Those who support Kaepernick include the NAACP, an organization that is about as relevant as bell bottoms, and some former members of the NYPD, including famous corruption fighter Frank Serpico.
Kaepernick has been struggling to find a new team willing to take an as*hol* who refuses to stand for the National Anthem in front of an NFL crowd who loves the U.S.A.
Unfortunately, NFL team owners have decided that Kaepernick is a liability and it would be a stupid business decision to hire him after last season in which he staged a one-moron protest on behalf of African-Americans and other minorities by refusing to stand for the Anthem before each week's game.
His refusal to stand is disrespectful to the country, its military and the people in the stands. And owners want butts in those seats and have every right not to keep him employed if they believe that he will cause a boycott.
His defenders supported him, however. The NAACP called for a boycott of NFL games until the moron gets an equal opportunity at making a roster for the upcoming season. But his supporters don't believe he has to agree with the wishes of whoever hires him and he can protest until the terrorists come home.
"There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career," Gerald Riggs of the Atlanta NAACP told Fox 5.
Who the hell are they to say such a thing?
Riggs threatened that if the Kaepernick doesn't get signed by somebody, whether they want him disrupting their team and business or not, "We are going to have the world's largest tailgate, and that tailgate will not go into Mercedes-Benz Stadium."[He was referring to the Atlanta Falcons' new stadium].
"We will take a knew, and we will continue to take a knee on the NFL until they act with one voice [and do was I say]," Riggs threatened.
Isn't it interesting that leftists believe they can force business owners to hire those they demand they hire?
In New York, NYPD officers and Serpico wore tee-shirts reading: "#imwithkap" during a gathering in Brooklyn.
Until identity politics no longer plays a role in all of the arguments on the left, there will always be idiots who see everything in terms of race and not ability.
Boycott Kaepernick, not the NFL.
