    To understand the modern world, perhaps the most important rule one needs to know is this: Everything the Left touches it ruins. This first became clear to me years ago during my radio show. I was talking about the Left's war on the Boy Scouts (for not accepting announced gay people). It was becoming clear that this would ultimately lead to the decline of the Boy Scouts, which led me to ask: "Will the left replace the Boy Scouts with a left-wing Boy Scouts?" Then I answered my own question: Of course not. Because the Left only destroys; it doesn't...

    America loves college football, loves its flyovers and cheers and opportunities to show patriotic pride, and doesn't want it tainted by politics.When college football came roaring back in September, sticking it to the Faucian fear porn that gathering with fellow fans in stadiums (or with anyone, anywhere) wasn’t “smart,” fans cheered the camaraderie of mass sports gatherings — as well as the lack of politicized messaging, in contrast to the wokeness of pro leagues like the NFL. Fans made their disdain for the COVID establishment known with chants of “F-ck Joe Biden,” and later the more tactful euphemism “Let’s go,...

    Last year, when it was hard to field a team during COVID, Flower Mound joined a league from nearby Keller. Rhett Taylor, vice president of the Keller Youth Association, said the group’s five-member board decided the Flower Mound team should be ejected from the playoffs – even though they’re the top team. “This is the Keller league, not the Flower Mound league,” Taylor said. “In my mind, they’ve dominated our league.” Taylor also is a coach and a father. His team lost to the Rebels 33-0 this season. “My team got one first down all game,” Taylor said. “And my...

    Current and former professional athletes slammed Friday's not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial as evidence of a racist America and criminal justice system. The charges against Rittenhouse were first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree intentional homicide. The trial, which lasted several weeks and finished with closing arguments on Monday, resulted in the jury on Friday finding Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts after three days of deliberations. Colin Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, said the result of the trial shows the need for "our current system" to be abolished...

Tursun also warned star player LeBron James, one of China’s biggest business partners in the league, to distance himself from the regime “because money cannot do everything.” Tursun was participating in a march Friday organized by the East Turkistan Government in Exile in Washington, DC, the purpose of which was to demand that the administration of President Joe Biden act to protect the Uyghur people from the ongoing genocide they are enduring...

    House of Strauss ^ | 11/12/2021 | By Ethan Strauss
    Sports are back, certainly as a TV product. The NFL is up in the ratings over last season. The NBA, buoyed by a resurgent Warriors, improved Eastern Conference and avoidance of Thursday Night Football, is up over last season as well. So all is well, right? Let’s just say there’s an issue, one that franchises are attempting to obscure. I’m looking at it through the prism of the NBA, because that’s the sport I’m obviously most familiar with, but this is a broader problem that could explode into a larger story. Jacob Feldman of Sportico gives us a good look...

    Peloton has been accused of blocking people from using the hashtag “LetsGoBrandon” on its fitness platforms because it doesn’t meet its guidelines. The fitness equipment company has been sending users an error message when they try to connect with others on the Peloton App using the tag, according to screenshots published by PJ Media on Wednesday. The phrase has become an anti-President Biden rallying cry in recent weeks, ever since an NBC reporter interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown on Oct. 2 mistook a vulgar chant from the crowd — “F–k Joe Biden” — as “Let’s go, Brandon.” As the phrase...

    The Las Vegas Raiders waived 2020 first-round pick Damon Arnette and have now cut ties with both first-round picks from that draft before the midpoint of their second season. General manager Mike Mayock called it a “painful decision” to release Arnette on Monday but said it was necessary in response to a social media post with Arnette brandishing a gun and threatening to kill someone. Arnette was drafted 19th overall with a pick acquired in the Khalil Mack trade despite what Mayock called “significant concerns” about his character. Arnette was rated lower on most draft rankings but the Raiders believed...
