Earlier this week, the NFL rejected a full-page ad by veterans organization, AMVETS which displayed soldiers holding the flag and containing the words, “Please stand.”
As reported by ESPN, the NFL asked AMVETS to change the language of the ad to something more appeasing such as, “Please Honor our Veterans” or “Please Stand for our Veterans.” The talking points is that the NFL and AMVETS could not come to a meeting of the minds. [See my post at Wow! Magazine entitled, “Outrage after NFL rejects AMVETS Super Bowl ad.”
Thus, the NFL rejected the ad which just so happened to coincide with the NFL’s announcement that it was going full-fledged social justice at this year’s Super Bowl on February 4, 2018.
ESPN reported Monday that the NFL during this year’s Super Bowl will shove social justice down the throats of football fans (my emphasis) by introducing and publicizing it’s “Let’s Listen Together” initiative not to be confused with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move.”
The Communist initiative is a partnership between the NFL and players/SJWs on what else? Social justice issues.
Supposedly, the initiative was several years in the making (not buying it) during which NFL team owners is alleged to have earmarked $89 million over a seven-year period for the initiative.
|The effort is a product of months of discussions between commissioner Roger Goodell and a group of players led by Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and retired receiver Anquan Boldin…|
Well then, the initiative was not several years in the making as the NFL claims.
“The collaboration between the NFL and its players should be celebrated, as it’s the first professional league or entity that has taken the concerns of its players and put resources behind it,” Boldin said in a statement. “Our country has some real issues when it comes to social and racial equality that must be addressed. The only way these issues will get solved is to fight together.”
Said Goodell: “We are pleased to have developed a new initiative that focuses on creating meaningful solutions to improve our communities. In developing this plan, we have taken the lead from our players and are honored to join them in this work. Their work has deepened our understanding of the unique platform we have to help advance progress in a profound and unifying way.”
Roger Goodell, the NFL, team owners and players have chosen Communism over our veterans who served their country, fought in wars around the world so that these ungracious, anti-American loons could enjoy freedom of expression, no matter how vulgar.
Such a reality is not lost on Americans further outraged by the NFL’s latest war on free speech and liberty.
