And it seems like the bullies on the left are once again offended by a person’s free speech.
A Placerville California barbershop owner has now been forced to apologize after a picture of a Colin Kaepernick doll hung from a noose in his shop was posted on social media by someone who doesn’t even have the guts to be identified by name.
“They got Colin Kaepernick hanging from a noose,” the man who shared the picture, who wished to be identified as Joseph said to Fox 40.
The owner of the establishment who is a celeb in his own right said “I literally had no idea that I was offending people.” Known as “Bowtie Barber,” said. “We have a hangman out here called George and so, you know, with the theme of hangtown I hung him. And it was wrong, it was absolutely wrong.”
The barber said the doll has in fact been hanging in his establishment since 2016. The same year when Kaepernick and a teammate first knelt during the national anthem because he was benched for not being a very good player.
The barber went on to say “I am a die hard 49ers fan and when that action happened there was a lot portrayed on the 49ers and I took it personally.”
The doll has since been taken down by the owner, but Joseph (The same man who didn’t have the guts to go on the record by name) says he feels the damage has already been done. He added, “Imagine how many kids already seen that doll.”
The barber said all he can do at this point is hope his apology is accepted. “I’m publicly announcing that I apologize. It was the wrong thing for me to do,” he said. “Absolutely will never happen again. I absolutely see the other side of it. I’m sorry.”
I am sure the left won’t stop until they see this business out of business. Because that’s how the left operates.

Throwback To When Colin Kaepernick Was Fined For Using Racial Slurs Towards A Black Player
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sent social media in a firestorm Saturday morning when it became headline news that he refused to stand during the National Anthem prior to the teas preseason game Friday night.
In a statement that followed, Kaepernick explained his actions with, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color, to me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Kaepernick went from a relatively liked player to arguably the leagues if not sports’ most hated, being shunned by many fans who feel as if he disrespected the country he and they live in.
The QB won’t be fined for his actions, as the NFL noted though it is encouraged, it is not required for a player to stand during the anthem. Kaepernick was fined for a previous offensive though, one that some may look as quite hypocritical in light of the comment from Saturday.
After a 28-20 loss against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 14 of 2015, Kaepernick was fined $11,00 by the NFL for using a racial slur, “f***ing n***a/er” to be specific.
Kaepernick was flagged on the play for using the language by ref Laird Hayes, knocking the 49ers back 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.
There had been heavy debate on two issues relating to this situation, whether or not players should be able to be fined for language used on the playing field, and whether the “n word” shouldn’t be used by members of the white community while blacks see a different meaning to the word while using it amongst each other.
As you can clearly see from the above article Colin Kaepernick only became interested in becoming a social justice warrior when he saw his football career coming to an end. In fact, the man was even raised by a white family. But I am sure the left won’t pay those facts any mind, all they are interested in is ending this barber shop.
