The National Football League is going to be even more “woke” following the hiring of Barack Obama’s communications director to coordinate the league’s messaging efforts.
Katie Hill will join the NFL as the Senior Vice President of Communications and will be “responsible for leading the NFL’s day-to-day communications operation,” according to an official press release put out by the organization.
Prior to her hiring, Hill served as Obama’s Communications Director after the end of his second White House term and also worked as one of the administration’s top flacks from 2014 to 2017 and held the position of Assistant Press Secretary.
According to the NFL: “Hill will be responsible for leading the NFL’s day-to-day communications operation, aligning the League’s communications strategy with its priorities. She will work closely with the leadership team across departments to ensure consistency of messaging and strategy, and to elevate success stories.” stated the press release, “In addition, she will lead efforts in identifying reputational issues for the League and across the 32 clubs and developing strategies to mitigate their impact.”
Jeff Miller, who is the league’s Executive Vice President of Communications, Public Affairs and Policy hailed Hill’s hiring; “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome someone of Katie’s talent to the NFL,” He added, “Her communications vision, world-class strategic instincts, and deep understanding of today’s dynamic media, digital and cultural landscape make her an excellent fit for the League and our goals.”

The announcement is a sign that there will be no turning back from the league’s embrace of the toxic and divisive Black Lives Matter agenda that was adopted following the death of George Floyd and the violent riots that received corporate sponsorship despite their destructiveness.
Last month, the NFL once again emphasized its devotion to the BLM cause following a Minneapolis jury’s lightning-fast conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin for murder in Floyd’s death when it released a statement saying that “Today’s outcome in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis does not undo the loss of life. Mr. George Floryd should be here with us today.”
The statement also established the league as one of the nation’s most prominent evangelists when it comes to preaching the gospel of “woke” to which it is committed; “Importantly, even as we identify reasons for hope, we must continue to help move our society toward a more equal and just tomorrow,” the league said, “We are proud to partner with NFL players and clubs and remain committed to do the important work needed to make positive change in our society.”
Now they have brought Obama’s communications director onto the team to lead the messaging as the idea that half of the league’s fans may be racists has firmly taken hold at NFL headquarters.
Following Floyd’s unfortunate death, the NFL rushed to support the mob by condemning the “systematic oppression of black people” and apologizing to the national anthem kneelers in a recorded statement by Commissioner Roger Goodell.
We, the NFL, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black People. We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter. #InspireChange pic.twitter.com/ENWQP8A0sv

In addition to playing two national anthems before the opening week’s games with one for black people and one for whites, the NFL allowed BLM propaganda to be painted in end zones and worn on player’s helmets.
Even though the NFL’s alliance with radical leftist organizations and their ideology has led to tanking ratings and the permanent alienation of millions of previously loyal fans the league has embarked on a mission that includes other professional sports leagues, the entertainment industry, and nearly all major corporations who are vital parts of the public-private partnership promoted by the Biden regime.
The hiring of Hill will firmly put Obama’s imprint on a league that has been completely drained of its previous patriotism under Goodell’s tenure.
