Athlete activism is both growing and diversifying, just in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics and the U.S. election, writes The Washington Post's Jerry Brewer. It's all the more reason for this sports columnist to stray from his lane and stick to the promotion of athlete/coach activism. "Could there be many displays that paint the ugly picture of divisiveness in America?" Brewer asks.



Business dilemma: Faced with the choice, do you continue to soak up government subsidies to fund 97% of what your operation, or do you forswear the pork and concentrate on the 3% (really, just 3% you swear!) If you’re America’s largest abortion mill, you go with the latter. The Trump administration is forcing the professional baby killers at Planned Parenthood to make that choice, decreeing that healthcare providers receiving government funds via Title X may not use the money to promote or provide abortions in any way, shape or form.



Well, it’s been a month, but FX’s Snowfall is back to give us another pointed racial jab all the way from the 1980s. This time, it’s all of America that comes off as racist, not just cops. At least we can finally spare with the niceties.



Brent Suter is a relief pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers who isn't looking to Mariano Rivera or Lee Smith, two relievers who were recently inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame, for his inspiration. His role model is Al Gore, and he's trying to save the planet. Suter's worldly mission got a big boost Tuesday from The Washington Post's Dave Shelnin, whose story details Suter's efforts to save the world.



Score one for the queer flightless aquatic bird community, and for the gang at The New York Times!

 


Hollywood movie database IMDb.com has become the latest casualty in the trans war on reality, having been bullied by the LGBTQ community into refraining from posting trans people’s birth names on their site without “consent.” Apparently publishing trans movie industry workers’ original names is just another arrow in the quiver of patriarchal oppression.



AMC’s second season of The Terror, titled The Terror: Infamy, follows a supernatural entity stalking a community within Japanese internment camps during World War II. The “terror” therefore refers to both the evil spirit wreaking havoc on people as well as the evils of war, prejudice, and government imprisonment that actually existed during the time. Rest assured that even if the show doesn’t use that history to make “timely” comparisons to today’s border crisis, the liberal critics will.



Former World Series champion and six-time baseball all-star Curt Schilling's talk of running for Congress is drawing "combustible" reactions from hostile media, along with strong support from his pal, President Donald Trump. The former major league pitcher especially incited the rancor of The Washington Post and USA Today.



At this writing, the Chinese communist regime looks ready to crack down on protesters in Hong Kong. It remains to be seen whether the standoff ends in a Tiananmen Square-style bloodbath, but the demonstrations pose a direct challenge to the Chinese government, and Beijing will respond forcefully -- its what authoritarian regimes do.



Finally, a lefty who doesn’t blame guns for shootings. No, Indian American activist and former Democratic congressional candidate for Colorado Saira Rao knows what’s really going on: “whiteness — ALL WHITENESS — is killing us.” Rao shared her conclusion in an August 12 tweet. The mass shootings by white males in Dayton and El Paso -- combined with her tolerant, sunny liberalism -- convinced the former candidate that America needs a campaign for “ending whiteness.”



Turns out, some lefties do lose their jobs over blackface incidents. Sure, they’re not politicians -- the media/Democrats don’t give up power that easily. But it’s still kind of fun to see cracks in the not-as-I-do hypocrisy that protects liberals from having to live by their own ever-changing rules.



A new survey of Native American opinions on the Washington Redskins' nickname once again demonstrates underwhelming opposition to the moniker and just how out of touch the so-called "mainstream media" really is. The new survey duplicates the Washington Post's 2016 poll finding that 90 percent of Natives are not offended by the Redskins' nickname ― much to the disappointment of writers at the Post. Like Theresa Vargas, who insists the name is a dictionary-defined slur, no matter how many people accept the word.
