Aside from not providing the real help that most retired players need, it seems that the NFLPA has also been spending your union dollars to promote political agendas, including donations to organizations such as the Center for Community Change Action among many others. Why is this particularly interesting? Well, it turns out the PA donated $5,000 of YOUR money to this left-wing organization funded by none other than billionaire George Soros. Why even donate to this organization when it’s already well-funded by one of the richest men on earth?
It may interest retired players to find out that some of your union dollars have been donated to many political groups with leftist agendas. Most of you know that Soros funds many “activist” groups that continue to stir the political pot globally. A pure sociopath if we ever saw one. And as we’ve started to discuss, there’s no doubt that sociopaths are drawn to the game of football, from top to bottom. With 32+ billionaires owning NFL teams, how many of them do you suppose are likely sociopaths? And among the teams, how many of the coaches and players are likely sociopaths (and I’m not talking about sociopathic behavior that can often accompany brain injuries and concussions)? After all, where else can you get paid big bucks to beat the crap out of others publicly and have huge crowds of fans to cheer you on? Food for thought.
But back to the point of cooperating with Soros; does anyone not know how much he has stoked the flames before, during and after our election? And now your union is donating YOUR money to these types of organizations before helping players with their needs and benefits? Seems like more of this has been going on since DeMaurice Smith took over your union.
When you watch all the protests still going on across the fields, you start to wonder if there’s been an agenda all along since Kaepernick first took a knee.
Without trying to get too much deeper into politics and left- right-wing stuff, the conservative watchdog group 2ndVote did post a reasonably objective and comprehensive analysis of the PA’s recent donations.
All politics aside, why is this union leadership donating your money to promote political agendas?
NFL Players’ Union Teams up with Soros, Planned Parenthood to Support Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’
October 4, 2017
“A prominent anti-Trump ‘resistance’ organization” and several other leftist groups receive direct donations from the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA).
2ndVote has found the NFLPA provides financial support to the Center for Community Change Action, which according to the Washington Free Beacon, “has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections.” 2ndVote’s research team found the NFL Players Association is identified as an organization that donates in support of the center’s work in the latest available annual report.
The NFLPA is an AFL-CIO affiliated labor union that represents all NFL players and has defended those participating in the controversial national anthem protests in recent weeks. 2ndVote has also found dozens of major corporations such as Pepsi, Verizon, and USAA sponsor the NFLPA.
