LGBTification of MLB Reveals Cowards and Heroes

Aging glam rocker Paul Stanley can take heart. He no longer stands out as the most contemptible figure in public life. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass has matched him by presenting the same disgraceful spectacle of a guy sane enough to acknowledge that LGBTism is wicked but too weak not to cave obsequiously to the Gaystapo:

When cowards submitting to leftists promise to educate themselves, they renounce any claim to respect.

Bass was begging forgiveness for sharing this video:

“The ballpark is for everybody,” Bass whimpers obediently. Everybody except Christians, that is.

The context is not merely Bud Light making its customers want to puke by shoving Dylan Mulvaney in their faces. The center of attention has shifted to the highly effective boycott of Target, explicitly for targeting children for transsexualization — a path that will destroy their minds, bodies, and souls.

What Paul Stanley and Anthony Bass crawl in submission before is not merely nauseating; it is satanic. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — publicly fêted by MLB teams — make this explicit.

Although there are nowhere near enough of them to redeem the sport, a tiny minority of professional baseball players have character — including the great Clayton Kershaw, who has been promoting Christian Faith Day in response to the Dodgers hosting explicitly blasphemous LGBT activists:

“For us, we felt like the best thing to do in response was, instead of maybe making a statement condemning or anything like that, would be just to instead try to show what we do support, as opposed to maybe what we don’t,” Kershaw said. “And that was Jesus. So to make Christian Faith Day our response is what we felt like was the best decision.”

Another hero is fellow Dodger Blake Treinen:

“I am disappointed to see the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence being honored as heroes at Dodger Stadium,” Treinen said in a statement posted to Twitter via his friend Sean Feucht. “Many of their performances are blasphemous, and their work only displays hate and mockery of Catholics and the Christian faith.”

That’s the point of it. You might say it is the point of the entire LGBT blitzkrieg being waged against society.

As reported, the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” are made up of adult men who dress as perverted nuns. They also openly sexualize Jesus Christ, degrade Mary Mother of God, and disparage other key components of the Roman Catholic faith to encourage “sexual liberation.” Per CatholicVote’s Brian Burch, “In one infamous stunt, they tricked an archbishop into giving them the Eucharist — the most important sacrament of the Catholic faith — so they could defile it.”

That’s what the liberal establishment demands we revere.

Anyone who stands up to the liberal establishment deserves kudos. Anyone who submits to it lives in a state of disgrace — particularly cowards like Anthony Bass who can’t claim not to know it is evil.

Sam Brinton and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

With liberals in the driver’s seat, news themes intersect at the point of absolute moonbattery. Take for example the themes of Biden’s comically inappropriate identity-based staffing choices (e.g., Kamala Harris for being a Woman of Color, Pete Buttigieg for being a sexual deviant, Karine Jean-Pierre for being both) and the leftist politicization of professional sports. These stories converge in the personage of the cross-dressing kleptomaniac Sam Brinton:

Joe Biden’s former nuclear waste czar, who in his off-hours liked to steal women’s luggage and then pose for selfies in their clothing, has another underreported entry on his curriculum vitae. Sam Brinton is also a member of the L.A. Dodgers’ favorite anti-Catholic political group, whose members dress up as drag nuns and mock Christ–and whose slogan is “go and sin some more.”

Presenting the guy Creepy Joe gave authority over nuclear waste in his natural — or should I say unnatural — milieu:

Blessedly, Brinton has finally been put in a cage where he belongs. If only we could say the same for Creepy Joe.

Before the Biden Administration named him to be a key contributor at the nuclear waste division at the Department of Energy, Brinton appeared on the show of a drag queen nun of the Boston branch of the Sisters and talked about his life and drag nun persona — Sister Ray Dee O’Active (get it?).

This reflects the type of people we have in charge under Democrat rule.

Even if Sam doesn’t get to stay in the ladies’ jail, at least it should cheer him up that the Los Angeles Dodgers caved to the woke mob so that the ceremony revering the explicitly blasphemous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is back on.

Broadcaster Fired Over Newspeak Dictionary Transgression

It isn’t easy to find racism against blacks in a society where the ultimate faux pas is to fail to show sufficient reverence for them. Fortunately for the thought police, new crimes against political correctness can always be invented through modification of the Newspeak Dictionary and through punishment of accidental infractions. For example:

Oakland A’s broadcaster Glen Kuiper was let go by NBC Sports California after using a racial slur during a telecast while describing a trip to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Kuiper uttered the forbidden N-word. No, not that N-word. The other one: “Negro.” For reasons that have never been made clear, this word is no longer permissible, possibly not even while discussing the United Negro College Fund or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Kuiper compounded his infraction by mispronouncing the word.

