The radical Left is on the march through American institutions.
Sports leagues are no longer safe from the incursion.
And activists smeared the NFL and Fox News as “racist” for a mind-boggling reason.
Now that Donald Trump is out of the White House and banned from all social media platforms, the Democrats are in desperate search of a new villain.
Thus far, the Left has settled on Fox News as the pinnacle of all evil in the United States.
That’s why left-wing activists for the NAACP pressured NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to divest from Fox (who’s broadcast NFL games since 1994) because of the association to Fox News.
Derrick Johnson, president of the NAACP, wrote in a letter to Goodell:
“Unfortunately, not all public influencers are willing to dedicate resources to achieving social equity. Notably, Fox News continues to inflame racial division and propagate an unstable political climate…The NFL’s programming should not be used as a bargaining tool for Rupert Murdoch to help fund Fox News’ hatred, bigotry, lies and racism.”
The Left is openly pushing for fascism.
If they can’t accomplish ideological lockstep through state action, they’ll shamelessly attempt to do it through social strong-arming tactics.
“We are all familiar with the depths of manipulation and polarizing tone Fox News is willing to espouse. It remains to be seen whether the NFL will act to safeguard its players and fans from further exploitation, by prohibiting the media conglomerate from unduly capitalizing on the largesse of its corporate affiliations, and utilizing the enrichment to destabilize our democracy.”
This is the absurd narrative the Left has been pushing since the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th.
Apparently it undermines democracy to have one network that isn’t a leftist propaganda network.
Goodell isn’t going to turn down billions of dollars in a television deal with Fox, but the NAACP knows that.
They just want a shakedown from the NFL as a commitment to “social equity,” and the NFL is a soft target.
Goodell has been weak in the face of the anti-American anthem protests that have tarnished the league’s brand over the past five years.
Radical leftists aren’t even hiding the ball anymore.
They’re flat-out saying they want equality of outcome, which is the bedrock of socialism.
This idea has become mainstream Democrat thinking, and it’s seeped into organizations like the NFL to the point where marquee athletes are regurgitating these talking points.
The NFL kicked off the 2020-21 season by playing the unofficial black national anthem in series with the Star-Spangled Banner.
The Left is actively trying to divide the country along identity lines, but too many cowardly institutions are going along with it.
Democrats will keep hammering away at Fox News until more organizations cave.
Two California congressmen wrote a threatening letter to cable providers to essentially take Fox News off the air, so these absurd attacks will continue until people stop entertaining these nonsensical smears.
