Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, is quickly becoming the talk of the nation. However, more people are concentrating on the man’s seating preference over the truth he spoke defending that preference.
Yes, Kaepernick chose not to stand for the national anthem. So what?
Americans are more outraged over a single NFL player’s personal decision than they are about the criminal government who rules over them.
During an interview on Sunday, Kaepernick made a powerful point which has conveniently been ignored by the media as they use this incident to tug at partisan heart strings. Hillary Clinton is a psychopath criminal, who knowingly broke the law — and she is one of the choices for president of the United States.
When asked about whether or not the election year had anything to do with his choosing to remain seated for the national anthem, Kaepernick responded:
It wasn’t a timing thing, it wasn’t something that was planned. But I think the two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issues that we have in this country right now.
He then went on to shatter the paradigm of being forced into choosing the lesser of two evils by decrying both the political candidates, making the point that Hillary Clinton is a criminal.
You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?
Kaepernick pointing out the fact that Clinton should be in prison was conveniently ignored by corporate media. This statement does not fit into the US vs, THEM, left vs. right paradigm, therefore it couldn’t be used to push a political agenda. So, the media focused on Kaepernick’s supposed ‘unpatriotic behavior’ instead.
However, as we previously noted, standing up for the national anthem does nothing to protect freedom — standing up to the tyranny of the state does! So, if anyone is being ‘unpatriotic,’ it’s those who would attempt to silence a man for speaking out against obvious oppression and corruption.
