Almost as if a memo has been distributed, the left is beginning to rally around former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, as seen over the weekend when rapper Jay-Z wore a Kaepernick jersey during an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Quick to jump on the bandwagon was disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin, who is desperately seeking a return to relevancy after posing with a bloodied, decapitated fake head of President Donald Trump — a photo seen by the Trump’s youngest son.
With Trump weighing in on NFL players disrespecting the national anthem, which appears to have turned the tide in the so-called protests, Griffin took to social media to celebrate Kaepernick’s “activism.”
Activism that included wearing socks that depict “rogue cops,” as the radical player described it, as cartoon pigs.

“Your activism has come at a price but you haven’t backed down…not even once. Thank you for leading the way,” Griffin tweeted.

Additional “activism” from Kaepernick was to compare modern police to runaway slave patrols of the 1800s.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

How much does Kaepernick hate police? Enough to donate $25,000 to a group that honors convicted cop killer and domestic terrorist Assata Shakur.

And it get’s better. The far-left player once wore a T-shirt emblazoned with photos of Malcolm X and Fidel Castro — Kaepernick has also publicly defended the murderous communist dictator.
“One thing Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” Kaepernick said during a teleconference last year with sports reporters from Miami.
All of this has earned Kaepernick a title of “bridge builder,” as he was described last week by CBS’ “NFL Today” sportscaster James Brown, who believes the unemployed QB deserves some “credit,” according to Media Research Center.
A theme picked up by Griffin.
But looking on the bright side, the vile comedian did provide social media users with plenty of entertainment… by presenting a golden opportunity to mock her.
