Colin Kaepernick went too far with an out of control unpatriotic rant.
Even his woke supporters aren’t able to save his faltering career after this.
Colin Kaepernick said three unthinkable words that sent him over the edge.
While there has been a great deal of media attention towards North Korea’s nuclear program, not enough attention has been given to the fact that it would take Iran less than a year to become a nuclear state.
The 2015 Iranian nuclear deal gave Iran $150 billion in assets that had been frozen overseas and gave Iran $1.7 billion as a cash payment.
In return, nuclear sanctions were put in place that theoretically would keep Iran a year away from becoming a nuclear power.
Iran is dangerous.
If North Korea organized a mob to attack the American Embassy in South Korea there would be no doubt in anyone’s mind that such an intentional act of hostility couldn’t be ignored.
Yet Colin Kaepernick lost his mind because U.S. military forces killed Qasem Soleimani, who Obama’s administration labeled as a terrorist and who was behind the deaths of hundreds of American troops.
He accused the US government of launching “American terrorist attacks.”
According to The Daily Wire:
Disgraced former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick attacked the United States on Saturday for conducting what he described as racist “American terrorist attacks” driven by imperialism, which appears to be his response to U.S. military forces killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, which is a designated terrorist organization.
“There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism,” Kaepernick tweeted, adding, “America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.”
Kaepernick’s inflammatory and unsubstantiated claims drew instant backlash online.
Foreign Policy Research Institute Fellow Elizabeth Tsurkov tweeted: “Soleimani oversaw the murder, starvation, displacement, detention and torture of millions of brown Syrians and Iraqis.”
Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech tweeted: “Qassem Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans who were black and brown. cc @Nike”
It’s racist to judge people by the color of their skin and not by their actions.
Does Kaepernick think that America should only deal with Caucasian terrorists who attack our military?
America would like nothing better than to have peace and withdraw from the Middle East.
But is it worth it to withdraw and let Iran seize control of Iraq and develop nuclear weapons?
The allies in WW2 appeased Hitler because they were desperate to avoid another war.
It is costly to stand up to Iran but it may be more costly to wait to stand up until they have become a dangerous power.
Colin Kaepernick understands none of this. His greatest talent is kneeling.
Do you think that Colin Kaepernick needs to learn that not everything has to do with race?
