Scroll down to watch “Selfish Athletes Don’t “Battle” and are NOT “Warriors” video

 

This Vietnam veteran has had enough! Tonight we explain the difference between a real warrior and a man who plays with a ball…

For decades selfish athletes have come out and made it all about themselves, not paying respect to those who have sacrificed their own lives so that these “athletes” can be in the spotlight, to begin with.




Many of these same athletes also speak badly about their own country which made them who they are and even disrespect the flag.

It is a disgrace and the veteran community is tired of it, completely.

little upset here i’m just tired of the
word battle okay let me tell you again
tired of this with these athletes
basketball players baseball not baseball
players too much but like football
players basketball players they’re in
the battle all the time do you know what
a battle is a battle is a
war
a confrontation between enemy forces
slinging
guns artillery shells mortars
airplane bombs whatever on each other
and heavy casualties and death and
destruction you don’t battle you know
battle for a basketball that’s going out
of bounds you don’t battle for a rebound
come on you got to be kidding me when
you get this idea it’s a battle
so
tonight we got a little bit of a thing
going on here
and i’m going to take
this
off right now and we’re going to talk
about the battle
so
let me hear what you have to say
when
you go up for a rebound and you wrestle
the ball away from your
competitor
what’s what’s what is that that’s part
of the battle is that a skirmish
and somebody swipes uh
uh or steals the ball is that an ambush
what is that you like
i don’t get it
somebody blocking a shot is that like a
a rocket
uh intercepting another rocket
or shooting down an airplane
you got a lot of
a lot of comparisons to
to war
but come on guys
you just you’re just playing the game
and again and
on the other hand
some of you guys are kneeling down about
the american flag
and for veterans that sucks you’re not
going to do that
it’s best you could do it all you want
but you’re not going to be approved
there are a bunch of people like colin
kaepernick and
lebron we just talk about the things i’m
talking about about battling about
disrespect about taking a knee
this country give you the most
opportunity you’ve ever received
anywhere in the world at any time
you’re making millions and hundreds of
millions of dollars
not only from your sport but for ads and
whatever
advertisements
come on
you got to be kidding me
the the veteran community is not happy
with that and you could say what you
want and think what you want
but
boy to use the word battle
when you’re playing the basketball game
when the guys today is still fighting
well recently they got out of
afghanistan for a change
maybe get ambushed
or morted
my own company got morted we lost 13
guys killed and 22 wounded in about 10
seconds when our own
mortars fell short and killed us
took out a third of the company
come on
please have some respect
for the veterans that do battle every
day
or protect us from the battle
that we don’t have to fight every day

world it’s giving you opportunity like
you’ve never heard or had before
