In an interesting bit of serendipity Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died only hours after being praised by militant Black Panther quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The NFL has found out that it’s failure to stomp down on Kaepernick’s anti-cop pissing on the flag has morphed into a crisis of sagging ratings and future lost revenue and the man does seem have the magic touch now that the old commie has croaked right after receiving his endorsement.
With the San Francisco 49ers in town to play the Miami Dolphins the mulatto madman infuriated locals with his fawning comments about Castro’s greatness.
According to the Palm Beach Post “San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick praises Fidel Castro for investing in education”:
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who caused a controversy early this season by wearing a T-shirt that contained an image of Fidel Castro, praised Castro’s educational system in a heated conference call with the South Florida media Wednesday.
Kaepernick began a national debate in September when he refused to stand for the national anthem to protest inequality and oppression in America. Kaepernick, whose 49ers play the Dolphins on Sunday, continues to kneel during the anthem.
When pressed about the shirt, Kaepernick first pointed out that Malcolm X also was pictured. Kaepernick said he supports Malcolm X and his willingness to be “open-minded” before forming his own views of the world. Part of that open-mindedness, he said, was meeting with the Cuban leader.
But when The Miami Herald reporter repeatedly asked about Castro specifically, Kaepernick said, “I’m not talking about Fidel Castro and his oppression. I’m talking about Malcolm X and what he’s done for people.”
The reporter, from a family of Cuban exiles, then accused Kaepernick of diverting the conversation because it was “uncomfortable” to talk about perceived support of Castro. At that point, Kaepernick said, “One thing that 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.”
The reporter said Castro also broke up families, unlike what occurs in the United States.
“We do break up families here,” Kaepernick said. “That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of native Americans.”
Shortly thereafter, Castro was dead and celebrations raged across Little Havana.
The Miami Herald speculated on what sort of reception that the 49ers scruffy loser can expect Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium:
Colin Kaepernick picked the wrong week — and worst place — to defend Fidel Castro.
Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers’ activist quarterback, can expect a hellacious chorus of boos when he takes the field at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday.
That was probably a given anyway after Kaepernick wore a Fidel Castro shirt in a post-game news conference a few months back and then praised Cuba’s literacy rate under Castro during a conference call with Miami reporters on Wednesday.
Castro, whose brutal and oppressive reign in Cuba lasted for decades, died Friday at age 90.
Kaepernick is expected to start in Sunday’s Dolphins-Niners game in Miami Gardens, where he can expect a hostile greeting from the home crowd.
However, the Dolphins are not planning any increased security beyond their normal routine.
Social media is just having a ball over Kaepernick’s impeccable timing:
