Wayne Root: LeBron James is Destroying The NBA

More under the heading of leftism destroys. LeBron is an entitled, isolated centi-millionaire who rarely knows what he is talking about, and he is destroying his sport with his BLM and SJW nonsense. Good riddance. Well, at least they will have their China market!

Leftist Lockdowns Are Killing Our Kids

An alarming study out of Wisconsin showing a significant increase in anxiety and depression among adolescents and a decrease in physical health associated with school closures and the cancellation of sports. Anyone with kids or who coaches or mentors young athletes (I fit both categories) could tell you this anecdotally. Leftist politicians drunk with power and forcing us into isolation are literally killing our kids. It must stop, especially since the virus so far has been proven to have little to no impact on those under 20.

The sad reality is these corrupt mayors and governors in, you know the states – CA, NY, NJ, MI, IL, MA, ect – are leftist elites, think they know it all, and DO NOT CARE about you or your kids. The Democrat Party – you know, “science”. Their understanding of science is farcical. They only care about control, and they will NEVER admit a mistake. They only way to change this is to vote them OUT.

Sports Has A Problem And Being Woke Won’t Help

Excellent analysis on consumer opinions and the threat to multiple industries with the advent of Covid,  the resulting lockdowns, and now domestic unrest, bullying by the left and virtue signaling aplenty. The author focuses on sports and echos my views. A lot of data to back up his claims.

Jason Whitlock Calls Out Athlete and Social Media Outrage and Cancel Culture

Whitlock is one of the preeminent voices in sports media (and a black man coincidentally) calling out leftism for its intolerance and bullying in culture and how it is ruining sports. He is also a strong free speech advocate and recently joined Outkick the Coverage. He echos many of my comments or perhaps vice-versa. Here is a little tip to coaches, owners and administrators. Next time a black athlete has a temper-tantrum over some fake “injustice” or racism, tell them black unemployment was at an all-time low under the current president they seem to hate so much, until the illegal Covid lockdown pushed largely by Democrats caused it to soar. Maybe they will stop and think.

The Left Destroys Everything (or Tries To)

Let’s not allow them to ruin sports. The left has already destroyed journalism. They have damaged education immeasurably. They have tried mightily to ruin entertainment. They have tried with sports but have yet to succeed. There are a few reasons for this. In certain sports the fan base skews conservative. Very few sports are run by or followed by leftists primarily. Fans tend to be patriotic. People want their sports free of politics. The misguided kneeling protests in the NFL and the politicization of ESPN, both of which damaged their businesses, are proof of this. In addition, sports represents a meritocracy and a real opportunity to compete and socialize with people from diverse backgrounds. Sports usually bring out the best in us. My kids have had the opportunity to compete with and against kids who are white, black, Asian, and Indian with not a single issue or problem. They are teammates, opponents, friends and are respected as human beings, not as some racial group. Sports unites us, but leftism divides.

You can count on the far-left to use the Floyd killing and domestic unrest to once again politicize sports. It is already happening, from the shameful bullying of Drew Brees, who said nothing wrong, to the NFL prostrating itself at the alter of BLM. And it is going to get worse. It is probably a blessing right now that we are largely sports-free, saving us from the preachy lecturing from a bunch of multi-multi-millionaires. One black ex-football player nailed it when he said “the NFL has done more to lift black men out of poverty than perhaps any business in the country’s history. quit complaining”. If athletes and leagues want to use their bully pulpit to tell us how terrible we are and to repent, I suggest we all vote with our feet. Sports are supposed to be an escape. I am perfectly fine playing rec sports as an adult and watching my kids compete in high school. I am happy to walk away from sports entertainment if the left takes over.

Women’s Sports Are Being Sacrificed on the Alter of Transgenderism

Remember when the left supported Title Nine in the name of providing more opportunity for women to compete in sports? Remember when the left wanted equal rights for women in all things? Yeah, me too. Now, consistent with my radical left hierarchy of grievance, women athletes are being thrown under the bus by the transgender crowd and most of the left remains silent. Just recently a transgender woman crushed the field in a major powerlifting competition but was stripped of his (her?) title, fortunately. Now, a “transitioning” man literally ran the competition out of the stadium at an NCAA track and field championship. The NCAA, never an organization known to take strong moral stances has of course prostrated itself to not offend the transgenders.

This is a complete disgrace. The evidence is already in that even “trans” women, like men are far and away physically superior to women generally. This will lead to the destruction of women’s sports if not stopped immediately. An average male college basketball player would dominate the WNBA. Serena Williams would not be in the top 100 tennis players in the world if forced to compete with men. Where are the feminists on this? I will tell you: they are terrified of the LGBT crowd.

ESPN Reportedly Losing 10,000 Subscribers Per Day

I have written about this before. Sports outlets in general and ESPN in particular have overtly become SJW and PC. ESPN has aggressively promoted a far-left agenda and has seemingly been taken over by BLM. No surprise, but its business is tanking. What is particularly worth perusing in the linked article is the research correlating sports fandom to political affiliation and engagement. Not surprisingly, a majority of sports fans skew conservative. The exceptions being tennis, soccer, and the NBA. Oh, and both WNBA viewers.
