Colin Kaepernick has some thoughts on the United States taking out a top Iranian officer with a drone strike … calling classic American imperialism via our military.
The ex-NFL quarterback posted some scathing remarks Saturday about the international move that’s got everyone here at home worried about a so-called World War III — and he didn’t hold back in criticizing it to the max, likening it to an attack on people of color.
Colin wrote on Twitter, “There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.” He didn’t stop there.
CK adds the perceived escalation of tensions has been resorted to in the U.S.A.’s playbook time and again. He says, “America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.”
Trump’s order to kill Qasem Soleimani has gotten mixed reactions — with some calling it necessary and imminent, as the guy is said to have been responsible for taking American lives while waging destructive and deadly tactics there in the Middle East and elsewhere.
Others say Donald Trump’s administration acted in haste by signing off on the strike, not considering the ramifications and the possibility of war. Congress hasn’t even been formally briefed yet!
Either way, it’s clear where Kap stands on this one … and it’s not with the White House.
