Kaepernick Fallacy

    a tendency for Blue Check users to invoke Colin Kaepernick into each story pertaining to an NFL Quarterback, regardless of any context or information. The use of a Kaepernick Fallacy in discourse essentially nullifies the argument at hand.


    Non-Blue Check: “Wow, Aaron Rodgers just signed a huge new contract with the Green Bay Packers.”

    Blue Check: “We need to really be having discussions about why Colin Kaepernick was not considered for the job.”
