NFL Cutting Breast Cancer & Military Charity Funds To Pay For $89 Million ‘Social Justice’ Activism
The NFL’s support of anything that has to do with “social justice” is just one of many reasons not to watch them, attend the games or buy their stuff ever again.
Did the NFL just declare war on women & the military?
Do you remember how the “kneelers” insisted the protest wasn’t about disrespecting veterans? So, taking money from their charity isn’t a disrespect? Down with the NFL!
The NFL announced this week they will pay $100 million over 7 years to social justice causes. This comes after players continue their kneeling protest of the US National Anthem. But players are reporting the league is taking money from breast cancer and the military to pay for the funding. –TGP
BizPac Review and Slate.com: According to one of the athletes at the forefront of the protests, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid [#35 in the photograph below], the windfall will come at the expense of the league’s planned financial support for breast cancer and military charities.
“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.
Salute to Service supports military personnel and raises awareness of their sacrifices.
“So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one,” he continued.
The player protests, sparked when former 49ers player Colin Kaepernick began protesting racial oppression in America, originated in the liberal city of San Francisco, which found itself in the news this week as a jury acquitted an illegal immigrant who was deported five times for the death of Kate Steinle.
The NFL is toast…They just caved to demands made by players to dump millions into a “social justice” boondoggle aimed at the black community. The problem is that the entire Black Lives Matter scam is a lie AND PLAYERS KNOW IT. There is now discord between players who feel differently about the kneeling protest. A lack of leadership by Goodell to put an end to the protests has harmed the NFL irreparably. The NFL is just another social justice program…BOYCOTT! –100%FedUp.
The agreement does not include language calling for players to end protests during the national anthem in exchange for funds; there’s no implicit quid pro quo. But the NFL hopes this effort will effectively end the peaceful yet controversial movement that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started in 2016, when he refused to stand for the anthem. -ESPN
