    I appreciate the freedom to observe or not observe the National Anthem, I guess. It's a "free" country. It's his reason that rubs me the wrong way. You guys check it out and give your thoughts please. I really wonder if he would get a free pass if his reason would have been he's opposed to this country being controlled by anti-Christian Jewish power structures. Ya think team ownership and League officials would give him the free pass he's getting?

    I'd tend to not stand or at the very least, not say " indivisible" during the pledge, but his reason is BS. Of course, that doesn't mean much today, especially with his skin tone. Try it when White, boy.

    He is full of shi*. He can only make millions by playing a child's game because of the civilization and system that White people have created. He has a life of leisure because of this system. And yet he can only bitch and whine about how unfair White people are to "people of color". He bites the hand that feeds him. He's all about Entitlement, just like most non-Whites who enjoy the benefits of White societies they live in yet can only whine and cry about everything.

    That level of ingratitude by a black man getting millions to play a sport along with hundreds of other black men is incomprehensible by the average white person. The fact that there will be no high level expressions of disgust is another reason his attitude is beyond belief.

    Speaking of ingratitude, I saw this in a John Derbyshire article:

    Look: Next year is the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 black riots in Detroit, Newark, and, yes, Milwaukee.

    Fifty years—two entire human generations—and still they riot. Fifty years of fretting and fussing, of nagging and shaming, of affirmative action and contracting set-asides; fifty years of jobs programs, food programs, billion-dollar overhauls of school systems. Fifty years of pushing role models, black doctors and detectives in movies and TV, black athletes as culture heroes, black actors playing God. Fifty years of Martin Luther King Days, Black History Months, and Kwanzaas. Fifty years of black mayors, black police chiefs, black Attorneys General, a black President…And still they riot.

    Much ado about nothing really. When I'm at a ballgame I stand and take my hat off because everyone else does.

    When I'm home watching it on TV I mute the sound and find something to do.

    When did they start playing the anthem before sporting events anyway and when did it become obligatory? They're wearing it out.

    And does Kappernick know the stats on black on black murder and black on white murder compared to white on black murder? Just like so many other blacks. They really do show signs of being from a pre-logical pre-literate culture.

    He's had his day as a starting QB. Maybe an okay back-up is his ceiling now.

    And they could retire that Gary Glitter song for a while too.

    I remember reading where the SSB tradition started during WW1, but until WW2 was confined to important events like baseball's opening day, the WS, the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500, etc. During WW2 it became common to play the SSB before every event, as PA systems had become commonplace by then. OTOH does the UK still confine "God Save the Queen" to the FA Cup final, the Epsom Derby, etc.?

    Colin Kaepernick told reporters Sunday that he will "continue to sit" during pre-game National Anthems.

    This assumes Kaepernick is on an NFL roster this season, and attending games at all. While it is certainly within his rights to sit when the National Anthem is played, it has caused a P.R. nightmare in San Francisco and will remain one for as long as Kaepernick is showing up on Sundays. Other teams likely now view him as toxic. It's no secret Kaepernick is disliked by teammates, even prior to the National Anthem thing. Combined with his poor play, Kaepernick's protestation could become a career-threatening decision.

    That would be nice if we could be rid of this arrogant, imbecilic, black supremacist turd. Another run first quotaback, crashing and burning at light speed, due to physical regression and mental deficiencies.

    Krapernick is really playing up his whole social justice warrior ******** viewpoint. Again just another brain dead idiot thinking he is part of an oppressed race when in fact it is white people under constant attack in this country.

    It must have been quite the blow to his fragile state of mind losing out to an equally athletic but paler QB in Gabbert.

    I remember how Kaepernick choked in the 2013 Super Bowl. The mainstream media gave him a free pass and never criticized him.

    The MM will give him a pass for this too.

    All the rumors swirling now are that he is going to be cut. I would love that.

    It won't happen but it would be nice if this would smoke out the black racial bigots and their gimp white enablers and their jewish promoters. But then again I would like to see the BLM squeeze Bama or some other powerhouse SEC not feckless Mizzou (8% enrollment decline yoy, my area was a big feeder into Mizzou for out of staters, that Ponzi is going to hurt)

    One thing I like reading from the alt-right and I place this place in that bunch at least loosely is the nuanced responses. Let the above mentioned and the DWFs fight it out while I sit back and enjoy the spectacle.

    OT; I think the weak spot as far as we can make an impact on the caste system is the advertising the NFL seems to attract, it makes the adverts on a NASCAR broadcast downright intellectually snobbish. I'll watch a game but I absolutely will not watch any commercials, the stupid white male shtick is repulsive.

