Americans are fed up with millionaire actors and athletes preaching to us about how bad our country is, and evidence for that disgust is everywhere we look. We see bumper stickers slamming Hollywood, Facebook posts ripping the NFL and NBA, and most significantly we’re seeing epic declines in viewership across the board. (snip) with their relentless condescension, virtue signaling, and total disregard for their fans, Hollywood and professional team sports are hammering the nails in their own coffins. We’re not asking you to be conservative, just keep politics out of it. If we want politics, we’ll tune to Fox News or MSNBC

They really think we care about what they think. NOT! We are not the stupid public that the Democrats say we are. Why should we listen to people in Hollywood who take their clothes off in public to get attention and who pretend to be someone else while wearing make up and wigs that other people put on them? In fact, their opinion is moot. Those who speak out are millionaires who are living the American dream and knocking it. They sound more like Communists than Americans. So, just keep your mouths shut! You have caused enough damage to our society and culture for a lifetime.

The article dances around the reasons without naming names. Say its name: Black Lives Matter, false accusation of racism, Social Justice, transsexualism, homosexuality, hatred of Donald Trump, hatred of the police, mixed race couples simply for shock value, diversity everywhere whether it makes sense or not, most times not. Thirteen percent of the population being included in over fifty percent of everything. Sexual exploitation of children. Vulgar language. Insults to all religion except islam. Coincidentally, most of the names and causes apply to both hollywood and pro sports with hollywood getting the nod for being the worst, most blatant offender.

I will admit I've watched baseball, and a few hockey games. Those two sports haven't been too in your face about the BLM BS. The NFL and NBA on the hand are just obnoxious about it. Preaching about how tough it is being black in this country while those preaching are making millions, has falls on deaf ears for most people who are too busy trying to make ends meet. Life is tough. Get over it. It's even tougher when your attitude starts with everybody is against me, and you don't live by the rules of a civilized society, and social norms. Having that attitude and mouthing off to police never ends well for those who seem to think laws don't apply to me.

While preaching Black Lives Matter and honoring various thugs, the viewing public has discovered that Sports Don't Matter. The reckoning is upon the industry...those networks and sponsors will want a huge amount of their billion dollar fees refunded...and that's what keeps $ports and million dollar pay for bench players afloat.

I'm about done with Formula One racing, too. I have watched and read about (before there was any TV coverage) Formula One, international sports car racing and a little bit of NASCAR, especially when I lived within an hour's drive of the Daytona Speedway. I have been a fan since the mid-1960s, when it was very difficult to get any news coverage. NASCAR has driven me away with the garbage from their half-black driver, but I wasn't a big fan anyway. And now that obnoxious idiot Lewis Hamilton is pushing his racial garbage on his team's Formula One car, and wearing "Arrest the Cops who killed Breona Taylor" T-shirt on the podium. I turned that off when he did that garbage. The normal color historically for most of a century for German F1 cars has been silver, and the Mercedes team cars that Hamilton (a half-black driver, white mother) drives have been silver for years, but repainted to black this season, with "End Racism" on them because Hamilton wanted it. How this BRITISH half-black presumes to understand anything about American politics, is beyond me. I am very close to totally stopping watching my primary sport that I have watched, never being much of a "stick and ball games" fan - baseball, basketball, football, soccer, hockey, golf, etc.

If this is a woke plan to destroy another US industry so other countries can truly compete, it will kill Hollywood all right, but Hollywood has been a bore for years. This may just open up the indies to a bigger audience.

Celebrities and prominent athletes are used to being catered to and lauded most of their lives. It gives them an exaggerated sense of their importance and they feel that the public needs to hear their intellectually shallow thoughts. Most of them are unaware that they inhabit the lower part of the IQ scale.

I have not watched any football this season and have paid so little attention that I do not even know how many games they have played this year. The problem with this is that I was out with friends last night and wanted to talk about something other than politics. It is not so much that we spend all evening talking about sports. It's just that that is usually what gets our conversation started before it goes off on other topics. I think its hilarious that they try to claim politics has nothing to do with the ratings drop. The people I know fall into one of three groups: those who have never watched sports, those who have stopped watching because of politics, and those whose continue to watch sports as much as ever.

I've been away from Hollywood for decades, except to watch Ricky Gervais at an awards ceremony, but I was a solid NFL fan for over 50 years. Now, I don't even know or care if they have games going on, let alone who is playing. Don't miss it. NBA? If you enjoy watching LeBron and nine other guys jump up in the air every 24 seconds, go for it.

President Trump may want to replace “YMCA” as the closing song for his rallies with Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.” Joe Biden has gone into hiding for the next four days (“to prepare for the debate”) as the social media censorship of information on Hunter Biden’s hard drive fails to force it down the memory hole.

Hunter Biden is a truly pathetic human being. He’s an addict who’s rolled in and out of rehab because of his serious drug and alcohol abuse. The recently released emails reveal a man with horrifically low self-esteem. They also indicate that his father pimped Hunter to foreign governments to act as a bagman for bribes. However, it’s possible to be both pathetic and evil. In this case, the evil may exist, not just because Hunter sold out his country, but also because there are increasingly credible rumors that Hunter’s hard drive holds child pornography. The first reference to child pornography on Hunter’s hard drive came from Chanel Rion, of OAN.

Mainstream media coverage of Joe Biden’s campaign rallies depicts a false façade, giving an impression of a normal political event. But the reality is as phony as the façades of prosperous villages that Catherine The Great’s political advisor (and lover) Grigori Potemkin erected for her to view from her imperial barge, masking the misery of her subjects. Potemkin today is remembered chiefly for the expression “Potemkin village,” defined as “an impressive facade or show designed to hide an undesirable fact or condition.” Check the link quickly before Merriam-Webster changes the definition (snip) A hilarious Twitter video has survived the “fact checkers” at the social media giant (for now)

It didn’t surprise the informed, and understandably a bit cynical, to hear that the FBI sat on Hunter Biden’s laptop instead of seeking justice. (snip) suppressing Huntergate perhaps provided a secondary benefit: The information could be used against Biden once he was in office. (snip) not only could suppressing Huntergate get Biden in office, but then maybe it’s, “Nice presidency you’ve got there, Mr. Biden — I’d hate to see anything happen to it.” Since the criminality in question could, apparently, put Hunter in prison along with destroying China Joe, the leverage is profound.

Facebook and Twitter sacrificed the final shreds of their integrity to try to censor the N.Y. Post article revealing the existence of Hunter Biden's laptop. But in their rush to throw themselves in the path of the bullet to save Joe, there was a big problem. They forgot that Rudy Giuliani has the evidence. The N.Y. Post article was an exclusive. That means all "fact checkers" that Facebook and Twitter will unleash to fact-check the article will be based on speculation, not fact. Because they don't have the laptop.

There are a lot of substantive comments to make about the two town halls. Trump held up well even though Savannah Guthrie was attacking him like a maddened chihuahua. Biden also held up well thanks to George Stephanopoulos's gentle handling and an increasing number of very long commercial breaks. (And was Biden fed the questions in advance? He seemed unusually prepared.) But the real star had to be the woman in the red mask sitting behind Trump.

It was the Commission on Presidential Debates that made the request to the FBI for an investigation, so it is not clear to me if Scully has any legal liability for filing a false report.

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes,
