Santa Clara police threaten to boycott 49ers games in wake of Kaepernick controversy

by FOXNews.com  |  published on September 3, 2016

Authorities in Northern California have threatened to stop working San Francisco 49ers games in response to Colin Kaepernick sitting during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial injustice.

In a letter obtained by KNTV, the Santa Clara police union told the 49ers organization that officers wouldn’t work at the stadium if it doesn’t “take action” against Kaepernick over his protest. The station noted that about 70 Santa Clara police officers work eight home games per year.

“The board of directors of the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association has a duty to protect its members and work to make all of their workings environments free of harassing behavior,” the letter added.

Kaepernick’s decision to sit for the national anthem and to wear socks in practice depicting pigs as cops has drawn much scrutiny from the Santa Clara officers. Police said they are angered and frustrated with the 6-year veteran.

The 49ers released a statement in support of Kaepernick’s freedom of expression as soon as the backlash started to begin.

    If I were a Santa Clara officer…I would have never signed up for that duty in the first place. Who wants to watch a horrible team? UGH!
    As for Kaep…I wouldn’t want to be assigned to work his safety detail. He isn’t worth protecting. If anyone in the ‘Frisco ownership had ANY balls…they’d have cut him. Actually…if they had any brains…they’d have cut him loose 10 minutes after the last game of the season past.

    I want that a*S hole out of my country. This is my land, my country and hes trespassing. Get him the f**k out of here before he gets what he deserves. I would like to see him in the desert just for 1 minute. He will be history in my country. KAEPERNICK, GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY.

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    Atta boy. Refuse to secure their stadium and see how that works for them. That guy needs to get the boot from football and blacklisted.

  • Mike Duncan

    San Francisco 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick, has a new ‘protest’…refusing to stand for America’s national anthem:

    “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

    The 49er’s, of course, came out with an incredibly PC response to this:

    “The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

    Now, the fact that ‘people of color’ have more rights under the law, more freedom and more economic opportunities in America than almost any other country on earth is something I suppose we can just ignore…Colin Kaepernick obviously has!

    And I’m sure Colin Kaepernick’s adoptive family of Typical White People might not want to weigh in on this either.

    But there’s a little more to the story that the media and the NFL will avoid at all costs, because it explains the real reason Mr.Kaepernick has suddenly come out with the idea of inflicting his agenda publicly on the fans. And the media and the NFL have no intention of it coming out if they can help it.

    As the French wisely say, Cherchez la femme, look for the woman.

    In this case, the woman is hip-hop radio personality DJ Nessa Diab. She’s a Berkeley grad, a very dogmatic outspoken Black Lives Matter advocate and a Muslim. She and Colin Kaepernick are engaged, and Kaepernick converted to Islam during the off season.

    The two are reportedly planning what Kaepernick calls ‘a traditional Muslim wedding.’

    Pretty simple…boy meets radical girl, they find they have interests and ideology in common…except, it’s haram, forbidden for a Muslima (a Muslim girl) to marry a non-believer. This is not to say that Kaepernick wasn’t pretty far along the radical path anyway.

    It’s a real love story…not only do they love the same things, but they can hate the same people too. There are certainly a fair amount of patriotic American Muslims, but many Muslims here follow the Quran which says their first loyalty aside from Allah is to the Umma, the worldwide Muslim polity. And no one with much common sense would call the folks at Black Lives Matter remotely patriotic. So it all fits together pretty well.

    Another part of the back story is that both Kaepernick and Nessa Diab have been agitating the 49er’s to trade Kaepernick to New York, where Diab is based. Ideology aside, this might be Kaepernick’s way of adding some fuel to the fire.

    The 49ers have obviously made a business decision to keep Kaepernick on their roster and, with the collusion of the media, to keep this part of the story covered up. That’s fine, but it is a business decision. And although I have to admit that if I felt that way about America I’d vote with my principles and leave, Colin Kaepernick also certainly has the right not to honor the flag of the country that has treated him so well.

    But football fans can also make a decision…like boycotting the 49er’s and any subsequent team they might trade Kaepernick to until he’s history. Now, that’s freedom too, isn’t it? Based on the 49er’s puerile statement, I’m sure they’d agree.

    And then there is this

    • Edward

      Thank you for sharing. This is information not exposed by the DRIVE BY MEDIA. That he has CONVERTED TO ISLAM at the behest of his MUSLIM girlfriend, Nessa Diab is a secret. Wonder if Obama and Hillary know?

    • sam carriage

      Well, after all, we do have a little thing called Due Process, and everyone should have access to it when charged with a crime. Hence, the officers ‘off on paid leave pending investigation’.

      INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!

      You know, kinda like him sitting there collecting his heinous fee to play a child’s game while I’m sure his future is being discussed AsWeType!

  • Roy Fredrichsen

    They need to throw that moron off the team and never let him join another. As a veteran I am apalled he would insult the memory of so many that died defending his rights by being an idiot.

    • Edward

      I agree with the concept and I’m sure that will eventually happen.

