ESPN’s Domonique Foxworth Denounces Old Glory

Was it an exaggeration to say that if the Confederate flag can be made illegal in New York, Old Glory herself may be designated a hate symbol? Unfortunately, no. ESPN — the tip of the spear for leftist propaganda on television — has already designated the American flag as politically unclean.

ESPN host Domonique Foxworth made our flag’s status clear while denouncing Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen:

“I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. … It’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the Second Coming, and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skull and crossbones.”

The leftist sports media establishment has spoken: the American flag is the equivalent of the Jolly Roger. Dogs too are politically suspect, but maybe dogs named “Barack” are okay.

Greatest Generation Meets Modern Moonbattery

Gwen Berry unfortunately is not the only moonbat who falls far short of deserving the honor of representing the USA in the Olympics. Via Becker News:

Members of the U.S. women’s soccer team turned away and put their hands behind their back during the National Anthem at a ‘send-off’ match before the Olympics on Monday.

This while WWII vet Pete DuPré performed a talented rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner on harmonica:

At least these pampered princesses refrained from falling on their knees before their god Black Lives Matter, as we have seen from grotesquely overpaid NFL, NBA, and MLB players. But if they expect us to care who wins Olympic events, it is not too much to ask of those in charge that they throw off the team anyone who refuses to show respect for America.

Disney Goes Full Moonbat

Disney billed itself as the “Happiest Place on Earth.” Now it has opted to become the Wokest Place on Earth. Once seen as quintessentially American, it has plunged headlong into explicitly anti-American ideology.

Christopher Rufo reports:

Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma—and bombarded employees with trainings on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” “white saviors,” and launched racially-segregated “affinity groups” at the company’s headquarters.

Anonymous whistleblowers have provided Rufo with documents related to “Reimagine Tomorrow,” a campaign to impose an anti-American and in particular anti-Caucasian ideology on everyone who works for this massively influential corporation.

The core of Disney’s racial program is a series of training modules on “antiracism.” In one module, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” the company tells employees that they must “take ownership of educating [themselves] about structural anti-Black racism” and that they should “not rely on [their] Black colleagues to educate [them],” because it is “emotionally taxing.” The United States, the document claims, has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia” and white employees, in particular, must “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” Disney recommends that employees atone by “challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” and “I don’t see color”; they must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and must “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.”

Believing that people should be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin is something to atone for, according to Disney’s woke overlords.

In another module, employees are instructed that they must reject the concept of equality and embrace equity, just as the federal government has done under Biden’s handlers. This means rejecting individual liberty in favor of the totalitarian control necessary to guarantee that everyone gets what the government believes they deserve according to their identity group.

America is denounced for having a “racist infrastructure.” As we have learned from Biden’s latest looting spree, “infrastructure” means whatever leftists want it to mean. So does the word “racist.”

Disney’s “21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge” program demonizes whites, men, and heterosexuals for the political crime of having “privilege.” The concept of “white fragility” is utilized to ridicule Caucasians who defend themselves. Saying, “I was taught to treat everyone the same” is presented as an example of white fragility. The woke understand that only racists treat everyone the same; antiracists are reverent toward blacks and despise whites.

“Individualism” and “timeliness” are denounced as “white dominant” values that “perpetuate white supremacy culture” and therefore must be rejected.

Employees are encouraged to brainwash their young children with toxic race propaganda, to oppose funding for police, to support Black Lives Matter maniacs, and to “decolonize” their bookshelves — i.e., stop reading books written by white people.

Disney has created racially segregated “affinity groups” for blacks (called Wakanda), Latinos (called Hola), and Asians (called Compass). To suggest that whites might also have an affinity group would probably result in instant termination.

Multiple Disney employees told me the political environment at the company has intensified in recent months. There are “almost daily memos, suggested readings, panels, and seminars that [are] all centered around antiracism,” said one employee. The company is “completely ideologically one-sided” and conservative and Christian employees are actively discouraged from expressing their views.

Gina Carano can tell you what happens to those who express opinions not compliant with leftist ideology.

