Colin Kaepernick slammed for comparing NFL Draft to SLAVERY in new Netflix special

COLIN Kaepernick has been branded “the lowest of the low” by outraged viewers after comparing the NFL Draft and training camp to SLAVERY in his new Netflix special.

A clip from the former football quarterback’s new show – Colin in Black & White – has gone viral and caused a social media frenzy to erupt as the 33-year-old attempts to draw similarities between scrutiny players receive from coaches to that of slavers.

In the clip, Kaepernick – who earned more than $40million during his time in the NFL – says players were left with “no dignity intact” by coaches and scouts.

“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” Kaepernick says in the special while walking through a staged NFL practice field.

“Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance.

“No boundary respect. No dignity left intact.”

A line of actors portraying NFL prospects, all of them black, then walk by Kaepernick before morphing into slaves at an auction with shackles on as slave owners examine and bid on them.

Later in the video, the owners start whipping players as Kaepernick attempts to draw comparisons between the abuse slaves suffered in the US and the NFL combine process that drafts players into the league.

After the clip started being shared on social media, many users hit out at the former football star – slamming him as “an imbecile”.

One wrote: “Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery.

“Anyone still defending this imbecile lacks a functional brain.”

Super Bowl Champion and US Representative Burgess Owen also took to Twitter to blast Kaepernick, writing: ” How dare @Kaepernick compares the evil endured by so many of our ancestors to a bunch of millionaires who CHOSE to play game.”

Another user added: “God @Kaepernick7 you are the absolute lowest of the low.

“This racially-divisive bs is exactly what people are starting to wake up to now for what overwhelmingly the large part is: manufactured by ppl like you.

Lincoln Project Scheme To Support Trump In 2024

Lincoln Project’s desire for Trump to run again leaves observers disgusted, surprised: ‘Utterly desperate’

Lincoln Project Scheme To Support Trump In 2024

The Lincoln Project is, on the surface, vehemently against Donald Trump ever becoming president of the United States again. The left-wing PAC founded by disgruntled ex-Republicans has called him a coward, a loser, an authoritarian, a clear and present danger to national security, and responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

So co-founder Rick Wilson’s expressed desire in a recent interview to see him be the Republican nominee in 2024 has some people befuddled, particularly with polls showing Trump with a solid chance of ousting President Biden in a rematch. Some see it as more of a scam from an organization that’s attracted some praise for its aggressive tactics but also derision from the right and left for allegedly abandoning conservative principles and soaking liberal donors. It’s still smarting from the embarrassing John Weaver sexual harassment scandal and its flop in the Virginia governor’s race where it attempted a viral smear to paint Glenn Youngkin supporters as White supremacists.

“It begs the question, why? What’s their motive? What’s their motivation? And I can understand why a lot of people would say it has to do with money,” one network insider and political commentator told Fox News Digital.

The Lincoln Project boasted to CNN about its ad airing this week in Trump’s town of Palm Beach, Florida, that’s meant to annoy him about the rising political star of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis, a Republican, is allied with Trump but could be a potential rival 2024 contender.

“We want Trump to kill his own babies,” Wilson said. “We believe if we narrow the field and it’s only Trump in 2024, it’s an easy choice for Americans to say ‘no.'”

Former Lincoln Project executive director Sarah Lenti, who left the group this year, is disgusted by that stance.

She remains thoroughly opposed to Trump and joined the organization in 2020 because she believed he was dangerous, and she recalled the New York Times op-ed penned by co-founders Weaver, Wilson, Steve Schmidt and George Conway announcing the Lincoln Project’s formation.

“As Americans, we must stem the damage he and his followers are doing to the rule of law, the Constitution and the American character,” they wrote.
