University of Memphis’s Football Team Will Wear Helmet Decals with Radical Black Lives Matter Branding

Published

on

University of Memphis is making sure to jump on the radical leftist bandwagon.

On June 30, 2020, Memphis University Tigers football head coach Ryan Silverfield announced on Twitter that his team will don “BLM” stickers during the 2020 season.

“This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE,” Silverfield stated.

The BLM on the helmet decals is an acronym for the Black Lives Matter movement, with the university’s “M” tiger logo taking the place of the acronym’s M.

Silverfield tweeted this logo design a few weeks prior.

Dean Barker of Campus Reform noted that this decision is allegedly apolitical:

Despite Black Lives Matter’s support of leftist-backed causes, such as defunding the police,  Silverfield says he does not intend to take a political stance by using the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”

“The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes,” Silverfield said during an interview with The Memphis Commercial Appeal. “It doesn’t mean we support any anti-American, violent organization or hate group or any specific political party. In fact, I love this country and I love our players. Rather the decal is a show of support to our team.”

Baker highlighted some of Silverfield’s credentials:

Silverfield was named head coach of the Tigers on Dec. 13, after leading the Tigers to an American Athletic Conference title, an appearance in the Cotton Bowl, and a #17 national ranking as deputy head coach during the 2019 season.

Ever since the death of George Floyd, Silverfield has been outspoken in anti-racist views. He marched with several colleagues in Memphis Athletics’ recent “Unity Walk.”

“It’s not an overnight deal, but we’ve got to continue to grow and I’ve got to do a better job myself as a head coach because I understand that I have a platform, and I have to voice myself in order to have student-athletes backs and make sure they are not being treated unjustly in all walks of life,” Silverfield commented according to a report by WMC-TV.

Although a number of college athletes took part in similar protests, the University of Memphis’ football team is the first to announce that they will use a decal to spread BLM propaganda.

Silverfield emphasized that the decal will be used continuously during the 2020 season. He believes that the decals will “have an ongoing impact.”

“This can’t just be a one-time thing where I send out a tweet or have one unity march. It’s got to be ongoing,” Silverfield  during in an interview with The Athletic. “I can’t think of a better way to show support than to put it on display and do it in a proud way.”

University of Memphis President M. David Rudd declared in a statement released on July 2 that the team’s decal “does not represent endorsement of any political entity or affiliated group; it represents a commitment to social justice and American values we all embrace but have not fully realized as a country.”

“I support our athletic department, our head coach and our football team. I am proud of our young men for demonstrating leadership, encouraging civility, and for their genuine efforts to unite us so our University of Memphis family can become even stronger together,” he continued.

University of Memphis is the latest in universities jumping on the politically correct bandwagon.

More universities and sporting institutions will likely follow in the university’s footsteps, further cementing political correctness’ s hold on the body politics.

Rush Limbaugh Announces That His Lung Cancer is Terminal

Published

on

Conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh announced to his listeners Monday that his lung cancer is terminal.

Recent scans showed that the cancer has progressed despite much treatment and positive results. “It’s not dramatic, but it is in the wrong direction,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh announced his cancer diagnosis back in February. President Donald Trump honored the pioneering conservative talk show host with the Medal of Freedom at the State of the Union address shortly thereafter.

Here’s a transcript of what Rush said on his show Monday. Excerpt below:

From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, okay, that’s it. Life’s over. You just don’t know when. But when you get that diagnosis, I mean, that’s… So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.

And at some point you can decide, you know, this medication may be working, but I hate the way I feel every day. I’m not there yet. But it is part and parcel of this. It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.

[…]

Stage 1 is just a bunch of little nodules running around, and even if you got a scan that showed a bunch of nodules, they’d say, “Gotta keep a sharp eye on them. There’s some nodules here, some nodules there.” But it really doesn’t present as what it is (this type of cancer) until it’s stage 4 — and stage 4 is, as they say, terminal. So we have some recent progression. It’s not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction.

So we have to tweak the treatment plan, which we did, and the chemotherapy drugs in hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible. The idea now is to keep it where it is or maybe have it reduce again. We’ve shown that that is possible. If it happened once, it can happen again. So that’s the objective of the current treatment plan.

We here at Big League Politics will continue to keep Rush and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
