Sports leagues have become absurd experiments for wokeness.
Countless professional athletes have gotten on board with progressive agenda.
But one NBA player who refused an anti-American protest made a huge announcement.
Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac is a rare commodity in the NBA; he’s an outspoken Christian conservative.
Isaac has been opposed to Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate, and he chose to stand for the national anthem in 2020 when all of his teammates kneeled.
Leftist sports journalists even mocked Isaac after he suffered a season-ending knee injury.

Now Isaac is teaming up with The Daily Wire to write a book about his faith and why he chose to stand for the national anthem.
“A lot went into my decision and part of it is my thought that kneeling or wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt don’t go hand in hand with supporting black lives…My life has been supported by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone is made in the image of God and we all share in His glory. Each and every one of us each and every day do things we shouldn’t do. We say things we shouldn’t say. We hate and dislike people that we shouldn’t hate and dislike. And sometimes it gets to the point where we point fingers about whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to simply whose evil is most visible.”
Isaac’s book “Why I Stand” is set to be released in May 2022.
Isaac has been one of the few athletes pointing out that Black Lives Matter the organization is a radical group that has nothing to do with “supporting black lives.”
The co-founders of BLM, Inc. are avowed “trained Marxists” who disdain religion and western culture.
The organization’s own web page said of BLM:
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
BLM literally wants to undermine the nuclear family in true Soviet style.
Sadly, sports media is even further Left than political media, but some are pushing back.

Perhaps more athletes will follow Isaac’s lead and resist the pervasive groupthink of the Left.
