Following reports that an NFL star has been suspended for two games for reportedly threatening to behead his deceased’s father during his dad’s funeral and also reportedly threatening to kill the funeral home’s employees, racial grievance mongers began whining about racial injustice …
Their arguments centered on disgraced former NFL star Colin Kaepernick, who was effectively blackballed from the NFL over his anti-American stunts and protests.
According to the racial grievance mongers, the fact that Oakland Raiders offensive guard Richie Incognito, a white man, will get to keep his job within the industry — despite his psychopathic behavior — proves that racism is alive and well in America and the NFL.
The NFL is a place where troublemaker Richie Incognito threatens to shoot funeral home staffers because they didn’t let him decapitate his father’s corpse and only gets suspended two games, but model citizen Colin Kaepernick gets blacklisted for protesting racial injustice.

Richie Incognito is a sociopath, a racist, a homophobe, & a gun toting psychopath! BUT he’s what The Right & @NFL consider an All American guy, so he gets chance after chance!
Kaepernick knelt for injustice, but he’s what the Right call a terrorist, so he’s out permanently!

Richie Incognito & Colin Kaepernick are football players
One guy wanted to cut his dead father’s head off and calls POC derogatory names while the other wanted to stop police brutality and see POC treated fairly.
Can you guess which guy still has a job in the NFL?

So Richie Incognito after his past and present transgressions still has an @NFL job but @Kaepernick7 addressing a real everyday issue with our society can’t even sniff a workout with a team?? Yeah y’all can have the NFL I’m cool

@nfl where you can blackball @Kaepernick7 and let the guy with a history of psychopathic behavior play on and on. Richie incognito wanted to decapitate his dead father and violently threatened funeral home workers. Kaepernick just wanted cops to stop shooting innocent people

But this shortsighted argument neglects to factor in BUSINESS. While Incognito’s behavior is disturbing, it was personal in nature and occurred nowhere near the field.
“Specifically, the suspension pertains to an incident that took place at a funeral home in August, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero,” CBS Sports reported Friday.
“During the incident in question, Incognito wanted to cut his deceased father’s head off and threatened to shoot employees at the funeral home if they didn’t give him access to his father’s body, according to the police report. Police found firearms in his truck. He pled guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in March, two months before the Raiders signed him.”
This contrasts sharply with the behavior of Kaepernick, who, besides wearing onto the actual field socks that depicted police officers as pigs — repeatedly disrespected the American flag and America’s veterans by kneeling during the national anthem in front of the whole world.
One example may be seen below:
But there’s more. Despite claims by racial grievance mongers that Kaepernick had simply been trying to get “cops to stop shooting innocent people,” recent events have proved that his mission is and has always been about admonishing the country that allowed him to become a millionaire.
Moreover, the facts have always shown that there isn’t actually an epidemic of racist police officers gunning down innocent minorities. If anything, the facts have proven without a shadow of a doubt that the vast majority of black suspects who were killed by the authorities were violent, dangerous men who were taken down justifiably. These are the facts.
Another fundamentally important fact to consider is that business is business, and Kaepernick’s public shenanigans imposed heavy costs on the NFL to the tune of deflated ratings and reduced revenue. Incognito’s private shenanigans, on the other hand, will likely not affect the league’s bottom line.
None of this is meant to justify Incognito’s suspension but rather to rebut arguments by racial grievance mongers who claim the suspension is another sign of racism and blah, blah, blah.
As for the suspension itself, some pro-America, anti-Kaepernick patriots believe that Incognito, a white man, ought to be kicked out of the league just like his black peer.
Richie Incognito should never play again in the #NFL. And before liberals start make Kaepernick look like a saint, Colin wore socks that showed pigs dressed a Cops. Cops deserve the utmost respect. Colin is an unrepentant punk.

Kaepernick was not a good quarterback for many reasons. Mainly teams have to adapt to his playstyle (which never performs well in the NFL). Incognito is a racist piece of trash and he shouldn’t be in the league. Neither should Kaep. These things can be exclusive.

Others disagree, because they feel Incognito possesses what Kaepernick lacks: Talent. Plus, Kaepernick’s issues are ideological, whereas Incognito’s issues appear to be mental.
Richie Incognito has talent to play in the NFL

Isn’t it funny how Liberals try to make EVERYTHING about race?
Richie Incognito has TALENT that NFL teams can use.
Colin Kaepernick has very little of it and the money they lost because of him is not worth it.
Participation trophies don;t get you far in the NFL.

The fact that nobody cares about Ritchie incognito and how hard he is dealing with his fathers death obviously he isn’t thinking clearly. Instead liberals are comparing his situation to Colin Kaepernick b/c liberals are soulless. I hope Ritchie finds the help he needs.
