Topic: Media Research Center
It's been a while since we checked in on how Media Research Center sports blogger Jay Maxson has been spreading homophobia and transphobia from his (or her) NewsBusters perch. Let's see how that's going, shall we?
Maxson spent an Oct. 6 post whining about the existence of LGBT-themed baseball swag:
Peripheral topics scarcely related to the Major League Baseball playoffs are all the rage at SB Nation’s LGBT-obsessed Outsports blog. Writer Ken Schultz has ranked all 10 playoff teams according to their rainbow swag, and it’s no surprise that a Bay Area team emerged No. 1 on his pinkish list.
The San Francisco Giants earned the most love from Schultz, who admits to singing hosannas to them this summer for their “amazing Pride caps.” The team donated its Progress Pride cap to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and that means they “should finish No. 1 on this list,” he says.If it’s good enough for Cooperstown, it’s good enough for me,” Schultz raved.
All of this may seem trite and trivial, but it’s a subtle move by the alpha bet people to let professional sports know they’re under a microscope and expected to keep pleasing their needy LGBT masters.
Maxson seems mad that there aren't any homophobes as needy as he (or she) is.
Maxson repeated his (or her) attacks on transgender athletes, using an Oct. 8 post to cheer the right-wing Alliance Defending Freedom for "pursuing multiple lawsuits to challenge the administration’s insistence on turning female sports into a farce." On Oct. 15, Maxson accused Instagram of having "canceled a post undermining LGBT attempts to destroy the integrity of women’s sports" by removing "a post by biologist Colin Wright citing scientific studies proving that so-called male-to-female transgender athletes have clear-cut advantages over women," going on to sneer that "Instagram and its LGBT masters cannot handle the truth, and so they try to suppress it." On Oct. 27, Maxson complained that reporting on a new anti-transgender law in Texas made it so that transgender students are "banned from competing in sports," insisting that "The truth is that boys are eligible to participate in, or at least try out for, any boys team in Texas public schools."
Maxson spent a Nov. 23 post bashing basketball Dwayne Wade for the offense of refusing to hate his transgender child:
Want a “model” family that will make you a hero of the Left? Encourage one of your children to claim gender confusion and then tell the world how incredibly wonderful that is. This worked to perfection for former NBA all-star like Dwyane Wade, who said Tuesday night on Comedy Central's The Daily Show recently that his transgender son is developing into a beautiful young woman.
Papa Wade appeared with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show to promote his photo memoir, Dwyane, but the former basketball star’s support for the transgender movement is what was memorable. Noah asked him about his son Zaya (appearing at far left in photo), who assumed a female identity two years ago at the age of 12. Embracing the child’s gender confusion, Dwyane and his wife Gabrielle Union are considered among the best moms and dads ever by the Left.
Wade also said that when something like this happens to you, you have to look at in the face. Left unsaid was that he figuratively put his finger in the air to find out what reaction would get the best reaction from the LGBT Left, then go with the flow. Those folks are overjoyed and think he and his wife are parents of the year material.
Maxson concluded by accusing Wade of using Zaya "like a pawn for the transgender movement."
Maxson similarly melted down in a Dec. 22 post when the NFL similarly refused to hate non-heterosexual people:
The NFL wasn’t whistling Dixie earlier this year when it released a video identifying as gay, lesbian, queer and transgender. The NFL Network is following up on that bizarre PSA by running a GLAAD-pleasing feature right after Thursday’s 49ers-Titans game. The program, which replays Dec. 28, will profile five LGBTQ people on the impact of the Las Vegas Raiders’ Carl Nassib coming out of the closet earlier this year.
This NFL Network feature has got to be a very special achievement for Troy Vincent, a former pro football player and now the executive vice president of football operations for the NFL.
Vincent is practically the leader of the league’s virtue signaling to the LGBTQ cause. In October 2020, Vincent said to "all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we." The NFL issued a video then as well, stating “it takes all of us.” Also, NFL Films has previously featured the "National Gay Flag Football League.”
There’s no doubt about it. The National Football League is having a gay old time.
Of course, Maxson's homophobia is a form of virtue-signaling as well -- not to mention the reason he (or she) has a job writing for the MRC. You might also recall that Maxson and othe MRC writers lashed out at Nassib ealier this year when he tried out for and made an NFL team at the beginning of the season.
