According to the Federal Election Commission, itemized receipts have shown NBA commissioner Adam Silver committing the max donation towards the Joe Biden campaign. Listed on Page 817 of the report, Silver even listed his occupation as “NBA / Commissioner.”
The news seemingly backs the claims made by our very own Clay Travis that the NBA is more interested in repairing a relationship with China than doing anything positive here in the United States.
“If the NBA players, coaches and commissioner want to argue the league should be making political statements in this country, which they clearly are with names on the back of jerseys changed to player causes and “Black Lives Matter” spelled out on the court itself, how in the world can the league express respect for communist Chinese values while tearing down American values?,” Travis has said.
This statement from Travis makes the point that the NBA, as a unit, wants to dismantle American values to secure financial stability with China. After China’s meltdown over tweets sent by Daryl Morey in support of democracy, Adam Silver and the entire league went dark. Conservatives echoed concerns over the NBA’s inability to back protesters in Hong Kong that showed their hand in politics.
The NBA continues to back organizations like Black Lives Matter, co-founded by a self described “Marxist”, while preaching for human rights here in the United States. Jason Whitlock thinks all involved in sports are threatened by the “thought mob”.
“If you publicly question Black Lives Matter, you’re smeared as racist and judged as unfit to participate in their exclusive fraternity. This is the kind of logic and behavior that fueled slavery, Jim Crow, the Holocaust and most human tragedies” Whitlock said.
Silver cements himself into the NBA’s fraternity by backing a candidate that agrees with the NBA’s agenda to attack straying points of view. That is to make no comment to the relationship that the Biden family has with the CCP.
Whitlock’s claim is backed by the lack of unique voices and actions in the NBA.
Rocket’s GM Daryl Morey was met by the mob to protect Chinese values and the freedom of thought was happily extinguished by Adam Silver and the NBA. According to Whitlock, Silver has no choice but to get in line with the mob. Rockets guard James Harden was also shunned for his face mask that appeared to support “Blue Lives Matter.” He would later explain he didn’t support the organization.
Donations from commissioners of sports leagues are common, as the NFL’s Roger Goodell is on record having donated over $18,000 in 2016 towards the Trump campaign. Adam Silver has chosen the Democratic party to best represent the NBA family and we’ll see how it turns out.
