Sports Illustrated named the ungrateful, disrespectful Colin Kaepernick “winner” of its 2017 Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. It’s very fitting.
Evil people honor their own – usually the worst among them. That’s how Barack Hussein Obama became the first black president. It’s why Obama invited wicked people like Al Sharpton and activists with Black Lives Matter (a hate group worse than the KKK) to the White House. Thank God that President Trump is cleaning out the trash now!
But the former football player Colin Kaepernick repeats the same lies and hatred toward whites, police and America that we heard from the late Muhammad Ali. Like Ali, Colin misleads young, black children who look up to him, and he calls it “love.”
For all of Muhammad Ali’s talent in boxing, and his charismatic front, he was an empty shell, consumed by anger and judgment that turned him away from his real identity, away from the truth. He became a pawn for evil.
I write about Muhammad Ali’s life in my book “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood.”
Ali’s real name was Cassius Clay, the great grandson of an Irishman who married a black woman after the Civil War. Another white great-grandfather fought for the Union in the Civil War. But Clay joined a fake “religion” called the Nation of Islam, or NOI. He rejected his white great-grandparents and changed his name, repeating a lie, “If slaveholder Clay’s blood came into our veins along with the name, it came by rape and defilement.”
Angry blacks commonly claim white slave masters “raped” their black ancestors when they don’t even know. Ali’s mentor, Malcolm X, told his biographer, “I learned to hate every drop of that white rapist’s blood that is in me.” I don’t know if Malcolm was telling the truth, but I’ve interviewed and counseled people conceived by “rape.” If you do not forgive even the rapist, you will suffer and never know God.
A follower who couldn’t think for himself, Ali hid behind his “religion” and the phony cry of “racism” to resist being drafted in 1967, saying, “My enemies are white people, not the Viet Congs (sic).” He accused whites of opposing his “freedom,” “justice” and “equality.” He called the Vietnam War “the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over.” He repeated his hatred toward America, “The real enemy of my people is here.” And he blindly said: “So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”
Muhammad Ali was not a good or strong person. He betrayed his friend, Malcolm X, when the corrupt NOI, including Louis Farrakhan, claimed Malcolm X was “worthy of death.”
Ali and the liberal media painted Joe Frazier as an “Uncle Tom” and won the young, angry blacks to Ali’s side with his draft resistance and attacks on white America.
By the mid-to-late 1960s, black out-of-wedlock births had climbed to crisis levels at 25 percent. Black crime and radicalism were on the rise in the cities, with riots and hatred toward whites, authority and one another. The violent Black Panthers and other gangs intimidated and fought with others, committed crimes, but pretended to work for the good of black people.
White police officers weren’t blacks’ problem in the ’60s, and they aren’t blacks’ problem today. But the naive Ali said, “[S]o-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights[.]”
Colin Kaepernick, another weak and impressionable male, leveled similar false accusations against the country and against police – in this case, cheered on by his phony “social justice”-oriented girlfriend. Kaepernick said he won’t honor a country that “oppresses black people and people of color.” He spreads the liberal mainstream media lie against police: “There are bodies in the street, and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” Not true.
In his warped and misled mind, he thinks and pretends he’s doing good. But deep down, he knows he’s wrong. He’s driven by resentment and judgment. He gives money to “social justice” causes that pretend to help kids but push the lie of “racism.” When you’re angry, you believe a lie.
Today, black out-of-wedlock births are reportedly over 70 percent. Blacks abort nearly one in three pregnancies. They’re three times as likely to be felons, six times as likely to commit murder, and more than five times as likely to kill police as whites, per capita, according to the FBI. Look at any liberal-run ghetto and see: Blacks’ immorality and lack of good, married fathers is their problem, and not so-called “police brutality.”
Kaepernick’s black father left his 19-year-old white mother before he was born. He grew up in a white adoptive family in white neighborhoods, talented and doing well in school. But he is empty and lost, as everyone can see today. He lacks his real identity from his father and, ultimately, God. So he put on a false identity of “blackness” and the masquerade of “social justice” like so many fatherless souls today.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is the most courageous, outspoken critic of the so-called “social justice” movements in America today. Raised without his father on a plantation near Tuskegee, Alabama during the Jim Crow era, Peterson has lived a part of America’s history few have experienced. After a spiritual transformation, Peterson founded BOND, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.” He’s a radio talk show host, speaker, and author of "The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood;" also "SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America, and From Rage to Responsibility."
