The Hypocrisy of Kaepernick in 4 Stories

Recommended Posts

This is not about opinions on someone. These are 4 stories that actually happened.

  • In each set there is Kaep or his handlers spinning garbage.
    • The follow up is reality
  • The liberal media coddles this guy and does not want us putting these stories together.
    • They do everything they can to censor any opinions on him that do not worship his fake agenda.

 

Read this:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19840805/colin-kaepernick-travels-ghana-independence

and then read this (its long)

https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2019/02/africa/ghana-child-slaves-intl/

Summary: He went to the current slave tolerant country of Ghana to protest American slavery that ended 150+ years ago. (much longer in the North)

He did this on the 4th of July with his middle finger facing west

 

Read this:

https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/03/15/colin-kaepernick-interested-miami-dolphins-qb-job  (the story is on every sports site right now)

and then read this

https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/armando-salguero/article117033883.html

Summary: He is ignorant to the point of evil to people of Cuban decent and his people DARE to talk about him playing there.

At least they are smart enough to no longer let that clown in front of unbiased reporters.

You’re wasting your time. Facts and logic don’t resonate with the pro-Kaepernick crowd.

I don't think anyone is pro Kaepernick on this board. I just don't think anyone cares about it anymore

Agreed. Even those that supported Kaep don't care. Especially considering that at best, he sold out which in the minds of his supporters, is about the worst thing you could do as a wealthy activist.

ESPN , SI, and all those liberal leaners push their bogus agenda so I replied with the facts.

A place like this is one of the few outlets that will not censor the truth.

 

If posting 4 links means obsession then I must be a raving lunatic when it comes to Foles, Eagles, and hundreds of other topics.

I spend way more time on the 'Patriots are cheaters' myth or the Jags fake defense of 2017.

Well it is a football sub-forum. All those other things you mentioned had to do with playing football, not the political aspects. 

 

And no one is censoring you. Feel free to post whatever you like. I was just giving adding my opinion which mirrored what a few other posters said.

I was adding facts to a story that was in the football/sports section of all major sports outlets.

Kapernick's handlers saying he is interested in being the starting QB of the Dolphins is a football story.

Its just that those outlets insist it should be a 1-sided story.

The wrong people often try to send the right message in the wrong way.

I support Kaepernick's cause, but I also think he's an idiot.

I found the article about Ghana and child slavery interesting. 

And considering Kap went to Ghana looking for his personal freedom I’m trying to find anything about Kap Denouncing this serious problem in Ghana.

Kaepernick is a hypocrite plain and simple. He was kneeling for human rights and dignity yet he signed a contract with NIKE. NIKE's international workforce is made up of 80 percent women. NIKE pays these women an average wage of 150.00 a month. They just opened a plant in Vietnam and pay the women they hired 34.00 dollars a week for an 80 hour work week and then sell the sneakers they make for 140.00 a pair. I own nothing made from NIKE and haven't for a very long time.  I guess Kaepernick is only worried about certain peoples human rights.

Does anyone remember why Marge Schott was forced to sell the Reds?

  • She praised a vile dictator.

What Kaepernick said was enough to get him a lifetime ban from the NFL.

  • Its also enough for each individual team to never hire him.

Each NFL team should be praised for not hiring that turd.

I wasn't familiar with this story, so I looked into it. I would say praising Hitler is worse than praising Castro, and that comment wasn't even the thing that did her in. She wasn't forced to sell the team until three years later, and this was after after almost a decade of reportedly racist and homophobic comments that were directed at players and employees in the organization.
 

Quote

Controversies[edit]

Racism[edit]

On November 13, 1992, Charles "Cal" Levy, a former marketing director for the Reds, stated in a deposition for Tim Sabo, a former employee who was suing the team, that he'd heard Schott refer to then-Reds outfielders Eric Davis and Dave Parker as "million-dollar ****s."[7] Sabo, whose position was "team controller," alleged that his 1991 firing was due to testifying against Schott in another lawsuit brought against Schott by several limited partners and because he opposed the unwritten policy of not hiring blacks. Schott's countersuit alleged that Sabo wrote unauthorized checks to himself and paid health insurance premiums to retired front-office employees. She asked for $25,000 in damages for defamation. Sabo ultimately lost his suit.

