    Just kneeling for the national anthem is boring- people don't want to see this and they are bored with it.

    If Kaepernick wants to continue his career he has to go in one of two directions.

    One- go 100% into his antiAmerican schtick. Change his name to Colin Abbullah Suqmi and really start trash talking America. Where a Che or Ayatollah tea shirt everywhere, and during the national anthem-don't just take a knee. Go the full measure and defecate on Old Glory. And when the national anthem is over, interrupt and demand to be allow to sing "The Internationale" before the opening kickoff.


    Or two- do a face turn and go 100% patriotic American. Support the NRA, wear a MAGA hat everywhere, get behind the fans. Americans always love to cheer for a prodigal son.

    Either way, it will provide INTEREST in the games, and that will help ratings, even if people are just tuning in to watch Mr. Kaepernick get his comeuppance and a beating that he so richly deserves

    He’s lost his platform; that’s for sure.

    Which is just another reason why the workplace is not the forum for protests of any kind.

    You can spin Mr. Kaepernick's schtick whatever way you like.

    But my overall point is still valid, people are bored with his act, and Kaepernick either needs to double down on his persona, or he has to do an about face and adopt a drastically new one.

    What does any of that have to do with patriotism?

    ..if patriotic means protesting FOR dangerous/dumbass/etc criminals--then I guess he is patriotic
    1. he's protesting not for America, but for blacks
    2.protesting against police brutality of blacks--but there is NOT a major, chronic problem of police brutality--which I've proven in many threads
    ..so he's just another RACIST jackass--yes--he is obsessed with race for no JUSTIFIABLE reason

    Donating $$ to charity may be nice, but it isn't patriotic unless the donations are made to the NRA or other patriotic charity.

    Like I said, Kaepernick needs to do more to generate heat. Taking a knee isn't working. Wearing an Osama Bin Ladin t-shirt and waving a flag with a picture of the ayatollah would really help create interest in his career. People would tune in just to see him get his behind kicked.

    Actually, the Russian Federation has Draconian style gun control, limiting the size of magazines, outlawing handguns, and other extreme measures. Uncle Pooty is an ultra lib.
