Sports Illustrated stirred massive waves of political controversy after announcing, Christine Blasey Ford, will introduce its ‘2018 Inspiration of the Year' Award to the first Nassar accuser.
Sports Illustrated magazine announced they will be honoring Rachael Denhollander with its 2018 ‘Inspiration of the Year’ Award. Rachel will receive this award for being the first brave woman to break her silence, and accuse USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual assault.
Controversially, Sports Illustrated magazine decided it was a good idea to follow the trend of ESPN, and get political with their sports awards. Which ultimately lead to the unintentional digging of their own grave.
The magazine Announced Monday that they will be adopting the left’s tasteless tactics by having Christine Blasey Ford present the ‘Inspiration of the Year’ Award to Rachel Denhollander, who happens to be a REAL victim of sexual assault.
“I am honored to speak with you from afar about a woman I admire so much, a woman who suffered abuse as a vulnerable teenage athlete, who found the courage to talk publicly to stop the abuse of others,” Blasey Ford said. “Her courage inspired others survivors to end their silence, and we all know the result.”
Interestingly enough, the video segment made by Christine Blasey Ford and Sports Illustrated marks her first public statements since testifying against Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavenaugh, back in September. That was when she accused him of sexual assault, specifically, claiming the assault happened during a party while the two were in high school, more than 30 years ago.
Democrats tried to use these allegations for no purpose other than to slander and ruin the name of Brett Kavanaugh, all in the name of politics.
It’s pretty crazy to think a company as established as Sports Illustrated would believe it was proper to give this honor of announcing this award to someone who gained their notoriety by leveling unproven accusations of sexual assault. It’s completely idiotic, and the longtime sports magazine may have shot themselves in the foot.
Although wrong in so many ways, the award should not be overshadowed by Blasey-Ford. All of the focus should be pointed towards Rachael Denhollander, and the bravery of every woman affected by the evil of Larry Nassar. Rachel’s bravery essentially led to her being the first of 300 women to accuse Nassar of sexual assault, exposing him and the vile acts he committed over a long period of time.
Larry Nassar, was sentenced to up to 175 years on Michigan state charges of sexual assault earlier this year. In addition, he was sentenced to another 40 to 125 years in prison on three counts of sexual assault. Nassar was also charged with a 60-year sentence on federal child pornography charges.
