Kaepernick Condemns Police with Slave Patrol Comparison
Colin Kaepernick was black-listed from the NFL for disrespecting the flag.
Now, we know why the quarterback can’t manage a second chance.
Let’s face it. Quaterbacks with far less-impressive stats were signed months ago. So why is Kaepernick still on the outs? Maybe it’s because he hasn’t learned when to shut his big mouth.
The First Mistake
Kaepernick offended NFL owners with his refusal to stand for the National Anthem. When he realized he was pissing off the wrong people, he tried to re-frame his act of defiance as a form of social protest. The only problem is, Kaepernick doesn’t know what oppression is. Therefore, his stance for the oppressed is unbelievable.
Further, while Kaepernick has the right to free speech, his actions aren’t free from consequence. Anyway, how hard is it to stand up for the flag that gave you a big fat football contract?
On the Outs
While everyone else was signing contracts and headed to training camps, Kaepernick’s phone didn’t ring. He even tried to go to training camp without a contract. Still, nobody invited him. So, Kaepernick started handing out suits from his closet as a desperate attempt to keep his name trending on social media.
The Final Nail
Obviously, the former quarterback would do anything to get back in the limelight. However, his latest move proves why no one will touch him. Kaepernick has failed to learn his lesson.
As The Blaze reports:
NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick came under fire this weekend after he compared American police to the fugitive slave patrols of the 19th century.
Kaepernick tweeted a picture juxtaposing a “fugitive slave patrol” badge, presumably worn by those who captured — and often killed — runaway slaves in the south, with a modern sheriff’s star inscribed with the words “police officer.”
“You can’t ignore your history,” the picture reads, “always remember who they are.”
Kaepernick added in his tweet: “A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!”

Kaepernick posted the image Friday evening after a Minnesota police officer was acquitted in the July 2016 shooting of Philando Castile.
Castile’s case was particularly controversial because his girlfriend was streaming to Facebook live after St. Anthony police office Jeronimo Yanez pulled his service pistol and fatally shot Castile seven times as her young daughter sat in the backseat of the car.
Yanez said he stopped Castile and his girlfriend because Castile fit the description of a robbery suspect, although it was later determined that Castile was not the man police were searching for.
Yanez was eventually charged with second-degree manslaughter in the shooting, but a jury of his peers, who were tasked with deciding the level of culpable negligence he demonstrated by using lethal force against Castile, cleared Yanez of all charges.
It looks like his Tweet will the final nail in Kaepernick’s coffin. His NFL career officially died.
Like most leftists, Kaepernick subscribes to Obama’s war on cops.
THIS IS WHY YOU DONT HAVE A JOB! Good luck in the CFL

Like We’ve Said Before
Five years ago Kaepernick was speculated to go down as “one of the greats.” Thus, most would have bet his free agency this year would have garnered much interest, and a juicy contract. Instead, however, he will be remembered for a great lesson the NFL can teach: “Love your country!”
Now, Kaepernick better hope he never needs to dial 911. The Slave Patrol might resist helping such a loser.
