The controversy surrounding anthem kneeling has been a hot-button issue since Colin Kaepernick started it all. It did not help when he became a liberal activist working on social justice issues. However, a recent development regarding his background has thrown a wrench in those liberal ideas he has been propagating.
Life Site News reported,
Colin Kaepernick was adopted. How can he support abortion?
“September 10, 2018 (Radiance Foundation) – What does it mean to sacrifice everything? Apparently, to a benched former NFL player and multimillionaire, it means another multi-million dollar Nike endorsement deal. Wow. That’s some real suffering.
I’m all about people exercising their First Amendment rights. I’m all about people fighting injustice. I’m all about celebrities using their expansive platforms to raise awareness about social issues.
But if none of it is rooted in the truth, it is – itself – an injustice. And that’s, tragically, what Colin Kaepernick is spreading. It’s not just his promotion of the fundamentally dishonest and racially divisive #BlackLivesMatter movement or his financial support of an organization that celebrates cop-killer (and FBI’s Most Wanted) Joanne Deborah Chesimard, aka Assata Shakur. It’s his bewildering and ironic support of a violent act of injustice that he, as an adoptee (like me), escaped.
Kaepernick helps fund radical abortion activism. He directly donated $25,000 to the extreme pro-abortion group, Center for Reproductive Rights. This is the outfit that celebrated the 40thanniversary of Roe v. Wade with a bizarre sexualized tribute to the millions killed by abortion, called “Happy 40th Anniversary, Baby”.
Kaepernick also gave $25,000 to the Lower East Side Girls Club with nearly $8,000 earmarked for travel to Detroit’s version of the radical pro-abortion Women’s March and for young girls to go to the pro-porn, anti-science Teen Vogue Summit. Just in case you haven’t picked up Teen Vogue lately, the soft porn mag heavily promotes abortion, Planned Parenthood and anal sex to teens. So, this all puts a whole different spin on “Just Do It”.
Although Kaepernick has poured his money and his time into noble causes over the years – especially those helping kids, his most recent Million-Dollar Donation Pledge didn’t give a dime to adoption advocacy organizations. He didn’t help fund any fatherhood initiatives. Fatherlessness is the primary causal factor in so many of the negative outcomes (such as increased crime, violence, incarceration rates, drug usage, school dropout rates, abuse and neglect) in urban areas – not racism.
The millions that Kaepernick makes from an endorsement deal trickle down into his radical political advocacy on Twitter, Instagram, and now through the massive media coverage of Nike’s new ad. The new viral video is actually quite beautiful. Coming from a family of fifteen, that included siblings with special needs who defied others’ low expectations, I love seeing moments of human triumph.
They’re always worth illuminating. The ad is mostly “inclusive”; it does portray only one religion, of course – Islam. A Muslim female athlete is prominently featured, but it seems obvious that Nike has its new hijabs to sell. Love when American corporations talk about fighting injustice globally, but they have no problem selling their products in oppressive regimes (whether Muslim or Communist), like Saudi Arabia and China, where corporate social justice rhetoric remains conveniently silent.
In 2016, Nike’s CEO – Mark Parker – declared in a letter to employees: “Nike has a long history of supporting the marginalized and those whose voice is not always heard.” He ended it with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. But do they matter enough to have a black individual on Nike’s executive leadership team? Hmmmm. Clearly the answer is ‘no’. Every executive pictured is white (gasp!). Guess that’s not a racial issue for Kaepernick. Can’t bite the hand that generously feeds you.
And don’t get me started on Nike’s support of the “marginalized” in its sweatshops around the globe. Many would say that marginalization, and good ole modern-day slavery, is exactly how Nike made its billions (see here, here and here).
In an attempt to further legitimize Kaepernick’s propaganda, Amnesty International recently gave the ‘Ambassador of Conscience Award’ to the #BlackLivesMatter celebrity activist. Amnesty, a Soros-funded human rights farce, has no conscience when it comes to abortion or spreading racial division.
The non-governmental organization (NGO) played a crucial role in blatantly lying to Irish voters earlier this year with its pro-abortion street activism helping lead to the country’s tragic repeal of its prolife 8thAmendment. And now, Amnesty is furthering Kaepernick’s heartbreaking compulsion to racially demonize, distort and divide.
“Racialized oppression and dehumanization are woven into the fabric of our nation,” Kaepernick opined during his Amnesty award celebration. Yes. But the beautiful thing is we’ve come so far, and that fabric has many prominent threads of justice, reconciliation and humanity woven into it. Where there is injustice, we must continue to raise our voices for the truly oppressed – not attribute every perceived or actual wrong to racism. Believing in something shouldn’t mean you have to abandon everything that’s true.
How is it that Kaepernick doesn’t see the racialized oppression and dehumanization in the eugenics-spawned abortion behemoth, Planned Parenthood, which kills 247 unarmed black lives every single day? Abortion is the leading killer in the black community. The irony is just too much as Kaepernick lists “You have the right to be alive” as point #7 in his much touted “Know Your Rights” Camp 10-point system.”
However, the Nike Corporation provides matching fits to one of the United States largest abortion chains. When Kaepernick spoke with Amnesty International he said that his love for his people serves as the fuel that motivates him. When he defined what he meant by my people, he indicated that he meant those who have black and brown skin color.
But Kaepernick had a white mother biologically and his father was black. Unfortunately, though he was given up for adoption. His adoptive parents were white who loved him, took him in, and raised him to flourish.
Kaepernick’s biological mother had him when she lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1987. She was 19 years old at the time and she went by the name Heidi Russo. Before she gave birth she separated from Kaepernick’s father.
