• Explain Please: Sports Strike and More Rioting Have Exactly What to Do with ‘Social Justice’?

    Surge Summary: Violent demonstrations, riots and now professional sports walk-outs increasingly seem to have nothing actually to do with an informed view of the “social justice” for which these are allegedly being carried out. Cowardly pols and apologists for chaos are encouraging this trend. It augers a grim future for American society unless things change with American leadership.

    Professional sports games are on hold again.  And it’s not the coronavirus this time.  Yesterday, the Milwaukee Bucks refused to play against the Orlando Magic in protest of the shooting to Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

    In short order, all NBA and WNBA games were canceled.  Major League Baseball and Soccer games were also canceled.  Lebron James is among those leading the charge. He took to social media to remind everyone that the games were being boycotted, not postponed.

    And it wasn’t just the players.  Network announcers walked off too.

    This is an escalation on the part of the social justice warrior athletes.  What exactly has happened that would lead them to go on strike?  The situation in Kenosha is more complicated than it initially appeared.  Blake was in fact armed.

    The only other thing going on is lawless rioting by people have who have zero concern for what happened in Kenosha.  There is no connection between a man being shot by police and burning down a furniture store or car dealership, ruining the lives of others.

    Whatever happened in Minneapolis regarding George Floyd’s death three months ago bears no conceivable connection to 90 days of rioting in Portland, radicals chanting, “Death to America,” and burning Bibles and American flags in the streets.

    Yesterday, a murder suspect committed suicide in Minneapolis.  Within minutes looters were running through the mall.  When did stealing shoes become the obvious response to reports of a shooting?

    The left’s weakness is sending a message to the Marxists:  “Virtually no Democrat politician in America will stop us.”  They are also learning that no matter what they do, a powerful complex of media commentators, athlete apologists, Hollywood hypocrites and cowardly CEOs will defend them in the public square.

    Feckless politicians + apologists for anarchists = horror coming to your community soon.  There is only one thing standing in the way of that possibility – the reelection of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

    I am pleased to report that Wisconsin Governor Tony Evans has come to his senses. Yesterday afternoon he finally accepted President Trump’s offer of federal assistance to stop the rioting in Kenosha.  Two hundred federal law enforcement agents are now on their way.