“Following an internal review, the decision has been made for NBC Sports California to end its relationship with Glen Kuiper, effective immediately,” the network said in a statement Monday. “We thank Glen for his dedication to Bay Area baseball over the years.”

The thanks he gets is a shoeprint on the seat of his pants because a word came out of his mouth the wrong way.

Meanwhile, down the Left Coast, the thanks Christian fans get is to see perverts revered for ridiculing their faith. Offend people all you want in leftist realms like profession sports; just don’t accidently offend those who are “oppressed.”

Instance of Transsexual Oppression Discovered

Our rulers tell us about the oppression of transsexuals in a never-ending roar. But it isn’t every day that we find an instance of a transsexual actually being oppressed. A guy named Wesley Mumford was shunned on the winner’s podium, having committed no worse crime than ruining a bike race for all the legitimate competitors:

On Sunday, 46-year-old Wesley Mumford, who … now goes by the name Lesley Mumford, trounced the competition in the 40-49 age bracket of the women’s Desert Gravel Co2Ut, a grueling 100-mile gravel race along the desert mountains of Colorado near the Utah border. In fact, based on the final results, it could hardly be considered a competition. The second-place finisher, Lindsey Kriete, crossed the finish line a full 17 minutes after Mumford, and third-place winner, Michelle Van Sickle, lost to Mumford by more than half an hour.

Wesley’s victory might have been even more impressive if he had identified as belonging in the 70–79 age bracket. But that would have been unsportsmanlike — I mean, unsportstranswomanlike.

Even after Mumford humiliated the women both physically and emotionally, he seemed nonplussed that Kriete and Van Sickle declined to join him on the winners’ podium.

Try not to burst into sobs on his behalf.

If women’s sports are to survive moonbattery, it will take more than boycotting farcical victory ceremonies. Women need to show solidarity by refusing to compete against men in events that are explicitly for women.

Los Angeles Dodgers Honor Blasphemy

Professional sports used to be a form of entertainment. Then leftists took control. Now it is primarily a weapon to be used in the Culture War.

I watched baseball for the last time when I saw the players kneel in obeisance to Black Lives Matter terrorists who were tearing down statutes of the Founding Fathers. That spared me from having to endure more insults — like the Los Angeles Dodgers bestowing reverence upon the explicitly blasphemous LGBT militants calling themselves the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

On Friday, June 16, the Dodgers will partner with LA Pride to host a 10th annual LGBTQ night at Dodgers Stadium before a matchup with the San Francisco Giants.

Looks like the Biden Regime and the KGB FBI aren’t the only moonbats who have it in for Catholics:

At the pre-game event, a “Community Hero Award” will be presented to the LA Chapter of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The men dress in grotesque costumes styled after the garb of Catholic nuns and mock the faith with the motto “Go forth and sin some more!”

Now there’s a motto the liberal establishment can endorse without hypocrisy.

A “charity” raffle will be held to support the LA LGBT Center, which receives most of its funding from the government. The center calls itself an “unstoppable force.”

We’ll see whether this force is unstoppable.

Ladies Poker Champion Is Bearded Man

After William “Lia” Thomas became the face of women’s collegiate swimming, he was called the “Jackie Robinson of trans sports,” having paved the road for others to follow. Anything a man can do, he can pretend to be a woman while doing, potentially stealing prizes from real women. This applies to all sports — even to poker:

A man won a women’s poker tournament at a Florida casino [last] weekend…

David Hughes, of Deltona, Florida, finished first in the $250 buy-in Ladies No-limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) event Saturday during the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Presenting the ladies champion:

Looks like Hughes might have been inspired less by Lia Thomas than by Avi Silverberg, who highlighted the lunacy of transsexualism by identifying as a woman just long enough to win a weight-lifting competition.

According to anti-discrimination laws, Florida casinos are not permitted to ban men from entering a women’s event.

At this point it is hard to believe that antidiscrimination laws were every anything but tyrannical and absurd.

Florida isn’t alone. Even in the gambling capitol,

Nevada also prohibits poker tournaments from barring men from entering women’s tournaments.

