Professional sports are headed down a dark path.
Fans don’t want politics with their sports, but they continue to get it shoved down their throats.
Now one NFL team is in hot water after supporting one anti-police protest.
The Derek Chauvin trial is over.
The former Minneapolis officer was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter in the homicide of George Floyd.
Some members of the corporate press expressed relief and elation, while others were still angry because for them, America is still on trial.
The verdict in the Chauvin trial shows that for the Left, the “struggle” will never be over until the entire American capitalist system is dismantled.
They themselves have used this communist rhetoric.
And commercial brands are consciously or unwittingly endorsing these radical ideas.
After the announcement of the Chauvin verdict, the Las Vegas Raiders tweeted:

The statement was an obvious play on Floyd yelling “I can’t breathe” during the unsettling video of his death.
It didn’t take long for people Left, Right, and center to rip the Raiders up and down for their tone-deaf tweet.
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James chimed in to rip the Raiders; ironically, James engulfed himself in his own Twitter controversy after threatening a police officer.
This is real???? Nah man this ain’t it at all. The F^%K!!!! 🤦🏾♂️ https://t.co/f44D7OQWfo

The NFL’s favorability has fallen, and leftist politics are a big reason why.
Some players continue to kneel for the national anthem five years after Colin Kaepernick started the anti-American protest.
The canonization of Floyd has reached astounding levels.
After the Chauvin verdict, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thanked Floyd for his “sacrifice.”

Pelosi’s ghoulish words expose a deeper truth about the elites.
Floyd’s death is currency for the establishment.
They get to keep their power, claim moral legitimacy, fundraise, and expand their influence through his “sacrifice.”
It’s why Democrat politicians and the corporate press trawl for black death at the hands of white police officers; that’s their easiest path to relevance and power.
The whole enterprise is disgusting, and it’s tearing the country apart.
