Sports Illustrated Grants Award to Colin Kaepernick for Disrespecting National Anthem

Sports Illustrated has followed GQ down the rabbit hole of radical leftism by granting an award to the bitterly anti-American former football player who set in motion the ongoing collapse of the NFL, Colin Kaepernick:

The [washed-up, unsigned] quarterback has received the 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, an honor awarded annually to athletes who demonstrate “the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy” and who use “sports as a platform for changing the world.”

“There will never be another Ali, but few athletes have followed his example as fully as Colin Kaepernick,” said SI Executive Editor Stephen Cannella.

As disgusting as it is that a radical like Kaepernick is bestowed awards for injecting ultra-left politics into football, Cannella is correct. Kaepernick has followed Ali’s lead by delighting the leftist sports media with his race-based hatred of America.

Ali was a draft dodger during the Vietnam War. He explained why he refused to serve:

“My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father…”

No one raped and killed his mother and father. Both died of heart failure at age 77.

Ali is not revered despite having been a skunk; he is revered because he was a skunk — just like Colin Kaepernick.

In bestowing the honor, Sports Illustrated praised Kaepernick’s “steadfastness in the fight for social justice” and his “adherence to his beliefs no matter the cost.”

Please. The has-been Kaepernick has said he would stand for the national anthem that he hates so much if only someone would sign him.

The article noted that both Ali and Kaepernick “sacrificed for the greater good at a time when many Americans could not see it was a greater good.”

If only we were as wise as obnoxious cretins like Ali and Kaepernick, and the still more detestable moonbats running Sports Illustrated, we would understand that noisily despising America serves the “greater good.”

If you have a Sports Illustrated subscription, you might want to cancel it for the sake of your self-respect.
