Freshly emboldened by the NCAA’s withdrawal of all championship games from North Carolina over that state’s HB2 law, which requires that people use the bathroom of their gender as assigned at birth, the Rainbow Jihad, represented by Outsports, has now trained their sights on getting schools they don’t like kicked out of the NCAA entirely.
Listen up you bigoted, insensitive, and intolerant Bible-thumping right-wing nut jobs in North Carolina. The Sporting News is gonna learn you something about inclusion and respecting people different than you.
Cyd Zeigler hit the NCAA from the left in a Tuesday post on Outsports for not going far enough in their move to take NCAA playoff games in several sports out of North Carolina over its "anti-LGBT 'HB2' law." Zeigler contended that "if the NCAA is serious, it is only a matter of time before BYU [Brigham Young University] gets kicked out of the association...[a]nd every other school with an anti-LGBT policy." The writer singled out several religious schools for having "policies...far more sinister and discriminatory than North Carolina."
The North Carolina GOP issued a statement, expressing their disappointment with the NCAA’s decision to pull 7 major championships from their state, using the State’s HB2 law as the reason.
USA Today totally respects and acknowledges your right to freedom of religion. Until it doesn’t. At least that seems to be what they’re getting at in an article titled, “When Religion and the LGBT Collegiate Athlete Collide.”
On the April 19, 2016 edition of Real Sports, HBO's Bryant Gumbel urged the top executives of the NBA, NFL, and the NCAA to penalize North Carolina over H.B. 2, which he underlined has been "labeled the most extreme anti-LGBT measure in the country." Gumbel claimed that the new law "uses the guise of bathroom concerns to deny certain rights to gay and transgender people, and effectively green lights discrimination towards them."
College is an ideological and intellectual “safe zone.” That is unless you’re a university that disagrees with the social justice warriors currently running the LGBT movement. Then it’s a kill zone.
In a pretty naked attempt to land thousands of additional clients and exponentially increase the size of his clientele base, sports agent Donald Yee, who is also a lawyer and represents such notables as New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady and New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees, took to the pages of The Washington Post where he completed the liberal hat-trick by using the race card, class warfare, and boycott/protest to call for paying college athletes.
If USA Today has 99 problems, having too many issues to report that are of crucial interest to readers would clearly not be one of them.
On Tuesday, USA Today Sports ran a piece documenting the odyssey of transgender male athlete Keelin Godsey, an 11-time All American and National Champion in women’s hammerthrow.
Las Vegas bookies are betting on the University of Kentucky to win the NCAA men’s basketball title, ESPN reported. But that’s not where left-wing billionaire George Soros has his money.
With the Final Four facing off next weekend, Soros has focused on the long game. He put his money into the other three remaining schools, albeit for non-sports related reasons.
On July 24, it was discovered that Senator John Walsh (D-Mont.) had plagiarized his thesis statement as part of earning a master’s degree from the United States Army War College and led to the College revoking his degree on October 10. Back on August 7, Walsh announced that he would not be seeking reelection (as he originally planned) and would leave office after his term ends.
Throughout the whole scandal, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC combined for only one story in the form of a news brief on CBS This Morning on July 24 that lasted for 31 seconds.
Leave it to the Daily Beast's Dean Obeidallah to lay out a false dilemma supposedly facing the National Collegiate Athletic Association while simultaneously resurrecting at the end of 2013 a left-wing bogeyman that is so 2012.
"The NCAA is facing a momentous decision in 2014: Will it stop partnering with Chick-fil-A—or revise its bylaws so it can support discrimination against gay Americans?" Obeidallah asked in the open of his December 27 post "The NCAA’s Big Gay Choice: Chick-fil-A or Equality?"
