Allen West: I Can No Longer Remain Silent on Colin Kaepernick

I’ve kept my peace on this subject, but you can refer to my original comments on the issue of Colin Kaepernick from last year’s football season.

But now I hear there’s a petition of folks who are planning to boycott the NFL if Colin Kaepernick doesn’t get picked up by a football team. This is typical of the left who only operates in the world of intimidation, coercion, and violence … threats.

So now the progressive socialist left wants to coerce and intimidate a private sector business into accepting one of their chuckleheads.

Here’s the bottom line: Colin Kaepernick utilized his freedom of speech and expression — stupidly — in protest against our national anthem. That is his right, but guess what, my tender cupcake leftist social justice warriors-- there are consequences.

If Colin Kaepernick wants to make politicized statements he is free to do so. And NFL teams also have a freedom, not to hire him! You delusional leftists seem to believe we have to put up with your insidious proclamations and actions. We do not.

He is exactly right.
The freedom to speak is inalienable, and the freedom to conduct business is protected by law.

All so long as everybody expressing freedoms in the process, manages to pay their tithe to the governments both state and federal. So you can say anything you wish and you can conduct your business any way you wish, but you MUST PAY TAXES.

That is the kind of government we have now.

9:53 - That would be completely unlike any other nation on the face of the Earth, right?

The boycott was put in place to take your minds off the really issue. The reason for the protest. ✊

And we right-wingers have the right to protest the NFL and their disrespect for our country's flag and anthem by not going to or watching their games on tv!
