Wimbledon Bans Russian Tennis Players, Clay Calls It ‘Social Justice Anarchy’

Videos by OutKick

Tennis players from Russia and Belarus will not be allowed to compete at Wimbledon this year due to Russia’s “unjustified” invasion of Ukraine, and OutKick founder Clay Travis said he thinks it’s mob rule and social justice anarchy.

“I think Wimbledon got it wrong,” he said.

“I don’t believe you should hold individual athletes who are representing themselves primarily, not their countries … I don’t believe you should hold individual athletes responsible for the choices for their country makes,” Travis said. “Particularly because we don’t even know what those individual athletes think about the invasion of Ukraine.”

“I disagree wholeheartedly with many of the choices that are being made by China,” Travis said. “I think China is committing genocide against the Uyghurs. I think there should be significant consequences at the global scale against China. I do not believe individual Chinese athletes should be disallowed from participation in the United States.”

Here’s everything Travis had to say:

  1. I just want to point out that we have seen browbeating and virtue signaling for years on alleged racism, sexism, and flinging open the doors to all things LGBTQ from the same crowd now openly discriminating against others based on their national origin.

    • Their public allegiance to progressive ideals is the 21st century version of the white hood they hide under. Hence why the most racist call themselves “antiracist,” the most intolerant claim to push “tolerance,” and those against democracy call themselves “Democrats.” Its how we came to get brownshirt wannabes called “ANTIFA” who claim they are anti-fascist. Or who claim they are feminists while claiming they can’t define a woman. Or a group who calls themselves “Black Lives Matter” who don’t give a shit about a black life unless it can make them money.

      While I think this is just now reaching its peak, its not new. Before failing upwards into the vice presidency, Kamala Harris and others were trying to repeal California’s Equal Protection Clause of our state constitution. Why you might ask? Because they claimed NOT being able to discriminate was discriminatory. Not kidding.