    So Karepunk's house and property need not be protected by the police anymore according to his reasoning. This guy was always an a- hole and so is Tavon Austin of the Rams .

    I've read into this further and no longer think he's a stupid guy. More ignorant and brainwashed on the subject like a typical SJW. Colin was raised from 6 weeks old by his White adopted family. He was reportedly a 4.0 student at university of Nevada. He even seemed like a good kid entering the NFL. Then something switched and he began engaging in TNB. Then yesterday I found out he's engaged to some BLM activist and converted to Islam. His sudden change makes sense now.

    Anyway here's a quote from Colin that I found interesting.

    "You have Hillary [Clinton], who has called black teens or black kids superpredators," Kaepernick said. "You have Donald Trump, who is openly racist. We have a presidential candidate [Clinton] who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn't make sense to me. If that was any other person, you'd be in prison. So what is this country really standing for?"

    He's spot on about Clinton at least.

    He is just an indoctrinated mixed lemming who now identifies as black although only being half black and raised white. It sounds like he is trying to over compensate for only being half black and make himself more legitimate by getting involved in the BLM "movement" and converting to Islam (let's not even start to discuss what muslims are doing to white people worldwide). It's totally disrespectful to his parents who raised him correctly. Like all "SJW" he is a moron who cannot see anything besides his viewpoint as the truth and therefore thinks he is oppressed. When he starts talking about black on white crime rates, the high rate of crime caused by blacks and how woefully disproportionate it is to their population, white lives and families who were victims of black on white crimes he may have my attention but that 800 lb gorilla in American society is never addressed.

    Mr. Social Justice Warrior, Kaepernick, was fined $11,000 by the NFL in 2015 because a referee heard him calling a Bears defender a "F-cking N-gger!"

    Oh, and then there was that whole rape/sexual assault accusation in 2014.

    I think a big part of this all is the fact that he has been demoted. In his mind he's a black man being discriminated against at the quarterback position. I am sure he loves to read Desi Cortez blogs. That Cortez believes every single quarterback should be black.

    Who would you rather have as the "face" of your organization?

    This entitled, permanently-angry, tattooed, monstrously-hideous black militant and locker room malcontent who was accused of rape/sexual assault and is a "Blak Livez Matta" crusader...

    Kappernick was a gimmick player who doesn't have it to last as a starting QB and I suspect he knows it by now.

    This "protest" lays in advance an excuse for when he fails.

    He can blame racism and the unjust society and so on.

    Yep! Similar to how the Gremlin behaved like a spoiled 12 year old when things weren't going his way in Washington.He also was apparently wearing anti-police socks! http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=34991

    From Radix Journal. Might be helpful if one or more commenters can give CF a plug.

    AMERICA'S ORPHANS

    by Hannibal Bateman

    Much of who we are is decided before we are born.

    We spend the rest of our lives filling in the gaps. For some it’s easier than others; you fill the gaps in with family, church, heritage or in our deracinated age, brands. Fitting in is easier for some of us than others, but as long as we stick to the script, keep our heads down and recite “all men are created equal,” we do just fine as good Americans.

    For White people, buying into American identity is easy. It’s the default setting; it’s your pre-packaged default. You’re not “White,” but American, and anyone can be an American as long as they recite the pledge of Allegiance, for then the only colors they’ll see are Red, White, and Blue. At least, that’s what so many White Americans are desperate to believe.

    White America deludes itself so much that it’s hard to know where to begin untangling the multitude of delusions. It puts its faith in institutions that have long since devoted themselves to their dispossession. Yet they cling on , born ceaselessly into the past , ever more endangered of becoming it. So they while away the hours, identifying with trivia instead of trials. Nowhere is this more evident than White America’s, and especially White American Men’s, devotion to the National Football League (NFL) and other ubiquitous “sportsball” related enthusiasms.

    CHURCH OF SUNDAY NIGHT
    Football, especially in its professional form, has come to be a crux of American identity, and more importantly, White identity. The NFL’s audience is 83 percent White and over 64 percent male, while Blacks make up more than 70 percent of its players. But players and fans alike all stand up before every game to sing the national anthem and take their oaths to America.

    The America represented by the NFL is usually nothing more than a sterile shopping mall. Just a quick look at the last Super Bowl is more than enough to confirm this. But to many of its fans, it represents something more: it is an identity. One in which America isn’t divided by black or White, but by Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys , who still come together every week to reaffirm their “American” identity at the beginning of each game. To its White fans, professional football is the outward celebration of the American creed, that all people are created equal and that the American dream as enunciated by “Dr.” King has come to pass.

