The big lie about the media tells about the NFL anthem protests is that they represent American values.
That is the very definition of fake news.
The media’s fib was exposed when one brand new poll sent anti-American NFL players running for cover.
Donald Trump won the election in part because Americans were sick of political correctness.
Liberals had divided up Americans into hyphenated groups and fought to ban words that “triggered” members of so called marginalized groups.
Americas have had enough.
And no organization is feeling the backlash harder than the NFL.
A Fox News poll found 46 percent of Americans thought businesses and politicians made decisions based on political correctness.
That same poll found the NFL with a record low approval rating.
Also, 46 percent of respondents found that business leaders and politicians often make bad decisions based on political correctness. Another 34 percent allowed that it occurs “sometimes” while only 15 percent said it “hardly ever” happens.
The poll was particularly worrisome for the National Football League which got sacked by a low favorability rating.
The poll, taken a few weeks after the NFL’s recent announcement of new rules to curb player protests during the playing of the national anthem, found that pro football is still losing ground with Americans. Only 42 percent viewed the league favorably. That is down from the 46 percent seen in last year’s poll and way down from the 64 percent result found in 2013.
The NFL tried to be politically correct and allowed anti-American players to display how much they hate this country and its military.
While it may have appeased left-wing sports journalists, real Americans have turned their backs.
