Kaepernick rally scheduled for Soldier Field on Sunday

Getty Images

Mike Glennon will make his debut as the Bears starting quarterback on Sunday at Soldier Field. Before the game, a protest will be held in support of an unemployed quarterback with far more significant career accomplishments.

Dubbed the Standing 4 Kaepernick Protest — Chicago, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT roughly 200 to 500 protesters are expected to show up and support Colin Kaepernick. A permit has been secured, and police are aware of the event.

Kaepernick has no involvement in the demonstration. He held a “Know Your Rights” camp in Chicago, and he donated money to a group there.

Last month, a demonstration in support of Kaepernick was held outside the league office in New York. Kaepernick attracted widespread attention in 2016 when he stopped standing for the national anthem. He has made it clear through intermediaries that he will stand this year — if of course he ever ends up on an NFL roster.

  1. Some people will protest anything.

    Has it occurred to any of these bleeding hearts that in an NFL where Hitler could get signed if he can catch, run, or throw, that maybe Kaepernick simply sucks too much to get signed???

  2. Good stuff. These nudniks are demanding some team sign Kap but are saying to themselves… please, not my team.. he’s horrible!!

  3. Kaepernick clearly isn’t interested in actually playing. If he was he would stop being an ass.

    He is just like his supporters and they are really only interested in ruining football for the people who enjoy it.

  4. Give it up protesters, the guy isn’t on a team because his skills have diminished and he’s a royal pain in the a$$. It has nothing to do with his skin color. There are (and have been) many black QB’s in the NFL and there will continue to be IF the player has outstanding talent. Kaepernick no longer has outstanding talent.

  5. The funniest part of this is that these rally’s don’t help Kaepernick they only hurt him. What organization wants this distraction on their team for a 2nd or 3rd string quarterback? This guy is like a cancer now, nobody wants to go near him.

  6. PRIVILEGE IS WHEN YOU THINK SOMETHING’S NOT A PROBLEM BECAUSE IT DOESN’T AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY. White people who are against Kaepernick have never been treated like the black people in this country, and they do not understand why he is protesting.

  7. Cracks me up. These lunatics are more concerned about a millionaire having a job than all the black people being killed by other black people. Their would be better spent trying to save thed lives of all these innocent blacks being killed in the gang violenc3

  8. Back to Chicago…where he had the ugliest, most pathetic game any qb in history has had. How fitting it is that they would have a rally there. These protesters are literally clueless.

  9. LOL! It ought to be renamed the “Rally for those who haven’t figured out that no one, not even Colin Kaepernick, has a RIGHT to a spot on an NFL roster”.

    What’s better is that only the media will care about it.

  10. Seems like his protest has gotten away from him. It feels like it’s more talking about him and the perceived injustices happening to him than his cause these days.

  11. They are the same protesters Hillary had bussed in to protest Trump.
    Need some protesters? Chicago is chock full of unemployed free loaders who will come out to protest for $20.00

  12. So there will be a rally for an unemployed QB who either never believed in social justice or just recently stopped believing in it because he will no longer take a knee during the Anthem. Nice!

  13. Lol, gotta love these activists. Forget about all the dead blacks in Chicago due to gangs and violence. They DON’T MATTER!

    LET’S RALLY FOR A QB THAT CHOSE TO BECOME UNEMPLOYED AND TURNED DOWN MILLIONS.

    SMH.

  14. Know your rights?
    A term for blacks shot at the police?
    Why not rally to stop black on black crime that kills thousands every year in the United States? Especially in Chicago. I realize minorities have been wrongly killed by police, but that number is a fraction compared to a cultural problem that has plagued blacks for decades.
    Or any activists can disagree with my comment, blame the whites, and follow violent rap music that openly brags about committing murder because of disrespect or gang affiliation.

  15. Jesus H please! If I owned a McDonalds, I wouldn’t hire Kaepernick to be a fry cook. It’s an owners right. Go get a job. And these carny protesters? It’s not like they would watch the NFL anyway. Anyone not watching because Kaepernick isn’t on a sideline walking around with a clipboard is probably watching Looney Tunes either way.

  16. It’s funny that Kaepernick, of all people, would hold a “Know Your Rights” rally.

    This is the same guy who admires Che’ Guevara and Fidel Castro the murdering, gay hating, racists, Communists.

    Seems to be a disconnect somewhere in his feeble little mind. But I suppose he is just his radical girlfriend’s hand puppet anyways. Kaepernick is simply the useful idiot.

