Sunday's Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Toronto was one of the most politicized games in league history. Former president Barack Obama was in attendance and drew his adoring media pals away from sports and into political partisanship. And the circus also included Golden State Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr pushing gun control before and after his team's victory.
On Friday night, for the first time ever, a rainbow flag flew alongside the American flag on LGBT Pride Night at Dodger Stadium. Across the country in Wisconsin, another baseball team called strike 3 on Chick-Fil-A and banished the Christian-owned business from its premises. The LGBT blog Outsports is celebrating both events.
The man being interviewed said the president has crossed the line, that his movement is gun control and that we need people to vote in good conscience, not some crazy people who think their freedom is tied to owning an AR-15. He wasn't a politico appearing on Mess NBC. No, he's Steve Kerr, a would-be gun grabber and head coach of the NBA's defending champion Golden State Warriors. The man doing the interview was Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury-News, who had no intention of sticking to sports.
Tim Tebow's haters are out with the long knives again. Their attacks are personal, petty and pathetic, and it's not just because he can't hit AAA pitching. Deadspin blogger Tom Ley ridiculed Tebow's abstinence until marriage beliefs and called him a coward. Ted Berg, of For The Win, laughingly reveled over Tebow's poor batting statistics. In addition, Barstool Sports's "Clem" mocked Tebow and the Bible.
Yes there is crying in baseball. In fact, media are melting down because, during Monday's Memorial Day observance, a Fresno minor league team insulted socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Dem-NY). And for once, AOC and her media enthusiasts are right to cry, just not for the reasons they think.
On Sunday, Chick-fil-A was the victim of another left-stream media smear over its Christian convictions. Outsports, a propaganda blog for all things LGBTQ, demeaned Chick-fil-A as "the nation’s favorite purveyors of fast food chicken and faith-based discrimination" for donating money to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
From historically black colleges and universities (HCBU) to the major leagues, baseball is playing the race card, says The Shadow League's race-baiter extraordinaire Carron J. Phillips. African Americans aren't welcome in baseball, and the game hasn't made any real improvements in race relations ― in Philips' jaded perception.
Get woke, America! Carron J. Phillips, an SJW sports writer for The Shadow League who's incensed about Georgia's new heartbeat law, wants you to get angry, too. Phillips is astounded that conservatives consider abortion murder, says the world is now alarmingly close to "The Handmaid's Tale" and America is doing a repeat of the injustice of Dr. Larry Nassar, who, for years, got away with sexually abusing members of the U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics team.
President Donald Trump divided the 2018 World Series champion Boston Red Sox along racial lines. That's a recurring narrative of media reports on today's visit by the baseball champs to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. With most of the team's African-American and Latin players back in Boston boycotting the celebration, media referred to those present as the "white sox." Critical media also chastised the Trump White House for a tweet referring to the "Red Socks" and a reference to the 2018 "World Cup Series Champions.
In a scathing attack on President Donald Trump, The Nation's sports editor Dave Zirin defended the decision of Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora to boycott the 2018 World Series champions' visit to the White House Thursday. Zirin also criticized golfer Tiger Woods for visiting Trump today to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Original thoughts are rare in the Left-stream Echo Chamber. In reporting on golfer Tiger Woods receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald Trump Monday at the White House, the lemmings are bleating out the same bile about the golfer visiting the "white nationalist."
An outbreak in the culture wars is erupting in Tennessee, uniting left-stream media, LGBT pressure groups and the NFL's Tennessee Titans, in addition to other corporate interests, against a conservative legislature trying to pass legislation would ensure that occupants of public restrooms use the one that correspondents with their physical gender. Legislation would also safeguard faith-based adoption agencies from discrimination charges for refusing to allow children to be adopted by same-sex couples. Naturally, biased media reports characterized the bills as "anti-LGBT."
