Hong Kong protesters on Tuesday trampled LeBron James jerseys and gathered in a semicircle to watch one burn. James’ standing among basketball fans in Hong Kong took a hit over his recent comments suggesting that free speech can have negative consequences.
Fox Sports 1 reporter Jason Whitlock has been on a heater for the past week, dishing out beatdowns to the hypocritical NBA and its players who have kneeled before the brutal communist Chinese regime instead of standing for freedom in Hong Kong.
“NBA has given up on America. NBA business model is based on getting an NFL-like TV contract from China. If that means promoting Marxist ideas and a Communist point of view of America and Western culture, NBA, LeBron and Nike are all in,” he said on Twitter Tuesday.
It’s especially galling to listen to those who peddle hysteria about contemporary American politics pandering to the Chinese commissars. Apparently, those most prone to calling out pretend Hitlers can’t get themselves to say a negative word about real-world Hitlers.
In the midst of closing a merger between CBS and Viacom, Shari Redstone is quietly exploring a plan to launch a conservative TV outlet meant to square off with the Fox News Channel, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
This Redstone plan for a new TV service also would have a streaming component. THR has learned that Pluto, which Viacom acquired in March for $340 million, is about to launch an as-yet-unannounced streaming conservative news and opinion channel. A source says the idea for that network was in the works before the Pluto acquisition.
Five French women have been sentenced to between five and 30 years in jail for trying to detonate a car bomb near Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris in 2016.
The case is said to be the first to involve a group of women attempting to stage an Islamist attack in France.
They failed to ignite half a dozen gas canisters placed in the vehicle.
Inès Madani, Ornella Gilligmann, Sarah Hervouët, Amel Sakaou and Samia Chalel, now aged between 22 and 42, are all converts to Islam.
Teachers in seven Florida county school districts will soon be locked and loaded thanks to a state law enacted this month that provides schools with the option to allow teachers to carry concealed guns.
The law expands on a safety measure known as the “guardian” program. The program was created in response to the February 2018 Parkland massacre but did not allow teachers to carry guns, in part due to the recommendation of former Gov. Rick Scott. Under the original law, guardians were either non-instructional personnel who volunteered, or employees–such as school resource officers– hired specifically to protect students.
In cities and counties across America, local politicians have in recent months begun proposing comprehensive race-based policies such as redrawing school boundaries to dismantle schools with too many white or Asian students.
They have pushed for radical changes that have roiled even liberal-leaning constituents. The justification on all of their lips is oddly similar: “Equity.” The same buzzwords appear again and again.
After Joshua Brown was shot dead shortly after giving testimony in the controversial and racially charged Amber Guyger case, wild speculation began circulating across social media implying that police were responsible.
However, as the facts of the case emerge, it looks more like Brown’s killing was the unfortunate case of a drug deal gone wrong.
The plan, called Fighting For Justice As We Combat The Climate Crisis, asserts that “black families are more likely to live in neighborhoods with higher concentrations of air pollution than white families – even when they have the same or more income.”
Instagram will begin removing photos of people displaying the ‘OK’ hand sign and possibly banning users who do so under the company’s new hate speech rules.“We remove photos of hate speech or symbols, like swastikas or white power hand signs,” states the company’s ‘report’ function.
