Update (1600ET): The blow back from Kaepernick’s ridiculous tweeted statement yesterday has continued today with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham blasting the former NFL player during an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo this morning…
“He’s a loser on and off the field,” Graham began, adding that Kaepernick “has no idea what the Iranian regime has done to the region. He has no idea that they have 600 American deaths as a result of IEDs made in Iran, used in Iraq.”
“It’s un-American. He’s a racist,” Graham added.
“If you’re looking for racism in America, then Mr. Kaepernick look in the mirror.”
Graham also said that Kaepernick was siding with Iran because he’s been “blinded by your hatred” towards the president.
“Your country’s not the problem. It’s the Iranians and you’re so blinded by your hatred of Trump that you can’t see the difference between who we are and who the Ayatollah is,” Graham said.
‘Pretty sad’ indeed.

Former NFL quarterback and clearly current desperate-for-attention social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick just had his ‘Rose McGowan’ moment, somehow managing to play the race-card against President Trump’s decision to assassinate Qasem Soleimani.
In a double-tweet of utter ignorance, the sports-shoe-designer gushed forth the following words on to his Twitter feed…
“America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad.
America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.
There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.”
It appears the former football player may have taken one too many shots to the head as he seems unaware that the “brown” person he is defending killed many “black and brown” people all over the world.
