Not that you need it, but here’s MORE proof that Colin Kaepernick‘s protesting of the national anthem is huge and getting bigger by the day.

Time Magazine has placed Kaepernick on the cover of the October 1, 2016 issue. Then, knowing that they’ve got a hot one on their hands, Time decided to tweet and Instagram video of the cover.

The video starts out as the American flag, and then Kaepernick fades in appearing on a knee. It’s a pretty cool dissolve to the cover.

Here’s a taste of the article:

The idea that Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the national anthem is unpatriotic fails doubly: first, in a mistaken notion of what real patriotism is, and second in missing a larger point.

For one, the idea that to not stand while the anthem is played signals a lack of allegiance to one’s nation is simplistic to the point of stretching plausibility, seemingly designed more as a way to hate on someone than to grapple with the complexities of the real world. Is patriotism a matter of either/or? Perhaps in terms of military service, although we find gray lines even there.
