Anything that the liberal left does should not surprise me anymore, but I am sort of surprised by this. The Liberal magazine GQ named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as its “Citizen of the Year” and not Houston Texans Defensive End J.J. Watt.
The reason why I said J.J Watt should have been citizen of the year is because when Hurricane Harvey devastated the city of Houston Texas, Watt opened a modest online fundraising campaign on the fundraising site YouCaring.com. With a pledge of $100,000 of his own money and a goal of $200,000 and a video plea, the Texans’ star player just wanted to give back to the city that be played for.
But the liberal left called Kaepernick its citizen of the year for refusing to stand for our national anthem and starting this sickening protest a year ago. GQ ran a feature on the very controversial athlete entitled “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced.” This article was nothing but liberal love fest to Kaepernick who honestly gotten more attention in his post football career then ne did when he played in the National Football League. Here is an excerpt from the article.
“Colin also made it clear to us that he intended to remain silent. As his public identity has begun to shift from football star to embattled activist, he has grown wise to the power of his silence. It has helped his story go around the world. It has even provoked the ire and ill temper of [President] Donald Trump.”
To show how desperate Kaepernick is, he filed grievance in October stating that the NFL owners had conspired together to keep him unsigned because of his kneeing protest. This grievance is so ludicrous because of the poor stats that Kaepernick had as quarterback and that he opted out of his contract with the 49ers back in March 2017.
So tell me who you consider as Citizen Of The Year, the athlete that turned a fading athletic career into a platform that is celebrated by leftists or the athlete that raised $37 Million for Hurricane Harvey victims.
I know who my choice is J.J. Watt who respects the country that has allowed him to earn millions of dollars to play a game. Most people would call Watt the citizen of the year of the two. But then again the Liberal Left is not normal.