This fanatical devotion to moonbattery has already affected Disney’s cultural output:

Content managers have modified and added “content advisories” to films such as Dumbo, Aladdin, and Fantasia, which, according to an internal video that I have obtained, executives have denounced as “racist content.” In the same video, Executive Chairman Bob Iger pledged that the company “should be taking a stand” on political controversies and no longer “shy away from politics” in the future.

Anything produced by Disney should be regarded as leftist propaganda. Alarmingly, impressionable children will be the most obvious casualties. However, no one exposed to the mainstream media/entertainment establishment will escape. Disney owns ABC, ESPN, Touchstone Pictures, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, Hollywood Records, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, 20th Century Studios, and Searchlight Pictures, among other operations in a position to excrete moonbattery directly into the cultural bloodstream.

No matter how powerful Disney is now, it will pay a price for its hostility toward its own audience. Similarly iconic Coca-Cola also recently went whole hog with hard left politics, and has already begun to regret it. America isn’t dead yet. Those who pile dirt on its premature grave will face backlash

Mark Cuban Backpedals on Anthem

First limousine leftist Mark Cuban banned the Star-Spangled Banner. From yesterday:

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has banned the national anthem from being played before the franchise’s home games, he confirmed to The Athletic’s Tim Cato.

The Mavericks have not played the national anthem before any of their home games this season. …

When NBA players put an increased focus on [hard left radicalism] while playing at the Walt Disney World bubble, Cuban became one of their biggest supporters.

This was too much even for the NBA, which is infamous for pandering to Black Lives Matter and communist China, America’s worst internal and external enemies:

The NBA has announced that all of its teams will play the national anthem before games, “in keeping with longstanding league policy.” The statement appears to be a direct response to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban telling his team to stop playing the song before games.

Now we read this:

Following blowback for not playing the national anthem before games, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he did not “cancel” the song…

Cuban told ESPN’s “The Jump” that the team was having ongoing conversations about whether to play “The Star Spangled Banner,” but that “we probably would have ended up playing it at some point when fans came back.”

There were fans Monday night, but the anthem wasn’t played. However, following the NBA’s order,

The Mavericks played the national anthem before Wednesday’s game and all players appeared to stand. Several fans cheered afterward.

This country isn’t dead yet, despite the efforts of moonbats. Even among NBA fans, love of the USA probably tops politically correct hatred of it. Only firm control of the media makes the Democrat Party viable.

White Boxer Called Racist for Knocking Out Black Opponent

Political correctness has reached such an extreme of absurdity that it is considered racist for a white guy to punch a black guy — even in a boxing match. Jemele Hill, formerly of ultrawoke ESPN, suggested during an interview that white boxer Jake Paul is racist for knocking out black opponent Nate Robinson.

Via Breitbart:

Paul appeared on the show Hill co-hosts with Cari Champion, called Cari & Jemele (Won’t) Stick to Sports, in which the two regularly mix politics with sports.

During the interview, Hill asked Paul, “Considering where we are right now in our racial conversation in America, was what you did to Nate Robinson racist?”

“That is the question of the week,” Champion chirped before Paul answered.

At first, Paul couldn’t believe they were serious. But they persisted. Hill asserted that “it’s a sensitive time right now, we just had to witness a white man knock out a black man smooth out in front of all of America, and that’s why I asked that.”

Then Champion asked him the same question. To his credit, Paul failed to denounce himself for racism.

[B]efore moving on to other topics, Champion accused Paul of not being “woke” enough and refusing to be part of the “conversation.”

Liberals must not have eradicated the last vestiges of sanity, because Hill got enough public flak that she was forced to fall back on the lame “Can’t you tell I was only kidding” defense.

In the future, white boxers will be required to stand with their hands at their sides while black boxers pummel their faces. Even if this fails to create racial harmony, it will at least provide masturbatory material for Democrats.

