Guess you could say Kaepernick does serve a purpose here besides keeping the bench warm.
I'm so glad Colin Kaepernick is around to show us what idiots the media are for latching onto him as some sort of civil rights hero.

Civil rights hero in his little piggy socks. The media is so EASY.
@benshapiro Well, he was marching, volunteering and working with ghetto youngsters… never mind.

All those pictures of Kap fighting for the rights of his fellow Americans … oh wait. He was just sitting on a bench making some silly statement. Yeah, that’s it.

Psh, they give those Nobel Peace Prizes away in Happy Meals these days. We’ve seen how easy it is to get one …
@benshapiro what a joke that guy is! Like he has someone who can think of himself as some sort of moral authority. Ha

Which is worse though, the a-hole refusing to stand up for the National Anthem or the idiot media that pretend he’s some hero for being an a-hole refusing to stand up for the National Anthem?
@benshapiro who cares what a backup QB thinks?
