Christ! I really thought I’d heard the last of Colon Krappernick! Especially after the dope
torpedoed his NFL career.
Krappernick, the former NFL quarterback who refused to stand during the playing of the
national anthem, has raised the level of his stupidity and ignorance by likening the police to
"the fugitive slave patrols."
Krappernick made his comments following the not guilty verdict in the trial of a Minnesota
police officer charged with murdering a black motorist during a traffic stop. The driver,
Philando Castile, told officer Jeronimo Yanez that he had a gun, then reached into his back
pocket. Yanez shot him 5 times.
The Philando Castile trial went on for two weeks. At the end, twelve jurors –including two
black jurors- deliberated for about 29 hours over the course of five days. At one point, the
jurors were split 10-2, in favor of acquittal. After reviewing the “culpable negligence”
evidence pertaining to the case, the two jurors eventually joined the majority.
So, two black jurors sat on the trial of a Hispanic police officer who killed a black man, and,
after hearing and re-hearing all the evidence in the case and checking it against the laws of
the land, BOTH decided that Officer Yanez was actually not guilty of any of the charges
brought against him. (Although not in official transcripts, the two black jurors apparently
decided that Officer Yanez wasn’t a “runaway slave patrolman” either !)
But hey, Colon watched a two minute Facebook video, so he certainly must know more than
The reality is that this airhead couldn’t even stop Krappernicking long enough to get into a
training camp somewhere.
This tweet of a picture of a police badge and a badge worn by agents for southern state
governments charged with hunting down fugitive slaves certainly shows why his suspended
protest crusade was nothing more than a political maneuver to soothe antsy NFL owners.
Fortunately, none of the owners took the bait – or his $16 million salary demand. The real
Colon Krappernick was always going to come out. Now he likens police officers (a huge
percentage of which are minorities and an overwhelming percentage of which are not racists)
to slave catchers.
He can bitch, moan and whine all he wants about being “misunderstood,” and take shelter in
the cover provided by a sympathetic liberal media who will tell everyone that protesting the
flag is the highest form of patriotism - but there’s no running from equating law enforcement,
an institution which has saved more lives—white and black—than any other institution in
American history, with a marauding band of slave catchers.
I guess if you're a self-anointed social justice warrior, you can spout and spew any ignorant
comparison and expect a sympathetic media to applaud you for it.
And he still wonders why no teams want him!? Millions of people wish they were as
“oppressed” as he says he is. (Krappernick thinks he's being blackballed for his political
views. Hey, Colon football is big business, and hiring a high profile quarterback - even in a
backup role - who angers thousands of fans to the point that many will boycott games, is
stupid business.) There are no consequence-free soapboxes where you can scream his
inanities without fear of punishment in the NFL.
I predict Krappernick will be eating out of a dumpster in a few years – unless he somehow
snags a jog as a political pundit on PMSNBC or the Clinton News Network.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of
people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be
revised, it needs to be dismantled! – Colon
