Brett Favre is the next target that democrats wish to cancel.
The NFL legend was recently interviewed on the Andrew Klavan Show, where he discussed “woke” politics in sports.
Favre said in no uncertain terms that he is against politics being mixed in with sports, regardless of which side it is.
Favre contends that most fans just want to enjoy sports without the extracurricular politics.
“I think both sides, for the most part, want to see it just remain about the sport, not about politics.”
“I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind.”
“I want to watch all the, you know, important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game, and I think the general fan feels the same way.”

NFL legend Brett Favre says that sports fans aren't interested in injecting politics into sports.
During a recent interview with Andrew Klaven, Favre said that politics and movements simply aren't welcome in sports for many die-hard fans.

Favre’s comments came days after Major League Baseball moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to Denver over Georgia’s new voting laws. He said he’s heard fans tell him they don’t watch sports anymore because it has gotten too political.
"There’s always been differences," he said. "There's always been issues within the world, within the country, within our states. But again, something has to unify us. And I felt like the flag, standing patriotically — because Blacks and Whites and Hispanics have fought for this country and died for this country. It’s too bad."
Favre played 20 seasons in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.
