We’ve heard a lot of stupid coming from the left these days regarding the strike that took out Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.  On Saturday, the Daily Wire reported that unemployed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick — a man not known for his love of America — suggested racism was behind the attack in which Soleimani was killed.

“There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism, America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.”

The Daily Wire said his tweets sparked a furious backlash from a number of people.

 

Solemani killed many black and brown people in Iraq, in the U.S. Military, and even in Iran. Oh, and he was declared a terrorist by Barack Obama.

 

Mike Cernovich correctly noted:

Perhaps someone told Kaepernick that Iran was forming a football team and Kaepernick wanted to be their QB.  After all, he is desperate to find a football job.

Mark Dice added:

It sounds pretty ignorant to us.  But par for the course for idiotic America-hating liberals like Kaepernick. This is the guy who blew his last chance at getting back into the NFL because of his huge ego.

Kaepernick isn’t alone in this regard, as we’ve reported hereherehere and here.  In fact, it appears the left has decided they hate Trump so much they’re willing to side with America’s enemies.
