The virtue signaler has been bamboozled by second-hand virtue signaling! While Kaepernick has been a king complainer, draped in a veil of social justice of course, it seems that only the media is interested in dealing with him.
I guess outwardly expressing how anti-American you are, while the American people are the ones contributing to your success, isn’t as woke of a fad as Kaepernick was initially led to believe.
Sucks to suck.
According to a source to Pro Football Talk, no one has contacted Colin Kaepernick’s agents about signing their client to an NFL contract.
“Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there was some “fake” interest expressed immediately after Floyd’s death, seemingly out of guilt,” Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio writes.
“There has been zero interest expressed as to Kaepernick ‘in months.’
“At one point along the way, NFL Media reported that teams had contacted ‘friends and associates’ of Kaepernick, and that they would be contacting his agent when they “get to the point where they’re confident enough that they think they can work out a contract.”
So either they never got to the point of confidence that they can work out a contract, or it was all just more bullshit.”
While attracting attention does in fact help the views, which corresponds to monetary gain in some shape or form, there’s also the wrong kind of attention that no one wants to even put up with.
To me, it’s synonymous to the girls who post their boobs and butt on Instagram for free… one after another, every single day… and you think to yourself, “alright, alright, we get it, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen all you’re capable of.”
Nike can, by all means, be proud to have Kaepernick on their side. They can collectively post their tweets expressing their anti-Americanism on all the corresponding holidays to do so (such as the Fourth of July and Labor Day), while encouraging Americans to buy their merchandise.
… merchandise I can’t promise I’ll stay away from, BUT, if it has Kaepernick’s name on it, I’m gonna take a hard PASS. I don’t need my freaking workout gear to be politicized too. The year 2020 hasn’t given the public very many breaks from politics as it is.
It’s probably best that Kaepernick throws in the metaphorical towel for his football career and he can go out as a Nike confidant, as opposed to some washed up social justice warrior with a bad ACL. They pretty much amount to the same damn thing anyways.
