By Duncan Smith –
Because virtually every one of our entertainment outlets is owned by Left-wing anti-American pinheads, of course streaming giant Netflix is going to produce a series on the life of that poor, downtrodden rich guy from Nike, Colin Kaepernick.
He would grow up to play in the Super Bowl and realize you never stop fighting for your dreams.
She would grow up to tell stories that matter to millions.
— Netflix (@netflix) June 29, 2020
According to Hollywood Reporter:
The six-episode series will examine Kaepernick’s adolescent life, focusing on his high school years and the acts and experiences that led him to become the activist he is today. Kaepernick will appear as himself as the narrator of the series, which will cast an actor to play the younger version of the star quarterback.
Kaepernick in 2016 protested racial injustice, police brutality and systematic oppression when he kneeled during the national anthem ahead of a San Francisco 49ers game. His act of protest was, at the time, considered polarizing with both NFL officials and fans, eventually drawing the ire of President Trump, who urged team owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem. Kaepernick became a free agent in 2017 and filed a lawsuit against the NFL and its owners, alleging that they colluded to keep him out of the league. He remains a free agent.
Poor ‘Cap.’ Life has treated him so badly.
Well, this pathetic effort by Netflix deserves a history lesson, and for that we turn to the Washington Examiner, writing in January:
On Saturday, Kaepernick’s former team, the San Francisco 49ers, will be hosting the Minnesota Vikings as the top seed in the NFC. And there’s a reason why Kaepernick is spending his time pumping out bad takes on Twitter rather than preparing for the playoffs. But it is not the reason you’ve been given by him, Nike, or his publicists in the media.
Kaepernick is not just watching football on TV because he knelt during the national anthem or because he’s black or because he compares police officers to pigs and reveres Fidel Castro. Such opinions surely would not have offended the fan base in San Francisco. The reality is that he lost his starting job because he wasn’t good enough.
In 2015, well before his anthem protest, Kaepernick lost his starting job and then missed the final months of the season due to a shoulder injury. He went into 2016 having undergone three surgeries and was at a disadvantage to win back his starting job. When given an opportunity during the preseason game at which he first sat during the national anthem, Kaepernick had a lackluster outing, having completed just two of six passes for 14 yards, leading the offense to just one first down in a quarter. Before the anthem controversy became national news, sports reporters did not think he could legitimately win the starting job. During the middle of the 2016 regular season, after the protests started, Kaepernick was given an opportunity to start. He went 1-10 as a starter and fumbled nine times.
In 2017, new coach Kyle Shanahan simply said Kaepernick’s skills didn’t fit the new offensive scheme the 49ers would use. Kaepernick opted out of his contract and chose to become a free agent. Yet, instead of showing a willingness to be a backup on financial terms that reflected his value, Kaepernick was reportedly seeking between $9 million and $10 million, as well as a chance to compete for the starting job.
If Kaepernick were really good, teams would have signed him because they want to win.
