Our Loudest Voices Have Exposed Themselves as Opportunistic, Temperamental Frauds

Total185 Celebrity status is reserved for opportunists. They grave-dance, take advantage of the moment, and wait like vultures to pick at the rotting carcasses left in the wake of a social justice mob stomping. It is all to build their brands, as well as their bank accounts. That is who our athletes and media members More

  1. Hey Bobby,
    Excellent article…makes all the sense in the world (the world we live in; not woke-world).
    Instead of talking about and anticipating sports returning, we’re already talking about how many people are gonna dump sports when the woke versions show up on TV.

  2. Excellent piece. There are two fundamental things at play here.

    First, the vast majority of self-appointed “elites” that the author describes — media, celebs, fake activist athletes — despise America. No hyperbole. (That they do so from behind the walls of their gated mansions and penthouses enjoying lives of affluence that Solomon might have envied does not produce the expected cognitive dissonance.)

    This country’s foundational principles of free speech, individual liberty, equal opportunity (not outcome), pluralism, God-given rights, objective truth — all of these are anathema to post-modern secular collectivists who view the world entirely through the prism of race and gender and have constructed a viciously tribalist grievance and spoils system enforced by government coercion and cultural ostracism for those who dissent. Pointing out that such people are brazen hypocrites with no fixed, guiding principles other than an unswerving commitment to their own advancement — while inarguable — is like lamenting that China is not sufficiently committed to human rights and government transparency.

    In the not so distant past, even those who found themselves on opposite ends of the political and ideological spectrum could find common ground in shared (often unspoken) assumptions about American values and the belief that our country, while flawed, imperfect, marked by the stain of slavery (like every other civilization in the history of mankind) was, on balance, a force for good in the world. A place where millions came to seek freedom and opportunity. A nation characterized by generosity and generations of warriors who fought, bled and died to end slavery, Nazi genocide, the evil of Communism and murderous Islamic supremacism.

    All that is gone. Decades of indoctrination by our institutions of higher learning has yielded a viciously intolerant priestly class which sees America as racist, imperialist, oppressive and evil. If you disagree, you will be silenced or punished. Witness Drew Brees’s struggle session and weep. The “mystic chords of memory” which join us as a people have been severed.

    Which leads to the second point. Mr. Burack notes that our sports media are illegitimate frauds who are not behaving as journalists. Again, this is indisuptable to anyone with eyes to see but beside the point: they don’t define themselves as journalists. They used to pretend, but no more. Their job is not to be neutral, fair-minded reporters; no, their job is to be propagandists for their enlightened world view, and to attack and demonize any who oppose it. This is otherwise known as “tolerance” and being on the “right side of history.” They embrace this mission without shame, regret or a nano-particle of self-doubt. So, no reason to be stupefied that a guy who calls himself a journalist would, from his company account, lob an F-bomb at a U.S. Senator for the sin of challenging the league he purports to cover: that’s his calling. Think of Woj and the rest as well compensated palace guardians and it all makes sense.

    What can we do to fix this state of affairs? Not a clue.

  3. Bobby, thank you for the work you and everyone else at Outkick are doing. These “brand builders” do not care about the violence they are promoting in inner cities. They do not care that more children will die if the police are defunded. They only care about their own “relevancy” and the checks they keep cashing.

  4. The EVIDENCE Movement has begun. We are countering the myths and lies perpetrated by the social justice warriors with our demands for EVIDENCE. They say: police are mowing down unarmed black men en masse — then they use anecdotal examples to support this claim. We say: show us the EVIDENCE; the numbers don’t support your claim. We say: the real problem is lack of father figures and black on black crime — and we HAVE the EVIDENCE. OutKick is terrifying the social justice warriors by using EVIDENCE to disprove their anecdotally-based and patently false claims. ROCK ON, OutKick.
