NCAA Issues Hostage Demands

The NCAA, putatively a nonpartisan college athletics organization, has now demanded that the sate of North Carolina laws enact laws that the NCAA approves of rather than those legislated by the representatives of the citizens of the state or the NCAA will not allow any special NCAA events take place in the state, like, forevuh!

It is specifically trying to promote laws favorable to “transgender” people rather than the vast majority of citizens of the state. It is estimated that “trangendered” people make up less than 1% of the population. In other words 99+% are supposed to bend over backwards to accommodate a confused <1%.

North Carolina’s representatives in Washington need to move against the NCAA and remove its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status since it has become highly politically active, in opposition to its charter. Additionally, the state should move against the organization in civil courts.

The NCAA has become nothing more than a political activist organization and should be treated as such. It is an ally of the Democratic party.

Interestingly, the NCAA has been very circumspect on allowing “transgender” athletes, there are very few of them, to play on the teams they want to play on. Of course hypocrisy is the mark of the liberal.

I have been boycotting the NCAA for awhile now… And found I can live without it. And it also bleeds ESPN. Join me!

Cavalier — The Other Meaning

As a Virginia taxpayer, therefore a funder of the University of Virginia (‘Mr. Jefferson’s Learning City’ UVA recruiters used to say in every other sentence to us high school kids decades ago), this story about the UVA men’s basketball team deciding to go Black Lies Matter/Colon Kaepernick is most disheartening.

Yes, nothing like kids who are getting a free ride to one of the more expensive and elite schools in the nation complaining about injustice and inequality. As a Virginia taxpayer I say enough, send the lot of them packing if they hate America so much. I’m sure they can find equal opportunity and justice in Africa.

Hey, notice something, look at the picture in question, that team is actually disproportionately black. I’m sorry, in the spirit of racial “equality” at least four of the darker skinned fellows will have to be booted off the team. If you don’t leave then that proves you are a racist, a bigot and a hypocrite.

Wait, to be truly “equal” and in line with social justice, half the team needs to be female. And then we can get down to racism and divvy the team up by skin color. So ultimately only one or two of the players can be black. Hmmmmmm, I suspect they didn’t actually think their “virtue signaling” all the way through. But then they are at a school, allegedly to learn. Too bad nobody actually teaches them anything useful.

We are reaping the whirlwind of decades of miseducation. Kids are at school to learn but they’ve been coddled to think they are geniuses and are there to lead. The only thing “taught” at campuses these days is liberal/socialist propaganda.

It doesn’t help that the NCAA has suddenly decided to become highly politicized itself. It’s hard to tell kids to calm down when some of the adults themselves are using sports as a political weapon.

It seems that we’ve reentered another period of “youthful” insanity.

The ’60s kids thought that somehow they could live in a world where everyone could sit around staring at their navel, getting high and slinging clay or playing music and somehow the world would continue to work. Food would get grown and delivered, the electricity would flow, products would get made, bad guys would be kept at bay, etc…

That didn’t actually work out.

And kids are still stupid… But, hey, they’re kids. Too bad they don’t understand that. They seem to think they are supposed to be in charge. If they aren’t there to learn maybe we can just shut the whole place down…

Why Does the NCAA Have an Office of Inclusion?

If you want a gander at where liberals are steering us, check out the NCAA’s “Office of Inclusion.” Here’s a world where people are measured exclusively on skin color, gender (especially deviation from the norm) and sexual preferences (definitely deviation from the norm).

This is an effort with the same mindset as the old German SS’s office of racial purity.

The home page is enough to make one shake one’s head for the future of our country, at least on the college sports front. The banner of “Inclusion” seems to cover a very narrow group of people.

Ironically, the office itself is very uninclusive — with a staff of six (and two ‘interns’) made up of exclusively blacks and white women, with one “Asian” male, who handles “International Student Athletes.”

You can bet the head guy, Bernard Franklin draws a nice six figure salary. I wouldn’t be surprised if the two “Director(s) of Inclusion” — one for “Gender Equity and LGBTQ” and the other “Race/Ethnicity and Student Athletes With Disabilities,” — were also six-figure deadweights. One has a doctoral in “health and sport studies” while the other sports a doctoral in “sport administration.” Reading the bio descriptions is both laughable and frightening in the academic gobbledygook that describes the enormous Academic Grievance Industry that is dragging academia into the pit of Hell.

Do I even have to say that both are very versed in Title IX????

Sadly, things get no better down the staff directory with one young woman whose “responsibilities include promoting inclusion initiatives in the areas of gender equity and LGBTQ support and programming. She also serves to support the Committee on Women’s Athletics and the Gender Equity Task Force.” Her bona fides include: “She wrote her master’s thesis on the FAIR Education Act, a California law that mandated LGBT curriculum in schools, and how it both supported and negated Queer Theory.”

It could easily be concluded that everyone in the office is way overeducated and an extreme liberal of the politically correct flavor.

Other than the “Asian” male, all the paid staffers are female — not very “inclusive,” huh?

