On Friday, former San Francisco quarterback and multi-millionaire racial activist Colin Kaepernick announced a new fund to pay for the legal fees of rioters, whom he dubbed “freedom fighters,” destroying often low-income communities and committing acts of violence.

“In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation,” Kaepernick posted to Twitter on Friday. “We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by [Your Rights Camp],” an organization founded by the former QB.

A day before the post, Kaepernick publicly called to reject civility and embrace a “revolution.”

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” he wrote. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”

Kaepernick is not alone in promoting financial assistance to criminal rioters, unfortunately.

Politicians like failed presidential candidate Julián Castro, open socialist New York City Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have all solicited donations to ActBlue, a charity which enables donations be made to “bail funds,” according to The New York Times.

Here’s an extended list of celebrities and politicians who’ve donated or solicited donations for bail money to such criminals.Chrissy TeigenTeigen promised $200,000 as bail money for criminal rioters, posting to Twitter: “In celebration of whatever the f*** maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country. The supermodel later upped it to $200,000: “Ooo they might need more money then. Make it $200,000,” she wrote.Steve Carell Carell promised $1,000 to the rioters’ bail via a donation to the “Minnesota Freedom Fund.”According to The New York Times, the fund brought in a whopping $20 million in four days.Seth RoganRogan promised $1,000 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.Janelle MonaeMonae promised $1,000 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.Don CheadleCheadle promised $1,000 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

    Is he still the face of Nike? When do people learn that he is one of the most un-American HAS-Been athletes ever. He should NOT be the face of such a well known product …. stop buying it … start putting your money towards American Industry that gives a shit about the average American. So it is okay with him and Nike that average Americans are hurting because of ONE really bad cop and his 3 Cronies…. WTF people … WAKE UP!

    I’d like to see this A-hole right in the middle of the riots not off to the side and see how he likes them. Oh wait — he’s used to being off to the side — sitting the bench watching others.
