2012: Media reaction when a white hockey player refuses to visit a (half) black president

Seriously, I’ve got nothing against black people in general or any other racial or ethnic group. But there is a specific circumstance where I’m an absolute, first-class bigot.

I despise mindless drones who willfully surrender their ability for critical thinking just so they can follow the rest of the hive.

Sure looks like LeBron James and Steph Curry have forgotten that not all that long ago, black Americans loved everything Trump.

I certainly won’t insult the readers’ intelligence by posting all those pics that numerous black citizens-of-note who leapt when it came time for a photo-op with The Donald. The same pics are easily found by way of a simple image search.

Anyhow, like the bleating sheep that they are, James and Curry have answered the call by the unholy trinity of the Establishment Media, Al Sharpton and Nancy Pelosi ordering the slave-mentality minded to condemn everything Trump.

Case in point: ESPN is singing the praises of James and Curry for both announcing that neither of their respective teams will visit mean ol’ Trump when the 2018 NBA champs will eventually be crowned later this month.

These two dim-wits are about as edgy as a bowling ball.

Predictably, the rest of the Establishment Media is screaming in the faces of whoever will listen to them how cool it is to boycott the White House.

But wait… is that the same ESPN who pilloried goaltender Tim Thomas of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup winners, the Boston Bruins? Yep, sure is.

Quicker than you could say double standard, Joe McDonald of ESPN penned back in January of 2012, his article entitled “Tim Thomas put himself above team”;

But when the president of the United States invites you and all your teammates to the White House to honor your Stanley Cup championship, you go and represent the team.

On Monday, Thomas instead chose to represent himself.

Yet another of the reliable liberal media dogpiling on Thomas was The Washington Post;

Goalie Tim Thomas declined the invitation, however, calling into question his choice to place his own political leanings over a team event.

Never missing a chance to hate on white folks, even the lily-white Leftie English at The Guardian chimed in;

In so boldly declaring himself an individual who made choices only on his behalf, Thomas neglected the very first and basic rule of sports: It’s a team game. You win as a team, you lose as a team, and you say hello to the president as a team. Thomas was a stand out in the Bruins’ Stanley Cup campaign, but he did it as part of a collective.

Hmm… “as part of a collective.” Locutus of the Borg couldn’t have said it any better.

But then there’s this gem by Dave Hodge of Canada’s TSN;

I’ll have an order of double standard, to go. Please share, thanks.
