It appears Colin Kaepernick wants to double down on his disgusting rhetoric. First it was being anti-American by sitting for the National Anthem. And now he is being anti-Cop.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback addressed the picture with an Instagram post Thursday morning writing, “I wore these socks, in the past, because the rogue cops that are allowed to hold positions in police departments, not only put the community in danger, but also put the cops that have the right intentions in danger by creating an environment of tension and mistruct.”
Kaepernick said he started wearing the socks before sitting down during the national anthem prior to the 49ers’ preseason games this year in order to protest social injustice.
“There is police brutality,” the quarterback said. “People of color have been targeted by police. So that’s a large part of it, and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher.”
Kaepernick is actually convinced a pair of offensive socks will make a difference. What a genius.
