Carolina Panthers Spanish-Language Broadcaster Resigns After Team Seeks to Censor His Support of Donald Trump

But on-field political displays are fine.

A longtime radio broadcast analyst of the Carolina Panthers confirmed that he had resigned from his position on Tuesday, citing an attempt from team officials to silence his public support for Donald Trump.

Luis Moreno Jr. has been a Spanish-language radio broadcast commentator for Panthers games since 2010, and some fans had raised questions as to why he was absent from broadcasts for the team’s first game. Moreno went on to confirm that he had resigned from his job to a reporter with the Charlotte Observer.

Moreno is citing what he describes as a censorship campaign from Panthers team officials such as Eric Fiddleman and Steven Drummond. He recounted Fiddleman contacting him at one point during this off-season, demanding that he remove any reference to the Carolina Panthers on his social media accounts, where he had tweeted and posted about his support for President Donald Trump and his reelection.

Drummond and Fiddleman have declined to comment on their purported attempts to muzzle Moreno’s personal social media expression. “If what they want me to do is stop supporting the president, I’m not gonna do that,” said Moreno of their demands.

In discussions with team officials, Moreno declined to shut up about his views. The immigrant from Mexico cited his independent contractor employment status with the team, questioning how they could seek to censor his personal social media accounts during a time frame in which he’s not even officially employed.

Basically what I told Eric, I said, ‘Listen … I’m not even under contract right now. I am not willing to participate in this project anymore if I’m going to be censored. So unless they call me, I’m not going to do it anymore. Because I am not OK with them censoring my freedom of speech in support of the president.’

I’m hurt,” he continued, “because this has nothing to do with my performance on-air. This has nothing to do with how good I am at what I do. I’m one of the best, and I’ll put myself against anybody in the country when it comes to what I do in Spanish. None of my support for the president was done on any of their social-media pages, it was never done on any of the airtime — whether it was a podcast or a broadcast or anything related to the Panthers. This was solely on my personal time on my personal accounts.”

The Panthers permit and promote political expression celebrating the Black Lives Matter street riot movement, with seven players kneeling for the national anthem during the first 2020 game.

The NFL is a joke at this point. Don’t give these overpaid babies your attention any longer.

New York Young Republicans Threaten to Sue Gov. Andrew Cuomo Following Attacks Against 1st Amendment

They will not bow to Cuomo’s tyranny.

Published

The New York Young Republicans are under fire from the Democrat establishment for planning to hold an in-person event as Gov. Andrew Cuomo is instituting another business-crippling lockdown.

The group is not backing down under fire, as evidenced by a Twitter thread from the group’s president, Gavin Wax. Wax has said that his group will strike back in court if state thugs unduly restrict their 1st Amendment right to organize politically.

Additionally, Wax appeared on the “War Room” podcast to discuss the entire situation on Wednesday:

Big League Politics has covered the New York Young Republican club as they have stood boldly against Cuomo’s persecution of Jewish groups:

A controversial crack down by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio against Hasidic Jews was met with sharp criticism by Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Earlier this week, many Hasidic Jews took to the streets to protest Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new restrictions on schools, businesses, and places of worship in nine neighborhoods with rising Wuhan virus cases.

The New York Young Republican Club criticized the de Blasio government’s “radical and inconsistent enforcement actions” against Jewish worshippers practicing their faith during, Sukkot, an important Jewish holiday.

In a statement it released on October 8, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club asserted that “The rights of all Americans to assemble, whether in religious celebration or protest, cannot and should not be infringed and even in a global pandemic can be observed with the proper safeguards and health awareness.”

The Republican organization called attention to how New York City leadership has messed up political priorities by “allowing extremism from left to continue unabated and un-policed, from blocking streets and bridges to looting and rioting, while not hesitating to condemn and disturb the peaceful exercise of Jews’ religious rites.”

In addition, it argued that “arbitrary application of regulations and safeguards under the guise of public health and safety reeks of selective priority and in a time when so many have died, while some turn to government and progressivism as a religion for comfort, others turn to God and de Blasio should not stand in the way.”

More populist anger is rapidly building against Cuomo and other lockdown proponents who want to replace the Bill of Rights and Constitution with permanent technocracy.

The New York Young Republicans event is scheduled to take place at 6pm tonight in an undisclosed location. The guests of honor will be Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and journalist James O’Keefe.
