Kaepernick makes the cut despite cops’ threat to boycott – ‘very loud slap in America’s face’

Colin Kaepernick is going to be able to continue his anti-America, anti-police protest to start the NFL season.

The San Francisco 49ers made its final roster cuts on Sunday but the controversial quarterback was not among them, despite a threat from the local police union to boycott the team’s games if disciplinary action wasn’t taken.

“If the 49ers organization fails to take action to stop this type of inappropriate behavior it could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities,” a letter from the Santa Clara Police Union read. “The board of directors of the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association has a duty to protect its members and work to make all of their working environments free of harassing behavior.”

But Kaepernick won’t only be sitting for the National Anthem.

Head coach Chip Kelly named Blaine Gabber the team’s starting quarterback so Kaepernick will be sitting for the entire game to start the season.

Many on social media were angry the disgruntled multi-millionaire “oppressed” quarterback wasn’t cut.

Others were happy he is at least benched.