The Effect of Moonbattery of College Football

Moonbattery has a similar effect on everything it corrupts. Because of moonbattery, Western music went from Mozart and Beethoven to random postmodern noise that could be performed by a cat walking along a keyboard. Western art went from da Vinci and Rembrandt to “artists” literally squirting paint onto the canvas out their behinds (with lavish public funding). American politics went from James Madison to Joe Biden.

This story summarizes the effect moonbattery has had on college football. It follows up on gender pioneer Sarah Fuller kicking off for Vanderbilt in a men’s football game against Missouri last week:

During the 41-0 blowout loss, Fuller became the first woman to play in a major college football game when she kicked to start the second half. The ball went a staggering 30 yards.

“There were some people on the sideline tearing up,” quarterback Mike Wright said during a Saturday morning College GameDay segment on Fuller’s kick.

Here is what made the football players cry:

Sarah Fuller was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for that kick.

No matter what lengths of asininity and absurdity they achieve, progressives will continue to progress still further. Stand by for historic milestones featuring “otherly abled” quadriplegic football players.

US Women’s Soccer Team Showcases Anti-American Agitprop Abroad

Over the past months, information has seeped through the MSM information blockade, allowing people to become aware that in addition to being anti-American, Black Lives Matter is a violent Marxist movement founded upon brazen lies. The media-induced euphoric support ginned up in the wake of a career criminal dying of a drug overdose has faded. Nonetheless, Black Lives Matter mania lives on in the sports world:

[T]he United States women’s soccer team protested the national anthem and made a social justice statement with “Black Lives Matter” uniforms prior to a game on Friday.

Ahead of their game with the Netherlands’ national team, the American women walked out of the locker room wearing jackets emblazoned with “Black Lives Matter.” During the playing of the American national anthem, nearly every member of the team knelt, according to ESPN, a sign of protest against America.

The very slogan “Black Lives Matter” is a protest against America — an affirmation that per leftist propagandists, America is an awful country because it is mean to blacks. Ironically, sports are conspicuous for showcasing the opportunities available to blacks only in the USA.

Is it too much to ask that when you are explicitly representing the United States abroad, you refrain from ostentatious displays of anti-American ideology?

If they keep it up with the moonbat politics, athletes may surpass journalists to become the least respected profession in America. In contrast to the NFL, NBA, and MLB, at least women’s soccer players don’t aggravate the insult by getting paid hundreds of times more than the allegedly racist working stiffs who fund their frivolous activities.

Decency and human rights. From a Marxist movement.

Keith Olbermann: Arrest Trump and Pence Immediately

Given how dramatically Democrats have gone off the rails into authoritarianism, lunacy, and malice, it isn’t easy to remain at the vanguard. Yet Keith Olbermann continues to lead the way ever deeper into the fever swamps of moonbattery with his latest rant:

Olbermann shared video of the rant on Twitter Thursday night, writing, “TRUMP MUST BE REMOVED AND ARRESTED, TONIGHT.”

On what charges? Olbermann doesn’t think things through that far.

The MSNBC/ESPN alumnus dismissed the many millions of Americans who voted for Trump as “morons” and fretted hysterically that even if the liberal establishment can shoehorn Harris I mean Biden into power through voter fraud, Trump will run again in 2024.

Elsewhere during the evening, Vice President Mike Pence tweeted, “I Stand With President @realDonaldTrump,” to which Olbermann fired back, “Then you need to be arrested and removed tonight as well.”

Difficult as it is to take people like Keith Olbermann seriously, if we don’t push back against voter fraud, we will find ourselves ruled by them. In the context of modern history, current trends suggest that it won’t be long before they start loading us onto boxcars.

Overpaid Ballplayer DeAndre Hopkins Flips Off Trump Supporters

Absurdly overpaid ballplayers don’t show much respect for the regular Americans who fund their extravagant lifestyles:

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, 28, appeared to flip off a miles-long caravan of Trump supporters as he drove past in his Ferrari on the way to State Farm Stadium for Sunday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

According to KSAZ-TV, a caravan of people supporting President Donald Trump for re-election rallied that day on several Arizona highways, including I-17, Loop 101, 202, and I-10.

