Colin Kaepernick just won an award that will make you sick

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?

  2. I’m not a Christian, nor a member of any of the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), nor the Baha’i faith.

    I had a secular upbringing.

    My friend Greg , a gay Catholic, influenced by his older sister Claire, a born again Christian, used to preach to me in high school about the second coming of Jesus and the Rapture, and as the ultimate Jimmy Carter fan, he first got me interested in religion and politics.

    As high school seniors, when I decided I felt uncomfortable going along with the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, Greg would say lightheartedly, “Salute the flag, commie!”

    I commented to Greg that nationalistic sayings like “God Bless America” exclude everyone else on the planet! It’s like saying, “God bless white people.”

    Does God love only some and not others?

    When I told Greg on one occasion that I would salute a United Nations flag, as more inclusive, Greg pointed out that not all nations on earth belong to the United Nations.

    “One Planet, One People… Please!” reads a Baha’i bumper sticker.

    Upon graduating from high school in 1981, however, I was slightly irked when one of the speakers referred to “Jesus Christ” during our graduation ceremonies.

    Greg understood my feelings in this regard (remember “do unto others…”?) , but said that as a Christian, he was glad the reference to Jesus Christ was included.

    In 2002, however, in the Newdow case, when the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance as Congress respecting an establishment of religion and thus violating the First Amendment, Greg and I both agreed the ruling was correct!

    Senator Tom Daschle (D- South Dakota) called the decision “nuts”, and all the members of Congress made a public display of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance with the words “under God” in protest.

    “Those hypocrites!” exclaimed Rose Evans, a pro-life Episcopalian, and editor and publisher of Harmony: Voices for a Just Future, a “consistent-ethic” periodical on the religious left.

    Rose accepted written submissions from people of all faiths and those of no faith for her periodical, including atheists like Nat Hentoff and Jen Roth, Hindu spiritual masters like Eknath Eswaran and Buddhist spiritual masters like Thich Nat Hanh and the Dalai Lama.

    Rose felt Congress should address serious concerns.

  3. Beyond nationalistic fervor, what are the ideals the flag itself represents? Freedom of speech (which includes the freedom to burn the flag), freedom of the press, freedom of religion.

    I once asked Fouad (the half-Russian and half-Indonesian study partner of my friend Chris when Chris and I were roommates in college), about his impressions of America, as Fouad and his family defected from the former Soviet Union in 1979 while Fouad was still in high school.

    Fouad spoke glowingly about the wealth and standard of living in the United States, and not a word about the ideals and political freedoms upon which this country was founded: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, etc.

    “America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense… human rights invented America.” — Jimmy Carter

    “I saw courage both in the Vietnam War and in the struggle to stop it. I learned that patriotism includes protest, not just military service.” — John Kerry

    Volitaire once said, “I might not like what you say, but I will defend your right to say it…”

    I’m a Hindu, not a Muslim, and of East Indian descent, but because of my complexion, I’ve been mistaken for being Lebanese, Iranian, Samoan — everything but East Indian.

    This was especially trying during 1979 – 81, when the Iranian hostage crisis was taking place. My brother and I were often mistaken for being Iranian, and had to face the anti-Iranian sentiments which were widespread among the American people at the time.

    The irony, of course, is that we had a secular education in the American public school system. My mom even commented at the time that Khomeini was taking Iran into the Middle Ages by mixing religion and politics.

    A few years later, in 1983, myself and a few friends whom I’d known since high school went from San Diego to Los Angeles, to visit my friend Greg at UCLA.

    We spent the weekend at Greg’s place in UCLA, and the subject of prejudice on the part of Americans came up as we talked politics.

    Greg took my side first, by bringing up the kind of hostility anyone even mistakenly perceived to be “Iranian” was forced to endure during the hostage crisis.

    A friend of Greg’s at UCLA was sympathetic, but said the Iranian students protesting in this country were indirectly “asking for” trouble and were the ones who “provoked” the kind of response they received, by deliberately shouting anti-American slogans, etc.

    He compared it to wearing a swastika in a Jewish neighborhood.

    I could see his point, and although I agree that both flag-burning and Koran-burning have a right to exist under the First Amendment, engaging in these activities is only going to elicit a hostile response.

