  • LSU Determined To Split It's Fan Base And Destroy It's Sports Programs

    LSU Facebook Basketball page ^ | 07-09-2020 | Uncle Sham
    With this latest insult to it's majority white fan base, LSU and many of it's former black basketball players put their skin tones above what is best for the school and it's support from fans in another display of total ignorance in support of Black Lives Matter. How many more insults can a state financed institution throw at it's fans who just want to be left alone? That the school actively supports this effort and that it is occurring during an election year is criminal. The leftist behind all of this have destroyed one thing after another in their demonic...
  • Washington Redskins Name Opponents Ashamed of Own Heritage

    Janitor's view ^ | July 7, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    Washington Celtics could replace Washington Redskins because the Irish are proud of their heritage and many North Americans are simply ashamed of their heritage. The word "redskins" is a physically descriptive term that doesn't have inherently negative characteristics. The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term "Oklahoma". If we consider the characteristics of the people the term "redskins" was first applied to, it's a positive term. I'm attempting to understand why some of the descendants of the people Christopher Columbus called "Indians" say they are ashamed to be called "redskins". The only explanation I can think...
  • LeBron Demands NFL Pay Reparations to Kaepernick [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 28 Jun 2020 | John Semmens
    Racial justice expert and National Basketball Association star LeBron James says "the National Football League owes former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick an apology and reparations for their suppression of his career. He was on his way to greatness, but was denied the opportunity to achieve it for political reasons." Kaepernick had some success in the league and led his team to the 2013 Super Bowl where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-31. The following season, the team finished the regular season 12-4, but lost in the Conference championship game. After these two stellar seasons, Kaepernick signed a...

    Powerline ^ | 27 June 2020 | Steven Hayward
    Did you hear the noose today? It was indeed fake. Talk about the ultimate pseudo-event. Meanwhile, the left is actively trying to strangle America with its violence, canceling, and Orwellian re-writing and erasure of our past. Yes, the current scene is grim and serious, but always remember, especially over your Saturday morning coffee, is that one thing the left really hates is being laughed at. So let’s keep up the mockery and ridicule!

    It’s not enough for the leftist climate activist elites to promote their climate agenda in Big Tech company policies alone. Now Amazon has decided to infuse its climate agenda into the naming of a stadium to shove it into sports fans’ faces.

    Grabien News ^ | 06/24/2020 | Tom Elliott
    top us if you’ve heard this one before: The media — excited about a story that confirms all of its favorite narratives — gives the “news” prominent airtime before journalists actually do the hard work of thoroughly fact-checking. And, before long, the actual news turns out to pretty much the opposite of what these credulous reporters claimed. It happened with Jussie Smollett. It happened with Covington. It happened with the Virginia girl whose dreads were supposedly cut off. And now it’s happened again — in the most predictable, absolutely unsurprising development of 2020.
  • ‘The Masters’ Golf Tournament Should Change ‘Racist’ Name, Writer Says

    Gateway Pundit ^ | June 24, 2020 | Eric A. Blair
    "Tiger Woods, other big-time golfers and corporate sponsorships should demand it. In the current climate, with all the sweeping changes, it’s only right and just. Best of all, in this case, it’s a simple and smooth fix. The Masters never felt good or even sounded good when you said it. And before we hear from the choir about tradition and history, save it. When that history and tradition is rooted in slavery, it shouldn’t be preserved and honored. Augusta National was built on grounds that were once a slave plantation and was the property of a slave owner."
  • NASCAR should be cremated on the same pyre as Disney: the “Bubba Wallace Noose” was a pure, calculated marketing hoax. And they ALL went along with it. EVERY TEAM.

    Barnhardt dot Biz ^ | 6/23/2020 | Ann Barnhardt
    NASCAR is dead to me. DEAD. The Conservative Treehouse has proven what many of us instantly suspected: it was an in-house NASCAR hoax (because obviously – NASCAR infield garages have better security than the White House), specifically the “noose” was the manual garage door pull-down that EVERY bay at Talladega has. Duh. I mean, these cucked* crackers make Juicy Smoolyay look like a tactical genius. *The word “cucked” is not an obscenity. It is the adjective form of “cuckold”, a man who permits other men to fornicate with his wife. The rhyme is coincidental. Several things need to be pointed...
  • NASCAR and Bubba Wallace people claim it’s ‘offensive and hurtful’ to question noose claim, there’s still just 1 big problem

    Twitchy ^ | June 23, 2020 | Sam J.
    NASCAR has yet to address some very basic questions about the so-called noose incident with Bubba Wallace. Some people are questioning whether the incident actually happened at all, if it was staged, or even if it was just the rope used for the garage doors. Apparently not taking this at face value is ‘offensive and hurtful’ to NASCAR and Bubba.

    NASCAR released a news Sunday (June 21) from Talladega Superspeedway after a noose was found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 car. The news broke just before 11 p.m. but the discovery was made that afternoon. Officials responded with a statement vowing to identify any individuals involved in the act as soon as possible. No one person was attributed to the release. “Late this afternoon, NASCAR was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the 43 team,” the statement read. “We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | June 17, 2020 | B. David Ridpath
    Without revenue from the NCAA Final Four tournament and other sources of income, it is clear that the intercollegiate athletics industry faces difficult choices from the consequences of the coronavirus. College sports will confront a continuing crisis until adequate testing is in place, along with social distancing at athletic events, or a vaccine is created. In essence, every college athletic director must have a plan that anticipates reduced or canceled 2020-2021 fall and winter sports seasons, along with reduced institutional and student fee subsidies. Thanks to declining enrollment, the 98 percent of all athletic programs that require significant subsidies to...
  • Dire Social Justice Repercussions: ESPN Viewership Sinks To 41-Year Lows

    Newsbusters ^ | June 13, 2020 | Jay Maxson
    By force-feeding its viewers an unwanted diet of systemic racism and social justice, ESPN has thinned its viewership to an all-time low. The blundering miscalculation sank ESPN's audience this week to the lowest numbers in its 41-year history. Good luck defending this hair-brained strategy to your advertisers, ESPN. Clay Travis, of Fox Sports Radio and a frequent ESPN "Woke Center" critic, put it all into perspective on his Outkick The Coverage blog.: "The network, which has become more left wing than MSNBC and CNN combined over the past several weeks, has completely abandoned sports coverage. The result? Viewers, many of...

    The stars and bars have been banned from NASCAR racetracks. Finally. On Wednesday afternoon, three days after the Cup Series showed a unified front against racism at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and only a few hours before Bubba Wallace's No. 43 Chevy hit the track at Martinsville Speedway adorned with an image of black and white hands embraced, NASCAR announced it was officially pulling the battle banner of a nation long gone off of its racetrack properties. It's the culmination of a one-man campaign by Wallace, who this week appeared across major news outlets and called for NASCAR to finally do...

    Powerline ^ | 12 June 2020 | Paul Mirengoff
    There’s good news and bad news regarding the English Premier League. The good news, from my perspective, is that the EPL will resume its football season next Wednesday, June 17. The bad news is that all players will wear the words “black lives matter” on their jerseys. As I understand it, for the first 12 matches — those through June 22 — the names of the players on the back of their shirts will be replaced by “Black Lives Matter.” Thereafter, all players will wear the BLM logo. Accordingly, I probably will skip the first 12 matches and maybe those...