    Many have likened the NFL to the gladiator games of ancient Rome.

    In some ways that’s fair, but for White America their meaning is more than that. The average White American male probably identifies more with his favorite NFL team than he ever has his race, or even his religion or family. The NFL is an outward celebration of the America he’s been told to believe in. He worships the strength of others, because he’s been told that his own strength is evil. He cheers for others because he’s been told cheering for his people is “problematic” or “oppressive”. Finally, he worships and adores some rag tag team of convicts and thugs because it’s the only avenue for an identity he has.

    We still spend Sundays in Church, only now the church comes in through our screens every Sunday night. And just as in Church, sacrilege and heresy will not be tolerated.

    MULATTO AMERICA
    Colin Kaepernick was born to a mother that didn’t want him and a father he would never know.

    He was adopted by a nice White Midwestern family from Wisconsin who lost two of their previous children. Kaepernick excelled at sports, achieving notoriety in baseball and American football. I’m sure his adopted parents were at almost every game, beaming with pride at how well their “son” was doing. In addition to his prowess on the field, Kaepernick was a “devoted Christian” who made numerous references to his “faith” and offered a mocha-shaded version of “Tebowing” after a touchdown, to Russell Moore’s delight no doubt.

    Kaepernick has probably gone his whole life trying to “fit in” and figure out who he is. Lucky for him, his athletic ability fetches top dollar in today’s America, and being a pro-athlete, especially a Black or mulatto pro-athlete, is about as close to deification as we come in secular America. But I’m sure he never really fit in with his “family” or the doughy Midwestern identity they represent. Of course, it wasn’t the only card he was dealt.

    Being a mulatto in America gives you a lot of options. Just ask Barack Obama.

    Blackness has come to be the standard of masculinity and coolness in today’s America . Her sons grow up worshipping Black athleticism while her daughters grow up lusting for it. More than that, to be Black in America is to have a grievance, to be a victim. In the Current Year there is no more powerful moral narrative than that of the victim.

    Despite being raised in White America, and achieving relative affluence, Kaepernick chooses to identify with lower class Blacks rather than the effete American elite or his slovenly White fans, who one surmises he despises. Like Barack Obama, or Roger “Too” White II in Tom Wolfe’s A Man In Full, Kaepernick has discovered the power of Blackness to shape narratives in today’s America.

    When Kaepernick refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance he wasn’t rejecting America, but attempting to claim it. Already, the usual suspects in the press are going into overdrive to defend him, to wrap his actions up as his right as an “American.” We’re already hearing the comparisons to Muhammad Ali who has gone from a pariah to a patriot in just a few decades.

    Sure, White America was shocked by Kaepernick. That’s because his refusal to salute the flag makes him take a pause from his Bud Light fueled soma-coma long enough to make him feel something. He feels an anger, though it’s misplaced. Conservative media are already crowing about how anti-American this is, or how ungrateful Kaepernick is to Our Great Country^tm.

    The truth is, Kaepernick and others like him make these demands because they can. Because they have an identity made up of more than cheap beer and chicken wings. Kaepernick’s fiancée is a member of the Black Lives Matter movement, and a vehement Black nationalist. Also, if reports are to be believed, Kaepernick has renounced his feel-good Christianity in favor of Islam.

    It’s useful to be in the rising tide of color.

    AMERICA’S ORPHANS
    Kaepernick was born as close to a blank slate as any liberal could hope for. He even got the all-American smiling happy family in the Midwest. But for him, it was not enough. The call of blood is stronger than any adopted bond. By embracing his Blackness, he has become more of who he is than he’s probably felt at any other time in his life. That’s why “losing endorsements” or other pecuniary repercussions do not matter to him as long as he has an identity.

    White Americans are in many ways orphans themselves. America is one big foster home where they bounce from surrogate family to surrogate family, hoping to find the one that will take them in. The truth is, they either gave it up or were tricked into giving it up generations ago. Today they just grope and yawp for anything that reminds them of what they had, be it star spangled beer commercials or negro athletes decked out as Captain America.

    White America is angry about Kaepernick.

    But really he’s just ahead of the curve. He’s found his tribe, and it ain’t the San Fransisco 49ers, but something more real, something based on blood.
    White Americans are willful orphans to their identity. It’s time for them to come home.

    These acts by these spoiled malcontents are a symptom of the devolving of Amerika. I am not surprised. I wonder how many more affelets will join the Toucan movement. Thanks White ppl. The sh*t is playing out before your DWF eyes in an environment you allowed to flourish.
