>>Tucker: WE LIVE IN THE AGE OF WOKE CAPITAL. THAT MEANS IS NO LONGER ENOUGH FOR A COMPANY TO SELL YOU A PRODUCT YOU WANT TO BUY. THEY SELL YOU A WORLDVIEW WHETHER YOU WANT IT OR NOT. GOOGLE LECTURES ABOUT DIVERSITY. STARBUCKS TELLS YOU YOU ARE A RACIST, AND THE NBA IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS VIEW. THEY PULLED THE ALL-STAR GAME OUT OF NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE OF THE STATE’S POLICY ON TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS. NBA PLAYERS READILY MAKE LEFT-WING POLITICAL STATEMENTS AND THE LEAGUE APPROVES OF THAT. BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT THERE’S A LIMIT OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH OVER THERE IN BASKETBALL WORLD. OVER THE WEEKEND, HOUSTON ROCKETS GENERAL MANAGER DARYL MOREY TWEETED SUPPORT FOR THE PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTESTERS IN HONG KONG. THAT IMPLIED CRITICISM OF CHINA’S FASCIST GOVERNMENT. AND THAT WAS TOO MUCH FOR THE NBA. THE TWEET WAS DELETED AND THE NBA IMMEDIATELY GROVELED TO CHINA’S AUTHORITARIAN AMERICA HATING LEADERS. THE LEAGUE ISSUED AN APOLOGY, MAKING IT CLEAR THAT MAURY DID NOT REPRESENT THE NBA. HE MAY SUPPORT FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY, BUT THE NBA DOES NOT. J.D. VANCE IS THE AUTHOR OF HILLBILLY ELEGY AND ONE OF THE CLEAREST THINKERS OF MODERN POLITICS. WHAT DOES THIS TELL US ABOUT THE NBA AND WOKE CAPITAL, MORE GENERALLY?>>TUCKER, SOME OF THE EXAMPLES YOU HIGHLIGHTED, STARBUCKS PICKING A SIDE WITHIN AMERICAN POLITICS, TARGET PICKING SIDES WITH AMERICAN POLITICS DURING THESE COMPANIES’ POSITIONS MIGHT BE STUPID, BUT THEY CAN AT LEAST SAY THEY ARE CHOOSING THE SITE OF AN AMERICAN POLITICAL INTEREST. IN THE CASE OF CHINA, WHETHER IT’S APPLE HELPING THE CHINESE SECURITY STATE, WHETHER IT’S HOLLYWOOD BOWING DOWN BEFORE CHINA, OR IN THIS CASE THE NBA BOWING DOWN BEFORE CHINA, THESE COMPANIES CANNOT EVEN CLAIM THEY ARE DEFENDING AN AMERICAN VALUE OR AN AMERICAN INTEREST. I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS IT TELLS US IS THAT AMERICAN BUSINESS INTERESTS, IF THEY SEE THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR IN THE HANDS OF A FOREIGN RIVAL, THEY’LL GO AND CHASE IT EVEN IF IT’S NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY.>>Tucker: NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST? I MEAN, THIS IS OUR PREEMINENT RIVAL, ENEMY ACTUALLY I THINK FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE ON THE WORLD STAGE. A COUNTRY THAT’S ABOUT TO OVERTAKE US ECONOMICALLY AND MILITARILY. SIDING WITH THEM SEEMS LIKE A PROFOUND BETRAYAL.>>IT’S A PROFOUND BETRAYAL IN A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WAYS, TUCKER. THE FIRST IS WHAT YOU MENTIONED. I THINK WE ARE IN THE GEOPOLITICAL STRUGGLE WITH CHINA UNLIKE ANYTHING WE’VE SEEN SINCE AT LEAST THE EARLY 1930s WITH GERMANY. WE ARE NOT YET AT PHYSICAL WAR AND HOPEFULLY OF COURSE WE DON’T GO TO WAR WITH CHINA. BUT WE ARE IN A STRUGGLE REALLY FOR GLOBAL PREEMINENCE WITH THIS COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE AMBITIONS TO BE A GLOBAL SUPERPOWER. THAT IS NECESSARILY GOING TO TAKE THEM IN COMPETITION WITH US. THE OTHER WAY THIS IS A REALLY SIGNIFICANT BETRAYAL OF AMERICAN VALUES IS THAT CHINA ACTIVELY DOES SO MANY OF THE THINGS THAT THE LEFT SAYS THAT IT HATES ABOUT OUR OWN COUNTRY. