Harvard Will Award Colin Kaepernick a Medal

If an athlete wants fame and accolades in a society dominated by progressives, the way to get them is not on the field but on the sidelines. Consider the example set by Colin Kaepernick. He was an obscure benchwarmer when he began indulging in theatrical displays of disrespect in response to the national anthem, undermining a precious ritual the helps hold the country together in divisive times. Consequently, Nike is plastering his homely face all over the place, together with propaganda spinning the lowlife as a hero. For openly despising his country and siding with criminals against the police, GQ named him Citizen of the Year. Harvard, the nation’s most prestigious university, has even awarded Kaepernick a medal, like the war heroes he spits on by refusing to respect the flag receive. Kaepernick…

…will receive the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal at the Hutchins Center Honors in Cambridge on Oct. 11. It’s described as “Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African American studies.”

Whether Kaepernick can even read is probably irrelevant regarding his scholarly contribution to the vital field of African and African American studies.

Fittingly, W.E.B. Du Bois was a member of the Communist Party USA who called the USSR slave state “the most hopeful vehicle for the world.” To revere him is to despise freedom and everything else America stands for.

A press release from Harvard recognized Kaepernick’s $1 million donation to charities serving oppressed communities.

Among the charities upon which Kaepernick bestows his benevolence is Assata’s Daughters, to which his foundation has given at least $25,000. It is named in honor of Joanne Chesimard (a.k.a. Assata Shakur), a communist black supremacist who has been hiding out in Cuba after murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and then escaping from prison.

Assata’s Daughters states that its mission is “the abolition of prisons, police and anti-blackness itself.” “Anti-blackness” can be defined as any opposition to the radical black supremacist ideology Colin Kaepernick emerged from obscurity by embracing.

Like nonprofits, “charities” are not necessarily benevolent.

You won’t see Harvard grant posthumous awards to a football player who really is a hero, like Pat Tillman, who gave up a lucrative NFL contract to fight for his country in Afghanistan, where he was killed. When it comes to the military, Harvard named Bradley Manning a “visiting fellow” in honor of his having committed 750,000 acts of treason in the largest intelligence leak in US history (although outrage forced Harvard to back down in the face of calls to cut off federal funding).

The more contemptible and pernicious the scoundrel, the more likely he is to be honored in the upside-down, morally depraved realm of the liberal elite. A culture so twisted as to reject heroes elevates antiheroes instead.

On a tip from 1-Bodhisattva.
