The Coalition for Jewish Values is out with a new ad Thursday calling on professional sports leagues to abandon support for Black Lives Matter (BLM).
The ad begins by featuring BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors calling on activists to “step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project that’s called Israel.”

“When BLM was founded, they didn’t hide their antisemitism,” the narrator says. “Despite this, professional sports teams ignored their bigotry and elevated BLM, providing millions of dollars in publicity, including teams in cities with vibrant Jewish communities.”
The ad shows sports logos for several sports teams, such as the Chicago Bulls, the Dallas Mavericks, the New York Yankees, the Miami Heat, and the New England Patriots.

“Now their grassroots organization in Chicago chapter praised the massacre of Jews in Israel,” the narrator continued.
The ad featured an image published by BLM Chicago celebrating the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre with a poster of a paratrooper captioned, “I stand with Palestine.” During the surprise attack on Israel, Hamas paratroopers dropped into a music festival and killed about 260 people.
They really used a picture of a paratrooper…
Hamas paratroopers flew in to a concert called “The Rave for peace” and murdered 300 kids my age who were partying.

“[BLM] have called for the end of the only Jewish country in the world,” the narrator says in the ad. “Will the NBA, MLB, and NFL stop supporting and promoting a movement that advocates the murder of Jews?”
