Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 6/29/2020 7:30:34 PM

No, this is not a satire piece from The Onion or The Babylon Bee. That’s actually a legit headline, up there. Shocked? Me neither. The NBA has announced that when the league begins its shortened 2020 season in Orlando on July 30, players will have the option to replace their name on their jersey with a “social justice” statement. The league and the National Basketball Players Association had been in discussions to allow players to wear social justice messages on their jerseys, according to a report by ESPN on Saturday night.

At the rate that the owners of NFL and NBA teams are bowing down to their majority Black employees, they should expect that their spectator audience will soon be all Black. Sportsthat are dominated by multi millionaire Black athletes should count their blessings not their grievances.

FTA: "...a number of players have been “concerned” about resuming a game for which they’re paid millions of dollars becoming a distraction from the business at a hand: the “social justice movement.” If they're that concerned, maybe they could just donate the millions of dollars they are paid for playing the game to less well compensated social justice warriors? Oh, never mind. Much easier to virtue signal in self-righteousness. The NBA is on its way to idiocy and irrelevance, along with the NFL, NASCAR, etc.

Kids have no idea what they missed. The camera work is maybe better. Certainly the video is better, but seeing Dr. J at work or watching the Celtics move the ball the length of the court without a dribble as a team, are things the shuffling feet players of today could not do. Also watching Wilt in the lane against Russell was a game within a game. Today's ball hogs are less interesting than pickup games at a park.

Not only are these spoiled black multi-millionaire players and white mega rich owners killing the NBA golden goose that laid the golden eggs but they are gutting it and trampling on it's entrails. Do these fools actually think they are not alienating and infuriating at least half of their paying customers who are paying them their millions, and do they not realize that they are also destroying any chance that future black youngsters will have of attaining the same chance at wealth and opportunity they themselves had by promoting this anti-American, Racist, Marxist garbage? Ignorant, narcissistic, racist, unpatriotic, and colossally stupid fools. Talk about digging your own grave!

I can very easily see a group of sports that no longer make money from ticket sales or populist viewership, but from corporate payoffs to keep the Marxists from calling them racist. So, while they should whither up and die from lack of attention, they will continue as the cultural center of overpaid, dysfunctional minorities, and you will pay for it in every consumer good you buy.

#34 is spot on. Those three or four steps allowed have always been a peeve of mine. The refs used to call us for walking if we even so much as palmed the ball while dribbling. That and NBA games now taking 30 minutes to play the final 3. The last game I watched in person was the Hawks against the Celtics, Dominique Wilkins vs Larry Byrd. Someone gave me courtside tickets. Great game but that was the last. I haven't watched an NBA game since then. I didn't quit for political reasons. I just lost interest as the game degenerated. This move will just eliminate most of their remaining white audience.

Harken back four years ago and recall how the media confidently predicted a Hillary Clinton landslide electoral victory over Donald Trump. They held firm to this prediction even when the election was all but over. At 10:20 PM ET on November 8, 2016, election night, the New York Times confidently proclaimed, in the manner of Baghdad Bob, that Hillary Clinton had an 85 percent chance of winning the election. Long faces and tears graced cable news election night coverage shows by then and Hillary probably was on her second bottle of chardonnay, drowning her sorrows over a coronation that was not meant to be.

The proposal, one of 28 championed by the Virginia Senate Democratic Caucus to reform the state’s law enforcement systems, would get rid of the current law that considers an assault of a police officer a Class 6 felony and imposes a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months. The Virginia code states: If any person commits an assault or an assault and battery against another knowing or having reason to know that such other person is a judge, a magistrate, a law-enforcement officer … a correctional officer

Many conservatives voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 solely because the fate of the Supreme Court was at stake. They will have to do so again in 2020, because the Court remains liberal, and Democrats want to pack it further. Nominally, conservatives have a 5-4 majority, if the only consideration is the party of the president who nominated them. But Chief Justice John Roberts has repeatedly sided with the Court’s liberals, from the Obamacare decision until today. In the last two weeks alone, Roberts has sided with the liberals in the LGTBQ discrimination case; the case blocking President Trump from rescinding DACA (for now); and now, on Monday,

Former president Barack Obama has been "working" on his third memoir for several years. In that time, his wife, nutrition extremist Michelle Obama, has authored and published her own internationally best-selling memoir, Becoming. For whatever reason, Barack appears unable to tolerate his wife's literary success. He has expressed an almost pathological level of annoyance at Michelle's ability to complete a memoir in under two years. It was a sore subject in 2019, when the Atlantic published a (sort of) preview of Obama's forthcoming tome, but with few details beyond the fact that the former president was struggling to keep it under 1,000 pages.