    If not here, then in other parts of the world!

    During the Cold War, in the McCarthy era, we inadvertently curtailed freedoms in this country in the name of national security. In so doing, we became more like (at least as far as privacy and civil liberties are concerned) the totalitarian states we were supposedly at odds with!

    As Glen Greenwald points out, radical Islam hates us because of our freedoms. Stifling dissent brings this country down to the level of the terrorist states we claim to oppose.

  4. What about persons refusing to salute the flag on *religious* grounds? Should they be demonized as well?

    Journalist Rob Boston writes in his 2003 book, Why the Religious Right is Wrong About Separation of Church and State:

    “Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in earthly allegiances. Their only duty, they say, is to God. They do not participate in secular government. They will not hold office or vote in elections. Also, they steadfastly refuse to recite oaths of any kind — including the Pledge of Allegiance — or salute the flag.

    “Saluting flags, they say, is a form of idolatry.

    “In 1940 the United States was on the brink of entering World War II, and a heightened sense of patriotism ran the the population. Many states had laws mandating the reciation of the Pledge of Allegiance and flag salute every day in public schools. Children of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who refused to participate in the exercises, were frequently expelled from school or otherwise punished.

    “Although their timing could not have been worse, the Witnesses took the pledge matter into federal court in the late 1930s. In 1940 the Supreme Court issued one of its wrst church-state opinions ever and held by an 8-1 vote that a Pennsylvania law requiring recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was constitutional…

    “The High Court’s ruling..was followed by an outbreak of violence against Jehovah’s Witnessess across the country…What followed is one of the darkest and most disgraceful periods in American church-state history.

    “In Richwood, Virginia, the chief of police rounded up a group of Jehovah’s Witnesses, forced them to drink castor oil and paraded them through the streets before running them out of town. In Jackson,, Mississippi, members of a local veteran’s organization attacked a trailer park where many Witnesses were known to live and drove several from their homes.

    “The list gets worse: A Witness in Nebraska was lured away from his house and castrated by a mob. In Rockville, Maryland, local police assisted a marauding crowd that attacked a Witness church (called a Kingdom Hall) to break up a church meeting. In Kennebunk, Maine, an unruly mob charged the local Kingdom Hall and set it on fire, burning it to the ground…

    “By 1943 the Supreme Court had realized its mistake… The High Court accepted a new case dealing with mandatory flag salutes in public schools…and issued a decision strongly upholding relgious freedom…

    “Sadly, many Americans apparently do not agree with that reasoning. During the 1988 presidential race, George Bush attacked Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis because Dukakis, as governor of Massachusetts, had in 1977 vetoed a bill requiring recitation of the Pledge in the state’s public schools. Dukakis, pointing to the Barnette ruling, noted that the measure was clearly unconstitutional.

    “In the resulting furor, Bush accused Dukakis of being opposed to the Pledge, and one opinion poll showed a majority of Americans favoring mandatory recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools, even if some religious groups or individuals object.

    “Similarly, a number of states passed or tried to pass laws mandating recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance after the horrific terrorist attack of September11, 2001. In Minnesota, Govenor Jesse Ventura was criticized for vetoing one of those bills. Defending his action, Ventura pointed out that the law was clearly unconstitutional.”

  5. Theresa Lewis: I wasn’t going to respond to this story because once again Vasu is publishing one of his novels again. Why Culture Watch doesn’t block him or at least limit him is beyond me. He doesn’t belong here. But I wanted you to know I agree with you 100% . Thank you.

  6. Vasu, why do you bother to come here??? NO ONE cares about what you say. This is a CONSERVARIVE site and you know nothing at all about conservatives. Neither do you know anything about what the Bible teaches. You do not belong here at all. Please go away. You only make a fool of yourself every time you post.
    And you still have not answered my question. You pretend to have knowledge of the Bible and Christianity, so why do you not care at all that Christians in India are being persecuted for their faith? Since you are Hindu, I’m sure you know what is going on there. You seem to “know” everything else. Yet you do not care that Christians are being tortured in your country.