There are two “interns.” One seems to be female though she looks more like a young Kel Mitchell in “Mystery Men.” The other is a black male who, in a politically correct faux pas, seems to have been involved in a Cinco de Mayo planning committee. But he makes up for it in his other PC activities.

The “News” section is typical PC gibberish though amusingly it has one story about how the NCAA now demands that cities interested in hosting championship events must answer a questionnaire about how that city is going to stop discrimination against attendees of such events.

You mean like discrimination against conservative white males that your own office clearly practices?

I once again reiterate my boycott of the NCAA and all its events.

NCAA Decides to Punish North Carolina

No, no, not the University of North Carolina and the long-running investigation of academic fraud and the university’s sports program’s relationship to a pair of black-oriented academic “departments” that handed out positive grades to hundreds of athletes over many years so that they could stay in school.

No, the NCAA would never drop the hammer on a powerful school like UNC — better to hammer small private schools for minor infractions.

What I’m talking about here is the NCAA deciding to punish the state of North Carolina for its refusal to grant special rights to sexually confused people (and sexual predators) to choose what restroom/locker room/dressing to use and not be prosecuted for trespassing as 99% of the population would be.

Admittedly, the NCAA’s protection of the disturbed, perverted or scary seems odd but it is an institution taken over by liberals. And they will use their institution as a hammer to get their way, help their allies or promote the destruction of decent society.

So to punish the insufficiently progressive state the NCAA has decided not to play any “Championships” in North Carolina.

Yet, if the NCAA feels that North Carolina is such a horrible place for its friends, that they are threatened or at a minimum proscribed in the very practice of their being (I pervert, therefore I am), why do they not demand that no NCAA games or events ever be played in the state?

Going to the bathroom or disrobing wherever the hell you want has never been a right. It’s not a right for anyone. We ALL have to get along and be cognizant of our neighbors.

Besides, these types of state and community codes  are long-established. These are not new and the LGBTQEIEIO community” has always understood that it need to curb its desires for the good of the community. This is not some kind of damaging stricture. It is a simple expectation that they will behave as everyone else in the state behaves.  No one is being tossed on a fire. It’s human history.

So, c’mon, tough guys, go for it. Don’t do the Nancy-Boy “Championships”-only tack but step up to the plate like men. If you feel that strongly on the “Championships” why doesn’t that translate to all the time? Or do you think the N.C. code of conduct only pertains to around “Championships” time? Well, it doesn’t.

All of which reveals that this move isn’t about some bizarre definition of “civil rights,” but is rather a power play. An allegedly academic organization is trying to control a whole state. To make it dance to the NCAA’s sick tune. To garner special rights for its friends to not be prosecuted for behavior that others will be.

It wants to make the state feel some financial pain.

And it makes it clear that the NCAA doesn’t respect the Constitution or the concept of individual states being different than other states or allowing them to mostly govern themselves.

Well, I encourage the state to hold strong. It too has weapons. It can withhold money sent by state schools to the NCAA — for the NCAA’s discriminatory practices (hang the libs with their own ‘equal access’ canard). If the NCAA has any operations (like all those NCAA games) in the state, its tax exempt status can be revoked and then sued for those moneys. North Carolina’s senators and representatives in Congress can do the same thing. The NCAA is a cash cow so forcing it to pony-up taxes will definitely be felt.

It also needs to understand that its demand for special rights for less 1% of the population, and a mentally unstable lot at that, is a hostile act against a far larger number of people.

And I’ll do my part. As sports is increasingly politicized, aggressively, by liberals, I find my sports watching options shrinking. I abandoned the NFL years ago when it decided that people like Rush Limbaugh were unacceptable. I had avoided most NCAA football games over a number of issues — favoritism shown to large state schools, the obsession with money, the chaos among conferences, etc. — fro several years. I had been watching small conference games for the most part. I abandoned the NBA earlier this year over Adam Silver’s decision to make the NBA an arm of the Democratic Party (they had been on probation with me for a number of things) and now I’m going to have to abandon college basketball and the other NCAA sports too.

I’m now watching more baseball, hockey and I’m learning golfers’ names on The Golf Channel.

As I’ve said, make no mistake on this, these people are at war with us. And if they have to they will destroy every institution in America to get their way. They do not hide the fact that they view themselves as creating a new America. They think the old one stinks.

And we are supporting our own destruction by supporting them.

One last, semi-related point. At the bottom of a Yahoo! Sports story on this topic was one of those recommended stories listings. Here they were: “A man punched and grabbed protesters at a Trump rally in North Carolina;” “One of North Carolina’s most prestigious universities is backing the NCAA boycott;” and “A man punched and choked protesters at a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina.”

Jeebus Frickin’ Christ, Yahoo! Can you be anymore liberal?

Addendum: The Atlantic Coast Conference has decided to follow the NCAA’s lead and pull out of select North Carolina-based events. This definitely could get some serious action since the basketball tournament has traditionally been played in Greensboro. There might be some actually legal maneuvering on that front.
