Brett Favre Goes Full On ‘Woke’ With Ridiculous Comparison Made Between Pat Tillman And Colin Kaepernick

(Tea Party PAC) – Legendary NFL quarterback Brett Favre has decided to throw his lot in with the “woke” crowd to try and still keep himself relevant and in the spotlight, opting to champion failed fellow quarterback and political activist Colin Kaepernick. Kaerpernick’s only real claim to fame is taking a knee during the National Anthem as a totally disrespectful form of protest against “police brutality.”

This little act of defiance spread throughout the sports world as athletes, desiring to look cool, hip, and relevant — you’ll see that word a lot in topics like this because it is one of the top motivations for the behavior these guys are engaged in — and has caused more than a little controversy.

Favre recently compared Kaepernick to former NFL player and Army Ranger Pat Tillman. You’ll see why that is so offensive in just a moment.

Via Breitbart:

Brett Favre says that Colin Kaepernick’s decision to forego his NFL career in order to continue his anthem protests and social justice movement, is a sacrifice in league with former NFL player and Army Ranger Pat Tillman.

Further, Favre believes that eventually Kaepernick, like Tillman, will be thought of as a “hero.”

In a recent interview with TMZ, the former Packer legend went in-depth on his reasoning for believing that Kaepernick deserves heroic status for his protests and movement.

“It’s not easy for a guy his age — black or white, Hispanic, whatever — to stop something that you’ve always dreamed of doing, and put it on hold, maybe forever, for something that you believe in,” Favre explained.

“I can only think of right off the top of my head, Pat Tillman is another guy that did something similar,” Favre said. “And, we regard him as a hero. So, I’d assume that hero status will be stamped with Kaepernick as well.”

This is a totally disrespectful comparison to make. Favre should be absolutely ashamed of himself. Tillman opted to walk away from a multi-million dollar deal with the then St. Louis Rams in order to serve his country as an Army Ranger. He was later killed in Afghanistan in a friendly-fire incident that occurred in 2004.

Tillman is an American hero who signed up to go fight for the principles our nation stands for, all of which are represented in the flag of our nation. A flag that ignorant folks like Kaepernick have spit on repeatedly with their little act of protest.

Colin Kaepernick walked away from a contract offer with the 49ers at the end of the 2016 season, to become a free agent. While the 49ers have maintained that Kaepernick would have been cut at the end of that season for financial reasons, there’s also no indication that Kaepernick believed he was walking away from football altogether when he walked away from San Francisco. In fact, his agents remained quite active in trying to find a new NFL home for him after the 49ers.

So, Favre’s comparison between Tillman – who absolutely did know he was walking away from the NFL in particular and potentially life in general, when he joined the Rangers. And Kaepernick, who at the time thought he was merely leaving San Francisco for another team, is tortured to say the least.

Nonetheless, Favre maintains that Kaepernick can probably still play.

“I thought he was a dynamic player when he was playing in his prime,” Favre said. “He’s still young and hasn’t been hit in several years, so there’s no reason to think that he’s lost that much of a step.”

It’s despicable to make such a comparison. Favre owes the family of Tillman a huge apology. Taking a knee in the middle of a professional sporting event does not take courage. It’s the act of a petulant child wanting to draw attention to himself, hoping to give his life meaning and purpose through activism.

There’s nothing wrong with activism. However, when you abuse your platform for it and exercise that right when it is inappropriate to do so, you leave yourself open to criticism. And that’s precisely what Kaepernick has received.

Favre needs to get a clue and let go of his pull toward the limelight. He had his time to shine. It’s over now.

  5. It is truly remarkable as a quarterback in the NFL I was not necessarily a Green Bay Packer fan but I always enjoyed and respected visibility on the field but in one statement I have no respect for you Kaepernick is a coward and now you have join him as a coward I am a Philadelphia Eagles fan and when they start taking a knee I didn’t watch my team the whole year and I didn’t watch them win the Super Bowl because some of the Eagles took a knee also I did watch last season but after this coming from the man that I respected as a quarterback I will never watch another NFL game again move to China Brett take Kaepernick with you you’re both cowards

  7. The problem with these over played jocks they have never served America they serve themselves. They are played more than a soldier serving America. They have no respect,no morals,and selfish to the end. NFL and NASCAR should be boycotted and their sponsors. American people made them what they are and now this is the thanks they get. They know vets and soldiers still serving watch them ,but are showed no respect. It will be rough but needs to be done.

