The National Basketball Association (NBA) has come increasingly under fire for their close relationship with China after Daryl Morey, general manager for the Houston Rockets team, posted a controversial tweet in favor of Hong Kong freedom protesters.
The public continues to make the situation more difficult for NBA executives, as producer Andrew Duncan reportedly bought 300 tickets for protesters to wear ‘Stand with Hong Kong’ t-shirts during a Nets/Raptors game last week.

“We want to use our performance art to show our support for Hong Kong and the NBA,” organizer Chen Pokong said to the New York Post.
“It seems like NBA people cannot choose their words,” he added. “So if we don’t stop them, they not only will do bad things in China, they will do bad things in America.”
This will likely only make China even more angry at the NBA, as they have already threatened retaliation against NBA commissioner Adam Silver for not being sufficiently subservient to the communist totalitarian nation.
“To please some American politicians, Silver has fabricated lies out of nothing and has sought to paint China as unforgiving,” the Chinese communist propaganda network CCTV said, adding that Silver would receive “retribution sooner or later.”
The NBA’s signature player – LeBron James – issued a groveling response to the controversy that only made the situation worse. Despite a long history of taking “woke” stances against President Donald Trump, James bowed to his Chinese masters when his back was against the wall.
“I don’t want to get into a [verbal] feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” James said last week.
“And so many people could have been harmed not only financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually. So just be careful what we tweet and say and we do, even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that, too,” James added.
“I’d be cheating my teammates by continuing to harp on something that won’t benefit us trying to win a championship because that’s what we’re here for,” James told reporters. “We’re not politicians. It’s a huge political thing. But we are leaders, and we can step up at a times, but you don’t feel like you should upon things you shouldn’t have to.”
James’ jersey is even getting burned in Hong Kong by freedom protesters who have recognized him as a villain lacking courage to make a political stand that might hurt his bottom line:

This public relations nightmare for the NBA is worsening at a rapid pace, as the league’s hypocrisy finally catches up with them.
VIDEO: Dana White Devastates New York Times Hack After Successful UFC Pay-Per-View
White put the fake news in their place.
UFC promoter Dana White has been dogged by fake news reporters for pushing to continue his fights during the coronavirus panic, as they have worked at every turn to stop him from giving his fans what they want.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said last month. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
The push back from fake news hacks and Democrat Party officials eventually forced White to cancel several shows, but he held the ultra successful UFC 249 pay-per-view on May 9. They drew a massive 700,000 buys for the event as the public grows more disgusted with the unprecedented shutdown of society.
“We absolutely destroyed it,” White said to Yahoo Sports via the telephone on Monday. “It was a home run by every measure. The early trends were good and they continued.”
The fake news media is very angry that White was able to hold a successful show despite their complaining. There have been prominent hit pieces published about the organization in the days following the event.
White’s response is classic and shows exactly how an individual or an entity should deal with the fake news vultures when under attack.
“F**k that guy… F**k that guy,” White said of the New York Times reporter who wrote an article critical of the UFC.
“You know what happened with that guy? That guy, who has never covered the sport ever before, was writing a story about [UFC parent corporation] Endeavor… and what do you think happened when this guy who and this paper covered the UFC when they never covered it before? What do you think happened? F**kin’ story was huge. They did killer traffic,” White explained.
White explained how the popularity of his organization was propping up the failing rag that is hemorrhaging money and going bankrupt rapidly.
“Now they’re writing stories three a week, and they’re posting live results. I don’t give a s**t what that guy thinks, what he has to say, or what he writes. Good for him, he’s pulling good traffic,” he added.
“I don’t give a f**k. Don’t give a f**k,” White said to conclude his rant.

White has set a great example to anyone who must deal with journalistic parasites. His defiance has put them in their place and humiliated them on a grand scale.