  17. They had a rally at the NFL HQ?

    Weird, I didn’t hear anything about it……

    Neither did anyone else………..

    Bunch of idiots…

    That’s disrespectful to people born idiots and not college educated to become idiots.

  19. Please all liberal activists – keep protesting about something, anything as much as possible all the way through the 2020 reelection of President Trump.

    Thank you,

    Real Americans

  20. Good grief. The guy sucks as a qb. He has been disrespectful to our country (despite whatever justification the enablers want to apply). He’s a backup at best. He’s a distraction. And he wants FAR too much money to put up with all of that. NO.

  21. WHAT DO THESE SIMPLETONS WANT?! QUIT PROTESTING AND PROVIDE A SOLUTION! But most pro-athletes are little more than grand-standing morons with barely a high school diploma, so what can you expect. You want to stand up for BLM, start speaking out against all the black children who grow up without a father, speak out against the lack of focus in the black community on education (according the recent studies, a 7th grade black male reads at a 3rd grade level!). If America focused on those issues, and if more black leaders spoke on those two subjects, there would be SIGNIFICANTLY fewer run-ins with the law for black males, as well as SIGNIFICANTLY better financial circumstances for black America.
    America is all for supporting any minority group in succeeding, as that makes for a better country. Dividing ourselves into ethnic and gender groups is a horrible idea at best, and turns social issues into “their issue” and not something we should all work together on improving.
    So let’s stop dividing our country up with arbitrary dividing lines. Let’s stop focusing on the narcissism of small differences. Let’s stop ambitiously whining and protesting a country’s flag for no clear reason. Let’s stop with these pathetically ignorant protests on behalf of an average QB with a less-than-average brain who can hardly articulate his reasons for protesting (just listen to his ignorant comments in his interview and consider his “brilliant” move to wear pig socks and a Castro shirt).

  22. Kaep is the only QB ever that’s 29 years old or younger to not be on a roster with the stats he has posted. Anyone arguing it’s his performance does not watch football or understand the sport. Yards and TD’s with few turnovers = good thing.

    It’s all due to his belief as 7+ owners donated to a guy that doesn’t believe in climate change and would bang his daughter. Kudos America! We are showing the same intellect level as the people who attack our great nation….

  23. I don’t understand the protests for Kap. The NFL office is not preventing him from being signed, but rather none of the teams want him. Who exactly are the protesters blaming? Some team should just sign him just to satisfy the protesters?

  24. Ya know Chicago could be protesting the amount of young black men who are killed everyday by other young black men but no they’ll just tiptoe right on past that topic. Because we all know black on black violence just doesn’t happen everyday but the NFL’s refusal to employee a black player does? This is so backwards its ridiculous. Wonder how many protesters wind up the victim of gun shot wounds at the hand of other protesters. What’s the over/under on that?

  25. seatownballers – “Why not rally to stop black on black crime…?”

    The bigots need to invent another deflection, this one is getting old. At least five similar comments in this thread, and not a single one of those commenters cares one hoot about African-Americans shooting each other. In fact, those commenters are happy every time an African-American is shot.

  26. So with Chicago having the highest murder rate in the nation this is what your protest
    A rich kid being out of work ????

    Three people I care about have been abused by the police. I still hate Kaepernick because he is scum. Thanks for calling me whitey though.

  29. “So with Chicago having the highest murder rate in the nation this is what you protest”?

    Yeah, like you really care about the murder rate in Chicago, especially among African-Americans. Actually, you seem quite happy about it.

  30. Know you’re rights Chicago know that you have the right as a young black man get shot by another young black man and progressives especially our ex-president will Exercise their right to completely ignore it

    ————————

    You liberal SJWs are really good at shifting blame to advance your agenda.

    Are there some racist people in this country? Sure. That’s completely beside the point. People who are against Kaepernick don’t like his disrespect for the flag, his support for the brutal communist dictator Fidel Castro, or his hatred for all the police officers in this country who risk their lives to keep communities safe.

    “Privilege” is nothing more than the newest left-wing scapegoat for the failure of black communities. It’s a lot easier to blame Whitey than to fix the blame where it actually belongs.

  32. 12 black kids, 1 white kid, and 1 Hispanic kid (all 19 or younger) were killed in Chicago in December 2016 alone.

    751 people were murdered in Chicago in 2016.
    477 have died so far this year.

    Lets rally so its harder for a rich dude to get a job he does not deserve instead!

    Ten years from now, how many of the kids from Kaepernick’s Chicago rally will be dead?