  8. I think Brett took many hits to the head to say such a comment. There is no comparison
    between P. Tillman (all class) and the ever classless and whinny Kaepernick.

    Football players hardly compare to MILITARY MEN !!!!!!!!!!!

  9. To compare a man that went to war to defend his country and flag to some individual that total disregard for our National Anthem and flag is totally asinine. Any one that compares Pat Tillman to Colin Kaepernick definitely owes the Tillman family an apology. I assume Colin Kaepernick graduated from college, but probably didn’t do to well in US history or civics. Maybe Bret suffered from the same short comings.

  10. Tillman fought for The Constitution a proven “best of all” modes of government, law and freedoms. The freedoms and rights that the ignorant spit on. On the other hand Kaepernick and Nike prefer their version of rights that apparently Bret has bought into through his addiction for notoriety:
    THE KAEPERNICK / NIKE 10-POINT SYSTEM OF RIGHTS:
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE FREE… …THOUGH YOU OPPRESS, BULLY, SEGREGATE, DENY OTHERS THEIRS.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HEALTHY… …WITHOUT PARTICIPATION AT SOMEONE ELSE’S EXPENSE.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE BRILLIANT… …WITHOUT ANY EFFORT, WORK OR ACCOMPLISHMENT ON YOUR PART.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE… …BUT YOU CAN’T USE TOOLS OR THE CONSTITUTION TO DEFEND / PROTECT YOURSELF.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE LOVED… …EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE A HATEFUL, RACIST HYPOCRITE.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE COURAGEOUS… …SO LONG AS NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO CHALLENGE YOU.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE ALIVE… …AND EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO PROVIDE YOU A LIFE.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TRUSTED… …EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE A CONNIVING LIAR AND CHEAT.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE EDUCATED… …BEYOND YOUR ABILITY AT SOMEONE ELSE’S EXPENSE.
    –YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS… …ESPECIALLY WHAT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT A RIGHT.

    MAYBE NIKE DID, IN FACT, PICK THE CORRECT POSTER “CHILD” IN KAEPERNICK: CHILD—IMMATURE, NOT FULLY DEVELOPED IN EXPERIENCE OR EDUCATION AND UNABLE TO DIFFERENTIATE FACT FROM FICTION.

    SUGGESTED AMENDMENTS:

    YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BE INNOCENT…
    (EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE FOUND GUILTY BASED ON FACT EVIDENCE)
    YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO ETHNICITY…
    (TO GAIN ADVANTAGE EVEN IF IT ISN’T TRUE, LOWERS STANDARDS AND SEGREGATES THE PEOPLE AND
    PROMOTES RACISM)
    YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO VOTE…
    (EVEN IF YOU ARE LEGALLY INELIGIBLE TO VOTE AND/OR INCOMPETENT
    TO VOTE)
    YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO TEACH…
    (EVEN THOUGH YOU TEACH UNTRUTH, HATE, DIVISION AND DISREGARD FOR LAW AND RIGHTS)

    NIKE ORIGINAL MOTTO

    “JUST DO IT”

    WE DON’T CARE IF IT IS UNTRUTHFUL, HATEFUL, MALICIOUS, RACIST, ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, OR ALL OF THEM.

    NIKE NEW MOTTO WITH ITS NEW POSTER CHILD, KAEPERNICK

    “BELIEVE IN SOMETHING EVEN IF IT MEANS SACRIFICING EVERYTHING”

    WE STILL DON’T CARE IF IT IS UNTRUTHFUL, HATEFUL, MALICIOUS, RACIST, ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, OR ALL OF THEM…
    …AND DESTRUCTIVE TO YOU, EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING.

    AND AS ALWAYS THE MOTIVATOR IS:

    SO NIKE AND KAEPERNICK GET RICH WHILE GAINING NOTORIETY WHILE MANIPULATING THE FEEBLE MINDS OF SOCIETY WITH FALSE HISTORY AND FALSE TEACHINGS TO BELIEVE IN FALSE CAUSES, TO PROMOTE “DIVERSITY” (AKA SEGREGATION) AND RACISM, TO CAUSE VIOLENT CIVIL UNREST / RIOTS, TO SPREAD HATE AND TO CONTROL BY FEAR.

