Just in from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
The NFL season hasn’t started, but the league is doing its best to make sure they still have fans when it does! After a year-long controversy that cost him fans, advertisers, and ratings, Commissioner Roger Goodell finally decided to step in and stop the bleeding.
A new anthem policy will take effect when the NFL kicks off in September — and not a moment too soon. Patriotism, the kind quarterback Colin Kaepernick flouted when he took a knee during the Star Spangled Banner, is no longer optional.
Trump got the League’s attention alright. Millions of fans changed channels, ended their subscriptions, or stopped buying tickets altogether. At games, boos rained down where cheers once were. And suddenly, the biggest storyline on NFL Sunday had nothing to do with the scores.
Whether the NFL has learned its lesson about wading into the culture wars remains to be seen. What it has learned is not to tangle with proud Americans — and the man working to make their country great again, Donald Trump.
