The Color of Patriotism

In Culture, Foreign Policy, Front Page, World News by Allen West

We have all seen and heard the abjectly disturbing, disconcerting, deranged, and delusional responses from the progressive socialist left over the drone strike that killed the leader of the designated Islamic terrorist organization, the Quds Force, General Qasem Soleimani. Some of the assertions are truly telling about the left, the same ones who did a cover shot on Rolling Stone of the Boston Marathon Islamic jihadist, Dzokhar Tsarnaev. Referring to Soleimani as a foreign official, esteemed and revered General, military strategist, and sadly, a dashingly handsome man should anger true Americans.

I have met several of our warriors who lost limbs due to the explosive force penetrators (EFPs) that Soleimani had a hand in producing and exporting to Islamic jihadists, terrorists, in Iraq. The fact that we have leftists, the same ones supporting the impeachment of President Trump as a national security threat, feigning anger over not being “consulted” in the matter of this strike is ludicrous. These same useful idiots said and did nothing when Barack Obama was launching over 500 drones, and left Americans to die in an Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi. For CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to have the disgraced Susan Rice on to discuss President Trump’s response by killing Soleimani, after his orchestrating the attack on our Embassy in Baghdad is utterly laughable.

We are living in the age of political hypocrisy that is unconscionable.

However, of all the responses to the Qasem Soleimani drone strike, none other takes the crown than the one from failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

As reported by Townhall:

“Following President Trump’s decision to take out Qasem Soleimani, Kaepernick tweeted, “[there] is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.”  Kaepernick then tweeted that America “has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad” and accused America of plundering the “non-white world.” Kaepernick feels solidarity to a murderous monster like Soleimani simply because of the terrorist’s skin color. There’s no telling how bad the athlete’s recent tweets about the death of terrorist Qasem Soleimani would have hurt the National Football League’s ratings.”

It is apparent that Kaepernick knows that he will never be returning to the NFL, and this stupidity certainly sealed that fate.

Kaepernick must have had a few too many hits to the head. For him to proclaim allegiance, comradeship, with someone because of their skin color, regardless of their acts of terrorism is beyond belief. I would suppose Kaepernick aligns himself with Al Shabab and Boko Haram as well? What angers me more than anything, Kaepernick issues a slap in the face to the black and Hispanic Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who lost their lives and their limbs because of the EFP IEDs supplied by Soleimani . . . not to mention how many of our warriors were killed by Soleimani’s Quds Force in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Syria.

The color of patriotism, for #Kaepernick, is aligned with anyone, and I mean anyone, that is an enemy of these United States of America. #Iran #Soleimani Click To Tweet

The color of patriotism, for Kaepernick, is aligned with anyone, and I mean anyone, that is an enemy of these United States of America. No, we cannot deport, exile, or punch Kaepernick, he does have a first amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. Sadly, this chucklehead does not realize that the black and brown men and women of our armed forces support and defend that right for him. He would prefer to use it to support an evil Islamic terrorist who would kill the defenders of our Constitution . . . and, indeed, has.

Colin Kaepernick is a disgrace, and the reason I will never wear anything Nike. As well, Kaepernick is the reason the progressive socialist left will be resoundingly defeated later this year. Anyone that will come out and support these comments, these un-American comments, are a disgrace as well.

However, in humility, as a Christian, I will offer Colin Kaepernick this counsel from Proverbs 17:28 (New International Version), “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.”
