Celtics Legend Kevin McHale Chastised for Attending Trump Rally

Published

A member of the NBA Hall-of-Fame has been on the receiving end of a litany of scrutiny for doing the unspeakable – attending a Donald Trump rally in Duluth, Minnesota last night.

“Kevin McHale is extremely stupid for attending a public Trump event,” said Nathaniel Friedman of Victory Journal.  “That, as much as his politics, is why he should never work in the NBA again.”

Apparently holding political opinions considered disfavorable by radical leftists with blue check marks on Twitter is grounds for blackballing from future employment. But lawyer and sports commentator Clay Travis, who first reported this story, astutely observed that the rules are different for Democrats.

“Greg Popovich, Steve Kerr, LeBron, all of them can rip Donald Trump publicly & no one says a word about their jobs,” he said on Twitter. “But Kevin McHale, in his own private life, can’t even silently stand in the crowd at a Trump rally? The sports media has gone insane.”

NBA star LeBron James actually gave a speech at a Hillary Clinton rally in 2016, where he introduced “President Hillary Clinton.”

The outrage mob went further, attacking Lynn McHale, Kevin’s wife, forcing her to delete her Twitter account.

“Kevin McHale’s wife’s tweets are … ugh …” said The Score editor and Bleacher Report columnist Chris Hayden.

The seek-and-destroy leftists even targeted current Boston Celtic Gordon Hayward for following right wing pundits Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens on Instagram.

“hmm, Gordon Hayward’s Instagram follows make me think he could be OUR generation’s Kevin McHale!” said writer Jen Statsky.

How dare anyone in the sports world not share the political leanings of Democrats.

“Here’s the deal, if you hate Donald Trump, beat him in 2020,” Travis said in his column. “Posting photos of his supporters and attacking them online for attending his rallies just makes it more likely that Trump wins in 2020. Because moderate people like me, people open to being persuaded to vote for the best candidate, don’t support things like this.”

Travis is right. Deranged nonsense like this only pushes people towards Trump.

“I don’t believe grown men should wear NBA jerseys, but if I did, I’d go buy a Kevin McHale jersey today,” he said. “And while I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016 — I voted for Gary Johnson — let me tell you this right now, the next time Donald Trump hosts a rally in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee — I’ll be there.”

NBA Releases List of “Approved” Social Justice Platitudes for Players to Wear on Jerseys

No Hong Kong or China references.

Published

The National Basketball Association has approved a list of acceptable ‘social justice-‘ themed phrases that players will be permitted to wear on their jerseys during the upcoming season, allowing the league’s millionaire player base to repeat slogans largely associated with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The “approved” social justice phrases are, according to ESPN reporter Marc Spears:

Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor.

None of the phrases include any reference to the protests in Hong Kong crushed by the People’s Republic of China, a curious omission in light of the league’s crackdown on Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. Morey had expressed support of the Hong Kong pro-democracy and anti-Communist party demonstrations, only to be quickly silenced and castigated by league officials concerned that Morey’s remarks would cost them lucrative market opportunities in the communist country.

As major American sporting leagues degenerate into little more than a display of politically correct slogans and left-wing ideology, it remains to be seen if they’ll retain the cultural appeal they’ve traditionally had with a wide variety of politically and culturally diverse fans.
