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.

Make-A-Wish Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Will Take Part in Joe Biden’s Inauguration

Naturally.

Vanderbilt University student Sarah Fuller, goalie for the women’s soccer team and erstwhile emergency kicker for the men’s football team, will be taking part in the inauguration of Joe Biden.

USA Today reports that Fuller will participate in a television program titled “Celebrating America,” which will be simulcast the evening of Inauguration Day on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and PBS.

Fuller confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

“It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions,” Fuller tweeted with pictures of herself on the Vanderbilt football field. “This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is the time to #LeadLikeAWoman.”

Multiple guests will appear on the program in addition to Fuller. Tom Hanks is hosting and both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be giving speeches.

Back in November and December the mainstream media lauded Fuller for becoming the first woman to play and then score in a Power Five college football game. In her first appearance she squib kicked the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line and subsequently hurried to the sidelines. In later appearances she made two extra points following Vanderbilt touchdowns.

Fuller became Vanderbilt’s emergency kicker after their starting and backup kickers could not play due to COVID-19 protocols.

Big League Politics previously covered the Sarah Fuller story, specifically the reaction of Jason Whitlock, a conservative-friendly sports writer who once worked for Fox Sports. Whitlock called her appearance a “Make-A-Wish” publicity stunt.
