TIME Magazine has gone off the deep end. This week, the publication put San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on it’s list of 100 Most Influential People.
Breitbart reports that this list is comprised of 5 categories of influence, including Pioneers, Artists, and Leaders. There is an “Icon” category, and that’s where Colin Kaepernick is featured.
So all you have to do is get a Muslim girlfriend and throw a tantrum on television to get an award? Sounds about right these days when the liberal media is running the show.
In today’s political climate, you can be celebrated for being a moron – as long as you’re a leftist moron.
Calling Kaepernick an icon is like calling Kim Kardashian an activist. It’s ridiculous. He took a knee to fight against institutional racism while being paid millions of dollars as a professional athlete (in said country that oppresses people based on their race). TIME has proved they are a dying magazine with their finger so far off the pulse it’s scary.
Normal people were angered by Kaepernick’s antics and anti-American sentiments, not inspired.
Breitbart points out that even Kaepernick’s own mother criticized her son’s decision to take a knee during the national anthem, when he should have been standing in respect for those who fought and died for our nation’s freedom. “The disgruntled quarterback’s biological mother Heidi Russo criticized her son for failing to stand for the National Anthem in a pre-season game against Green Bay last August because he was protesting ‘black oppression’ in the United States.” Like he would know anything about being oppressed. The whole thing is embarrassing.
Colin looks really oppressed, doesn’t he??
If TIME wanted to highlight icons in the NFL they didn’t have to look far. There are many players who perform outreach and actually care about other people! Chicago Bears’ Brandon Marshall has a foundation for mental illness. The Tim Tebow Foundation works to spread hope and faith – and even builds playrooms in children’s hospitals.
But instead of trying to find real heroes and icons, TIME had to push their liberal agenda and praise some bitter, narcissistic, unappreciative, protester.
