The Whine of a Trumpian Lapdog
Georgia’s Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, says she’s “All About Georgia” in her latest campaign commercial.
She fails to identify which Georgia she’s referring to, but since she is a Trumpian lapdog, it’s clear that she’s talking about pre-civil rights era Georgia. The time before Martin Luther King uttered his famous words, “I have a dream.”
To make matters much worse for the Senator, she recently asked WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert to back down on the league and its players’ union’s plan to have players wear warmup shirts and jerseys in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Loeffler, who purchased the team in 2011, argued that while “the lives of each and every African American matter,” the political Black Lives Matter movement is “totally misaligned with the values and goals of the WNBA and the Atlanta Dream, where we support tolerance and inclusion.”
