(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Police officers aren’t the only folks that the “woke” crowd in this country love to attack. The United States military has always been a favorite target of raging radical left-wingers, ever since the days of the Vietnam War when every soldier who risked their lives during that tragic conflict was greeted with shouts of “baby killer” when they arrived home.
What’s ironic is the same individuals calling soldiers “baby killers” were also supporters of abortion. And they still are. The ridiculousness of this conflict of beliefs is seemingly lost on liberals.
Well, the trend of attacking the military continued on Sunday during an NFL pregame show when a couple of announcers were busted disparaging military flyovers, giving yet another reason for fans to switch to a different channel this season.
According to BizPacReview, Fox sportscasters Joe Buck and former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman caused quite a stir when they made negative comments about the military during their pregame show. Of course, liberals were tickled pink that the two were “woke” enough to say what they said, but others felt the comments were disrespectful and just another prime example of how sports are being used as political weapons in modern America.
This moment might have actually been a hot mic with the pair of announcers not even realizing the microphone was on and that they were being recorded. However, the controversial remarks were essentially delivered in the same manner as their commentary.
The two called the flyover a waste of money just before the start of the Buccaneers, Packers game Sunday.

What’s strange is that both Buck and Aikman seem to lean to the right, so the comments were bizarre. This has led some individuals to think they were actually said sarcastically.

“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” Aikman said in the audio recording.
Buck went on to say, “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!”
“That stuff ain’t happening with Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner,” the former Cowboys quarterback added.
You know, there really does seem to be a bit of sarcasm thrown in there. And it’s kind of weird that he reversed the names of the Democratic Party ticket, placing Harris before Biden. Especially since many conservatives tend to believe that Democrats are just using Biden as a front and will replace him with Harris, declaring him unfit for duty due to mental degradation from possible dementia.
That didn’t stop liberals from being super pumped about the comments though.

That’s just a small sample. It actually goes on for quite a bit. But, as stated above, some thought the whole thing was a dig at Democrats.
+1. Seems we both picked up on that possibility … https://t.co/JTU1zUWBT3

Let's check back on that after more info's revealed, eh?
Aikman has donated repeatedly to the RNC and Republican candidates. Buck has been admiringly quoted in Breitbart about his "stick to sports" approach and his chiding other sportscasters to do the same.

I don’t believe he’s being sincere. He’s a Republican who is big on the displays of patriotism. Notice how he says “partner” at the end. It comes across in a condescending and mocking tone.

No matter which direction these comments come from, the bottom line is that sports used to be something that united folks who were from different walks of life together. We used to be able to set aside differences of opinion and thought, just long enough to be fans of something we all loved.
Democrats and liberals have ruined this though by applying pressure to make folks who are involved in professional sports and entertainment take public stands on issues in order to maintain relevance. If they want endorsement deals, they have to be involved in the right causes. Failure to be an activist results in shaming and a loss of revenue.
Welcome to the modern era of political saturation.
