Kaepernick participates in ‘Unthanksgiving Day’ on Alcatraz

Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, took part Thursday in the annual Unthanksgiving Day on Alcatraz.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Kaepernick made the surprise appearance at the event that commemorates the nine-month occupation of the prison by Native American activists from 1969-1971.

“Our fight is the same fight,” Kaepernick told the crowd, in a message he posted on Twitter. “We’re all fighting for our justice, for our freedom. And realizing that we are all in this fight together makes us all the more powerful.”

    If he really meant that he’d be in North Korea spreading the word.

      Kaepernick makes the choice.

      Kaepernick = fool.

        Nah, he was a shit quarterback the last couple years from all accounts, he just exacerbated the problem with his protesting. I have heard many say he ‘might’ have been signed as a backup to some second string team.

    “Unthanksgiving day”. Now that’s a concept which will go far with everyday Americans.

    “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad”.

    The Greeks recognized mental illness 2500 years ago and had some memorable things to say about it,

    However, my favourite observation on the condition comes more recently from the controversial Scottish psychiatrist, RD Laing who claims that schizophrenia is a perfectly rational response to an insane situation. I believe we live in such times.

    This brain-dead idiot has had his head hit far too many times – the brain damage is massive and permanent. Do not expect him to say or do anything intelligent

        I loved those guys. Saw them live at The Chimney in Toronto in the 70’s.