Then there is Atlantic City:

In 2009, Abraham Korotki, a former WSOP Circuit event champion, won the $300 buy-in Ladies No-limit Hold’em event at the Borgata Poker Open in Atlantic City.

According to liberal ideology, women do not exist in any meaningful sense. This is why the question “What is a woman?cannot be answered by a liberal. Since women have been canceled, why should they be allowed to have their own competitions?

Mad Hungarian Learns of Another Protected Group

His antics (combined with first class talent) made Al Hrabosky, a.k.a. the Mad Hungarian, fun to watch as a relief pitcher back in the 1970s. He is still an entertaining guy, thanks to his sense of humor. But his fellow sports analysts are not amused:

During the postgame show on Wednesday night, Hrabosky offered up a “suggestion” for St. Louis’ broadcast team which was to change their hotel room to the bottom floor because they “might jump” if they’re staying on a higher floor.

The 9–16 St Louis Cardinals are not doing as well as when Hrabosky was on the team during his heyday.

The co-host handled the horrendous, unfunny joke in stride, but you could tell she was definitely annoyed by Hrabosky’s remarks.

Apparently suicides are yet another protected group. Why not? Protected status is awarded on the basis of being perceived as defective, and wanting to kill yourself is certainly a defect.

The Outkick story scolds Hrabosky for whole paragraphs and then ends with this:

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling or messaging 988.

Behold the Mad Hungarian’s thought crime:

Let’s hope his broadcast career survives.

This is why comedy usually isn’t funny anymore. You can have moonbattery or you can have a sense of humor; you can’t have both.

Trans Advantage in London Marathon

It can’t be easy for female athletes to stay motivated when they know the competition is rigged against them. Men have overwhelming advantages in virtually all sports. Despite being 54 years old, a guy calling himself Glenique Frank managed to beat nearly 14,000 women in the London Marathon on Sunday.

In a faux show of sportsmanship, he has offered to give back his finisher’s medal:

“If they really think I’ve stolen the place [of a female runner], I don’t mind giving the medal back, because I’ll run again next year for charity.

“But I don’t want to apologize, because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Frank stated firmly — saying [he] was only sorry for “upsetting” [his] critics, who [he] maintained were mostly “haters.”

Of course he stole the place of a female runner, as surely as he would have stolen the place of a child runner if he had competed in a race while pretending to be a child. But “haters” who call his bluff regarding giving the medal back risk the ire of the violent (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, etc.) transsexual community, so no one is likely to press the issue.

Global Warming Blamed for Home Runs

Blindered ideologues can apply their dogma to absolutely anything. For example, the climate cult proclaims that alleged global warming has caused baseball players to hit too many home runs:

Hotter, thinner air that allows balls to fly farther contributed a tiny bit to a surge in home runs since 2010, according to a statistical analysis by Dartmouth College scientists published in Friday’s Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. They analyzed 100,000 MLB games and more than 200,000 balls put into play in the last few years along with weather conditions, stadiums and other factors.

Scientists tend to find what the government pays them to find.

“Global warming is juicing home runs in Major League Baseball,” said study coauthor Justin Mankin, a Dartmouth climate scientist.

Maybe now people will be convinced that global warming effects them in some tangible way.

The natural and unavoidable fluctuation of the climate may really affect home runs. But there are more important factors:

The biggest is the ball and the size of the stitches … and MLB made slight adjustments to deaden the ball prior to the 2021 season. Others include batters’ recent attention to launch angle; stronger hitters; and faster pitches.

Never mind that. We are expected to panic because according to the Experts’ reliably wrong models, if we continue using the fossil fuels we require to survive, and if these fuels cause global warming as per liberal ideology, one day there may be way too many home runs, oppressing pitchers with inflated ERAs.

Swimmer Riley Gaines Assaulted by Transsexuals

Not all transsexual violence is taken to the extreme of mass murder. Lesser violence is more likely to be employed in attempts to intimidate resistance:

Swimmer Riley Gaines says she was “ambushed and physically hit” and forced to barricade for three hours from a mob of trans-rights protesters who stormed her speech about protecting women’s sports.

The 12-time All-American champ — a former competitor of controversial trans swimmer Lia Thomas -— shared alarming footage of cops hustling her to safety late Thursday at San Francisco State University.

