Ex ESPN Reporter Admires Military “Heroes” And Attacks Kaepernick

Ex ESPN reporter Britt McHenry, who claimed that one of the reasons for her dismissal was her conservative views, on Wednesday made a harsh attack against Colin Kaepernick.

During 2016 season, Kaepernick dishonored his country by refusing to stand for the national anthem. Later he posted on Twitter about his visit to slave prisons in Ghana.

“How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home,” he posted on Twitter.

“Colin Kaepernick can’t get out of his own way. Any good deed he does come at the expense of bashing the United States of America,” she posted on her website.

McHenry stated that in her opinion Kaepernick is very gifted player, and up to 2016, he dedicated to football rather than the headlines. But now, she attacked him for some comments that he made.

“First, let’s list the litany of offensive statements and/or remarks he’s made about law enforcement officers. There were the socks with pigs in police garb. There was the tweet comparing police officers to a modern-day slave patrol. Most recently, on the Fourth of July, there was a tweet asking how Americans could ‘truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs?’” she wrote.

McHenry said that the nationwide celebration of Independence Day should be seen as “a reminder of unity no matter how many efforts you make to dismantle it.”

McHenry also stated that the political acts, not the words, will lead to a change.

“While you focus on your philanthropic efforts, which are admirable, perhaps you can also employ that same effort to go into a voting booth. If you’re going to continually complain about the perceived slights and rights you don’t have, perhaps take the right you do have and back it up,” she wrote.

She personally sees the holiday as “a reminder of the brave men and women protecting our country.”

In her opinion, someone might think that the holiday isn’t enough dedicated on the military.

“But try telling that to a 15-year-old girl that watched with tears in her eyes, as her father deployed to Iraq for 9 months. He left his family, his civilian income, and life as he knew it, to defend a country you have such a difficult time standing for and acknowledging,” she wrote.

Afterward, she described her personal reason why she sees Independence Day through a military family eyes.

“That man was my father and for 9 months I watched as my mother took on the economic hardship of being a single parent. Watching the news every day for any sign her husband might come home,” McHenry wrote.

“Some service members have tweeted they fought for Kaepernick, myself, and anyone else to have freedom of speech. They would be right. But the people who do love and respect those service members can stick up for them, whether they ask for it or not,” she stated.

She talked directly to the people who serve this country.

“You are the true heroes of this country. My admiration will always go towards the men and women who have walked away from their loved ones, through fields of IEDs, and into the dangerous unknown,” McHenry wrote.

McHenry wrote that she did not accept Kaepernick’s move, saying her respect “will never go to the athlete who takes a knee after losing his starting job.”
