The world of sports has been assaulted by “woke” politics.
No longer can people watch sporting events without being swarmed by propaganda.
And Megyn Kelly tore one “woke” athlete to shreds.
Liberals will jump on any dubious “civil rights” claim without a moment’s thought because they don’t want to be accused of being “bigots.”
That’s why a huge swath of the Left has gotten on board with biological males competing against biological females in competitive sports.
Males are taking scholarships, championships, and accolades away from women in the name of LGBTQ+ “acceptance.”
Radical leftists have obliterated the definition of the word “woman” and this is the consequence.
Recently, a transgender cyclist won a women’s competition, but the second and third-place finishers refused to share the podium with the biological male.
Lesley Mumford, a former SWAT Team leader in Colorado, won the 100-mile Desert Gravel Co2Ut competition.
Mumford, 46, beat 43 women in the 40-49 category and wrote on social media, “I have no idea why so many people bailed before the podiums, but they did…I swear I wasn’t the only one in my age group.”
Inga Thompson, a three-time Olympian and medalist at the Tour de France, responded on social media, “The silent protests are starting! The women are refusing to stand on the podium with the man! Well done!!!”

Political commentator Megyn Kelly also had some choice words for Mumford.
The host said on her podcast, “[T]here’s a story every other day now about a trans person winning a women’s cycling event. Women’s cycling is all but gone to us — I mean it’s worse, I think, than women’s swimming.”
Women’s swimming has become an odd flashpoint in the culture war because biological male Lia Thomas dominated the women’s division at the University of Pennsylvania after being a middling swimmer in the male’s division the year prior.
Kelly added that Mumford was a male “until two minutes ago. Now he says he’s Lesley Mumford and has won in the women’s [race]…He suddenly decides he’s a woman, and goes and steals all their medals. No wonder [female athletes] are quitting.”
The gesture from the women in the race could be a sign that the tide is turning.
Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who was forced to compete against Thomas, has been calling for female athletes to speak out against biological males taking opportunities from women.
Gaines said, “Each day for the next week I’m going to call on well-known female athletes to take a stance on this issue because silence is complicity…we need their voices. Day 1: Serena Williams, Venus Williams, how do you feel about males competing against women?”
It is absurd that society has come to this point, but this is how truly insane the Left has become.
All of their bad ideas are currently on the table.
