Liberal vultures are circling the NFL.
The league made itself a political target by encouraging the anti-American anthem protests.
Now an NFL coach who offended Nancy Pelosi got one shocking punishment.
The January 6th House Select Committee is in the middle of its television spectacle.
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are attempting to fear-monger about the Capitol Hill riot in order to distract from their failures.
Pelosi even broke tradition and denied the GOP to select its own members for the committee.
Instead, she unilaterally picked Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, two Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump.
And Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was not a fan of the proceedings.
Del Rio tweeted, “Would love to understand ‘the whole story’ about why the summer of riots, looting, burning and the destruction of personal property is never discussed but this is ???#CommonSense.”
When reporters asked him about it, Del Rio doubled down and responded:
Commanders Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio:
"I can look at images on the TV, people's livelihoods are being destroyed, businesses are being burned down, no problem. And then we have a dust up at the Capitol, nothing burned down, and we're going to make that a major deal." pic.twitter.com/99mF3uxUTD

But it didn’t take long for the heat to be turned up against Del Rio.
Head coach Ron Rivera fined Del Rio $100,000 and released a statement condemning his sentiments.
Rivera wrote in part, “As we saw last night in the hearings, what happened on the Capitol on January 6, 2021 was an act of domestic terrorism…A group of citizens attempted to overturn the results of a free and fair election, and, as a result lives were lost and the Capitol building was damaged…I want to make it clear that our organization will not tolerate any equivalency between those who demanded justice in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the actions of those on January 6 who sought to topple our government.”

Del Rio has since deleted his Twitter account.
However, star players on the defense still seem to support Del Rio.
ESPN reported that “one person close to defensive end Chase Young said of Del Rio, ‘That’s his guy.’”
Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen said, “I don’t care about his opinion as long as he shows up every day and works hard. That’s what I want from my defensive coordinator.”
Questioning the regime in any way in any profession means that censorship and punishment could be right around the corner.
