Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, tweeted “fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.” Thank God for him even though he was forced to retract the tweet and apologize. China went ballistic about his political comment, threatened the NBA (National Basketball Association) and the NBA bowed and begged for forgiveness. China is an immoral bully wanting to control the world.
Hong Kong citizens wave American flags, sing our National Anthem and the church hymn ‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’ in protests as icons of the movement to break free from the ruthless, violent and intolerant communist government. Freedom fighters want what America used to be.
Meanwhile here, rich athletes throw shade on the anthem as coaches and players trash-talk President Trump and America. Antifa criminals burn the flag, vandalize property and assault citizens. Woke politicians disrespect law enforcement by demanding that they stand-down in favor of anarchy.
In the China - Morey dust-up, Golden State Warrior’s Coach Steve Kerr and his star Stephen Curry were asked about their take on the Morey moment. Though college-educated and knowledgeable, both acted as if they weren’t familiar with the most populous and barbaric country on the planet where the NBA makes hundreds of millions.
“They hadn’t given much thought to the HK uprising.” Really? Neither Kerr nor Curry were up for their usual political sound bite? Maybe they would have taken a question on Trump’s support of law enforcement.
San Antonio Spur’s Coach Gregg “I Hate Trump” Popovich called the president ‘cowardly.’ Oh, now cowards would be the NBA elite. The NBA can’t acknowledge anything positive about Trump. He ain’t Woke (politically correct).
Trump is right about China. The Clintons made millions selling U.S. technology to China and uranium to Russia. China has stolen our technology and collected billions for decades in unfair tariffs from America. The NBA sells out Hong Kong freedom-seekers for cash. Is the primarily black NBA today’s slave traders making good off the Chinese.
It is regretful that of all the balls in the NBA few belong to players, coaches and management. The ballers go-big trashing cops and the President, and talking racism when the cost to them is nil. But they act like spoiled children when their wealth is on the line and they get chain-jerked by their ChiCom partners.
As more and more players, coaches and sports media politically snipe at conservative politicians and patriotism, like cockroaches they suddenly scurry from the spotlight when China jack-slaps the NBA. Big political mouths at ESPN, sports media and NBA teams are suddenly shushed.
The Woke NBA elite long ago sold their soul while winking at the Chinese slamming millions of Uyghurs, Falun Gong, Christians and political activists into concentration camps.
The NBA ignores 60-80 million Chinese that have been murdered or starved. Were the NBA ignorant of the booming organ harvest business where live incarcerated ‘donors’ are DNA matched and parted-out? Pro-abortion NBA people weren’t so concerned with the one-child, forced sterilization and abortion policies? Atheist liberal ballers do not care that Chinese of various faiths are hunted, harassed, tortured and killed. Banned literature like the Bible is considered contraband when found coming through the border. Nothing to see here.
It’s ok to kiss-up to China’s rulers but not support the small people of Hong Kong wanting our Bill of Rights and Constitution for their own. The Morey tweet blessing exposed the NBA dark side.
God is the color commentator on NBA’s gutter morals recorded in Isaiah 5:20, “Doom to you who call evil good and good evil. Who put darkness in place of light and light in place of darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!...24 But they won’t get by with it. As fire eats stubble and dry grass goes up in smoke, their souls will atrophy, their achievements crumble into dust, because they said no to the revelation of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, would have nothing to do with The Holy of Israel.”
If authoritarian-loving institutions – such as the media, democrats, schools, and unions had policing powers like China is there any doubt that they would put Christians and other American anti-Woke groups into prison camps?
