Campus P.C. Is Out of Control

There has never been any serious question that the NFL was blackballing Colin Kaepernick, as it is obvious to anyone less in the tank for NFL ownership than Andy Benoit that a lot of substantially worse QBs still have jobs. Which is still true:

The only alternative explanation is massive, systematic incompetence, which we can now rule out:

Remember when quarterback Colin Kaepernick initially went unsigned after becoming a free agent in March 2017? Remember the false and overstated concerns that were being pushed to justify the position that he was unemployed for football reasons? Remember when some said that was all a bunch of crap?

As it turns out, it was.

If the subtle-on-the-surface shift that happened last July, when Kaepernick’s status went from being about only football to being about non-football considerations, wasn’t enough to prove that the “all about football” narrative amounted to nonsense, the ongoing collusion case is establishing that multiple teams viewed Kaepernick as a starting NFL quarterback in 2017, and that they continue to view him that way. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, internal franchise documents generated as part of the free-agency evaluation process and testimony from witnesses harvested via depositions in the collusion litigation has established that teams viewed Kaepernick as being good enough not simply to be employed by an NFL team, but to be a starting quarterback for an NFL team.

So, to be clear:

And, to compound this, the NFL is using further coercion to no-platform dissenting views.

Surely the nation’s op-ed free speech warriors will be on this immediately! I mean, granted, the president of the United States and the NFL’s billionaire owners are hardly as powerful as the typical Oberlin sophomore, but still seems worthy of mention. If only an NFL owner would call Taco Tuesday “cultural appropriation.”
