Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy announced the release of new t-shirts in “honor” of NBA star LeBron James for “denouncing freedom of speech”.
On Twitter, the Barstool Sports founder revealed his new t-shirts which mock the NBA star and his tone deaf comments regarding Daryl Morey’s legitimate expression of solidarity with Hong Kong protestors.
He dedicated this shirt to all “Lebron fans who want to crush freedom of speech and oppress the masses.”
On the “Pro Lebron/Pro China/Pro Communism tshirt”, there is writing the below the image which says “F*** Daryl Morey” in Mandarin. Portnoy proclaims that these shirts will “sell like hotcakes in Beijing.”
But Portnoy did not stop there. He also launched “Lebron Civil Rights tshirt” for people to decide whether “they want to be a capitalist or a communist depending on how it affects your bank account just like Bron Bron does.”
The Barstool Sports Founder then went on Tucker Carlson’s show to discuss the release of these shirts and point out the hypocrisy of James’ comments regarding American and Chinese politics.
Is it wrong to admit that if China guaranteed they’d buy 1 billion Barstool T-shirt’s I’d be Team China? pic.twitter.com/GZ4DDSb3ih

Athletes like LeBron James take for granted the civil liberties like the freedom of speech that they enjoy in the United States.
However, the bigger story about this NBA/China drama is the rising degree of Chinese influence in American business affairs.
Since China took off in the 1980s, it has become a major player in international economic affairs.
As a result, it has spread its influence far and wide, which has caused some concern for countries such as the United States.
Due to the authoritarian nature of the Chinese government and the many business norms imposed on American companies that do business in China, American businesses effectively adopt many of China’s authoritarian practices such as the muzzling of free speech.
This is on full display with the recent NBA/China drama where people are now questioning whether the NBA is under too much Chinese influence.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
