Yesterday, GQ Magazine executives unveiled their pick for “Citizen of the Year, ” and of course, the left-leaning publication whose readership consists mostly of Beta males chose Colin Kaepernick. People across social media ripped into the magazine for picking such a controversial person considering that there were so many others out there that were more worthy of the award. Now, just a day after Kaepernick was given this title he has received some bad news that he could lose the award to someone much more deserving.
For over a year, the left has lauded Colin Kaepernick as some sort of “freedom fighter” that is standing against racial injustice in America. Somehow the irony is lost on these liberals in the mainstream media that Kaepernick is a multi-millionaire who has not suffered an ounce of prejudice in his life. At any rate, the left has propped Kaepernick up as their hero and parade him around despite the fact that he has done nothing to improve race relations in the country.
Evidently, that is all the liberals need though to award someone with the title “Citizen of the Year.”
Thankfully, not everyone in the country agrees with Kaepernick being given this title considering that there are many other people out there that deserve it. One of those people that think this award given to Kaepernick is a sham is former ESPN host Britt McHenry who took to Twitter to point out who she thinks deserves the award more.
McHenry mentions the apparent person that should be celebrated, and I am sure the majority of Americans would agree.
Then McHenry goes right to the crux of the issue and mentions the disgusting socks, communist shirt, offensive statements he and his Muslim girlfriend have made designed to inflame the masses.
However, the best part of McHenry’s entire Twitter thread is when she educated all those who say she doesn’t understand the importance of Kaepernick’s protest.
Here is more from NY Daily News:
Britt McHenry is taking a stand against GQ naming Colin Kaepernick its “Citizen of the Year” for taking a knee.
The former ESPN reporter bashed GQ and Kaepernick on Twitter Monday shortly after the magazine announced it would be honoring the polarizing quarterback.
“Wear socks depicting police officers as pigs; wear Fidel Castro as a fashion statement IN MIAMI; sue NFL for collusion when gf compares owners to slave owners…Win Citizen of the Year. Serve in the US military…nothing. What a joke, GQ. #Kaepernick,” McHenry wrote.
McHenry has frequently criticized Kaepernick for initiating the national anthem protest movement.
McHenry was one of 100 ESPN employees let go by the network in late April. The recognizable sports reporter later said she believed her conservative views had something to do with her firing.
Since being let go by ESPN, McHenry has frequently appeared as a guest on Fox News.
McHenry has also taken to Twitter to voice her conservative views. In recent weeks McHenry has praised Donald Trump, insinuated Hillary Clinton “rigged” the Democratic National Convention and criticized Spurs coach Gregg Popovich for discussing politics in his interviews.
“Colin Kaepernick’s determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson — athletes who risked everything to make a difference,” the editors of GQ wrote.
McHenry later said she does, in fact, understand the underlying reason behind the protests, but believes players such as Malcolm Jenkins and Kenny Stills were more worthy choices.
“For those who think I don’t get the reason for protest you’re wrong,” McHenry wrote. “Eagles Malcolm Jenkins met with lawmakers to help community. Dolphins Kenny Stills met with Miami police. More examples of Citizen of the Year.”
McHenry also said J.J. Watt would have been a better choice for Citizen of the Year. The Texans defensive end raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.
“JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims. 37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right…,” McHenry wrote.
If GQ Magazine truly desired to celebrate someone in America that was doing the right thing, they should have given it to Houston Texans star J.J. Watt, who raised more than $37 million to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey in September. Watts used his platform in the NFL to help people in his community with action but somehow to the left that isn’t the “good citizen” they are looking to applaud.
The left is only concerned with praising people in the media that are willing to tear America apart and not unify it. Kaepernick was chosen since he represents everything that they are and he is the perfect person to manipulate, and he doesn’t even see it. It would be fantastic to see GQ Magazine remove this race-baiter from their cover and give this award to someone who truly deserves it, but that won’t happen until we the people start pushing back even more.
