Colin Kaepernick, 49ers QB and Islamist, Refuses to Stand For National Anthem



American soldiers are fighting and dieing in the heart of the Islamic world to protect the decent Muslims and Christians and Kurds and all non belligerents, and Colin Kaepernick  is making millions of dollars playing football in a country that he, apparently, despises.
Kaepernick recently converted to Islam and has a bone to pick with “Satan America”.
We at IsraelAmerica thank the Dailycaller.com for the following article:

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick disrespected all of America when he refused to stand for the national anthem.

Kaepernick, who has fallen hard and fast from his days as an elite quarterback, refused to stand for the national anthem against the Green Bay Packers. He was clearly motivated by some sense of a misguided understanding of oppression. (RELATED: Millionaire NFL Quarterback Has Mind-Boggling Reason For Refusal To Stand For National Anthem)

The dual-threat quarterback stated, “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.”

You know where else there were dead American bodies? The beaches of Normandy, the beaches of Japan, the Ardennes Forest, the mountains of Afghanistan, the deserts Iraq and many more places were members of the United States military paid the ultimate sacrifice. Not standing up for the national anthem doesn’t make you a hero. Holding the line during the Battle of the Bulge with limited ammo, no air support, no winter clothing and little food makes you a hero.

Secondly, America literally provided the environment that allowed Kaepernick to earn millions of dollars. As an American, regardless of race, we all have the opportunity to pursue whatever we want. Kaepernick didn’t make the NFL because he was black. He made the NFL because he was talented enough to play with the best players in the league.

Football stadiums are guarded by small armies of police officers during games. Kaepernick and the 49ers team bus is escorted by a police motorcade ready to use lethal force if necessary to protect the players. Nobody has ever heard him complain about the police protecting him. Their presence defending his life is a clear example of America providing an atmosphere that allows him to succeed.

Finally, Kaepernick accuses police of getting away with murder. However, he didn’t provide a single example. Mike Brown was killed in Ferguson because he attacked a police officer. That’s not murder. Sylville Smith was shot and killed in Milwaukee because he drew a gun on a police officer, and there’s video evidence to prove it.

South Carolina police officer Michael Slager shot a black man in the back then was promptly arrested and charged with murder.


Perhaps Kaepernick should be a little more thankful for the men and women in uniform defending and protecting his life. Or perhaps he should provide examples of the “people getting paid leave and getting away with murder” before he continues to make a fool out of himself.

A SENSE OF REALITY


When you actually hear what the anti-Israel, anti-American and anti-Western forces say, it reveals just how inaccurate is their analysis, often allowed to be given without contradiction in much of the media.
Here are two quotes from Yahoo coverage of anti-Israel demonstrations:
1. Paul Mukerji, 42, from Birmingham, acknowledged Israel had security reasons but called its action disproportionate. "The best way for peace for Palestinians and Israelis is to end the occupation," he said.
Yep! End that occupation and all the shooting will stop. As you know, it was Israel's end of occupation in south Lebanon that led to attacks by Hizballah. And Israel's end of occupation in the Gaza Strip that led to attacks by Hamas. And Israel's agreement with the PLO and withdrawal from part of the West Bank raised the level of terrorism there (at least for about half of the last 15 years). No doubt if Israel withdrew completely from the West Bank....
But in logical terms, of course, if you believe that "occupation" causes violence--rather than, say, revolutionary Arab nationalist and Islamist movements that sought total victory--you MUST argue that these are defensive reactions. Of course, they are aggressive ones.
2. Ali Saeed, 24, from Luton, said Western governments had failed to condemn Israel's actions. "What's going on in Gaza is not right ... It's not a coincidence that it's going on in Iraq, in Chechnya, in Kashmir. It's just about going on everywhere. It's almost a direct insult to every single Muslim," he said.
Iraq: Saddam Hussein has repressive dictatorship, Saddam attacks Iran, Saddam attacks Kuwait, terrorists today kill mostly other Muslims in a Sunni-Shia battle. Yes, so why blame America?
Chechnya: One could argue that this is an occupation issue--the Russians have been there for about 150 years-- but the Chechnya rebels have deliberately targeted Russian civilians and killed their own moderates who tried to work out a deal. At any rate, one can contrast Russian methods—leveling the capital city and killing many thousands of civilians—with Israel’s, with Hamas admitting 85 percent of the casualties in the current campaign are its soldiers and most of the rest victims of its policy of turning civilians into involuntary human shields.
Kashmir: Radical Islamists backed by Pakistan murder Indian civilians and carry out terrorism in India. To my knowledge, the Indians never used harsh repression in Kashmir, certainly not before the start of a terrorist war there.
And how about:
Massacres of Christians in Indonesia; of Christians and Buddhists in Thailand; of Christians in the Philippines; and of Christians and Shia Muslims in Iraq; and of Christians and Druze and Sunni Muslims in Lebanon; and of fellow Muslims in Algeria and Egypt and Saudi Arabia; and of course al-Qaida attacks including September 11; and the London subway bombings, and the Bali bombing; and the Spanish commuter train bombings; and the Mumbai attacks; and the murder of animists and fellow Muslims in Sudan; and so on.
Once upon a time in the West there were institutions which challenged and corrected a factually ludicrous world view. Now, alas, they often further it.
And of course, this isn’t the first time—even in living memory—that the world has faced such movements, such falsehood, such places:
But ideas can be true although men die,
And we can watch a thousand faces
Made active by one lie:


“And maps can really point to places
Where life is evil now:
Nanking; Dachau.”
In Time of War,” W.H. Auden, 1939
And now: Kabul, Tehran, and Gaza under Hamas rule.
But common sense does prevail. The truth is that the demonstrations have not been impressive in Europe and America, both in size and in the ability of the anti-Israel forces to mobilize non-Muslims in any serious numbers.

