Since everything ELSE is ‘racist’, why wouldn’t we expect THIS to be ‘racist’ too?
It’s perfectly ‘fine to sell (and, presumably, wear) a Cheeto-colored mask of the President.
He’s a public figure, and all. So he’s fair game. And the Obama masks were fair game, too.
So why wouldn’t OTHER public political people inspire costumes, too?
You know, like Colin Kaepernick.
The has-been quarterback can slander the police and claim they’re modern slave patrols with impunity. But if a cop makes fun of Colin? Well don’t you know…
And, predictably, there was outrage:
‘Hey @unevadareno! one of your officers, Antonio Gutierrez, decided to go as a racist portrayal of #Kaep last night. this isn’t ok,’ said the original poster of the side-by-side photos. They had found the incriminating photo traversing through social media.
‘The fact that everyone in these comments that’s saying it’s not offensive is white… making my blood boil man. Y’all have no idea,’ said one user.

And of course, the Police Chief was quick to be politically correct about it.
Police Chief Adam Garcia apologized for the image on Sunday after the slew of Twitter comments on the photo.
‘For those who have seen the Halloween costume of one of our officers apparently mocking a citizen who has chosen to take advantage of his constitutional right to protest, I offer my sincere apologies,’ Garcia said in a statement.
He would not confirm if the man pictured in the costume was Gutierrez.
‘Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another – on or off duty – is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack of understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted.’

So, Pro athletes, on company are free to ‘protest’ any way they like, including insulting or even slandering their paying fans.
But a cop — who he has been slandering — is ‘wrong’ in exercising his ‘free speech’ by mocking Colin.
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
Buy yours here.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
