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.”
Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
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 with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
Should President Trump shut the border down now with no more warnings about it or delay?

“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.

Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
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.
