Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy has been one of the men who has stood up in bold fashion against cancel culture, but now even he has folded to the left-wing mob under the pressure.
He groveled in an “emergency press conference” issued on Thursday that was posted on social media.
“I really viewed it as pure Barstool haters … it’s more about how much they f—in’ hate me. It’s the same thing they’ve been doing for two decades… and I wasn’t going to apologize because I knew I was trying to be funny. I wasn’t trying to offend. The intent was to make people laugh,” Portnoy said. “Here’s what happened: unbeknownst to me and something I didn’t plan on doing, I alienated a lot of the people who work for me now.”
“And guess what, I’m listening to what everybody in the room is saying. It’s one of the great developments of Barstool. Unlike when I started, I have enough dissenting voices now where I can listen. And listening to these guys, I want to have their f—in’ backs and will learn and I will be f—in’ better. I’ll never f—in’ do that again… I didn’t realize how much it affected them, me doing that rant because it hung them out to dry a little bit and that’s not what I want to do. I want to have everybody’s back who works for me,” he added.

Earlier this week, Portnoy boasted about being “uncancellable” to the mob after they attacked him over prior politically incorrect jokes he had made:
Portnoy is under fire because of comments he made in 2016 regarding entitled race huckster Colin Kaepernick, the washed up former NFL quarterback who cashed out for hating his country. He was joking during the segment, but context does not matter to the mob that aims to destroy all successful white people.
“So I’m going to say something that’s racist,” Portnoy said before explaining that he thought Kaepernick was “an ISIS guy… Throw a head wrap on this guy, he’s a terrorist.”
“He looks like a Bin Laden. That’s not racist,” Portnoy added. A colleague opined that Kaepernick “is not really that Black… I don’t think he speaks for Black people.”
Portnoy also published a Tweet in 2016 with pictures of Bin Laden and Kaepernick side by side, writing: “Anybody who disagrees with me saying Kaepernick looks like Bin Laden is a moron. #factsonly.”
“He just thinks Black are people are being treated unfairly, so he’s making a moral stand. Fine, I didn’t know he was Black… I don’t hate him — I hated him a lot more when I thought he was a terrorist,” Portnoy said in an additional clip.
He declared defiantly on Sunday night: “Memo to the cancel cops. I knew this was coming before you did. And I’m ready. You don’t cancel me. I cancel you.”
Portnoy talked a big game, but he has been assimilated like so many other rich and influential personalities. He has shown that he cares more about protecting his own bottom line than standing for open expression against the jackals.
50-Year-Old Transgender ‘Woman’ is Hailed as a Hero for Joining a Female College Basketball Team
This is mass insanity.
A 50-year-old transgender “woman” is being hailed as a hero for joining a female college basketball team and playing alongside girls under half “her” age.
Gabrielle Ludwig, born Robert Ludwig before “she” had a sex change in July 2012, is being allowed to play college basketball for the Mission College (Calif.) women’s basketball team. She is being called a brave trailblazer and receiving gushing profiles from the fake news media for engaging in this bizarre and troubling spectacle.
The nauseating USA Today profile on Ludwig reads as follows:
“Come out and be Gabrielle the player,” head coach Corey Cafferata tells her. “You worked hard to get here. This damn team in here, everyone has your back!”
Ludwig nervously runs her hand over the sock approaching the tattoo on her leg. She has long been eager yet apprehensive about this moment. Can she still play? What will she hear from adults in the stands? What will her opponents on the court whisper? And can she keep her emotions in check? Glancing up from the dirty rug, she says she is calm. She didn’t know if this day could ever arrive: Tonight, before spectators who will cheer and curse her, she hits the reset button on her life.
The profile noted (surprise, surprise) that Ludwig has a history of mental illness that includes “one failed suicide attempt, two failed marriages” and went into how Ludwig was taking hormones behind his wife’s back. His own daughter refuses to coddle his delusions.
They also noted that a female referee refused to shake Ludwig’s hand and many people gawk at Ludwig while “she” is engaging in this humiliating and demeaning spectacle. Even though LGBT insanity is being pushed on Americans, they still instinctively know this is unnatural and wrong.
The USA Today profile concludes:
With her knee wrapped, Ludwig pulls her car out of the dark parking lot and begins the drive back to Fremont to spend time with her partner and take an online quiz for her music course. Even in defeat, even when told of remarks of the two Siskiyous spectators, she says she has never been happier.
“I found a home with a bunch of dysfunctional lesbians, one deaf kid and a transsexual woman,” she says, laughing. “This is my home. This is the team I fit in. I am that missing puzzle piece. It fits.”
When Ludwig looks in the mirror she sees a father, a maternal figure, a veteran, a scientist, a life partner, and something she has been waiting more than three decades to say again: a teammate.
“Through camaraderie, we kind of figure out where the hell we are in life … ” Ludwig says. “We as human beings, we just want to be loved.”
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” a reporter asks.
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” Ludwig says. “Gone.”
She pauses for a few seconds, takes a deep breath and softens and slows her voice as her eyes remain glassy.
“Robert Ludwig is gone,” she says. “And the person you have is Gabrielle Ludwig with everything Robert embodied and was … That person [Robert] should be honored. He was a great guy. Robert is gone. He was a great father. His spirit is still here. It’s just that the spirit matches the body, as it should be.”
This is the new morality that is replacing Christianity in the former land of the free. America is in a death spiral that is showing no signs of slowing down with the military installation of Biden as president.
