How about this, folks. Ratings crash for the NBA, for Major League Baseball after protest-filled debuts. Who was it that predicted this was going to happen? I think it was your host. As the NBA and the Major League Baseball returned from their coronavirus imposed hiatus, it appears that television viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer. With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games, a substantially smaller number of fans tuned in to the rest of the league's games. The openers did okay, but after that (raspberry).
So, folks, it is clear the American people, maternal, have no interest in watching BLM all on her the pitcher's mound, Black Lives Matter all over the signage in ballparks, they don't want to tune in and watch a bunch of players kneeling during the American national anthem. They just don't want to see it. And I hope the people of the NFL are watching this. I hope the people at the -- I doubt it because I think Twitter runs American sports now. I think Twitter and Nike are running professional sports.
But I'm telling you these ratings crashes have nothing to do with the fact there are not any fans in the stadiums, have nothing to do with -- it's the American people just don't want to be preached to by a Marxist, pro-communist organization while they are trying to get enthused and excited about the return of major league professional sports. It's not complicated to understand at all.
