Here’s What Miami Thinks of Castro-Loving Kaepernick

The fact Colin Kaepernick is an idiot is not in question here. We’re now talking scale. For instance, would O.J. Simpson get more or less boos than Kaepernick in any given stadium? Take your pick of hated people and do your own comparison; your mileage may vary.

But in Miami, they roundly booed the 49er quarterback for his shameful defense of the despotic monster Fidel Castro.

Kaepernick wore a T-shirt in August with an image of Fidel meeting with Malcolm X in 1960 with the caption “Like minds think alike.” In a conversation with a Cuban-American reporter who took umbrage at the T-shirt, Kaepernick parroted every liberal myth propagated about Castro.

According to the Palm Beach Post, the national anthem-protesting QB first responded by trying to shift the conversation to Malcolm X. “I’m not talking about Fidel Castro and his oppression,” said Kaepernick. “I’m talking about Malcolm X and what he’s done for people.”

When the Cuban reporter wouldn’t let Kaepernick dodge his “uncomfortable” question, the quarterback responded by praising Castro for his educational reforms and—as he is wont to do—making another disparaging comment about his own “oppressive” country.

“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system—which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” said Kaepernick.

To put the proverbial cherry on Kaepernick’s (and the 49ers) cake of failure, the Dolphins won 31 to 24. On the last play, the San Fran quarterback tried to scramble to the end zone to tie the game, but capitulated, on his knees, two yards short. He and his team left the field in a shower of boos.

The sooner the 49ers get rid of this albatross of shame, the better for the team, and honestly, for the NFL. Maybe Cuba is interested in starting an American-style football league? I know of one player I’d gladly send there. I think most of Miami would agree.
