As they say, if you need a break from politics, turn off sports.
The social justice warriors in the sports media may claim that fans haven’t minded the far-Left takeover of sports in recent years — but they are lying. …
Ratings across all major sports were down in 2020. The NBA, the most political among them, lost over half of its audience in the NBA Finals, a Finals that featured its top individual and team draw, LeBron James and the Lakers. That’s not viewers watching less often, that’s viewers not watching at all. …
The players’ political and social stances were not moderate. They overwhelmingly echoed those on the (loud, angry, and far) Left. Because of the definitive slant, many center-right Americans lost interest disproportionately. 53 percent of Republicans said they watched sports less once social justice messaging became prominent. Only 19 percent of Democrats said the same; 14 percent of Democrats said they watched more.
These ratios shouldn’t surprise anyone. Athletes told Democrats they had it right. They told Republicans they were racist.
What’s telling, though, is that nearly 40 percent of Independents chose to watch sports less often for the same reason.
Hard to escape the noisy propaganda of a small activist minority.
You know they’d force us to watch their advertisements, if they could. Perhaps your vaccine passport will only be valid if you’ve logged enough hours of suitable content? Hmmm, I’m sure they’ve already thought of it.
