Just in case you needed another reason to believe the NFL’s anthem protests were a direct slap in the face from the left, you won’t believe what new documents have revealed about who the NFL’s union has been donating to and associated with.
It can probably be said that all annoying leftist protests movements lead to George Soros, and in the case of the NFL anthem protests and the leftist culture of the organization, it appears that is the case as well. Go figure!
Recent tax documents have revealed that the recent feud between the NFL and Donald Trump go way beyond the President’s recent antagonizing tweets. In 2015, the NFL Players Association, which is a member of the AFL-CIO, donated $5,000 to the Center for Community Change Action, a direct recipient of funds from George Soros’ Foundation for Open Society, as well as Jobs with Justice, another Soros-affiliated group.
The Center for Community Change Action listed Planned Parenthood as a donor in 2015 as well.
The NFLPA also donated to Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, which the Washington Times reports spent $1 million in 2016 against the Trump campaign.
It would be a stretch to say George Soros is personally influencing the anthem protests, but the politics of the NFLPA is clear, and very left-leaning. Not to mention uninterested in what the fans of their football player members think of their controversial and petty anthem protests.
By the time the President started his Twitter tirade against the players who had been kneeling, they’d already donated large sums of money to stop his campaign. Naturally, they released a statement in the midst of the drama that sounds like it’s right out of the SJW playbook:
“The comments were a slap in the face to the civil rights heroes of the past and present, soldiers who have spilled blood in countless wars to uphold the values of this great nation and American people of all races, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations who seek civil progress as a means to make this country, and this world, a better place,” said NLFPA president Eric Winston in a September 23rd statement.
If the NFLPA cares so much about civil rights heroes and people of all races, why are they donating to organizations that also receive funds from Planned Parenthood, a murderous abortion mill that ends the lives of hundreds of thousands people of color every year?
And what, by the way, does the anthem kneeling have anything to do with gender and sexual orientation?
This is intersectional politics 101. The anthem protest isn’t about civil rights or equality, it’s simply more leftist whining from wealthy, privileged football players who think they are making a bold statement when they’re really just making the fans who pay their salaries angry.
