What The NBA Commish Is Giving The OK For Players To Do To Trump Is Unbelievable..
I have never been a big fan of the NBA. At least not for a long time. I don’t know why, I guess after the eighties it just died off. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver stated it would be a “missed opportunity” if the players did not go to the White House, but it’s not as positive as you would think.
“Because that’s an opportunity that most citizens who have a political point of view would kill for — the opportunity to directly tell the president of the United States how they feel about an issue,” Silver stated, as per Breitbart.
Rather than it being a missed opportunity of seeing the White House and the president, something most people only dream about, the commissioner wants his players to show disapproval of the president! He is urging players to take their political views and shove them in the face of the White House.
Usually, when NBA players go to the White House, they advertise their league, shake some important hands, take pictures, and other things of that sort.
The White House invitation has never been used by the NBA as a political statement. However, this commissioner believes that basketball should be used for activism. He mentioned that he feels a need to focus on the black community because of the large percentage of black Americans in the NBA.
“Let me just say we’re not looking for opportunities to jump in from a political standpoint,” Silver stated before going on to completely contradict himself.
“I think we deal with whatever set of circumstances are dealt to us. No one in this league could have predicted when we awarded the All-Star Game to North Carolina that we’d be dealing with the LGBT community and fundamental rights, including access to bathrooms.”
Clearly, he wants to use basketball to push his political agenda, but he seems to be pretending there’s nothing political about that. Here are more liberals trying to push their rhetoric that Donald Trump is racist while they boycott something that cannot and will not change.
The truth is that Donald Trump has never been anything but accepting of any and all kinds of people regardless of what they look like. The only people who actually believe that Trump is racist, sexist, or homophobic are the people who listen to liberal propaganda!
