Bleacher Report: As the criticism of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick crests, it seems some have taken notice to another form of silent protest that he’s displayed at team practices. Philip Lewis of Mic highlighted Kaepernick wearing socks that depict officers as pigs, a long-standing derogatory term for police:

How is this idiot still employed by the San Francisco 49ers? Refusing to stand for the anthem is one thing, but this is just him being a dickhead for the purpose of being a dickhead. I mean, calling cops “pigs” is what you do when you’re a 19 year old emo skater who hates their Dad. It’s juvenile.
All I heard from the mainstream media after he announced that he wasn’t gonna stand because America is oppressing black people was how brave he was, and what a dignified reason he gave. Newsflash idiots – there was nothing well thought out or dignified about his thought process. He’s no different than some 20 year old “anarchist” from Clark University taking to the streets and whining about oppression.
And the worst part is that he did it all for a chick. This all started once he started dating his “activist” DJ of a push cushion. Look how much he’s changed since he started dating her:
“Kaepernick has posted 170 photos or videos on his Instagram account in the four years since he created it. Most of his first 128 posts were pics of him in football gear, publicity photos or shots taken with friends. But 31 of his last 42 posts have strong social justice connotations, often featuring quotes from radical Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X, Black Panthers founder Huey Newton and cop killer Assata Shakur. During a Sunday news conference about the flag flap, Kaepernick dressed in a black hat with a large, white “X” and a T-shirt that featured photos of Cuban despot Fidel Castro and Malcolm X.”
Back in the day this was commonly referred to as “pussy whipped.” It was one thing when you were 18 and a girl controlled you, because you didn’t know any better. But this is a 28 year old millionaire who can have ANY woman he wants to, and he just allowed some floozy DJ to completely change who he is and what he’s all about. He used to be the next big thing, destined to lead the 49ers to past greatness. Now he’s her bitch/sock puppet who dances whatever dance she tells him to. What a complete loser.
And by the way, just to show you what a shitty, worthless, PC site Barstool Sports has become after they were bought out by Chernin Group, check out their take on it.
Gotta hand it to ole Colin here. Most people back down in the face of backlash from the likes of Larry The Cable Guy and Jay Gruden. Not Colin. He’s still swinging at the establishment and this time he’s using his socks to speak. Bold. Hardliners on both sides are going to use these pictures to make their points. It’s such an incredibly stupid cycle that we continuously weave. Our biases are so strong that both sides can use the same exact picture to further their argument on how Colin is either brave or an idiot.
“See! Colin is an idiot. He doesn’t respect anyone. He’s just doing this for attention.”
“Colin really isn’t backing down. Good for him!”
What the fuck did I just read? Is this the Huffington Post? This is how you blog about something without actually sharing an opinion about it, which seems to completely defeat the purpose of reading a blog.
Too bad, because Turtleboy grew up reading Barstool Sports. It was a great blog for a long time because they weren’t afraid to say what everyone else was thinking but couldn’t say, and they could give a shit less who the offended. They revolutionized blogging. That was the beauty of it. But now they’re filled with PC takes like that. Refusing to call Kaepernick out for being the asshole that he is because their corporate ownership won’t allow it. This is why we will never, ever, ever sellout at Turtleboy Sports. We make enough to get by, and the message we’re sending is just too important to sell out for.
Seriously though, how can any self respecting person possibly root for the 49ers at this point? The fact that this asshat gets to play while Tom Brady has to sit because science made his balls slightly less inflated is enraging.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
