LINN: An Eventful Week

The views and opinions expressed by our contributors do not necessarily reflect the opinions or positions of ClashDaily, Doug Giles, or the ClashDaily editors.

This past week or so has been quite eventful, and here is a list of what has occurred:

  • Old Joe Biden proclaimed March 31 to be the Transgender Day of Visibility, apparently unaware or indifferent to the fact that Easter fell on March 31 this year. He later said he didn’t do that, either referring to the day being celebrated in the past on March 31 or that his handlers were responsible.  I wonder how much of his behavior can be attributed to him being senile (given his age) or the fact that he is a lying, arrogant ass.  Also, why can’t the Transgender Day of Visibility be celebrated in June, a.k.a. Gay Pride Month?
  • At an Easter egg coloring event held at the White House, the kids were told not to paint any religious symbols, political statements, or anything considered to be offensive (i.e. anything prejudiced). First of all, I don’t think the kids are going to paint political statements or anything hateful on their Easter Eggs.  Second, Easter is a Christian holiday, so what’s wrong with painting religious symbols on the Easter Eggs?  The White House said it didn’t want to favor one religion over another.  Maybe they think Muslims will be offended, especially since it is the month of Ramadan.
  • Pro-Palestinian protesters disrupted the Easter Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Fortunately, they were removed from the premises.
  • Someone brought a trailer of Bibles to a church in Tennessee on Easter and set fire to them. It’s unclear who did this.  Atheists?  Muslims?
  • Kamala Harris stated that Women’s College Basketball did not have brackets (and hence a tournament) even though the NCAA began having a tournament in women’s basketball in the 1980s. Just how clueless is she?
  • The LSU women’s basketball team apparently is unable to stay clear of controversy. First, forward Angel Reese was involved in a verbal incident with one of the UCLA assistant coaches following the Tigers’ win over the Bruins. Second, in response to Los Angeles Times columnist Ben Bolch referring to the Tigers as “dirty debutantes”, point guard Haley Van Lith said his comment was as racist.  Actually, the term is sexist (something LSU’s coach Kim Mulkey pointed out), especially if you look the term up online and find a bunch of porn sites.  Bolch later apologized for his remark, while Van Lith is entering the transfer portal for the second time (she was previously attending the University of Louisville).  Why is she transferring again?  And is she part of the cancel culture/woke culture?  As for her social media posts in response to Bolch’s column, apparently she is not aware that athletes generally ignore anything said about them in the news media or social media, since they lead to focus on the game.  And if they do take issue with what is said about them, then they should notify their coaches, who, along with the administration, will address the matter.  And finally, the Tigers chose to remain in their locker room while the National Anthem was played prior to their game against Iowa.  Why is that?  Do they hate America?   Do they view America as a racist, sexist nation?
  • Prior to the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship Game, the University of South Carolina Women’s Basketball Coach Dawn Staley said that transgender athletes should be allowed in participate in women’s sports when a reporter asked her about that particular issue. The University of Iowa Women’s Basketball Coach Lisa Bluder was asked the same question, in which she replied she was more focused on the championship game between the Hawkeyes and Gamecocks than on the issue of transgender athletes.  Coach Bluder gave the correct response, whereas the same cannot be said for Coach Staley, especially considering the scholarships being lost and the injuries female athletes are sustaining.  At any rate, the Gamecocks prevailed in the championship game over the Hawkeyes 87-75, thus finishing undefeated for the season.  Meanwhile, it would be the final game for Iowa’s Caitlin Clark, who had thirty points, eight rebounds, and five assists.

Thus, it was an eventful week, from the controversies of the Biden Administration to the headlines from the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.
