Colin Kaepernick is no stranger to the hot take and as you may have expected, his thoughts on the current situation with Iran are searing. Iranian General Soleimani has passed and instead of rejoicing with the rest of us, he wants to be a contrarian again. Big surprise, right?
This is just who he is and none of us should be surprised at this point. Most of us are simply happy that this evil man can no longer engage in attacks against the soldiers who are fighting for our freedoms each day. Kaepernick, on the other hand, would rather side with the enemy. He refers to the move as a form of “American imperialism”.
Terms like these are often tossed out by liberals who do not have the ability to explain their cockamamie opinions. Kaepernick is claiming that this move is actually dangerous. He believes that Black and Brown folks are only going to continue to suffer as a result of these decisions. This is the first time that we are hearing such a ridiculous opinion.
We guess you have to give credit where it is due, this is definitely a new way of thinking. Instead of viewing this as a war of terrorism, Kaepernick sees it as “imperialism”. He does not understand how difficult the president’s job is. President Trump has been tasked with keeping the nation’s citizens safe. This is not the easiest duty in the world, that is for sure.
That’s why we get annoyed when people try to downplay the efforts that have been put in. Our soldiers and our political leaders deserve support, not second guessing. Soleimani’s attacks against our country have left hundreds of soldiers dead. Did Colin stop to think about this before firing off his ill considered tweet? Of course he didn’t.
This is how liberals roll. They don’t care about facts or logic. It is all about having the hottest take possible. According to recent intelligence reports, attacks on America were imminent. If Trump had not stepped in when he did, we shudder to think of what would have happened next. No one ever stops to think about that, though.
Maybe, just maybe, the liberals should realize that there is certain information they just aren’t privy to. However, that would require taking a less selfish point of view when it comes to the rest of the world. Gen. Mark Milley says the drone strike was planned once the military became aware of the very credible threats to our country.
That doesn’t really sound like imperialism, does it? The United States embassy in Baghdad was recently attacked as well. This would certainly constitute an act of war against the nation. Soleimani was also in Iraq at the time, something that Kaepernick and his cronies failed to mention. His presence in Iraq goes against the previous agreements that were made.
American intelligence agents may not always receive the credit that they deserve but in this case? They deserve a great deal of kudos. Thanks to their efforts, they were able to pinpoint Soleimani’s location and gather the information needed to put a stop to his reign of terror. This should make all of us sleep much better at night.
Our intelligence agents are working tirelessly to make sure that they have all of the necessary information. This is not the sort of story that needs to be turned into an issue of racism but that’s Colin’s way. It’s the only way he can get attention, now that his NFL career is over with. While he gets plenty of support from the left, the right is not nearly as easy to trick.
Kaepernick doesn’t even realize that Black and Brown citizens were being targeted by Soleimani. This wouldn’t fit the anti American narrative that he likes to perpetuate, that is for certain. Facts are the enemy of liberal thought. It is much easier to simply spout off hot takes. Social justice warriors might be willing to buy into his ranting and raving but some of us have a bit more common sense than that.
For a man who is living well in America and has signature Nike shoes flying off the shelves, he sure does complain a lot. Hopefully, he can stop crying one day and realize how good he has it. The Iranian regime that was just topped would not allow him to live nearly as comfortably as he does now. Maybe this is something that he would like to take the time to consider before he tweets again. That is probably asking way too much, though.
