I kinda doubt that a highly paid athlete has ever laced up his combat boots, called his wife and told her goodbye, and then got into a vehicle knowing they may never return.
I kinda doubt they ever got on a plane in the middle of the night, and left their children, to deploy to some third world country. They have never watched their friends die protecting children they never knew.
They have no idea what the words honor, duty, country or sacrifice really means. To these so called ‘social justice warriors’ these words are only catch phrases. In their perfect bubble these words are weightless and have no meaning.
These athletes have no idea what it means to put their lives on the line for a cause greater than themselves. To sit in a briefing and be told there is no chance of them returning from a mission.
They have no clue what it is like to go to hell, dwell there, fight through it, and only want to live in peace after crawling out, of said hell.
This is the only way I can explain their willingness to crap all over a country that has provided them every opportunity to amass unimaginable wealth. A land that has been so cruel and unjust, it changed their entire economical status from impoverished to elite. Yet, they decry the very system that has given them multi-million dollar contracts and endorsements.
That’s gratitude for you.
