In response to the appropriate, and precisely targeted drone strike against Iran’s terror chieftain Qasem Soleimani, the former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick unleashed a singularly loathsome tweet. “There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism,” the self-styled human rights activist declared.

Apologists for Kaepernick defended his dishonor to the national anthem as an example of patriotic dissent but his latest eruption exposes him as an America-hating fool. This tweet itself is racist.

General Soleimani was directly responsible for the death of at least 600 US troops—including black and brown soldiers, of course. Killing General Suleimani while he perfected plans to kill more Americans was hardly a demonstration of “imperialism” but rather an act of self-defense that bears no connection to Kaepernick’s race-based screed.

If the Nike company and other corporate sponsors continue to support Kaepernick’s hateful extremism then sane consumers should seek alternate sources for over-priced footwear.
