a CRAZY SJW LIBERAL!

Clinton Romesha is definitely the real hero and well deserving ot fhe GQ cover. But we all know the left-wing controls the media, and they mock anything that normal people value, like life, liberty and duty to your country. At least Kaepernick declined to be interviewed. Reality may be setting in for him, and let’s hope he’s ashamed of his preformance, though I doubt it. He’s likely hoping to be hired in the future, and has decided that he’d better hush up or his future will be bleak.
Thanks for this story David. Our boys and girls need to know what a real hero is!
