Kayleigh McEnany Overrules Critics: ‘Tony Dungy Is a Man of Character, Faith, Great Wisdom’

Fox News star Kayleigh McEnany has fired back at critics after Hall of Fame football coach Tony Dungy announced that he will be attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C., triggering a backlash from the Left.

The two-time Super Bowl champion said he will attend the pro-life march “to support those unborn babies who don’t have a voice.”

“Tomorrow Lauren and I will be in Washington DC attending the 2023 March For Life,” Dungy said.

“It will be my first time at the March and I’m looking forward to joining my friend @BenjaminSWatson and thousands of others who will be there to support those unborn babies who don’t have a voice.”

Dave Zirin, the sports editor for The Nation, said he is “done with Tony Dungy and the way the NFL and NBC coddle his right-wing extremism.”

Zirin said: “He said publicly and proudly that he would not want gay football player Michael Sam on his team.

“He said over a decade ago that he disagreed with the ‘lifestyle’ of Jason Collins, the first out active male gay player in the main four North American sports.

“This is a Dungy staple, calling being LGBT a ‘lifestyle,’ even after people have said to him repeatedly how hurtful and outdated such a description is. He simply doesn’t care.

“This is a staggering indictment of the politics the NFL and the network’s partners allow and the kind that they condemn.

“When someone like, gee, I don’t know, Colin Kaepernick steps up and kneels down to end police violence and racial inequity, he becomes a pariah.

“Meanwhile, Dungy is held up as a deeply religious man and nearly a patron saint of the league.

“Dungy has used his devoutness as a cover for his anti-gay rhetoric and sharing platforms with unapologetic bigots.

“If Dungy wants a show on ‘The Daily Wire,’ more power to him.

“But his being center stage on the most watched program in the country makes NBC and the NFL complicit in his disinformation and political posturing.

“Like Dungy, neither NBC nor the NFL has commented about his latest eruption. But their silence speaks volumes.

“It’s a silence that’s almost as loud as Dungy’s hateful blather, almost as loud as the thousands of people descending upon Washington—some mandatorily—to celebrate a fascistic, discredited Supreme Court and the loss of our rights.

“It’s shameful. And we should not be afraid to say so,” he said.

Enter McEnany, who said:

“Tony Dungy is a man of character, faith, and great wisdom.

“He and his wife have courageously stood for innocent children and their right to life.

“Well done Coach.”
