There’s hardly a person in America more despised by Republicans than disrespectful unemployed millionaire Colin Kaepernick. After earning GQ‘s ‘Citizen of the Year’ award, Kaepernick has just been honored by Sports Illustrated. Will Time Magazine‘s ‘Person of the Year’ be next?
Only two weeks after G.Q. honored him as its “Citizen of the Year”, Colin Kaepernick has received the Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award for his “steadfastness in the fight for social justice, for his adherence to his beliefs no matter the cost.”
This could be the second prize of the coveted triple crown of leftist bullshit with Time’s Person of the Year almost a certainty if he is able to edge out Linda Sarsour for the honor.
Cassius Clay/Ali was a very controversial figure in a different era but Kaepernick couldn’t carry his jock
From Sports Illustrated:
Colin Kaepernick made his truth known when he first decided not to stand for the national anthem. He had a lot of football left to play and a lot more money to make when he made his decision. It was late August, 2016. People who were anonymous in life had become famous in death. Philando Castile. Eric Garner. Alton Sterling. Freddie Gray. They were tragic symbols of a society that had taken a terribly wrong turn. As the anthem played ahead of the 49ers’ preseason game against the Texans, Kaepernick, San Francisco’s 28-year-old quarterback at the time, quietly took a seat on the bench.
For all those reasons—for his steadfastness in the fight for social justice, for his adherence to his beliefs no matter the cost—Colin Kaepernick is the recipient of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. Each year SI and the Ali family honor a figure who embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world. “I am proud to be able to present this to Colin for his passionate defense of social justice and civil rights for all people,” says Lonnie Ali, Muhammad’s widow. “Like Muhammad, Colin is a man who stands on his convictions with confidence and courage, undaunted by the personal sacrifices he has had to make to have his message heard. And he has used his celebrity and philanthropy to the benefit of some of our most vulnerable community members.”
Does it get more repulsive than this? Kaepernick openly disrespected America during the national anthem and walked around in shirts featuring Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. He’s a nobody! A complete ingrate unworthy of any meaningful award.
