Former San Francisco 49ers second-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick can’t seem to find an NFL team that wants his particular brand of anti-Americanism, but it appears he was able to find a book publisher willing to throw away a million dollars on a book deal.
The inventor of the NFL national anthem protest just inked his million-dollar book deal with the Random House imprint One World Books, according to Page Six.
Page Six previously reported that Kaepernick had been seen “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME” to shop the planned book. He’s repped as an athlete by agent Carlos Fleming, and the book deal, we hear, went through Andy McNicol on the Hollywood agency lit department.
Unsurprisingly, the One World Book line is a far left-wing imprint.
One World’s headed by book world superstar Chris Jackson, who also publishes Jay-Z and Ta-Nehisi Coates. He launched One World last year.
In other words, this book deal is just a way for liberals to give Kaepernick a big payoff.
And left-wing, Kaepernick truly is.
This is the same player who wore a t-shirt celebrating communist dictator Fidel Castro.
As Kaepernick stood there like a moron celebrating a murderous dictator, the Miami Herald related a few facts for us…
Cuba for more than five decades under the Castros has stifled practically any and all dissent. According to Human Rights Watch, “Cuban citizens have been systematically deprived of their fundamental rights to free expression, privacy, association, assembly, movement, and due process of law. Tactics for enforcing political conformity have included police warnings, surveillance, short-term detentions, house arrests, travel restrictions, criminal prosecutions, and politically motivated dismissals from employment.”
But not everyone is falling for Kaepernick’s ill-informed leftism.
Benghazi hero Kris Paronto slammed Kaepernick for his arrogance with an excellent October 17 tweet:

In many ways, America is divided over the NFL protests. Most of the country thinks that taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem is disrespectful to the country, the flag, our soldiers, and police while another large group of Americans thinks the protests are “only” meant to highlight police brutality and not a statement against the country or even against all police equally.
However, those who support these protests may be shocked to find just what Colin Kaepernick himself said of why he was protesting. Kaepernick specifically said that his protests absolutely WERE meant as an anti-American statement.
Here is what Kaepernick said about his protests last August:
I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder
Could it be any more clear? There it is in his own words. He told us he couldn’t stand up for the flag or for the country.
So, don’t fall for the BS that Kaepernick had merely launched a “peaceful protest” to highlight police brutality. He meant it to be an attack on America.
