The NBA has become obnoxiously political over the last few years.
The Golden State Warriors received fawning press coverage for their harsh criticism of Donald Trump.
But anti-Trump superstar Steph Curry wants to build a wall after all.
Perhaps the Donald Trump proposal that received the most heat from the Democrats and their media allies was his pledge to build a wall along the southern border.
Trump’s wall was a direct response to unfettered illegal immigration, and rampant drug smuggling and human trafficking.
But the open borders left denounced Trump and even the concept of a wall itself.
Some of Trump’s biggest critics in the sports world were the Golden State Warriors, who are led by superstar point guard Steph Curry.
Curry called Trump an “ass” and he and the team refused to visit the White House when Trump was in office.
However, Curry seems quite fond of walls when it comes to his own house.
Curry and his wife Ayesha, who live in the posh Bay Area enclave of Atherton, opposed the construction of affordable housing units being built near their home.
Ayesha Curry wrote in a letter to Atherton officials, “As Atherton residents…we have been following along with the housing element updates with special interest in the 23 Oakwood property…We hesitate to add to the ‘not in our backyard’ (literally) rhetoric, but we wanted to send a note before today’s meeting. Safety and privacy for us and our kids continues to be our top priority and one of the biggest reasons we chose Atherton as home.”
Other neighbors in the community have expressed NIMBYism over the construction of affordable multi-housing units in the area.
Tech mogul Marc Andreessen and his wife wrote in a letter to city officials, “I am writing this letter to communicate our IMMENSE objection to the creation of multifamily overlay zones in Atherton…Please IMMEDIATELY REMOVE all multifamily overlay zoning projects from the Housing Element which will be submitted to the state in July. They will MASSIVELY decrease our home values, the quality of life of ourselves and our neighbors and IMMENSELY increase the noise pollution and traffic.”
Californians had the opportunity to recall Governor Gavin Newsom and elect Larry Elder, but they didn’t.
Now they’re getting a heavy dose of the bad Democratic policies.
Curry continued, “We kindly ask that the town adopts the new housing element without the inclusion of 23 Oakwood…Should that not be sufficient for the state, we ask that the town commits to investing in considerably taller fencing and landscaping to block sight lines onto our family’s property.”
So the Currys want a wall, but Americans concerned about constant waves of illegal immigration are simply out of luck.
The Currys are being forced to face the ramifications of their own ideology.
Newsom signed legislation to build more affordable housing throughout California, including in neighborhoods like Atherton, which is one of the wealthiest zip codes in the country.
One acre of land sells for roughly $8 million.
