Professional sports have become insanely political.
The dramatic escalation happened when Colin Kaepernick started the anti-American anthem protest.
Now one protester did something during an NBA game that will leave you speechless.
It was inevitable that the left’s encouragement of protests would lead to the insanity that happened at a play-in game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to The Daily Wire:
“Sarah Spain of ESPN later shared the group reportedly behind the protest — Direct Action Everywhere — which was protesting the killing of chickens at an Iowa egg farm owned by Taylor. The chickens were reportedly infected after a bird flu outbreak.”

Coincidentally, Taylor is in the process of selling the Timberwolves to baseball great Alex Rodriguez.

Sports and politics have been welded together in an unhealthy way.
When people tune in to an NBA game or an NFL game or any other sporting event, they want a respite from the constant drumbeat of politics.
The NBA is attempting to burnish its image after a series of ugly protests.
Many players protested after the killing of George Floyd, and the playoffs actually shut down for a couple of days after the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
TNT broadcaster Kenny Smith even walked off the set as a show of solidarity with the players.

The politicization of sports is only going to get worse because it keeps being encouraged by the Democrat Media Complex.
