Failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently labeled the rioters and looters who were responsible for millions of dollars in damages as “freedom fighters” as he announced that he would be starting a fund to pay for the bail of these violent criminals.
“In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation,” Kaepernick said in a tweet on Friday. “We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by [Your Rights Camp].”
Just one day earlier, Kaepernick cheered on the riots as he called for the end of “civility” and encouraged his followers to “fight back.”
“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” he said. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”
Kaepernick is just one of many celebrities who are funding the bail to these rioters and looters.
