This is why NFL quarterback Kaepernick can’t find a job

He needs to figure out whether he wants to be an activist or a football player

(National SentinelThin blue line: Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, former head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, has faith that his one-time starter, Colin Kaepernick, will someday win championships.

“I do believe that [he’s an NFL starter], yes,” Harbaugh said Monday on The Rich Eisen Show, via NFL.com. “He’s still in his 20s and has been very successful at the NFL level as a starting quarterback. My record is well-documented that I think he will win championships before his career is finished.”

Well, we have a prediction of our own: No, he won’t.

Not only has his skills diminished, having gone from starter to the bench to unemployed after last season, nobody in the NFL wants to sign him to a new contract.

Why? Because Kaepernick has decided he’d rather be a lightning rod “social justice warrior” and cop-hater than an NFL quarterback.

Kaepernick began pissing off football fans and tens of millions of other Americans last year when, out of the blue, he decided to stop standing for the national anthem and take a knee instead in “protest” of the alleged ‘epidemic’ of cop killings of ‘innocent black men.’

Like Black Lives Matter, Kaepernick believes every time a police officer shoots and kills someone of color, it’s a racist act that otherwise would never have happened, had the suspect not been black. Crime stats and other data don’t prove that at all, but what the hell, right? When the facts don’t align with your chosen narrative, you just ignore them.

And so Kaepernick ignored them again yesterday after a jury in Minnesota – that included two blacks – refused to convict Officer Jeronimo Yanez in the Philando Castile. Yanez shot Castile seven times after he pulled him over for a broken tail light. Yanez claimed that Castile was reaching for his gun; the jurors agreed.

But not Kaepernick. He tweeted out that police officers today are no better than slave hunters from the 19th century:

So, even a jury’s decision isn’t enough to convince Mr. Quarterback-turned-factless-activist that “the system” somehow isn’t stacked against people of color.

What’s really interesting is that guys like this would not long survive in a world without police officers, a fact that appears to escape them. And neither would millions of others.

By reflexively lashing out at police officers is nothing more than supporting anarchy, period. That’s not “revolutionary” or even “civil-rights-like,” it’s just stupid.

But it’s also why this formerly talented NFL quarterback can’t find a job: Owners believe he’s too radioactive.

They’re right.

Kaepernick has every right to “protest” …. whatever, though it’d be nice if he’d at least arm himself with the facts.

But he needs to figure out whether he wants to be an activist or a football player.

He can’t be both, not in the NFL.
