Minnesota Vikings sponsoring ‘LGBTQ inclusion in sports’ initiative

“Get woke, go broke” is a brilliant aphorism coming from the Instapundit website, chronicler of corporate devotion to progressive causes deeply unpopular with their customer bases. The NFL, already reeling from attendance and television viewership declines in the wake of tolerating players dishonoring the flag and National Anthem on the playing field, apparently is not yet done with earning PC credits for team owners and alienating their fans.

KSTP-TV, flagship of the Hubbard Broadcasting group, reports:

The Minnesota Vikings will become the first NFL team to host a summit on LGBTQ inclusion in sports.

The Vikings announced Wednesday the summit will be held at the team’s headquarters in Eagan on June 21.  A reception will be held afterward to raise money for local and national LGBTQ organizations.

The team is working to create opportunities for people in the LGBTQ community.

“We hope that this really jump-starts the conversation,” Vikings chief operating officer Kevin Warren said.
