The NFL went full woke.
For years Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American national anthem protest haunted the league.
Megyn Kelly called out the ugly display during the Super Bowl national anthem.
It was a Super Bowl for the ages.
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38 to 35 on a last-second field goal and where star quarterback Patrick Mahomes cemented himself as one of the all-time greats.
But the NFL went out of its way to antagonize viewers with political statements before and during the game.
An exasperated Megyn Kelly told listeners to her radio show that the NFL’s effort to force woke politics on the Super Bowl viewing audience drove her nuts.
“Can I tell you, like, it wasn’t as bad as it’s been in years past, but it was a woke Super Bowl and it was annoying,” Kelly began.
Kelly blasted the all-female pilot crew flyover as unnecessary and annoying and knocked Fox for making such a big deal over it.
“Why did we need the all-female flyover, which they — Fox I mean, even on Fox, they were showing highlights. ‘It’s an all-female flyover.’ Oh, okay. All right. Thank you for reminding me that women can be pilots. I didn’t know that,” Kelly joked.
“And then of course, we had to have the Black National Anthem in addition to the regular national anthem, which is totally divisive. There is no reason to have a Black National Anthem sung before the Super Bowl,” Kelly added.
What really ticked off Kelly was the NFL having Sheryl Lee Ralph perform the black national anthem before the actual national anthem.
Kelly said the plan to segregate the anthems based on race ran contrary to everything America was founded on.
“But there’s one national anthem. It unites us all. It’s about love of country. There’s no point in dividing us by race, going into something that is already unifying as a country,” Kelly continued.
The commercials are normally a highlight of the Super Bowl.
But Kelly said advertisers went out of their way to feature the most obnoxiously liberal celebrities in their spots.
“And then we had a parade of left-wing celebrities all over the ads from Amy Schumer to Ben Affleck, who won’t even act with a Republican. He refuses to act across anybody who’s openly Republican,” Kelly stated.
The NFL got exactly what it wanted out of the game — a shootout where both quarterbacks starred in a dramatic finish.
However, Megyn Kelly explained the NFL did its level best to alienate viewers who do not share the woke mob’s politics and ruin their enjoyment of the game.
“All I could think was like, they don’t get it right. Like the people who put together the entertainment, who put together the ads, they’re not even trying to like think about the other half of the country. They’re just pandering. They just wanna pander, pander, pander. And it’s fine. The game was great, but it is a slight irritant as you’re watching the game,” Kelly summed up.
