NASCAR had posted up signs outside of the Talladega Superspeedway informing attendees that confederate flags were banned on the premises. They announced their opposition to free speech and folded to the mob earlier this month.

“The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry,” NASCAR said in a statement.

“Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties,” they added.

Big League Politics reported on how NASCAR stabbed their loyal fan base in the backs:

NASCAR has announced that it will no longer respect the freedom of expression of its fan base, and ban anyone from displaying the Confederate Flag at their events.

NASCAR made it official on Wednesday, announcing in a statement that the Confederate Flag “runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry.”

Former chairman Brian France tried to make this decision back in 2015, but its many southern fans revolted as a result of the proposal. NASCAR seized upon the violent Black Lives Matter uprising as their opportunity to piss on the heritage of its core fanbase.

Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr., a mediocre African-American NASCAR racer with no victories, demanded during a recent appearance on CNN that his feelings were more important than the freedom of the folks whose love for racing drives the sport.

“No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. It starts with confederate flags,” Wallace said.

The racing giant has been in the process of selling out their fans for years, which Big League Politics has chronicled. NASCAR turned their backs on the Bill of Rights and Constitution last year.

NASCAR may be the next entity to experience the “get woke, go broke” phenomenon, as they have blatantly alienated the southerners who have made them into a powerhouse.

Conservative-Friendly Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: First Woman to Play in Power Five College Football Game a “Make-A-Wish” Publicity Stunt

The voice of reason.

Published

on

Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN and Fox Sports writer and current OutKick columnist, did not hold back in his criticism of the Sarah Fuller publicity stunt and the subsequent reaction that called her a “hero” and a “trailblazer.”

Sarah Fuller is a goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team. But Vanderbilt’s football team, already having a dreadful enough of a season as it is, at one point did not have a kicker going into Saturday’s contest against Missouri—because of, you guessed it, COVID-19. So they turned to Fuller and added her to the roster, thus making her the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. (Power Five refers to the sport’s five major conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Vanderbilt is an SEC team.)

Her only appearance in the game—which Vanderbilt lost 41-0—featured her squib kicking the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line at the beginning of the second half and dashing to the sideline. That’s it.

So it was only a matter of time before Whitlock, who does not describe himself as conservative but is clearly conservative-friendly, bashed the virtue-signaling surrounding Fuller’s appearance.

“Sarah Fuller briefly made football socially acceptable for America’s most ardent virtue-signalers. That was her primary accomplishment, pleasing Make A Wish America,” Whitlock wrote. “I don’t believe she played football. She scored a point in the culture war.”

Whitlock acknowledges that Fuller is an elite athlete, given that she plays goalie for a Division 1 soccer team which just won its conference championship last week and is heading for the NCAA Tournament in the spring, but says that putting her in this situation only diminishes female athletes.

“I don’t blame Sarah Fuller. She’s an accomplished, high-level Division 1 athlete. She’s a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. She’s been baited into believing competing against men is her North star. Maybe it is. It shouldn’t be,” he wrote.

He added: “Sarah Fuller is an elite soccer player. She’s a terrible football player, arguably the worst to ever take the field in the SEC. The announcers during the game said [Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason] wasn’t comfortable using her [to] kick field goals unless they were inside the 15-yard line. There were pictures of her warming up in pregame kicking 14-yard field goals. Her athleticism does not need to be validated by competing against men in any capacity, let alone in a sport that is not her specialty.”

Whitlock also attacked “culture warriors” for hailing Fuller as “Jackie Robinson 2.0” and spending tons of money to prop up women as the athletic equals of men.

“There’s a lot of money being spent to create the illusion that women can and should be playing football against men. The people spending the money hate football. It epitomizes ‘toxic masculinity’… except when women are on the field. Football should also be shuttered because of the head trauma dangers… unless women are playing. Oh, and during this COVID pandemic, it’s irresponsible for these Power 5 schools to exploit these college athletes… unless there’s a woman playing.”

Read Whitlock’s entire op-ed here. Thank God the sports writing world has at least one voice who can speak the truth like this. As someone who used to write about sports myself, I’m well aware that there are far too few Whitlocks in the profession.
