Loeffler leans in to Trump’s culture war in battle with WNBA – Roll Call

Posted By on August 6, 2020

Loeffler has repeatedly criticized the Black Lives Matter movement and decried what she calls the politicization of sports, so much so that several WNBA players recently wore T-shirts asking voters to support one of her opponents, Democrat Raphael Warnock.

For expressing their political preferences, Loeffler accused the women of participating in cancel culture.

We come together around sports, but promoting a political agenda divides us rather than unites us, Kelly said in a statement responding to the players. The lives of every African American matter, and theres no place for racism in our country. But I oppose the BLM political organization due to its radical ideas and Marxist foundations, which include defunding the police and eroding the nuclear family.

Loeffler recently sat down to talk about the WNBA protests with Jack Posobiec of One America News Network. As Jewish groups such as the Anti-Defamation League have pointed out, Posobiec was a noted Pizzagate conspiracy theorist. For the uninitiated, Pizzagate was a theory that Democratic Party operatives were running a child sex-trafficking ring out of the basement of Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in Northwest Washington, D.C. The conspiracy ended with a man driving up from Salisbury, North Carolina, with a .38caliber Colt revolver, an AR-15 rifle and a shotgun, and blasting the lock off a supply closet door at the restaurant where he believed kidnapped children were being kept.

From the interview and her previous statements, its clear Loeffler is attempting to walk a narrow tightrope. She has stated repeatedly that there is nothing controversial about the statement Black lives matter, and that of course, no one supports racism. Whether voters are picking up on that nuance, its hard to say. The Black Lives Matter movement enjoys wide popularity nationwide. But over the last week Loefflers campaign Twitter account has put out tweet after tweet railing against cancel culture, rioting in Portland, Oregon, and the Black Lives Matter movement. There is hardly a mention of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed 160,000 lives.
