American life is going through a period of intense upheaval.
Rioters are torching cities and demanding the overthrow of the American way of life.
Rush Limbaugh had some bad news about what Americans will see when they turn on the TV.
Sports used to be an escape from politics and the problems of every day way of live.
Every major sports league in America as well as college athletics quickly bowed to Black Lives Matter and joined their cultural revolution.
Rush Limbaugh warned those days are gone and that it will come back to bite sports.
“They are being used by the cabal of Marxists that is attempting to tear apart this country. What in the world do they think is the advantage that’s gonna accrue to them by doing this? ‘Well, Rush, think gonna be showing solidarity with the players. And that’s — that’s everything. They gonna be all in it together.’ Yeah, well. Last I looked, the players were not investors in the league. They’re the ones being paid. So it just — history alone, it doesn’t make sense. Then I also, same show, made this point about some of the people really behind this,” Limbaugh began.
Limbaugh then described how the ESPY’s – ESPN’s sports themed version of the Oscars – began with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Trump hating women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe and WNBA star Sue Bird paying tribute to Black Lives Matter.
“So Sunday night on ESPN they did the ESPY Awards, and they had to do these things, of course, virtually because of the virus. So at the beginning of the 2020 ESPY’s, the host Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe, and Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird opened the 2020 ESPY’s with a message about sports and Black Lives Matter,” Limbaugh added.
The “woke” ESPY’s were a disaster with the show losing 81 percent of its audience from the previous year.
If that is any indication of what pro sports will face when they return, their race to embrace left-wing politics will drive away their audience.
