ESPN Anchor Trashes Soldier Killed in Action

Published

on

An ESPN anchor had some crude comments for a conservative commentator who compared former NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s “sacrifice” to that of former NFL player Pat Tillman, who left the league to fight in the Middle East and was killed in action.

“Just putting it out there that Pat Tillman sacrificed just a *bit more than Colin Kaepernick,” said right wing pundit Stephen Miller.

ESPN’s Jamelle Hill shot back, saying “This train is neverrrrrrrrrrrrrr late.”

Making a moral equivalence between Tillman sacrificing his life in combat and Kaepernick losing his NFL career for being a professional distraction is pure absurdity.

Hill must know this, but she simply does not care. She would rather dance on the grave of a dead soldier than admit that perhaps Kaepernick’s stunt is not as valiant as the mainstream press would have Americans believe.

Monday, Nike announced that Kaepernick would be the face of their 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign.

Big League Politics reported:

A former NFL quarterback has been selected as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign for its 30-year anniversary.

Colin Kaepernick Tweeted the first image from this year’s campaign Monday afternoon.

“Believe in something,” he said. “Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt”

Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.

In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.

Kaepernick’s new role at Nike has reignited the debate the NFL’s National Anthem protests, leading to today’s foolishness from Hill.

“That Stuff Ain’t Happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden Ticket”: Fox Sports Broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman Mock Military Jet Flyovers on Hot Mic

Published

on

The top NFL broadcast duo at Fox Sports, Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, mocked military jet flyovers on a hot mic during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Aikman started it all by saying, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”

“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck responded sarcastically.

The most notable and outrageous moment came when Aikman then quipped, “That stuff ain’t happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”

How embarrassing and disgraceful. The NFL has already lost many conservative fans over its aggressively pro-social justice, pro-Black Lives Matter stance, so I guess it’s no surprise that its commentators and broadcasters would be liberal as well.

Many on social media are reacting to the Buck/Aikman hot mic by saying that the flyovers are a waste of money and that there’s nothing wrong with what they said. Aside from the fact that these flyovers are legitimate training exercises, none of them are focusing on Aikman’s last comment about the “Kamala-Biden ticket” (which is in the wrong order, if you didn’t already notice). He’s implying that flyovers honoring the military are nothing more than a partisan display that Democrats would prefer not to see. That’s shameful.
