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.
The winner of Sunday's 2018 UCI Women's Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles towered over the runners-up on the victory stand. Silver medalist Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and bronze medalist Jennifer Wagner of the U.S. never had a chance against gold medalist Rachel McKinnon, a biological male of superior height and leg strength.
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett took heaps of abuse this past week for opting to punt on fourth-and-one during last Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to Houston. This weekend, former NFL cornerback Domonique Foxworth, who now writes about racism in sports for ESPN's social justice blog, The Undefeated, made Garrett the poster boy for white privilege at the expense of African-Americans unable to secure jobs as head coaches and general managers in the NFL.
Retired football superstar Herschel Walker (second from right in photo) has expressed disgust with CNN for not firing Don Lemon, Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer after their "despicable" remarks about rapper Kanye West's (second from left in photo) White House meeting with President Donald Trump. The Washington Times and Fox News are among the very few covering this story, but most networks are ignoring Walker's remarks.
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.
"PC mascot police" in the media were quick to write Chief Wahoo's "obituary" as soon as the Cleveland Indians' season ended Monday. When Houston swept the Tribe 3-0 in an America League Division Series, it also brought an end to the 71-year history of Cleveland's Chief Wahoo mascot and logo. Media have been demanding the head of Chief Wahoo, as well as the end of the Washington Redskins' nickname, for a long time.
Yahoo Sports' Jason Owens leaves no doubt as to his partiality in the ongoing NFL protest controversy. He's against President Donald Trump, with Colin Kaepernick and definitely all-in with a brand new protest by the New Orleans' Saints SJW running back Alvin Kamara.
What happened at halftime of a high school football game at Brookhaven High School, in Jackson, Miss., this weekend may have been one of the darkest hours in Friday Night Lights history. Students from the visiting Forest Hill High School marching band staged a halftime skit in which students dressed up as doctors and nurses held other students dressed as SWAT team members at gunpoint. The Tribunist reports, "The move would be controversial at any game, but is even more shocking as two Brookhaven police officers were killed in the line of duty last week."
As the 50th anniversary of the protest-marred 1968 Olympic Games nears, the New York Daily News' Carron J. Phillips and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are glorifying Colin Kaepernick, as well as the two disgraced sprinters who staged a black power salute during the national anthem in Mexico City. The International Olympic Committee stripped Tommie Smith and John Carlos of their medals and expelled them from the Olympic Village. A 1968 headline in the Evening News declared, "Games are Rocked by Black Power." Media reporting has shifted 180 degrees since then, as many reporters sympathize with radical social justice warriors.
Liz Clarke and Mark Maske of The Washington Post blame President Donald Trump for catapulting the NFL's national anthem protests into a national issue last year. Not Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, Michael Bennett, Travis Kelce or the other players who blatantly disrespected veterans throughout the 2016 and 2017 NFL seasons. In today's Post, the writers explore the reasons behind the comparative calm during the first month of this season and also offer support for one of the pet projects of the NFL's social justice warriors — bail reform for people accused of crimes.
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.
Multi-millionaire football player Eric Reid (see photo) is back in the National Football League and shooting off the kind of anti-American remarks that would make his old kneeling buddy, Colin Kaepernick, proud. In Jason Reid's story on The Undefeated, Eric Reid says America's 400-year history of racism continues, African-Americans lack economic opportunity and "You can’t live in your own house in America without getting killed."