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ISLAMIC PERSECUTION? THE CHINESE ARE RUNNING ACTUAL CONCENTRATION CAMPS FOR SOME OF ITS ISLAMIC POPULATION IN CHINA. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT TREATING GENDER MINORITIES FAIRLY, WHICH IS THE FAVORITE TOPIC OF THE LEFT OF THESE DAYS, GO TRY TO FIND A TRANSGENDER BATHROOM IN CHINA. FIND A TWO GENDER BATHROOM IN THE STATE OF CHINA. THEY ARE ACTIVELY DOING THINGS THAT PEOPLE IN THESE COUNTRIES ACTIVELY HATE. REPUBLICANS DO IT IT’S THE TARGET OF CRITICISM. BUT WHEN THE CHINESE DO IT, PEOPLE SEEM TO BE OKAY WITH A VIOLATION OF CORE VALUES. OF COURSE, TUCKER, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, THE MOST EGREGIOUS HYPOCRISY ON THIS FRONT IS CLIMATE CHANGE. IF YOU ACTUALLY BUY THE ARGUMENT ACHIEVING CO2 LEVELS, THE WORST OFFENDER BY FAR IS CHINA. THERE ARE A REASON THAT THEY GO AFTER AMERICAN CONSUMERS BUT DON’T GO AFTER CHINA AND THAT MAKES IT PRETTY CLEAR IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CLIMATE CHANGE, IT HAS TO DO WITH FRANKLY TAKING THE SIDE OF THE REALLY VILE REGIME OVER THE COUNTRY.>>Tucker: THE CHINESE DON’T HATE THEMSELVES, DO THEY?>>NO THEY DON’T, TUCKER AND THAT’S ONE OF THE CRAZIEST THINGS ABOUT CHINA. IF IT’S CHINESE NATIONALS LIVING OVERSEAS OR IN WESTERN EUROPE, WHETHER IT’S FOLKS WHO GO ON A STUDENT VISA AND COME BACK, IT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT CHINA IS VERY GOOD AT ENSURING ITS OWN CITIZENS ACTUALLY LOVE THE COUNTRY. I DON’T THINK THERE IS A WHOLE LOT LOVABLE ABOUT THE CHINESE NATION THESE DAYS, BUT THEY ARE VERY GOOD AT MAKING THEIR OWN CITIZENS PATRIOTIC. UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE A COUNTRY THAT HAS A LOT — WE HAVE A LOT TO BE PROUD OF IN AMERICA BUT UNFORTUNATELY A LOT OF FOLKS DON’T THINK THAT THIS COUNTRY IS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF. WHEN YOU’RE IN A GLOBAL GEOPOLITICAL STRUGGLE WHERE ONE NATION IS AFRAID OF IT’S OWN SHADOW AND THE OTHER NATION IS PROUD OF ITSELF, IT’S NOT TOO DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE WHICH NATION IS GOING TO WIN. I THINK BECAUSE OF THIS, TUCKER, WHEN REALLY IMPORTANT POINT IN ALL OF THIS, WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THIS STUFF USING POLITICAL POWER. YOU KNOW I’M A REPUBLICAN, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I DON’T LIKE ABOUT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THESE DAYS IS THAT WE ARE AFRAID OF ACTUALLY USING POLITICAL POWER. THERE ARE THINGS WE CAN DO TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THESE COMPANIES THAT ARE TAKING THE SIDE OF CHINA OVER AMERICA. AND WITH THE NBA, WE CAN GO AFTER THEIR STADIUM SUBSIDIES. WHAT HAPPENED LAST TIME WE HAD SIGNIFICANT POLITICAL POWER? THE VERY SAME COMPANIES TAKING THE SIDE OF CHINA OVER AMERICANS AND AMERICAN CONSUMERS GOT A BIG TAX BREAK. WE CAN’T KEEP DOING THIS. WE CAN’T KEEP SHOOTING OURSELVES IN THE FOOT.