  33. I am having a rally to get jamarcus Russell back in the NFL he has been black balled by the NFL for being a cough syrup addict and I for one will not tolerate this any longer. If it was cocaine or alcohol he would still have a job. Stop discriminating again cough syrup addict. #stopthehate

  34. He has no one to blame but himself. He walked away from $14M because he thought his “game” would get him signed and clearly that was a bad decision. Kap also decided to make statements that were grossly exaggerated and in some cases factually incorrect. What’s telling to me are the parade of former NFL players like Marshall Faulk, who is trying to reframe the crusade by white washing the numerous stupid & disgraceful statements made by their spread offense hero.

    And I’m American of Mexican and Native American descent so don’t go there!

  35. One of the biggest frauds in the country. He became a “social activist” after he was benched for one of the worst quarterbacks in league. He lost the spotlight and needed it back. Notice when he was in the super bowl he wasn’t spewing this garbage? That would have been the perfect opportunity to bring up “social justice.”

  36. So they are actually protesting that the fact that HE voided a $14.5 million dollar contract with the 49ers, now can’t find a job, and it’s a racial social issue now? What are people thinking? He did this all to himself.

    ______________________

    The fact you call pointing out black on black crime as a response to a protest about “unfair treatment” of black people a deflection is part of what’s wrong with supporters of Kap’s protest and what bothers anti-Kap people. Especially when you’re gonna say those bringing up black on black crime don’t even care about it. You don’t seem to care about it either as do none of these BLM people since “the white man” can’t be blamed for it. Brushing it off, calling it a deflection and acting like it doesn’t happen isn’t a good look for people who claim to genuinely be concerned about the treatment of black people in America if they’re not gonna address one of the biggest killers of black people….other black people. Statistics show nobody treats black people worse in this country than other black people. The problem with acknowledging that though is that whitey can’t be blamed.

  38. This is the exact reason he is not signed and never will be. He’s a distraction. If he were to be signed tomorrow there would be a bunch of idiots protesting since he’s not starting. It would never end…

  39. He was a flash in the pan, and a millionaire. People should give their time and energy to someone more deserving than him.

  40. What a bunch of idiots. I’m sure they are paid protesters.
    kaepernick is a horrible QB.
    If they knew football, they wouldn’t protest.

  41. I’ve been wanting a job as a chief financial officer for a big corporation. I’m not what you’d call qualified but I was great handling my own money….for a couple years. Anybody wanna join me in protest for a job I don’t deserve, can’t succeed at and am not entitled to?

    Trump morons against Kap everyone else supporting his cause. What does that tell you about our country?

    =====================================================================
    You could also say that it looks like a bunch of moronic Obama supporters pushing this Kaepernick/anti cop agenda.

  43. Well, if they were looking to drive home why Kap isn’t worth the trouble this should do it.

    He’s not even in the league and there are protests and people not standing for the Pledge and it’s torquing off the average football fan.

    The best thing for Kap would be for everyone to let it go but that’s not going to happen.

  44. Couldn’t care less what they do, as long as no there is violence. Kaep just isn’t that good. Period.

    For those of you that complain about snowflakes being snowflakes, you know what that makes you? Yep, a snowflake too.

    People will always be allowed to peacefully protest, if you don’t agree with them, ignore them. Simple.

  45. I’d like to see these people willingly walk through the south side of Chicago alone in the middle of the night.

    Do these idiots realize he wasn’t cut ,,,he walked away from 14 million dollars !
    _____________________

    actually, he was summoned to a meeting by the new HC and GM. They very nicely convinced him that they were going to cut him and it would look better for him if he just exercised his option to walk away. You cannot be that naive. San Fran was the one place where Keeps protests seemed to not be such an issue. And yet, Kyle wanted to bring in HIS GUYS. So lame. If Chip Kelley were still there, Kaep would have a job-still.

