jim irsay black lives matter

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has become the latest NFL personality to sell his soul to the radical left, as he just took to Twitter to blast the concept of “all lives matter.”

Over the past few weeks and months, the NFL has been submitting to the radical left and to the Black Lives Matter movement like never before. Irsay is just the latest.

Colts Owner Jim Irsay Blasts ‘All Lives Matter’

“Of COURSE all lives matter, but the phrase ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ is about unequal treatment faced by BLACK Americans,” Irsay tweeted on Monday. “It does not say or imply that ONLY black lives matter. E.g., when we say “BEAT BREAST CANCER” it doesn’t mean we don’t care about beating leukemia.”

Other NFL Owners Support Black Lives Matter As Well

Other NFL owners have been speaking out lately as well to grovel to Black Lives Matter. In June, Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie penned an open letter on the movement, blasting America in the process. 

“We as a human race are valiantly struggling in our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in our country, we have been battling a relentless social pandemic for our entire history,” Lurie wrote.

“Systemic racism, discrimination, violence and oppression of minorities – it has been our past and it is our present. It remains who we are. We need to be honest with ourselves and own that.”

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who once took a stand against players who kneel during the national anthem, now caters to them every chance he gets. Last week, he even doubled down in his apology to Colin Kaepernick, saying that he wishes he’d done more to help the former quarterback with his anthem-kneeling protests.

“Well, the first thing I’d say is I wish we had listened earlier, Kaep, to what you were kneeling about and what you were trying to bring attention to,” Goodell said. “We had invited him in several times to have the conversation, to have the dialogue I wish we had the benefit of that. We never did. You know, we would have benefited from that. Absolutely.”

Goodell Defends Protests

Not stopping there, Goodell defended the protests themselves. 

“It is not about the flag. The message here that what our players are doing is being mischaracterized. These are not people who are unpatriotic. They’re not disloyal,” Goodell said.

“They’re not against our military. In fact, many of those guys were in the military and they’re a military family. What they were trying to do is exercise their right to bring attention to something that needs to get fixed, and that misrepresentation of who they were and what they were doing was the thing that really gnawed at me,” he added.

Of course, Goodell is wrong. Colin Kaepernick himself directly said that his anthem kneeling was about the flag: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” 

Some Players Defend Criminals, Others Defend Heroes

During the season, the NFL will allow players to ‘honor’ individuals who have been in the news recently, concerning police-involved shootings. 

Superstar and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees was seen honoring Jacob Blake, the man who was shot by police in Kenosha after police responded to a call from a woman who accused him of sexual assault

At the other end of the spectrum is Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert who will honor David Dorn, the St. Louis police captain who was murdered by George Floyd rioters earlier this year. 

Football was once an escape from the evils of the world, particularly from politics, but those days are sadly long gone.

Now, fans can’t tune into an NFL game without being lectured about social justice reforms and other liberal causes.

If this nonsense continues, NFL owners shouldn’t be surprised if ratings for their teams’ games continue to plummet.
