Americans turn their wallets into weapons against SJW activism

Written by  Leslie Eastman

FISCAL JUSTICE: Experts brace for economic impact of NFL drama while Madonna’s latest album tanks.

Professor Jacobson is not the only one who is “tuning out” sports and entertainment venues because of social justice warrior activism.

It turns out millions of American are joining him. Sunday Night Footballratings plummeted the night of the #TakeAKnee protests.

In metered market numbers, the primetime matchup that saw the Washington Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 27-10 snared an 11.6/20, the worst SNF has performed this season so far. It’s an 8% dip from the early numbers of last week’s game, Atlanta’s 34-23 win over Green Bay. Amid cheers and boos from fans at FedEx Field in Maryland last night, the third week of the SNF season declined 10% from early numbers of the comparable game of last year on September 25, 2016.

Sunday’s SNF peaked with a 12.r5/20 during the second quarter from 9-9:30 PM ET. Still, NFL ratings are down double-digits this season so far after taking a similar tackle-for-loss last year. Add to that, Sunday’s game was the worst a Week 3 SNF has done in 11-years.

I have seen several lists of NFL sponsors make the rounds on social media, as citizens prepare responding to the social justice drama that has become part of recent football culture.

Here's another example of right-wing intellectualism:

"Only an absolute idiot who doesn't understand business would have posted what you did. Thank you for showing us all what a pathetic job the idiots who raised you did."

Personally, I think it's the epitome of ignorance to make some dumba** comment about an individual's parents. On the other hand, it shows just how imperfectly socialized some of the far right really are.

If you can afford to own an NFL team, you really don't give a damn if a few rednecks, peckerwoods and crackers start babbling about flag-waving and singing.

I was raised in a company town, by working parents, who are both deceased. So...Mary Jane...YOU can take your inane comment, and stick it up your ignorant, right-wing a**!

I enlisted in the US Navy during the waning days of the Vietnam Conflict. I fully expected to be sitting on an aircraft carrier off the Southeast Asian coast. I didn't think twice about committing my life to the defense of this nation.

These overpaid, egotistical ass-wipes can go pitch pennies on a street corner for all I care. The can beat the hell out of each other on the gridiron, but they wouldn't have the courage to stand up for this nation. This tells me what kind of creatures they are. They aren't men, just animals. No national pride, no real courage.

If you can't stand up for the national anthem, you can all go piss up a rope.

I called and told the NFL what I thought of a POS that pretends to Urinate in the end zone!! These scum need to be sent to their street corners where they can kneel all they want!! Their number is 212 450 2000!! The official Boycott day is Nov 12th!! I personally will NEVER watch another NFL game EVER!!! I can hunt, fish and trap as well as watch College ball and Nascar!! The Libturds can support thee trash but not me and I think that the NFL should be forced topay taxes as well!!

This marks a 20% decrease in viewership from the same week in 2016. That is a start, but it isn't good enough. America as a while needs to say 'no'. ...not 20% of America, all of us who say we love our country. Not everyone is called to service in the military, or as a police officer, or as a fireman or first responder. But we are all called to sacrifice when that time comes. Well America, if you have opened your mouth and claimed to love your country, the time to step up is now.

Please everyone lets send a clear message to these NFL Owners and Players. If they can't respect Our Flag then we won't respect them and Lets all Keep our Monies in our pockets and out of theirs! I can't believe they ( Players and Owners ) think they're all above this country!
I for one will never watch or purchase another NFL product until all of the players and Owners respect the Flag Of Our Great Nation!
I think they owe this country an apology!
