Both tried to speak out about perceived injustices committed by the servants of our Government... But Pat Tillman wasn't just silenced for speaking out - he was killed by members of the US Military - who covered up the crime - lied about the circumstances of his death - and then destroyed his diary. By contrast Kaepernick has gotten-off easy for speaking truth-to-power. That said - in a nation true to its ideals - they would BOTH be revered for the courage they exhibited in trying to change things for the better. Instead Kaepernick is villified by some - and Tillman has been held up as an example of something that didn't really support - at the time of his unsolved killing.

The people dragging Pat Tillman into this debate over the objections of his widow and family ought to be ashamed.

Kaepernick appears to have sacrificed employment prospects in the league. Though winning a lawsuit (and picking up sponsorship money from Nike) may repair the damage to his finances - his chances of having a Hall of Fame type career go down - because of lost playing time, while in his prime.

While he has gained prestige with decent folks - he's lost popularity with jingoists and white supremacy supporters. So it may wind up being worth it, in his mind. It is an important issue that needed attention. He (and Nike, both) helped keep it in the public eye - and inspired wider discussion and debate. His stock (and Nike's) have both gone up in my mind.

For those of you that think you know the situation watch this video at your leisure and let someone who has done the research and collected the facts inform you! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=465060893980519&id=1139608626191999&refsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fm.facebook.com%2Flefttheleftshow%2Fvideos%2F465060893980519%2F&_rdr

Just a bunch of half-baked opinions, and misleading stats and figures. The fact that people are talking about the issue is what will get it changed. Where he gives money is secondary. The solutions aren't legislative - murder, manslaughter and use of excessive force are already a crime... So I find her unconvincing - but she has herself convinced and you too, it sounds like. Whether he could lead the 49'ers is questionable (could anyone? Mike Singletary couldn't) but he has taken the lead, bringing attention to a cause. More power to him.

Without having done so - I have no doubt that he would have been picked up by someone - even if only as a backup. He has experience and can run an offense.

It's much easier to talk shit and criticize than lead a movement (which she clearly doesn't truly support). If I had a million dollars - I'd give it to the October 22nd Coalition/Stolen Lives Project... But that's me. He isn't as radical - but that doesn't mean that he isn't committed. He's entitled to his own brand of activism and speech. She's entitled to hers. But I like his better. She's lame.

How was that half baked opinions and misleading stats and figures??? She did the research and tracked down the paper and money trail!!! The point is he’s full of it!! 1 our 31 charities even romotely has anything to do with his so called cause?

Nothing is going to change, at least not by his doing in any way. If he wanted to instill some real change he’d volunteer his time at shelters or mentoring at risk children, be a big brother to a kid or two.. he’d do a hell of a lot more good that way than just sitting on his ass collecting a paycheck for doing nothing and then saying he’s committed to bringing about social justice.

Bottom line is his career was spiraling downward, he’s dating an antifa mouthpiece, she put the idea in is head that he needed “attention” and to do something and we are now here, your sjw is nothing but a hollow idol just looking to get paid.

I would have actually respected the guy had he followed through on what he started.

You and she are against his cause - and are looking for reasons to bag on him. I found her points - weak. I'd be happy to debate her publicly. She takes her figures and stats out of context.

When his career was on the rise - we didn't have so many cases in the public eye...or have a President and Attorney General in office with a theoretical inclination to do something about it (in fact neither showed much leadership on the issue of black lives - Zimmerman was a ripe case for a Federal Civil rights beef, as was Michael Brown in Ferguson, and several others - that they did NOTHING about). He took advantage of the issue and moment - but I see that as a positive. Those of us who'd been protesting this issue for years were being ACTIVELY ignored by the media. In 2000 the October 22nd coalition march got attacked by the LAPD - protestors beaten and teargassed etc. - and the local media barely mentioned it... And where they did - they justified a police riot.

Money won't solve the problem - conciousness will. He has helped raise the conciousness of all but the most willfully ignorant. He brought the issue into the eyes of a lot of unrepentant rednecks... And a lot of people who were just unaware are thinking about the subject. We'll never get you or your spokesmodel... But we don't need you, really. We just need a super-majority of the populace and we are well on our way. Kaepernick didn't start the movement - but he has used the attention on him to keep the discussion going in the right direction. Having a President who identifies with ostentatious displays of faux-patriotism and racism, against him - has only helped the cause.

How has he failed to follow through? If he were playing he would still be taking a knee. Meanwhile - he is remaining vocal and in the public eye. He is encouraging other players to continue and expand the protests until we have movement on the issue.

Focusing on the 10 points of his program doesn't mean that there isn't more to it. If they train people how to defend those rights in practical ways - that too will be a good thing. And they wouldn't do a presentation if the bullet points were all there was.

You could make the same attacks - in the other direction against Jon Voight. I won't waste my breath uttering his name. He's a b-list actor and my criticism would only serve to raise his public profile.

Kaepernick was already well-off. If he only wanted money there are other easier ways to get it - by going WITH the program.

"Muh. Quit stalking me"
Is it so crazy to understand that I had a plan for you?
You were my little attack at dog. I pointed you attacked. I got tired of you I began to troll you.
Now you're mad.
You go around accusing ppl of being bots.
I simply got you to show me all of your alt accounts.
Now. If you think posting comments is some how going to hurt me ho ahead. It's the internets. I've said way worse. Lol.
And so have you.
I'm sorry I trigger you so much and you hold grudges from 2 years ago.
Jack_henoff, vagisolbond, laonside, and 1redshoe are all your accounts that I know of.
I take screenshots too love.
Pathetic and sad.

Modda and I are different folks - in MANY ways. To the extent that he goes after you - I forget that we used to have beef. Pretty sure that laonsite isn't modda either.
reply

I dont need anyone to believe me. I'm not gonna go on a tirade. Sukamydick, vagisilbond, modda, and jack_henoff are all the same.
Once modda disappeared I was immediately attacked by a new account jack_henoff, so we made a deal and started trolling Islamic sympathisers. Then he made the sukamydick account, then the vagasilbond account. They're all gential references, he thought that was clever.
Meanwhile I was having fun.
But I dont really care. A chinese bot is going to do chinese bot things.

A false dilemma is a type of informal fallacy in which something is falsely claimed to be an "either/or" situation, when in fact there is at least one additional option. Plus, your characterization of the protest is inaccurate. He took a knee in protest of social injustice. He intended to use his fame to raise awareness of the injustice.

Currently the US military is protecting ISIS in At Tanf in Syria - heres the bullshit -
""The United States does not seek to fight the Russians, the government of Syria or any groups that may be providing support to Syria in the Syrian civil war. However, the United States will not hesitate to use necessary and proportionate force to defend US, coalition or 'PARTNER FORCES' (emphasis added), as we have clearly demonstrated in past instances," Robertson said.

The exercises come as the Trump administration continues to deliver increasingly strident warnings over an assault on Idlib.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned Friday that if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russia, and Iran carry out an assault on Idlib, "the consequences will be dire.""

Genocide...I do not think it means...what you think it means.

Celebrity culture is vapid and meaningless. However, when a celebrity leverages that attention to achieve something positive - I think it is a good thing. Greater accountability for killer cops is a good thing, in my view.

Ending the US/Saudi/Israeli reign of terror in SW Asia - would also be a good thing.
