How does Kaepernick’s “pouty rich kid” anthem tantrum help a single African-American?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Colin Kaepernick, who plays football for the San Francisco 49ers, is going to protest America because it’s racist. So he’s not going to stand during the U.S. national anthem.

He’s 28 years old, and he will make a guaranteed minimum $11.9 million this year, although his contract could actually pay him nearly double that.

Between that and endorsement deals, he never has to work another day in his life, and neither will his kids.

By the way, 68 per cent of NFL players are black, even though blacks account for just 12 per cent of the U.S. population. The NFL is as close to a colour blind meritocracy as you get.

Now, let’s put aside for a moment the particular case of Black Lives Matter. As you saw when our reporter Lauren Southern went to Milwaukee, Black Lives Matter riots burned down houses and businesses owned by fellow blacks. How did that help anything?

There’s no doubt about the disparities in black America. Higher poverty rate. Higher crime rate — both as victims and perpetrators. Higher welfare rate. Higher rate of families with no dads around. There are a lot of problems.

But how does a black millionaire denigrating the national anthem solve any of that?

PS: Two years ago, Kaepernick was fined $11,000 by the NFL — for calling another player the N-word...

Sean Penson…have you ever thought about developing a comedy routine to go with your rabidly racist loser views? Of course, racism is the historically established practice of the left where you wallow so happily. You Alinskyites dream of destroying America because you, like Alinsky, adore Lucifer. Thankfully Trump,and the massive movement he leads,will put you people out of business for good and bring back the genius that is the IDEA called America.

Thanks for the reminder of all the white lives shed to stop slavery…it is high time Black Americans paid reparations to the descendants of those people,isn’t it? Time they thanked the nation for all their privileges that they would simply not have had their ancestors been not been enslaved by other black tribes in Africa and sold to slave traders who sent them to the only land of opportunity in the world…He should be bowing down when the national anthem is sung…what an ungrateful child…time to grow up little baby…and time to wake up and stop drinking Rev. Charlatan’s kool aid.

This jerk is a bigot, had every thing handed to him. I should think that his sponsors should give him a real down to earth talking too or pull his name out of their products. He doesn’t deserve the recognition any longer. Worth millions, spits on his duty to respect the country which gave him the opportunity to be some one – he could have just as easily been left in foster homes and never be given the the life which he has now. No this ASS has to be taught a lesson, with his back ground he could pull a lot of neglected kids to a decent life style – but no he chose to show how unpatriotic he is. In my mind he just became another BLM loser, he should not be shown any respect and turfed out of the NFL and for gotten about. WHAT A JERK.

God Bless America, a country that set Slaves free along with Britain and France. Of coarse this wouldn’t have been possible if Africans didn’t sell other Africans to the Euros in the first place.

So, Sean, whites are responsible for the vastly pollution in China? Explain that to me please. I’m sure the world needs your enlightenment. Please be quick. All knowledge will die with you.

What a worm this guy is.

1. I didn’t know this ingrate was raised by white parents – that makes him that much more detestable.
2. Sorry to say – he doesn’t look very black to me. More like an Arab. Pretty sure he’s deluded about that too.

What a scum bag.

Sean Penson, don’t be an unmitigated idiot and do some history research on world wide slavery, racism and environmental damage. China and other Asians are not exactly white.

However even the Rebel readers are unknowingly falling for the divide and conquer tactics of the NWO tyrants like Soros, Goldman Sachs, Rothchilds etc.
Kaepernick is protesting the corruption of the US government that is represented by the flag. By failing to honour the flag he is also further dividing himself and others and falling hook , line and sinker into the NWO tyrant’s end game.

Just ignore this idiot. Who the f….. cares what a football player thinks or says.

Spoiled, arrogant, entitled and smug

Says it all

I wonder who will get all the blame when the progressive idiots have all the Whites , Christians , and Jews wiped out?
commented 2016-08-31 00:27:01 -0400
Whites owe so much, for the damage done since the middle ages.

Whites are responsible for collectively destroying this planet, and all of the creatures on it.

Whites must be held to account.

That is what Ms. Clinton, President Obama, and Mr. Kaepernick are trying to do.
commented 2016-08-30 22:55:43 -0400
Obama has more contempt for America as founded than this insignificant football player could ever exhibit. It would be virtually impossible for Obama to attend services conducted by Wright for all those years and not agree with the vial tripe and anti-American sentiment and hatred for America that his sermons contained. And good buddies with Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn , the famous underground terrorists and anarchists.
So Kaepernick made an ass of himself , but as old Hillary would say “what difference does it make”. He is a nobody, soon to be a washed up talent that was more concerned about himself than his team. Teams have leaders and patriots , and he could not muster enough character on an NFL team, so it is no wonder he has no patriotic blood running in his veins for his country. Screw him and his career because he is about to become unemployed.

Lol. Too rich. In humour. Typical elitists telling what we should do

Kaepernick and Obama , should get together so y’ally can Trash the White people that raised you . Vote Hillary . That way you can be assured that your ‘People’ , the ones you know nothing about and pretend to care about -- will stay exactly where they are . You assholes are such hypocrites.

Fergeddaboudit Drew, this is a koolaid drinker – he swallowed the Jones town punch and there is no place for historic fact in the unicorn fart bubble they live in.

Ferintance – the guy who wrote the anthem Francis Scott Key, did so during a naval bombardment in the war of 1812 – a war he opposed – he also set all his slaves free and as a lawyer defended many of them in court seeking their freedom.

SJW historians don’t know anything but the feel of their palm.

Kelly thinks it is good to stand for BLM who kills and riots and is extremely racist and demands others work to support them, kind of like ummmm SLAVERY!!

Kelly Weber blacks owned slaves as well. And they enabled the slave trade.

Yeah, that’s it, he’s all about what happens in another dimension on another world at another time – now take your lithium and crawl back into your safe space at commie martyrs Junior High.

Kap is feeling guilty and does not know how to really help. Some children get attention by doing bad things.

Strange how African has come to mean Black skinned. I guess it is OK to say that Dutch are Blonde ,White skinned and maybe blue eyed. Or is is this racist? Hows about European being White skinned and Christian ?

@kelly Weber:

Maybe that privileged spoiled rich kid raised by white parents should check his racism at the door. He is the one that fined for calling another player a “n*****”.

k. w. ….you forgot to mention…….the slave owner was also a democrat. Just like the whinning rich athlete i’m sure.

This is the third article on this,must be a slow news day. Perhaps he doesn’t want to stand for an anthem written by a slave owner who celebrated the death of slaves.

A worse case of bogus vanity moral preening would be hard to find.

Hope the fans throw garbage at him in honor of the garbage coming out of his over-paid privileged mouth.

I’m a life long football fan but I gotta tell you I’m getting f’in sick of political axe grinders using pro-ball venues as a soap box for every demented political meme around. If you’re going to pimp politics, run for office, don’t play ball, it’s not why we go to a game or watch the broadcasts. If you feel like I do it’s time to go to the broadcasters, team owners and their sponsors and tell them this impromptu political preaching is annoying enough to make you turn off the game and read the results in the paper.
