For everyone who opposes NFL players taking a knee for the national anthem, vindication has arrived. Both the organization and the athletes, have been trying to convince people their “activism” is all about social justice and equality. However, new records are surfacing that prove there is more than meets the eye when it comes to their “resistance.”
Significantly, a report from the Washington Times is shedding light on the alliance between the National Football League Player Association and leftist advocacy groups. Many of whom, receive money from the left-wing agitator, George Soros. The group is donating thousands of dollars to groups such as Working America, who spent millions to defeat President Trump.
Specifically, Working America is currently funding an effort to defeat the president’s tax cut plan, calling it the “Trump tax scam.” In addition, tax documents reveal that in 2015 the NFLPA gave money to the Center for Community Change, an anti-Trump resistance group who receives money from Soros’ Open Societies Foundation.
Moreover, the union donated $5,000 in 2013 to the progressive “Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.” Another pro-union group funded by Soros, “Jobs for Justice,” received $5,000 from the NFLPA in 2014. Other contributions have gone to charitable groups for veterans, medical research, and youth outreach.
Interestingly, the NFLPA openly supports players taking a knee in protest. Which, suggests that their actions have more to do with making overt political statements. Association Director, DeMaurice Smith, issued a statement defending players alleging they make many contributions to society:
“NFL players do incredible things to contribute to their communities,” writes Smith. “The NFL players are part of a legacy of athletes. Throughout history, they have chose to be informed about the issues that impact them and their communities.” Rest assured he isn’t talking about issues like domestic violence, drug abuse, and murder.
Nevertheless, despite growing opposition from fans and sponsors, the protests show no signs of ending. NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, is turning a blind eye to the situation and applauding players for their grandstanding. Thanks to Soros, the NFL has become nothing more than a platform for spreading the leftist agenda.
Suffice it to say, NASCAR and hockey are looking better by the minute.
