Trump Just Got Big Last Laugh On WNBA Champs Who Refuse To Go To White House

Published

on

It’s become cool in sports these days to tell everyone within hearing range that you wouldn’t go to the White House even if you were invited. You see it throughout the sports world now. And it doesn’t matter if it’s the pros, college or even high school… everyone is taking a political stance these days. It’s disheartening.

On the top of the heap of irrelevance here comes the WNBA champs, who have not been invited to the White House after their win this year but saw fit to preemptively refuse any invitation coming their way from President Trump. Well, Trump got the last big laugh because I seriously doubt he even considered inviting them. They are utterly irrelevant. This is sheer grandstanding for attention to get their name in the media, which it did.

The Seattle Storm’s team point guard Sue Bird, of course, blabbed to the Seattle Times that they would NEVER accept an invitation from the current occupant of the White House. Great! Their loss and frankly, they were on no one’s radar, to begin with.

“At this point does it even need to be discussed?” Bird told the Seattle Times Friday. “It’s come up. We pay attention to what happened with Minnesota and not getting invited. … We all pay attention to what’s going on.”

How arrogantly pathetic. So much for sportsmanship. The point guard was referring the Minnesota Lynx, which took home the WNBA championship last year and hosted a community service event in Washington, DC, earlier this year after they did not receive a White House invite from President Trump. What is it with these teams? They all seem to have a vastly over-inflated opinion of themselves.

The Storm won their third WNBA title Wednesday night against the Washington Mystics. Meh. Didn’t even know about it… don’t care.

“It’s a huge disappointment,” the 11-time All-Star said. “[It] used to be something that’s really special and something that was an honor and you look forward to.” Well, missy, you don’t deserve it. With that attitude, I wouldn’t have you in my home much less the Peoples’ House.

WNBA championship winning teams frequently visited the White House under former Presidents George W. Bush and Obama. But the disrespect that is shown President Trump makes for an argument to not even bother with the WNBA anymore.

Bird said it’s no longer something to look forward to… gee, wonder why? You mean she doesn’t get it? Bitterly biased and clueless all at once, it’s a twofer!

“There’s an excitement about it. You’re going to the White House. I remember first walking in to meet President Obama and it’s like — just the aura — it’s insane,” Bird continued. “And now it’s, that’s not what the feeling is anymore. It doesn’t feel exciting. Nobody wants to go. It’s totally changed and that’s disappointing because it used to be something that most athletes looked forward to.”

“I think until people see a change it’s probably going to be the norm,” Storm forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis said. “I don’t see many people that are going to accept the invitation if they get one.” Well, all I can say is good riddance to bad rubbish. They should never be invited again.

Will Americans even notice that they aren’t visiting the White House? Not many and even fewer will care. Athletes have become so self-centered, arrogant and elitist, they aren’t worthy of visiting the President of the United States.

But they love Obama who was the left’s chosen one. Yes, let’s be groupies for a president that was Marxist in my opinion. Let’s fawn over a guy that was at best a progressive socialist. Maybe while donning a ‘Che’ shirt, or perhaps even ‘Mao’.

This certainly isn’t the first time a team won’t be invited to the White House or even disinvited. Last year, Trump withdrew an invitation for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors after star Stephen Curry said he didn’t want to attend. Wish granted!

The South Carolina women’s basketball team and the North Carolina men’s basketball team, which won NCAA titles in 2017, declined White House invitations. The Notre Dame women’s basketball team and the Villanova men’s basketball teams — the 2018 NCAA champions — have not received invitations.

Earlier this year, NBA star LeBron James also criticized Trump for not inviting the WNBA champions for a visit to the White House, telling reporters that it was “laughable” for the Minnesota Lynx to be excluded. Americans are not laughing, LeBron. Those that show disrespect for their president and for America have no business going to the White House.

NFL Team Replaces American Flag With Enraging New Version – Grossly Unacceptable

Published

* By

As TV ratings dwindle, stadiums suffered from low attendance this weekend – as photos of thousands of empty seats make their way around social media, and football season gears up, players choosing to take a knee in protest during the National Anthem shows no sign of abating. Meanwhile, the NFL itself continues to be utterly tone-deaf to the majority of America.

A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 54% of Americans polled believe kneeling during the National Anthem is inappropriate. Only 44% state they do not mind the kneeling players, according to the Washington Times. The poll revealed that those that no longer choose to follow the NFL as a result of the protest had grown by 10% since the last time the poll was taken in 2014.

Even as much of the mainstream media and sports media alike continue to loudly support protests and players insist that it is their First Amendment right to conduct them, it appears that for all intents and purposes they have failed to convince the rest of America of their message. Many have chosen to simply tune out rather than continue to support what they view as complete disrespect for combat veterans, the fallen and their families.

Those choosing to protest and their supporters insist that the protests are not about any offense to the military but while perhaps they do not intend to do so, that is exactly what they are doing. And, since the NFL’s future depends on selling overpriced ad spots to massive corporations looking for a consistent number of eyeballs, alienating any group of viewers, for whatever reason, is just bad for business.

Consistent with the tone-deaf message of the NFL, the Green Bay Packers management made an epic blunder in their recent choice to display a rather odd looking variation on the American flag. During the pre-game ceremony, Green Bay Packers displayed a made-up version of the American flag during the National Anthem, which was three solid color stripes with the blue stripe containing the stars.

Social media exploded with those fans that still choose to follow the NFL and the Packers with commentary ranging from that “what in the world is that?” to “that’s not my flag!”

The message was loud and clear. That is not the American flag and the Green Bay Packers should get rid of this banner immediately. Perhaps this might be the one occasion where taking a knee during the National Anthem might be acceptable and appropriate?

Pictures of the pregame ritual before the Green Bay Packers-Buffalo Bills matchup on Sunday went viral after several fans at Lambeau Field snapped photos of a red, white and blue flag with modified stars and stripes.

Either way, it seems Green Bay got the message as the team announced directly after the game that it will no longer use the “banner,” according to Fox 11.

As the local news affiliate reports:

“During the National Anthem, the team used a red, white and blue banner. The banner had stars on the blue stripe.

“It’s not American, not American at all,” said Sandy Austin. “There are a lot of people who have quit the NFL because of the pre-game stuff and all that’s going on.”

“In a statement, Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey said the banner was not meant to represent the American flag.

“‘The banner used during Sunday’s pregame ceremony supplemented the three U.S. flags on the roof of the stadium and the flag carried by the color guard on the field. We’ve used such displays from time to time in the past when other pregame elements take up a significant portion of the field. To avoid causing confusion, we will not be using such displays in the future.'”

According to Packers management, the University Of Wisconsin marching band featured approximately 200 members and they claim the marching band took up too much of the field to unveil the entire full American flag.

But that explanation was not flying for many Americans and the Green Bay Packers will no longer use the fictional flag banner. For the most part, the Packers have not chosen to actively participate in the “take the knee” protests during the National Anthem though they did choose to lock arms during one Thursday night game last season.

NFL franchise owners’ support for the “take the knee” protests appear to be very much contingent on ratings and revenues, and many believe they will only continue to tolerate the protests as long as they do not negatively impact the bottom line. Case in point, the almost immediate decision to cease using the pseudo-flag in the representation of America.

NFL owners are nothing if not businessmen, so as Americans continue to hit them in their wallets by voting with their dollars, choosing to tune out or simply not attend the games, nothing is likely to change. Until attendance declines precipitously or it can be determined that the protests have directly impacted the bottom line and/or a corresponding decline in television ratings, they are unlikely to put their foot down.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Published

* By

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.
