Former Patriots Star Blasts Effect of ‘Leftist Ideology’ on Today’s Sports

Former Patriots Tight-End and military veteran Jake Bequette has had enough of the incessant march of radical left-wing ideology in the world of sports.

Bequette expressed his disgust with modern woke culture in an interview with The Daily Wire, in which he discussed the implications of Major League Baseball pulling the All-Star game out of Atlanta in response to new laws designed to prevent voter fraud.

As The Daily  Wire reports:

Jake Bequette, former New England Patriots tight end and United States Army veteran, went a step further than Huff and voiced his displeasure on the decision in an exclusive interview with The Daily Wire.

“Yeah, it was ludicrous,” Bequette told The Daily Wire. “The only losers here are the small business owners, who would have had a tremendous economic impact right there in Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs, from the All-Star Game. And it was just another attempt of virtue signaling by these pro sports leagues. You know, the hypocrisy, as I’m sure you’re aware, is extremely, extremely obvious.”

“The 2016 election obviously happened, the MLB hosted the 2017 All Star game in Miami, and Florida has mandatory voter ID laws and fewer days of early voting than Georgia does. And you can’t even really engage in the hypocrisy because it’s just transparent virtue signaling. It was MLB’s attempt to show that they’re on the side of the Left. It really is a shame because the people who are really hurt by this are the small business owners. A group that I’m working to help so it makes me angry.”

Eventually is not soon enough. At some time soon the tipping point will be reached and our freedoms will be irretrievable. Like China, Vietnam, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, Iran, North Korea and California.

China views American sports as a reflection of our freedom from the National Anthem to the unity of the fans.
So personally I see the use of racial tension orchestrated in sports to be another indicator of CCP disruptive tactics to divide America, tutt Teg Ning fans against the flag snd against our country. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWERS OF THE CCP!

Rob Manfred is a fing moron. He makes Goodell look like a man of strength and courage. That is hard to do Manfred, but you achieved it. Why don’t you educate yourself before reacting.

So glad to see some people are staying strong and calling the shots as it is so obvious to anyone with a somewhat functioning brain.
