Don’t Like BLM Posturing in Sports? Wash Po Says You’re “Anti-Justice”
Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer has some bad news for normal sports fans. “Sports escapism has been suspended,” he wrote on Aug. 6. “There is a chance the ol’ reliable expectation of games as breezy diversions may never return.”
Awful: CNN REFUSES to Ask NBA Commish About China Ties, Biden Donation
Hours after ESPN decided to stand up to China on Wednesday by publishing a devastation piece on player abuse at the NBA’s Chinese academies, CNN and Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer brought on NBA commissioner Adam Silver for a 16-minute segment that not only ignored the league’s love affair with the communist, concentration camp-running country, but Silver’s support for Joe Biden.…
Six Pro Sports Figures Who’ve Refused the BLM KoolAid
There are few profiles in courage these days. Americans are enervated, bullied by politicized medicos, ruthless cancel culture and violent America haters who’ve been eagerly abetted by media that have all but dropped the pretense of objectivity. Already hollowed out by creeping progressivism and terrified of social media infamy, our institutions’ default response is groveling before the mob.…
‘Get The Hell Outta The Country!’ Mike Ditka TORCHES Anthem Kneelers

SI: Giants Pitcher Who Wouldn’t Kneel ‘Hid Behind Religion’
Don’t do groupthink? Sports Illustrated’s Dan Gartland will judge you. He’ll even lecture you about your Christianity.
Rays Tweet ‘Opening Day Great Day to Arrest Breonna Taylor Killers’
Ya gotta feel for the Tampa Bay Rays. Imagine having your Twitter account hacked by political extremists on Opening Day? You’re trying to gin up enthusiasm in a fan base that couldn’t come to your (craptastic) ballpark if they wanted to, and some basement Bolshevik is posting Black Lives Matter propaganda on your twitter feed.
Does NBA Have a Conscience? League Cut Ties to Chinese Academy
Let’s face it: “Uyghurs” isn’t easy to spell, and “Stand With Hong Kong” is kind of long for the back of a jersey, at least compared to “BLM.” And being confronted with actual systemic oppression is pretty embarrassing for millionaire athletes who fancy themselves social justice warriors. So the victims of the Chinese communist government really couldn’t expect even a nod from the oh-so woke…
'Gun Control' Bob Costas Re-emerges at CNN
Bob Costas is set to bring "valuable opinions" as a contributor to a new employer -- CNN. Some of those opinions made him very unpopular during his many years at NBC, where he bloviated about gun control, the future of football and team nicknames during NFL broadcasts. He left NBC, for whom he also hosted the Olympics for 24 years, in 2017, not on the best of terms.
TNT to Promote Social Justice, Joe Biden in New Program, 'The Arena'
Oh, joy, tonight's debut of "The Arena" on TNT will give social justice warriors one more forum to shove sports to the sideline. Joe Biden's campaign will also get a boost from the program featuring Charles Barkley, Draymond Green, Jemele Hill and others, which starts tonight, airs nightly through Friday and continues through the NBA's upcoming shortened season.
Straight Talk? Roenick: NBC Fired Him for Being Hetero Trump Supporter
Back in June, our nominally conservative U.S. Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional to discriminate against employees on the basis of sex or sexual orientation, making it exceedingly difficult for a company to fire the guy caught getting freaky with the office copier. Perhaps now we’ll find out if those protections extend to normal people.
Cancel News Network: CNN's Harlow Urges WNBA to Oust GOP Owner
On Thursday morning’s CNN Newsroom, host Poppy Harlow brought on WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert to encourage her to forward the radical cancel culture of Black Lives Matter. Harlow pressured Engelbert to force Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler to sell her co-ownership of the Atlanta Dream due to her opposing the WNBA’s endorsement of BLM. Harlow even compared Loeffler…
Deadspin Slams GOP Senate; Claims Sports IS Politics
Okay, so the "stick to sports" argument has been defeated once and for all by Deadspin writer Donovan Dooley. He claims that former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville's Tuesday victory over Jeff Sessions in the Alabama Republican run-off election is all the proof we need to stop insisting media and athletes separate politics and sports.
‘Washington’s NFL Team’: GMA Hypocrites Now Refuse to Say Redskins
The hypocrites at Good Morning America have decided that since the Washington Redskins are officially changing their name, the moniker must be racist. On Monday, the show’s journalists refused to say the word “Redskins,” awkwardly choosing instead to mention “Washington’s NFL team.” This is a convenient change for ABC, which previously freely used the name, including for a Dancing…
ESPN Reporter Attacks GOP Senator Over Letter To NBA
ESPN's insane business model is to use television, radio, websites, social media and the ESPY Awards to insult its ever-shrinking consumer base. This bizarre strategy makes social justice friends, while lowering viewership to pathetic levels. Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski just joined ESPN's club of political firebrands by telling a Republican member of the U.S. Senate to “fuck off,” and…
