Conservative lawmaker Lindsey Graham didn’t waste any time responding to Colin Kaepernick’s latest desperate cry for attention. The left-leaning quasi-celebrity is convinced that the only reason one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists was eliminated was because he wasn’t white.
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.

“He’s a loser on and off the field,” Graham told Fox News on Sunday. “He’s a racist.” The Senator from South Carolina then advised , “if you’re looking for racism in America, Mr. Kaepernick, look in the mirror.”
If Mr. Kaepernick would turn away from CNN once in a while, he might learn what the rest of the world already knows. That Qassem Soleimani was an evil man, determined to kill Americans.
To the disgraced athlete, the might of the United States military was called in to “sanction” and “besiege” black and brown bodies to “plunder” the “non-white world.” What he doesn’t want to even think about are the facts.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made it clear to ABC reporters on Sunday that all the senior leaders were in total agreement with the air strike on the military commander’s convoy outside the Baghdad airport.
“The intelligence assessment made clear that no action – allowing Soleimani to continue his plotting and his planning, his terror campaign – created more risk than taking the action that we took last week.”
Pompeo spelled out in detail how the drone strike was used to prevent an “imminent attack” and that the Iranian General had been “directing the killing of Americans for years,” Reuters reports. “This was a bad guy. We took him from the battlefield. We saw that he was plotting further plans to take down Americans, in some cases many Americans.”
Everybody knows that the Iranians are trying to show clean hands by using mercenaries to do their dirty work for them. Pompeo insists that the administration won’t stand for it.
“We’ve told the Iranian regime: enough. You can’t get away with using proxy forces and think your homeland will be safe and secure. we’re going to respond against the actual decision-makers — the people who are causing this threat from the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell also supported President Donald Trump’s decision, telling reporters on Friday that “no man alive was more directly responsible for the deaths of more American service members than Qassem Soleimani.”
Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick struggles to find work. He settled his claim against the league but as noted by The Guardian, “a recent workout in front of NFL scouts has not led to any formal job offers.”
