After activist Colin Kaepernick posted an inflammatory tweet on Saturday condemning the Fourth of July as a "celebration of white supremacy," other tweets from the ex-NFL quarterback resurfaced from 2012 and 2011 in which he wished his followers a happy Independence Day.

In 2011, Kaepernick said, "Happy 4th of july everyone I hope everyone has a blessed day":

In 2012 his message was, "Hope everyone has a blessed 4th, as for me I'm on that workout flow first":

? Conservative detractors were quick to note that Kaepernick's pro-Fourth tweets occurred during the Obama administration, while his social-justice protests and aggressive anti-America messages seemingly began in 2016.
