ISIS News: Colin Kaepernick ISIS Sympathizer?
“I think Colin Kaepernick is representing the San Francisco 49ers, when he puts on that uniform, when he steps out on the stage. The world stage, he has taken advantage of that and he is undermining patriotism.” King said.
“I understand that he has an Islamic girlfriend, that is his fiance and this has changed him. He has taken on some different political views along the way. This is activism that’s sympathetic to ISIS. And for me, if I am the coach, I would say: ‘You’re done until you take a knee and beg forgiveness from the American people, you’re not gonna set foot out on this field again’.”
King said these words in an interview with Newsmax TV.
Many people had been asking about Colin Kaepernick’s religious beliefs. His religious background contained Methodist, Lutheran and Baptist.
Earth Necklace reported that Kaepernick’s faith is something which he brings with him to every game. He has got multiple tattoos, most of which direct projections of his faith. Few of these tattoos include “To God the Glory,” “GOD WILL GUIDE ME,” and “Faith.”
The publication also reported that Kaepernick might convert to Islam because of his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, star of MTV’s Girl Code, who is Muslim. Some said that this was the main reason behind his protest.
However, Kaepernick refuted those reports, while he was talking in an interview. He said that he had a “great love” for the religion and believes the allegations against him come from a “deep hatred and fear of Islam.”

Representative Steve King, the Republican from Iowa, is well known for his history of anti non-White sentiments. Earlier he had questioned the historical contributions of nonwhite “subgroups” during an appearance, reported New York Times. It received intense criticism online.
“I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you are talking about? Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?” King asked.
He added that Western civilization itself belonged in Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the United States of America. He also said that’s the entire Western civilization.
