NFL Players Join Soros To Fund Leftist Advocacy Groups

Tyler Durden's picture

With ratings down, ticket sales and prices dropping, and now Cam Newton's route-gate, The NFL does not need any more headaches... but it has one. Even before Trump called out players for taking a knee during the national anthem, their union had been funding leftist advocacy groups along with George Soros.

In tax documents recently released by 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group, we learn that the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) made a donation of $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a George Soros funded and adamantly anti-Trump organization.

Yet, as The Washington Times details, that just scratches the surface of the NFLPA’s dealings and donations to the extreme left...

The NFLPA contributed $5,000 in 2014 to Jobs with Justice, another pro-union group backed by Mr. Soros, and $5,000 in 2013 to the progressive Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.

 

The NFLPA donations from 2013, 2014 and 2015 were made before Mr. Trump was elected.

 

Other NFLPA charitable contributions went to a mix of groups supporting veterans, medical research and youth, including the Wounded Warrior Project, the Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins, Active Minds, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.

“Clearly, ‘social activism’ by NFL players includes aligning with George Soros and other liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood in support of the left’s agenda,” said 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group.

We wonder how this additional news will affect NFL ratings/ticket sales this week - as it seems players are not 'on the same team' politically as many of their supporters.

Why doesn't Trump just have Soros indicted for sometthing?

What exactly can you charge the Devil with that he can't get out of?

The NFL is a government protected monopoly, heavily subsidized by US taxpayers.

Time for management (the American people) to have a sitdown with the NFL and outline exactly what is expected of them.

If the players union want to donate (a whopping $5K!) to political group(s) that's between them and their membership.  Just keep that political shit the hell off the field.

Just keep that political shit the hell off the field.

That is about as realistic as telling the Hollywood Libtards to keep the political shit off the movies.  Ain't gonna happen.

Need your football fix?  Lots of good games on Saturdays.  My Sundays are now for yard work and house work.  Eff the National Felons League.

Ciao, NFL.

You've done lost many of your "sunshine fans" like me.

And, no, I won't be coming back.

With the words "Soros" and "leftest", ZH has come up with some pretty serious click bait.

I went to a MLS Soccer game the other night.  Damned if the foreign national players didn't stand respectfully for the National Anthem.  Compare that to the losers in the NFL.

Who cares?  Make up a 10 page list of crimes, send him to the Hague, and in 20 years he might go to trial.  By that time he will be on his 10th artificially sustained life, so maybe that wouldn't work.  But it would take him out of circulation for a while.

Anything and everything. Just run him around a Mueller Hamster Wheel.

They should charge him with Domestic Terrorism and Conspiracy to commit Sedition. Indict David Brock, Obama, Clinton, Podesta, Clapper, Brennan, and many others as co-conspirators.

Same reason the Clinton clan is still out on the streets, they are untouchables. They will rat out all the .1% baby rape set if they touch them.

We wish, but no.  They "stand" together.

The same reason you haven't. Rational people who see the evil of the Clinton's and Soros' would rather live than die in a hail of bullets or get sent to "pound me in the ass federal prison."

SHEEPFUKKER's picture

You mean die in a hail of bullets like in LV or perhaps a FEMA camp like Puerto Rico and Houston?

Because there is no difference.  Trump = Soros = Clinton (s) = Bush (s) = McCain = Pelosi...

 

It's a circle jerk and your the receptacle.

Better turn focus toward son as pops circlets drain...

Because Trump is a bitch to the jews and Soros owns him after helping him out once.

He's, Trump, one of them and a treacherous whore. Time to stop making excuses like people did with Obama and time to call Trump out for what he is.

There is no doubt this left wing "liberalism" we rare seeing is a mental disease, and very infectious and dangerous.

 

Texas Capital Dumps Columbus Day for ‘Indigenous Peoples Day’ The Austin City Council voted Thursday to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day, a holiday that honors Native Americans, and no longer recognize Columbus Day.

The resolution proclaims that the City of Austin has a responsibility to “oppose the systematic racism” directed at indigenous people in the United States”

I agree with their goal to end racism....how about a good start by ending the racist AA policies that evaluate people by skin color instead of abilities?

Soreass just found another Sheeple group to shear.  the players shall soon see their bank accounts dropping like a rock. with little to nothing to show from it.

 

Soreass became a maybe Trillionaire by not missing chattel groups primed & fattened for shearing.

i say Trillionaire because he passed the hundreds of billions a while ago, and quite easy in that position to lever up the bets to get off the chart digits in his accounts. 

what to do when a billion dollars means no more than ten grand does to most of us?

NFL, NBA, MBL and NHL. 

That is just the pros looking for government handouts. FFS. 

Add up the NCAA crapola and other mooches and that is some serious $.

What is more American than football, invading foreign countries, bombing hospitals and schools, and young American men dying in banker wars so George Soros and his ilk can make a handsome profit?

You pay the government, the government pays the sports leagues directly, and pays the MIC, the MIC pays the television networks for propaganda commercials, and the television networks pay the sports teams.

His name was Pat Tillman.

 

Anyone can dream?

I hope Marilyn Hewson dreams about this young lady...

A girl who was burned beyond recognition by a U.S. drone and Lockheed-Martin Hellfire Missile in Afghanistan and left for dead in a trashcan before she had to undergo reconstructive surgery.   The chemicals in the missiles burn so hot they can light a tank on fire, but this is somehow different from the chemical warfare allegedly waged by our enemy...

I've turned off the NFL, and I always encourage everyone I know to do the same thing. Good luck keeping those NFL salaries sky high with your leftist politics.

what's worse than the kneeling is the black power fist in the air.  that's a direct spit on america's sovereignty and should be labeled under sedition.

Black power, alright.  ChiCongo, Liberia, Dee-troit, Gary . . . so much to be proud of.  SO. MUCH.

5 grand.

That's a lot of money.

Can the players afford that amount for a donation?

Gorgeous's picture

Yeah, it's not like the Sorosites need the money.  It's more pay for hire.

You guys should have used the picture of Kapernick wearing his Fidel Castro t-shirt in Miami before last years game while "addressing" the media.  Nothing says "How to win friends and influence people" more than wearing a t-shirt publicly in a 100 mile proximity of a place where thousands of people lost relatives, siblings, friends etc. to the murderous lunatic you are praising.  That action alone tells you exactly what a complete fucking moron the guy is.
