Fans are fed up with professional sports leagues and teams wading into the culture war.
The public can’t understand why they won’t just stick to sports.
And George Soros forced the NFL to make one woke move that will leave you red with rage.
Former Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder faced scrutiny from the woke left over the fact that social justice warriors considered the team’s nickname a slur.
A Native American group funded in part by the George Soros-backed Open Society Foundations led the push to force the Redskins to drop their nickname.
“The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), a major Native American rights organization, had issued calls to get rid of the Redskins name for decades. Last week, it touted its efforts at ‘fostering a proactive partnership’ with the NFL team,” Fox News exclusively reported.
“The NCAI is funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations as well as other left-leaning groups. It is also funded through American taxpayer dollars from an array of federal departments, according to claims by the group itself,” Fox News’s report continued.
Congressional Democrats put Snyder under scrutiny and ran an investigation into the Redskins based on allegations of sexual harassment and a toxic work environment leveled by former cheerleaders.
This investigation took place in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter insurrection.
Snyder thought he could buy off the woke mob by throwing the left a bone and dropping the Redskins name in favor of “Washington Football Team” and then the “Washington Commanders.”
But Snyder’s gambit failed, and he eventually sold the team under pressure earlier this year.
Polls showed that nearly 90 percent of Native Americans were not offended by the Redskins nickname.
And a grassroots effort by the Native American Guardians Association (NAGA) gathered over 100,000 signatures to change the team’s name back to the Redskins after one of the new owners – NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson – said everything was back on the table.
Kiowa Tribe member Billy Dieckman explained to Fox News that the “Redskins” nickname paid tribute to the rich history of “elite warriors.”
“The deep, rich history behind the name, the myth that it means bloody scalps or something derogatory is what we’re trying to dispel,” Dieckman stated. “It’s a status symbol for elite warriors.”
Dieckman added that the Blackfoot Tribe bestowed the Redskins nickname on the team to honor one of their great leaders.
“The imagery that you see is that of Chief Two Guns White Calf,” Dieckman added. “That’s a real person. There’s a lot of times they say you need to get rid of your mascot. We don’t have a mascot. That’s a real person that was gifted to the Redskins in the NFL by the Blackfoot tribe as a forever gift. That’s one of the greatest warriors of all time.”
With new ownership taking over, both Washington and the NFL have the chance to correct a woke mistake a George Soros-backed group helped pressure them into making.
