Anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick is in hot water after what he said about an Iranian terrorist
Colin Kaepernick destroyed his entire NFL career with his anti-American anthem protests.
So now he is basically a full-time left-wing activist.
But he just landed in hot water after what he said about an Iranian terrorist.
After the killing of Iranian general – and terrorist – Qasem Soleimani, the Left has gone completely insane.
They claim it was an outright act of war against Iran, while ignoring that Soleimani is a known terrorist, a fact even Barack Obama acknowledged as President.
And in his response, Colin Kaepernick alleges the strike was nothing more than a racist terrorist attack committed by the United States against the “non-white world.”
Soleimani, who was commander of Iran’s Quds Force, was eliminated in a U.S. strike on Thursday. Established after the Iranian revolution in the late 1970s, the Quds Force is Iran’s chief exporter of terrorism across the Middle East and the world and is responsible for the deaths of millions of people going back decades.
Also, taken out in the U.S. strike was Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a prominent Iraqi militant aligned with Iran, also a major terrorist.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended the military strike and said that the U.S. had intelligence that Soleimani was in the process of planning a broad attack on American and Iraqi forces. The strike, Pompeo said, was meant to disrupt those plans.
But to Colin Kapernick, the strike against Iran’s exporting of terrorism was a black mark against the United States instead of an attack against terror. Indeed, the former NFL player accused America of being the terrorists.
With a pair of tweets, Kaepernick attacked the U.S. as perpetrating terror against “black and brown bodies,” adding that U.S. troops are forces of “imperialism” that are responsible for plundering the “non-white world.”
So in Kaepernick’s eyes, killing a terrorist who was planning attacks against the United States is racist.
This sort of propaganda is so outlandish, even Iran isn’t spreading it.
But to Kaepernick and his leftist allies, everything is racist. So his response shouldn’t be too surprising.
