Demanding societal change and ending racial injustice has been a major part of the NBA’s restart at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
The highly-paid and overly pampered professional athletes of the NBA, the NFL, as well as other sports franchises in America, have been given over to serve as a mouthpiece for the radical Progressive Left agenda of Black Lives Matter. They very badly need a wake-up call, and there is only one way to give it to them. A complete and total boycott of all games, all merchandise, all support of any kind.
What the people who run the sports conglomerates either don’t realize or have forgotten is that people watch sports as entertainment, sports have historically been a way for people to escape the stress of everyday life, not add to it. So when you turn the watching of children’s games into indoctrination sessions that promote the doctrines of the most-radical elements of our society, don’t be surprised when people start turning the games off, burning their jerseys and walking away. I know I did.
The NBA proudly says that basketball now is a “whole new game”, and they’re right, it certainly is. I don’t like, and I won’t watch it. Their stated goal of “demanding societal change” is beyond the scope of what a game is supposed to be all about, and it is wrong to drag the fans away from the game and into politics. Whole new game, you say? Walk away, I say.
NFL teams halt practices over police shooting in Wisconsin
FROM YAHOO! SPORTS: Multiple NFL teams cancelled scheduled practice sessions on Thursday in the wake of protests against the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.
After a day of tumult in US sport on Wednesday, when a boycott by the Milwaukee Bucks forced the NBA to halt its playoff schedule and prompted other sports to follow suit, NFL teams reacted on Thursday by halting training camps.
The ‘Peaceful Protests’ Of Black Lives Matter:
Black Lives Matter is all about “racial inequality” and “ending police brutality”, right? Just keep telling yourself that, looks like it’s a good time to buy a gun.

The Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts and the New York Jets all scrapped practice sessions with the start of the new season only a fortnight away.
“The Colts will not practice today,” Indianapolis said in a statement. “Instead the team will use the day to discuss and work toward making a lasting social impact and inspiring change in our communities.” The Washington Football Team also postponed a scheduled practice game at the team’s FedEx Field.
“The players, coaches and football staff will meet as a football family and we will continue our open dialogue on the issues of racism and social injustice in our country,” head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement late on Wednesday.
“We are all in this together.”

Thursday’s three NBA playoff games will be postponed
FROM ESPN: Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks — the NBA’s team from Wisconsin, a state rocked in recent days by the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man — didn’t take the floor for their playoff game against the Orlando Magic. The teams were set to begin Game 5 of their series shortly after 4 p.m. ET, with the Bucks needing a win to advance to the second round. That matchup, along with the Oklahoma City Thunder–Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers–Los Angeles Lakers games, was postponed.
Demanding societal change and ending racial injustice has been a major part of the NBA’s restart at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The phrase “Black Lives Matter” is painted on the arena courts, players are wearing messages urging change on their jerseys, and coaches are donning pins demanding racial justice. READ MORE
