Colin Kaepernick Halloween Costume
Interesting how the left believes they only have the right to protest anyway they deem effective.
The Daily Caller is reporting on a police officer, Antonio Gutierrez, from the University of Nevada who decided to dress up as Colin Kaepernick for a Halloween party. What is the significance of the University of Nevada, that is where Colin when to college and played footbal.
The police officer is seen in a Twitter picture wearing a Kaepernick football jersey he made, a fake nose, an afro and a “will stand for food” sign.
Nice touch on the “will stand for food” sign, which is the funniest part of the costume. Why did he wear a sign “will stand for food”, because Colin has not been employed as a football player for the last couple of years. Although he made plenty of money before that.
You must remember why Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem, as quoted in an August 27, 2016 interview in Sports Illustrated:
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.
He was protesting against our flag, America and the police forces in our country.
After the photo of him in his costume made its way around the internet, the chief of the University of Nevada, Reno Police Department felt the need to apologize on behalf of Officer Gutierrez. He is quoted in a statement saying:
For those who have seen the Halloween costume of one of our officers apparently mocking a citizen who has chosen to take advantage of his constitutional right to protest, I offer my sincere apologies. Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another — on or off duty — is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack of understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted.
So police officers are held to a higher standard when it comes to being “professional” in something like wearing a Halloween costume off duty and “professional” football players and others are not, interesting.
Do you feel the Chief of Police need to apologize?
When is the left going to realize they are not the only ones in American who have rights?
