GQ: Blue Lives Don’t Matter

GQ Magazine, in a desperate attempt to remain relevant, has decided to go all in on the anti-police movement largely embraced by the NFL. They decided to name Colin Kaepernick as Citizen of the Year.

You’d think they would have taken note of the empty stadiums and ratings in the toilet when it comes to football.  But no.

I have to imagine their latest public relations move was the recommendation of a liberal college student who dropped out after 11 years bouncing back and forth between gender studies and hangovers.

That’s right, America – the football player who can’t even get a job because he:

A)  Sucks at football

B)  Disrespects our police and our veterans

C)  Hates America

… has been chosen as the citizen of the year.

The story is called “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced.” That’s fair, because all this race-baiting, anti-American bum has been doing for the past year is whining that nobody wants to hire him.

Perhaps with all of that free time on his hands, he could have learned how to read and how to use the Internet. On it he would have found the FBI report that showed more white people were killed in police shootings than African-Americans and Hispanics combined in 2015.

He must instead be busy comforting the families of children killed in black-on-black violence in inner cities.  Oh wait, he’s not – he’s busy crying about how nobody loves him. 

I suppose it’s fitting that a liberal magazine would use an entitled, whiny, and unemployed loser to try to convince Millennials to get mommy and daddy to buy them a subscription to an overpriced pile of ads that teach you that “manliness” is wearing a turtleneck and a vagina hat.

I have a list of millions of people who SHOULD be listed as “citizen of the year.” They’re the majority of police officers, veterans, and other first responders here in America.  

But of course all this was from GQ was a desperate attempt to put its name out there … even if it means selling your soul and proudly declaring that you hate America.
