The NFL went off the deep end embracing Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American protests.
Now conservatives are pushing back.
And Trey Gowdy destroyed the NFL with a reality check you need to see.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
After the Black Lives Matter insurrection in the summer of 2020 the NFL jumped on the woke bandwagon.
The NFL announced a new “Inspire Change” initiative to fund social justice causes.
These were all left-wing campaigns and many NFL fans would be furious to know the types of groups the NFL funded.
Three of the groups the NFL funneled money to– Vera Institute of Justice, the Oregon Justice Resource Center and the Community Justice Exchange – support defunding the police and abolishing prisons.
On his “Fox News Sunday” program former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy tore into the NFL for attacking law enforcement.
Gowdy expressed bewilderment that the NFL would fund groups that tried to destroy the institution tasked with maintaining order in society when the NFL depended on referees to enforce the league’s rules in order to present an appealing product to fans and TV viewers.
“The NFL is an entity that will fine you for having your shirttail out, or wearing the wrong socks,” Gowdy stated. “They fine players for violating the dress code, the NFL penalizes you if you breathe too hard on a quarterback or hurt the quarterback’s feelings. Touch a referee, and you are gone for a long time,” Gowdy added. “You know what happens if you throw a punch in the NFL? You go to their version of prison.”
“It’s the hypocrisy of building a league based on rules and penalties and referees and punishment, then wanting to do away with that on the larger playing field of life,” Gowdy added.
Gowdy continued on pointing to the number of officials on the field as evidence of the NFL’s commitment to imposing law and order on the field noting that even criticizing the officials was grounds for a fine.
“There are more cops on an NFL football field than anywhere else in the country. They are called referees,” Gowdy continued. “Do you know what happens if you even criticize a referee? You get fined. So why would a league built on rules and punishment want to eliminate the people who enforce our rules and our punishments?”
The NFL defended funding groups supporting defunding the police in a statement to Fox News.
“Our 33 social justice grant partners have been selected based on the critical work that they have done surrounding Inspire Change’s four pillars – education, economic advancement, criminal justice reform, and police & community relations – to break down barriers to opportunity, end systemic racism, and bridge the gap between members of law enforcement and the communities they serve,” the NFL’s statement read.
The NFL has gone full-on woke.
In the 2020 season the league allowed players to wear the name of black Americans killed by police officers on their helmets.
The league played the so-called “black national anthem” before key games and painted BLM slogans in the end zone.
Now the league’s latest assault on law enforcement is financially supporting BLM groups that want to defund the police.
But Trey Gowdy made sure all of America knew about this evil scheme.
