Quote of the Day: Kaepernick is either ignorant or a radical on Cuba’s murderous Castro dictatorship

Cuban American Miami Herald sports columnist Armando Salguero didn’t mince words when Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis asks him: “What do you think about ESPN giving Colin Kaepernick millions of dollars to tell his story when you know that he is spreading falsehoods about Fidel Castro and Cuba, and arguing that the United States should follow Cuba’s lead when it comes to human rights?

Salguero’s response is our Quote of the Day:

“It’s not really about Cuba, it’s about Colin Kaepernick not knowing what the hell he’s talking about. Either that, or he’s just a radical, radical person who just hates this country. I wish I didn’t believe the latter, and rather would believe that he hasn’t educated himself, but I have a sense that it is the latter.”

  1. Kaepernick is one of the world’s leading performance artists, as such artists go–and let’s face it, he managed to substitute what would have been only a brief and inglorious football career with a considerably more, uh, rewarding gig. I expect even Harry Belafonte is impressed.

    As far as his Cuba stance goes, he’s no worse than far more exalted figures like Malcolm X and Mandela–and besides, it would appear to be a black American thing, so he’s perfectly “correct.”

  2. Again, this is nothing new or unusual. People have been stupidly or maliciously misrepresenting Cuba’s reality for ages, and I mean LOTS of people. The practice is completely “normalized” and quite safe.

  3. Kaepernick aside, we really MUST stop treating celebrities as any more than they are, which is basically entirely dispensable ENTERTAINERS. I sure as hell don’t need them, not even for entertainment.
