Two weeks into the NFL free agent signing season and still Colin Kaepernick is without a job.
The man who became the hero of whiny social justice warriors and cop-hating miscreants after he refused to stand for the national anthem last year may soon have to accept that he committed career suicide.
The former San Francisco 49er chose to opt-out of his contract in the hope of landing a big money deal from one of the many quarterback hungry teams. But while such immortals as Brian Hoyer and Mike Glennon have landed lucrative contracts, it is Kaepernick who remains on the outside looking in.
It may stay this way too.
In the absence of a contract, the militant Mulatto has now invested himself in efforts to send food, water and other supplies to the impoverished Muslim-infested African shithole of Somalia.
The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting “Kaepernick assists Somalia relief flight”:
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is participating in an effort to bring relief to the people of Somalia and announced via a Twitter video Friday that he and his group have secured the use of a plane to bring supplies to the impoverished east African nation.
“Amazing news, Turkish Airlines granted us an airplane to fly to Somalia, a 60-ton cargo plane so we can fly there with food, with water for these people,” said Kaepernick in the 43-second video. “Now we’ve started a GoFundMe page to allow anyone to help us donate food, donate water. We’ll make sure every cent goes to help these people.”
According to the page, the flight will take place March 27.
The GoFundMe page’s goal is $1 million; in its first nine hours, more than 16,800 people had pledged more than $489,000. Kaepernick led the way with a $50,000 donation (he reportedly also donated $50,000 to the national Meals on Wheels organization Friday).
“This is a victory for the people, this is a victory for the people of Somalia,” said Kaepernick. “It was done out of love, out of respect for these people. We wanted to bring structure to this so we’re going to use the name Love Army for Somalia. So use the #LoveArmyforSomalia. This is amazing, let’s keep building, let’s keep going.”
The group is working the non-government organization American Refugee Committee and said on the GoFundMe page that Turkish Airlines had “agreed to let us ship food containers on their commercial aircraft to Somalia UNTIL THE END OF THE FAMINE!!!”
This is among the most high-profile philanthropic endeavors Kaepernick has ever participated in.

Somalia is one of the six countries on the list of President Trump’s revised travel ban as it has been identified as a terrorist factory which has been stalled by extreme left activist judges.
Kaepernick recently announced that he would be discontinuing his national anthem protests for the upcoming season but it was too little too late. The cynics would point out that his decision to change his ways was related more to his need to rake in the dough than out of any change in personal convictions.
They would probably be right too and it is possible that the #LoveArmyForSomalia is just another public relations effort to burnish his image so some sucker will pay him millions to play football this year.
