Hypocrisy knows no limits…especially when it comes to professional sports.
And the highly overpaid athletes entertainers somehow believe that their rapidly faltering fan base makes them “important” to society.
Ironically (or NOT), nothing could be further from the truth.
I’m referring to the NBA’s pandering commissioner, Adam Silver, who recently announced that players could put a message on their jerseys supporting their “social justice cause…” mainly Burn, Loot and Murder/Antifa groups.
This is professional sports hypocrisy on steroids.
It wasn’t long ago that the equally stupid NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, forbid the Dallas Cowboys from displaying decals on their helmets to honor the five Dallas police officers who were ambushed and gunned down by a sniper, Micah Xavier Johnson.
Johnson said he was angry over the police shooting of black men. He stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white police officers.
But none of that seems to matter today to the likes of Silver and Goodell.
They’ve shifted their tactics to desperation mode.
The NBA, NFL, MLB, NASCAR, etc. are all suffering from self-inflicted mortal wounds from pandering to “social justice warriors” to the point that the fans are finally starting to say “EFF YOU.”
For the most part, sports fans are very forgiving. They also have a tendency to overlook many athlete’s transgressions (Cough! Abuse of Women, Drugs, Alcohol, Domestic Violence, etc. Cough! Hairball Cough!) so they can get their weekly adrenaline rush and idol worship of someone who is really good at throwing a ball.
However, flagrant hypocrisy eventually causes even the most loyal fans to speak with their wallet.

This is yet another indicator of how 2020, The Year of Chaos is leading towards more violence and disruptions around the world.
It will get worse as time goes on.
Instead of shaking your head and saying “This is terrible,” learn how to prosper AND thrive in Turbulent Times.
Your financial future may just depend on it.
