Well, can you? I doubt it. First, you have to open your eyes and your mind, and apparently that’s a rather Tall Order for most people. So tall of an order, in fact, most people can’t fulfill it. That incapacity to see and know is by design, by the way. The System ensures it via its various Institutions.
What am I going on about, you ask? This latest kerfuffle related to Colin Kaepernick from the San Francisco 49ers refusing to stand for The National Anthem. It’s been a Lightning Rod & Dog Whistle for ideologists of every Stripe. It’s all over The News rather than the story of the two charitable nuns murdered in their modest home in a small town in Mississippi merely because they got in the way of another person’s Right of Passage. I’m actually relieved The Lamestream Media didn’t carry the nuns’ slaying as Headline News, because if it had, the headline would have read: Two “Altruistic” Nuns Thwarted In Their Attempt To Deny Mississippi Man His Reparations. Seriously, it’s gotten this ridiculous. The Lamestream Media is 100% Orwellian at this juncture — to the point it’s a Main Character right out of the pages of 1984.
So far, everyone has it wrong about Colin Kaepernick’s little “Protest,” including the self-radicalizing Kaepernick who, in his spare time between playing football & protesting, dates a highly successful Muslim Black Lives Matter activist & Hip-Hop radio personality, DJ Nessa Diab. The two overachievers have combined forces and are using the synergy created from their union to, ironically, take on Oppression & White Privilege from their Private Penthouses. FYI, Colin was raised by White Christian parents who adopted him because his White mother (Black Father is unknown) abandoned him at a very early age. That, in my book, makes him a privileged White dude regardless of the color of his skin. He was raised in a White home amidst White culture — and you know what? It shows. He’s Jack Dorsey in a football uniform rather than a Tweety Bird costume. They’re cut from the very same self-absorbed, self-righteous, hypocritical, narcissistic Millenial Cloth — the kind you use to clean your puke up whenever they (The Millenials) open their mouths (which is all the fucking time).
Most of the criticism Kaepernick has fielded thus far has centered around his form of protest, rather than the substance of his protest — if you can even call it a “Protest.” Here’s an example:
I agree with you, Jerry, all lives matter — even Russian lives. Here’s what Kaepernick had to say about his reasoning for not standing for The National Anthem:
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Unlike Colin’s critics, to include Jerry Rice, I agree with not standing for The National Anthem as a form of “Protest,” or resistance or merely as a matter of principle, but I don’t believe the substance, or point of his “Protest” has much merit, if any. I think the Black Lives Matter movement has been concocted by the National Security State to create civil strife and further factionalize the American people. In order to maintain the status quo hierarchical arrangement of power in America and beyond, the National Security State must ensure there is no collaboration & solidarity amongst The Masses and the way to do that is Divide & Conquer as the National Security State‘s been doing now for nearly seventy years. It rules by deception and it uses a lot of unwitting rubes, like Colin & his Muslim BLM girlfriend, to do its bidding. It works like a charm every time — that’s why it keeps using the same tried & true strategy. People can’t stop believing, much to their detriment.
The irony of this is so stark. These two, Colin & his girlfriend and countless other celebs just like them, parroting the propaganda of White Privilege & Oppression is like Adolf Eichmann speaking out against anti-semitism in Nazi Germany, except anti-semitism in Nazi Germany was not imagined. Here are some Tweets & Retweets from Colin. The National Security State is eating this shit up. It’s so perfect. It’s so ironic. It’s so effective — to the National Security State. And Twitter is at the center of it all. It’s the gasoline sprayed on the National Security State bonfire, and I bet that’s not a coincidence.
Oh my, Colin. We could have, in another universe I suppose, found common ground about the Institution of Education in America and how it’s designed to dumb everyone down with the exception of a select few, but no, you had to turn it into a racial issue and blame all White people for it because all White people are privileged — including, and especially, those two uppity nuns murdered in Mississippi. No more White privilege for them, right Colin?
More irony, Colin. My fourteen-year-old son attends a school that has the same percentage of Black students as it does White students. Guess how many White students play on the basketball team? That’s right, zero. No White kids and the coach is Black, by the way. They won one game last season. My son tried out and didn’t make it past the first cut. I’m certain it was because he was White and as we all know, White guys can’t jump, can they Colin? White guys aren’t as big and strong and fast as Black guys, are they Colin? I don’t agree with those statements, but I’m betting the Black coach who cut my son does and many White coaches as well. That’s racist. As racist as you can possibly get because the prejudice and bigotry is based, erroneously, on biology (Jimmy The Greek, anybody?). It reminds me of Calvin Candy’s erroneous, racist appeal to biology in Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
Let’s try this Tweet on for size. The guys at Langley are loving this shit. You know they are.
Explain to me how Freddie Gray’s death is a matter of White Privilege & Oppression considering the mayor of Baltimore is Black and the officer driving the van Freddie Gray was transported in was also Black? Huh? What? How is that my fault? Where is my privilege? I can’t seem to be able to find my White Privilege and I’ve looked everywhere including my mortgage account. In fact, Colin, I believe you have significantly more privilege, and so too does your girlfriend Nessa, than I’ll ever have. Privilege isn’t about skin color — it’s about MONEY. And you and your gal have plenty of it. Hypocrite.
This final one takes the cake, because I swear to you, it could have been crafted deep in the bowels of the CIA — and maybe it was. In the least, it sure was indirectly if not directly. “LEFT” is hankering for a Race War. Plumb Loco.
That Tweet looks like a veiled call to violence, if you ask me. What other approach is there to your imaginary cause, Colin and “LEFT”? Note how the Twitter account “LEFT” doesn’t indicate that other approach or the other approaches. Of course, with a 140 character limit, it’s difficult to articulate nuance and complexity. You can’t have a discussion on Twitter, let alone a reasonable and civil discussion. That shitty social media platform doesn’t allow for such constructive enlightenment. Instead, it enables and tolerates psychopathic trolls parroting inanity & propaganda in perpetuity. It needs to be shut down. It’s a matter of National Security (wink wink nudge nudge).
I’ll tell you what, Colin. I’ll make a deal with you. How about you and all your fellow primadonna athletes forfeit your exorbitant salaries and just play for the love of the game if you want to play football or any silly sport. How about you see this for what it really is. It’s a matter of Class, not Race. It’s a matter of The Haves & The Have Nots. When we view it from that perspective, you Have and I don’t — at least I don’t Have to the egregious extent you do.
Take a look at the pic at the top of this post, Colin. We’re all slaves to that. We’re all oppressed by that and everything it represents. I’m all for protesting the System represented by that flag. In fact, that should be the REAL flag because that’s what America is now, and maybe always was. I’m all for sitting during The National Anthem that harkens to a World that no longer exists, if it ever existed, and I’m not so sure it did. History is a lot like mythology — so much so, sometimes you can’t tell the difference even when you scrutinize it.
So, what do you say, Colin? Are you with me? Let’s “Protest” for All The Right Reasons. Your reasons are not the right reasons — they’re largely imaginary & fabricated and they do not address the root of the matter. It’s late in The Game, Colin, and you’re wasting precious seconds on The Game Clock. Let’s call the right play and win this Game, because it may very well be the last metaphorical Super Bowl to end all Super Bowls. I’m ready when you are, Colin. But you have to leave your privilege behind. Let me know. My door is always open.
