Here's What's Wildly Missing In the Colin Kaepernick Ongoing Story

The Colin Kaepernick story continues on. Kaepernick, a quarterback for the NFL franchise the San Francisco Forty Niners, once again refused to stand up during the playing of the Nation Anthem in Monday night's San Francisco 49ers game. Kaepernick took a knee and was joined by another teammate Eric Reid.
The NFL season is barely underway, but already the focus is being taken away from the field and directed at the sidelines.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem once again ahead of his team's NFL season opener in Santa Clara on Monday.
Teammate Eric Reid once again knelt by his side in solidarity with his protest against institutional racism, as he did before the team's preseason game against the San Diego Chargers.
No Rams appeared to kneel as part of the protest, which has gained traction as the league's opening weekend thrust it further into the spotlight.
Two LA players, Kenny Britt and Robert Quinn, raised their fists during the rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner," in a gesture that has an alternative show of support of Kaepernick's protest. 49ers Antoine Bethea and Eli Harold were also seen with their fists in the air.
As you can see it's no longer just Kaepernick who is protesting the playing of the National Anthom, others are joining him. When asked specifically what his protest is all about Kaepernick makes it very clear. Incidentally the following quote apparently was ignored by CNN and the following is reported on the Fox Sports website:
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said after he was first seen sitting during the anthem. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
Why did CNN not post this comment? Their coverage of the story is much more generic.
Colin Kaepernick started protesting what he says are racist police practices and behavior by sitting during the national anthem before the kickoffs of preseason games, but as the regular season starts, the stakes -- and his protest's visibility -- are that much higher.
Quite a difference in the wording huh? And as this saga rolls on, lost in all of this is what Kaepernick is NOT saying. He is not complaining about the tyrannical out of control police state that is oppressing America and humanity. Instead all of Kaepernick's energy is focused on ONLY the treatment that police state is giving blacks. No mention of the fact that Whites, Hispanics, Arabs and people from other nationalities and races are also being oppressed by this out of control police state.
The police state, like the ruling elite, is color blind. It wants to enslave everyone not just blacks. That is the scary and colossal reality that Kaepernick is entirely missing, like missing the forest for the tress.
Unfortunately calling out the police state is "conspiracies" but calling out police racism is fair game and reality. And perhaps this points to a growing social justice based manufactured civil unrest which the ruling elite have been planning for some time now.
Remember the Soros funded Occupy Revolution of 2011? Generally I feel Occupy served some good as it allowed many people to see for themselves the magnitude and brutality of the police state which they didn't know was there all along. Despite all of its failures it served as a tool to help wake people up. Also it provided a platform for activists to be heard.
Of course, some of the not-so-good outcomes of the Occupy movement was that it also served as a platform for learned helplessness and to discourage future activism. This of course on top of the fact that it accomplished very little in terms of actually stopping corruption. But that was then this is now.
Today it is revealed that George Soros dumped as much as $33 million into Black Lives Matter so is it possible this ongoing story with Kaepernick is part of an engineered plan to further divide people along race lines?
On the other hand this could be a genuine effort by a man who sees the injustice portrayed by mainstream media. When you consider how the mainstream media has portrayed many events of the past few years (Michael Brown, Trevon Martin etc) it's believable that someone (like Kaepernick) could simply be responding to that presentation of reality.
Whichever the explanation, sadly Kaepernick is missing a golden opportunity to inform the world of the police state that now oppresses all of America. Sadly Kaepernick's scope is limited to race and he doesn't see the abuse all people of all colors are enduring at the hands of the police state. No mention is being made of the militarization of police, the 1033 program, the tyrannical Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) they are using to illegally track Americans or the fact that police brutality is occurring everywhere.
What do I think is happening here? Welcome to the world of engineered civil unrest. Whether Kaepernick is sincere or not, the reality is that the ruling elite will gladly capitalize on this accumulating tension to spark (potentially staged if necessary) civil unrest. This civil unrest that is brewing below the surface in this story could blow up like a powder keg.
Millions of people are watching and the potential is very real. Remember, it could be real or staged civil unrest. Perhaps they are getting ready for another major false flag which will involve a patsy playing the role of the "angry Black Lives Matter guy" who will of course conveniently leave his "manifesto" on social media discussing all the injustices on (ONLY) blacks and why he (the future false flag patsy shooter guy) is going to do what he is about the do.
Whatever is brewing here, we can (again) be sure that the ruling elite will use this to their benefit. As I wrote about recently, the mainstream media initially tried everything to demonize Kaepernick for daring to speak out and sit out the National Anthom but now that it has blown up in their face they'll be looking to make this blow up some other way.
And with no end in sight for the Colin Kaepernick saga which now involves numerous supporters who are now joining him in solidarity, who knows what direction this will take. No one should assume they know the ending of this story because they don't. As we saw in the initial phase of this saga, the mainstream media didn't get the end result they wanted. Now they are adjusting their plans perhaps but this thing could take a turn in an unexpected direction.
So let's be on the lookout for the chilling effect and let's ask ourselves, what will the ruling elite do to create the chilling effect they need to silence and control the masses?
In order to stay on top we must stay ahead of the game and not let anything surprise us. So let's not be fooled if this story turns for the worse or if it is being used as a backdrop to a much bigger story coming soon.
