America Hating Heel Kaepernick: The Fourth Of July Is A ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’

Former NFL quarterback and America-hating heel Colin Kaepernick celebrated the Fourth Of July with a sick missive declaring that the patriotic traditional holiday is a "celebration of white supremacy."
The man who has gone from a mediocre backup who was benched for Blaine Gabbert to a messianic figure to the insurrectionists who have declared open war on America took to his Twitter account on Saturday to condemn a nation that has made him rich and famous.
With the left's fury over Hillary Clinton's 2016 election loss to a bombastic billionaire outsider whose job title is now President Trump, the unwillingness to accept the defeat and the democratic process has now spilled over into what could turn into a second civil war if the Democrats lose again in four months.
It is largely due to this rejection of over two centuries of democracy that a wretch like Kaepernick has been exalted as a transformational leader in a dumbed-down society that has little use for the peaceful approach of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
According to Kaepernick:
"Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of “independence”, while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all."
In a Twitter message Saturday, the former San Francisco 49ers player denounced the nation's 244th birthday as a “celebration of white supremacy.”
Along with a video showing images of the Ku Klux Klan, police brutality, slavery and lynchings, Kaepernick wrote: “Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”
The video's disturbing images were over a backdrop of fireworks and actor James Earl Jones reading 19th-century abolitionist Frederick Douglass’ 1852 speech, "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?"
The tweet is just the latest in a series of racially incendiary anti-American outbursts from the ex-San Francisco 49er since his national anthem kneeling, his stated fondness for the monstrous Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and hatred for the police made him too toxic for the NFL.
It's not the first time that Kaepernick has lashed out on the Fourth Of July.
In 2017 he took a trip to the African nation of Ghana and tweeted:
"How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home."
Then in 2019, he upped the ante with a repulsive tweet featuring a litany of atrocities including police violence and black people who were the victims of lynching and cynically appropriated the words of the great black American abolitionist Frederick Douglass to make his point.
It appeared to be the same video that he used in his latest racially-inflammatory tweet.
It should be noted that Kaepernick refrained from such incendiary fireworks when Barack Obama was in the White House.
His condemnation of Independence Day as a celebration of white supremacy is yet another live grenade that has been chucked into NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's bunker and with him having appealed to teams to give Kaepernick a job, it underscores the huge public relations problem looming only two months until the season opener.
Any further appeasement of Kaepernick by Goodell will send a message that the NFL which was not that long ago one of the nation's most patriotic institutions has turned on millions of fans who it is now suggesting that they are racists.
The mob will be anxiously awaiting Goodell's next move on Kaepernick and after the unprecedented idea to feature a national anthem for black people before the one for the alleged white supremacist Star-Spangled Banner, he is just one bad move away from the permanent alienation of tens of millions of fans.