  1. I stand with you China!
    Besides, it's not necessary, obligatory, compulsory to show NBA CRAP in China!
    Stand firm China!
    Stick to your Guns, China!
    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, I do NOT have any respect for YOU!!!

  2. They support their own control by China for money…
    Fighting hard to stay on any plantation.
    When you are controlled by money, you have to do what they say or the money is gone. Dummies

  3. BOYCOTT NBA!, That's why CCP said they could lead everything by their money. Shame on whoever has been sold their honor.

  4. If the DNC declares pedophilia acceptable tomorrow, all big companies would follow their example. They don't have any morals.

  5. When you cannot criticize evil, you are heading for hell in case you didn't know it. Forget the hand basket. That is the aim of the globalists. Apparently. I am trying to think of any reason that America should survive. Lip service to 'old' values no longer practiced even by churches does not qualify as something to fight for. In New York you get fined huge sums for lip service against evil. Amazing. Kelvin Cochran, Baronnelle Stutzman, Elaine Huguenin, John McAdams, Memory Pizza, that baker in Colorado. These were our points of decision. We have chosen poorly. In case you missed it: Although the baker in Colorado did win his case the state is still harassing him. They will eventually drive him out of business. McAdams eventually won his right to teach at Marquette but it took three years. Face it. The war is pretty much over. Sexual perversion (look at what the schools are teaching children), diminished 'rights' at every turn and a government hell-bent on gaining total control over the people have all but destroyed our nation's claim to being free.

  6. Maybe the NBA needs to move to Red China. They would fit right in. The players could take a knee against China and the CCP.

  7. This is why I love baseball. A truly democratic sport. Unlike the NBA or the NFL where you have to be at least 6 feet tall or a 300 pound steroid monster to compete.

  8. Money first democrats should campaign on that because that's how they see it .not our people they could care less about our rights & freedom, they want to tell you what to do , who would want this for your children or grandchildren?

  9. Political correctness is AIDS which attacks the immune system of a country so that the country can't defend itself

  10. The NBA can take their wokeness to China then. Let all of them move to
    China and try to advocate for the same positions they have here see where it takes them.

  11. Pay Chinese workers $15.00 US dollars per hr. That will change the conversation. It’s always about money. Maybe they will have to fight us. Maybe they might have to fight Japan. I hate to be the one to say it, but maybe a big fight might be the last and only choice.

  12. Just thought of something. Why don't the NBA make a deal to move and live in China from now on. They they can support Red China

  13. It's all about the Benjemens baby. Some people will sell their soul for the Benjemens. This is Communism. It's what the Democrats want for our country.

  14. Let these nba fools go play in China and blast China’s president like they do trump. And see how long it is till they disappear.

  15. These 'Beltway Capitalists' and 'Libertarian Free-Traders' aren't for Open Markets at all. They'll sell out their sisters like Tijuana pimps if it means getting more money. The only 'Green New Deal' they're interested in is money. These people do not love their country, they only only the Almighty Dollar–and they don't care if it smells like a Beijing outhouse or one of Xi Jinping's call girls, either. These people are vermin. The only 'sacrifices' they're willing to make is their manhood, their patriotism and our constitutional rights. What a bunch of snivelling weenies.

  16. American Establishments, corporations need the Chinese Market. Chinese companies can easily replicate what American companies are doing. If Americans have so much to complain about China and its policies why not stop doing any form of business with them? Have clothing companies like Gap, Old Navy, etc. have their clothing line manufactured somewhere else like… U.S.A. and be a proud a American wearing something that a fellow American made for you.

    You see, you don't go around pushing your values to others ESPECIALLY if you do not have full information or context as to why things are done differently somewhere else. While You have freedom of speech, others have freedom to respond to your speech, and that is something that you have no control over. So if want favorable results, know when and how to excercise your Freedom of Speech.

  17. Steve Kerr is a disgrace – a little man without any integrity – just making $$$$ off of the NBA – a truly pathetic person – here that little Steve – that is who you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. This is what happens when a sovereign country has a strong economy and a stronger government to not allow outside influence from no corporaition.
    You want our money stay out of our politics, good for China.
    Hong Kong belongs to China anyways.

  19. Wait, shouldn't they all be taking a knee to demonstrate against China's human rights abuses? Hilarious. We prattle on about the sin of slavery and oppression in our own country but the NBA, who has quite a few minority players the last time I checked, has to pucker up and kiss the rear of a country that still participates in those. But they'll have to get in line behind hollywood at the chapstick counter.

  20. They’re about 18-24 months from crashing from their respective fiat “fake economy “ see Fan Bing Bing, and other Chinese who are desperate to trade their currency for American dollars, With Trumps tariffs and they’re flooding their own country with fiat money, China is a paper dragon 🐉 , literally. All we have to do is hold on, but the problem is that they have paid off too many of “our lol” people in the right places. Jack Ma will fall off the next 2 foot ledge in France- especially bc he just signed his entire company over to 5 unknown families (CCP 😉) 🚫❤️🚫✝️👎

  21. they bow to China while excercising the freedom of speech. but opposing the national flag that many have shed their blood for has the right of speech.
    Cowardly

  22. They are hoping that if they side with them then they might be allowed to keep their business ect but they do not get if China was to take over it will take over all of the business and only allow them to be there if China feels it is needed.
    The UN has been moving power from around the world and giving it to China because they are getting ready for China to rule over the NWO while the 13 families control China from the shadows as they have always done.

