A week ago, Notre Dame women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw was the toast of the woke world for her "impassioned speech on women's equality." She ranted that men are running the world, the Equal Rights Amendment hasn't been passed in the U.S. and she vowed to never hire a male assistant coach. This week the Baylor coach, Kim Mulkey, whose team beat Notre Dame for the national championship, is getting denounced by the New York Daily News for straying from that "femi-nazi mold."
This week, “journalist, activist and humanitarian” Shaun King will give a keynote speech at the annual Innocence Network conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of the event, whose attendees work to prevent and undo wrongful convictions, is “The Presumption of Innocence.” I've covered many flabbergasting things over the course of 25 years as a columnist, author, blogger and documentary host, but this one takes the cake.
Ever since ESPN awarded Bruce for being confused enough to become Caitlyn, radical LGBTQ members and their media friends have moved to squash criticism that praising gender reassignment is insane. Of course, just like the gay agenda before it, trans activists started with demands that they not have to endure “hate,” but it’s quickly become a demand that society celebrates their delusion.
The self-appointed "Justice Journalist" of the New York Daily News' sports staff, Chuck Modiano, went ballistic about white privilege in the NFL. While mentioning the white race 29 times in less than flattering terms, he claims the so-called black-balling of Colin Kaepernick is due to economic racism, and says the majority of NFL owners are incompetent Trumpian clones who are selling whiteness to a white fan base.
It used to be that journalists didn’t need fire safety seminars to know they could get burned publishing stories that lacked facts or context. But when the original, deceptively edited video of Nathan Phillips and the Covington kids emerged, the press swaddled itself in oily rags, grabbed a Zippo and went full “Johnny Human Torch.”
Sometimes, a three-point celebration is just a three-point celebration. Sometimes, a pep rally is just a pep rally. Sometimes, a smile is just a smile. And sometimes, a hat is just a hat. Only among the most deranged partisans could a universal sports ritual, a common high school activity, a typical teen face and patriotic headgear be construed as evil symbols of patriarchal oppression. These, however, are the soul-sapping, lunacy-inducing times in which we live.
The “Covington Catholic HS student vs. Native American activist” viral video saga has entered its farcical phase, judging by a ridiculous, if not slanderous report from the New York Daily News, headlined online “SEE IT: Covington Catholic High students in blackface at past basketball game.” The story is attributed to the Daily News Sports Staff (names withheld to protect the ignorant?): "This won’t help Kentucky student Nick Sandmann’s case. A photo said to be featuring Covington Catholic High School students clad in blackface during a 2015 basketball game made the rounds on Twitter Monday morning amid last week’s Indigenous Peoples March controversy."
Soon-to-be former Oklahoma University quarterback/outfielder Kyler Murray, the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner, is weighing opportunities to play professional football and baseball. Instead of accepting the freedom of African-American athletes to choose the sport of their choice, New York Daily News sports columnist Carron J. Phillips sees Murray's declaring of the NFL draft as evidence of racism in Major League Baseball.
Wanna distract public attention from your school district's lousy academic ratings? Shift the topic to Colin Kaepernick by writing a letter to the Washington Redskins imploring them to give him a tryout! And say you're teaching your students valuable lessons in the process. That's the thinking of seven members of the Prince George’s County, Maryland school board who seem more concerned with social justice than academics.
In the three years since the mass shooting by ISIS supporters in San Bernardino, California, the liberal media have grown increasingly hostile to the gracious tradition of praying for shooting victims, suggesting prayer is an obstacle to their left-wing gun control agenda.
In ridiculing President Donald Trump and NBA basketball player Kevin Durant for their strained relations with the media, New York Daily News sports columnist Carron J. Phillips compares them to dictators and bullies.
Building off a Monday rant by ESPN's Max Kellerman, New York Daily News writer Chuck Modiano demanded on Thursday the New York Giants sign you know who: cop-hater Colin Kaepernick. Since NFL free agency began in spring 2017, one liberal media type after another demanded teams sign the Castro-loving, America-bashing, former anthem kneeler even though Kaepernick and his copycat protesters have damaged the NFL's ratings.