  7. BTW the Emmy awards program this year tied last year’s show for the lowest ratings in the award’s 71 year history.

  8. I have no patience with fools, Kapernik is a foolish spoiled creature. Mentioning creatures, what is this Vasu. I don’t have the time to write a novel on each subject, and I especially not reading one on a feed back. I agree with Theresa Lewis.

  9. Amen bj and Theresa Lewis. Kaepernick should enjoy all the fame now because it is short lived. Can’t do it in hell. The hatred he has for America and then profiting from it is pure evil. That is the democrats for you. And I agree about serena. So glad she lost. Sure not a man.

  10. Stupid stupid stupid this country IS based on a Christian philosophy and you don’t you are more than welcome to move to a country with your satanic beliefs but in this country we believe all men are created equal by God plain and simple

  11. I think that idiot Kaepernick should be booed by the fans whenever he steps on a football field anywhere. His action during the National anthem is terrible and any family that has lost a loved one in defense of our country should send him a public note telling him what an A-hole he is

  12. You, Vasu Murti And That Anti-American Named Colin Kaepernick, you both need your US Citizenship’s Canceled And DEPORTED To A Country That They Would Love You Two, And I Don’t Mean Only ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT-ALIENS!!!

  13. Vasu, if you actually did anything to help Americans to overcome racism or poverty, you would be worth listening to. But since you hate Americans, and particularly their flag, you should return to the India that you came from. Try saying the things that you say in India.

  14. Until America wakes up and stops supporting sports and hollywood, we will have these know nothing outspoken jerks. Its our fault that’s where we spend our money. I have not been to a movie or sports event in 3 years, you can have a great life without that type of entertainment.

  15. What would anyone expect from the SICK PERVERTED, HATE AMERICA LEFT WING A DINGS OF NO TALENT WANT TO BE ACTORS & ACTRESSES BUT ARE PUT IN MOVIES THAT ALL TALENT WAS NEVER INVITED.
    SPECIAL EFFECTS WOULD BE NICE TO ACTUALLY SEE THEM SO DARK NEED THE SCREEN TO BE IN BRIGHTEST TO SEE ANYTHING. SO AWARD LIKE THAT ARE A PENNY A DOZEN, ANY A HOLE NO TALENT 4TH
    String gets for being a LYING A HOLE, lefty who would sell his Mother either one OUT FOR A LEFT WING NUT ANCHOR ON MSLSD LYING MACHINE OF DUMB U KRAUTS. GERMANS
    BEST AT SLIME CORRUPTION FILLED ASK HOLES OF THE LOSER MEDIA AGENCIES LIFE

  16. Vasu is just showing his st00pidity and as for his “Secular” upbringing when he stands before God PLEADING for his hateful life and not wanting to spend eternity in hell with his satan, Good Luck with that you heathen. YOU shall REAP what you SOW vasu, remember that when you do meet with GOD almighty that you don’t have any belief or faith in. I really hope that I am there to watch your sniveling and pleading. There really is a God, you heathen! Also, YOU TALK TO DAMN MUCH. It’s s asign of an empty mind.

  17. Vasu Murti, you say that you are NOT any part of Abram = Abraham, I beg to differ, you are the irritant big mistake from Ishmael side of the family, can’t you and your kin ever STOP Killing/Wasting/Smoking/Murdering Innocent People!!!

  18. If you can’t respect the country you are from. Then it is time for you to leave. (Good luck finding a Country that will take you.) And no we don’t want you back.

  19. The man who single handedly emptied out football stadiums and still is. Have you seen the photos of stadiums this past Sunday that are half or less full? Let him have his reward. He’s still a low-life nobody.

  20. I’m hoping he can single handedly eradicate Nike as well. The purveyor of overpriced, low quality apparel and shoes, will never see my, nor my family’s business again.

  21. Our flag represents the United States of America not the rest of the world. Our pledge including “Under God” relates to this country and no other country That vasu dipstick has no clue about the United States and it’s history is he should be on the first deportation boat out of our country and the sooner the better.

