Robert Kraft Voices Concerns Over Rising Hate and Division in America

Robert Kraft, who has owned the New England Patriots since 1994 and is regarded as a prominent figure in sports ownership across North America, has achieved remarkable success with six Super Bowl victories, ten appearances, and a flourishing business, positioning him among the wealthiest individuals in the United States.

However, despite his wealth and accomplishments, Kraft expresses dissatisfaction with the current state of the country. In an interview with USA TODAY Sports, the Massachusetts native voiced his concern, stating, “I don’t recognize parts of this nation. I don’t like where we’re headed. I’m worried about our country right now.”

A significant source of Kraft’s unease stems from his Jewish heritage. Despite his efforts to combat antisemitism and promote racial unity over the years, the 82-year-old has witnessed a troubling rise in racial and religious tensions, particularly concerning instances of anti-Jewish sentiment.

Kraft highlights distressing events such as the Charlottesville rally where individuals dressed as Nazis chanted anti-Semitic slogans and the Tree of Life synagogue massacre, lamenting that such occurrences should not be taking place in America.

Drawing a parallel to the 1930s in Nazi Germany, Kraft warns against the dangerous path towards the persecution of Jews and emphasizes his commitment to preventing a repeat of history. He reportedly plans to use a commercial ad spot during Super Bowl LVIII to raise awareness about the escalating rates of antisemitism and the imperative to resist the resurgence of hatred in America.

Expressing particular concern for the relationship between younger generations, especially Black and Jewish Americans, Kraft stresses the need for reconciliation and healing. Until this relationship is restored, Kraft anticipates continued disillusionment with the evolving societal landscape, a reality that deeply troubles him.
