Listen to the Cuban reporter who interviewed him. Kaepernick has the right to be a vicious, radical leftist but we don’t have to like him.
The 49ers led by America-hating QB Colin Kaepernick, who routinely kneels during the Anthem, lost Sunday’s game to the Miami Dolphins 31-24 after a non-ending chorus of boos from the stands throughout the game. Kaepernick praised Fidel Castro hours before his death and justified wearing a shirt bearing the brutal dictator’s face.
The San Francisco 49ers set an all-time franchise record of 10 straight losses under the widely-despised QB who becomes a free agent next March.
It was only hours before Fidel Castro’s death that Colin Kaepernick gave an interview praising the brutal dictator who is reviled by the overwhelming majority of Cubans in Florida.
His comments are being described as ill-timed but when is a good time to heap praise on a vicious dictator who murdered his own people?
The fans booed him loudly non-stop and that is becoming commonplace.
Kaepernick didn’t back down but tried to explain himself away, saying the communist tyrant’s education and healthcare for all was what he was praising. He claimed Castro spent more on schools than prisons.
Kaepernick said he appreciated Castro’s willingness to be open-minded and saying Cuba reportedly has a high literacy rate.
“What I said was that I agree with the investment in education,” he said. “I also agree with the investment in free universal health care, as well as the involvement in him helping end apartheid in South Africa.”
He claimed he wasn’t supporting his oppression of the Cuban people, however, he had said Castro was “investing” more on education than prisons.

Next is part of the exchange with the local reporter.
On Wednesday, Kaepernick told The Palm Beach Post that his choice of a t-shirt bearing Castro’s image back in August did not mean he sided with his oppressive regime.
When the reporter, who hasn’t been named, pressed Kaepernick specifically on Castro’s history of oppression, he replied: “One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”
The reporter replied: “He also did something that we do not do here: he broke up families, he took over a country without any justice and without any election”.
Kaepernick said unapologetically, revealing his feelings about his country, “We do break up families here. That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of native Americans.”
When the reporter asked whether Kaepernick was equating the breaking up of Cuban families with people going to jail in the United States, Kaepernick said: “I’m equating the breaking up of families with the breaking up of families.”
After a brief silence, the reporter replied: “Wow. That’s amazing.”
Here’s the reporter:
Kaepernick, who wore a hat with an ‘X’ on it along with the T-shirt, initially insisted he had worn the T-shirt specifically as a tribute to Malcolm X.
The T-shirt features several photos of Malcolm X and Castro talking, with the caption: “Like minds think alike.” No matter what Kaepernick says in the way of an excuse, we know what he thinks too.
Maybe Kaepernick was poorly educated or he’s listening too much to his radical girlfriend.
The documentary below doesn’t mention that the Castro brothers were members of the Communist Party in college. They always planned a Communist state.
While his people starved, Castro lived a life of luxury obtained from drug trafficking. His carefully-crafted image was of a leader living humbly and poorly.
“While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort — keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret,” wrote Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, Castro’s longtime bodyguard.
Sanchez’s book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to El Líder Maximo,” describes his former boss’ hidden life of political ruthlessness, mistresses and greed.
