POLL: Will you walk away from pro sports because of their politics?


The sports media applauds athletes for taking political stands on social justice, like we have seen over the last week. You may not see it the same way.

The proof is in the numbers. Breitbart's Warner Todd Huston says you aren't watching the NBA the way you used to.

"Ratings are down. It's obvious that fans are not coming back to professional sports, at least not at this time, anyway," Huston said.

The numbers are off 20% from last year in the NBA. President Trump thinks he knows why.

"They've become like a political organization. I don't think that's a good thing for sports or the country," Trump stated late last week.

But if you think it's going to stop, Huston says you're wrong.

"Even going down into college and high school. In 2016 and 2017 we began to see high school kids taking a knee," Huston explained.

And the sports media encourages it; going so far as to compare LeBron James to Muhammad Ali.
