In the continuing attempt by some to stifle free speech, several players and officials in the WNBA (the Women’s National Basketball Assoc.) have asked the league to remove an owner. Why? Because the co-owner of the Dream, Kelly Loeffler, has said that they league should not be supporting political causes and so should not be giving money to Black Lives Matter.
That’s it. People are saying that a business owner, in this case a team co-owner, should have her business taken away because she expressed her opinion. That’s pretty much it. She spoke out and had an opinion that is different than some. To these people, it’s not enough to disagree with what Loeffler said, she should pay financially for having an opinion.
We continue to see assaults on free speech and it is increasingly disturbing. People should be free to have an opinion and to express it, even if it’s an unpopular one. To suggest that someone should literally pay for expressing their opinion is very concerning.
