The liberal lunacy of political correctness has gotten way, way out of hand over the course of the last few years, and has permeated nearly all parts of our culture.
College campuses were once the despondents dens of this democratic debacle, limiting the free speech of their students and determining what sort of Halloween costumes could be worn without “offending” anyone. Now, however, other aspects of American life are falling under the social justice sword, including the multi-billion dollar industries of the NFL and the NBA.
The National Football League’s morality debacle has been in the headlines for months as bratty, overpaid players looking for media attention have continued to disrespect the National Anthem by kneeling during its playing. This gesture has infuriated a great many Americans, who in turn began boycotting the league for its unwillingness to address the concerns of their fans.
Now it seems that the NBA could find themselves in a bizarre bit of social justice junk, as the term “owners” being used to describe those who “own a team” is being deemed offensive.
“Mark Cuban is taking exception to Draymond Green’s comments about team owners.
“Green said last week they should be called chairmen, as not to insinuate that they own someone, in the wake of Texans owner Bob McNair’s comment that the NFL ‘can’t have inmates running the prison.’
“Now, Cuban wants an apology.
“’For him to try to turn it into something it’s not is wrong,’ the Mavericks owner told ESPN. ‘He owes the NBA an apology. I think he does, because to try to create some connotation that owning equity in a company that you busted your ass for is the equivalent of ownership in terms of people, that’s just wrong. That’s just wrong in every which way.’
“Green was one of many athletes who took to social media to express anger regarding McNair’s comment, calling it ‘Donald Sterling-esque’ as part of a longer Instagram post.”
Again, we have athletes playing the roles of social scientists and attempting to implement out-of-control political correctness into our already functional society.
By redefining words, the left and their stooges are subconsciously pushing their revisionist rhetoric on the world at large. This plays into the same bizarre, faulty logic that has created opportunities for liberals to erase history in 2017 by removing monuments to men who lived in a completely different era with a completely different set of social norms.
