Shocking: NFL Owners Cave in to Player Protests, Will Pay Millions to George Soros-backed Social Justice Groups

Craig HueySocial Issues1 Comment

Under an agreement with the Players Coalition, the NFL owners plan to funnel $89 million over 7 years to the following causes:

  • The Dream Corps, a leftist advocacy group led by former Obama advisor Van Jones
  • The United Negro College Fund
  • The Players Coalition, which has been advised by Soros-funded groups such as the Campaign for Fair Sentencing of Youth and the Center for American Progress

The Center for American Progress is a leader of the anti-Trump “resistance” movement.

The Dream Corps is also linked to George Soros, and has called for saving the Clean Power Plan, cutting the prison population by half, and providing “sanctuary for all.”

The $89 million will be distributed to both local and national efforts.

On the national side, the owners will pay $73 million over 7 years as follows:

  • 25% to the United Negro College Fund
  • 25% to the Dream Corps
  • 50% to the Players Coalition, which has filed for 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status as a fiscally sponsored project of the Hopewell Fund

The Hopewell Fund is managed by Arabella Advisors which is a major player in the environmental movement.

The Dream Corps has four major projects:

  • YesWeCode, which trains disadvantaged young people as computer programmers
  • Cut50, which calls for reducing the U.S. prison population by 50%
  • Green for All, an environmental group founded by Van Jones in 2007 along with Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection
  • LoveArmy, a resistance group supporting net neutrality and opposing the Dakota Access pipeline and the Keystone XL pipeline

About 40 players led by Malcolm Jenkins, a Philadelphia Eagles safety, were involved in the Players Coalition. That’s a small percentage of the 1696 players on the 32 NFL club rosters.

The NFL Players Association, which is the players’ union, was not involved in the talks.

Some players have criticized the proposed agreement as inadequate. Others have accused the NFL of planning to finance the deal by diverting funds from Salute to Service and Breast Cancer Awareness, its current charitable efforts.

A formal agreement has not yet been finalized. According to ESPN, the agreement will need to be approved by the owners collectively at the annual league meeting in March.

What all of this means is that if you purchase a ticket for an NFL football game at any time during the next 7 years, you will be financially supporting George Soros-backed leftist political advocacy groups.
