Leftists have turned Colin Kaepernick into a folk hero.

The former quarterback’s greatest claim to fame is hating America, the radical Left’s favorite pastime.

Now celebrities are promoting one insane message about Kaepernick.

Everyone should’ve seen it coming that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would become a legend in leftist circles after starting the anti-American anthem protests that spread throughout the NFL.

The more radical Kaepernick gets, the more they love him.

And a United Nations diplomat named Mohamad Safa tweeted, “I want to live in a country where Colin Kaepernick is seen as a hero and Kyle Rittenhouse is seen as a terrorist,” which turned into a mantra when other blue checkmark leftists echoed the message.

Filmmaker Morgan J. Freeman (not the actor) posted the same message, and celebrities like Star Trek alums George Takei and LeVar Burton did the same:

This sentiment really shows just how insane the Left has become.

Rittenhouse was seen on video defending properties from looters and even rendering first aid to protesters during the way.

At nightfall, the more violent rioters descended on the community.

They tried to push a burning dumpster toward a gas station, but Rittenhouse put out the fire with a fire extinguisher.

That’s when the rioters got mad at Rittenhouse, chased him, and one of them threw what looked like a molotov cocktail at him.

Rittenhouse was shot at, then returned fire.

He ran away toward the police, and was chased by Antifa goons.

Even The New York Times showed video evidence that Rittenhouse was attacked by rioters before running away and defending himself.

But in the leftist worldview where good is bad and down is up, Rittenhouse is the terrorist for defending property against terrorists.

Antifa has literally been designated a domestic terrorist organization by the Department of Justice.

These people that believe Kaepernick is a hero should try living in an authoritarian leftist country and see how well it goes for them when they exercise free speech that the state doesn’t like.
