Colin Kaepernick continues to be a darling of the Left.
The former NFL quarterback has become a saintly figure for his inception of the anti-American national anthem protests that spread like a virus.
Now, Kaepernick received an award that will make your stomach churn.
Colin Kaepernick has been radicalized.
Early in his career, he was a happy-go-lucky quarterback who was often chastised for being immature.
He once stirred a mini-controversy by wearing a Miami Dolphins hat when he was the starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers.
His excuse? He liked the Dolphins’ color scheme.
But once his career hit rock bottom, Kaepernick got “woke” and suddenly morphed into the greatest civil rights hero Leftists have ever seen.
He has been fêted with multiple awards, book deals, movie offers, and advertisement, opportunities, including Nike.
And now the Nike ad that featured Kaepernick just won an Emmy Award.
Fox Business reports:
The Nike commercial “Dream Crazy” won an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Commercial” at the Creative Arts Emmys Sunday night.
Kaepernick, who started in Super Bowl XLVII for the San Francisco 49ers in 2013 before struggling as opposing teams adapted to his style of play and who later lost his starting job, has become a lightning rod for controversy in recent years. He became the public face of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against social and racial injustice in America.
The commercial features Serena Williams, LeBron James and the U.S. women’s soccer team, and displays the message, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Kaepernick now runs a youth initiative called “Know Your Rights,” which was intentionally modeled after militant Black Panther education programs.
His new mentors are all civil rights-era socialists and critical race theory professors.
Critical race theory basically searches for any disparities between whites and non-whites and attributes the differences to some nebulous form of “systemic racism” that can’t be defined or quantified in any meaningful way.
Kaepernick is so popular on the Left because he’s the latest example of a useful idiot doing their bidding.
So long as he continues to hate America, he will be a superstar to the Left.
What are your thoughts? Does Kaepernick deserve all the acclaim he’s getting?
