Army veteran: Cop-bashing, America-hating Kaepernick compares the NFL draft to slavery


He hasn’t made news in a few days, so of course it is time for him to start making an appearance to try to create relevance.

In his Netflix special, former NFL quarterback and documented cop-hater, Colin Kaepernick has said something that makes you scratch your head wonder if he just says stuff for the fun of saying stuff.

He called the NFL Draft process a situation similar to slavery. 

Neither Kaepernick nor his asinine comments are strangers to the pages of Law Enforcement Today.

We have been covering drivel that comes out of this dude since just before he showed up at practice wearing socks that depicted cops as pigs. You know, back when there was still a team in football willing to pay him to come to “work”.

He protests our flag and anthem. We shared our thoughts.

While others say that kneeling isn’t about the flag, Kaep says it has always been about the flag. 

Sorry, JJ. Even Colin admits…that is exactly what it is about. 

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” said Kaepernick. “How can you stand for the national anthem of a nation that preaches and propagates, ‘freedom and justice for all,’ that is so unjust to so many of the people living there?”

His American-hating, flag-bashing, race baiting tirades didn’t end there. 

He called the 4th of July a racist celebration. We covered it. 

He also said that the Betsy Ross flag was racist. We covered it. 

He outright advocated for the release of a convicted cop killer. Check.

Ben & Jerry’s made an ice cream flavor centered around Kaep. We might have asked our readers to avoid that particular flavor, but, as the ice cream giant had already identified themselves as anti-law enforcement, we knew that would have been preaching to the choir.

We wrote about it anyway. 

There is no lack of material to glean from. It is almost as though he is trying to outdo himself on just how stupid he can appear. 

Case in point: 

But, it’s this last one might be hard to top. 

He actually said, “What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic. Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respect. No dignity left intact.”

The video shows actors portraying players at the combine morphing into slaves as a white slave owners (symbolic of the NFL team owners, apparently) bid on them, whipping them.

“Look at this here! Come on! Who wants this?” the auctioneer shouts.

Woah, hold on just a minute there Colin. 

I struggle to find the words to respond with. 

But, a former NFL player, who also happens to be black, had something to say. 

This same process, that he now puts beside slavery, is the same process that garnered him a $5M contract, with $3.8M of that guaranteed. 

While I do not have a history book in front of me…I dare say we cannot find a single account of slaves being paid well enough (or at all) to be financial set for life. 

The game that removed all his dignity is one he still wants to be a part of. This just might be the epitome of irony.

Keep in mind, earlier in October, Kaepernick expressed an interest in playing again. 

Don’t forget, he is being victimized by all 32 team owners. But he still hopes to find one of those slave owners to come calling. 

“Absolutely. I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I’m prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again. That’s not something I will ever let go of, regardless of the actions of 32 teams and their partners to deny me employment.

The same way I was persistent in high school is the same way I’m gonna be persistent here. And you’re gonna have to continue to deny me and do so in a public way. And you’re gonna expose yourself by that, but it won’t be because I’m not ready or not prepared.”

Hmmm…maybe he hasn’t stopped to consider that no one wants him because he is toxic to the team mentality. Maybe, just maybe, no one wants him because he isn’t talented enough to offset all the crazy.

Nope. According to old #7, the only reason he isn’t currently playing is because 32 wealthy people refuse to allow him to work.

I am right there with you Kaep. I am prepared to be the general manager of any NFL team with an opening.

I know I am qualified, as I have won my fantasy football league multiple times. The only reason I don’t have a job making several million dollars a year is because of all the rich, old owners that are refuse me that opportunity. 

Meanwhile, the NFL Draft makes millionaires out of more than 100 players every year. Those players volunteer to be a part of the process, all hoping to get that contract that allows them to buy their mom a house as their way of thanking them for always being there. 

But, in case any of us have forgotten, Kaep actually got the NFL to hold an audition day for him, as he tried to get back into the league. Twenty-five teams sent people down to watch the “pro-day.” And then it went south when he refused to show up for it. 

ESPN personality summed it up best: 

“Twenty-five teams show up in Georgia at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility — a state of the art facility with NFL personnel, equipment, video, everything — and what does Colin Kaepernick do? Colin Kaepernick wants to change the venue,” Smith said. “He don’t want to play! He wants to be a martyr.”

Kaepernick kept coaches and scouts waiting, then sent a message. If you wanted to see him work out, you would have to drive to a high school an hour away. 

The handful that showed up to see him were met by Kaepernick wearing a Kunta Kinte shirt. 

Larry Elder tweeted about that…bringing us full circle back to what Kaepernick talked about during his Netflix special. 

Outkick’s Clay Travis closes it out rather succinctly: 

“Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery. Anyone still defending this imbecile lacks a functional brain.”
