NFL players’ union teamed up with George Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups

NFL players' union teamed up with George Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups - Washington Times

Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups.

Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.

A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open Secrets said spent $1 million in 2016 to defeat Mr. Trump.

Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the “Trump tax scam.”

The NFLPA contributed $5,000 in 2014 to Jobs with Justice, another pro-union group backed by Mr. Soros, and $5,000 in 2013 to the progressive Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.... <rest at link>

Not too surprising, unfortunately.

So who gives a fat rat’s behind? There is just no where to go with the original post, hopefully it will die a peaceful death.

Maybe she thought he was saying she spends too much time on the shitter, because pandas poop up to 40 times a day.

They tend to be kind of lazy and slow moving. It would not be the ideal spirit animal for my line of work.

Pardon my French, but who gives a damn? And if the poster who started this thread does give a damn, then I hope he has the power of his convictions to stop watching football and leave the rest of us alone.
