NFL Fumbles on National Anthem Again While Bowing to SJWs

Owners cater to social justice organizations while avoiding any rules aimed at anthem protests.

National Football League team owners unanimously voted Monday to give $90 million to social justice causes, while they continued to punt on the issue of how to deal with player protests during the national anthem. “The NFL is committing $90 million to a new social justice initiative that supports efforts and programs to combat social inequality. In a memo sent to all 32 teams in early December, the league said it plans to work closely with players, teams and other groups in the new and expanded community improvement program,” a post from the NFL read.

The NFL plans to support three groups, one of which is Dream Corps, an outfit created by CNN commentator and former Barack Obama campaign organizer Van Jones. So much for the NFL’s claim of wanting to avoid politics. This move is explicitly an endorsement by the league of leftist politics. And this, of course, explains why the NFL still refuses to discipline any players who engage in protests during the national anthem.

The joke used to be that the reason soccer was so unpopular within the U.S. was because it was the “socialist sport.” Well, it looks like NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the majority of team owners are bound and determined to take that dubious moniker away from soccer. As if calling American football “football” wasn’t dumb enough… Even after staring at a ratings drop of 9.7% last year alone, the NFL is doubling down by committing itself to that socialist fantasy of absolute equality. The league is evidently unconcerned with alienating its fans all for the sake of placating those noisy “social justice” leftists. Well, we guess this is good news for baseball.
