ALERT: Obama Issues Nasty NFL Announcement

When Kaepernick first chose not to stand for the national anthem at an NFL game last year, politics seeped into the game and haven’t left since.

It would seem Barack Obama blames President Trump for politicizing football. During a paid speech on health care, he told listeners, “Our big problem right now is politics. Can’t even get it out of football.”

While his comment about politics in football didn’t target Trump directly, it is highly suspicious considering that the comment occurred after Trump’s controversial statements over the weekend and not during the Kaepernick protests or other players protesting throughout the year.

It’s also incredibly hypocritical that he would criticize anyone for seeking to politicize football, considering he did just that throughout his presidency. Since 2013, Obama and his administration have tried to influence the Washington Redskins into changing their name out of concerns for political correctness and offending fans of the NFL.

In 2013 he sided with opponents of the Washington Redskins who considered the name of the team offensive to Native Americans. Speaking to reporters he said, “If I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they’ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizable group of people, I’d think about changing it.”

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said while fans should be considered, it’s the Redskins owner’s decision. “If one person’s offended, we have to listen. And ultimately, it is Dan [Snyder]’s decision. But it is something that I want all of us to go out and make sure we’re listening to our fans, listening to people who have a different view, and making sure that we continue to do what’s right.”

That the Obama administration also participated heavily in the lawsuits trying to force the Redskins name change by denying trademark rights. The lawsuit would prevent the Redskins from renewing their trademarks and patents under the Redskins name.

Obama’s acting assistant attorney general, Joyce R. Branda, said the DOJ sided with the prosecutors to protect the “cultural heritage” of Native Americans. “I believe strongly in the rights of all Americans to celebrate and maintain their unique cultural heritage.”

The Obama administration was seriously considering blocking the construction of a new stadium for the team because of the controversy surrounding the name. Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was informed by the interior secretary, Sally Jewell, that the Obama administration would not work with or accommodate the construction until the name was changed.

Considering Obama and his administration engaged in the political controversy surrounding the Redskins for several years, it’s hypocritical for him to comment on the politics surrounding the statement made by Trump over the weekend.

Furthermore, it’s interesting that Obama and other Democrats would push the Redskins to change their name because it offended fans, yet don’t seem to care that the current protests against the national anthem are offending fans.

While many could agree with Obama’s statement that it’s unfortunate that politics has found its way onto the field, he should also hold himself responsible for the number of years he and his administration waged political war with the Washington Redskins.

    “Good noW!”®,B”H. It’s all out of proportion. “Time to get back to playing the game. Voice your issues at election time. I agree with John Wayne the hyphen must be destroyed, along with Islam, prejudice, Muslim brotherhood, PLO, racist attacks, Obama and his idiot wife for their incendiary nature and stupidity and focus on ID politics – that’s the enemy here – ego and failure to relate to G-d’s principles – All Lives Matter (ALM), B”H. In G-d we trust.”
    I would change the petition to read “as above”.

    If obummer was SO worried about the welfare of his Native American “brothers”, why didn’t he make an executive order to financially help all his “brothers ” and “sisters” who are starving and freezing on Reservations? Total Moronic Hypocrite!

      Strongbow, Amen to your reply. So sick of the blacks thinking they are the only ones to be forgotten. The Native Americans and Jewish people were also treated badly, worse than the blacks….they just want something to complain about. They aren’t happy unless they are protesting or blaming everyone else for their problems!

    So says the cornerstone and architect of politics in sports. Hussein ought to SHUT UP and refrain from exalting himself at every turn. Hasn’t he noticed no one but himself mentions him! He has no self respect. He’s buried in so much pride. JUST GO AWAY HUSSEIN OBAMA! ISIS is lost without you!

    If these football players want to protest or free speech do it on your time not ours, If you cant stand for the countries Flag, National Anthem maybe you should just suck it up and do it on your time not ours, if that doesn’t suit you maybe you would like to move out of the country, if it wasn’t for us you would not be millionaires with all your fancy homes and care galore. So Keep it up and continue what you are doing you will pay the price for disrespecting us and our Country you can move to where you were born or go to a foreign country and play football there. You will see a ban on the NFL coming soon enjoy the ban all of you, as for Obama I wish he would get out of the lime light we have had enough of him