Despite her overwhelming disadvantage, Gaines has managed to tie Will “Lia” Thomas, a transsexual bully who enjoys taking his clothes off in the women’s locker room and stealing trophies that rightly belong to female competitors. ESPN reveres him.

Gaines’ footage — as well as other clips shared on social media — show security and university staff blocking the angry mob from following the distressed guest speaker as she’s taken to a safe room at 8:30 p.m.

We now live in a country where women who believe that only women should compete in women’s sports have to be taken to safe rooms to protect them from mobs of perverted freaks who know they have liberal establishment behind them.

At 11:21 p.m., officers announced through a bullhorn that the gathering was an unlawful congregation and those refusing to leave would be arrested.

Gaines was finally able to leave at 11:38 p.m. — more than 3 hours after being first led to safety — with a huge police presence to stop her from being followed…

Fumes her husband Louis Barker,

“She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress.”

But Gaines came through the experience all the stronger. Good thing Elon Musk took over Twitter, or this would have been censored:

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Avi Silverberg

Some suspect that famous transvestites Kayla LeMieux and Dylan Mulvaney are not actually sexually deranged, but have been trolling to make a point (or in Mulvaney’s case, lots of money). Moonbats have lurched so far into self-parody that it is often hard to tell who is on the level. But the case of temporarily transsexual weightlifter Avi Silverberg is clear enough:

Silverberg, the head coach for Team Canada Powerlifting for more than 10 years, entered Saturday’s Heroes Classic tournament in Lethbridge, Alberta, after identifying as a female.

Silverberg came out wearing a beard and a standard men’s singlet.

He then casually bench-pressed nearly 370 pounds — beating the current Alberta women’s record by almost 100 pounds.

This would be a blow to women’s sports — except that the women’s record was already held by a man.

The current record — 275 pounds — is held by trans athlete Anne Andres, who was seen watching Silverberg while volunteering at the event. …

The trans lifter won eight of nine competitions entered in the women’s category over the last four years, ICONS [Independent Council on Women’s Sports] said.

Trans lifter “Anne” Andres does not fare as well when competing against other men.

As Silverberg broke her [sic] record, Andres stood off to the edge of the platform area, only strolling back on after the male lifter walked off.

Could it be that a transsexual athlete has discovered the concept of shame? Apparently not:

Andres posted a series of lengthy video responses calling [Silverberg] “a coward and a bigot” with “malicious intent.”

Actually, Silverberg’s intent was chivalrous. He was standing up for women:

ICONS said Silverberg “mocked the discriminatory [Canadian Powerlifting Union] policy” that allows competitors to register for events under their “gender identity and expression, rather than their sex or gender,” vowing “no consequences” for doing so.

But Andres did suffer a consequence. He was exposed as a contemptible jerk who has been ruining the sport for the legitimate competitors.

Well played, sir. I mean ma’am.

Moonbats Demand Mets Rename Citi Field

For moonbats, intolerance is an end in itself. So desperate are New York City liberals to find something to be intolerant about that they demand the Mets change the name of Citi Field — because Citibank invests in the precious fossil fuels that allow the city to function.

Via Fox News:

City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams is pushing to rename the New York Mets’ home stadium, Citi Field, over climate change concerns.

Citigroup pays an estimated $20 million per year to have its name on the stadium. That money is ill-gotten, from the moonbat point of view, because some of it came from investing in energy.

Because money is only clean to a liberal if it has been confiscated and redistributed by Big Government, all stadiums should be renamed “Government Field.” That would establish equity, so that no stadium would have a more appealing name than another.

“The Public Advocate and fans will cite the bank’s role in financing polluters and profiting from climate chaos,” Williams’ office said in a statement.

“Global warming” was discarded because the climate fluctuates in both directions. “Climate change” doesn’t work either, because too many understand that the climate will always change no matter what Big Government inflicts on us. “Climate chaos” will do for now. When people continue to laugh off the imaginary crisis, progressives may have to switch to something even darker, like “climate doom.”

According to leftist ideology, generating energy by effective means causes climate chaos because it releases the essential plant nutrient carbon dioxide.

Barks Jumaane Williams:

“Citibank’s practices do not represent the values of the Mets or our city, and we must make better demands. If Citi refuses to end their toxic relationship with the fossil fuel industry, the Mets should end their partnership with Citi.”

Once the values of sports teams centered on sports. Theatrical displays of obeisance to Black Lives Matter put an end to that. Sports are no longer about sports. They are about moonbattery. In a totalitarian society, everything is about the ruling class ideology.

