By remaining seated during the playing of the national anthem at a preseason game last week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did more than just tick off everyday Americans; he also enraged Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
Bad move, kid.
“This idiot makes millions talking about ‘oppression’ while working for a capitalist profit entity called the NFL,” the beloved sheriff tweeted on Saturday, linking to a story about the 28-year-old NFL player and veritable teenybopper.

Clarke had a terrific point. According to MarketWatch, Kaepernick signed a six-year, $114 million contract in 2014, and is guaranteed a minimum salary of nearly $12 million this season alone. How in the world is he or any other black American oppressed?
But speaking with NFL Media last week, the 49ers quarterback claimed otherwise, complaining about the “bodies in the street” and “people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
These were references to the fatal police shootings of black suspects. Being a liberal, he apparently forgot that the vast majority of police shootings have been ruled justified. Instead he used the patently false canard of widespread police brutality to paint blacks as victims.
Congratulations, Mr. Kaepernick, because you just proved that you have exactly what it takes to work at MSNBC as a hack journalist.
You also inadvertently showed all Americans, including Sheriff David Clarke, your true colors — and man, those colors are ugly.
They showed you to be nothing more than a petty and small-minded man undeserving of the many freedoms you enjoy as a citizen of the United States of America.
They also demonstrated why watching you play on the field was a waste of time, as well as a slap in the face to everyone who has ever sacrificed his or her life on America’s behalf.