    ——————————————————————————————-

    Now argue with these facts: black people commit more crimes in this country than any other group — even against other blacks.
    My great grandmother was a full blooded Erie Indian. She was sold as a youngster as an “indentured servant” which meant she had to work for a certain number of years for a family to gain her freedom. It was a fancy term for slave.
    My grandparents were poor farmers and my grandmother on my mom’s side was deaf and my grandfather on my mom’s side was hurt in a dynamite explosion when my mon was 3 years old. He was completely blind and had his left arm amputated. They had 7 children and would have had 9 had two not died as infants. They were dirt poor and my grandmother did not have running water in her home until about 1960.
    My dad put a career in the Army and he and my mom had 6 kids. We were poor and lived in Army housing most of the time.
    The point of all of this is that no matter where you come from, you can improve your lot in life in this country if you work hard and stay out of trouble. Many blacks have been told all their lives that “the government” is going to make life easier for you, and they now feel a sense of entitlement to all kinds of social programs. It’s a big reason why they have been in a squirrel’s cage in terms of their standing in society.
    I don’t care what you or anyone else says — it all starts by looking inward, not looking outward. Blaming whites for everything is an excuse.
    Every ethnic group which came to this country experienced some form of discrimination. But by hard work and determination, they succeeded in raising their standard of living.
    Millions of blacks did the same thing, but too many blacks chose not to and are the cause of many of their own problems.
    I could give specific examples of what I am talking about, but I can’t do it in here.
    The bottom line is, no matter how you spin it, what Kaepernick did was wrong. He has no right to demonstrate his political beliefs at his place of employment. In fact, he got away with doing it because he’s black. No white player would be able to demonstrate his love for the Confederate flag, for instance, if he chose to do that on the field.
    Finally, it’s very arrogant of you to tell white people they aren’t capable of understanding prejudice when they see it. I have seen it plenty of times from white people and black people, too.

  48. Coming soon to an NFL city near you: empty seats and crashing TV ratings. Old retail axiom, don’t piss off the paying customers. People go to games to forget about their problems, have a few laughs and enjoy talented athletes performing at their best,those who wanted to be preached to probably went to church that morning.

  49. Might as well start a rally for Tebow right next to it. He is out of the league for the same reason. Distraction…not race.

  50. We get Kap rallies on PFT. Funny thing ratings were down last year. I believe it was BECAUSE of 7’s protest. The NFL enabled this. The field is the workplace. Employees should not be able to protest there. They are continuing and ratings are down this year too. Sadly if this shakedown works ratings will plummet. Guess the NFL has a mess on its hands.

  51. The best part of this rally with maybe 500 people is, most of them will show up at the unemployment office on Monday to collect their checks.

  52. “You could also say that it looks like a bunch of moronic Obama supporters pushing this Kaepernick/anti cop agenda”.

    All of you cop worshippers are going to be very disappointed when the those cops come for your guns. The NRA and the Second Amendment will be of little use against today’s militarized police departments. You won’t be so thrilled with the cops when that happens.

  53. Does anyone remember that Kaepernick was under contract to the 49ers for 2017 but opted out. He had a job but quit!

    And do these protesters remember that his record in 2016 was 1 win 10 losses? Managed to beat the Rams in OT. His average offensive production was 18 points against opponents 31. That is why no one wants to hire him.

    But as a 49er fan, thank god he quit the team.

  54. All this energy being put to make Colon Krappernick look like a man should be used to help real victims who have no control over their plight – those harmed by natural disasters.

    Krappernick is advocated for fake causes where racism is contrived to advance a political agenda of stealing from those who achieve and giving to those who whine about being perpetual victims (when they are only being held accountable for their personal failures).

    Shun these jerks. They are helping no one – they are funded by George Soros who has a reason to advance social unrest under the guise of social justice – a fake cause that is all predicated on making blacks as perpetual victims.

  55. Imagine wasting your own time trying to get someone you don’t know and who doesn’t care about you to get paid millions of dollars.

  56. This is stupid…Why is it so important to the liberal left to inject politics into everything??..Football is a time where we put aside all that and enjoy ourselves and to get away from the real world…enough already

  58. They juse don’t want to deal with kap in there organization. It’s that simple because at least 10 to 16 starting qbs are not better than him. And he can’t be a backup either? ?? SMH

    You’re right. I’m a white person and no one has ever offered me $14 million to play a sport.

  60. This the reason Trump is President. The Left in America has decided that protests and political correctness are the bases of their platform. These people are killing his very slim chance of every getting back into the league. Self defeating, as usual.

  62. I have a brother, sister-in-law, two nephews, their wives and children, and a niece in Florida and in Georgia.
    At this moment, there are millions of people who need our thoughts, prayers and help. This disaster emphasizes that Colin Kaepernick and the sheep who have joined him have zero significance in the world.
    It’s amazing how disasters such as what happened in Texas and what has happened in the path of Hurricane Irma can make people forget about their differences and pitch in to help one another.
    Hopefully, the people who have lost their homes and even family members will get back on their feet with help from all of us.
    Instead of these protesters gathering in Chicago tomorrow, they should focus their efforts on the people who really need their help.

