Professional sports ain’t what they used to be. Thanks to the toxic politics of the entertainment industry, of course. Athletes and sports networks have polluted once wonderful pastimes with their hateful rhetoric.
American sports might never recover. Thanks to disgusting protests, the NFL has seen a record drop in support. While team owners were able to pound out an agreement, things might never recover. The millions of fans hurt by the protests won’t come back so quickly.
We also see it in the NBA. Multi-millionaire athletes bash Americans for their support of the president. They openly insult our leader and slander his reputation. What great role models for the kids!
It has resulted in the White House taking a strong stance against these un-American teams. Sports that should have no business with politics are disgracing our country. It will only get worse.
But there is a silver lining. At least one sport refuses to be tainted by the left’s hate.
On the heels of their Stanley Cup win, the Washington Capitals celebrated with President Donald Trump’s senior advisors, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, amid the president’s battle with professional athletes in other sports leagues…

The team’s celebration with Ivanka and Kushner comes after the president disinvited the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles from their celebration ceremony at the White House when a majority of the team chose not to attend…
Later, NBA stars LeBron James and Steph Curry both expressed a disinterest in visiting the White House following the league’s finals. On Friday, President Trump responded by indicating that neither the Cleveland Cavaliers nor the Golden State Warriors would be invited.
As for the Washington Capitals, the president is open to extending an invitation to the team.
Professional sports are in decline. For a variety of reasons. Younger generations aren’t as interested in them. They spend far more time playing video games and consuming online content. Rallying around a sports figure isn’t as important to them. That has resulted in a large decline in support, one that will only grow over time.
The many who still cling to sports as a pastime have fewer reasons to do so. Professional athletes are a disgrace to our country. They take home massive paychecks, are worshiped by the media, and live lavish lifestyles. Yet they turn around and scold Americans for support conservative views. Worse still are the athletes who criticize the country that allows them such lives. Pathetic.
Any athlete that insults our president doesn’t deserve the lives they lead. Okay, you can throw a ball around. Good for you. But your insults to our leaders is a stain on your professional. Right now, thousands of real American heroes risk their lives so that LeBron can throw a ball through a hoop. Yet these athletes will continue to parade around as God’s gift to America.
Don’t be surprised to see success among those who seek to end division in our country. Athletes, teams, and sports that reject toxic politics will enjoy more support from Americans. That includes the NHL and their champs, the Washington Capitals. Americans will find relief in at least one sport not exploited by the left.
But will other sports learn? Will they finally stop these pathetic stunts? Probably not before it’s too late.
