Kaepernick, Nike, and Islam

In regard to this new Nike situation…

So, here’s a question for you. Why in the hell would anyone in the Middle East care what happens with the NFL? Why would they care what happens with any American clothing company, such as Nike?Why would Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, A known enemy to the United States, tweet out his concern for Colin Kaepernick?

Maybe it’s because Colin Kaepernick hangs out with people who are enemies to this country.

Do you know who Linda Sarsour is? She is someone who has hijacked the modern feminist movement to attempt to show women just how feminist it is to wear a hijab. Now, anyone who has done any amount of research should know what a woman does with her hijab in the Middle East when the radical Islamic government has been ousted. If you don’t know, they take them off immediately and burn them. They know that the hijab is the ultimate symbol of misogyny, barbarism, and the exact opposite of feminism.

Linda Sarsour is attempting to do to America what is being done to Europe. Linda Sarsour is attempting to bring Islam into power in the United States. If that happens, women are going to be subjugated, and put below the level of household pets.

So, what’s the connection here? Colin Kaepernick hangs out with Linda Sarsour. They are good friends. Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend is a known and prolific racist, and is deeply against the America that we have known all these decades.

Linda Sarsour is closely connected with CAIR, An organization that seeks to make America “understand” Islam far more then it wants Islam to understand America.

Islam is a religion that will murder you if you draw a picture of the prophet Muhammad.

Islam is a religion that seeks to spread across the world and see every other religion eliminated.

Islam is a religion that allows a woman to be raped and the man to go free, because the woman did not have four other witnesses to speak up for her.

Islam is a religion that just passed a law today to allow people to be jailed for five years for religious satire.

Proponents of the Islamic religion continue to tell Americans and Europeans that Islam is a religion of peace. Their words when they think they are only speaking to each other or when they feel comfortable suggest otherwise.

First, we will look at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s tweet.

Let’s continue by looking at a picture of Colin Kaepernick feeling very close to Linda Sarsour. Pictured is also his racist girlfriend.

Let’s go ahead and take a look at a tweet from a Pakistani pop singer and see how comfortable someone so famous is with a certain type of mindset.

People of America: Islam is not your friend. Islam will kill you or subjugate you given the chance.

GQ And Kap: A Minstrel Show.

So, GQ magazine has decided to name Collin Kaepernick their Citizen of The Year. I can understand why they would want to do that. Their sales figures are in the crapper compared to what they should be and what they have been in the past. They have no cultural relevance anymore. Grabbing a bit of controversy will get them some much-needed attention, and sell a few million issues. That being said, is it really GQ magazine’s place to be doing something like this? This is a deeply disingenuous action on their part.

It Gets The People Going

Colin Kaepernick has been a source of controversy since he began taking a knee during the national anthem at the beginning of each NFL football game. His reason for doing it was to protest the high number of black people being shot by cops. Years of FBI statistics and data will show that there is not a high number of black people being shot by cops, and in fact it is more likely that a white person will be shot by a cop then a black person. Statistically speaking, of course. That being said, Colin’s next move, after not being rehired in the NFL, was to attempt to sue his way into a job. That has, as yet, proved fruitless. And rightly so. His penchant for creating controversy, however, has not appeared to die down. From his racist girlfriend’s tweets to his friendship with the venomous Linda Sarsour, to advocating for the regime in Cuba, to applauding Marxist thug Che Guevara, to declaring American police officers are “pigs”, to supporting convicted terrorist Assata Shakur, to going 1-10 as a starter in 2016, and going 2-6 as a starter in 2015, he shows his proclivity towards being both controversial and relatively useless.

It seems an odd choice then, with so many better people on this planet such as Tom Hanks or Gary Sinise, or Larry Elder or a plethora of other more qualified individuals, that they would pick Colin Kaepernick as their Citizen of The Year.

The Minstrel Show

That is, until you realize, that while simply not liking Colin Kaepernick is, these days, considered an act of racism, parading him around as an Al Jolson-esque minstrel to get attention is not. The only reason GQ magazine or any other publication would want to put Colin Kaepernick in their front line would be simply for attention, which GQ desperately needs.

To further this, I’d like to do a little experiment. Let’s go ahead and Google GQ magazine’s key board members, and then go to images.

Interesting.

Even in group photos, where people are milling about in the background, not a single black person can be seen. It’s an interesting contrast to the virtue signaling that they are doing with their Citizen of The Year issue.

The Closer

I’m going to close this article abruptly, saying this: pay attention to what people are doing, not what they are saying. It has been my experience in the past few years to see and make a note of the fact that when people are virtue signaling, it is by and large and immediate sign that they are guilty of what they are talking about. It’s like the girlfriend who constantly accuses you of cheating, because she herself is cheating.

Don’t believe the hype.

I’m not with Kap, Part 2: Leave Your Baggage at Home.

Colin Kaepernick is reportedly hiring a lawyer and turning toward litigation as a way to try to get his job back with the NFL. In other words, America is being forced to watch a rich spoiled brat grandstand about and force a company to act against its own best interest.

I’m going to tell you a story. When I was a little bit younger and a lot more foolish, I was at work one night, and I and my colleagues were bored. We started trading jokes back-and-forth as any group of people with any amount of sense does. It all went downhill, however, when I decided to up the ante. I proceeded to jump up onto the desk of the officer in charge. Now, I didn’t hear anything about it after that, except that it was an occasionally funny anecdote shared between other officers.

One day, after saving up a lot of money, and having already enrolled in college, I decided to put in my two weeks. That was all well and good, and I thought that I was leaving on good terms. A few mishaps later, I found myself looking for a job again. Well, where did I have a good reputation? Where did I have a captain who would take me back in a heartbeat? So, I applied. Turns out that my little incident came back to haunt me.

Even though it had been years, my name was on a list of people that were not eligible for rehire. I have since matured quite a bit, thanks in part to that cold whiff of reality. The thing is, I don’t blame them. I had, unintentionally, made myself a liability. Someone who might make the company look bad in the future. I excepted this, like a rational adult, and moved on.

Colin Kaepernick’s recent bout of tantrums only goes to show how poor of an employee he truly was. The NFL isn’t ignoring him due to racism. They are not ignoring him due to any desire they have to see black people shot on the streets by cops. I would be willing to go out on a limb and even say that they are not ignoring him because he protested.

I will absolutely say that he is not rehireable due to the fact that he chose to act on his own agenda while on the clock at work. I say that because that’s what happens to any person who has a job with any company. If you work at Walmart as a cashier and choose to take a knee instead of helping a customer, you’re probably not going to get rehired.

But that’s normal folk, right?

Colin, being the rich spoiled brat that he is, gets to flout the rules, and be his own boss.

And, this is the crux of the problem, isn’t it? The rich have gotten away with so much for so long, that the millennial generation, having watched this for decades, now feels that they are equally as entitled.

Whether it be pulling your parents in for job interviews, or simply hiring a lawyer to try and sue your self back to work, it all comes down to spoiled brats feeling entitled and not willing to suffer the consequences of their own foolish actions.

Apparently, responsibility is a thing of the past.
