‘Veep’ star riffs on impeachment story line: ‘Someone else might get to it first’

Published

on

Juila Louis-Dreyfus confirmed the liberal Hollywood bubble at the Emmy Awards Sunday night, with the expected and required swipe at President Trump. At least this one was funny, but not because she was trying to be…Dreyfus was being serious.

“We did have a whole story line about an impeachment but we abandoned that because we were worried that someone else might get to it first”

NBA’s bad week just got the Steve Kerr treatment

NBAs bad week just got the Steve Kerr treatment

The NBA is in trouble. They’ve bowed to Communist China. They quashed their own players and coaches. They’ve shown the backbone they displayed when being social justice warriors over transgender bathroom rights was a virtue signaling act, nothing more. Then yesterday, their chief social justice warrior, who happens to coach a team named Warriors, gave a response that was off the rails.

When he received a question wondering if he’s ever been asked about human rights while visiting China, he answered by condemning America. Seriously.

By comparing the atrocities that have been taking place in China for decades to our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms is ludicrous. China has killed more of their own people over the last 70 years than there are AR-15s in existence. For Kerr to make the false equivalence that America’s human rights abuses are somehow comparable to China’s is a perfect example of why politics and sports shouldn’t mix.

Twitter wasn’t happy with his comments.

In case there’s ever a shortage of off-base whataboutisms, we can store Steve Kerr’s comparison of China’s atrocities to AR-15s as a never-ending supply to replay again and again. The NBA has become a cesspool of communist idiocy.

Ted Cruz blasts NBA for pandering to Communist China

Ted Cruz blasts NBA for pandering to Communist China

It’s not the first time it’s happened. In fact, it seems to be becoming a trend. Conservative firebrand Senator Ted Cruz and socialist provocateur Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agree on something. This time, it’s the way the NBA is bending over backwards to cater to demands made by China, silencing their players and pressuring a general manager who Tweeted about Hong Kong independence.

When Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey Tweeted support for Hong Kong protesters, he likely didn’t realize he was stepping into a firestorm. He was probably unaware that Beijing is extremely paranoid, overly protective, and that their authoritarianism spreads well beyond their own borders. They didn’t like it and let the NBA know it. And the NBA caved to many of their demands.

Now, Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez are joining together to blast both the Chinese government and the NBA for their weak moves.

The Hill: Ocasio-Cortez, Ted Cruz join colleagues blasting NBA for ‘outrageous’ response to China

https://www.tedcruz.org/news/the-hill-ocasio-cortez-ted-cruz-join-colleagues-blasting-nba-for-outrageous-response-to-china/A bipartisan group of eight lawmakers fiercely criticized the NBA in a Wednesday letter to commissioner Adam Silver, demanding the league scale back its operations in China and take a stronger stand against Chinese government pressure.

The ideologically diverse coalition of lawmakers — including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — blasted Silver for the NBA’s initial response to China after the Houston Rockets’ general manager expressed support for demonstrators in Hong Kong.

I love the NBA. Correction: I loved the NBA. This is ridiculous and needs to be called out for the betrayal of American values that it is. It’s good to see both sides of the political aisle recognizing and condemning this outrageous debacle.

Liz Wheeler has a message to Steph Curry and the NBA about China

Some say the NBA is making a mistake by being so feeble against China while playing social justice warriors in the transgender bathroom debate. This isn’t a mistake. This is exactly what the NBA wants, and those who say it’s all about money are missing the point.

One America News host Liz Wheeler gets it. In her commentary, she lambastes future Hall of Fame point guard Steph Curry for playing ignorant about China’s offenses. And this is the real takeaway from the whole China-NBA debacle, that everyone from players to owners to coaches to the media realizes this is wrong and they just don’t care. They’d rather pretend to be ignorant of the decades of atrocities committed by Communist China rather than address the issues meaningfully.

As my colleague noted yesterday, it’s time to boycott the NBA. And as Liz Wheeler notes, either the education Steph Curry received in school was terribly lacking or the desire to cater to China is so overwhelming, the NBA will lie to save face.
