I completely disagree with you. Comparing Kaepernick an athlete who made his statement at his employer’s place of business and on company time and forced people to watch it does not equate to a singer that did it on his own time.
Now, Swift and West are both singers, both made political statement - this is an exact apples to apples comparison - and West was savaged by the MSM and Hollywood even including racial slurs by a host of CNN. In contrast, the MSM and Hollywood applauded Swift for making also a similar political statement.
Again, this is textbook apples to apples comparison and if you don’t see it you are blinder than a .
Maybe you don’t like the content of Kanye’s message any more than conservatives like Swift message but I just did not see any criticism of her from the MSM or Hollywood like it criticized Kanye and I did not see any conservatives calling her names or using racial slurs either…even Trump mildly indicated that he likes her now 25% less…
I did not criticize Swift, I thought she has the right to express her opinion like any other citizen and so does West.
I did not criticize Kaepernick for demonstrating either, he has the right to do it on his own time and not on company’s time or at his employer’s place of business where he does not have that right…as many, many , many legal scholars made it abundantly clear…and before you accuse m, once again of making legal claims, I am not, I am just quoting what actual constitutional attorneys said, including know lefty Dershowitz, which can be easily verified by a quick Google search.
I also praised those players that took the time to meet with police and go to Congress to testify since they had at least the desire to try to find solutions. Like most liberals Kaepernick did not do any of that, instead, in his few public appearances he insulted police officers and praised Castro and Chavez, two totalitarian dictators. It is obvious he did not want a solution, he wanted an issue and publicity…and he got both and a big payoff to boot.
