Steve King on Kaepernick: ‘This Is Activism That Is Sympathetic to ISIS’

Congressman Steve King ratcheted up the attacks on Colin Kaepernick today by playing the Islam/ISIS card.

There’s been a bunch of wild rumors recently that Kaepernick converted to Islam. The rumors are so unsourced and questionable that only Sean Hannity has considered them worthy of elevating.

King told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg today that he would fire an employee who did what Kaepernick did before jumping on the Muslim conspiracy train.

King said he has heard that Kaepernick has “an Islamist girlfriend” who has changed his personal views.

And then he declared, “This is activism that is sympathetic to ISIS.”
