Politicians have gotten their foot in the door into the sports world.
Fans are being subjected to an onslaught of politicization.
Now Democrats are railroading one NFL owner for a terrifying reason.
The left is out to get Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder.
Not only does the corporate press hate Snyder, but the Democratic Party now has its sights on Snyder.
The big problem that Snyder faces is being a Republican in arguably the most powerful Democratic stronghold in the country, Washington, D.C.
Snyder has few allies around in the belly of the beast, and the Democrats took their opportunity to draw blood.
Snyder, who once vowed that he would never change the “Redskins” franchise moniker, eventually caved to the mob after allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct rocked the organization.
After the death of George Floyd, the left was finally successful in coercing Snyder to change the name.
But Snyder has been unable to fend off the hounds.
House Democrats are investigating his organization for some unknown reason.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, one of the members of the far-left “Squad,” pestered NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to get rid of Snyder during a House Oversight Committee session.
Tlaib said, “Will you remove him?”
Goodell responded, “I don’t have the authority to remove him.”
Tlaib has no concept of the NFL or sports at all, but she and the Democrats have been given the greenlight to take Snyder out.
It makes no sense that Congress is investigating a football team for allegations of sexual harassment.
Republican Congressman James Comer explained, “The Democrats’ sham investigation into the Washington Commanders continues to be an egregious waste of taxpayer-funded resources. The Oversight and Reform Committee’s sole mission is to ensure the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the federal government. From the beginning, committee Democrats weaponized their power and pushed a one-sided investigation into a private company with no connection to the federal government.”
This is obviously correct.
It’s an abuse of power intended to pressure Snyder out of ownership of the Commanders.
Democrats want somebody in control of that franchise that has the correct politics.
Comer continued, “This entire charade is undoubtedly an attempt to distract the American people from President Biden’s self-inflicted crises. Americans are suffering from historic inflation, rising gas prices, infant formula shortages, and a border crisis raging out of control. It’s past time for committee Democrats to uphold their responsibilities and ensure the Biden administration is held accountable.”
The left smells blood in the water with Snyder.
He was forced to roll over on the team nickname and he’s vulnerable because of the organizational misconduct allegations.
The Democrats will not stop harassing him.
Snyder cannot lose control of the team unless he’s essentially voted out by the other owners.
Thus far, that seems unlikely, but there’s no telling what other owners might do if the pressure campaign gets too hot.
If Snyder falls, it would be a terrible development for the sports world.
Political bad actors would have the power to take a franchise away from an owner.
