Just the start?

Sports are really, really, really messing up right now. Basketball, baseball, football, etc., used to be places people could go to escape reality and watch grown men play a child’s game at a high level.

Now, though, and most likely forever more, sports and politics will be intertwined.

It’s here to stay, y’all. Most likely.

The head coach of the University of Memphis football team, Ryan Silverfield, announced that his team will wear “BLM” stickers on their helmets this season, apparently making them the first Division I football team to do so.

Silverfield tweeted, “This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE.” He told The Memphis Commercial Appeal, “The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes. 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.”

A statement from the school:

There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain over-the-moon absurd.

This professor from Chico State University managed to hit all the wrong buttons and firmly placed herself atop the list of most ridiculous people.

Check it out, via Breitbart:

A professor at Chico State (CSU, Chico) referred to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as “poison,” and suggested that she and other professors use the “immense privilege” they have as “tenured faculty” to protect students who are offended by their classmates exercising their First Amendment rights. The instructor told Breitbart News that the First Amendment allowing the school’s College Republicans to “voice their support for Trump and — the Republican Party” is “intensely hurtful” to many students on campus.

Professor Lindsay Briggs, who without question doesn’t understand what the First Amendment is about, whined “The First Amendment protects our Republican Club students to voice their support for Trump and their support of the Republican Party. That is intensely hurtful to many of our students on campus.

A tweet from Briggs:

Chico State — you have homework to do over break. Time to do an honest personal inventory and decide where you will stand as things escalate towards elections.

Briggs is, well, something else…

Just being a leech and drinking my socialist power juice while all these hardworking people show me how not poisonous they are by calling me names on the internet. Just another day in my glamorous life!

I needed a folder to keep all my love notes in 💕

The 1st week of class, I own my biases & tell students what they are. That way they can figure out for themselves if they agree with me or not. I tell them my classes build critical thinking skills & they are free to think whatever they want as long as they have thought it out.

So unlike many people’s presumptions, my classroom is a place to learn your own values and practice speaking up for your ideas. Hardly the indoctrination factory people seem to think it is. But then, you’d have to go deeper than tired attack points to understand that. Pity.

I don’t adhere to arbitrary codes of social conduct such a “politeness” & “being ladylike” or “being ashamed of my actions.” If that’s what you’re here to say, it won’t have an impact. And unlike Michelle Obama, I don’t go high because you go low. I will go lower. See above.

I was not born to be pleasing to others. I have an equal number of people who dislike me on the left and the right. My truth and justice don’t waver for popularity points. Love me, hate me, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s called self esteem and radical love of self. Try it.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
