Social justice warrior and sports editor for The Nation, Dave Zirin is giving new meaning to "media day" at the Super Bowl. He disdains interviews of millionaire athletes and billionaire owners, preferring instead to highlight unions, fringe groups and others hoping to exploit the Super Bowl to gain attention for their pet social justice causes.
Por alguna razón la revista de extrema izquierda The Nation se dio a la tarea de entrevistar al artista de Univision Music, René Pérez Joglar, mejor conocido como Residente. La entrevista, una madeja de incoherencias, disparates, y medias verdades, transcurrió como es de esperarse.
For some reason far-left magazine The Nation, as do other lefty outlets from time to time, saw fit to interview Univision recording artist Residente. The interview, an incoherent slew of hot takes, went as expected.
The Nation's far Left sports editor and Donald Trump hater supreme Dave Zirin pitted NBA players and coaches against the president as all reflected this week on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Zirin positioned the NBA "as a site of resistance against racism and Trump."
In October, this space first wrote about a liberal, anti-Trump “OppArt” section on the left wing website TheNation.com that regularly publishes “Artistic Dispatches from the Frontlines of Resistance.” So far in 2018, the artistic Resistance has continued to be peddled on the far-left magazine’s website. The so-called art posted on January 8th drew a parallel between Kim Jong-un, Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump, depicting the leaders’ likenesses on top of three cockroaches, with each leader’s face appearing on one cockroach.
None of the NFL's communities have applied for federal disaster funding yet, but progressive lion Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation, claims the refusal to sign Colin Kaepernick to a pro football contract has brought these cities to economic ruin. He blames Kaepernick's lost season on right-wing, billionaire team owners who bank-rolled Donald Trump into the Oval Office.
Tuesday morning on MSNBC, Chris Jansing and Ayman Mohyeldin brought on The Nation’s Sports Editor Dave Zirin to argue that President Trump’s attacks on kneeling NFL players was actually a campaign of “open, ugly racism” deliberately aimed at discouraging black athletes from expressing their opinions. Last week in The Nation Zirin lambasted “Donald Trump, Fox News, and their neo-Nazi-infused right-wing echo chamber” for spending “a year frothing with rabid barbarism” to shut down black voices. Jansing and Mohyeldin promoted Zirin’s piece as both “thought-provoking” and “absolutely brilliant.”
A progressive writer whose been pushing for the collision of sports and politics for nearly a decade says President Trump focuses on black athletes as high-profile symbols of “people to hate,” and his right-wing echo chamber follows his lead.
On Friday, Fox News's Tucker Carlson interviewed Stephen F. Cohen, a contributing editor at The Nation. Cohen sharply criticized coverage at the Washington Post and the New York Times, and more generally stated that he has "never seen media malpractice" like the establishment press's year-long effort to breathe life into what he insists has been a completely ginned-up claim that Russia tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Ninety percent of Native Americans are not bothered by the nickname of the NFL's Washington franchise. Thus it's understandable that Indian high schools across the country sport nicknames like "Chiefs" and "Redskins." Those in the minority on that issue, including one of the foremost leftist rags among the media -- The Nation -- are deeply disturbed that the NFL would have the gall to schedule a game in Washington on Thanksgiving.
The Nation as a reputation for far-left commentaries and place for pro-Russian commentaries. On their website, it’s “OppArt” section presented “Artistic Dispatches from the Frontlines of Resistance.” In describing this section, the website dramatically declared: “At this dangerous moment in history, our actions will determine our very survival. As artists, we use our pens, our pencils, our brushes, and our ideas to cast a light on darkness and combat the forces that are driving us towards a precipice.”
In a 37-minute podcast oozing with red meat from the Left, The Nation's Dave Zirin actually criticized two icons of the far Left: ESPN and a union, along with the obligatory attacks on President Trump. The program also featured and an interview with a social justice warrior advocating against "toxic masculinity."