  22. Vasu is probably being paid by the word by George Soros. How else would he have TIME to pontificate? Kapernick is another Soros supported demonize. Money, oseudo- fame for anything anti- Amrrican. Why? So others, who can’t be successful, will see that being anti-American is a ticket to big money. Mao Sedong, leader of the Commu ist Party once said, ” Give me your children, and I will take yourcountry”, 35 years ago communist leaning liberal teachers in infiltrated public schools/ universities, while our textbooks were scrubbed of real historical truths about America, and re-placed with anti- American pseudo rhetoric that torn into our Christian foundation. Kapernick is a prime example. Ban George Soros from this country, home-school or send your kids to a private Christian school and slowly we will take America back .. at the core.
    Get out and get the vote for Trump I. 2020. BTW, the left doesn’t hate Trump per se`. What they hate was loss of America being brought totally under their grips. They thought they had finally brought America down.. with the likes of Communist, radical Muslim loving I’ll do anything for money and power, Hillary Clinton. Obama began the landslide, and would have succeeded, had Hillary gotten into office. They are still at it. Have you heard that Google now has an algorithm to use on their social websites, that will actually influence a user to change their mind without their being aware of that happening!!! Then…the algorithm disappears..without leaving a trace!! With this, they could then pick the next president!!! Thankfully, the Gov. Is looking into Google. FB and others….along] with all the corruption in the FBI and CIA.. that under Obama, tried to take down a duly elected president. They didn’t cover their tracks bc they were doing Obama’s bidding. Corruption at bedrock.

  23. This country is not based on christian philosophy Einsten. The founding fathers were mostly deists, not theists, and not christian. Plus they were escaping a country where a state religion was forced on them. They wanted a country where people were free to worship any god they wanted and most importantly, no god at all. A country where religion and politics were kept separate. So it seems you should pack up your junk and leave. You have no idea what you are speaking of and you have most likely been lied to your whole life.

  24. Hey, Rosa Parks was not protesting buses. Ghanda was not protesting food. Kapernick was not protesting the anthem or the flag or the soldiers. So while your lazy ass is sitting on the couch drinking beer while the national anthem is playing on TV, and you are booing Kapernick for kneeling, realize you are nothing more than a ignorant racist who just wished you could lynch blacks again.

  25. Colin K did not win an award. Nike’s advertising agency won an award for producing an inspiring commercial.
    The ad tells aspiring athletes to aim high. Nothing in the ad is sickening. It’s a good ad.

    Dream Crazy won an award because it is a good ad. It did not win an award because of Colin K’s politics, but despite his politics.

  26. To the Founding Fathers, the Thirty Years War, 150 years before was NOT ancient history, but recent history. Some provinces in Germany lost more than 90% of their population as good Catholics and Protestants attested to their Christian faith by slaughtering in cold blood women and children and infants and by burning people alive in churches on Sunday mornings. That’s why the Founding Fathers were extremely distrustful of all religion, and most distrustful of Church leaders of all sorts.

  27. no He has disgraced the American symbols that so many have fought for and given their lives for. He needs to be removed from fame and deported out of country.

  28. Another athlete who has used his talent to play a game to say and do things that he really has no ability to understand he has this job because was given this talent by God, but apparently does not or want to understand that as a citizen he has a responsibility to support our President. I did not like Obama, but he was president and I accepted it because this is how we do things in our country. So many people forget WHO is really in control, certainly not a spoiled ungrateful person. No class at all.

  29. Kaepernick you are nothing more than a complete loser. You will be nothing for the rest of your pathetic life.

  30. Wow! You don’t know me. How dare you? I don’t watch football and I don’t drink beer. Wherever I am, whatever I am doing, I stand when I hear the anthem. It is very important to me. I respect my country and my flag. I have never booed Kaepernick, even though I believe that he should stand as well. I am not an ignorant racist and I would stand against anyone who tried to lynch anyone no matter what color they are. I have great respect for Rosa Parks. You cannot and should not put everyone in a box because you are just plain wrong.

  31. Colin is the new face of peaceful protests, and should be admired for his dedication. Not many people have the courage to stand up/kneel for the rights of others. Colin is an inspiration to many, and I hope he continues working on the behalf of others unlike those fake christians who do nothing to help others. This is a new America, wake up SNOWFLAKES!

  32. Don’t yell at Vacuum Murkey! As long as he sits at mommy’s computer jerking himself off, the neighborhood kids will be safe!
