NFL BAD*SS J.J. Watt Just Made Jaw Dropping Show Of Support For US Troops In Afghanistan With A Very Very Special ‘Gift’

As 2017 draws to a close, there are two parallel stories that perhaps best define the current cultural dilemma America finds itself in. Both stories begin on the gridiron within the NFL, and both stories chronicle the journey of two gifted athletes.

One is former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick acknowledged by the mainstream media and by progressive activists for his courage and his “brave stand” against what they term “social injustice.” Moreover nominated as a finalist by Time Magazine, and nominated as “Men of the Year” by GQ Magazine.

Kaepernick’s accomplishments for his “bravery” and “courage” was taking a knee at the playing of our National Anthem, vilifying both our nations police officers and those who’ve worn the uniform…in short disrespecting America and those who’ve served.

The other is Houston Texans All-Star Defensive End J.J. Watt, who is seldom acknowledged by the mainstream media, and ignored by the “social justice” crowd, Time Magazine and of course GQ Magazine.

However nevertheless a hero to those in Houston Texas, after Hurricane Harvey devastated most of the region, Watt’s stepped up and donated $100,000 of his own money, and then raised almost $40-million dollars for the relief and recovery efforts for the Houston area, however he didn’t stop there creating the Justin J. Watt Foundation, he raised an additional $1-million dollars for after-school opportunities for children.

And if that wasn’t enough the AP Defensive Player of the Year in three of his first five seasons, showed once again that he is not just an All-Star on the field but also off it, offering to send an entire unit of soldiers fighting in Afghanistan pairs of his signature new shoes launching Thursday at midnight.

It all started with this Tweet from Watt:

The Tweet got a very quick reply:

Watt didn’t miss a beat and immediately stepped up:

Things escalated quickly inna very amazing way:

Folks on social media were quick to heap praise on the good deeds of J.J.:

No doubt America is a nation divided where sitting on the sidelines, raising a clenched fist in defiance or kneeling at the playing of our National Anthem somehow makes million dollar athletes courageous, winning them respect from a fawning press, while heroes like Watt’s quietly change the lives of thousands of individuals for the better.

Do you believe America is in a cultural divide that will only get worst with time?