When he was given up for adoption his adoptive parents already had two children, a son named Kyle and a daughter named Devon. After having previously lost two other children to heart defects they wanted to adopt a third.

‘First Man’ Crashes In The Box Office Following Flag Controversy
Hollywood never seems to learn. It is not smart to piss off the American people. Leftists are always wanting to rewrite history. No more supporting these types of movies.
Let them fail. They don’t deserve your money. The left hates America. It continues to show every day.
By the way, Ryan Gosling.. It was an American achievement.
From The Daily Wire:
“First Man,” the Neil Armstrong biopic about the 1969 moon landing, failed to blast off in the box office weekend following a heated controversy over director Damien Chazelle’s decision to omit the astronaut’s planting of the American flag on the lunar surface.
“The visceral historical drama got grounded in its domestic debut with $16.5 million, despite positive reviews,” The Hollywood Reporter reports. Internationally, “First Man” performed even worse, earning just $8.6 million in 22 markets. With a production price tag of $70 million plus another $50 to $100 million in marketing costs, the film could be a major loss for Universal Pictures.
Despite the poor numbers, Universal has expressed confidence the film will perform well over time after getting major boosts this coming awards season, during which it is expected to be nominated for various top prizes.
“Our core audience, adult males, don’t necessarily run out on opening weekend,” says Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution. “We’ll have a great run for weeks and months to come.”
Though critics have heaped praise upon the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 88%, audiences have been less enthusiastic. It holds just a 7.7 rating on IMDB with a B+ audience rating on CinemaScore. On Rotten Tomatoes, the audience rating was even worse at just 60%.
In fairness to Orr, his projection that “First Man” could pull in big numbers over time is not without precedent. Both “Bridge of Spies” and “Argo” debuted to dismal box office receipts but went on to gross well past the $150 million mark during awards season. The big BUT to that, however, is that none of those films were dogged by the same controversy “First Man” stepped into the moment its star Ryan Gosling said the American flag planting was intentionally omitted.
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling said of the decision.
After hearing of this, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, blasted the film, prompting a fierce backlash. Since no evidence currently exists that the controversy is spurring the bad performance, time will tell if the critical success of “First Man” will propel it to financial success.”

Clooney Claims Trump Says To Fear Muslims & Strong Women, Instantly Regrets It
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year and a half with him in the White House. The loudest of the shrieking libs are Hollywood celebrities, actor George Clooney being one of the worst.
Clooney is a major advocate for Muslims and Islamic Americans, which is probably why he married one. He’s held his tongue recently, but has just resurfaced in a massive attack on our president that didn’t pan out too well for him.
Breitbart reports the details of Clooney quickly regretting his erroneous claim that Trump says to fear Muslims and strong women:
Nothing was off the table at Variety magazine’s Power of Women luncheon held in Beverly Hills on Friday, almost exactly a year since The New York Times and The New Yorker published accounts from dozens of women alleging sexual misconduct by the once-powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. In his remarks before attendees, actor and immigration activist George Clooney admonished what he called the Trump administration’s culture of fear.
George Clooney, who announced himself to a packed ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Beverly Hills as “Amal’s husband,” quickly struck a serious tone, accusing the President Donald Trump of using fear to divide Americans.
“Fear of Muslims. Fear of immigrants. Fear of minorities. Fear of strong women,” George Clooney began. “And because our government needs us to be afraid, the question is, are we really scared of all the things that actually make America great? And if the answer is yes, then we’ll have history to answer to. Because these are the ideas that will define us for generations.”
“After all the jokes, and insults, and reality show frenzy, what will be remembered, what will stand the test of time is holding responsible these wolves in wolves’ clothing,” Clooney continued.
“When you call an entire religion your enemy, you might very well make an enemy out of an entire religion. When you tell a whole race of people that you value them less, you can’t be surprised when they question your values,” the Ocean’s Eleven star added. “When you tell women that coming forward to testify about their abuse is a joke, don’t be shocked when they’re standing on your lawn, laughing on Nov. 7.”
In addition to criticizing the Trump administration, the actor lavished praise on anti-2nd Amendment activist and March for Our Lives leader Emma Gonzalez. “She made us listen to her heart,” he said. “A heart that believes that we as a country can be so much better. A heart that called for adults to act like adults so children don’t have to.”
Gonazelz, wiping away tears, said to the women in her own speech: “You know that you are forces to be reckoned with. You can and have inspired peace and understanding and most importantly right now, you can inspire your audience to vote. Now more than ever, women need to continue to rise up.”
In a commanding 15-minute speech, actress Natalie Portman addressed the underrepresented women in all industries and laid out guidelines to incite change, such as donating to Time’s Up, opting against depicting violence against women in films, and hiring women for positions they’re not typically considered for. She was being recognized for her humanitarian efforts in co-founding Time’s Up, a legal defense fund that was created following the rise of the #MeToo movement to address and combat inequality in the workplace.
“Be embarrassed if everyone in your workplace looks like you,” Portman said.
Portman said Weinstein is “still free” because “our culture protects the perpetrators of sexual violence, not its victims.” She added that the Time’s Up defense fund has served more than 3,500 people from “workers at McDonald’s to prison guards to military personnel to women in our own industry who have faced gender-based harassment, coercion and assault.”
The event, presented by Lifetime, with sponsors such as Audi, Morocco Oil, and The Venetian Resort, honored Tiffany Haddish, who spoke about the non-profit The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company and Participant Media CEO David Linde for helping to make female-focused films from Roma to RBG.
