“American Sniper” Wife Issues Challenge To The NFL As Letter Goes VIRAL

"You lost me," said this snipers widow to the N.F.L.

"You lost me," said this snipers widow to the N.F.L.

“You lost me,” said this snipers widow to the N.F.L.

That stomping sound heard in the distance is nothing to be alarmed about. It is simply former N.F.L. fans and supporters making a mad stampede for the doors, that is all. Sure, the liberals had their day last Sunday, President Trump was heavily mocked, our racial division was made worse, but now the other side, like a rubber band snapping back, is up to bat.

Taya Kyle, the widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle wrote an open letter to the N.F.L., according to the Daily Caller. In it, she tells the league that they have lost her patronage and support over the kneeling choice that many players and others have made. She even issues a special challenge for the kneelers at the end. It seems that, as said before, free speech works both ways and many of us vote with our pocketbooks.

She reminds the now PC league that the reason that Americans loved the game so much was that it at least seemed to stand for “celebrating each other based on skills, talent and a joint vision without regard to color and religion” and now only cares to “focus on division and anger” instead.

This kneeling original has likely sealed the fate for the popularity of his chosen sport.

Your desire to focus on division and anger has shattered what many people loved most about the sport,” writes Kyle.

She also laments that “Football was really a metaphor for our ideal world — different backgrounds, talents, political beliefs and histories as one big team with one big goal — to do well, to win, TOGETHER,” something that is missing now.

She is correct, too. As the Conservative Daily Post observed, now it is about black players sacking a white quarterback and giving him the “black power” racist salute. That is similar to a white player giving the Hitler salute after a play on a Jewish athlete, which would ALSO be disgusting.

Highlighting that many people use sports to escape the real world and have some fun, she writes also that “Simplicity in a crazy world was pretty awesome. You, dear NFL, have taken that. You have lost me here.”

Kyle is hardly anti-First Amendment, for she also mentions that if this was done on their own time, it would not be anything but garden variety disrespect.

This is going to something that league feels.

The brave widow runs the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, a wonderful effort that “works to strengthen the relationships of military and first-responder families,” the Caller also tells us.

What can these kneelers accomplish on their own time when the N.F.L. and the fans are not footing the bill to watch? “If I can do it while I raise two kids as their only parent and work through the greatest pain of my life, let’s see if they can do it for the issues they say they care so much about,” she challenges.

Looks like this sniper’s widow just hit the bullseye.
