The NFL has not been the same since Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American anthem protests.
Liberals expect the league to bend the knee to all of their whims.
Now one Hall of Fame NFL coach was slandered by the left for an insane reason.
Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy has long been a target of the left because of his outspoken Christian faith.
Dungy recently spoke at the March for Life, the biggest pro-life event in the country.
For that reason alone, leftists want Dungy pulled from his football analyst gig at NBC.
Far-left sports writer Dave Zirin of The Nation wrote, “’I’ve covered the March for Life in Washington, D.C., for years. It is a madhouse of right-wing gadflies, disinformation addicts, Qanon adherents, and, most disturbingly, class after class of teenage and tween-age children dragged there by teachers who abuse their authority in ways that would make Ron DeSantis smirk.”
Zirin is showing what leftists think about people who don’t want babies to be killed.
Meanwhile, Zirin, of course, had no problem with teachers encouraging students to walk out in order to advocate for gun control.
Zirin continued, “Dungy is held up as a deeply religious man and nearly a patron saint of the league. Dungy has used his devoutness as a cover for his anti-gay rhetoric and sharing platforms with unapologetic bigots. But what in the world is ‘religious’ about bearing false witness against teachers and children with a lie that has had real-life repercussions? Every bomb threat leveled against children’s hospitals, every physical assault, bears the fingerprints of these lies. Dungy should feel shame. Instead, he is emboldened, ready to take the stage at a rally that’s been a blunt instrument for robbing people of their rights to privacy and the rights to their own bodies.”
Dungy’s “false witness” was tweeting about a story he heard about a school that put litter boxes in the bathroom because at least one student identified as a cat.
The story turned out to be untrue and Dungy apologized, but unhinged leftists have already begun identifying as animals, toddlers, fairies, witches, and everything in between.
It’s understandable why Dungy fell for the story, especially because radical leftists demand tolerance of the most insane ideas.
Zirin also mentioned a bomb threat against a children’s hospital, but it was the left that seemed disinterested in getting to the bottom of it.
Right-wingers put up a reward for information leading to an arrest, and the investigation went nowhere, lending credence to the idea that the bomb threat was likely a hoax.
The hospital rapidly returned to business as usual.
Meanwhile, leftists couldn’t be bothered with dozens of crisis pregnancy centers and churches being firebombed in response to the Dobbs decision.
Zirin added, “If Dungy wants a show on The Daily Wire, more power to him. But his being center stage on the most watched program in the country makes NBC and the NFL complicit in his disinformation and political posturing. Like Dungy, neither NBC nor the NFL has commented about his latest eruption. But their silence speaks volumes.”
Disagreement with the left is grounds for losing your job.