Jewish Lives Don't Matter to BLM



Like many fellow Jews, I fought for black voting and civil rights in the 1960s. I participated in sit-ins, marched, traveled to Mississippi, and was arrested there. I — and virtually every Jew and Jewish organization — rightfully continue to support equal rights and fair and unbiased treatment of African-Americans, and everyone else, today.

However, the abiding Jewish support for black equality should not blind any organization into supporting the anti-police, antisemitic, anti-Israel #BlackLivesMatter movement. Therefore, my organization, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), is urging the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to discontinue ADL’s statements and educational materials promoting the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Here’s why:

The coordinated ambush and assassination of five innocent Dallas police officers and wounding of seven more, is another horrifying chapter in the “war on cops” targeting our country’s first line of defense. One of the shooters cited “Black Lives Matter” and said that he “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

The #BlackLivesMatter movement’s incitement of anti-police violence helped create the environment that led to the Dallas massacre of police officers, according to experts including former New York City Police Commissioner Howard Safir; US CENTCOM official Colonel Derek Harvey, and National Association of Police Organizations Executive Director William Johnson. Johnson stated:

“It’s a war on cops. . . . I think their [the Obama administration’s] continued appeasement at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems of this country has directly led to the climate that has made Dallas possible.”

#BlackLivesMatter “Million Marchers” strode through New York City streets chanting: “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” (Video) Just hours after a black shooter murdered a white law enforcement officer who was putting gas into his car, #BlackLivesMatter movement activists marched in St. Louis cruelly chanting: “Pigs in a blanket, Fry ‘em like bacon.” (Video) After hearing #BlackLivesMatter’s calls to kill police officers, Bill O’Reilly named #BlackLivesMatter a “hate group.”

#BlackLivesMatter members’ incitement to murder police is good reason for every decent organization to condemn the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In addition, self-respecting Jewish and pro-Israel organizations should also condemn and refuse to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement because #BlackLivesMatter is permeated with Jew hatred, and has allied itself with anti-Israel hate groups that seek to destroy and boycott Israel.

At Ferguson and other protests, #BlackLivesMatter and anti-Israel pro-Palestinian Arab activists chant and carry banners proclaiming: “From Palestine to Ferguson, End Racism Now” and “From Ferguson to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime.”

#BlackLivesMatter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, and over 1,000 black “social justice” activists, including other leading #BlackLivesMatter activists and allies, signed a vicious antisemitic, anti-Israel manifesto called the “2015 Black Solidarity Statement with Palestine,” falsely accusing Israel of “ethnic cleansing,” “brutality,” “massacres,” “apartheid,” “theft,” and “one-sided slaughter.” The “Black Solidarity with Palestine statement” also “wholeheartedly endorsed” BDS. The statement also touted international trips by “representatives of Black Lives Matter, Ferguson and other racial justice groups to Palestine” to strengthen their “joint struggle.”

#BlackLivesMatter and anti-Israel groups also do “teach-ins” based on their hateful propaganda video entitled “When I see them, I see us,” which likens Gazan “victims of Israel” to American black victims of police shootings. On April 3, 2016, #BlackLivesMatter and the Cincinnati Palestine Solidarity Coalition hosted such a “teach in” to build — “Solidarity Between the Movements for Black and Palestinian Liberation” — at Cincinnati’s Clifton Mosque. The anti-Israel hate group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)’s national conference in Boston featured #BlackLivesMatter activists.

Incredibly, the ADL supports #BlackLivesMatter in various fora. ADL head Jonathan Greenblatt said that: “. . . making sure that “Black Lives Matter”. . . . are the struggles of our time” in his recent speech to extremist anti-Israel, Soros-funded J Street U.

ADL’s website contains at least 8 misleading “lesson plans,” “curriculum resources” and “family discussion guides” that bolster the “BlackLivesMovement” and/or its racist theories such as “unearned white privilege.” Thousands of impressionable youngsters may be misled by ADL’s damaging lessons.

ADL’s lesson plan entitled “What is Happening in Ferguson, MO” encourages students in grades 9 to 12 to join and assist the protests, vigils, and other activism protesting the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. Notably, these are the very same protests and vigils that demand an end to Israel’s existence, using anti-Israel “From Ferguson to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime” chants and banners!

ADL’s lesson plans also bolster the “hands up” lie at the root of the #BlackLivesMatter” movement, by failing to mention that the exhaustive DOJ/FBI/U.S. Attorney’s investigation found that Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson while charging at police officer Wilson, and that Brown’s hands were not up in the air.  The resulting DOJ report concluded: “The evidence establishes that the shots fired by Wilson after Brown turned around were in self-defense.” Instead, ADL’s “What is Happening in Ferguson, MO” lesson and “Exploring Solutions to Address Racial Disparity Concerns” lesson portray “hands up” as at least as likely a scenario as self-defense.

Similarly, ADL fails to mention that the DOJ report and recordings showed that Officer Wilson knew that Michael Brown had just committed a robbery. ADL’s lessons instead leave the impression that Officer Wilson did not know about the robbery (thereby implying that the officer encountered Brown without cause).

ADL’s lesson plans also contain misleading, selective police shooting statistics; frequently fail to present self-defense claims, or present self defense as an example of “racial profiling”; and promote the racist, divisive “unearned white privilege” theory.

It’s time for ADL to stop fighting for the antisemitic BlackLivesMatter movement and spend all its energies fighting antisemitism.

Morton A. Klein is the President of the Zionist Organization of America.