  23. American sports Teams disrespect POTUS and the Country in a daily basis then they apologize to China? Let them go over there and play then, The U.S will not suffer without professional sports.

  24. So it's good to have collusion with China, but it's bad with Russia. NBA is colluding with China, while there's practically no case of such between Trump and Russia. Another classic case of Double Standard.

  25. Many of us in NC do not care if the NBA holds any events in our state. We love and respect our women and girls and believe they should be safe from people who just "call" themselves women but in actuality are not.

  26. The problem is that America has sold its values for money a long time ago. Including US governments. I remember not long time ago, Trump sold Saudi Arabia billion of dollars worth of weapons and that was after the Killing of Jamal Khashogi. So I don’t wanna hear Tucker attacking NBA for doing the same exact thing Trump and Obama did.

  27. Democrats support China because they actually believe in and support communist policies. Democrats don’t actually care about climate change, or race relations, or LGBT concerns, or elevating the poor, or anything else they claim to care about. They only care about promoting communism. They want total power, just like communists have total power. They want your mind, your money, your property, your children, your everything. You have no choice, no value, no religion, no speech, no life, in their world.

  28. No they do not get their citizens to hate their country……Americans ARE STUPID…but many Chinese HATE their government..ex. Hong Kongers taking to the streets risking their lives to stand up for freedom by WAVING AMERICAN FLAGS

  29. China is an ethnostate of one and a half billion people, 18.5% the world's population. The African population is expected to be 2.5 billion by 2050. We constantly support and defend the ethnostate of Israel. The Middle East and connecting area is never-ending War Yet who is everybody focused on crushing? The people who created the places you most want to live in, but I guess it's just magic soil that created the West. Who would like to live in Africa or China or the Middle East? I'm afraid I've been blackpilled because not enough of you are red pilled.

  30. Tucker and Vance hit the nail on its head and hammered it home. Their words and views are every bit truthful, sobering and thought-provoking. I only hope I could articulate like they do, so eloquent, lucid and compelling. Wake up, Americans! The fire-spitting red dragon is no longer your cuddlesome panda of yesterday! Know your biggest, most vicious and ruthless enemy and act now to defend your country and safeguard your children's future from the looming red menace!

  31. I was deeply appalled when I watch James Harden apologizing to China and expressing his admiration for the Chinese government in running their totalitarian regime. The reason for this is very obvious; money. NBA gave me a good reason not to watch them anymore.

  32. Sports always beats politicians. The NBA won big time. They sent a message and still have their popularity and get to be on TV in China. Look how well the NFL is doing this year! And how is Trump doing after taking on the NFL? On the edge of Impeachment. Republicans need to wake up and quit following right wing conservatives. These guys were all over the map in their conversation, clueless.

  33. Tucker is on thin logical ice here. He wants to disengage from the Middle East (bring the boys home), but he apparently wants to re-engage by placing the US squarely on the side of the Hong Kong protesters and also seems to want the US to insert itself into the issue of the relationship between China and Taiwan. It seems that Tucker wants rhetorical support for the protesters and Taiwan, but would not want to send US troops to back that up — he would probably agree with that assessment. In other words, he has no problem with talk; he just does not want to back it up with anything substantial. By that logic, we should support the Kurds by saying, "Good luck, guys, we're on your side. You're the best." But that's about the extent of our support. He needs to be consistent. If we are going to disengage, then disengage. Don't bring the troops home and shout slogans from the sidelines.

    My position is the relationship between China and Hong Kong was decided long ago when the British turned the area over to the Beijing. America had no problem with that at the time. Indeed, it was inevitable (the British lease had expired and Britain was NOT going to fight for it). Let's not be wishy-washy about this. We're either engaged globally or we're not. Realistically, China OWNS Hong Kong and also has a strong claim to Taiwan. That's just the political reality. Think not? Ask yourself, are you willing to go to war with China over Taiwan? Is it THAT important to you?

  34. Don’t offend China but it’s still fine to kneel during America’s National Anthem. No wonder why I stopped watching sports.

  35. The Hong kong people are more communist than the Chinese govt. Have you seen the video of the Hong kong protesters harassing an elderly lady trying to clean the streets?

  36. I'm not a Lib, but doesn't Trump act more like a communist dictator than he does a President? He breaks laws like a Saudi Prince and then says he's innocent when you know he's guilty! Come on man!

  37. The Sport Rapists Domestic Violence Thugs Druggies And Murders can fit right in with Thuggish China.