  64. Opening weekend of NFL football and Kaepernick is not on a roster

    Life is good and the beer is cold …….

  65. The entitlement that these protesters demand for Kaepernick is unrealistic. Not only has Kaepernick’s NFL QB play progressively gotten worse but he opted out of his NFL contract he had with the 49er’s.

    The protesters are using Kaepernick to push their political agenda and opinions. You’re also judged by the company you keep. Take notice Kaepernick.

  66. Wow of all things to Protest in Chicago… Why are they not protesting the murder rate, black on black violence, an inept mayor… just saying there are a few bigger issues in Chicago than the Bears signing a back up QB

  67. if these people really want to help him, they would hire a private QB instructor that can teach him how to be a pocket passer. Because no matter how many protest take place, no matter how much money he gives to charity each week, none of this will make him a pocket passer WHICH IS WHY HE CAN’T GET A JOB NOW!!!!!

  68. “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”

    — J.D. Salinger, Catcher in the Rye

    Protesting a situation like this does NOTHING except make it about the protestors. It’s a great way for a bunch of folks to feel like they’re doing something and pat themselves on the back in our look-at-me Facebook selfie culture… without actually doing something or putting out any REAL effort. Where are the protests against CTE? Why aren’t these people spending their Sunday raising funds for Houston, Florida, etc? I guess that won’t get as many Twitter mentions?

  69. 477 Murders in Chicago, 283 Murders in Baltimore inter city schools are failing over 3 out of 4 black children are born out of Wedlock and these liberals are prostesting Kaepernik not being signed.

  70. I guess some people have no life….& want to continue wasting the time they have left…. How appropriate

  71. Just curious if any if these protesting players would gladly give up their spot on the roster and being cut to let Colin get on a team.

  72. Some of these are 700 to 30. And the 30 liberals think they are right. .5% of the poll. They think they are right.

  73. Kap had the right to sit during the anthem, and i have the right to call him an idiot for doing it. There are consequences with actions. If these owners do not want to sign him bc of this its thier right, just as it was his right. I do not believe Kap is genuine. Why you say, how is he sitting for the anthem one week while wearing a fidel castro shirt another week. Its a contradiction. All these idiots that wnt to sit and follow in his footsteps, i wish you the same plight he has. And guess shat you tree huggers, I HAVE THE RIGHT!

  74. I’m just going to identify as transsexual and transrace. If they ask, I ‘ll just switch. Well, my problem is solved. You extreme right wingers can fight it out. We have it covered on the extreme left.

  75. 200-500 people will be outside protesting in the parking lot, while 60,000 people will be partying, drinking, and watching football with zero worries about that loser.

  76. Let’s see some mentions his stats and having him over cutler….
    Stats were padded during garbage time. Games where over. Saw him play last year in Chicago….he lost his steadying job to Blaine Gabbert! Lol
    Cutler? Duh!!!! Let’s sign kap in Miami how admires Castro. Do you think the large Cuban-American population wound like that? What about them? No the poor baby needs a job and all the owners are racist. Really? Condemns an entire occupation based on few bad apples. So if I have a bad experience with a black person…which I have….should I hate them all??? Works both ways!

  77. I must be insensitive.

    I am only concerned about the poor, the oppressed and all those displaced by natural disaster.

    I guess I should find a place in my heart for self entitled and self inflicted. Wonder what that movement will be called?

  78. How much are they paying these people to show up? That’s the MO of the left. Most of these people probably don’t know what a football looks like.

    ——————–
    I think some have gotten so out of touch that they actually think there is some connection as to whether a team will spend a few million dollars on someone they are unlikely to get a few million dollars worth of return on….and what its like to be a black person in America. Its not like Kaepernick is getting oppressed or had his freedom of speech denied. ‘Not getting paid millions of dollars’ does not count as being oppressed. ‘Not getting paid millions of dollars’ for saying something (serms to be the expectation some have) does not count as being denied ones right to say it.

  80. Notice he yet again mentions last month’s Kaep protest he heavily promoted, with zero mention of how many actually showed.

    He also never once retracted his misinformation that Spike Lee was organizing that one. I only learned of Lee making it clear he has nothing to do with it just now when I tried to find how many actually showed.

    Guess what, zero coverage anywhere online since two or three weeks before the grand event.

  81. “Everyone who is surprised that florio wrote this piece – please raise your hands.”

    “The girl in the 2nd row – yes?”

    “Oh you have to go to the bathroom – go ahead.”

