After previously advertising they would wear LGBTQ+-themed warmup jerseys and use rainbow tape for their seventh annual Pride Night, New York Rangers players reversed course.
Who did the “advertising?” Was it the players, or someone from the non-playing front office?
The article continues to be nonspecific to the extent that on one knows who said what, or when, or why. Even the quasi-apologetic statement is like that:
“Our organization respects the LGBTQ+ community, and we are proud to bring attention to important local community organizations as part of another great Pride Night. In keeping with our organization’s core values, we support everyone’s individual right to respectfully express their beliefs.”
As PR intended to say nothing of substance, I doubt it could be bettered.
Needless to say, the Left is wetting its panties over the episode. You’re simply not allowed to have private convictions that differ from the Left’s gospel. It’s the state religion in our time.
The “LGBTQ+ community” is slipping into the same category as the race hustlers. There’s some point at which normal people – yes, it’s normal to be heterosexual and unconfused about one’s sex – will say “We’ve had enough” and exercise their anger on those groups in a fashion they won’t like. Where that point is, no one can say…but I definitely can say that we’re getting closer to it.
