Cruz is urging the Justice Department “to closely monitor New York City” for potential religious discrimination amid the pandemic after its mayor singled out “the Jewish community” following the breakup of a large gathering of Orthodox Jews.

Ted Cruz took Mark Cuban to the woodshed earlier today in a back and forth on social media. The owner of the Dallas Mavericks started the altercation by mouthing off to someone who said they wouldn’t watch NBA games if the players knelt for the National Anthem.

When Ted Cruz responded, Cuban accused the Senator of having no balls, because that’s the kind of mature discourse we have these days.

Cuban has tried to raise his profile lately, though it was certainly already high, by being an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. This is just an extension of that, with him showing no ability to actually engage anyone’s concerns. If Cuban feels it’s proper to disrespect the country that has given these players so much, fine. But perhaps he should be a little better at PR than dismissing someone who says they aren’t supportive of such.

After Cuban went at Cruz, that’s when the bombs started to drop.

Oh dear. Asking anyone associated with the NBA is like pouring salt into an open wound. Cuban didn’t answer at first.

That’s when Cuban came back with a myriad of deflections, showing how much of a coward he is.

Someone is lacking balls here and it’s not Ted Cruz.

His excuse is that he only comments on domestic affairs. That’s absolutely laughable and shows just how beholden these people are to the CCP. They can’t even hint at criticism of the Chinese communists without fear of retribution and profit loss. They are truly putting money above lives, as China is currently committing gross human rights abuses against their minority populations (and to a large extent, have been for a long time).

Screaming orange man bad doesn’t make what China is doing go away, though Cuban would love for that to be the case. He’s comfortable turning a blind eye as he continues to rake in billions of dollars. He’s everything that’s wrong with our system. The NBA itself is a dumpster fire, run by cowards, from the ownership, to the administrators, to the players. We’ll see how much blood money they are willing to rake in before they stop shilling for a foreign adversary that’s putting it’s own citizens in concentration camps.
