Professional wrestling is not immune from the social justice poison that is circulating throughout our culture, and legendary manager Jim Cornette has learned that the hard way.
Cornette was forced to resign on Wednesday from the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) for making an innocuous joke during a live broadcast on Tuesday. This shows how the wrestling industry has changed vastly since its heyday of controversial gimmicks and storylines, succumbing to politically correct norms like virtually everything else.
“Effective immediately: Jim Cornette has resigned from the National Wrestling Alliance. As an announcer on the November 19th edition of NWA Power, Jim made remarks during a singles match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch that were both offensive and do not meet the high standards of decency and good faith of the National Wrestling Alliance,” the NWA said in a statement.
“To ensure that such an error can never happen again, we’ve established new procedures of review for all NWA programming going forward,” they added. “We sincerely regret our failure in this regard.”
While Cornette was giving color commentary on a broadcast of NWA Power during a match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch (two Caucasian performers), he made a joking comment about one of the competitor’s toughness. This is the comment that has him in such hot water.
“He’s the only man I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia,” Cornette said.
This set off a social media witch hunt that immediately attached a racist connotation to Cornette’s harmless joke. He plans to talk about the incident during the next episode of his podcast tomorrow.
“Morning everybody! Heard any good jokes lately? This coming Friday’s Jim Cornette Experience (wherever you find your favorite podcasts) is liable to be a good one if you like hearing stupid people told what they can do with their stupidity,” Cornette wrote in a tweet.

The digital lynch mob celebrated on Twitter that they had taken Cornette’s scalp.
Jim Cornette the TV character is a bigot.
Jim Cornette the man is also a bigot.

It’s 2019. Get Jim Cornette and his racist, homophobic ass the fuck out of pro wrestling. I don’t give a shit if he’s done a lot for it that was a thousand years ago. Put him in a god damn retirement home now.

Jim Cornette’s racist blip on NWA Powerr not only existing but also making it past editing is a lot less shocking when you remember Billy “Social Justice Movements are the KKK” Corgan owns the company.

Here's the shittiest part: @TheJimCornette is not a bad talker. Quite the opposite.
Which means, he could have chosen literally any other way to make the same point.
Nope. He chose, very deliberately, to say what he said.
Fucking trash. Pro wrestling's better off without him.

Ironically, Cornette has been a huge critic of right-wing politics and President Donald Trump for many years. He regularly goes into tirades against the Republican Party and criticizes wrestling fans on social media who support the President.
Wouldn't you know who supports the asshole? Billionaire Shad Khan donated $1 million to @POTUS Pigface's inauguration in 2016 and "supports his economic policies". Just wanted everyone to know who they're dealing with. #TheMoreYouKnow

People should be bringing politics into everything until Trump is in prison & the world is safe again.

Now that he has become a victim of left-wing cancel culture, perhaps Cornette will finally reconsider his liberal beliefs.
Dept. of Education Determines Allowing Biological Males in Female Sports is a Civil Rights Violation
A victory for sanity against the LGBT agenda.
The federal Department of Education has determined that it is a civil rights violation to allow biological males, called “transgender females,” to compete in school sporting events with biological females.
U.S. Education Department’s civil rights office came to the conclusion that allowing so-called transgender females to participate in athletics with biological females has “denied female student-athletes athletic benefits and opportunities, including advancing to the finals in events, higher level competitions, awards, medals, recognition, and the possibility of greater visibility to colleges and other benefits.”
According to the The Associated Press, who obtained a copy of the 45-page letter, it is dated May 15. It pertains to a complaint filed on behalf of teenage girls last year in Connecticut who alleged discrimination from being forced to compete with biological males in high school sporting events. The feds claim that Connecticut has violated Title IX rules, and the state could lose federal funding unless they change the policy.
The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference does not seem to be budging on their stance despite the federal determination.
“Connecticut law is clear and students who identify as female are to be recognized as female for all purposes — including high school sports,” the athletic conference said in a statement.
“To do otherwise would not only be discriminatory but would deprive high school students of the meaningful opportunity to participate in educational activities, including inter-scholastic sports, based on sex-stereotyping and prejudice sought to be prevented by Title IX and Connecticut state law,” they added.
Roger Brooks, an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, says that the determination has broad ramifications and could protect the civil rights of biological women nationwide.
“Around the nation, districts are going to want to be reading this, because it does have legal implications,” said Brooks, who is representing the teenage girls who initiated the complaint.
“It is a first decision from the agency charged with enforcing Title IX addressing the question of whether males on the playing field or on the track are depriving girls of opportunities consistent with Title IX,” he added.
There is also a federal lawsuit that is currently active over this issue. One of the girls who was aggrieved due to these incomprehensible policies is pleased with the decision. She hopes this is the beginning of the end of institutional LGBT discrimination that is taking so many opportunities away from women.
“It feels like we are finally headed in the right direction, and that we will be able to get justice for the countless girls along with myself that have faced discrimination for years,” said plaintiff Chelsea Mitchell. “It is liberating to know that my voice, my story, my loss, has been heard; that those championships I lost mean something.”
The far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who are in favor of the pro-LGBT status quo, is angry that the feds stood up for civil rights.
“All that today’s finding represents is yet another attack from the Trump administration on transgender students,” said Chase Strangio, who shills for trannies while leading the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project.
“Trans students belong in our schools, including on sports teams, and we aren’t backing down from this fight,” Strangio said.
