The Washington Times runs a stunning headline you’d never see in the left-of-center, Hillary Clinton endorsing Arizona Republic: “NFL players’ union teamed up with Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups.”
The information it delivers provides the back story to much of the anti-American political activism that has shocked fans and turned many away from the games. SRAZ would do a disservice to the superb reporting of Valerie Richardson if we attempted to synopsize her in-depth article so we direct our readers to linked article, which includes links to tax documents.
Socialist billionaire George Soros, who disdains national sovereignty and borders, funds multiple front groups to forward his agenda which also included anti-Trump advocacy beginning prior to President Trump’s election.
Soros’ impact, in the form of heavyweight monetary contributions, has affected the National Football League. Viewership is down appreciably since the NFL made the decision to unify in support of disrespecting our National Anthem and flag, as players “take the knee” rather than standing in respect for the symbols of freedom. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” numbers in the first two weeks of the regular season fell 7% in viewership compared to last year. ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” is down 5%; and the averages of Sunday afternoon games on Fox and CBS are down 11% and 19% respectively, according to Nielsen data. CBS hasn’t yet had a 4:25 p.m. national game this season, which usually accounts for the principal viewership of the weekend.
Brian Hughes, a senior vice president at Magna, which monitors audience trends, would like us to believe Hurricane Irma impacted viewership during the NFL’s first week.
If blaming hurricanes doesn’t work for you, Hughes provides another excuse: blaming fan inability to concentrate. It’s our mindlessness, rather than the grossly overpaid players offensive attitude that is responsible for the steep declines. “In general people’s attention spans have changed,” Hughes said. “There’s evidence that people are intensely interested in fewer things and generally interested in more things, and I think that’s a function of deluge of content that we are finding ourselves in nowadays.”
We’re not as incapable of walking and chewing gum at the same time as Hughes would presume. In fact we were able to locate DiscoverTheNetwork.Org’s Guide to the Political Left detailing George Soros Connections, listing his myriad front groups, established to impose his Socialist agenda and disrupt order in the United States.
In the event you missed it, SRAZ detailed the John McCain and Hillary Clinton connection in a Feb. 2016 post titled, “By George! McCain & Hillary have a lot in common.” Soros also funneled money to Democrat Paul Penzone who defeated popular 6-term Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Politico, in a concerning report revealed that Soros is quietly working behind the scenes to fund a massive overhaul the U.S. Justice system.
Keep your eye on the ball, folks. Our future depends on it.
