NFL players' union teamed up with George Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups

Tax documents show NFLPA activism goes beyond take-a-knee protests

Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups.

Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.

A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open Secrets said spent $1 million in 2016 to defeat Trump.

Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the “Trump tax scam.”

Soro's is a convicted Felon, how is he allowed into the USA? Try as a Felon to get into Canada, Israel, Ireland, any other country will not let a felon in.

It is time to use the left's tactics:
Demand that the NFL's player reflect the US population. As it is currently configured, it is racist for it to be mostly black. It shouldn't be more than 20% black and needs to include more hispanics, asians and don't forget the left's lgbtxyz freaks. Oh and since so many many teams stink, don't feed us the crap that you are there because you are high level professional athletes.
Make it a constant theme: the NFL players union is racist. Say it until it is believed by all. Because it is true.
