On Friday, far-left comedian Amy Schumer announced that the reason no one would be seeing her in Super Bowl ads next year was that she was boycotting on behalf of mediocre quarterback Colin Kaepernick. During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s liberal anchors celebrated Schumer’s decision and were interested in seeing if her “peer pressure” would cause a larger “celebrity boycott” of commercials and the halftime show.
Is Paul McCartney available to once again bail out the troubled Super Bowl halftime program? The NFL may want to think about bringing in the former Beatles legend because the scourge of social justice activism is wreaking havoc with the big game's big entertainment event. Now Rihanna is reportedly passing up an opportunity to perform at halftime of the 2019 Super Bowl because she's upset that Colin Kaepernick is not part of an NFL team.
In 2010, a poll concluded that the Women's NBA is the most far-left sports organization in the land. With a mid-term election fast approaching all indications are that the league remains largely in support of leftist causes. The 2018 "Woke" NBA season recently ended and while many of these players take their games overseas in the league's offseason, others are staying put in hopes of rocking the vote.
Well, can’t say we didn’t see this coming. After a season filled with anti-conservative politics in almost every episode, the season finale of HBO’s dramedy Ballers Sunday night, “There’s No Place Like Home, Baby,” went out with a liberal bang. This time, the infamous Mr. Liberal T-Shirt character TTD (Carl McDowell) wore a “Make My President Black Again” hat, Sarah Huckabee was called a liar, as was President Trump, who was also called a “moron” who “bullshitted his way into the Oval Office by doing nothing more than lying and doubling down.”
Media Research Center (MRC) Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor issued the following statement in response to a new Media Research Center/McLaughlin & Associates poll, gauging public opinion about politics in sports and entertainment media.
More bad news for the NFL. According to Variety, viewership of the first three weeks of the 2018 season “are down an average 2% in total viewers from where they were at the same point in 2017.” Of course, ratings in the same period of 2017 nosedived 8%-10%.
HBO’s Ballers continued their political, race-baiting and pro-Kaepernick storylines Sunday night, with fictional L.A. Rams General Manager Charles (Omar Benson Miller) saying of fans who are angry over the National Anthem kneeler protests, “Fuck ‘em,” and equating such protests with the fight for equal rights for blacks in the ‘60s.
HBOhhh no they didn’t! Unfortunately, yes, they did. Again. HBO’s hit dramedy Ballers can’t seem to stop with the race wars and heavily leftist storylines, it seems. Only this time, they really upped the ante, saying "Fuck Trump," calling President Trump a “racist-ass bitch,” and praising controversial Colin Kaepernick for “leading a movement” which should be respected.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO host Bill Maher not only complained about what he called "patriotic bulls***" at national sporting events, but he also lauded former Secretary of State John Kerry as someone who "told the truth" about the Vietnam War, and gave him a forum to take credit for the program that fights AIDS in Africa without noting that it was President George W. Bush who pushed for its creation.
And you thought you just believed Colin’ Kaepernick’s kneeling anthem protest was out of place or in bad taste during the pre-kickoff moment reserved for patriotism. Silly white people, didn’t you know disagreeing with the protests makes you a practitioner or one of America’s oldest and most racist traditions? Welcome to the “slave patrol.”
The New York Times picked sides in a sporting event -- a conflict between top women’s tennis player Serena Williams and officiating umpire Carlos Ramos, who she tangled with during an enduring emotional on-court meltdown during her losing match against Naomi Osaka. Ramos eventually penalized Williams a full game in the controversial finals of the U.S. Open. The Times called out an umpire ruling against one female player in her match against another female player as...sexism?
On CNN's New Day Saturday, right-leaning CNN contributor Ben Ferguson again demonstrated why he is one of the few bright spots on the otherwise liberal news network as he explained to apparently befuddled host Christi Paul why it is that many Americans are offended by the NFL kneeling campaign inspired by ex-player Colin Kaepernick.
