Colin Kaepernick Just Sold Out His #IMWITHKAP Jersey in Hours




Colin Kaepernick sold out a customized jersey emblazoned with the hashtag #IMWITHKAP from his personal website in a number of hours Monday evening, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.

The jerseys, which aren't
affiliated with Nike, retailed at $174.99 for adults and $99.99 for kids.

It is unclear how many jerseys were sold.

Kaepernick announced the release of the jerseys in a tweet Monday morning. The original announcement said 20 percent of the proceeds would go to the Know Your Rights Camp, a campaign founded by Kaepernick.

The Know Your Rights Camp homepage features this gibberish:
OUR 10-POINT SYSTEM
1. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE FREE.
2. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HEALTHY.
3. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE BRILLIANT.
4. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE.
5. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE LOVED.
6. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE COURAGEOUS.
7. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE ALIVE.
8. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TRUSTED.
9. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE EDUCATED.
10. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS.
The right to be healthy?

To be brilliant?

To be loved?

Kaepernick is promoting snake oil, echo chamber, philosophy that makes no sense and can quickly lead to the thinking there is a role for government to enforce these "rights."

  1. There aren't enough urban primitives to drive these kinds of sales ... or are there? Make no mistake: the majority of the sales and the shoes are going to virtue signalling GoodWhites so they can distinguish themselves from those BadWhites. You know... Trump voters. They like to feel like they too are cool Urban Primitives as long as they don't have to actually live with them.

    1. Why can't libertarians figure out a way to make liberty appaing to people who want to be cool.

      I mean, we're the ones talking about guns and drugs. We should look like badasses.

  2. "You have the right to be trusted"? I don't believe for a second the T-shirt manufacturers believe that deep inside.

  4. I can see a man on the street interviewer asking random people if these should be codified into law and the same nodding their heads in affirmation. Mob rule is a scary thing.

  5. This is almost as bad as a bunch of yokels chanting about the “land of the free” while obsequiously worshipping the state.

  6. "You have the right to be loved."

    LOL. Big words coming from someone whose own parents didn't even want him.