    “Anyone else? No one?”

    I thought so.

  82. This is just stupid. Last I checked an employer had the right to choose who they wish to employee. Political differences aside he’s really not that good and has done nothing to change his perception that he created. You can’t force somebody to hire somebody. When and why has our society gone gone wrong?

  83. This country is not perfect but it is still the most accepting, racially sensitive country in the world. Stop to think why Racial profiling even exists. It has to do with the perception that the person or group of people being profiled present a threat. While prejudice will always exist to an extent, BLM as well as African Americans everywhere should work to eliminate crime in their own neighborhoods and lessen the perception of fear. CK has unfortunately fallen under the influence of radical individuals who prefer to condemn society instead of finding solutions. He’s probably not a bad dude but his misplaced philosophy has ruined his opportunities in a career path that is short to begin with. For all the talk about police violence, it’s still extremely isolated and over dramatized. Of course none of it is good but think how these officers risk their lives everyday. We are a Nation of Laws, lets support hose who enforce them and root out the few who abuse their authority.

    PRIVILEGE IS WHEN YOU THINK SOMETHING’S NOT A PROBLEM BECAUSE IT DOESN’T AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY. White people who are against Kaepernick have never been treated like the black people in this country, and they do not understand why he is protesting.

    ===============
    I can help you with the police. The email I received from whiteprivelege.net told me when I have contact with the police to do the following:
    Pull your vehicle to the side of the road as soon as possible
    Turn off my radio
    Turn on all lights inside my vehicle
    Place both hands on my steering wheel and only move when directed by the police
    If the cop is a knob, seek remedy in court and after our contact

    This was also covered by,”The Talk” my white parents gave me upon receiving a drivers license. I hope sharing this proprietary information helps.

  85. Even by internet standards, the comments here are almost impossibly stupid.

    If you don’t like the way a product your purchase is being manage, you make your voices heard to the company. That is how capitalism works.

    I understand lots of people have no sympathy for Kaepernick, but if these people think the NFL is blacklisting him for a bad reason, they can and should protest. Americans should engage more actively with companies to encourage those companies to behave ethically. So much energy is wasted getting into fights with people over the internet. You want change? Find a bunch of like-minded people and get your tails in front of the office of the CEO of the company you want to change. That’s how it works.

  86. SJWs think protest is fine but if you make fun of a pathetic protest on a message board than you are a bad person.

    The funny thing is that they are too stupid to get the irony.

  87. There are millions of blacks currently enslaved by other blacks in Africa as I type this and the piece of Kraep is worried about 63 unarmed blacks versus 66 unarmed whites killed by cops in a country of 330 million?

    A phony issue if I ever heard of one.

    Go stop slavery in Africa if you are worried about rights of blacks, Mr. Multi – Millionaire.

  88. Again, when it comes to Kap, I will not watch one football game until that man is rehired. If that means forever, so be it. I am far more interested in the man, than I am in the game.
    Seriously, it’s a game.

  89. nice to see the whole community show up to “force” the companies to hire you, but still no hiring????
    this by itself, should deserve a big LOL.

  90. My prediction–

    About 500 people will show up to “protest”, 300 of them hired by some “community activism” organization. Maybe 150 will know what the “protest” is about. Mayor Rahm will be there to show his “solidarity” with the protesters. Jesse may show up if he’s not too busy impregnating a staffer.

    The media covering this “event” will outnumber the participants.

    MSNBC will report the number of attendees as 7500. CNN will say 5000. The NY Times and Washington Post will say 10,000. HuffPo, Salon, Slate, and far too many of my friends will say 25,000. Fox News will say 25. President Trump will say something inflammatory just as this “cause” seems headed towards a well-deserved fizzle-out.

  91. DID any one even bother to show up for this, ROTFLMAO….Poor Poor old CRAPONICK!!!! The has been washed up QB. He’s so finished, done, Look at how pathetic and wore out he is, He’s so tired, he can’t even stand up during the National Anthem!!!! He’s so worn out he is constantly kneeling, who wants a QB who might take a snap, then kneel a knee down? Listen to how two sided CRAPONICK REALLY IS, This is no more than he needed some attention, press time, CRAPONICK himself was fined by the NFL for using RACIAL SLURS against other BLACK FOOTBALL PLAYERS. Look it up, he was FINED for doing so, NOW NOW OL CRAPONICK is so concerned over them, LMAO. Craponick. just needed and wanted face time, to be noticed, talk about to fuel his EGO..LOL
