Colin Kaepernick Quotes Frederick Douglass Then THIS Happens

Kaepernick finally got a taste of his own medicine… He shot himself in the foot ..

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who just finished nuking the Betsy Ross sneaker produced by Nike, decided to target the Fourth of July itself, cherry-picking from a speech by Frederick Douglass.

Kaepernick initiated his descent by tweeting a quote from Douglass: “‘What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.’ – Frederick Douglass.”

Cruz then launched his fusillade:

You quote a mighty and historic speech by the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass, but, without context, many modern readers will misunderstand. Two critical points: This speech was given in 1852, before the Civil War, when the abomination of slavery still existed. Thanks to Douglass and so many other heroes, we ended that grotesque evil and have made enormous strides to protecting the civil rights of everybody.

Douglass was not anti-American; he was, rightly and passionately, anti-slavery. Indeed, he concluded the speech as follows: “Allow me to say, in conclusion, notwithstanding the dark picture I have this day presented, of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country. There are forces in operation, which must inevitably, work the downfall of slavery. ‘The arm of the Lord is not shortened,’ and the doom of slavery is certain. I, therefore, leave off where I began, with hope. While drawing encouragement from ‘the Declaration of Independence,’ the great principles it contains, and the genius of American Institutions, my spirit is also cheered by the obvious tendencies of the age.”

Cruz concluded, “Let me encourage everyone, READ THE ENTIRE SPEECH; it is powerful, inspirational, and historically important in bending the arc of history towards justice.”

  1. He’s a good example of what all the elitist neo-nazis do he’s just not as smart and evilly coniving as most. It’s really kinda funny when a swollen egos are paired with lower IQs. Except when it’s like skank Pelosi and the lack of intelligence is made up for with by extra coniviness.

  2. There were many people in the history of this country that tried to end slavery BEFORE the Civil War, but the majority was against them. I won’t go into the number of great people that tried to end it but if you want to know, read the bio’s of many great people and learn what you don’t know, it is truly a rewarding experience.
    A little more about the experience of slavery. Most of the slave brought to this country were marked for death as the tribes that they came from lacked the resource to keep them fed. The tribes that they came from took a negative and turned it into a positive by selling these persons into slavery in order to keep the majority of the tribe fed, but this aspect is never mentioned.

  3. Colin, you and your afro are a disgrace to the honest hard working blacks and America who afford you the freedom of dissent. You are also free to leave this country you hate and abide somewhere else. You will not be missed.

  4. Kaepernick!
    Are those beautiful white folks who adopted you evil white Americans too?
    What about your Black Daddy who never ever bothered to look in on you???
    You hate America? Go some place else Chicken Lips!!!

  5. Kaepernick is nothing but a hate-filled, ill-bred moron who made millions kicking a ball but hasn’t done anything worthwhile. Now, he can’t even get signed by anyone. Now, a once good company listens to this TRAITOR and will soon be a little known business. Kaepernick protested but did nothing to help his fellow man. Words is worthless, actions to help means something. Kaepernick, you are a complete embarrassment and disgrace.

    1. Colin Keaperneck does not have even close the pedigree that Fredrick Douglas had. You Sir are NO Fredrick Douglas you are only a spoiled little boy in a man’s disguise not good enough to play and angry because of it. So go to Cand.utt land north of the United States, or Cuba, or Venezuela your Socialist Utopia’s.

      1. John, you have the solution for this boy. Pack up and LEAVE (Permanently). If things are so bad here go to one of you “native” lands and try it. This idiot is the epitome of an insult to the American people!!

  6. I wish someone would take a DNA Test of Kaepernick….He looks more Muslim than he looks Black, look at that Nose, Lips, his Beady Eyes…I know definitely his Heart is so full of Hate for the Country that made him rich is NOT American!!!

  7. Colin is a FOOKEN STUOID ILLITERATE IDIOT and went OUT of his way to make a total A$$ of itself….but then it was expected that he would reveal the fact that he is STUPID!…. and got indoctrinated in the STUPID HALL OF FAME ….

  8. Colin missed his target. And he cost Nike a lot of business. Hope he’s happy. He’s a traitor and should be treated as such.

  9. Kapaernick threw away his lively hood to prove to his black lives matter radical girlfriend that he was black enough. He took the great things his adoptive parents gave to him , a great childhood a good education an NFL career to prove he was black enough.
    Hey he fits in With Nike their not American, their stuff is made overseas by cheap labor I once saw a repot that it cost Nike about $2.82 to make one of their 200.00 shoes.
    We can just ignore both neither really serves any real purpose to American workers.

  10. I’m surprised the Kaepernick could read it well enough to cherry pick the spot he wanted… he’s never shown himself to be that bright, from where I sit.

