Of all the outrageous reactions leftist celebrities and Democrats had over the killing of Soleimani, Colin Kaepernick may have just taken home the award for the most overblown response.
In case you missed it, Kaepernick labeled the airstrike that killed the Iranian terrorist one of the (apparently many in Kaepernick’s eyes) “American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people.”
Here’s Kaepernick’s tweets following the death of Soleimani:
Lindsey Graham wasn't gonna hear such nonsense from Kapernick and held nothing back during his appearance on Fox News Sunday,
"He’s a loser on and off the field... He’s a racist. If you’re looking for racism in America, Mr. Kaepernick, look in the mirror."
Listen to Graham's harsh words for Kapernick here:
Graham wasn't alone in criticizing Kapernick's depiction of the Soleimani killing as a "terrorist attack."
Take a look at these tweets slamming Kapernick here:
Marketwatch has more to say on Graham's response to Kapernick:
Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t hold back on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” when asked about two high-profile Trump critics who recently sounded off against the president’s move to take out Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani.
On Colin Kaerpernick:‘He’s a loser on and off the field... He’s a racist. If you’re looking for racism in America, Mr. Kaepernick, look in the mirror.’
And his take on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who called out Trump as ‘a monster’ who is committing war crimes:‘AOC doesn’t know anything about the law of armed conflict, obviously.’Graham’s slam of Kaepernick came in response to this tweet from Saturday, in which the former NFL quarterback suggested the attacks are just another chapter in America’s ”plundering” of “black and brown people”
Mediaite also said:
Bartiromo asked Graham to respond to how Kaepernick condemned the strike by saying “There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.” The former NFL quarterback-turned-Nike spokesperson has drawn a great deal of flak for those tweeted remarks, and Graham didn’t hesitate to call Kaepernick “a loser on and off the field.”
“He has no idea what the Iranian regime has done to the region. He has no idea they have 600 American deaths as a result of IEDs made in Iran, used in Iraq. It is un-American. He’s a racist. If you are looking for racism in America, Mr. Kaepernick, look in the mirror. Your country is not the problem, it’s the Iranians, and you’re so blinded by your hatred of Trump that you can’t see the difference between who we are and who the Ayatollah is. Pretty sad.”
