The National Football League has been sliding ever more leftward over the last few years. And now it seems the organization has decided 2016 is the perfect time to dive headfirst into the insanity, embracing the racially divisive leftist narrative being pushed about police officers.
The Dallas Cowboys had planned to honor slain police officers with a special decal on their helmets this season, but the NFL said no way.
According to Truth Revolt, The NFL has refused to allow the Dallas Cowboys to display an “Arm in Arm” decal on their helmets during the preseason games. The decal is meant to show support for law enforcement and honor slain police officers.
The football league already refused to allow the team to display the decal in regular season, but on Wednesday officials banned the decal for the preseason games as well.
The Cowboys unveiled the decal during a ceremony with Dallas city and police officials on the first day of training camp as a sign of unity and solidarity following the tragic shootings of five police officers last month.
The NFL regularly displays support for various causes. Every October, for example, the NFL teams and cheerleaders wear pink to raise awareness of breast cancer. So why not show support for law enforcement?
“Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams,” Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said after practice Wednesday. “We respect their decision.”
The police responded to the NFL’s decision with a statement that read:
We appreciate the support of the Cowboys organization and its players. Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future.
How sad is it that even sports are not a “safe space” from the ridiculousness of the progressive agenda? It seems for the average American, there’s simply no reprieve from the indoctrination happening everywhere, as liberals continue their full frontal assault on the values that make this nation great.
Police officers put their lives on the line each and every day to protect our communities, and when bad people attack them for doing their job, it’s only right to stand by their side.
Sadly, it seems the NFL is afraid to stand up alongside our police officers — one can only assume out of fear of potential backlash from the likes of Black Lives Matter — not unlike Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton declining to even seek the endorsement of police officers, while she continues to pursue one from Black Lives Matter.
It’s a sad day indeed when a terrorist organization in essence silences a positive show of support for the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep us ALL safe.
