WATCH: Steve Kerr Attacks American Freedom While Ignoring China’s Human Rights Abuses

Published

The head coach of the Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr tried to link AR-15s and mass shootings with a question about Chinese human rights practices on Thursday.

After Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of Hong Kong protestors, NBA players and coaches have been put on the spot about China and protests in Hong Kong over the past week.

A reporter questioned Kerr about his previous visits to China and if he was asked about Chinese human rights abuses during those visits.

“No. Nor has our record of human rights abuses come up either,” Kerr replied. “People in China didn’t ask me about, you know, people owning AR-15s and mowing each other down in a mall. The world is a complex place and there’s more gray than black and white.”

Kerr’s refusal to not discuss human rights abuses in China is likely tied to China’s overall influence in NBA business dealings.  By criticizing China, the NBA could lose considerable revenue from the country.

As a result of Morey’s tweet, the Chinese government has already removed some NBA preseason games from its state television and shut down several NBA media events. Similarly, the Chinese Basketball League suspended its relationship with the Houston Rockets.

According to USA Today reports, NBA revenue from China stands at $500 million. The Sports Business Journal reports that NBA China is valued at $5 billion.

The NBA’s biggest stars travel to China annually to sell shoes and apparel for companies such as Nike and Under Armour, while other stars have major endorsement deals with Chinese companies. If the NBA witnesses losses in the Chinese market, the NBA ends up potentially losing a large amount of money.

In the U.S., it’s culturally in vogue to trash American institutions and traditions such as the Second Amendment while turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed by regimes like the People’s Republic of China.

In many ways the left and “woke” companies such as the NBA become strange bedfellow with authoritarian regimes like China when cases like these emerge.

Midterms 2022

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
