Fair disclosure: I do not follow profe$$ional $ports.
- I will not go into a litany of the reasons why here, and will just say that I have better, and far more entertaining, uses for my time and money.
That said, it was impossible to 'miss' the faux pepileptic fits in what passes for American media today over SF 49er's QB Kaepernick refusing to stand for the pre-game national anthem as it was being played.
- In the aftermath it appears that he felt it was an "oppressive" song. That's what has been widely reported anyway. [Translation: He was offended]
I'm not at all sure if the following details are being 'reported' at all, since I do not get my 'news' from an American media which is focused laser-like on what I am 'supposed' to think instead of informing me of pertinent 'facts' so I can decide what to think for myself, but I begin to digress and to rant here. Here are some interesting details:
- Kaepernick converted to Islam during the pre-season.
- He is engaged to a BLM supporter, Nessa Diab.
In the context of the legless Marine in the last attachment...who managed to stand...it's MY opinion that both Kaepernick and Diab now number among the growing sea of UNWIPED-ASSES that threatens to move civilization "forward" to the dark ages. [Translation: I am offended]
