Politics have become hopelessly tied to professional sports.
It’s only gotten worse since Colin Kaepernick started the anti-American anthem protests.
Now the NFL is supporting one group that will leave you speechless.
When former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeled for the national anthem in 2016, it opened Pandora’s box.
Radical leftists were allowed to gain a major foothold in professional sports, and the trend has not reversed.
Kaepernick was turned into a martyr by the corporate press, and he received several lucrative endorsement deals.
The NFL agreed to earmark $89 million for players’ social justice causes, and that was before the politicization escalated in the wake of George Floyd.
Money has been flowing toward activist groups, and some of them have truly bad intentions.
For example, the NFL gave money to an organization affiliated with the domestic terror group Antifa.
From The Post Millennial:
“The NFL funds groups that openly advocate for defunding the police. Through the Inspire Change program, funded by the League, the NFL backs the Vera Institute of Justice, the Oregon Justice Resource Center, and the Community Justice Exchange. Each of these support defunding or even abolishing police. Fox Business uncovered that the NFL gave $300,000 to the Oregon Justice Resource Center, which has called for police defunding as well as other social justice measures. The OJRC has ties to Antifa, with one of their prominent lawyers, Juan Chavez, representing violent Rose City Antifa member Luis Marquez. The organization also represents Cider Riot, the now-closed Portland pub that hosted Antifa events and was the site of a riot in 2019.”
Marquez is being represented by Juan Chavez of Ore Justice Resource Center, the same activist firm & attorney representing Cider Riot in the $1m suit against Joey Gibson + others. Cider Riot has hosted antifa events & was site of riot where I was attacked. https://t.co/CO4ebp1rlQ

Black Lives Matter, an organization created by self-described “trained Marxists,” raked in billions of dollars in cash worldwide over the last couple of years, and their stated goals are to dissolve the nuclear family and undermine western civilization.
These radical Left groups claim they want to defund the police and abolish prisons, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
They simply want to be in control of the police and the prisons so ideological criminals are the ones getting locked up and re-education.
For example, the Left wanted blood from the McCloskeys, a couple in the St. Louis suburbs who drew weapons on protesters who stampeded into private property.
The Left wanted Rittenhouse in prison forever for the “crime” of self defense.
The NFL is now bankrolling some of these groups, which is the consequence of sports being so highly politicized.
