My grandmother was a longtime San Francisco 49er’s fan, so I’ve taken no great pleasure in seeing her team’s douchebag quarterback grandstanding (ironically, by sitting) this year as he’s refused to stand during the National Anthem and make ignorant statements.
The latest of which was following the death of Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro. Kaepernick decided to praise the murderous enslaver of an entire island of people. “One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” he said.
I mean. I just…
The stupid. It hurts.
Snoop Dogg also has a problem with this latest from Kaepernick. The rapper says that at first he supported what Kaepernick was trying to do, but he’s made it more of a job to push his agenda than on playing football. Snoop Dogg said that he needed to choose to do football or be an advocate, not both.
He then went on to call the quarterback out for his hypocrisy of being so outspoken about Black Lives Matter, on the one hand, and then coming out to say how great Fidel Castro was for Cuba.
“He’s sort of kind of hypocritical in so many words because he’s pushing this, but at the same time he’s giving credit for this and this is the same abuse that (Cubans) been taking.” He went on to add, “So it makes you hypocritical to be able to speak on this topic and that topic.”
Just a bit.
Kaepernick has attempted to clarify his comments but still doesn’t seem to understand that when you’re talking about denying people the basic God-given rights of life, liberty, and property, that there are no buts.
