"Sorry for the inconvenience, sports fans, but the days of the docile black athlete are over. This isn’t a time to stick to sports. This isn’t a time to be afraid because Kaepernick has been blackballed." These are the words of Washington Post sports writer Jerry Brewer, who believes racists are feeling empowered and whites are mistaken to think we live in a post-racial society.
On Wednesday, Kevin Durant of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, said he won't attend a celebration for the team at the White House if an invitation is extended. One of the liberal commentators on ESPN praised Durant for that decision, insisting it's not political. Another ESPN talk show co-host ripped into President Trump and says he is fed up with people complaining about sports media going political.
Racial cleansers in Boston are setting their sights on Yawkey Way, the street leading into Fenway Park. The late Thomas Yawkey, who owned the Boston Red Sox baseball team from 1933 to 1976, was apparently a racist and now his memory must be expunged and the street renamed. However, in typical hypocritical liberal fashion, Yawkey Trust money is still good for the getting.
On August 17, CNN published a story with the headline: “Here Are All The Active Hate Groups Where You Live.” Was it a concise list of Nazi groups? No. It was the SPLC “hate map” and the “917 hate groups” that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated as dangerous. The post was just SPLC’s regurgitated map and list, given without comment, context or qualification.
Season 16 of Lifetime’s fashion hit Project Runway premiered Thursday, August 17, with a focus on designing for all body types, ranging “in size from two to 22,” according to designer and the show’s judge Tim Gunn. Oh, and a "dude in a dress." Because, of course.
ESPN is eating crow -- Jim Crow -- and enduring the humiliation of its fellow race-baiting rivals, many of them crowing about its racial insensitivity. The Worldwide Leader in Sports is apologizing for a segment in a 28-hour marathon in which an auctioneer "sold" NFL players. The headshot photos of black and white players were attached to popsicle sticks, and drew criticism on social media that the auctions were too similar to the slave auctions of olden times.
There seems to be no bar to the crazy this week in the aftermath of Charlottesville. While critics are screaming at Trump’s suggestion that, after the Confederate monuments the left may go after the Founding Fathers, the fine people over at Newsweek are actually considering it. Not insane enough? Vice wants to “Blow Up Mount Rushmore.”
Ordinarily, this is a mostly fun column to point out how extremely whacky the alt-left is in America. We’ll get to that, but first, it’s important to know that the alt-left is also violent and dangerous. The media have gone berserk, angry that President Trump dared call out the left for its own violent lunatics. “I do think there's blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either and- and- and- and if you reported it accurately, you would say it,” explained the president.
In the aftermath of Charlottesville, when the term “hate group” is used, images of the KKK and neo-nazis immediately come to mind.
However, according to CNN, the real hate groups to watch out for are the conservative organizations, specifically Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Family Research Council (FRC), American Family Association and ACT for America.
Oprah’s OWN Network premiered the latest season of its mega-church drama Greenleaf, which centers around Calvary World Ministries and the Greenleaf family who runs it, on Tuesday, August 15. The show picked back up where it left off…with a newly-divorced Christian father struggling with his gay desires.
It’s no secret that Hollywood takes joy in bashing Christianity. Syfy’s new show Blood Drive, which takes place in a dystopian world destroyed by fracking, just joined the slew of liberal TV shows with anti-Christian plotlines. Wednesday’s episode “Scar Tissue,” had lead characters Arthur (Alan Ritchson) and Grace (Christina Ochoa) held captive in a town where everyone is drugged into believing they live in a Utopia. Grace discovers that the town supposedly filled with beautiful and happy individuals is actually a wasteland full of disfigured, sore-covered people due to the trickery of the Reverend. When she tries to reveal the truth to Arthur, the Reverend stops her, saying, “Beloved, ‘charm is deceitful. And beauty is vanity. But the woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.’ Proverbs 30:31.
If you can pull from the wall-to-wall coverage of President Trump’s press coverage for the third day in a row, you will find that NBC recently premiered its latest sitcom Marlon on August 26. Marlon focuses Marlon Williams (Marlon Wayans) keeping up a cordial relationship with his ex-wife Ashley (Essence Atkins) as they raise their kids together. In contrast with the racially-charged and often hostile voices in the media, the show comes off as surprisingly harmless. But even in one episode, that feeling can’t last.
