Democrat demands that youth football be taken off the air

Democrat Girlie-Man Fascism
Fascist bully Dick Durbin says football “glorifies a
culture of violent competitiveness.”

Neo-Fascist Big Brother bully Democrat Senator Dick Durbin is attacking the 1st Amendment rights of the Esquire Network to broadcast “Friday Night Tykes,” a program which follows Texas youth football teams.

Durbin, in a letter sent Thursday, asked the network’s president to pull the show, writing that it “sends the opposite message and exploits these children for purely entertainment purposes.”

“I call on you to immediately end this shameful, dangerous display on your network” the Illinois Democrat wrote. “With all we know about the risks of concussions in youth sports today, it is unconscionable to televise and celebrate the conduct of a league that directly endangers the health of children.”

The program draws its name from the popular television series, “Friday Night Lights,” which followed high school football players in a small Texas town. “Friday Night Tykes” focuses on 8- to 9-year-old players on youth football teams in Texas.

Durbin said concussions in youth sports are a “growing problem” and added the show “glorifies a culture of violent competitiveness.”
