Toronto Blue Jays’ LGBTQ+ Cultural Imperialism

The MLB franchise’s brainwashing operation is nearly complete.

The United States’ top hat, Canada, is more leftist than most Americans care to admit. It is proudly pushing its people toward assisted suicide, its “free” healthcare kills more people than it actually helps (particularly if you’re a cancer patient waiting on much-needed doctors’ appointments), and its radical transgender ideology is all-encompassing.

The latest and most pertinent example is from Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays. Their relief pitcher, Anthony Bass, recently voiced his opinion in favor of boycotting Target and Anheuser-Busch. Bass was then called on the carpet by the Blue Jays organization and made to give a public apology for his opinion. As columnist David Harsanyi put it, it followed the struggle session pattern: “First, the confession for wrongthink. … Then the apology and promise of reform.”

Bass should have stuck to his guns. For his flip-flop, baseball fans on both sides of the issue booed him at games. This, however, wasn’t the end of the Blue Jays’ woke saga.

As the New York Post reported, “Blue Jays manager John Schneider said the apology was a ‘first step,’ but it would take more than Bass’ initial words to make things right.”

The Blue Jays are making an example of Bass because there will never be an apology that will mollify the radical Rainbow Mafia. Plus, there was an interesting admission by Bass post-booing. In an interview this past Thursday, Bass said: “I stand by my personal beliefs and everyone is entitled to their personal beliefs, right? But I also mean no harm to any groups of people.”

Bass still wants to have it both ways. He wants to have that middle road. Sadly, there is no middle road anymore in the culture war. The gender cultists are taking no prisoners, as is perfectly illustrated by what happened next to the unfortunate Anthony Bass.

Bass was supposed to play a key role during the Blue Jays’ Pride Weekend with games against the Minnesota Twins. He was supposed to catch the first pitch, likely as a gesture of humility. Activist leZlie Lee Kam was slated to throw the first pitch.

But hours before the game on Friday, June 9, the Blue Jays announced that Bass had been designated for assignment. In other words, he has been cut from the team and the Blue Jays have seven days to trade him or put him on waivers. Bass didn’t ultimately catch that first pitch of the game; pitcher Kevin Gausman did instead.

What was the given justification for the disgraced pitcher being cut? Blue Jays General Manager (GM) Ross Atkins told reporters: “Performance is usually the driving one and performance was a large aspect of this decision. Distraction was a small part of it and something we had to factor in.”

Even though the GM insists that Bass is being replaced largely due to his performance not being good enough, the timing — just on the heels of the controversy and apology — is suspicious to say the least.

Clearly, they want Bass out of Toronto. Bass is a dissenting voice (albeit a faint and very wishy-washy one) that they cannot allow to taint the rest of the team. One bad apple spoils the barrel — or, in this case, it seems they needed to make an example to keep their other players in line.
