What We Know about Colin Kaepernick

We now know two things about Colin Kaepernick:  (1) He’s not a very good quarterback, and (2) he lies.  Back in the spotlight thanks to the George Floyd riots, Kaepernick claims “It was never about the flag.”  But in a 2016 interview, he said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

More recently, of course, Kaepernick convinced Nike to withdraw its “Betsy Ross Flag” shoe from the market because he believed it would be perceived by some people as racist.  Really?  The first American flag, designed by an obscure upholsterer from Philadelphia in 1776, is racist?

Sorry, Roger Goodell, but it has always been about the flag for Colin Kaepernick.  Why does everyone (even Boy Scout Drew Brees!) feel the necessity to lie when the truth is so obvious?  Colin Kaepernick has an absolute right not to respect the flag, but he should man up and not lie about it.

Now, stay tuned to see which groveling NFL owner sacrifices himself on the altar of wokeness and masochistically signs Colin Kaepernick.  Whoever that turns out to be, the grief he will endure as a result of agreeing to “take one for the team” will be well deserved.

 

Good Riddance

President Trump should be thrilled to know that Colin Powell, Pierre Delecto, and possibly even George W. Bush are not supporting his reelection.  After all, they are the exact kind of swamp creatures that caused 63 million people to vote for him in 2016.  Anyone who gives any credence to what these Never-Trump RINOs say or think was never going to vote for Trump anyway.

 

Which Kool-Aid Will They Drink?

Race hustler extraordinaire Spike Lee recently said that “… there are some negroes that have drunk or will drink the orange Kool-Aid that’s coming in November, but it’s a very, very small percentage.”  Maybe so, Spike … but maybe not.

I still believe that if President Trump’s campaign gurus are semi-competent, they will have him seriously engaging with black communities between now and November 3.  Just imagine a Trump rally with 50 African-Americans on stage with the president — recognizable folks like Deroy Murdock, Horace Cooper, Star Parker, and David Webb, to name but a few of the great ones.

If Trump did 15 or 20 of these events, I honestly believe he could can win between 40 and 50 percent of the black vote.  But even a 20 percent share would give him an automatic win.

In addition to lousy messaging, the only other thing that can keep Republicans from winning a majority of the black vote is that too many blacks have been drinking the Radical Left Kool-Aid for far too long, the kind served on the Democrat plantation.  If they could be persuaded to try orange Kool-Aid instead, they would never go back to the poisonous version served up by the Dirty Dems.

Wouldn’t you love to see Spike Lee’s reaction on November 4 if that actually happens?
