Federation That Banned Non-Violent Protest From Athletes Honors Champion Of Non-Violent Protest

CHICAGO - The US Soccer Federation, today, sent out a Dr. King tweet in an attempt at some poorly thought out compassionate branding not less than one year after banning athletes from non-violent protest during the national anthem.

 We honor the legacy and dream, but only in that WAY off in the distant past kind of way. Not in a way that would actually honor the legacy and dream of Dr King carried out by current people and athletes.

We honor the legacy and dream, but only in that WAY off in the distant past kind of way. Not in a way that would actually honor the legacy and dream of Dr King carried out by current people and athletes.

The Federation, which intentionally issued a written mandate against non-violent empathetic protests by athletes, seemed to attempt to wrap their own idiotic nativist sentiments in the warm and fuzzy identity of Dr. King.

US Soccer stated that they weren't against people protesting as long as they were protesting benign things that they could use for market penetration like too many W's in Wondolowski's kit.

"We don't actually want people protesting like Dr. King or marching like Dr. King or speaking out on racial injustice like Dr. King," stated Sunil Gulati, very soon to be formerly of US Soccer. "We want athletes with a good Q rating that make people think USA-USA-USA-USA. We don't actually honor his legacy, we just need the branding. Anything to make people think of us and Dr. King in the same way whether or not we LITERALLY JUST BANNED PEOPLE FROM NON-VIOLENT PROTEST AND EMPATHETIC SUPPORT."

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as US Soccer attempts to show support for the LGBTQ community by re-tweeting a Harvey Milk quote and then telling athletes not to talk about their sexuality.
