National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver has doubled down on the league’s leftist activist support of transgender rights saying that the NBA will continue to look for ways to punish states that adopt a transgender bathroom bill that he doesn’t agree with.
This scumbag wants men who think they are women to use the same bathrooms that little girls use. This is the result of 8 years of Obama.
Breitbart reports that after making the extreme move last year to cancel the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina, over the state’s HB2 bathroom law, the NBA is now looking seriously at canceling events in the State of Texas should the Lone Star State continue down the legislative path of instituting a similar bathroom law. North Carolina’s HB2 Law mandates that people using bathrooms on state property use only those facilities that correspond to their birth sex.
Speaking to the media at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans just before All-Star Saturday night, Silver refused to say outright that the NBA would launch a boycott of Texas if it does pass a bathroom bill. But, he did double down on the concept of doing so and also stood up for the league’s move in North Carolina, SportingNews.com reported.
Silver said that if Texas passes such a bill he wasn’t yet prepared to say that would be a “bright-line test” for a boycott, but he went on to reiterate the NBA’s past statements on the issue of transgender rights.
“But what we have stated is, our values are league-wide values in terms of equality and inclusion,” Silver told the media, “that is paramount to this league and all of the members of the NBA family. Those jurisdictions that are considering legislation that is similar to HB2, are on notice that that is an important factor for us in deciding where we take a special event like an All-Star game.”
Silver warned other states that the league would seriously consider boycotting them if they join Texas and North Carolina by passing such laws.
Texas, Alabama, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington are all considering anti-tranny bathroom bills.
Meanwhile, ticket prices for the All-Star Game are plunging since the game was switched from North Carolina to a more liberal location, New Orleans.
Then of course Silver slammed Trump for being a racist and Islamophobic. Typical liberal bitch.
Government restrictions on travel, I am concerned about. It goes against the fundamental values and the fundamental ingredients of what makes for a great NBA and that is the very best in the world coming here. The current state of that travel ban, of course, is that it was struck down by the court. I have nothing to add to that.
My personal view is that, from a league standpoint, we have to look out for our players. We have two players who were born in the Sudan, where, my personal view is that we have to look at specific cases and see how that potentially can impact members of the NBA family. And then, play whatever role we can in providing information to the government and monitoring the situation.
Silver failed to note that no player in any U.S. sports league has been impacted by Trump’s travel order.
This guy has no place in MEN’S SPORTS.
Use the appropriate bathroom like we have done for centuries.
Just because we had a black Muslim president who wanted to FUNDAMENTALLY F*CK UP AMERICA doesn’t mean SHIT!
No, you freaks can kiss our all American asses.
Keep your crap in the closet where it belongs.
Enough of this sick crap.
Freaking whacked out misfits.
