The NFL has made it clear that they will not separate sports and politics. Now, many Americans are turning their backs on their once beloved football. Republican Representative Mo Brooks has come forward to announce that he has an idea that will change the way the NFL protesters think. He is proposing that we separate all Federal funding from the NFL.
The Alabama representative has explained that he is sick and tired of hearing about the self-entitled athletes in the NFL blatantly disrespecting the American flag and our entire country. They are literally playing a game to collect a publicly supported paycheck. They had better learn to stand up for the National Anthem. His solution to the issue is to make sure the United States government no longer funds the NFL through taxpayers’ money. If they can’t stand up and honor the men and women who have died for our country, then they don’t deserve our money. It seems that the only way to get through to these athletes is by hitting them where it hurts the most, their wallets.
“I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL,” Brooks told Breitbart News following the Conversations with Conservatives event at the Capitol. “That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and non-military — to the extent we do any.”
How hard is it really for these guys who cry “oppression” and “racism” in America when they are living in multimillion-dollar estates, driving the nicest vehicles, and giving their families lives most Americans will never even be able to dream about? It’s about time these NFL players show some respect to the country that gave them such wonderful opportunities and the men and women who fought for their freedom. If taking their funding away is the only way to get them to listen, then I’m all for it.
