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.

President Trump kicked off the Daytona 500 NASCAR race in Florida on Sunday, serving as grand marshal of the event and taking a lap around the racetrack in a new state-of-the-art presidential limousine before the start of the race.

Drivers could be heard discussing the president’s motorcade, being a witness to an exciting spectacle in which the formation of vehicles was on display for potentially millions of Americans on a world-famous racetrack.

The limousine is the newest iteration of the official presidential vehicle. Nicknamed “the Beast,” it’s equipped with state-of-the-art security features to protect the president from any bodily harm. Certainly admirers of beautiful cars would be intrigued to get a first-hand look at the unprecedented American engineering involved in its creation.

It’s traditional for the race’s grand marshal to officially kick off the race with the command for the drivers to start their engines.

Daytona International speedway, we love our country… Gentlemen, start your engines!”

The President even expressed his wish to participate as a driver in the great American sporting tradition.

At least one liberal journo has taken to opportunity to trash the Daytona 500 on the event of the President’s participation, revealing their contempt for the blue-collar Americans who largely form the fanbase of NASCAR.

President Trump has always been a fan of sporting events that coastal elites have sneered at, appearing at WWE events years before his political career.

The event all together appears to be a great American display of patriotism and national pride.
