Former Republican Congressman Allen West has made a good faith effort to keep an open mind about unemployed NFL quarterback and all the liberal controversy that has swirled around Colin’s inability to find a new NFL team.
West clearly has had enough, and just ripped into Kaepernick and the liberals who are helping him in a scathing article on allenbwest.com. Wrote Col. West, “…now I hear there’s a petition of folks who are planning to boycott the NFL if Colin Kaepernick doesn’t get picked up by a football team. This is typical of the left who only operates in the world of intimidation, coercion, and violence…threats. So now the progressive socialist left wants to coerce and intimidate a private sector business into accepting one of their chuckleheads.”
He continued, “Here’s the bottom line: Colin Kaepernick utilized his freedom of speech and expression — stupidly — in protest against our national anthem. That is his right, but guess what my tender cupcake leftist social justice warriors, there are consequences.”
Then he got to his main point, saying, “If Colin Kaepernick wants to make politicized statements he is free to do so. And NFL teams also have a freedom, not to hire him! You delusional leftists seem to believe we have to put up with your insidious proclamations and actions. We do not.”
He added, “Can y’all be so intellectually challenged to believe that you get to say and do whatever you wish, and all others must accommodate and acquiesce, to your whims? That is reflective of the childlike immature manner in which you live your lives. You throw a tantrum in public and expect not to get spanked.” Do you agree with Allen West?
