Left-wing activists have come for the sports world.
They need ambassadors for their “woke” ideas.
But NBA star Dwyane Wade got booed after he made one statement.
Former NBA all-pro Dwyane Wade has become a spokesman for far-left radicals ever since retiring from the league in 2019.
Wade and second wife Gabrielle Union have particularly been outspoken on the transgender issue because Wade’s 15-year-old son with his first wife now identifies as a girl.
Wade recently appeared at Madison Square Garden because his Miami Heat are currently in a playoff series with the New York Knicks.
As he was leaving the arena, Wade was booed and one fan shouted, “Why did you mutilate your son?”
Wade confessed during a podcast interview that his son first came out as gay at “eight years old,” and after conversations with his schoolteacher began identifying as a girl a few years later.
Leftists are introducing children to sexual orientation and gender identity at younger and younger ages.
The idea of an eight-year-old identifying as gay drives home that point.
Wade is now being used by the press to attack Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on this exact issue.
DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education bill into law, which blocks public school employees from having classroom conversations about sexual orientation and gender identity with kids in 3rd grade and below.
During the Met Gala, Wade was asked by a reporter about Governor DeSantis.
Wade answered, “I don’t know him. But I do know men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t. I do know that when our children feel accepted … from their parents, from the world, it lowers the death rate. Suicide is high in the trans community. It’s high in youth, and so I’m going to step on the side of acceptance and I’m not going to even go on the other side. I’m going to focus on acceptance. Let’s make sure our kids have an opportunity to live this life that we all get to live.”

But suicide remains high among transgender youth even though societal acceptance is higher.
Transgender flight attendant Kayleigh Scott recently committed suicide even though Scott had been featured in a gender-affirming United Airlines commercial.
Wade and other people who have bought into the transgender cult propaganda are ushering their children into a demographic that is unhappy, and they are not helping by promoting irreversible hormones and surgeries.
Prior to the Met Gala incident, Wade claimed that he left Florida because of Governor DeSantis.
He said, “That’s another reason why I don’t live in that state…A lot of people don’t know that. I have to make decisions for my family, not just personal, individual decisions…I mean, obviously, the tax [situation] is great. Having Wade County is great. But my family would not be accepted or feel comfortable there. And so that’s one of the reasons why I don’t live there.”
Wade is all-in on the left’s radical agenda.