It isn’t just Jumaane Williams. Lucas Sanchez is co-executive director of New York Communities for Change.

“I can’t teach my kids to love the Mets if I’m also teaching them about climate change,” said Sanchez, whose kids are 7, 9 and 13. “The Mets are contributing to polluting the planet by partnering with Citi.”

Imagine the effect on the 8.8 million people who live in NYC of reducing electricity to what can be generated through green energy idiocy. Civilization would collapse. Does the stench of rotting corpses count as pollution?

Citi contributed approximately $31 billion in combined lending and underwriting to oil, gas and coal firms since 2021.

Because of such investments, when viewed from the air at night, New York City is a field of light. Moonbats would prefer that it look like the leftist utopia North Korea.

Jejune Williams has ambitions.

Media Praises Transsexuals for Destroying Women’s Sports

For decades, feminism and leftism were in perfect sync. Feminists played a major role in vitiating American society by undermining the family and promoting sexual profligacy. They have served their purpose; cultural engineers are through with them now. To be woke is to despise women. A Disney-owned leftist propaganda outlet that sugar-coats political indoctrination by wrapping it in sports makes this clear:

As part of its Women’s History Month campaign, ESPN ran a minute-long promo Sunday featuring Lia Thomas — a biological male who competed on the women’s swim team at the University of Pennsylvania.

The gag-inducing segment praises Thomas as though bullying his way into the women’s locker room were somehow admirable and “celebrates Thomas’ championship in the women’s 500 freestyle.”

That is, ESPN wipes its messy behind on Women’s History Month by praising a perverted jerk who has helped to destroy women’s sports.

In other news from what’s left of women’s sports,

A former women’s cycling champion angrily quit the sport after losing to a transgender rider…

[Hannah Arensman] said that it “has become increasingly discouraging to train as hard as I do only to have to lose to a man with the unfair advantage of an androgenized body that intrinsically gives him an obvious advantage over me, no matter how hard I train.”

“I feel for young girls learning to compete and who are growing up in a day when they no longer have a fair chance at being the new record holders and champions in cycling,” she wrote.

While Arensman fumes with understandable rage,

[T]rans cyclist Tiffany Thomas, 47, was photographed with her arms aloft in victory at the top of the podium at the Randall’s Island Crit — at least her 20th win since she started racing in 2018

By “her,” they mean “his.” The media’s use of female pronouns to refer to a guy who has been ruining races for legitimate competitors emphasizes that nothing journalist say can be taken at face value.

“Tiffany” says he feels “like a superhero” because of the way defeating women at cycling stokes his ego.

Stay tuned for next year’s Women’s History Month, which is likely to feature ESPN heaping obsequious praise on Tiffany Thomas — assuming anyone remembers there was once such a thing as women’s sports next year.

Girls’ Team Banned for Not Playing Against Team With Boy

Liberals shriek that we must let men play on women’s sports teams because “tolerance.” Here’s what they mean by tolerance:

The Vermont Principals’ Association, which oversees school athletics, said Monday afternoon that Mid Vermont Christian School in Quechee will no longer be eligible to participate in sports and other sponsored activities.

This draconian punishment was inflicted because the private Christian school forfeited a girls’ basketball game rather than play against a team that reduced the concept of girls’ sports to farce by having a boy on it.

Mid Vermont violated the organization’s anti-discrimination and gender identity policies, the organization told the school in a letter of ineligibility. Those policies allow athletes to play on the team that is “consistent with their gender identity” and prohibit discrimination “based on a student’s actual or perceived sex and gender.”

Leaving aside the blasphemous aspect of transsexualism, Mid Vermont Christian had good reason to refuse to play Long Trail School:

Mid Vermont Christian’s head of school, Vicky Fogg, said in a statement last month that the school believed “playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players.”

However, if our woke overlords gave a flying damn about women’s safety, they would not impose their ideology by placing men in women’s prisons.

Jay Nichols, the executive director of the Vermont Principals’ Association, said the organization’s 15-member executive board was unanimous in its decision.

Everything is to be unanimous in liberal utopia. The fate of Mid Vermont Christian illustrates what happens to those who don’t go along.

Nichols said he could not remember any prior instances of a school being barred from sporting events. There is no existing appeals process, he said.

Again we see that the word “tolerance” means zero tolerance for anyone who resists the grotesque leftist agenda.
