A Cuban born anti-communist activist is calling San Francisco 49'ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick to task for complaining about oppression in the United States while wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt.
Kaepernick has been the big story of the NFL preseason, but not because of what he has done on the field. He has dominated the news because of his refusal to stand during the national anthem as a protest against what he perceives as oppression against blacks in the United States.
But at a recent news conference, Kaepernick wore a t-shirt emblazoned with the image of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Humberto Fontova, who fled Cuba in 1961 and has written several books about the communist regime, says Kaepernick’s take on the issue of oppression is laden with ignorance.
"The ironies are so rich,” Fontova pointed out. “He's standing against oppression. He's idolizing on his shirt on of the biggest oppressors in modern history.
Fontova argues that Kaepernick’s Leftist spin on the issue leading him to play the race card is indicative of the racially divisive curriculum agenda promoted and taught in public education, which is often dubbed “multiculturalism.”
“And it says a lot about modern U.S. education, that though he is college educated, he has a made a complete idiot of himself in the eyes of the few people in the U.S. who are actually well educated on this matter," he continued.
Fontova asserts that Kaepernick complains about the killing of blacks by police in the United States without knowing the history of Castro's secret police.
"Fidel Castro's secret police and death squads murdered more political prisoners in their first three years in power than Hitler's Gestapo murdered in its first six years," Fontova pointed out.
