Kolin Kaepernick debuted a new fund that would allocate all funds to pay for the legal fees of rioters, whom he called “freedom fighters” despite the fact that many have been violent and destructive, according to The Daily Wire.

“In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation,” Kaepernick posted to Twitter on Friday. “We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by [Your Rights Camp],” an organization founded by the former QB.

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” he wrote. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”

Politicians like failed presidential candidate Julián Castro, open socialist New York City Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have all donated to ActBlue, which is a charity that is ultimately used for “bail funds.”

Chrissy Teigan promised $200,000 as bail money for criminal rioters, posting to Twitter: “In celebration of whatever the f*** maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country.”

Actor Steve Carell donated $1,000 to the rioters’ bail via a donation to the “Minnesota Freedom Fund.”

Seth Rogan promised $1,000 to the same fund, along with Janelle Monae, and Don Cheadle.

“At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment,” Reuters reported, The Daily Wire noted. “The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.”
