Despite having not suited up for an NFL football game since January 1, 2017, and being essentially named an NFL pariah, former NFL quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and anthem protester Colin Kaepernick is using his notoriety for activism. On Monday Kaepernick’s website announced a pre-order for a new football jersey his supporters will be able to purchase. The black jersey features the hashtag “#ImWithKap” on the front. The jersey is not in anyway affiliated with the NFL or any team, however, it does feature the same number 7 he wore during the short time he played with and for 49ers.
24/Sports.com reports – “The jerseys are priced at $174.99 and 20 percent of the profits from each jersey sold will go directly to Kaepernick’s ‘Know Your Rights’ campaign, which Kaepernick launched in 2016 to help educate children on ‘awareness on higher education, self-empowerment, and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.'”

Originally making headlines two years ago, Kaepernick chose to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice and police brutality against minorities. He continued to kneel throughout the season and thus began a tradition of kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games as a form of silent protest, one that was adopted by players across the league over the following two seasons. His choice to protest by kneeling has been a source of significant controversy leading to boycotts of the NFL and has been a topic of conversation ever since. Some have praised the protest as a sign of “courage.”
Others consider it a sign of complete and utter disrespect towards American military veterans both past and present, as well as police officers and first responders. Detractors claim the protest is not about veterans and police and never has been. Yet for many Americans who serve or have served and their families, it is hard to see it as anything else. When you bury your brothers and sisters at arms and are forced to deliver the American flag instead of a loved one who died in defense of the country that flag represents or forced to accept the same, the American flag and the national anthem symbolize a good deal more.
More recently and due to this controversy, Nike, which signed Kaepernick in 2011 as a spokesman, held off in using him for ad campaigns. However, Nike kept him on their roster even after Kaepernick became a free agent in 2017. Then on September 4, 2018, Nike announced that Kaepernick would be the face of its annual “Just Do It” advertisement campaign. The company also stated they planned to donate an undisclosed amount of money to Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights” organization. Nike makes the jerseys for all 32 NFL teams, however, it did not make the new “#ImWithKap” jerseys.
24/7 Sports reports – “Despite the backlash, public debate and attempts by the league to set new rules regarding player protest, Miami Dolphins wideouts Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson continued to show their support of Kaepernick and his cause by kneeling before the Dolphins-Titans Week 1 game on Sunday afternoon. Kaepernick thanked the two on social media later in the day.
“My Brothers (Kenny Stills) and (Albert Wilson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed!” he tweeted. “They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. Their courage will move the world forward!”
Stills had been taking part in the player protest for well over a year and addressed his plan to continue to kneel in a recent post-practice interview.
“There are people in this country who are saying there are issues we want to bring to light, can you help us make change. Instead of people saying, yeah, let’s do this, let’s make change, let’s make our country a better place, it’s like, no, don’t do this then, this isn’t the right place, you don’t like the police.”
However, others note Kaepernick’s one condition for selling his “special” activist jersey seems to be that while he can capitalize on the disrespect of many, his actual jersey from when he actually played football is virtually worthless to those Americans even still willing to watch the NFL.
Newsweek reports of the current backlash –
The Mississippi Department of Public Safety, the umbrella agency for the state’s highway patrol troopers and other law enforcement, will no longer purchase Nike products after the Colin Kaepernick ad campaign, according to Gov. Phil Bryant and Commissioner Marshall Fisher.
“As commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, I will not support vendors who do not support law enforcement and the military,” Fisher told Mississippi Today on Friday.
Bryant told the news outlet that he supports Fisher’s decision. “He has a right to determine what vendors DPS does business with, and it’s not going to be with a company that pays an individual who has slandered our fine men and women in law enforcement.”
This is not the first time Nike has been dropped because of this ad campaign. College of the Ozarks in Missouri decided to drop Nike apparel from its athletics department. Ben Zahn, mayor of Kenner, Louisiana also placed a ban on Nike products in the city two days after the campaign was unveiled, saying that the use of the city’s resources would no longer be used to purchase Nike products.
“Under no circumstances will any Nike product or any product with the Nike logo be purchased for use or delivery at any City of Kenner Recreation Facility,” read a memorandum that was leaked on Twitter by activist Donna Brazile. The ban has since been lifted.”
Immigrant Actress Says She’ll Leave The U.S. And Not Just Because She Hates Trump
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron has been a citizen of our great nation for more than a decade, after leaving South Africa for a better life in America. Now, she’s wanting out and nobody is stopping her, but she wants everyone to know why she’s leaving and others should high tail it out of here too. Theron has identified what she feels is an imminent threat to humanity in this country and is more than just President Donald Trump, who she’s definitely not a fan of.
The successful actress has enjoyed all the perks of being an American citizen including an incredible career. More important than her acting chops are her two black children she’s adopted. She doesn’t feel that they are safe here in the U.S. and is at least talking about leaving, but like all other anti-Trump celebs, she probably won’t make good on her announcement and actually leave. She just likes the attention of complaining about this country, this time citing a new reason.
American News Central reports:
Charlize Theron was born in South Africa during the time of apartheid. She knows what racism is like.
Theron gained American citizenship just over a decade ago, however, she’s not that proud of her country or her president.
According to Charlize, she’s considering leaving the United States because it’s just too dang racist. Her two adopted black kids shouldn’t have to live in such an evil country!
She said this during an interview with far-left nutball Chelsea Handler.
When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.
Theron sat down with her drunken leftist friend and equal foe of Trump’s as she is, to commiserate over how awful they feel that America has become. This “safe space” interview is rich with leftist insanity.
Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?
Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.
Theron’s children are among the most privileged kids in America guarded by people protecting them and likely a security wall or fence around their home. Her children are not in any danger with Trump as the president who has done nothing to make the country more racist with him in office. The only people perpetuating racism in America are liberals like her who are lying to their children and telling them that America is a racist place. Instilling fear in little ones like this is what’s really unsafe.
If Theron wants to fix a racism issue, she should look at her home country and start there. That’s where it really is dangerous, but she will just stay right here in America where it’s safe and complain about Trump for attention.
Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts
Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.
Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.
The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.
Via Capitalist Magazine:
In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.
O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”
Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”
O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”
Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”
O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”
Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”
O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”
Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”
O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”
Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.
Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.
Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.
A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine
The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
