The Toronto Raptors decided to celebrate Women’s History Month by posting a video with players talking about why women are great. And why are women great? According to the Raptors? Because they can have babies.
My cmnt: “Out of the mouths of babes” Psalm 8:2 – Often from the mouths of the unsophisticated we get the pure truth. These guys spoke from their hearts and stated the simple truth that they wouldn’t be here today if their mothers had not born them. They could have added that women stick around and raise their children while the men often run. Obviously these young men did not absorb the nonsense of radical feminism and wokeism they were indoctrinated with in college.
My cmnt: What the Lib producers of this stupid video wanted were platitudes and bromides of liberal nonsense about how women rule the world, women are better than men, or how women can do anything a man can – or the real belief of liberal men in the ghetto and Hollywood: Women are so great because men can have sex with them.
My cmnt: The correct answer of course would have been to quote the Holy Scripture.
My cmnt: Gen 1:27-28 –Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
My cmnt: Gen 2:18 – And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.
My cmnt: Gen 3:13 – The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
My cmnt: Gen 3:16 – To the woman God said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”
My cmnt: And finally, 1 Tim 2:11-15 – Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
My cmnt: And if you think the Lib-Left went crazy by these gentlemen daring to mention that ONLY women give birth (since they now declare that men can also give birth) one can only imagine the hysteria that would have followed if one of these players had quoted the Bible. Liberal heads would have been exploding all across this great land of ours.
The video featured Raptors stars Malachi Flynn, Precious Achiuwa, and Scottie Barnes. The trio was tasked with each giving a reason why “girls run the world.” The “run the world” theme is a play on the Beyonce song in which she says, “Girls run the world.” A trend emerged quickly as Flynn said girls “run the world” because “they are the only ones who can procreate.” Achiuwa chimed in on the same theme by saying women are great because “they birth everybody.” Perhaps sensing a need to break the trend, Barnes said girls run the world “because they are queens.”
But, too late. The damage was done.
The video was quickly deleted after the organization was inundated with tweets from angry fans accusing the organization of sexism and being tone-deaf.
On Thursday, the Raptors issued an apology for the video.
“We’re an organization that prides itself on doing the right thing when it comes to inclusion and representation, and we made a mistake [Tuesday],” Raptors officials stated. “Our sincerest apologies to our players, our staff and our fans — we’ll work to do better today and every day after.”
If the Raptors do another video, the players will probably have a script.
