Kaepernick thanks protesting Miami Dolphins players for their "unwavering strength."
Colin Kaepernick has tweeted to thank the Miami Dolphins players that kneeled before the NFL anthem this weekend. The NFL ruled to limit "resistance" movements to the dressing room, by allowing players to join their teammates on the field after the National Anthem. Only Kenny Stills and Albert Watson chose to defy that ruling right from the onset.
Kaepernick thanked "his brothers" for continuing to show "unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed." The former 49ers quarterback did not lack any verve as he spoke in his "assumed political office," as a discarded freedom fighter. "They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. Their courage will move the world forward," he remarked of his former NFL colleagues.
Hours before Kaepernick submitted his Thank You tweet, Donald Trump jumped onto the platform to remind folks of his stance. He blamed the poor ratings in Monday's NFL Opener between the Falcons and Eagles, on players taking a knee throughout the year. Fellow "boycotted" NFL player Eric Reid coordinated an identical tweet with the same body of text as Kaepernick. Reid has an active role in Colin Kaerpernick's collusion case against the league. They both share the same legal team based out of New York City.
