Mo Brooks on NFL Protest Controversy: Terminate Any Federal Support of Professional Football

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said on Tuesday that the federal government should not financially support the NFL because of players’ disrespectful “take a knee” protests during the national anthem.

“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.”

“The same thing with any other professional sport that insults our country and our flag and our anthem as the NFL has done,” said Brooks, who is a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

CNN Money reported in 2015 the NFL teams get “billions in subsidies from U.S. taxpayers.”

And take away that BS tax status as a "Non-Profit".

There should never be any federal dollars involved in any professional sports.

Do you hear us now Rodger? That was a bone headed move to double down like you did. Now the real Americans will let you know how we feel about that.
