The Questionable Charity That Just Received $25,000 From Colin Kaepernick

Since no one wanted Colin Kaepernick’s NFL contract this season, there will be no cameras on him as he kneels for the national anthem and so he has set his sights on more productive means of trying to “make a difference.”

He recently pledged $1 million to “organizations working in oppressed communities as part of his mission to remain culturally relevant as long as he possibly can, but some of this money is going to a charity that was founded in honor of a legitimate cop killer. 

Assata’s Daughters, a self-described “direct action resistance organization” founded in Chicago (sounds like the way Central American guerillas describe themselves) recently received $25,000 from the Kaepernick’s Foundation.

Here’s the thing: Assata Shakur, the group’s namesake, was found guilty in 1979 for the slaying of a police officer during a routine traffic stop in New Jersey. She was a member of the Black Liberation Army, and although she was apprehended and convicted for the crime, she escaped from prison with the help of BLA members and is still a wanted fugitive.

The Guardian explains:

In the early hours of 2 May 1973, Assata Shakur was stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike by a state trooper named James Harper, allegedly for driving with a faulty rearlight. In the car with Shakur were fellow Black Liberation Army (BLA) members Zayd Malik Shakur and Sundiata Acoli. In a second patrol car was Trooper Werner Foerster.

Minutes after they pulled over, both Zayd Malik Shakur and Trooper Foerster were dead, and Assata and Trooper Harper were shot and wounded. In 1977, Shakur was convicted on one murder charge and six assault charges and sentenced to life in prison. She escaped in 1979 with the assistance of BLA members posing as visitors, and has been a fugitive ever since.

The group’s website explains that it was founded in 2015 to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.” The group strives to “prioritize this work to help the current momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement to carry on into the future.”

Assata currently lives in Cuba where she was granted political asylum by the Castro regime. She has referred to Cuba as “One of the Largest, Most Resistant and Most Courageous Palenques (Maroon Camps) that has ever existed on the Face of this Planet.”

If that’s not disturbing enough, check out where Kaepernick’s money is going, according to the Daily Mail:

Kaepernick’s foundation specified that $2,500 of the donation would go to Cop Watch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police officers.

Another $15,000 is earmarked for “teen workshops.”

The logical conclusion of Kaepernick’s attitude towards the country in which he made millions of dollars as a football player is violence. He is an admirer of Fidel Castro, Che Guevarra, and Malcom X, and donates money to youth programs founded in the honor of a former guerilla fugitive murderer.

It is time people wake up and realize how dangerous the radical left really is!
