Now that the NBA has handed the progressive left a victory and made it a crime for team owners to hold politically incorrect opinions on race, the next phase of the purge can begin – excluding and exiling Christians for opposing gay marriage.
Earlier this week, Toure’ Murry, a player for the New York Knicks, told MSNBC the NBA now needs to target owners opposed to gay marriage. “Some of them are not the most savory folks. Some of them are bank rolling anti-gay marriage initiatives,” he said. Murry also said owners who support fracking should be ostracized.
AOL Huffpo piled on when Craig Crawford wrote that although Donald Sterling was booted for his private opinions on social etiquette, others with more dangerous political ideas remain.
“Doug DeVos, who owns the Orlando Magic and the direct-selling company Amway, gave the cash to the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage back in 2009 through his family’s charitable foundation. Much like the Chick-Fil-A folks,” he wrote on Wednesday.
Crawford was stunned that a boycott in response to DeVos’ personal beliefs went nowhere. “Not a peep from anyone associated with the NBA about the ‘values’ they are now touting,” he complained.
The lib echo chamber on Twitter soon began its war chant:

Mark Cuban’s slippery slope is now ramping up. “I think you’ve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It’s a very, very slippery slope,” said the owner of the Dallas Mavericks after the roasting of Donald Sterling.
Mr. Crawford and his lib pals are obviously upset that Doug DeVos was not punished for his Christian beliefs. He may yet suffer such a fate and, like Donald Sterling, be “fined” for crimes against the liberal orthodoxy and his money used to fund pro-homosexual marriage groups.
Sterling, after all, was fined and the money siphoned off to the PC agenda. Adam Silver, NBA boss, said “these funds will be donated to organizations dedicated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts that will be jointly selected by the NBA and its Players Association.”
Considering the political opinions of Toure’ Murry and others, we can expect additional confiscations and transfers of wealth to fill the coffers of the agenda-driven liberal left.
