Colin Kaepernik’s Comfort Matters—and You Don’t

by Glenn R. Geist

What’s on my mind? Well I’ll tell you – I’m wondering whether it’s time to suspend elections and hand the keys to the country over to Trump because The idiots who are riding the donkey to hell are going to hand it to him anyway. We need a loyal opposition, not someone who hates history and hates our country and most of the people in it.

OK, call me a racist – I’m sure you will anyway because I’m not pleased and complacent with the idiocy inherent in pulling Nike Shoes from the market because they show a 13 star American flag. There were slaves in those days, says the noted historian and philosopher Colin Kaepernik. It makes him uncomfortable and “thou shalt not make the holy man uncomfortable” is the law of the wokeland. If there were free black men who fought for that flag, If slavery was worldwide it’s wrong to care, because Colin is uncomfortable and self righteous anger is justification for anything as we are supposed to agree.

I’ll tell you something else, progress is not about revenge for historical injustices. if it were, I’d say burn the Vatican, close the churches. Progress is not about forcing us all to self-flagellate, and suffer, especially when the demand comes from someone vastly richer than I am or your are – with my alleged privilege and all.

The constitution was written when there were slaves. So was the Bible. Jesus didn’t preach about freeing slaves.

Actually every human creation or enterprise coexisted with slavery which arose with the Mesopotamian agricultural civilization long before history was recorded.

It was always a slave-based world and even the bible treats it as normal. Of course those thousands of years of slavery include countless nationalities and peoples who can’t claim that their – or anyone elses lives mattered. We’ve been down that road already and we all know that only certain ones do.

Burn all the books, Bibles and sutras and suras and all. I’m joking of course, because my life doesn’t matter and I’m a racist for insinuating that it does – or yours. We all know that that would be racist. And of course most Americans will support the party that backs this demented stuff. Sure they will.

Look, I haven’t given up my freedom or my right to life liberty or the pursuit of happiness because of mankind’s long, slow rise from ignorance and amorality. If Democrats do not stand up and denounce this tyranny and blackmail and racism, I will not vote for them, even if there’s hell to pay.

    Who the fuck is Colin K., to be telling Nike what to sell, and why is Nike listening? Because he’s black. Were he white, or Asian or Latino he wouldn’t be given a second glance. This statement, of course, makes me a racist, as does this one: black Americans make up 13% of the population but if you watch the morning news shows they are the only minority that matters. The Rev. Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton on MSNBC at least two or three times a week. The constant cries of racism, race, Black Lives Matter, issuing forth from 30 Rock hourly it seems. Whatever happened to Latinos, Asians, and etc.? I, for one, am sick and tired of it, and this last Colin K., thing has exhausted me no end. What is happening to us? Fuck…

      Yeah, I could care less about Nike and they do or don’t do with their products. However, if you want the truth about only the black kids want to spend $150 or more for a pair of sneakers. I am older than dirt and I have never paid more than 70 bucks for a pair of sneakers. I am sorry, I remember when you could go buy top quality tennis shoes, as we used to call them, for about $25. That was for a pair of top of the line Converse All Stars. Nike promotes their sneakers to the black youth and uses hip hop culture icons to promote them as well as minority athletes. I heard about this and it bothered me for about 60 seconds, then I went back to my highly tense game of Fiddle Sticks. Since I have all but stopped paying attention to the news it doesn’t bother me near as much as it used to do. In today’s world nothing is what it seems anymore. Up is down, square is round, black or shades of brown are white. Hell, I just learned from our president that it was our air power that won either the Revolutionary War or the War of 1812. Of course, according to the Orangutan occupying the office of president, our brave troops had to take the airport away from the British. Who knew that the Brits were flying war planes 80 or 90 years before the Wright brothers. There are many things that upset me these days but what Nike does or does not do with their over priced chunks of rubber, and who they listen to bothers me not one bit.

    At the moment, some Lakota are trying to get congress to revoke the Congressional medals of honor awarded to some 30 soldiers who machine gunned 300 people – 200 of them unarmed women and children at Wounded Knee. Most of them were shot at point blank range. We’re not hearing about it, and I doubt anything will be done.

    Don’t get me wrong – that black lives do matter as does all life. To some degree every major religion teaches that and it’s the very basis of our laws – that we are all endowed with the same unalienable rights. As an atheist, it’s the nearest belief I have to any religion.

    And yet I’ve had the racist nature of that sentiment carefully explained to me by people I used to respect as liberals. Are there really any good guys left, or are we all just cowards or inquisitors?

      There are some good guys left, but they are getting harder and harder to find. As to BLM, I agree that of course, they do, but, as you point, all lives matter, and we should be talking about that.

      Glenn, I understand where you are coming from on this. I guess its my age getting to me but I don’t have the energy to waste on letting that bother me. For some reason this reminds me of something that an old cop I worked with used to say. “It is not the shot you hear that’s going to kill you. Worry about the shot that you don’t hear and forget about the others because as long as you are hearing the shots you are still on the upside of the grave.”
      As I just posted to Mike, there are a lot of things that bother me less these days. What the hell Nike does or does do with their over priced crap is one of those things.

      I don’t know you there but you should take care about calling people names. At least Glenn has got his history straight.

    I was talking about the Revolutionary war. The Betsy Ross flag had long gone out of use. The Union Flag had 34 stars until ’63 and 35 by the end of the war. There were about 5,000 black combat troops in the Revolutionary war. How easy it is to call someone a moron when you’re full of shit.

      Glenn, does it really bother you about the correctness of of their information? Really? I know from your writing that you are a really intelligent person. People can say what they want to, after all we have a president who apparently believes we had war planes and airports before the Civil War. There is an ironic twist to the fact that neither the football player nor the president know history. You should just ignore the stupids. At least Kaepernick does not have the authority, or possibility of overthrowing our government with his miscues.

        To me the important factor of this contrived argument is that the only purpose is to foster black Vs. White animosity and mistrust. Starting a race war has been a tactic from John Brown, through Charles Manson and others including Vladimir Putin. It’s the best way to defeat the Democrats in 2020 and it may well work. The only issue of importance seems to be who and what is racist and when we can’t even agree that we are all endowed with equal rights and what is acceptable or unacceptable racism, we don’t have a chance. I don’t care about Nike shoes, I wouldn’t own a pair. I care that this millionaire is a hero because of his color and another shade of millionaire is evil because he’s a millionaire. I care that one poor hopeless bastard doesn’t deserve help because he’s one color while hopeless or successful the other guy needs public money because he’s another color. I care that the most downtrodden and oppressed in America deserve nothing and I’m a racist for mentioning the possibility of helping them. I’m simply frustrated at the idea of legally establishing two classes of citizens with different rights and about selling this as constitutional and “fair” I’m
        m on the verge of burning my passport when I hear people calling themselves moral and ethical and Liberal call me a racist for standing up for the founding principle of not only the United States but all the ethical cultures and religions of the world.

        There is no liberal party, only screaming idiots damning my country to extinction as part of the Russian Federation. People who tell me only certain lives matter are my mortal enemies and the mortal enemies of everything I value and hold sacred and so here I stand. I can’t do otherwise.

    Fuck Kaepernik and that has nothing to do with his kneeling BS. I don’t like him.

    What matters is that the Party of Lies is playing this for all it’s worth. And of course Obama used that flag at his inauguration . The game is to capitalize on the several extreme ideas that horrify and unite the bastard base. And yes, all lives matter. Ask Jesus.
