Colin Kaepernick infuriated millions of Americans by kneeling during the National Anthem.
And the entire mainstream media made him into a hero.
But now they are running away from their support after Kaepernick just admitted he hates America.
Since his disrespectful anti-American protests during NFL games, Kaepernick has been having a tough time getting work.
He has no team to play for, as he is too toxic for anybody to pick him up.
So instead of continuing on with his football career, he is now making money through a coveted sponsorship with the shoe company Nike.
His 2018 sponsorship involved new Nike ads featuring Kaepernick, stating “Believe in something, even if it means losing everything,” along with their trademark phrase, “Just do it.”
This deal resulted in massive amounts of outrage, with patriotic Americans everywhere boycotting the shoe company.
Following all this opposition, one would think that the shoe company would consider cutting ties with the controversial figure.
But to the contrary, they continue to use his name, along with selling Kaepernick-branded merchandise.
Not only that, but they are taking his opinions very seriously.
Recently, Nike announced a new shoe featuring the American Revolutionary-era “Betsy Ross” flag with 13 stars, designating the 13 original colonies.
The patriotic shoe harkens back to the founding of the United States.
But Kaepernick is having none of that, declaring that the shoe is racist due to the flag being on it.
And unsurprisingly, Nike has caved to the demands of the former NFL star and is discontinuing the shoe.
The shoes were pulled from shelves on the store, with a Nike spokesman confirming it is due to the Revolution-era flag.
“Nike has chosen not to release the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July as it featured the old version of the American flag,” the spokeswoman said.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Kaepernick’s criticism is due to the fact that slavery was not abolished at the time that flag was flying.
This is a common belief of the left when it relates to any time in American history.
They point at whatever was wrong with the country at the time, instead of focusing on the good.
There is no country in the world with a completely clean past.
But the left refuses to acknowledge that, instead painting the United States as a uniquely evil country.
This ultimately gets to the core of the far-left.
The United States, as the founders intended, is not compatible with the extreme vision of the radical left.
They want to throw out the very freedoms the brave men who founded this country fought so hard for.
And to do that, they are working to change the way history is perceived.
Instead of seeing the founders of the United States as imperfect, but great men who made immense sacrifices to allow us to have our freedoms today, the radical left wants them to be seen as racist, genocidal maniacs.
That’s why Kaepernick is claiming the Betsy Ross flag is racist.
