When Colin Kaepernick first started the disgusting trend of protesting our national anthem, not many people thought it would catch on. Unfortunately, we underestimated how brainwashed the liberals are in this country, because the trend quickly spread throughout the whole NFL.
The protests, which Kaepernick claims is to protest “racial inequality,” involve him kneeling during the national anthem and refusing to put his hand over his heart. This sick trend does nothing at all to fight this supposed “racial inequality,” but does everything to disrespect our veterans and our flag.
Time and time again, liberal mainstream culture has shown us how little they care about our troops, our tradition, and our country—so it should come as no surprise that GQ just named Colin Kaepernick, chief flag-protester in staff, the “man of the year.” Actually, the term is “Citizen of the Year,” because GQ doesn’t want to be accused of favoring gender, apparently.
In their fluff piece, they try to portray him as a “rippling superhero” who’s a “powerful symbol of activism and resistance,” but conservatives know the truth. Kaepernick is nothing more than an entitled, whiny little millionaire who wants attention, and buys into the ridiculous leftist narrative of “oppression.”
Contrary to GQ’s assertion that Kaepernick is being blacklisted from the NFL because of his politics, they forget that he lost his starting job as a member of the San Francisco 49ers in 2015 because of his poor play.
Much has changed in the four years since Colin Kaepernick was last on the cover of GQ. Back then he was a rippling superhero of a quarterback on the rise. But a simple act—kneeling during the national anthem—changed everything. It cost him his job. It also transformed Colin Kaepernick into a lightning rod and a powerful symbol of activism and resistance.
Though Colin Kaepernick continues his silent protest, he agreed to collaborate with GQ on a special project for our December Men of the Year issue in an effort to, as the piece explains, “reclaim the narrative of his protest.” He helped us assemble a ten-person team of his closest confidants—including rapper J.Cole, director Ava DuVernay, activist Harry Belafonte, and Women’s March co-organizer Linda Sarsour—to speak on the subjects of activism, protest, and equality, and to offer some rare insights into Colin Kaepernick himself.
Paired with the piece are inspiring images by Martin Schoeller, who photographed Kaepernick in Harlem, intending to evoke the spirit of Muhammad Ali’s anti-Vietnam War protests in the neighborhood during the late 60s.
Kaepernick has been an outstanding supporter of “Black Lives Matter,” the far left racially based activist group which has been linked to numerous riots, deaths, and other crimes. Apparently being named “man of the year” by GQ has nothing to do with patriotism, otherwise there’s no way in hell Kaepernick would even be nominated.
Kaepernick changed the face of America forever by popularizing hatred of our flag, and with the liberal controlled mainstream media supporting him every step of the way, we’ve got a lot of ground to reclaim. Our entire country is divided into pieces, as the left continues to push their games of identity politics.
It’s up to President Donald Trump and his loyal supporters to bring back American tradition and values. We must return to the same culture that made us a success—the culture that valued freedom, justice, hard work, and religion. For without these things, we as a people are lost.
