Kaepernick, Still Unemployed, Takes to Bashing Thanksgiving to Remain in Spotlight

Kaepernick is currently a spokesperson for Nike who, ironically, are the progenitors of the modern systematic sweatshop business model. 

Some people just can’t get enough of the spotlight, can they?

Colin Kaepernick, a former second string NFL quarterback infamous for kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of “inequality”, has made his way back into the headlines over the course of the last few weeks thanks to a “workout” stunt gone awry.

The idea was that Kaepernick would host a training routine for NFL scouts, hoping to land himself a job within the league.  After a few media-driven snafus, it became obvious that the “workout” was merely an excuse for the former footballer to get in front of the cameras and taunt the league into hiring him, insinuating that the talent he exuded was enough to land a few tryouts, and that teams refusing to take a look at him were doing so on account of his politics.

All of that was shattered when one of the wide receivers from the event was contacted by the Cleveland Browns while Kaepernick remains unemployed.

Now, in an effort to stay on the tips of the nation’s tongue, the former 49er is jumping on the liberal bandwagon of bashing Thanksgiving.

Colin Kaepernick celebrated “Unthanksgiving Day” by ripping the “US government” for having “stolen” over a “billion acres” from indigenous people, during an annual ceremony held in San Francisco, California, Thursday.

“The US government has stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people. Thank you to my Indigenous family, I’m with you today and always,” the former 49ers quarterback wrote in a tweet Thursday afternoon…

That wasn’t all…

“It’s been 50 years since the occupation,” he said during remarks given at the event, “And that struggle has continued for that 50 years.”

Kaepernick continued:

Before that 50 years, it will continue from this point. It’s our responsibility to honor our ancestors and honor our elders by carrying on that struggle. Don’t let their sacrifices be in vain. That’s why it’s important for all of us to be here today, to show that we’re together, that we’re unified, that we have that solidarity. And I hope to spend many more of these with you.
