Jewish Group Urges Major League Sports to Stop Backing of BLM Due to Support for Hamas

Published on

Major league professional sports are a big deal in America. Sports rivalries are treated like family ties. New York and Boston basketball and baseball fans fight. Cardinals fans in St. Louis will do the same thing to their Cubs-loving friend, as though it were a warning. Fans will stick by their teams no matter what. Sports are also a big business. Teams and sponsors exchange millions of dollars for the causes that these leagues support. The support for one of these causes could be sacrificed to fund another. Clay Travis, a conservative radio host, tweeted about the possible dilemma facing professional sports.

Warning: This tweet contains graphic images.

The Coalition for Jewish Values, a large rabbinic organization that promotes public policy, has asked professional sports leagues, such as the National Football League, National Basketball Association, and Major League Baseball, to stop supporting Black Lives Matter after several of its affiliated organizations expressed support for Hamas’ attack on Israel in October.

CJV released a press statement in which it described BLM “as a movement that advocates murdering Jews.” CJV Vice President Dov Fischer stated,

“The collective which has ascribed the term ‘Black Lives Matter,’ is one the most antisemitic groups that make Jews feel unsafe. They join terrorists in their quest for global jihad, not to advance civil rights. It is inexcusable that American companies, particularly sports teams that depend on fans of all races and backgrounds to support them, would do so.

BLM Chicago, after the attack in which 1,400 Israelis were killed, tweeted an image of paragliders similar to those seen in Israel at the time. The tweet was deleted later, and BLM Global Network Foundation (the primary BLM organization) did not condemn it, but claimed that they had no connection with the Chicago BLM group.

BLM is known for making at least antisemitic remarks. In a CJV 2015 video, BLM cofounder Patrice Cullors says, “If you don’t stand up boldly and courageously to stop the imperialist project known as Israel, then we are doomed.” In the video, it is claimed that American professional sports leagues continue to support BLM by having players and coaches kneel during the National Anthem before games and by giving them millions of dollars in T-shirts. Some of these t-shirts were worn by NBA stars. New York, Dallas, and Chicago are some of the cities where teams publicly supported BLM.

Major league sports are big business. The million-dollar question is: Will they stop supporting BLM after the horrific attacks on Israel, which, at least initially one BLM chapter appeared to support? We’ve all seen the consequences of those who don’t “properly support” woke organizations such as BLM. On the other hand, we’ve seen what happens to those who don’t “properly” support woke organizations like BLM. The major leagues want to satisfy all their fans. But if they insist on dabbling with politics, then not everyone will be happy. This means that revenue will be lost, regardless of which side is involved.

Will the Israel-Hamas conflict help major league sports choose which fans to please? A recent Quinnipiac University survey asked voters to choose their sympathies based on Middle East knowledge. About 61 percent said Israel. The BLM was a major turnoff for many sports fans. Kneeling in the NFL lowered ratings. Many MLB teams received negative feedback after having “Pride Nights.”

Please read this before making any decisions. Before Game 3 of the American League Divisional playoff series, the Texas Rangers observed a moment’s silence in memory of those who died in Israel. Now they are headed for the World Series.