Hopkins, who drove past the caravan making obscene gestures with both hands, was easily identified by a distinctive shirt that he showed up in at the stadium soon afterward.

His appalling behavior went beyond disrespect into reckless disregard for public safety:

Members of the pro-Trump caravan accused Hopkins of driving recklessly, speeding and swerving in and out of the caravan line.

He has a reason to behave like a sociopath:

Hopkins is a vocal Black Lives Matter supporter…

If he believes in Black Lives Matter, he must believe that all those normal people supporting their president are racists responsible for his intolerable oppression. If it weren’t for them, he wouldn’t have to drive a Ferrari. He wouldn’t have to scrape by on the $29 million per year he makes playing a game for part of the year. That must be why he supports a movement devoted to denigrating our country and tearing it down.

No doubt more than a few of the people he flipped off and endangered are Cardinals fans. Or at least they were. Eventually, regular Americans will figure out that moonbat entertainers need us; we do not need them.

What the MSM Was Afraid to Tell You

As a special service to anyone who might have been stranded at the airport all last week with no access to information other than CNN, Liz Wheeler brings us up to date on what happened:

To recap:

• According to Gallup, 56% of Americans say they are better off now under Trump than before Trump — despite the prolonged misery inflicted by COVID-19. Biden says he doesn’t want their votes.

• Liberal favorite Keith Olbermann emerged from the fetid cesspit of moonbattery known as ESPN to proclaim that anyone associated with Trump must be “expunged” and “removed from our society” — an apparent reference to the gulags and firing squads that characterize societies run by people who share Olbermann’s political outlook.

• Mostly peaceful protesters in Portland knocked over a statue of Abraham Lincoln, confirming that their agenda entails the total destruction of our heritage.

• The 88 Notre Dame faculty members who signed a petition denouncing Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination include representatives of useless subjects like the Gender Studies Program but not of the law school where she taught.

• Alexandria public schools won’t let students attend class in person because COVID-19, despite the lack of medical justification for this; meanwhile, the school district’s superintendent Gregory Hutchings pulled his own daughter out of the public schools and put her in a private school that allows in-person attendance.

Keith Olbermann Calls for Incarceration of Conservatives

He’s back. Now that sports have been definitively absorbed by the ultraleft — as emblemized by ballplayers ritually genuflecting to Marxist terrorists as they burned American cities — there is nothing more for Keith Olbermann to accomplish at hyperpoliticized ESPN. So he is once again dropping the sportscaster facade and coming out as a straightforward moonbat demagogue.

Olbermann has left ESPN for the fourth time to devote himself to helping Joe Biden by hosting a YouTube show. Watching the show won’t do your blood pressure any favors, but helps clarify what is at stake if people like Olbermann can exploit the empty vessel Biden to secure power in Washington.

The Blaze quotes him from his show on Thursday:

“The task is two-fold: the terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box, and then he, and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs, and Sean Hannitys, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Gullianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while we try to rebuild it and to rebuild the world Trump has destroyed by turning it over to a virus.”

Olbermann did not state what alleged crimes Trump and his supporters “must” be prosecuted for.

Never mind what they will be prosecuted for. There is no shortage of Lavrentiy Beria types in the Democrat Party. Beria headed Stalin’s secret police. His motto: “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”

It must please Olbermann immensely that Kyle Rittenhouse is already behind bars for the “crime” of defending himself from Black Lives Matter rioters who were trying to kill him.

The others would have to be imprisoned on openly ideological grounds.

As Dennis Prager recently noted, it is hard for Americans who have not spent time in a country like the USSR to understand how intolerable totalitarianism makes life. Nor can most of us get our heads around the possibility of the USA becoming such a country in the near future.

Thanks are due to Olbermann for making it clear that those who reject leftist ideology might perish in Soviet-style gulags if the radicalized Democrat base gets its way. If Biden is elected and the Democrats take the Senate, who is going to prevent it?

Notice that Democrats have not been screeching much about gun control. That is a sure sign that confiscation will be at the top of their agenda when they take power. Otherwise, Olbermann et al. will have a hard time getting us to board the trains.
