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.
“That Stuff Ain’t Happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden Ticket”: Fox Sports Broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman Mock Military Jet Flyovers on Hot Mic
The top NFL broadcast duo at Fox Sports, Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, mocked military jet flyovers on a hot mic during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Aikman started it all by saying, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck responded sarcastically.
The most notable and outrageous moment came when Aikman then quipped, “That stuff ain’t happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”

How embarrassing and disgraceful. The NFL has already lost many conservative fans over its aggressively pro-social justice, pro-Black Lives Matter stance, so I guess it’s no surprise that its commentators and broadcasters would be liberal as well.
Many on social media are reacting to the Buck/Aikman hot mic by saying that the flyovers are a waste of money and that there’s nothing wrong with what they said. Aside from the fact that these flyovers are legitimate training exercises, none of them are focusing on Aikman’s last comment about the “Kamala-Biden ticket” (which is in the wrong order, if you didn’t already notice). He’s implying that flyovers honoring the military are nothing more than a partisan display that Democrats would prefer not to see. That’s shameful.
