Amidst the fury over the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem – the heated arguments about Trump, the fecklessness of league officials – we as Americans have forgotten something important that goes to the heart of the issue and should unite us all: Colin Kaepernick is a jerk.
But now, Valerie Richardson writing in The Washington Times, reminds us just how repulsive Kaepernick’s views really are. The erstwhile QB and communist dictator enthusiast has a self-named foundation formed in 2016 to grant $1 million to “organizations working in oppressed communities.”
“So far,” according to Richardson, “he has given $900,000 to 31 organizations.” Those include Meals on Wheels, as well as groups with all the lefty preoccupations: “abortion, climate change, criminal justice reform and immigration.” (Aborion? Nothing says "black lives matter" like killing black infants.)
One of the more noteworthy of them is, Richardson explains, “Assata’s Daughters, a Chicago ‘direct action’ resistance organization honoring Assata Shakur, who escaped prison and fled to Cuba after being found guilty in the 1973 murder of Officer Werner Foerster.” Yep, a group founded in honor of a cop-killer. That must be where he got his fetching cop-pig socks. Assata’s Daughters must give them away like PBS tote bags during pledge drives.
The grant includes $2,500 for CopWatch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police, and $15,000 for teen training, part of the group’s commitment to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.”
It’s hard to imagine a worthier cause than inculcating the black queer feminist tradition in a 4-year-old.
The left has been hailing Colin Kaepernick as a hero – which goes to show how morally bankrupt they are. Heroes don’t honor convicted cop-killers. Kaepernick is nothing but a jerk, with too much money and, thankfully, too much time on his hands.