Levy, who is Jewish, alleged that Schott kept a NSDAP swastika armband at her home and claims he overheard her say "sneaky goddamn Jews are all alike."[7] The next day, Schott issued a statement saying the claims of racism levied against her were overstated and that she did not mean to offend anyone with her statement or her ownership of the armband. Schott explained that the swastika armband had been a gift from a former employee.[8]

On November 29, Schott said the "million-dollar ****s" comment was made in jest, but then stated that she felt that Adolf Hitler was initially good for Germany and did not understand how the epithet "****" could be offensive.[9]

During the same season, a former Oakland Athletics executive assistant, Sharon Jones, is quoted in The New York Times as having overheard Schott state: "I would never hire another ****. I'd rather have a trained monkey working for me than a ****," before the start of an owners' conference call.[10]

On May 5, 1996, Schott aroused ire when she made statements favorable of Adolf Hitler, saying he "was good in the beginning, but went too far."[3] Later in the month, Schott was quoted in Sports Illustrated as speaking in a "cartoonish Japanese accent" while describing her meeting with the prime minister of Japan.[3] Further, she said that she did not like Asian American kids "outdoing our kids" in high school.[3]

Other incidents[edit]

Schott was the target of frequent criticism for allegedly allowing her ever-present St. Bernards, Schottzie and Schottzie 02, near complete free rein of Riverfront Stadium, including their defecating on the field.[3]

Schott was known for not wanting to hire scouts, stating that "All they do is sit around and watch ball games,"[3] and wanting not to post scores of other games on the Riverfront Stadium scoreboard (the cost of this service was $350/month). Schott said of the scoreboard issue, "Why do [fans] care about one game when they're watching another?"[3]

On May 18, 1994, during a speech before the Ohio County Treasurers Association, Schott commented that she did not want her players to wear earrings because "only fruits wear earrings."[11] She said, "I was raised to believe that men wearing earrings are fruity."[11] Up to 1999, the Reds had a long-standing rule prohibiting players from having facial hair. In 1985 Schott famously offered future Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers to play for the Reds, on the condition that Fingers would shave off his iconic handlebar mustache. Fingers supposedly responded that he would shave his mustache "when (Schott) shaves her Saint Bernard."[3] The rule was rescinded after a discussion between Schott and newly acquired outfielder Greg Vaughn.

In 1995 Schott famously announced in the middle of the season that manager Davey Johnson would not return, regardless of how well the Reds did. By all accounts, this was because of a personality clash between Johnson and Schott. Most notably, Schott did not approve of Johnson living with his fiancée before they were married later in the year.[12] The Reds won the division (before losing the National League Championship Series to the Atlanta Braves, 4 games to 0), and Johnson was fired anyway.

The Reds traditionally played the first game of the season at home. On April 1, 1996, they played the Montreal Expos. The weather was cold and blustery and it had snowed earlier in the day. Shortly after the game started, home plate umpire John McSherry called a time out and motioned towards the Reds dugout, it was later presumed, for medical attention. After taking a few steps, McSherry collapsed and fell to the artificial turf face first. Attempts to resuscitate McSherry failed and he was pronounced dead at University Hospital about an hour later. The other umpires decided to postpone the game until the next day. Video showed Schott visibly upset that the game was to be postponed; reportedly she groused, "Snow this morning and now this. I don't believe it. I feel cheated. This isn't supposed to happen to us, not in Cincinnati. This is our history, our tradition, our team. Nobody feels worse than me."[13] Schott later insisted that she was standing up for the fans, though critics saw her comments as insensitive. Schott reportedly offended major league umpires in general—and members of McSherry's crew in particular—by regifting a bouquet of flowers given to her, adding a sympathy note, and sending it to the funeral home.[3] During the team's next homestand, Schott attempted to smooth over her feud with the umpires by apologizing to the crew—despite none of them having been in attendance at the game in question—only to have them refuse the gesture.[3]

On an airplane, Schott was allegedly approached by a woman who introduced herself as Edd Roush's granddaughter. Schott then replied, "That's nice hon, what business is he in?" Roush is a Hall of Fame center fielder who had many of his greatest years with the Reds.[14]The New York Times later dubbed her "Baseball's Big Red Headache."[4]

Sanctions and forced retirement[edit]

Due to Schott's racist comments, a four-man committee was convened to investigate Schott. On February 3, 1993, she was fined $250,000 and banned from day-to-day operations of the Reds for the 1993 season. Jim Bowden took over as managing partner. Schott returned to work on November 1.

Schott's comments about Hitler led MLB to ban Schott from day-to-day operations through 1998. On April 20, 1999, Schott agreed to sell her controlling interest in the Reds for $67 million to a group led by Cincinnati businessman Carl Lindner. At the time she was facing a third suspension, failing health and an expiring ownership agreement with her limited partners, who planned to oust her. Schott remained as a minority partner.

From what I've found, all Kaepernick said (originally in a conference call that I can't find copy of) was that Cuba's investment in education and national healthcare were a better allocation of public money than the U.S. effort to fund and monetize the prison system. He was saying that these were two good things that Cuba did, despite Castro's otherwise reprehensible record. It was a legitimate point made in bad taste. The two situations aren't really comparable.

Oh you’re definitely a lunatic. No doubt about that. But you supported the OBJ trade, so you’re cool with me. :D

From my little bit of brief research settlements are taxable income, with very few exceptions like physical personal injury.  

So It looks like he takes home less than half after federal and possibly state taxes.

Idk if nfl players union helps out with fees.  But what I do know is that settlements are taxed on the entire amount. So let’s say you receive $10M and you pay $1M in legal fees; you still get taxed on the $10M
