The problem with trying to comment on topics such as the NBA’s total hypocrisy on China and Hong Kong is that things develop so quickly that it’s hard to stay current. But this development is so over the top ridiculous and disgusting that I have to write a post about it.
The NBA pulled an All-Star Game out of Charlotte because they didn’t like bathroom laws in North Carolina. Teams in the NBA have repeatedly snubbed the President of the United States because of Woke Social Justice Reasons.
They are incredibly willing to stand for something – as long as it costs them nothing.
And yet they willingly look the other way regarding a communist country.
