Rob Drake, a longtime MLB umpire, is in trouble over a pro-Trump tweet. We’re just coming off the NBA’s shameless exposure of its censorship and suppression of any criticism of Communist China. Meanwhile the NFL and other elements of the sports world cheerfully celebrated Black Lives Matter, a black nationalist hate group, and protests against our national anthem.
You don’t need a very complicated chart to keep track of all this.
Lefty causes are in. China pays the bills and so it’s in too. But Trump and conservative politics are unacceptable.
For many people, sports is culture. And everything down to NASCAR, bends its knee, not to the anthem, but to the politics of the Left.
And, apparently, to Communist China.
As we question the place of some of the huge dot com monopolies in America, we’re also beginning to question the utility of MLB, the NFL, NBA, etc in American life.
In a statement Wednesday night, the Major League Baseball Umpires Association said Drake chose the “wrong way” to express himself while showing support for all umpires.
“Rob is a passionate individual and an outstanding umpire. He chose the wrong way to convey his opinion about our great country,” the umpires’ association said. “His posting does not represent the view of the MLBUA or reflect those of the umpires we represent.
Was there ever any expectation that every umpire supports Trump? Why exactly is his union expressing its opinion on his tweets?
Had Drake tweeted that the police are racist, would there be a similar statement?
Question answers itself, doesn’t it.
