It's bad enough that China subjects its own citizens to utterly Orwellian persecution and thought-policing. It's despicable that they are continuing to use their buying power to subject the citizens of sovereign nations to that same oppression, and it's shameful that anyone in the "land of the free" would bow to them.
It seems as though the National Basketball Association belongs to an entirely different nation. Surely an organization capitulating to the whims of a violently oppressive communist dictatorship half the world away is not an American organization, but their every move in the wake of the Daryl Morey incident demonstrates they have sold themselves to the People's Republic of China.
"...One of our best values in America is free speech. We’re allowed to say what we want to say and we’re allowed to speak up on injustices, and that’s just how it goes.”
Of course, it's the ultimate faux-pas in today's woke culture to utter anything other than the highest praises of the act of killing an unborn child. So, naturally, leftists cringed at Johnson's statements.
We ain't gonna last long like this, folks.
Thanks for looking out for us, Kap. Not all heroes wear capes.
