Is America a great country or what? Only in the United States of America can a person earn millions of dollars fomenting racial discord and hatred for one’s own country.
In fact, if you’re in with the right media-approved crowd and pushing a politically correct “woke” social justice message, even the Walt Disney Co. will throw money at you.
On Monday, Disney announced “an overall first-look deal” with Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL player who earned tens of millions of dollars playing a ball game, only to begin protesting the national anthem over perceived police brutality and oppression.
The announcement from the entertainment giant came two days after the radical left athlete rejected America on Independence Day.
With his feet firmly planted in the 19th century, Kaepernick spewed in a tweet about how the U.S. “enslaved our ancestors” and “dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized” black people for centuries.
Claiming black people are not free (ironically, he’s not referencing the Democratic Party plantation), he concluded: ” We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”
Disney said in a statement:
The Walt Disney Company today announced an overall first-look deal with Colin Kaepernick’s production arm Ra Vision Media. The partnership will focus on telling scripted and unscripted stories that explore race, social injustice and the quest for equity, and will provide a new platform to showcase the work of Black and Brown directors and producers. The first-look deal will extend across all Walt Disney Platforms including Walt Disney Television, ESPN, Hulu, Pixar, and The Undefeated. Kaepernick will work closely with The Undefeated, which is expanding its portfolio across Disney, to develop stories from the perspective of Black and Brown communities.
To give you a feel of how radically left the end product will be, former ESPN staffer Jemele Hill will be one of the producers — Hill is professional league race baiter.
Which does not deter the excitement Robert Igor, Executive Chairman of the Walt Disney Company, has over bringing Kaepernick on board.

Netflix announced last week that Kaepernick will be the subject of a six-part series.
The series, “Colin in Black and White,” will explore the malcontent athlete’s life, in a campaign that will lay a foundation for his current activism.
Imagine the shock of some viewers when they learn that Kaepernick was raised by two white parents in a comfortable middle income home after his white mother put him up for adoption.
One thing is certain, Kaepernick’s “piggy socks,” which he wore on the field to show his anti-police views, are not likely to be showcased by Disney or Netflix.
Can you please show the piggy picture of Kaepernick’s socks while you’re at it? We all want to see that patriotism. I’ll do the favor for you… pic.twitter.com/DItAYWaMOB

With the death of George Floyd, the Democrats and their media enablers have been wildly successful in establishing that racially motivated police brutality is rampant in America, even though statistics prove this is a false narrative.
They’ve used the occasion to resurrect and lionize Kaepernick, claiming he was right all along.
In a presidential election year, the politically motivated Black Lives Matter movement also reemerged to denounce how black Americans are treated– never mind that many of the cities activists are active in have either black mayors, black police chiefs or black prosecutors. Hell, in some cities all three seats are held by African-Americans.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
So you’re doing the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. said to do, basically, is what you’re saying. You’re being racist.

“There is a certain class of race problem-solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium to make themselves prominent before the public.” – Booker T. Washington

The story of a man who dumps on the flag and the anthem, praises Castro, calls cops pigs, dismisses July 4 as a white supremist holiday, and thinks he should be signed despite not playing for 4 yrs and sucking when he did. Congratulations!