  11. We’ve heard enough from this piece of ungrateful, embarrassing piece of trash. The thirteen stars on the first flag signified the joining of the 13 states to form the “United” States. It has nothing to do with slavery or anything but a symbol of the of our country which has a hell of a lot more issues than just slavery. Everything that crosses this idiots mind has to do with some kind of negative racial issue. He’s so concerned about his race, sure he is. He kneels while his kind are killing each other by the hundreds in Chicago and other Metro areas each year. Haven’t heard of him making any kind of effort to help stop that. Apparently Black on black is o.k. with him. Very easy to stay on you knee and butt and rather stand straight up and go do some good where its needed. He’s a coward and an embarrassment and his name nor face should ever be shown to the American public again. He’s NO American, He’s a
    Turncoat Traitor!! I’m a Vet and proud of it and this piece of trash is a slap in the face to me.

  12. What a moron. Did he actually think he could take the great Fredrick Douglas out of context and no one would notice? He needs new handlers.

  13. RAPPIN HOE IS THE KAPPERNICK OF SOCCER. SHE WILL GET A NICE SLAVE HOLDER CONTRACT FROM NIKE. SLAVE SNEAKERS MADE IN SLAVE COUNTRIES. SHE DESTROYED AMERICAN SUPPORT FOR HER TEAM. I AM SURE ON THAT TEAM IS ONE VICTIM OF Rappin hoe’s selfishness. one who would have loved to go to the whitehouse and be called an American..ABUTOM SAYS ATTENTION YAHOOERS IT IS NOT THE GREAT ONE WHO WILL BRING THIS COUNTRY TO IT’S KNEES . IT IS THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT RINO RAT PARTY. THE SILENT COUP THAT STARTED IN THE 60’S HAS REACHED IT’S FRUITION. THE COMMUNIST PARTY WITH THE HELP OF ANTIFA IS MOVING FROM STAGE 3 SOCIALISM TO STAGE 4 COMMUNISM VIOLENT REVOLUTION. ANY PARTY THAT CAN KILL BABIES ON THEIR PLATFORM CAN KILL YOU, SEIZE YOUR PROPERTY, TAKE YOUR FLAG DOWN, YOUR CROSS DOWN, YOUR STAR OF DAVID DOWN. THE FIRST MONUMENT THE DEMOCRATS TOOK DOWN WAS THE LAW OF MOSES. THE BASIS OF ALL LAW. ONLY ONE JUDGE FOUGHT TO PRESERVE IT AND HE WAS ASSASSINATED BY COMMUNIST LABELS, THEIR FAVORITE TOOLS RACIST AND RAPIST. THE LAWS OF STALIN FLOW IN THE DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST UNDERCURRENT. JEFF BEZOS YOU BETTER WAKE UP. THEY ARE COMING AFTER EVERYTHING YOU OWN.

  14. Nike needs to drop happy. This country doesn’t need people like him here. When he leaves he should take a few Dems with him. Stop in MN, NY and CA. Really to bad it was just the foot, should have been his brain, oh I forgot he doesn’t have one!

  15. If Nike would put these shoes back on the market they’d have them sold out instantly. No one has any respect for Kapaernick. He’s an American hater trying to round up more like himself. Nike needs to pull up their big-boy pants and up their new product on the market as quickly as possible. People hate Kap so much they’d buy the shoes just to show Nike they need to do their own marketing.

    1. I disagree, I Will Never Buy Nikes Again!
      But if Adidas or Puma want to respectfully put a Besty Ross Flag on a pair of sneakers –
      I will buy Two Pairs!

  16. They hung Douglas . . . anyone but m e think Kaepernick might be a good candidate for that decoration as well ?

  17. I doubt Kaepernick ever read the entire speech but found the quote on an internet meme and thought he would sound educated if he used it!

    But hey, who cares right he has made Millions of Dollars of Anti-American Hate. Why not use your questionable celebrity for a good cause and unite people instead of trying to divide over issues that happened hundreds of years ago acting as though nothing has ever been done to correct old wrongs. 300K men (mostly white men btw) died in a bloody civil war to bring slavery to an end (you know that thing the Dems supported) Laws were passed to end jim crow laws (initiated by the white hooded KKK Dems) Americans fought for Civil Rights and equality— the fact is yes there will always be prejudice especially when people like you keep stirring up old hates that should be remembered historically so we do not repeat them, but leave the hate behind- your ilk only stroke it and keep it going for $$$$.!!!!

    Enjoy your sneakers – I will be looking to buy any other companies that will put a Betsy Ross Flag on it!

  18. This is the way it is done by the liberal left. Cherry Pick the parts you want from whatever source you desire, and make it say what you wish. The people out there like Kaepernick are just too ignorant to understand that as they attempt to destroy America they are ultimately destroying themselves.

  19. What do you expect from a man that was given every opportunity, but can’t respect the existing system that made it possible for his WHITE couple that adopted him and gave him the love, means and education. He resents the Black parents that abandoned him, and the White parents that adopted him. When you look at what he is upset about there isn’t any substance, Black or White.
    There is a question on the net Who is the least patriotic Colin Kaepernick or NIke? Its simple one is
    as bad as the other.

    black

  20. You black son of a bitch, if you dislike this country so much, get your sorry black ass out of it. You certainly will not be missed by anyone and everyone will have more peace; you half nigger asshole!
