Following the death of Iranian terrorist Quassem Soleimani, former football player Colin Kaepernick went on a racist, anti-American rant. Kaepernick accused the United States of carrying out “terrorist attacks” against brown and black people; shortly thereafter, the ex-football player also asserted that the brave men and women in the military are simply plunderers of “the non-white world.”
After publically sharing such a terrible take, Kaepernick took a lot of heat. Many Americans slammed him for defending a terrorist; others accused the newfound social justice warrior of taking such an awful stance for the sake of lining his pockets and getting brownie points for being “woke.”
During yesterday’s appearance on Fox News, GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham had some words for Colin Kaepernick as well. According to The Daily Caller News Foundation, Graham slammed Kaepernick as “racist” and consumed by hatred for President Trump.
Last week’s remarks are hardly the first time that Kaepernick has made concerning remarks about this country.
A Closer Look at Graham’s Censure of Kaepernick
During talks with Fox host Maria Bartiromo, Graham branded Kaepernick as a “loser” both on the football field and off of it as well. The conservative senator went on to explain that the former football player hasn’t a clue about the humanities crime of Iran or the countless American deaths which Iran has engendered.
Later during the segment, Graham also encouraged Kaepernick to look in the mirror if he’s truly concerned about racism. After slamming Kaepernick’s tweets as “racist” and “un-American,” Graham explained that loathing of President Trump ultimately blinds the former football player. Finally, the Republican senator wrapped up his statements by noting that Iran is the problem, not the United States.
Trump Derangement Syndrome
Sen. Graham’s statements of Kaerpenick being blinded by his own hatred of the president speak volumes and make a lot of sense. Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very common phenomenon amongst the left; they despise Trump so much that they’d rather side with a murderous terrorist than admit that the president did a good thing by taking Soleimani out.
As many people reminded Kaepernick on Twitter, America is the only country on the planet where he could make millions by playing football. Were it not for Kaepernick’s social justice warrior antics, he’d still have a job and be doing well for himself. Because of his very stunts and antics, not a football league in America will sign him…and rightfully so!
