Who’s more racist, Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham, or Chinese dictator Xi Jinping?
The radical left doesn’t know how to answer this question. On the one hand, they absolutely despise Fox News and all of its personalities — including Ingraham. On the other hand, they have to pretend to hate the communist Chinese government too, because it’s completely discrediting everything they say about socialism and how wonderful it is.
Of course, we all know the truth here. It doesn’t matter if Ingraham misspoke or not when she implored LeBron James to stay out of the political arena. If nothing else, she was just pointing out that no one really cares when a basketball player pushes a political agenda — why should they?
But, the NBA being in the pocket of Beijing seems to be provably true. The American-based company has absolutely nothing to say about the police brutality seen in pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, but will happily accept money from an authoritarian regime. Leftists want to blame this on capitalism, but that’s hard for us to wrap our heads around when the people behind all of this proudly call themselves communists.
