As the start of the NFL season draws near, debate over former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel for the national anthem last year is once again heating up.
Despite the fact that Kaepernick hasn’t been signed onto a team (yet), there are many other players who claim they will continue his protest and refuse to stand for the anthem.
A comic strip has recently gone viral on Facebook pointing out the sheer hypocrisy of what Kaepernick and his ilk are doing — and it is something he undoubtedly won’t be happy to see.
The comic has two frames, the first of which shows Kaepernick talking to a reporter.
“To protest racial inequality, I refuse to stand for the national anthem,” Kaepernick stated in the comic.
In the next frame, the reporter is asking Kaepernick a question that makes his eyes bug out.
“So to protest income inequality, will you refuse to take your paycheck?” asked the reporter while Kaepernick’s eyes got wide and he looked shocked.
The image was posted on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page one day ago, and it has already racked up over 16 thousand shares.
If these social justice warriors actually cared at all about the issues they are talking about, they would do something other than literally sit on their behinds for a few minutes during a football game.
Come on, do they really think that sitting during the national anthem is actually going to accomplish anything? Kaepernick did that for almost an entire season. Does it look like anything got better!?
If these football players cared, and I mean truly cared, about the situations they claim to protest, they would do something with their millions of dollars to help out.
Instead, what they actually do is hold on to their huge salaries, then get even more publicity when they claim that the system is rigged against them — all while taking home more money in one season than most of us will make in our entire lifetimes.