  • Rodney Steward

    Better be glad you’re not a White boy, you’d be fined, sit out several games, but you don’t play anyway, then fired, and banned from football for life! But like Obama, your mom was White, and a black dad U probably didn’t know, and was raised by Whites, and what did U turn out to be, a full blown N—-R!!

    • Edward

      Regret your last word. It diminishes everything else you said with which I could agree. A “full blown” IDIOT would have been much better. Besides there are many other adjectives that can be used to describe this NITWIT.

      • Rodney Steward

        It’s one word I never use much, but the whole thing is basically the same way the BLM terrorist group think, and these people are not blacks, they’re just what I called them, there’s a difference between the two!!

        • Edward

          Regret to disagree with you. “MUCH” is too many, even once is one too many. To me they are Americans and BASTARDS (literally and figuratively). These are the people that besmirch the vast majority of Americans, Black Americans. You are distinguishing between these people and the rest of the community but the rest of the community does not see it that way and neither do I. I’m sure you can be classy and find another word to describe these mongrels.There are so many lawbreakers, Black, White, Latino and Oriental and others. What terms would you use for them?

          • Rodney Steward

            Out of all of these, who burns the towns, loots, holler kill cops, pig in a blanket, commits most of the crimes! You must be a teacher or come from a very PC state, we don’t do PC here at all, like I said, I don’t use it unless it’s appropriate! A black man told me the difference between the two! And yes, there is bad in all races!

    • robert sanders

      Hes nothing but a black a*s N****R.

      • Rodney Steward

        🙂 🙂 !!

  • Climax

    Let the 49’ers hire the black community to police the games. I am sure it will be done right and they will be very happy. hahahahahahhaha Sarcasm at it’s finest.

    • Edward

      Not being sarcastic, I’m sure that they can and would do a good job and many of them could use a good job that pays well.

      • Climax

        There you go them, hire locals to do the policing instead of hiring overtime police officers.

        • Edward

          Yes, save on the OVERTIME and provide employment for the black community. I have seen black security people at various clubs and they do a good job and are quite intimidating. Some of them are as big as a refigerator (remember the football player nicknamed “refigerator” Perry. I think he played for the Green Bay Packers, but I could be wrong on that affiliation)

          • mustang6984

            Perry played for the Chicago Bears.

        • sam carriage

          The BLM could possibly work that in their schedule as they are a lovely ‘bunch’ of individuals with high morals and standards. Great idea!

    • sam carriage

      By Joe, I concur .. with all you said!

  • joe

    when are the owner going to speak out and get this SOB out of the team. maybe he can make 114 million in another country

    • Edward

      That is an idea I can support. Don’t know if he appreciates his good fortune. He is going to contribute $1,000,000 million dollars towards some charity (I don’t off hand remember the name of the charity) but remember that they all contribute to charity with TAX DEDUCTIBLE DOLLARS. (basically he is giving 1/2 of HIS money, the other 1/2 is the American Taxpayer.)

      • sam carriage

        to coin a phrase, “At this point, what difference does it make (?) who or what charity he gives to”? I, like a large number of people, never thought much of him before, and don’t think any more than than NOW. I have chosen to not participate in the Idilotry of the elites (sports & enterDetainment activities). This would be just a sampling of “why’ bother. If I don’t care about throwing my money away then why should they?

        p.s. I’m thinking that these other people are ‘just’ giving their opinions and are being ‘monitored and admonished for doing so.

  • Marie Andrews

    Now he’s blaming it on police brutality, before it was no equal opportunity for the minorities. He needs to get his facts straight. I think boycotting the 49er’s and Colin himself is the best thing everyone can do. LIke the saying goes, “What goes around, comes around” hit them in their wallets and see how loyal they are to there crusade

    • Edward

      Boycott the ADVERTISERS that pay MULTI MILLIONS for sponsoring the games, money which pays their salaries. That will do more damage than just boycotting the 49ers. Do both and get quick results. COLIN should get his COLON adjusted.

    • sam carriage

      Oops! Marie, the proper line in the country song says, “what goes around, comes around Baaaby”. which suits this infantile individual mo’ betta.

  • The American

    Colon as the right to protest under our Constitution. Unfortunately, his logic of choosing not to stand for our National Anthem is not the right place. I salute the police for their action in response. The 49ers should now have show us how they feel about America. I refuse to go to any 49er game, watch any 49ers game on TV, or purchase any product sponsoring Colon or the 49ers. Of course if the 49ers are socialists/Communists/Democrats they will do nothing. Let’s see!!!

    • 7papa7

      I would like to see the guards and tackles just allow the defense through to nail cupacrap whenever he is playing. It would be nice if they damaged him so that he could never play again. He isn’t any good anyway so that way SF would not have to fire him and make it a political thing.

      • Edward

        Regret the way you propose to deal with this IDIOT. Just to have him sit on the bench the entire season and get the BOOS from the crowd.

        • 7papa7

          My point is to make sure is hurt so that his career is ended and if he can’t play the team can keep him off the field.
