Perhaps most of us would have been surprised a few years ago if big named million dollar athletes decided not to stand up for our National Anthem or perhaps wore a “Black Lives Matter” tee-shirt or raised a black power fist in defiance, at an opening sporting event, or witnessed a celebrity Hollywood icon threatening a presidential candidate with a vulgar display of speech and physical violence…however not anymore!
If anything we’ve witnessed within a few short years America becoming a crude, uncivil society, where the so-called “elites” whether in Hollywood, in the mainstream media, or in the world of sports, no longer subscribe to civil discourse or care very much in promoting a positive or uplifting image for others to emulate.
So it’s not surprising when sports organizations like the NBA, and some within that organization play that same politically correct “gender or race card”, or whatever other card they have in that progressive deck against someone like Donald Trump.
In that “IDENITY POLITICS” has now become the overriding criteria and the standard by which people are now judged.
Take for example LeBron James who is a big Hillary Clinton supporter, when asked if the NBA Champs the Cleveland Cavaliers would accept an invitation to visit the White House under a Trump Administration, if they once again won the championship.
James responded: “I don’t know. That’s something I would cross. We’ll have to cross that road, I guess. We’ll see. I would love to have to cross that road.”
Aside from the convoluted non-response by James, his teammate Richard Jefferson left no doubt that he would not accept a future invitation by the Trump White House, by referencing his visit to the White House on Thursday in celebration of the teams win and posting a photo on SnapChat of the event saying: “Words cannot express the honor I feel being the last team to visit the White House tomorrow.”
The “last team?”
What’s obvious is that almost 50% of those who cast their ballot, voted for Trump, perhaps if those Cleveland Cavalier fans decided to sit out the rest of the season or perhaps tune them off, LeBron James and Richard Jefferson would be singing a different tune…in short the box office speaks louder than their nonsense.
SHARE this on Facebook and BOYCOTT the NBA for insulting our President-elect and the millions of Americans who voted for him.
