The attacks on Barstool Sports by liberals never seem to end.
After Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy got the Twitter verse chattering when he decided to go toe-to-toe with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over unionization, the sports website founder could now find himself potentially having to fend off civil suits..
Well, that’s if Congressman Josh Harder has his way.
The pro-Big Labor bill, the “Protecting the Right to Organize Act” (PRO ACT), would effectively repeal right-to-work laws across the nation and penalize workers for not paying union dues, even in the case that the individual refuses to join the union. In essence, this bill gives unions the power to force workers to pay dues or risk getting fired if they refuse to do so.

But Harder’s amendment wants to take it a step further.
Under his amendment, “unfair labor practices” such as threatening to fire employees who support unionization, would be subject to civil penalties.
Harder’s amendment specifically cited Portnoy’s previous threat to fire employees who talked to the media or considered unionizing a month ago.
Portnoy has undergone increased scrutiny since his previous exchange regarding unionization.
In an NBC piece that tied Barstool Sports with toxic masculinity, Marie Hardin, the dean of Penn State’s college of Communications, declared that “Conservative ideology appears to be a core part of Barstool Sports — especially its portrayal of gender roles, with hypermasculine, sports-loving men and hypersexualized, submissive women. The site’s reinforcement of conservative American values is what makes its content stand out from its competitors.”
It’s clear that Barstool Sports is in the politically correct Left’s crosshairs.
The smear work on social media is done, and now the Left is ready to put the legislative clamps on the sports website and its outspoken founder.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages
In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.
She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”
Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”
Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”
With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.
They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.
The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
