Allen West: I Can No Longer Remain Silent on Colin Kaepernick
CNS News ^ | August 11, 2017 | Allen West

Posted on 08/13/2017 12:30:54 PM PDT by Mr. Mojo

I’ve kept my peace on this subject, but you can refer to my original comments on the issue of Colin Kaepernick from last year’s football season.

But now I hear there’s a petition of folks who are planning to boycott the NFL if Colin Kaepernick doesn’t get picked up by a football team. This is typical of the left who only operates in the world of intimidation, coercion, and violence … threats.

So now the progressive socialist left wants to coerce and intimidate a private sector business into accepting one of their chuckleheads.

Here’s the bottom line: Colin Kaepernick utilized his freedom of speech and expression — stupidly — in protest against our national anthem. That is his right, but guess what my tender cupcake leftist social justice warriors, there are consequences.

If Colin Kaepernick wants to make politicized statements he is free to do so. And NFL teams also have a freedom, not to hire him! You delusional leftists seem to believe we have to put up with your insidious proclamations and actions. We do not.

Can y’all be so intellectually challenged to believe that you get to say and do whatever you wish, and all others must accommodate and acquiesce to your whims? That is reflective of the childlike immature manner in which you live your lives. You throw a tantrum in public and expect not to get spanked.

Let me tell you how dumb this is. Most of y’all don’t even like football because it’s too violent for you. Furthermore, football isn’t about participation trophies; there are winners.

Here’s the deal; Colin Kaepernick may not have a future with the NFL, so just have ol’ Uncle George Soros hire him to be a spokesperson for some stupid progressive socialist cause. But just be advised, there are many of us red-blooded Americans who look forward to the fall and high school, college, and professional football. You leftists have pretty much screwed up everything from our healthcare to North Korea … doggone, leave football the hell alone!

I have NEVER had a job where I could say WHATEVER I wanted while I was there with no consequences.... This is not rocket science.

I love football, but I won’t watch any NFL team that hires Kaepernick.

Col. West is a true patriot. Why isn’t he in the Trump administration? Inquiring minds want to know.

The fact that the NFL does nothing to stop these black racists within the NFL says they support them.

I feel the NFL is past its prime. Like most things that have peaked, they seem to have been taken over by money and politics.

Too late, the NFL sided with the social justice warriors and lost their fan base.

The question gar remains is whether or not their is or has been collusion between NFL owners in regards to Kaepernickand or Tim Tebow.

Do either of them have the skill set to achieve in the NFL?

Sarah Palin would have been an excellent choice for Secretary of the Interior. She knows her stuff there, and as a bonus it would have driven liberals crazy to see her at cabinet meetings.

Who knows? Maybe Palin was offered a job, but turned it down.

Possibly so that they can have more impact OUTSIDE the Administration.

The owners should decide that ALL players will remain in the locker room while the National Anthem is being played. They can use the time to pray to Allah, sit on their butts, or do whatever they want....they’ll just not have a public forum.
Too bad for the decent ones who would like to stand for the anthem but their players ruined it for all of them.

That’s what the goal is, to stop the playing of the National Anthem, altogether.

The leftist loving NFL and Roger Goodell have kept me from watching their games the last 2 years or so. I also refuse to watch any game on leftist ESPN. A baseball fan, I am refusing to watch Boston at Yankees on ESPN this evening.

Col. Allen West is right on!

Anyone using a professional sports team to make their political statement should be shown the door, immediately.

I don't think they support them. But they are cowards about the matter and they are looking to protect their investments by hoping this stuff just goes away.

If you can stop J.J. Watt on a pass rush, some NFL team would support you with a several million dollars a year.

So true.

Free agency was the death knell, where players flit from one team to another, like butterflies on flowers. What's left to support, a franchise corporation? And a leftist one, at that.
