Colin Kaepernick blasts NFL's woke-fest as "propaganda" and this is your daily reminder that you can never ever ever be woke enough to satisfy the mob
· Sep 14, 2020 ·

The NFL season kicked off as an absolute unmitigated woke-fest this weekend.

From the AP:

Jason Myers kicked off to start the Seahawks' season-opener against the Falcons, and the ball sailed through the end zone for a touchback. No one moved a step.

Instead, the players all dropped to one knee.

After years of pleading with the NFL to act against systemic racism, they were willing to wait another 10 seconds to make their point.

Teams opening the year in empty stadiums knelt, locked arms, raised fists in protest or stayed off the field entirely for the "Star-Spangled Banner" and the Black anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing" on Sunday as the once-reluctant league brought racial injustice to the forefront on the NFL's first full slate of games.

In Atlanta, the teams wore armbands honoring civil rights leader John Lewis and staged the most striking of the day's gestures: They barely flinched as the opening kickoff landed beyond the end line, took a knee, and remained there for about 10 seconds before trotting off the field to resume the game.

Do you think all of this was enough to satisfy Comrade Kaepernick? Of course not. Of course not.

King Kap took all the action in from a multi-million dollar mansion somewhere as one of his butlers brought him champagne and caviar and then reclined on a luxury sofa and fired off a tweet about how it was not good enough. As a matter of fact, he called it "propaganda."

The NFL's antics this weekend were so OVER-THE-TOP WOKE that I can't see how people can watch without being overwhelmed by secondhand embarrassment. But it wasn't enough. It will never be enough.

No matter what you do, you can never ever ever ever ever be woke enough to satisfy the mob.
