These days, Leftists can find just about anything to stage a protest over.
On Wednesday evening, several hundred protesters took a break from tossing urine on police and tearing down Confederate statues (OK, we know not ALL of them actually tore down Confederate statues!) and turned their attention to the NFL and its supposed blackballing of America-hating quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick is black listed because protests against racism offend folks more than the actual racism itself.

Gathering outside NFL headquarters in New York City, they chanted, held signs, and insisted that a team, any team, avoid the dreaded ‘racism’ charge and employ the washed-up QB post-haste.
They also started a trending Twitter hashtag – #ImWithKap…

It looks like Sarandon has been forgiven for abandoning Hillary during the election. At least temporarily forgiven. Maybe this protest will get her back in the lib’s good graces.

If people rallying to support a man who protested injustice upsets you, but the injustice doesn't, you are part of the problem #ImWithKap pic.twitter.com/Q9eaFlj1kJ

Except, conservatives can comment on hashtags too…

Susan Sarandon is in front of NFL HQ right now. If that doesn’t tell you how lame, exploitative, and meritless the protest is, nothing will.

SHAKEDOWN! Protesters trying to force NFL to have team choose mediocre QB that started his activism when he got benched #ImWithKap <–Not me

#ImWithKap. Quarterbacks should be hired for their wokeness and not for their skill!

Kaepernick, of course, became the face of the NFL #Resistance when he started taking a knee during the national anthem as a protest against police brutality. And while he has his supporters, as was evidenced on Wednesday afternoon, odds are most of the nation would actually rather see the former San Francisco quarterback doing something else for a living, something that doesn’t involve disrespecting our country.
#ImWithKap…NOT! @Kaepernick7 is a poor football player and an even worse citizen.
