Ivan Provorov’s Courage Appears to Be Contagious

When hockey player Ivan Provorov of the Philadelphia Flyers refused to be reduced to a billboard advertising depravity, his bravery sparked hope:

Liberals are furious because they know that one man’s courage can change a whole society, if others take inspiration from it.

Sure enough:

For the past six seasons, the Rangers have hosted “Pride Night Friday” at Madison Square Garden, and that tradition continued this year. On January 27, Michael James Scott, a Broadway star who identifies as gay, performed the national anthem. Andre Thomas, the co-chair of NYC Pride and Heritage of Pride, participated in the ceremonial, pre-game puck drop. The arena, especially the jumbotron, was emblazoned in “rainbow colors,” and members of the Rangers Blue Crew, the people responsible for inciting fan engagement, still carried rainbow-colored flags.

This is what we have come to expect of the NHL, which is as obnoxiously woke as every other sports league…

But the players themselves did not don any gear making reference, either by word or by symbol, to sexual relationships of any kind. Instead, they wore Reverse Retro jerseys, which depict the face of the Statue of Liberty.

Not only did they refuse to wear the ribbon, they shoved the fact that this is still America into the liberal establishment’s gasping red face.

Unsurprisingly, moonbats went ballistic:

“New York Rangers … FAIL to explain why they backtrack on promise,” a Daily Mail headline howled. Mollie Walker, the New York Post beat writer for the Rangers, complained that the team took an “otherwise a beautiful celebration of inclusivity” and turned it into a “slight” against “members of the LGBTQ+ community.”

David Kilmnick, the president of the LGBT Network in Queens, called the decision “a slap in the face.”

“If the Rangers are saying they’re going to be celebrating Pride Night, everybody needs to, for lack of a better term, ‘come out’ and celebrate,” Kilmnick insisted. “To give the OK to these hockey players to be homophobic is not celebrating pride.”

“Celebrating pride” — i.e., publicly pledging allegiance to degeneracy and perversion — should not be optional, from the woke point of view.

Rangers brass had promised that players would wear the jerseys promoting homosexuality. A statement was issued in hopes of placating the howling liberal mob:

“Our organization respects the LGBTQ+ community and we are proud to bring attention to important local community organizations as part of another great Pride Night,” the statement [groveled].


“In keeping with our organization’s core values, we support everyone’s individual right to respectfully express their beliefs,” it concluded.

Ivan Provorov had the guts to express his beliefs. Looks like Rangers players followed suit.

As the esteemed Ron DeSantis proved, push the PC invertebrates running the NHL and they will step back.

Only a tiny percentage of the population is sick enough to actually believe in the liberal agenda. The rest go along out of weakness and cowardice. They conform to liberalism because liberals are so pushy. So when moonbats push, push back the other way — if only by refusing to wear the ribbon.

Kramer may also have provided inspiration.
