SHAMEFUL: Barstool Sports Founder Dave Portnoy Caves to Pressure and Apologizes to the Mob

Et tu, Portnoy?

Published

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.

NBA, MLB Ratings Tank as Americans Tune Out of Social Justice Onslaught

Who cares, anymore?

Published

on

Major leagues such as the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball have struggled to attract their traditional audiences since beginning their seasons, with many speculating that an onslaught of social justice leftism presented to viewers has turned off sports fans from following.

Most NBA players have continued the ritual of kneeling for the National Anthem, raising questions as to why it’s even played before games when most in the arenas clearly don’t identify with it.

Even Major League Baseball, which leftists have been keen to castigate for insufficient allegiance to racial justice orthodoxy, bowed before the expectations of elite cultural liberals for American public life. The entire rosters of the Washington Nationals and New York Yankees kneeled before the anthem on opening day, a surprise to some, considering the playing of anthems before the game began as a tradition of baseball.

Many had assumed the viewing audiences of the major sports would swell in size, considering many Americans have little to no options for entertainment outside of a television or computer screen as the coronavirus pandemic continues. However, fans appear to be tuning out.

The Athletic sportswriter Ethan Strauss confirmed that both MLB and NBA ratings have been wholly disappointing since the sports leagues resumed play.

The ratings dip didn’t seem to apply to sporting events less associated with racial justice, with Strauss observing that a golf event featuring conservative quarterback Tom Brady was highly watched.

It seems the multimillionaire professional athletes of these ball games failed to realize that the everyday American would simply tune out of a contrived lecture in which some of the most privileged people on the face of the Earth lecture them on their supposed “privilege.”