  11. I have an idea. Why don’t we ban going to all professional sporting events? How long will these athletes and owners last when the can’t make enough money to make their payments? Also we can stop buying goods from those that pay to sponsor these events. That should send a message loud and clear.

  12. Brett Favre has been my football hero for years! Yeah, Green Bay Packers!! However, I am extremely disappointed in Brett’s decision to compare Colin Kaepernick, a radical anti-American to Pat Tillman who gave his life for his country!! Favre’s thinking has become warped in his old age!!

  13. Tillman walked away form his NFL career to DO SOMETHING for this COUNTRY and is a HERO.

    KAPa walked away from nothing (he was done as an NFL player) to do nothing for this country and is a shame to this country.

    KAPa got paid for millions ( that he never have earned in the NFL) for hating this country.

    TILLMAN got a grave for standing up for this country.

    BIG, BIG difference between the two, one was a man the other a shame>

  14. Number four should pull his head out of the southern part of his body. I was a tremendous fan of number four until now. As a veteran, I cannot place Kaepernick
    in the same category as a true American hero as Tillman. Kaepernick left the NFL to face individuals with different beliefs, not bullets, than his. Tillman took up the oath to protect America against all enemies, domestic and foreign. This placed Tillman in very vulnerable. life-threatening situations. Ultimately, Tillman gave his life carrying out that oath to protect all ethnic groups from those who would destroy the United States of America. Brett, pull your head out, because it was a crappy decision on your part.

  15. I always thought Favre that was a moron, but this proves it. This is a huge insult to Pat Tillman’s family and all of the military. What does Favre think about Kaepernick wearing socks that depicted policemen as pigs? What does he think about Kaepernick’s Che Guevara T-shirt? What does he think about the kind words he had for Cuba and Fidel Castro? I was never a fan of Favre but this cements my disgust for him and any product he markets. If the NFL gives Kaepernick a high-paying job (as rumored) promoting social consciousness, I hope that they fail, as well.

  16. I live in Mississippi and Brett Favre has taken too many hits to the head. There is no way in HELL that kaepernick is any hero compared served and died for defending the US Constitution. Except Benedict Arnold.

  17. Farve you are an absolute and complete jerk Colon wouldn’t even make a pimple on Pats ass and for you to try and compare the two is completely absurd Kapernick is a complete puke that deserves absolutely no recognition or status at all I and I am sure with all the other Americans that read your ridiculous comments apologize to the Tillman family because I don’t think you have the guts to and don’t ever open your mouth in public again

  18. Favre is another half wit! This is despicable and he does own an apology! What a moronic comparison! Tillman gave his life for our nation and flag and Kaepernick spits on it. It is a very scary and sad future we are heading for.
    TRUMP 2020 or we fall!

  19. Favre you will suck a Donkey’s ass want you > Don’t compare Tillman to this to this trader I hope they let him play there must be one patriot in the NFL that would put that clown away . You 2 together could not carry Tillman’s shoes

  20. Surely this a miss quote by Favre, I would have to see this coming out of his mouth to believe this, I think Favre is a better person then this, or he could have been drunk.

  21. Another superstar falls to the wussification of professional athletes and sports. Will never look at this guy the same sign and not because I’m a Bears’ fan. He will always be in the top tier of NFL QB’s but not as a man to admire and respect. He just destroyed that image. But he got short-term attention in the process, apparently ignorant of the fact of what he has done to his long term image in the eyes of true NFL fans.

  22. Bret Favre is a sell-out, a has been, a jerk to the help the anti american media of the NFL!
    PAT TILLMAN WAS A HERO, HE WAS A CERTIFIED HERO OF OUR NATIONAL BELIEF THAT ALL PEOPLE ARE REPRESENTED BY OUR COUNTRY. HE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR OUR FREEDOM-(HIS LIFE FOR OUR COUNTRY YOU STUPID DEMENTED FOOTBALL PLAYER) Colin Kapernick has done nothing, BUT make a lot of money tearing down the US! DIVIDING US! HE’S AN ANTIFA TERRORIST!
    KAPERNICK, DOESN’T DESERVE BEING COMPARED OR EVEN CONSIDERED IN THE SAME CLASS AS PAT TILLMAN A NATIONAL HERO TO OUR COUNTRY!

