Kaepernick’s Real Anti-Cop Bias
He donates to an organization that celebrates cop-killing terrorist Assata Shakur.
In an attempt to gin up a positive vibe for the man responsible for starting the NFL’s National Anthem kneeling protests, unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick has touted his philanthropic acumen by pledging to donate $1 million to charitable organizations. However, it appears that Kaepernick’s judgment of worthy charities is as misguided as his evaluation of American society and law enforcement in particular. The Washington Times reports that Kaepernick has donated $25,000 to an organization called Assata’s Daughters — an organization named in honor of the cop-killing terrorist Assata Shakur.
Shakur, a member of the domestic terrorist organization Black Liberation Army, was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison. In 1979, she escaped prison and fled to Cuba where she was granted asylum and remains to this day.
Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 with a mission to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.” If you’re wondering if Kaepernick’s choice of organization is merely an honest accident, then look no further than his congratulatory birthday tweet to Shakur this past July. (The leftist Women’s March did the same thing.) It is increasingly evident that Kaepernick has neither love for America nor for those who willingly stand to protect its citizens. That’s why other NFL players following his lead is even more offensive.
