Has-been quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in the news! Wearing a Malcolm X t-shirt, the malcontent San Francisco 49er veered way off-side logic and common sense when he weighed in on the death of Fidel Castro.
In an interview with the Miami Herald, Kaepernick praised Castro for instituting universal healthcare in Cuba and investing in the education system.
Actually, Castro provided Cubans with enough education to realize how miserable their lives were and then extended their miserable lives with universal health care. Fantastic!
Kaepernick praised Castro for supporting Nelson Mandela when he was jailed but neglected to mention that while Castro stood against racial apartheid in South Africa, he instituted economic apartheid and the beating of black dissidents in Cuba.
The Trudeaus sure know how to pick their friends!
Only Kaepernick doesn’t see if he had pulled his stunt in Cuba and criticized the Castro regime, he’d be in a Havana jail, not on the football field but he has the right to disrespect the U.S. national anthem. That’s how freedom of speech works.
So who mourns for Garret Sparks, the 23-year-old Toronto Maple Leafs farm team goalie who was suspended for violating team policy after using inappropriate language on social media.
Watch as I explain what led to Sparks suspension. Oh, the misogyny!
Can you say “double standard”? Where the hell is the ref, for crying out loud?