    • Amen friend you said it well. Favre was a great quarterback but apparently he is no patriot but a certified liberal.

  23. Now you know why I don’t watch NFL . . . and I NEVER will, when the NFL is ALSO behind all this “woke” nonsense. One Disgusted Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  24. Bret Favre is a moron who should not be discussing anything of importance. He’s just another washed up quarterback who is attempting to stay relevant. He needs to retire to his basement never to be heard from again. He really needs to understand that God gave him a strong right arm not a strong brain. I really hope that Favre doesn’t think that he’s a hero; far from it. Favre needs to attempt to recall a little history. Not only is he attempting to give relevance to another washed up quarterback but also to a black racist quarterback. Kaepernick didn’t become an activist until he was benched in favor of a white quarterback. In order
    to disrupt the team, Kaepernick took on a cause that he knew would divide and disrupt his team, which it most certainly did. Kaepernick was not even a good
    “team” player. Favre, just get it over with, and apologize for being born white but never speak again of true American heroes who died so scum like you and your
    new best buddy can spew your hate of this country.

    I just wish that the NFL would move to China, and take people like you and your new buddy with them. That’s really where you belong.

  25. The more these sports 🏈🏀⚽️⚾️ people voice their opinions, the more sports 🏈🏀⚽️⚾️ fans are turning off. We don’t pay you to voice anything during a game, we pay you to play the sport. And yes, we the fans, pay you, because without us you wouldn’t be getting the big bucks. You want to stand up for something then do it off the field and stop doing it for recognition.
    Try getting together and help make this country great again like “OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP” is doing. May God have mercy on this country.🇺🇸🙏

  26. These great football players are tarnishing themselves instead of trying to appear supportive. The real Americans are the ones being disrespected. Those that died for us. Those so he could play football. The NFL is no longer a great American sport. They let Kaepernick destroy their image with their “awokeness”. They should all keep their mouths shut and not say anything. When these Marxist try to take over America who will they fight for? They need to remember who are the ones who buys the tickets. It’s not the members of BLM or Antifa. They are both terrorist groups. Just because they use a Good name for a title doesn’t mean they are, as evidence. Shame on you Brett. Anyone else out there keep your mouths shut. I already lost respect for Brees when he disrespected his grandparents and couldn’t stick to his original statement because of peer pressure. Do not disrespect the flag which gives us freedom. Nor do you bow down to anyone but God!

  27. Another useless has been desperately trying to make himself relevant! Go away you sausage polisher! The only thing Colon compares with is an irritable bowel!

  28. Brett, did you get hit in the head to many times. So you believe that someone who fought and died for our flag and someone who disrespects our flag are the same. Brett your retired, keep it that way your damaging your career for someone who could care less about you. I agree you need to apologize to the Tillman family and all of the other proud men and women who gave their lives so you can live free. So what are going to do when you hear our national anthem, take a knee? Why don’t you take a hike!

  29. K will never be a hero in the real world of Real Americans. He is a whining child in a grown body that is all! Pat Tillman is and always be a Real Hero to America! NO COMPARISON here at all! Never watching my favorite game ever again! Let him go over seas to play and never let him back in our country!!!

  30. obviously -all the hits and jostling of the game have at last settled in and now bret
    has lost his sanity-he needs to go to the home and stop making repulsive comparisons and addled remarks in public-

  31. Seems like all the misguided celebrities’ wantabees want recognition. Bret needs to stay on the farm and preserve his great football feat.

  32. I am truly disappointed in Brett Favre. I am not a NFL fan by no means but my grandson truly admired Brett Favre . To compare a true hero(Pat Tillman) to Colin Kaepernick is very hard to fathom. There is no comparison I truly fee.l that Brett Favre owes Pat Tillman’s family an apology. I hope he did not do this to get attention. He has had his glory and should just accept that there comes a time to step back and step down. If he doesn’t there will come a time he will be remembered for his foolish statement and not for the good Quarterback he was. Wake up Brett
