Not everyone involved with the NFL is some woke lunatic.
Leftists learned that lesson the hard way.
And when an NFL legend stood with Ron DeSantis, you won’t believe what happened next.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed HB7065 into law, which will promote fatherhood in Florida by providing “resources educational and mentorship programs to help children, fathers and families in the state through the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF).”
Governor DeSantis praised the pro-family legislation as helping keep children away from drugs and crime.
“This has a severe impact on children, and often leads to dropping out of school, crime and substance abuse,” DeSantis declared.
DeSantis blasted groups like Black Lives Matter that openly state their goal is to destroy the nuclear family.
“Incredibly, there are those who diminish the importance of fatherhood and the nuclear family – we will not let that happen in our state. I am proud to say we are doing everything we can to support involved fatherhood in Florida,” DeSantis added.
Two-time Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy – who is known for his sterling reputation and off-the-field mentorship work – joined Governor DeSantis at the press conference and praised the legislation for promoting the necessary role of fatherhood in children’s lives.
“This is going to be tremendous and such a good help to fathers in Florida,” Dungy stated. “This bill is so important. I want to thank all of the men and women that have been behind this. It is going to allow groups like All Pro Dad and people like those here today to do great things for our fathers here in Florida.”
Leftists lost their minds.
They love to spout off about how sports figures must be involved in political debate.
But what leftists really mean is athletes need to advocate for left-wing political causes.
Former ESPN and MSNBC host Keith Olbermann raged on social media that Dungy was a “fascist political prop” for appearing alongside Governor DeSantis.

Unhinged leftists flying off the rails over legislation concerning a completely noncontroversial topic like promoting fatherhood shows that Ron DeSantis has joined Donald Trump as the object of irrational hatred in the minds of the Left.
