Following other major sports, the NFL has embraced social justice propaganda.
Players across the league protest the National Anthem, while they stand for the “Black National Anthem.”
NFL superstar Mike Ditka is not having any of it.
He called in to tell them what they should do if they refuse to stand for the Anthem and the flag:
“Football’s football. It’s not a complicated thing. You’re playing the game, you’re enjoying the game. You don’t like the game, get out of it,” Ditka said in an interview with Newsmax TV on Monday…
Here’s more from Ditka’s bold comments:
Ditka added: “I would tell those players go to another country and play football there. You don’t have to come out. You don’t have to come out if you go to another country. You can’t! Because the game’s only played in this country. And if you can’t respect this country, get the hell out of it.”
Famed NFL coach Mike Ditka told players who refuse to stand for our Anthem to “get the hell out” of the country.
He went on to explain that football is for playing and enjoying the game. He said it was not for protesting “one way or another.”
Ditka also called players who get paid large sums of money to play a game were “privileged” who received a “gift from God.”
It seems Ditka is echoing sentiments shared by millions of Americans. As professional athletes and leagues push more protests and social justice content, fans have been tuning out.
With the media and entertainment industries pushing more and more politics in their content, Americans are getting sick and tired of it.
They want a break from all the leftist nonsense and they look to sports for a chance to unwind.
Instead, professional leagues are joining the “woke” left to lecture Americans about why we are so racist and terrible.
Not a huge surprise ratings and interest in sports are plummeting.
Ditka is emphasizing that football should be about football. It shouldn’t be about protesting or pushing any kind of politics.
It seems the league won’t learn the lesson, until they lose all their fans.
- Mike Ditka criticized players and the NFL for pushing protests and politics.
- He said players that can’t just play the game should “get the hell out” of the country.
- This comes as most major sports push “woke” politics onto their viewers.
